Trump ‘pulled the ultimate BBQ Becky’: Joy Reid destroys the racist push to get critics to ‘self-deport’

Published

on

MSNBC anchor Joy Reid declared that Donald Trump “pulled the ultimate BBQ Becky” with his racist attack on young women of color in Congress.

In 2008, a woman became known as “BBQ Becky” after calling the police on a black family having a barbecue in an Oakland park. The 911 dispatcher who received the call wondered about BBQ Becky’s mental health the ordeal was so surreal.

“Well, for the last three years there’s been this agonized national debate, is Donald Trump a racist? Does he realize that the thing he just said is exciting racists and white nationalists? Does the thing he said this time finally prove he’s a racist?” Reid wondered.

“After decades of clear evidence of racism, Trump clearly knows exactly what he’s saying and to whom, and as president, he has consistently backed up his racist talk with policy,” Reid reported. “He’s putting real racist policy on the table, designed to excite racially anxious white Americans and to terrify people who aren’t white. So, yes, Donald Trump is really racist, fini.”

“This weekend Trump added to the ledger targeting four black and brown Democratic congresswomen, Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Ayanna Presley (D-MA) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), to punish them for criticizing his hideous immigration policies, including locking Central American men, women and children in crowded cages where they are told to drink water from the toilet,” she reported.

“Trump pulled the ultimate ‘BBQ Becky’ telling them they don’t belong here,” she concluded.

“Now, to be clear, this was the man who called America a loser and trashed everything about this country while he was running for president. Everything. But now if you don’t like Donald Trump’s version of America, self-deport,” she concluded.

Mulvaney’s ‘astonishing public act of legal self-destruction’ can be used against Trump: ex-prosecutor

Published

on

In the opening segment on CNN's "New Day," former prosecutor Elie Honig claimed he was stunned by acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney's press conference on Thursday, saying he just handed prosecutors all they need to go after President Donald Trump.

Speaking with hosts Alisyn Camerota and John Berman, the former prosecutor  could only describe Mulvaney's presser, where he admitted that the administration was indulging in quid pro quo negotiations with foreign governments to get dirt on political opponents, as an "astonishing public act of legal and strategic self-destruction."

‘They have a responsibility to not be stupid’: MSNBC’s Morning Joe slaps Trump’s ‘ignorant’ rally-goers for swallowing Trump lies

Published

on

MSNBC's Joe Scarborough blamed President Donald Trump's supporters for failing their most basic civic responsibility by remaining willfully ignorant and swallowing his lies.

The president claimed his betrayal of the Kurds was actually keeping them safe, despite credible reports of war crimes against them by Turkey, and the "Morning Joe" host challenged rally-goers to open their eyes -- and believe what they see.

"It's the responsibility to people that show up at those rallies to not be stupid, to not be so stupid that they should be kept away from blenders," Scarborough said. "All they have to do is spend three seconds actually watching the news, all they have to do is spend three seconds on Google, spend three seconds talking to somebody that is not completely brainwashed to see that this is a horrible deal for the Kurds."

‘This was the smoking gun!’ MSNBC’s Morning Joe explains why Mulvaney ‘confession’ could end Trump presidency

Published

on

MSNBC's Joe Scarborough said White House acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney had offered "smoking gun" evidence in a stunning confession to the crime at the heart of the impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump.

The "Morning Joe" host said Mulvaney had made a stunning "confession," but he said the president had on the same day endorsed the ethnic cleansing of the Kurdish allies he had betrayed to Turkey.

"There's so much to talk about, we joke for a few minutes at the top of the show, Mika likes do that, me, I like to get straight into the news," said Scarborough, who frequently annoys his wife and co-host by bantering about sports at the start of the show. "But there's so much going on that if somebody just woke up this morning they might not think that yesterday was not one of the most significant news days in, during the Trump presidency, and I may even argue one of the most significant news days over perhaps the last decade, just in terms of volume."
