‘Then he becomes a head of The Apprentice, where he pretends to be a business mogul — but he actually failed business!’

Joy Reid Slams Trump for Viewing Presidency as a TV Show: ‘Might as Well Have Props and a Jingle’ (Mediaite)

On Thursday night, MSNBC host Joy Reid blasted President Donald Trump for remarks he made in an interview with The New York Times.

In a wide-ranging interview, Trump insisted that the media will actually want him to win reelection because they need him for “ratings.”

“We’re going to win another four years for a lot of reasons, most importantly because our country is starting to do well again and we’re being respected again. But another reason that I’m going to win another four years is because newspapers, television, all forms of media will tank if I’m not there because without me, their ratings are going down the tubes. Without me, The New York Times will indeed be not the failing New York Times, but the failed New York Times. So they basically have to let me win. And eventually, probably six months before the election, they’ll be loving me because they’re saying, ‘Please, please, don’t lose Donald Trump.’ O.K.”
