MSNBC’s Joy Reid couldn’t help but weigh in on Senator Elizabeth Warren picking an online fight she couldn’t win with billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk.

And, as expected, the dumbest woman hosting a cable news show — and that’s with some stiff competition over at CNN as well as on Reid’s home network — MSNBC’s “Race Lady” of course found a way to insinuate that Musk was being racist and misogynistic.

But let’s back up a bit… Reid was responding to a Twitter spat that was sparked by Senator Pocahontas on Tuesday.

Warren’s official Senate account wrote, “Let’s change the rigged tax code so The Person of the Year will actually pay taxes and stop freeloading off everyone else,” while linking to an article from the Boston Globe that the entrepreneur responsible for Tesla and SpaceX was named Time Magazine’s “Person of the Year.”

To which Musk replied, “Stop projecting!” with a link to an article about how Warren lied for decades about having Native American ancestry. Musk wrote in a follow-up tweet, “You remind me of when I was a kid and my friend’s angry Mom would just randomly yell at everyone for no reason.”

He kept going, however. He then called her “Senator Karen” and asked her not to call the manager on him.

It was all pretty hilarious.

Democrats — with Warren leading the charge — have made a push for a wealth tax of “unrealized gains” on assets. This is a disastrous idea that would hurt everyone, but it would hurt those with more value in their assets and force them to “pay their fair share” in taxes. Of course, this would naturally mean selling off some of the assets in order to pay the taxes because despite what Liz Warren, Bernie Sanders, AOC, and other Democrats believe, billionaires don’t have a great, big vault of money that they go swimming in like Disney’s Scrooge McDuck.

In November, Musk made this point by selling off some of his Tesla stock after the results of a Twitter poll.

Musk is poised to pay an unfathomable $12 billion in taxes for 2021 which would be a record-breaking tax bill.

But Musk wasn’t finished dragging Liz Warren for wanting to tax “unrealized gains” — he tweeted again, “And if you opened your eyes for 2 seconds, you would realize I will pay more taxes than any American in history this year.” Then he followed up with, “Don’t spend it all at once… oh wait you did already” in reference to the massive spending under the Biden-Harris administration.

Enter Joy Reid mocking Elon Musk for “stomping his little feet” and calling him the “Absolute Worst” and the “Junior Birdman”.

Reid tried to paint Musk’s opposition to the massive government spending on Biden’s “Build Back Better” agenda as cruel and heartless while lauding Warren for wanting to pack the Supreme Court with at least four more justices — which, if a GOP Senator had proposed the same solution in 2017, she would have called an “assault on democracy” and probably condemned as racist.

While saying that Senator Pocahontas of the High Cheekbones tribe had “better things to do” than engage in a Twitter war with Elon Musk, she then showed that she actually did not by bringing her on the show.

In her opening monologue, Reid bizarrely claimed that the term “Karen” that is used in common vernacular everywhere to refer to an entitled (often white) woman who complains and makes a big deal about non-issues has been taken from “black vernacular.” That’s interesting. Some people consider calling someone a “Karen” a racial slur.

And FYI, Reid suggested using the name “Tucker” for a “male Karen” in honor of Tucker Carlson, of course.

Does that mean she’s advocating for the use of an anti-white racial slur? It certainly looks that way.

But Reid adds to the whole accusation that the South African-born Musk was using “black language” by saying that he appropriated the term “Karen” in order to be misogynistic.

She then mocked him as having thin skin and she and Warren have a laugh at his expense calling him a “freeloader.” After that, they just start bitching about Republicans wanting to end the barbaric and horrific practice of murdering babies in the womb under the guise of “women’s rights.”

It’s expected that someone whose more than $150 billion net worth surpasses the annual GDP of a number of countries would have a target on his back, but this was very strange.

Here are a couple of questions for Joy Reid and Senator Warren:

  1. How many jobs have you created and how many has Elon Musk created?
  2. What innovations do either of you have that can compete with rebooting the dying space program or making electric cars that are actually functional and something you won’t be embarrassed to drive?

This one is specifically for Joy-Ann Reid…

Did the FBI ever figure out who hacked your old blog with the homophobic posts?

Maybe people who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones.
