MSNBC’s latest primetime star Joy Reid reacted to the alarming news that President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump tested positive for COVID-19 by lending credence to claims that the president is lying for political purposes.
That being one a several responses seen online from Reid, none of which conveyed any sense of regret or sympathy, or offers of condolence.
Instead, the MSNBC host attacked Trump’s credibility and highlighted some of her “friends” who expressed their disbelief.
“Here’s how wrecked Trump’s credibility is at this point: I’ve got a cellphone full of texts from people who aren’t sure whether to believe Trump actually has covid. ‘He lies so much,’ one friend just texted. ‘Is he just doing this to get out of the debates?’ others are texting,” Reid tweeted.

Though, Reid did express concern — for Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden.
She tweeted, “Another important question: did Trump and his party expose Joe and Jill Biden to covid at Case Western University on Tuesday?”
Reid wasn’t the only member of the Trump Derangement Syndrome crowd to go down the path of essentially calling the president a liar.
Heisman Trophy winner and former NFL player Reggie Bush questioned the timing of the announcement in a tweet that proved that athletes with a limited grasp on the real world should stick to dribbling… or in his case, running with a ball.
Referring to the president as “Teflon Don,” he too referenced the debate — it’s almost like the left watched a different debate to think Trump would not want another crack at Joe Biden.
Teflon Don just wants the attention on him. Now the entire world will be on Trump watch. Now you test positive? 🤔 After all the rallies with no masks you held, now you conveniently catch COVID after that disastrous debate? https://t.co/AGVJYnWLDm

Not surprisingly, Reid’s followers were easily swayed to think the same way.
I don’t believe tRump or Melania have COVID either. I think they are avoiding the debates, COVID, taxes, and Melania’s scandals about child separations and Christmas. And they know all the other damage that is coming this month. Bring it on and media needs to focus in on it. pic.twitter.com/1PFUOpIjp8

Not just his but most of the White House as well. You can count me among the suspicious. We’ll see if he miraculously recovers too late to debate but in time for Election Day. And let’s face it, if anyone knows how to fake it, it’s Melania. 😉

I believe this one. He would never agree to something that makes him look sick or weak.

Others have been asking whether it’s a distraction from the Melania recordings disrespecting kids at the border & Christmas as well as the heat @realDonaldTrump has been getting in his endorsing of white supremacy. It’s a real question of how people see his character. #COVID19

Until Dr Fauci tests Trump live on television I can’t believe anything out of the White House

On the other hand, a common theme among more rational folks was to question Reid’s state of mind.
Here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter:
Dear Crazy Person,
This says everything about the nutjobs you hang out with than it does about the President's credibility.
Good talk. https://t.co/nO60eKThCt

This is called conspiracy theory. I expect Twitter to suspend this account immediately for spreading false information. https://t.co/I7FPYvmRV7

I think what you're seeing is the mental derangement of Trump Derangerment Syndrome victims. https://t.co/nbDooRMKLX
