MSNBC’s Joy Reid may be a flaming progressive who says outrageous things on a nightly basis, but she is also simply not that smart. On Tuesday’s edition of The ReidOut, she attacked the New York Times for demanding that Democrats urge President Joe Biden to step aside because the Times never called on former President Donald Trump to resign. The problem for Reid: The Times wants Biden to go because it believes Biden staying in the race makes beating Trump more difficult.

Reid reported, “In the meantime, the president is trying to turn the page, telling donors, quote ‘We’re done talking about the debate, it’s time to put Trump in the bullseye’ unquote. Which is easier said than done, when stories about Biden’s age and calls for him to step down are all over the news, especially in the New York Times, whose editorial board today, again, called on Biden to step aside and urged the Democratic leadership to publicly demand that he leave the race.”

A not very joyful Reid continued, “Important to note here, that the New York Times, has never called on Trump to step aside or for his resignation, not when his administration was tearing migrant babies from their mothers’ arms, or when he suggested people inject bleach into their bodies to combat a raging pandemic, or when he incited a violent insurrection at the nation’s capital with the goal of overturning an election, so he could just stay in office forever.”
