MSNBC shill Joy Reid claimed that people just aren’t smart enough to understand Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s email scandal.
Reid made this incredibly stupid statement on NBC’s “Meet the Press”:
I think the blessing and the curse for Hillary Clinton is that the email story is complicated. The curse for her is that trying to explain it, her answers are so detailed and complicated, that when you explain you’re losing.
Yes, that’s the Clinton curse, giving answers that are just too “detailed and complicated.” Pretty sure there’s another Clinton curse, but it’s not the one she’s talking about…
Reid went on to call voters stupid: “It’s also so complicated [that] when you talk to voters they don’t really get it.”
“What they do understand is that they have Gmail, so it doesn’t sound like something criminal. So when Donald Trump goes over the top and tries to say that it’s something criminal, he kind of loses the audience too. It’s a blessing and a curse.” Reid added.
Yes, because the average Joe using Gmail is the same as the secretary of state using a private server to send and received classified and extremely sensitive data — totally the same thing. Average people are also well aware that what she did is criminal, but that Clinton is — unlike the rest of us — above the law.
Trump is just so over the top when he uses facts and common sense. How dare people buy into his dark and scary agenda of thinking that Clinton should be responsible for her criminal behavior that was reckless and endangered American security!
Facts and common sense are the undoing of the Democrat Party when they know what’s best for people; just ask them!
Hugh Hewitt responded that the people understand just fine and referenced Clinton’s “short circuit” comment: “Short circuit is Portuguese for, ‘I did not tell the truth.’ And they understand short circuited meant, ‘I’m sorry, I did not tell the truth.’ Her problem is trustworthiness.”
In one way, Reid is right — when people have to tell lie after lie to cover up something, things do tend to get complicated. The truth is usually pretty simple.
Although not in the way Reid intended, she is right that some people are too stupid to understand the Clinton email scandal. Anyone who believes Clinton’s lies about her private server and the information therein is pretty stupid.
Anyone who, after hearing FBI Director James Comey’s press conference and subsequent hearing before Congress, would still vote for Clinton is downright stupid — not to mention the myriad other things she still hasn’t been held accountable for, such as the death of four Americans in Benghazi, Libya.
This isn’t the first time Reid has shilled for Clinton. She shouted down a Trump supporter who dared to bring up facts on her show, such as how approximately 33,000 Clinton emails were deleted — to which Reid, in such a professional matter, bellowed: “No, ma’am! No, Ma’am! You cannot invent things. You cannot say things — You’re putting out incredibly inflammatory information.”
Many people understand just fine that Clinton is a dangerous liar who cannot be allowed anywhere near the White House.
The people that don’t get this? Anyone that watches MSNBC, the network where common sense and facts go to die thanks to the shrill, elitist ignorance spewed by hosts like Reid.
