Joy Reid Does It Again! 'That Smear On Planned Parenthood Cannot Go Forward'

Joy Reid shut down a Trump apologist running off his mouth about Margaret Sanger in true right-wing fashion.

Joy Ann-Reid is my hero of the week -- again. This time, she shut down right-wing Trump apologist Alfonso Aguilar, who spent the entire 7-minute segment pretending that Donald Trump doesn't mean to be racist; it just comes out that way.

And then Aguilar showed his own true colors, when he barked about Margaret Sanger at the end as he was backed into a corner.

Raw Story:

“Margaret Sanger, let’s talk about Planned Parenthood” Aguilar blurted, with Reid reminding him,”You’re mentioning a dead person, gone for many decades.”

Holding up her finger, Reid told her guest, “Planned Parenthood is not a eugenicist organization. And I think that is incredibly offensive. Planned Parenthood is a health organization. Good gracious.”

Aguilar was not deterred, saying, “52 percent of all abortions are performed on Latino and African-Americans–” as Reid shut him down for the last time.

“Okay, I think that smear on Planned Parenthood cannot go forward and we are not going to continue with that line of questioning, ” she said as she pulled the plug on the interview.

It was a moment, once again. And that happened after his lies and equivocations had been exposed by Joy and her panel.
