Trump Derangement Syndrome is real, and there are many severe cases among us. I think it’s safe to say that Joy Reid has entered Stage 4. I mean, she’s basically gushing over the thought of Ivanka Trump getting arrested. For what? I do not know.
She and her guest, Elie Mystal, were basically saying that there’s only one way to really go after Trump. You can only hurt him by targeting his kids.
“Do you remember in ‘The Firm,’ how Tom Cruise brings down the entire mob on overbilling? In these reports, what we have is Ivanka Trump, as part of the Trump organization, overbilling the inaugural committee,” Mystal said. “That could be it right there. What we now have — this is the first time — look, we’ve talked a lot about Don Jr., we know now he was at the Trump Tower meeting, we talked a lot about Eric, because he seems to be Fredo.”
“This is the first time that we have Ivanka—which is like the only kid he likes—in the crosshairs,” Mystal continued. “She apparently, according to these reports, was involved with overcharging the inaugural committee, and somebody had to tell her: this is going to look bad when we get audited. For a long time I thought that the only way we are really going to get to Trump is if you go after his kids. If you put the kids in legal peril, that’s the only thing that’s going to shock him out of his lying, deceitful, cocoon. And this could be the way to do it.”
“There is this finding that people — we’re going to talk about this later in the show — that you can’t indict a sitting President. But it doesn’t say anything about a sitting President’s daughter,” Reid added.
Like I said. Stage 4.
