Reacting to the many African-American speakers at the event, an MSNBC host smeared the Republican National Convention as a “modern-day minstrel show.”

Acknowledging that there were at least a dozen persons of color who delivered speeches in support of President Donald Trump and his agenda, Tiffany D. Cross teed up a liberal echo-chamber panel with the comment that “I watched the Republican convention, and seeing the slew of black speakers that they had, it really did look like a modern-day minstrel show to me.”

Cross, who was sitting in for far-left conspiracy theorist Joy Reid on AM Joy, also dismissively alerted her viewers that the RNC was “not a Saturday Night Live sketch.”

The very successful and diverse convention, which in part is apparently helping Trump surge in the polls, featured many inspiring luminaries.

The roster included U.S. Sen. Tim Scott, HUD Secretary Ben Carson, Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron, congressional candidates Kim Klacik and Burgess Owens, criminal justice reform advocate Alice Johnson, Georgia state Rep. Vernon Jones, and ex-athletes Herschel Walker and Jack Brewer, among others.

Twitter users who lean toward Trump called out Cross for attempting to vilify the GOP’s legitimate efforts at inclusion, including political activist Rob Smith and others.

Here is a just a sample.
