MSNBC host Joy Reid falsely stated on Thursday that Donald Trump make Republicans “literally accept anything.” This is similar to a statement made earlier this week when Chelsea Handler tweeted out that Trump could murder a baby and Republicans would be okay with it. It’s an ironic statement because she literally supports and funds abortions….which is murdering babies.
Trump could murder a baby and his supporters would argue that the baby’s had it coming.

Reid appeared on “All In With Chris Hayes” and explained her views on the GOP during this interview. She said, “This is a Republican Party that’s been built on resentment and a sense of victimhood, a sense of persecution – almost a persecution complex – for more than 40 years, almost 50 years, going back to the dawn of the Civil Rights movement when they felt persecuted by the world.”
Fox Insider reports:
She said that Trump “gets that” and “gets them,” and that’s why he can make Republicans “literally accept anything.”
“And not only will the voters, so will the elected officials,” Reid continued. “He’s cowed senators, members of Congress. He has cowed the officialdom of the Republican Party. He’s cowed the Speaker of the House.”
She said that’s been made clear by the Republican non-response to reports about Donald Trump Jr.’s meeting with a Russian lawyer.
“They all are now for collusion,” she concluded.
