MSNBC host Joy Ann Reid and guest Michael Eric Dyson are now under fire after the two had a meltdown over Republican Virginia Lieutenant Governor-elect Winsome Sears.
As The Daily Wire reports:
MSNBC host Joy Reid and frequent guest Michael Eric Dyson faced backlash online late on Thursday evening after a video clip went viral from Reid’s show that was widely panned as blatantly racist.
