It’s not a secret that y’alls’ trifflin’ President loves to attack intelligent, successful and influential Black women on Twitter. Our newest queen caught in his lame crosshairs is Joy-Ann Reid, the host of MSNBC’s popular weekend morning show, AM JOY.
Apparently, after nearly two years of being in office and her dragging him on her highly-rated show, Trump must have JUST found out who the award-winning journalist was, because on Saturday, after referring to himself as a “stable genius,” he lashed out on her.
“Who the hell is Joy-Ann Reid? Never met her, she knows ZERO about me, has NO talent, and truly doesn’t have the ‘it’ factor needed for success in showbiz,” the leader of the Free World tweeted.
Adding, “Had a bad reputation, and now works for the Comcast/NBC losers making up phony stories about me. Low Ratings. Fake News!”
Low ratings? No talent? NO IT FACTOR???
So what got Trump to act like someone stole his big wheel so early this morning?
Apparently, as she guest-hosted on the Friday night edition of All in With Chris Hayes, she mocked him misspelling his own VP’s name wrong (“Mike Pounce”) said he “went on to treat the gathered Republicans to some smoking hot beauty tips” which included how to make the lightbulbs make him look less orange, The Hill reported.
She also said that he sounded “like a desperate man” when he said “whether you like me or not it makes no difference because our country will go to Hell if any of these people get in.”
Take a look:
Well, when Black Twitter saw the President’s rant, their response was clear:
They dragged #45 by his toupee all morning. Here’s what some of them said:

My mom's reaction to Trump's attack on Joy Reid: "Now, he just did it! Time to take earrings off and get busy......" pic.twitter.com/FsGycStluY— Jonathan Capehart (@CapehartJ) September 14, 2019
Take it as a badge of honor @JoyAnnReid.— Rashida Tlaib (@RashidaTlaib) September 14, 2019
This incompetent President has failed this country & he doesn't like it when journalist like you show up with facts to back it. The media *can be* fundamental in protecting our democracy, but it has to be reporting truth, not opinions. https://t.co/EZIXYGpjYA
Well it seems @JoyAnnReid has the President flustered this morning. Keep doing what you do Joy - truth, journalistic rigor, spot-on analysis, professionalism. But I wonder what is the “it factor” this President thinks one needs for success in “showbiz”? Let me think... pic.twitter.com/qUYOiTElqN— Sherrilyn Ifill (@Sifill_LDF) September 14, 2019
I promise you, that orange fecal smear wants NONE of what @JoyAnnReid can do to his fragile self esteem with a mere sentence.— yvette nicole brown (@YNB) September 14, 2019
He better PRAY she doesn’t have time today.
Like FERVENT prayer. https://t.co/nhXjECwjyu
This may shock you but Trump attacked another woman of color today.— Steve Marmel (@Marmel) September 14, 2019
Also shocking: He woke up and had three Big Macs.
Just another Saturday.
Who the bleep is Jo-Ann Reid? What a great question Mr. President. I just looked her up and found out she has her own TV show which I'm watching now, #AMJOY. Joy Reid also has a book out about you that I just purchased. She's brilliant, Thanks for the tip! #SaturdayMorning @amjoy pic.twitter.com/4s49ccdKxB— dogonvillage (@dogonvillage) September 14, 2019
My favorite thing about Trump tweeting about @JoyAnnReid is that he got her name exactly right, the hyphen and everything, while calling his VP #MikePounce and his wife Melanie #AMJoy pic.twitter.com/LKfBQ5kb4f— Tara Dowdell (@MsTaraDowdell) September 14, 2019
Unlike you, Joy Reid still has a TV show.— The Hoarse Whisperer (@TheRealHoarse) September 14, 2019
Remember when you lost the Emmy to some random season of Amazing Race?
I love that story.
Trump could tell you the name of Joy Reid’s book but I guaranteed you he couldn’t tell you the names of any of Barrons teachers... #AMJoy— Cyrus McQueen (@CyrusMMcQueen) September 14, 2019
Just the fact that you’re specifically attacking Joy Reid is enough proof that she’s doing it right. She’s just another black woman who scares you shitless. 😂🤣 https://t.co/Am3Y4bmnIF— Ricky Davila (@TheRickyDavila) September 14, 2019
