An MSNBC guest unloaded on President Donald Trump and Fox News host Laura Ingraham in an astounding on-air rant, calling them both “white supremacists” while denouncing their supporters.
Tiffany Cross of The Beat D.C. slammed Ingraham’s viewers as “half-wits” during an appearance on MSNBC’s “AM Joy” on Sunday, while also declaring a “national emergency” over Trump’s “ignorant” supporters.
Debating the president’s remarks on how the Texas city of El Paso has seen an overall drop in crime after a border barrier was built, MSNBC host Joy Reid asked Cross how the Fox News Network could “keep up the fiction of violence” in El Paso and other border cities.
Cross unloaded a string of insults as she referred to Trump’s scheduled interview with Ingraham on Monday following his rally in El Paso.
“I’ve been on Fox News before, and the problem is, he’s going on with a half-witted host who has an audience full of half-witted people who have no interest in truth or facts,” Cross blared.
“The real national emergency here, Joy, is a sea full of ignorant, red MAGA hats who have no type of intellectual curiosity about any of these things, and they will take this President’s word even when it’s at their own peril, even when it destroys the country they claim to love so much, even when it devastates children they claim to want to protect, even when it runs contrary to a God they claim to serve,” Cross ranted.
She continued to pillory the president and all of his supporters who are “fact-averse.”
“There is nothing that supports this president’s lies. It’s just a bunch of people that have no interest in truth,” she said. “They are fact-averse. And this is how he’s able to get away with this time and time again.”
Later in the segment, the far-left MSNBC guest attacked the president and the Fox News host as “white supremacists” while host Joy Reid did nothing to call her out, apparently missing the fact that Ingraham is a single mother to three adopted children, two boys from Russia and one girl from Guatemala.
“So, now, tomorrow night, the viewers will see two white supremacists — Laura Ingraham — because let’s remember, her monologue — her one-woman monologue about how awful diversity is for the country — talking to another white supremacist with Donald Trump,” Cross declared.
Conservative radio and Fox News host, Mark Levin suggested Ingraham should sue for defamation and called out the “outrageous bigotry” on display.
Laura should sue Comcast and this disgusting guest for defaming her. Enough with the outrageous bigotry on these leftwing shows. https://t.co/dI28FtYdRU

Many on Twitter agreed, slamming the left’s continuous “Trump-shame” of anyone supporting the president.
When you don’t have facts on your side, resort to name calling. #IstandwithLaura

This is classic “we have no ideas to win on so we will just call everyone racist, homophobic, transphobic, insert name calling and false character assault”. You have to be truly brain dead or mentally ill to vote Democrat these days!

ICYMI-it is obvious that the media plan is to “Trump-shame” any Trump supporter into silence by claiming they are every “phobe” in the book. And yes, inciting violence against them is not off limits.

These Democrat media types aren’t looking to inform they are looking to inflame.

The only way it ends is if people have consequences for their actions. I’m with you, sue her into oblivion!

That is some serious hatred and divisiveness.

So, Laura who adopted Latin American kids from desperate conditions is a white supremist? Please. Go elsewhere with your hateful rhetoric. I am part of Laura’s audience and I am an American of Cuban parents. Proudly believe in MAGA and all that this @POTUS stands for!

MSNBC can call us dim wits all they want. We know there is a crisis at the border and we stand with our president to fix it.
