MSNBC host criticizes Scalise after shooting, calls him ‘ignorant’


Host Joy Anne Reid of MSNBC couldn’t help but criticize Rep. Scalise for his conservative views just days after he was shot at a congressional baseball practice.

“And a lot of people at least in my Twitter timeline — and it’s a delicate thing, because obviously everybody is wishing the congressman well and hoping he recovers — but Steve Scalise has a history that we’ve all been forced to sort of ignore on race,” Ms. Reid said Saturday on “AM Joy.”

Rep. Scalise’s condition was upgraded from “critical” to “serious” Sunday, but more procedures are pending.

Ms. Reid’s guest, NAACP board member the Rev. William J. Barber II, answered that “we hope he recovers, and then when he recovers there’s a new mindset.”
