Watch: Joy Reid Loses Her Tiny Mind Over Looming Recall, Makes Outrageous Claims
The liberal news media have been losing their minds over the potential recall of California Governor Gavin Newsom. In large [art because the person who stands to replace the failed governor is Republican Larry Elder. Over the last couple of weeks, the lamestream media has tried their damnedest to pain Elder as the next Trump to scare liberals but MSNBC's Joy Reid took it a step farther Monday, claiming Elder is going to kill people using Covid.
Reid began by claiming Newsom could easily beat Elder in the ultra-progressive state. However, she quickly went on to demonize the Republican so clearly he poses a very real threat to Democrats:
" Elder opposes vaccine and mask requirements. He thinks the minimum wage should be zero. He said it’s smart for women to tolerate crude behavior in the workplace. And he’s argued that the descendants of slaveholders, well, they’re the ones who deserve reparations. No joke. Those are the stakes on Tuesday. Now, that’s not to mention that Elder has also embraced the Big Lie and is already questioning the legitimacy of the vote next Tuesday, claiming it’s all rigged. And he’s actually said that Stephen Miller, the anti-immigrant former Trump adviser, should be president of the United States."
Reid went on to demand it become harder to recall a politician in California, claiming that it's currently 'too easy'. She went back and forth with California's former gov Jerry Brown before dropping this claim:
FORMER GOVERNOR JERRY BROWN (D-CA): Yeah, it is — it is worrisome and I think we’re seeing more recalls because we’ve seen more money and over the last few decades, and, increasingly, over time, more and more money is available, particularly on the right. It’s available from many corners. So, it would be inconceivable 30 or 40 years ago to think of a successful recall. So, it’s all about money and maybe there’s some way that the requirements can be increased, so we don’t have to go through this nonsense, because there’s an election in another year, where all these same issues will be relitigated. So, it’s just there’s a lot of discontent in politics, very big polarization. So, it isn’t too hard to get 12 percent of the people to sign a recall for almost anything. And that’s really the dilemma here, that the polarization, the antipathy toward anything on the part of somebody can translate into this crazy recall, but I think, as more information came out, it’s very obvious the recall is going down.
"I doubt that very many Californians want to be Texas or Florida, and have their numbers. We pulled — our wonderful producer here pulled the numbers here. The national average for COVID deaths per 100,000 people is 202. California is below that average because of, you know, smart policies to try to stop COVID. Texas and Florida are both well over the average. Look at Florida peeking out there at 225 per 100,000. I mean, the idea that somebody like Larry Elder could come in and basically force California to get more COVID and more COVID deaths, what do you do — do you think that that message has gotten through?," she asked brown.
Later in the interview, Reid gushed over Newson questioning why Republicans would go after him. Claiming it's because 'he's handsome'. Really? How is his appearance remotely relevant? Newsom is up for recall because he has failed California repeatedly. He has somehow managed to do a worse job than Brown and Californians are angry.
