In addition to being a vile, bigoted garbage person, Joy Reid is also a colossal hypocrite. That’s why she does things like rail against unvaccinated people — white Republicans/conservatives, specifically, so she can blame them for minorities getting COVID19 — when she herself was stirring up anti-vaccine sentiment while Donald Trump was still in office.
For what it’s worth, though, Joy doesn’t see that as hypocritical at all. She stands by her politically motivated about-face, 100%:
Joy Reid again defends her belief that it was NECESSARY to be anti-vaxxer when Trump was in office: "I was hesitant. When Donald Trump was out there controlling the CDC & controlling the FDA & manipulating them & making them put out falsehoods, anybody rational was hesitant." pic.twitter.com/dBFT8lTvWw

But it's okay when they're manipulating and controlling the CDC and FDA?

"it's rational to reject the vaccine when the government is controlled by people you disagree with" is a bad message https://t.co/X9rAGGIRhF

She literally had no reason to oppose the vaccine other than the fact that Donald Trump was in the White House when it was developed. Her admission is simultaneously stunning and completely expected.
All this person seems to do is say the quiet part loud. https://t.co/PTo70W8aWc

She can’t help herself.
Biden literally announced a date he wanted to start boosters while FDA said they weren't justified. https://t.co/KKIRIU5N0U

But Donald Trump was the threat to science.

I am mystified that people actually listen to this person

No one can ever say Joy Reid is untalented

“Anybody rational” is not watching the lobotomized parade of morons and hacks on MSNBC. https://t.co/vD4IZsHOXA

That’s very true.

So Joy Reid’s got that going for her, at least.
Don't tell me the Left is scientific. https://t.co/7O0HdWrDpx

Lol it’s not about science is it

Narrator: It was never about science.
