Joy Reid Shuts Down Former GOP Rep After “If Comedian Called Obama a Ni**er” Post

MSNBC anchor Joy Reid can hold her own in a scrap.  Now, former GOP Representative Joe Walsh knows that first hand after getting pimp slapped on twitter.

Walsh apparently didn’t like SNL’s news bit this weekend when comedian Michael Che went all in on Donald Trump calling him a “b**ch” and a “cheap cracker”.  Here’s the clip.

Walsh later tweeted

Wow, he actually used the “N-Word” which is where Joy Reid comes in on the war of words…


Have to agree with Reid, this Walsh guy probably was waiting for the right scenario to use that word.   Mr. Walsh, just so you’ll know in the future, there is no perfect scenario or acceptable scenario in which that word should be used…especially by a White person in reference to a Black person.  Seems like Walsh would have or should have been more offended by Che referring to Trump as a “b*tch”. No, Walsh was more offended about the word “cracker” and to prove his point, he decided to use an offensive term about former President Obama. After eight years that Obama was in office, Walsh and others may have been itching to use that word.   People, Obama has moved on–why can’t you do the same?  Secondly, the “N-Word” doesn’t translate as an exclusive term meant only for Obama.

But TRN will stay out of this word war, since Reid was more than qualified and up to the task of handling it. And she completely shut Walsh down with her next couple of tweets…

Walsh hasn’t been heard from since.

  1. “If an employee disrespects you, then stop spending your money there.”

    The NFL, Disney/ESPN, NBA, Major League Baseball, NHL, Fox/NewsCorp, all of hollywood, Tommy Hilfiger, Trump Hotels, NCAA, and Barneys, have disrespected us! How many black men and women have the strength not to spend their money on the businesses I just mentioned.

  2. Black folks need to make up their mind regarding freedom of speech. If you want to be free to speak your mind, then you have to allow others to do the same. If you wanna call white folks crackers then you gotta let them call you niggas.

    Walsh’s comments are based on black people’s demanding that white people get fired everytime they say something offensive. Thus, he’s just demanding equal rights. However, if we ALL desire freedom of speech, no one should have the right to demand that someone get fired. Suggest, perhaps, but not demand. Demand is done economically.

    A brief lesson in economics:
    The reason people get fired is because they negatively affect sales. Thus, if an employee offends a customer base and they stop patronising the business, then the employer will fire them in order to retain their customers. If an employee disrespects you, then stop spending your money there. Flexing economic power takes discipline. You can’t just make demands of a business and still spend your money with them.

    Walsh can stop watching SNL all he wants and the ratings won’t change. Stiff necked Trump supporters already don’t watch SNL so they have no economic impact either. They can stop patronising the shows sponsors, but I doubt they feel strongly enough to make the sacrifice.

    My opinion about the use of offensive words is: who da cap fit, let dem wear it. Niggers and Crackers alike.
