Reid was never concerned about truth or facts.
Via Free Beacon:
MSNBC host Joy Reid on Wednesday accused National Review‘s David French of being reckless on the matter of nuclear war because only “Democrats and minorities” would die if the United States were attacked.
Reid’s argument stems from an article in Newsweek arguing that French, an Army veteran who served in Iraq, wrote an article telling readers “not to worry about a potential nuclear strike because they live in America’s suburbs and countryside.”
French did not, in fact, say anyone should “not worry” about a nuclear attack, but rather gave practical advice on surviving a strike by North Korea. Reid nevertheless took Newsweek‘s piece at face value and tweeted it out, accusing National Review of being comfortable with Democrats and minorities being killed.
“The magazine in question is the once-august National Review,” she tweeted. “We have truly entered the age of insanity when the conservative argument in favor of risking nuclear war is, ‘don’t worry, it will only kill Democrats and minorities.’ Shame on you, @DavidAFrench.”
