MSNBC’s “AM Joy” host Joy Reid is receiving criticism for attacking the politics of House majority whip Steve Scalise, who is still in the hospital after a gunman opened fired last week on the GOP Congressional baseball team. “It’s a delicate thing because, obviously everybody is wishing the congressman well and hoping that he recovers. But Steve Scalise has a history that we’ve all been forced to sort of ignore on race,” Reid said over the weekend. While Reid was making these comments, an on-screen graphic showed Scalise’s record highlighting his more polarizing decisions, such as sponsoring a bill to define marriage as between a man and a women.The MSNBC host followed up with a tweet that said, “Scalise was shot by a white man with a violent background, and saved by a black lesbian police officer, and yet …” On Monday, Fox News media guru Howie Kurtz was still upset about Reid’s comments, calling her “appalling.”
