Joy Reid Flips Out, Releases Unhinged Video After Trump Immunity Ruling


MSNBC host Joy Reid unleashed a torrent of criticism at the Supreme Court’s decision to grant former President Donald Trump immunity. In a landmark 6-3 decision, the Supreme Court vindicated Trump’s long-held assertion that he is immune from criminal prosecution for actions taken in his official capacity, including his controversial tweets prior to the January 6, 2021, Capitol breach.

Reid, known for her outlandish liberal commentary, made up a dire scenario where Trump’s reinstatement could lead to a total repeal of progressive 20th-century reforms. “This election is no longer about the old guy that’s in the White House now… It’s above me now. There’s a Waffle House next door. There’s a Best Western next door as well,” Reid ranted, dismissing current President Joe Biden’s role.

“Donald John Trump cannot be allowed back into the White House. Because if you combine that madman with this court, two of whose members are insurrectionists, one of whom flew an upside down flag at his home… You combine this court, two of whose members are going to immediately resign and put 30 year olds in there, including probably the guy who wrote the opinion in the beaters case, meaning that beaters should be able to get machine guns, which by the way, they have now arrogated to themselves the power to decide all federal rules, everything.”

“The century when super-rich white men, unchecked and untaxed, amassed great wealth, passed it down with no taxation to their descendants, and pretended that they had earned it on their own, that they were just masters of the universe,” Reid claimed. “They want that era back. They think that the 20th century was an abomination and they are dismantling it. They’re coming for every single one of our rights. They’re not done. They’re not done. If you love having your freedom, having the freedom for contraception, LGBTQ rights, that’s going too.”

In April the court heard arguments from Trump’s attorneys stating that his actions involving classified documents and J6, both central to his two federal cases, were protected under presidential immunity. Smith, the Biden Justice Department prosecutor, countered that Trump was acting as a private citizen when he allegedly took classified documents from the White House for his own personal possession and when he encouraged supporters to breach the Capitol in an attempt to prevent Congress from certifying the results of the 2020 election.

Justice Sonia Sotomayor, joined by Justices Elena Kagan and Ketanji Brown Jackson, wrote in a dissent that the court’s majority ruling “makes a mockery of the principle, foundational to our Constitution and system of Government, that no man is above the law.”
