MSNBC host Joy Reid said President Donald Trump was to blame for what she called Nazis “walking around” in America.
‘Rachel Maddow is sort of their psychologist at this point’
On her show “AM Joy,” Reid said Sunday, “What we’re kind of all getting to is Donald Trump — we were talking about this in the hair and makeup room as well — he produces a kind of anxiety in people that is so profound. It’s part of the reason people are obsessively watching this show and Rachel Maddow. It’s like Rachel Maddow is sort of their psychologist at this point.”
So now, with historic gains for working class American Citizens from the Trump economy, all they can do is recycle their old, tired, silly claims that President Trump is a "white nationalist" and "racist."https://t.co/HNlxnDUcuU

‘You have swatting happening and Nazis walking around. It is a scary time’
“People are afraid of not just what he can do but what he’s bringing out in people,” Reid continued. “The kind of people he is surfacing in the United States. You have swatting happening and Nazis walking around. It is a scary time.”
“You look at the polling on what Donald Trump has done, and rather than make people feel more confident, it’s made people more anxious,” Reid went on. “Here is the anxiety level in 2018 versus 2019. People are more anxious. Do people feel safer after the strike on Iran? They feel less safe. Everything he does makes people feel worse. So do you think that redounds in particular to any particular candidate?”
Writer Tony Schwartz said, “Let me start with the notion that energy is contagious. It’s disproportionately contagious when you have more influence. So the elevated nervous system of Trump, the anxiety of Trump gets communicated both to his supporters and to his antagonists.”

Reid is Ridiculous
Reid blaming Trump for “Nazis walking around” is peak Trump Derangement Syndrome.
The current President of the United States is doing everything he can to create a better America and the notion that he is behind or responsible for open racists expressing their hatred is beyond absurd.
That said, this is par for the course for MSNBC and Joy Reid in particular. Fake news continues to find an audience, unfortunately.
