MSNBC host Joy Reid deflected allegations Monday that she published homophobic slurs on her now-defunct blog, bizarrely claiming that an “external party” had gained excess to the site and attempted to “taint” her character.
“In December I learned that an unknown, external party accessed and manipulated material from my now-defunct blog, The Reid Report, to include offensive and hateful references that are fabricated and run counter to my personal beliefs and ideology,” Reid told Mediaite. “The manipulated material seems to be part of an effort to taint my character with false information by distorting a blog that ended a decade ago.”
The liberal host also confirmed that she had contacted members of law enforcement, cybersecurity experts, and the LGBT community to help determine who had “corrupted the site.”
“It’s unclear when the nefarious hackers would have hacked her site and added the controversial content, since it has been defunct for years and still is. More importantly, NBC could or would not specify exactly which posts Reid is claiming were doctored,” Mediaite’s Caleb Ecarma adds.

REID RAGE: MSNBC’s Joy Reid FLIPS OUT after Trump Invokes ‘CHURCH and ‘FAMILY During Speech
MSNBC’s Joy Reid wasn’t too pleased with President Trump’s State of the Union address Tuesday evening, slamming the Commander-in-Chief’s repeated use of the words “family” and “police,” and viciously claiming Trump was using “1950’s-era nationalism” to return the United States to a “bygone era.”
The left-wing host vented her frustration on social media during the President’s primetime speech to the American people, strangely taking offense to the core principles Trump outlined as the backbone of our democracy.
“Church … family … police … military … the national anthem … Trump trying to call on all the tropes of 1950s-era nationalism. The goal of this speech appears to be to force the normalization of Trump on the terms of the bygone era his supporters are nostalgic for,” she tweeted.

It remains unclear what Reid finds particularly foul about the military or the national anthem, other than the fact President Trump is a proud supporter of both American traditions.
MSNBC MELTDOWN: Joy Reid FANTASIZES About Trump Being ARRESTED, JAILED
MSNBC host Joy Reid publicly fantasized about President Trump’s arrest by federal marshals outside the White House Sunday; discussing with her panel what would happen should the Commander-in-Chief refuse to testify in front of Robert Mueller’s Russia probe.
Reid was speaking with a former federal prosecutor when she launched into her liberal fantasy; asking whether Trump could be dragged from the Oval Office and placed before a judge should he refuse to speak with the special counsel’s office.

“Normally, a person who refuses to testify before a grand jury winds up being incarcerated for the time period of the grand jury, which can be up to 18 months,” said the prosecutor. “So, one way to enforce it is to have Donald Trump taken by the federal marshals and put in federal prison until he testifies.”
“What if he refuses to open the White House door?” asked Reid.
“At some point, he has to come out of the White House,” said the former prosecutor.
