MSNBC anchor Pleasure Reid delivered a damning overview of the protection of Donald Trump offered by the ex-president’s attorneys in his Senate impeachment trial for inciting the U.S. Capitol riot.
“Suppose Fox Information prime time chilly open or OAN or Newsmax,” the “ReidOut” host stated of the stream of lies and skewered arguments put ahead by Trump’s attorneys on Friday.
It was “the type of right-wing TV present that the Republican senators in all probability have on of their places of work proper now and at residence and that Republican base voters mainline day and night time,” Reid added.
“This was not a protection. It was principally a four-hour tradition struggle rant,” she concluded. “It was actually only a blizzard of lies, conspiracy theories, whataboutism and albeit, BS. It was a stand-in for a Trump tweetstorm, which in fact, he can now not do as a result of Twitter banned him.”
