Donald Trump’s Twitter attack on MSNBC host Joy Reid set off a round of criticism of the president, with some noting that the president has once again attacked a woman of color.
On Saturday morning the president smeared the “AM Joy” host and professed to know nothing about her, yet his tweet seemed to show that he is very aware of her work covering him to say nothing of her book about him.
The president wrote, “Who the hell is Joy-Ann Reid? Never met her, she knows ZERO about me, has NO talent, and truly doesn’t have the “it” factor needed for success in showbiz. Had a bad reputation, and now works for the Comcast/NBC losers making up phony stories about me. Low Ratings. Fake News!”

Trump is melting down faster than the Nazis at the end of Indiana Jones.

It's just another morning at the WH. Watching tv and whining.

Sorry, but @JoyAnnReid has got your number and when it comes to talent and reputations…a sexual assaulting, scam-running, fake reality show hosting, child-raping fraud should keep his mouth shut. #reiders

You are so good at promoting shows on MSNBC. I am sure they are truly grateful!

I've met her. She could knock your sorry ass into the middle of next week blindfolded while eating a sandwich and juggling chainsaws.

So you don’t know her and never met her but you know she has a bad reputation? 🤔 pic.twitter.com/CXJwcE7p2Z

I wonder why you don’t have the guts to attack Michelle Obama.
You scared, bro?

She has a show that’s still on the air and not canceled, unlike you, fuckface.

You know exactly who @JoyAnnReid is, but to refresh your memory, she is an award winning journalist and cable TV news host who brings in huge ratings. I'd say that's the 'it' factor you say she doesn't have. Oh, she's also black. Is that what you mean? You are a repugnant racist

Joy-Ann Reid is a strong black woman who already endured massive online bullying multiple times and survived it all. She is resilient. This latest attack from the President of the United States will not faze her in the least and in fact will boost her profile on MSNBC.

Another attack on an African-American woman. Joy is one of the brightest minds in journalism.
