Joy Ann Reid Asks LGBT Panel to ‘Grill Her’; Instead They Praise Reid, Trash Trump
STOKES: "And I think we have to recognize this for what it is. This is a part of a new political and cultural landscape in this country. It's search and destroy and this is a concerted effort by people that do want to roll back our progress to take down voices that are powerful. That are our allies and when you look at what's happening in Washington D.C., we talked about this move for progress that we experienced a decade or so, this administration has attacked our community more than 70 times since Donald Trump took the oath of office in ways that amount to the trans military ban. Taking us office the census and much more sinister ways like sending a clear message to business owners that it's okay to discriminate and we have to recognize this for what it is and recognize that as a Progressive community we have to remain with our arms locked because that's the only way we move forward together and we need to reward people for taking that journey toward acceptance. That's what it is and you're modeling that for the country right now."
REID: "I appreciate that. I truly do."
