During Sunday’s AM Joy, host Joy Reid and her panel took shots at White House adviser Stephen Miller, President Trump and the Trump base for their “radical” views on immigration. The panel ultimately concluded that “Trump and his base are in a closed universe” and that “his base is scared of anyone who is not visibly white.”
The segment began with host Joy Reid playing a clip of Miller promising to “do whatever is necessary to build the border wall to stop this ongoing crisis of illegal immigration,” including shutting down the government.
Guest Michelle Bernard then unloaded about the administration’s response to the death of a seven-year-old girl in border patrol custody: “They sanctioned cruelty and they have absolutely no empathy for…people who are going to leave their countries…because they are trying to get away from the most horrible situations anyone could ever imagine.” Bernard argued that “there is a continual decision to try to do things to…basically tear apart our democracy.”
According to faux conservative Washington Post blogger Jennifer Rubin, “these people are in the business of cruelty.” She also argued that it “did result in a tragic death of the girl.” Rubin added: The big takeaway from this year is that Trump and his base are in a closed universe. They are a significant segment, unfortunately, of the country.”
