MSNBC’s Joy Reid thinks she has President Donald Trump all figured out.
Reid made the ridiculous claim that the president of the United States “aspires to be” North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un or Russian President Vladimir Putin and that his plan to celebrate America’s birthday is literally a “threat” to the nation.
“You mentioned France and Kim Jong-Un, who Donald Trump greatly admires Kim Jong-Un. He sort of aspires to be sort of a mini-Putin or Kim Jong-Un,” Reid said on MSNBC’s “Deadline: White House” on Tuesday.
“He wants to have that kind of absolute power. He claims Kim Jong-Un’s people just adore him. They have no choice because he would throw them in a gulag and probably kill them,” she added.
While MSNBC viewers are treated daily to a litany of anti-Trump rhetoric, Reid sounded the alarm on the president’s planned Fourth of July celebration, making baseless claims that she posited as fact.
“What Bastille Day represents is the victory over tyrannical rule, over the king, and over the attempt for the king to return,” the “AM Joy” host said, referring to France’s Bastille Day celebration, which Trump has previously praised. “What is the message when Kim Jong Un rolls tanks down the streets of his capital? The message is to democracies. It’s the message to people like us, to Western democracies, ‘you better be careful because we, the united North Korean people, will defeat you. We have nukes. Be afraid of us.'”
Liberals have been triggered by the tanks and other military equipment arriving in Washington D.C. in preparation for Thursday’s parade and celebration, and Reid unveiled the motive behind Trump’s plan to put America’s military on display – and it had nothing to do with national pride or patriotism in her view.
“What is the message Donald Trump is trying to send by rolling tanks down Constitution Avenue? Who is that message to?” she asked.
“It’s certainly not to tyrants because he likes tyrants, he loves tyrants,” she said, again pushing her own theories and views. “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 got tanks. I have this military armada.'”
Reid capped off her rant with a final assessment.
“The message is a threat, but it’s always a threat when you roll out your military,” she said. “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.”
The Fourth of July celebration in the nation’s capitol will include a proud display of America’s military with flyovers from military jets, military vehicles on the National Mall as well as a speech from Trump and a traditional, spectacular fireworks display. The president tweeted about the “Salute to America” on Tuesday.
Big 4th of July in D.C. “Salute to America.” The Pentagon & our great Military Leaders are thrilled to be doing this & showing to the American people, among other things, the strongest and most advanced Military anywhere in the World. Incredible Flyovers & biggest ever Fireworks!

Reid further insulted Americans who take pride in the USA and look forward to the celebration by tweeting that the president’s plans for Thursday amount to just one “big, taxpayer-funded, North Korea-style Trump rally.” She also added a dig at Fox News with a shot at the network’s viewers, saying “only Fox ‘News’ State TV will obsequiously cover it.”
Donald Trump’s ‘Salute To America’ thing is a big, taxpayer-funded, North Korea-style Trump rally. So it makes sense that only Fox “News” State TV will obsequiously cover it. Enjoy whatever you watch tomorrow! ?? https://t.co/Xf92dmOgFa

This is America. On July 4 we celebrate our freedom, our history (which includes winning a war in which, yes, people died) and our values. If you don’t like it, @JoyAnnReid , I understand Venezuela would love to have you.
