Trump supporter freaks out on MSNBC’s Joy Reid after she calls the president an ‘authoritarian’

Published

on

An avid supporter of President Donald Trump had a major meltdown on MSNBC’s “AM Joy” on Sunday morning after host Joy Reid referred to the president as an “authoritarian” setting off a wild ten minutes of over-talking and Reid having to cut her guest off multiple times.

During a panel discussion on the president,the MSNBC host asked Tracey Winbush, president of the Ohio Black Republican Association, to defend the president after observing, “Donald Trump has ticked off all four of the markers of autocracy.”

‘I represent all of the party as a Republican,” Winbush shot back. “I am here because we’re Americans. and everything that you said about the president authoritarian or authoritarianism, none of that means anything because you are not understanding leadership.”

“The president is the leader of the free world and he has to make decisions and we need to respect that,” she continued. “The journalists don’t want to cover the truth or the facts — they have never have. They have never told the truth about the vice president.”

“Wait a minute, hold on, hold on. let’s have a conversation. because you said journalists don’t want to on cover the facts,” Reid cut in. “That is not true.”

“But they don’t,” Winship argued.

With that, host Reid ticked off multiple examples of Trump bullying U.S. allies, to which the president’s supporter stated, “We also need to understand that you don’t know everything and he can’t tell you everything that is going on. And in the moment we need to let a person lead, but right now, we’ve never allowed that to happen with the presidency of President Trump.”

What followed was the two talking over each other until Winship declared that President Trump is part of God’s plan — during which some of the other panelists either smirked or appeared appalled.

Published

on

A brutal new ad from the GOP group The Lincoln Project called "War Zone" is attacking President Donald Trump for becoming what Americans have feared he would.

He didn't come out of hiding this week to help calm the nation or to bring Americans together.

"He wasn't there to offer words of calm and comfort," the ad said. "Instead, he became what we all feared. Evoked the worst of our past. Threatened our governors and states. He ordered our own soldiers who fought in Iraq and Afghanistan to flood the streets, instructing them to turn against Americans. Used churches and the Holy Bible as political props. He didn't invoke the Lord to give us wisdom, but to boost his polls."

James Mattis takes swipe at Trump: We have gone ‘three years without mature leadership’

Published

On Wednesday, The Atlantic reported that President Donald Trump's former Defense Secretary James Mattis has written a furious condemnation of the president, saying he is incapable of "mature leadership" and accusing him of deliberately trying to turn Americans against one another.

“I have watched this week’s unfolding events, angry and appalled,” wrote Mattis, according to the article. “The words ‘Equal Justice Under Law’ are carved in the pediment of the United States Supreme Court. This is precisely what protesters are rightly demanding. It is a wholesome and unifying demand — one that all of us should be able to get behind. We must not be distracted by a small number of lawbreakers. The protests are defined by tens of thousands of people of conscience who are insisting that we live up to our values — our values as people and our values as a nation ... We must reject and hold accountable those in office who would make a mockery of our Constitution.”
