Joy-ann Reid breaks dowthe video clip and the full transcript of her message here.
Reid started her rant as follows.
To the sixty million two hundred and sixty-five thousand eight hundred and fifty-eight people who voted for Donald Trump and the nearly one hundred million who didn't bother to vote at all, even though you were eligible, we here at AM Joy are going to tell you what you have won.- Advertisement -
Donald Trump now heads the Republican Party which controls all three branches of government. which controls the House, the Senate, and the White House. And the Supreme Court is poised to be filled by the new Republican President.
Now you have given Trump, a man alternately described as vengeful, erratic, narcissistic, and dangerous, and temperamentally unfit to be president -- and that's just what Conservative Republicans said about him. You've given him control of the FBI, the CIA, the NSA, the IRS, -- pretty ironic since he probably hasn't paid taxes in eighteen years -- not to mention drones and nuclear weapons.
Reid continued on how Obamacare, the Supreme Court selection, and other social issues would affect them and us all. She then excoriated their moral hypocrisy.
You have also lost the notion of an exceptional America. Because as it turns out, we are just another Western nation falling to the Ethno-nationalist forces sweeping across Europe, from Brexit in the U.K. to France's Marie Le Pen fueled and egged on by the Russians and feeding on the fear of non-white and non-Christian immigrants. We as it turns out are not that different after all.
You've also lost the right to moralize to Blue America about family values. Now we sincerely hope and pray that your daughters or sisters or your wives and all women and girls are never disrespected, never abused the way the next President of the United States has boasted about disrespecting or even sexually assaulting women including walking in on teenage pageant contestants when they are naked. When your sons and daughters ask you if little girls are as valuable as little boys or if they should emulate the President of the United States, we will leave that to you to explain.
She then had a warning for the media. She said it is imperative that Trump is not normalized and that he is covered rigorously.
