Joy Reid Blasts ‘Right Wing Vitriol’ and ‘Distorted Takes’ on Ilhan Omar’s ‘Out of Context’ 9/11 Remark: ‘A Shocking New Low’
REID: "Wow. Ruport Murdoch's New York Post piled on with this incredibly inflammatory cover on Thursday. And then last night Fox News superfan Donald Trump took things to a shocking new low. Tweeting out a graphic video of the Twin Towers burning interspersed with that single snippet of the Congresswoman’s speech. We're not going to show you that video because it really is so inflammatory it falls into a category where most news organizations wouldn’t even play it on TV. And yet it was released through the preferred public information tool of the President of the United States. Making it akin to an official public statement. And many are calling Trump’s tweet and that video an incitement to violence against the Congresswoman, particularly since it comes just one week after a self-declared Trump supporter was charged with threatening to kill representative Omar."
