MSNBC ‘Shocked,’ ‘Embarrassed’ By ‘Reprehensible’ Tim Scott ‘Pablum’

News & Politics

An actual Republican articulated actual Republican beliefs on MSNBC and the liberal cable network’s hosts were typically enraged. Nicolle Wallace and Joy Reid fumed about how they were “embarrassed” by the “reprehensible” Tim Scott’s response to Joe Biden’s speech, deeming it “pablum.” 

The radical Joy Reid let viewers know just how saddened she was by Scott’s insistence that America isn’t racist and that Georgia’s voting law makes sense: “I am shocked and a bit embarrassed for him. This was a lost opportunity. Tim Scott had a opportunity to make his mark on criminal justice reform and this isn’t going to do it.” 

Reid underlined just how disappointed she was with the “Republican pablum.”

I was surprised, to be honest with you. This was standard Republican pablum. This could have been delivered by Tom Cotton or Mike Lee. “America isn’t a racist country. There’s no racism here.” I’m not sure what his purpose was. His audience to me appeared to be conservative white Republicans who are angry over certain things, of cancel culture and the same sort of cultural nods that we hear on Fox News.

If only the Senator had been aiming his “cultural nods” to the Democratic hosts of MSNBC, he could have won over Reid.

Former Republican Nicolle Wallace dismissed Scott as a liar, even going so far as to bizarrely dismiss Operation Warp Speed: 

This is a speech delivered from a planet where facts don’t matter, which is where the current Republican Party resides, so it’s not really his fault. But it is his responsibility to get his facts straight. She said this: That Biden inherited a country that had already rounded the bend. 4,000 a people a day were dying in January, so I don’t know again on what planet we had rounded the bend? And Operation Warp Speed didn’t do anything to get a needle into an arm. So a lot of disinformation. It felt almost scripted by someone close to the president who wanted that revision. 

Operation Warp Speed didn’t put needles in arms? Then how did we get the vaccine?

NICOLLE WALLACE: This is a speech delivered from a planet where facts don’t matter, which is where the current Republican Party resides, so it’s not really his fault. But it is his responsibility to get his facts straight. She said this: That Biden inherited a country that had already rounded the bend. 4,000 a people a day were dying in January, so I don’t know again on what planet we had rounded the bend? And Operation Warp Speed didn’t do anything to get a needle into an arm. So a lot of disinformation. It felt almost scripted by someone close to the president who wanted that revision. 

JOY REID: President Trump. 

WALLACE: I think the most reprehensible thing in the eyes of clear-eyed people of any party about the Georgia law. The reason Major League Baseball left isn’t because it makes it easier to vote in Georgia than in Democrat run New York. Again, if your so proud of a lie tell the truth about it. The lie would have removed Republican Brad Raffensperger from a decision making place. So it’s just disingenuous to say the law is so good, we’re so proud of it. If it’s that good major league baseball wouldn’t have moved their game. So it wasn’t true in my view was the biggest flaw.

JOY REID: I was surprised, to be honest with you. This was standard Republican pablum. This could have been delivered by Tom Cotton or Mike Lee. “America isn’t a racist country. There’s no racism here.” I’m not sure what his purpose was. His audience to me appeared to be conservative white Republicans who are angry over certain things, of cancel culture and the same sort of cultural nods that we hear on Fox News. And he was out here to throw them a lifeline. It was disappointing. 

REID:  People see him as trying to be genuine working on criminal justice reform. And rather than make one single, salutary point, he came out and lied about the Georgia bill saying “It’s easier to vote in Georgia than in New York. I am — I am shocked and a bit embarrassed for him. This was a lost opportunity. Tim Scott had a opportunity to make his mark on criminal justice reform and this isn’t going to do it. This wasn’t it.
