Liberal MSNBC host Joy Ann Reid – who attacked Republican Steve Scalise as he nearly died after being shot by a Democrat – was back to her normal self recently when she decided to spread a blatantly false claim about the special election in Georgia.
The Daily Caller reported:
MSNBC host Joy Ann Reid falsely claimed Tuesday night that Donald Trump won the sixth district in Georgia by 20 points — he only won by one.
Reid, who hosts the MSNBC show “AM Joy,” responded to Democrat Jon Ossoff’s loss in the Georgia special election Tuesday by adding some “perspective.”
She implied that it wasn’t that big of a deal for Ossoff to lose because “It’s GEORGIA. A Republican district in Georgia that Trump won by 20+ points.”
However, the tweet, which had thousands of retweets and likes before she deleted it Wednesday morning, was blatantly false.
Donald Trump actually only carried GA-06 by one point.
It took Reid almost a full 12 hours to delete the tweet, even as people informed her of mistake.
Aside from being a hateful person, it’s scary to see that Reid is so willing to spread lies!
What a pathetic excuse for a human being. She is one low pathetic cretin!

In addition to being wrong, sounds like she’s really putting Georgia down. Hmmm, if I was a Georgian don’t believe I’d watch MSNBC.

She’s programed to spew out the Liberal lies; what I can’t understand is how someone like this lives with themselves!

Well, @MSNBC is fake news. They make stuff up and report it as the truth. Saves money, suits their narrative.
