On Sunday's AM Joy, MSNBC host Joy Reid served up a double helping of "Meathead" as liberal film maker Rob Reiner and his wife, Michele Reiner, spent a segment ranting against President Donald Trump and his "hardcore racist" supporters. Michele Reiner invoked Nazi death camps as she called Trump "evil" and likened him to Adolf Hitler.
Rob Reiner repeatedly accused Trump supporters of being "racists" if they agree that immigrants who cross the border illegally should be prosecuted, resulting in some being separated from their children during detention as required by law.
Early in the segment, Rob Reiner declared:
Let's cut to the chase -- this is about racism. This is pure and simple racism -- that's all this is. He's hoping that the people who support him will be ginned up and running to the polls to make sure that brown people don't come into America. That's exactly what's going on here.
Reid soon suggested that Trump political advisors want to motivate the Republican base "by separating brown children and parents," leading Michele Reiner to respond, "This is based on racism, period," adding that "they don't want more brown people coming into this country."
She soon likened the Trump administration to Nazi Germany as she added: "And I have to tell you, my mother was in Auschwitz. She got separated from her entire family -- lost her entire family. I never thought I would live to see something like that, particularly in this country, ever again in my lifetime."
He soon added: "And 25 percent of the country -- whether it's 20, 30 percent -- are hardcore racists. They do not want to see brown people coming into America. That's just what's going on here."
After it was mentioned that, on other issues, President Trump has recently reversed Obama administration policies, Michele Reiner asserted: "Every single thing that Obama did, he's dismantling. Every single thing. And don't tell me that's not racist."
She soon called Trump "evil" as she added: "To quote that new book that just came out, he is evil. He is evil. And the thing is, I thought, 'He'll come in and he won't really know because he's not that smart smart, and he'll just do a showmanship thing,' but he's evil.
