MSNBC host Joy Reid has had quite the week taking down conservatives and on Saturday she wiped the floor with a Trump loving right-winger who claimed that Planned Parenthood practices eugenics.
Trump supporter Alfonso Aguilar, who is the executive director of the Latino Partnership for Conservative Principles, tried in vain to defend the Republican nominee’s habit of retweeting white supremacists, calling it a “smear.”
“He does control his own Twitter account, and he is retweeting white nationalists,” the AMJoy host told Aguilar. “Which, if you’re following them, they’re somehow in the stream of your social media.”
“I think I could argue that is a double standard,” Aguilar replied.
“That is not a double standard,” Reid quickly countered.
“Margaret Sanger, let’s talk about Planned Parenthood” Aguilar said, apparently having nowhere else to turn when it comes to defending Trump and his racist social media tendencies.
”You’re mentioning a dead person, gone for many decades,” Reid reminded him.
“Planned Parenthood is not a eugenicist organization. And I think that is incredibly offensive. Planned Parenthood is a health organization. Good gracious,” said Reid as she held up her finger at her conservative guest.
This didn’t sway Aguilar, who stuck to his guns and continued with his argument.
“52 percent of all abortions are performed on Latino and African-Americans–” Aguilar began before Reid cut him off and shut him down.
“Okay, I think that smear on Planned Parenthood cannot go forward and we are not going to continue with that line of questioning, ” Reid said as she brought the interview to a screeching halt rather than allow Aguilar to peddle his lies.
