MSNBC’s Joy Ann Reid accused President Trump of not understanding the “human scale of misery” caused by Hurricane Harvey.
Reid appeared on Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show” Wednesday night and discussed, among other things, Trump’s response to the natural disaster.
“He sees everything in terms of ratings and crowd size, right, so for him the accomplishment he sees in Harvey is that it’s the biggest in the era of Donald Trump,” she said. “So there’s something really disturbing about the way that he talks about it–he said something today, you know, ‘Harvey’s a really nice name but the storm, not nice.'”
“No kidding, it’s a hurricane! I don’t think he understands the human scale of misery,” Reid continued. “I don’t think that he can connect with the compassion you normally have when you see a disaster like this.”
Host Trevor Noah also asked Reid if she expects Trump to be impeached any time soon, and she asserted that he would remain in office until Republicans lose their majorities in Congress.
