Joy Ann Reid went on a rant on MSNBC’s “The Last Word,” where she painted President Donald Trump as the evilest thing imaginable while portraying former President Barack Obama as a saint.
“If you think of the presidency as a national avatar, Obama is who we hope we are, and Donald Trump is who we fear we are,” Reid said on Wednesday.
“Right that there’s something sort of, guttural, about Trumpism, where it’s like, playing to all of your base fears of other people, your anger, your rage, your neediness,” Reid continued. “The core of his need is the black hole inside of him, is kind of what America fears the crass part of ourselves is becoming.”
Reid then compared Trump to Obama, claiming that Obama was the model of what a president should be while choosing to ignore multiple scandals from his administration that were revealed in 2017, including the IRS admitting to targeting conservatives and his decision to end federal investigations into the Islamic terrorist organization Hezbollah.
