MSNBC’s Tiffany Cross suggests racism is behind choice of reported new ‘The View’ co-host

Like her fellow MSNBC colleague Joy Reid, Tiffany Cross sees racism in practically everything and this week, her beef is with ABC which has reportedly settled on a permanent replacement for Meghan McCain on “The View.”

While the network and the popular daytime gabfest have yet to make it official, media outlets have reported that the winner to be the next full-time conservative punching bag for the show’s gaggle of vicious, shrill leftists will be Alyssa Farah Griffin, who served as White House Director of Strategic Communications under former President Donald J. Trump.

Cross bemoaned the pick as just one more example of the media trying to appeal to “racist white people” instead of focusing on pandering to “younger, more diverse audiences” during a bitter diatribe on Saturday’s edition of “The Cross Connection,” a show that regularly provides a forum for guests with hostile attitudes toward white people — like bomb-thrower Elie Mystal.

“Now, remember, in 2016, after many, many members of the news media helped usher in this lunatic into the White House, the takeaway for many executives was, guys, we in the news didn’t pay enough attention to racist white people” Cross said. “That’s how we got those ridiculous terms like white economic anxiety and those voters of the heartland segments with a bunch of white Midwesterners and coffee shops that have never seen folks who look like this right here. Then there were all the deep dives in the Trump country and print profiles of Trump supporters.”

“Well, here’s the update, they appear to be doing the same thing again. Variety reported this week that former Trump aide Alyssa Farah Griffin will be the latest to join ABC’s The View,” she complained. “Now, ABC has not made a formal announcement, but let’s please not forget that this tawdry turncoat Trump loyalist quickly morphed into an opportunist after voluntarily taking jobs with the Trump administration, signing on to work for his regime knowing full well what Trump represented. And she rode his wave of open xenophobia and racism all the way to network television.”

“According to Vanity Fair, she admits that she had a few sips of the Trump Kool-Aid every now and then. Sure, Jan, you guzzled down that Kool-Aid like it was the bleach your boss once said cured the rona,” Cross said, repeating the Big Lie that Trump told people to drink bleach, a favorite talking point for Democrats and their operatives.

“Now, let me tell you about this woman. She wrote for a right wing conspiracy website founded by her father,” Cross continued. “She supported efforts of Mark Meadows and Jim Jordan when she worked for them on Capitol Hill. She defended Trump after he asked the Proud Boys militia to stand back and stand by, and she’s an election denier, and yeah, sure, she came out and denounced the attack on the Capitol, but ain’t nobody impressed with that. That was a convenient thing to do.”

The MSNBC host then whined about the media “still trying to normalize” Trump supporters.

“So as we watch these people, who think a feigned apology is accountability, get rewarded with TV deals, book deals and stints with Dancing on the Stars like you see there. It is so clear to us that many in the media are still trying to normalize these folks. And why?” she asked. “Well, they would say, well, we must not forget about viewers in the Midwestern slash flyover states who may feel differently than us.”

“Yeah, I actually agree with that. I’m all for it. Let’s focus on viewers in Cleveland and Chicago and Detroit and St. Louis, because as you see, younger, more diverse audiences have begun to rely on social media for their news and information. And we’ve seen how problematic that can be,” Cross said. “But we also wonder why so many gatekeepers actively ignore a growing influential market, which drives culture and conversation, by catering to this smaller sector of society because they are uncomfortable talking about race. Their feelings seem to always matter more than truth, history and facts.”
