The Five took on MSNBC’s Joy Reid over her recent remarks she made about the Republican Party.
Last night, Reid told her network colleague Chris Hayes that “This is the Republican Party that’s been built on resentment and a sense of victimhood, a sense of persecution… for more than 40 years- almost 50 years going back to the dawn of the civil rights movement when they felt persecuted by the world.”
Meghan McCain had a lot to say about it.
“That woman knows nothing about GOP politics,” she reacted. “I would like to know the last time she left New York City and actually talked to a Republican voter in their home state.”
She then turned the tables on Reid by saying victimhood is currently the “fuel” of the Democratic Party.
“Across the country right now, at Democratic dinners, they’re removing Presidents Andrew Jackson and [Thomas] Jefferson from all meetings because they think they are racist and they don’t want them at their dinners anymore.”
McCain was referring to the annual fundraising dinners that were named after the two presidents and that Democrats in state after state have been removing them because they were slaveowners. She also mentioned several Democratic congresswomen parading sleeveless after the dress code was revised because they were fighting a “sexist regime.”
“I just think that the entire Democratic platform is about victimhood and the idea that she knows anything about Republican politics is hilarious,” she stated.
Lisa Boothe agreed with McCain that the Democratic Party that “plays the victim card constantly.”
After Juan Williams tried to push back on his co-hosts accusations, McCain pushed back harder saying that “the left is in love with the idea of being victims” and that their entire platform is that “you’re a victim in one context or another.”
“She may not like why President Trump won because he actually talked to voters in the middle of the country and listened to their problems,” she added. “It is none of her concern. What she needs to be concerned about is talking to the voters that they lost and when you’re in this bubble at MSNBC judging conservatives in the middle of the country, you’re sure as hell not going to win them back over.”
