President Donald Trump has a history of attacking women of color who challenge him, and he does so in the most infantile and asinine ways. Saturday morning was no different when he turned his eyes on MSNBC host Joy Reid.

In usual Trump fashion, he started by declaring that he doesn’t know who the well-known correspondent is, before insisting that this person that he has never met has “NO talent, and truly doesn’t have the ‘it’ factor needed for success in showbiz.”

“Had a bad reputation, and now works for the Comcast/NBC losers making up phony stories about me. Low Ratings. Fake News!” the president added.

So, what caused The Don to gnash his veneers this time? According to Mediaite it might be the fact that Reid dragged Trump through the gutter on air while guest hosting Friday night’s All in with Chris Hayes.

At one point, Reid said that Trump sounded like a “desperate man” while making comments at the House Republican Retreat in Baltimore.

Reid also mocked the President for his “Mike Pounce” gaffe. She also quipped Trump “went on to treat the gathered Republicans to some smoking hot beauty tips,” taking a swipe at the president for lamenting that energy-efficient light bulbs made him look orange.

Anyway, despite Trump’s mini tantrum, Reid remains booked, busy and unbothered.

Though she didn’t respond to the President’s tweet directly, the show’s Twitter account celebrated the hashtag #AMJoy trending in the United States. So much for not being known.
