MSNBC’s Joy Reid was recently described by former colleagues as an “evil woman” who created a “toxic” work environment so the latest gaffe couldn’t have happened to a more deserving person.
Reid is known for her powwows with “Auntie Maxine” Waters on her show ‘AM Joy.’ She makes no secret of her disdain for President Trump and anyone close to him.
One of the things readers might remember about Reid is her refusal to fess up to lying about her past vulgar tweets and blog posts. Nope, there was no confession from Joy Reid even though it was very clear that she tweeted out some hate-filled tweets. She even said she was hacked when it was obvious she hadn’t been hacked.
Just one of her nasty tweets suggested Rush Limbaugh is gay and fat-shamed him. She also published tweets calling Ann Coulter a “drag queen” and made a vile sexual comment about Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas’ wife.
The only reason she apologized about her latest gaffe is that the former Secretary of the Navy is bashing President Trump right now. Joy is all for that!
MSNBC’s Joy Reid was forced to apologize after showing a photo of white supremacist Richard Spencer who happens to have the same name as the fired Navy Secretary Richard Spencer.
Former Navy Secretary Spencer was fired last weekend by Defense Secretary Mark Esper.
Daily Mail reports that the gaffe happened during the ‘AM Joy’ segment on MSNBC when the network showed a photo of former Navy Secretary Spencer’s op-ed that was published right after he was fired by the Secretary of Defense Mike Esper.
The photo included a portion of the article beside the image of white supremacist Richard Spencer instead of the former Secretary of the Navy.

CORRECTION: Earlier on #AMJoy as we were talking about former Navy secretary Richard Spencer we mistakenly showed the wrong image of white supremacist Richard Spencer. We are very, deeply sorry for that mistake. pic.twitter.com/l3QW2lNP0b
