Republican Congressman Steve Scalise deserved to get shot by an unhinged leftist gunman because liberals disapprove of his voting record.

That’s what MSNBC hack Joy Reid seemed to suggest when she trashed Scalise for supporting gun rights, not supporting gay marriage, and for voting to repeal the dumpster fire known as Obamacare. All while he fights for his life.

It’s a low blow even for the leftist propaganda shill, who obviously doesn’t care that Scalise was not around to defend his voting record or his reputation.

Scalise remains hospitalized in serious condition after being shot on June 14 by former Bernie Sanders volunteer James Hodgkinson, who tried to assassinate Republicans lawmakers at a baseball practice.

Reid teased her segment by resorting to her usual race-baiting, tweeting: “Rep. Scalise was shot by a white man with a violent background, and saved by a black lesbian police officer.”

Joy blithely left out that Scalise was saved by a black woman WITH A GUN from an unhinged leftist terrorist who was a devoted MSNBC fan.

Reid then joined her guest, NAACP board member Rev. William J. Barber II, in attacking Scalise, who is lying in a hospital bed.

Reid implied that Scalise was a racist by repeating a debunked claim that Scalise had spoken at an event 15 years ago for a group founded by former KKK leader David Duke.

“It’s a delicate thing because 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 claimed. “He did come to leadership after some controversy over attending a white nationalist event, which he says he didn’t know it was.”

That report has since been discredited. Even Democratic Rep. Cedric Richmond, who’s black, has said: “I don’t think Steve Scalise has a racist bone in his body.”

Joy Reid also slammed Scalise for his stance on gay marriage, Obamacare and guns, suggesting he deserved to get shot for his views:

He also co-sponsored a bill to amend the Constitution to define marriage as between a man and a woman. He co-sponsored the House healthcare bill … and he co-sponsored a bill to repeal the ban on semiautomatic weapons. Because he is in jeopardy and everybody is pulling for him, are we required in a moral sense to put that aside in the moment?

Moonbat actor George Takei — whose claim to fame is that he starred on a TV show in the 1960s — also kicked Scalise while he’s down, gloating: “The officer who saved bigoted, homophobic Rep. Steve Scalise during baseball practice was a black lesbian.”

Not surprisingly, Twitter clapped back at Takei’s tone-deaf remarks.


Even MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough trashed Takei’s insensitive comments.


Meanwhile, Joy Reid was widely slammed on all sides, with her MSNBC colleague Joe Scarborough condemning her inappropriate attacks.


Fox News host Meghan McCain also smacked down Joy’s reckess, violent rhetoric.
