MSNBC is getting kookier by the day and host Joy Reid has taken them to the next level of crazy.
Reid, who still hasn’t apologized or taken responsibility for flat out lying to her audience over her previous anti-gay blog went full-on tin foil hat.
On her show, Reid, “warned that President Trump — aided and abetted by that dastardly AG Bill Barr — might be planning to ‘expand his power under the guise of national security’ to achieve the goal he has ‘always’ had: ‘reigning as a monarch with unlimited power rather than serving as a mere president in a democracy.’”
Aren’t’ these the same people that are demanding President Trump use his executive power to do more to fight the pandemic?
Here’s the full transcript of what Reid said thanks to Newsbusters, just so no one could say she was taken out of context.
JOY REID: Now, in this show yesterday, constitutional law professor Laurence Tribe of Harvard University confirmed what we suspected all along: that Cuomo was right, and Trump had no constitutional authority to claim he could quarantine whole states. And right on cue, Trump almost immediately backed down, tweeting that he has advised the CDC to issue a travel warning, but that he determined a quarantine will, quote, not be necessary.
Not necessary? Man, try not legally possible! But go off, Apprentice guy — go off!
Of course, it’s hardly news that Trump has always had designs on reigning as a monarch with unlimited power, rather than serving as a mere president in a democracy. But with the country facing an unprecedented public health crisis, what lengths might he, backed by an Attorney General whose writings and actions point to a fundamental belief in an all-powerful presidency — at least when the would-be king is a Republican — what lengths might Trump go to, to expand his power under the guise of national security?
Throughout this crisis, Democrats have attacked President Trump for not exercising more power. The media and Democrats have pushed for a national lockdown, commandeer industry, and nationalize medical supplies.
President Trump has taken a measured approach with federal assets like field hospitals. When President Trump was asked about the location of the field hospitals being sent to Washington State his response was wherever the governor wants to put them.
MSNBC continues to getting nuttier every signal day.
