MSNBC’s Joy Reid just revealed what everyone missed about Trump’s bizarre NY Times interview

MSNBC news host Joy Reid published an epic Twitter thread following the release of President Trump’s recent interview with the New York Times.  The interview caught everyone by surprise, first and foremost because it was with the Times,  publication with which the president has been incredibly hostile, but also for his calculated language and his trademark self-promotional flourishes with little if any basis in facts. As many as 24 claims Trump made in the 30 minute interview have been rated false or misleading by the Washington Post, and more than a few experts have commented on the president’s mental state after reading the transcripts released by the New York Times. Joy Reid took a slightly different tack.  She began her…
