Joy Ann Reid Makes A Brilliant Analogy: Obama Is Beyonce

...and Hillary (bless her heart) is Britney Spears

This is kinda mind-blowing, when you think about it:

Joy Ann Reid took time out of her show this morning to make a remarkable analogy.

...Still days away from the blessed end of this election. Headlines are freaking people out. Warning of an impending Trump-ocolypse. Or a molt. Before we start opining that if Hillary Clinton were to lose which, folks, is not likely -- she'll have black voters to blame. Let's think about this year's MTV music video awards when Britney Spears staged her comeback. It was a well-choreographed performance where Miss Britney delighted fans. It came nowhere close to being the most talked-about performance of the night. She had to follow this. 16-straight minutes of Beyonce's lemonade-flavored performance. Hillary Clinton doesn't fully control her timing on the historical program. The reality is, it should be no surprise that after president Obama got African-American voters into formation with record turn out in 2008 and 2012 as the first black president, Hillary Clinton is more like,
