Trump delusion syndrome in action.
MSNBC correspondent Joy Reid just lost her marbles on air when she claimed that Trump’s patriotic celebration of Independence Day that he has planned for tomorrow is really evidence that he is a tyrant who aspires to be a “Mini-Putin or Kim Jong Un,” as she puts it.
Reid said that the “message” of Trump’s 4th of July party is a threat to all Americans meant to intimidate citizens by displaying Trump’s so-called lust for absolute power.
Take a look at this crazy clip here:
Joy Reid seems proud of her statement, as she reiterated on Twitter:
However, most American citizens that Reid claims are being put under "threat" by Trump's huge 4th of July celebration don't seem to agree (no shock.)
Check out how Twitter is responding to Reid:
The Washington Examiner had the following to say about Reid's view on the 4th of July parade scheduled tomorrow in Washington:
MSNBC host Joy Reid said that President Trump’s planned Independence Day celebration that will feature tanks is threatening to Americans and that the president “styles himself a tyrant.”
Reid was discussing the “Salute to America” event, which will include a massive fireworks display, flyovers by military aircraft and Air Force One, and military vehicles on the National Mall. She compared Trump to dictators who use military weaponry in parades and said Trump “sort of aspires to be a mini-Putin or Kim Jong Un.”
She contrasted Trump’s event to France’s Bastille Day celebration, which also features military vehicles. She said that France’s celebration is done in defiance of tyranny, while the president’s planned celebration is not.
The Washington Times also commented:
Ms. Reid said allies around the world — and critics within the U.S. — should be wary of Mr. Trump’s “Salute to America.”
“What is the message Donald Trump is trying to send by rolling tanks down Constitution Avenue? Who is that message to?” the host asked Tuesday, Real Clear Politics reported. “It’s certainly not to tyrants because he likes tyrants. He loves tyrants. It’s not to Putin, it’s not to Kim Jong-un, not to the Saudis. Is it to our friends, to western democracies who he doesn’t particularly like, or is it to us? Is it to the resistance in this country? ‘I’ve got tanks. I have this military armada.’ The message is a threat. But it’s always a threat when you roll out your military. But it’s, to whom is the threat? And I suspect that the threat is to his fellow Americans. And I hate to say that, but I think that Donald Trump styles himself a tyrant, not a defeater of tyrants.”
Mr. Trump had a simpler explanation Wednesday: he wants to entertain Americans.
Indeed, here's what the president himself had to say about the huge Independence Day event:
