BREAKING NEWS – New York City, New York – MSNBC’s Joy Reid celebrated the night before Thanksgiving by attacking “the myth” that she claims is pushed by Republicans that the nation’s founding was anything but violent.

The “ReidOut” host opened her show by starting to “unpack” Thanksgiving despite it being a cherished tradition for Americans.

“It is a holiday riddled with historical inaccuracies, built on this myth that the indigenous welcomed their colonizers with open arms and ears of corn,” she began. “A simplistic fairytale interpretation of a 1621 encounter between indigenous tribes and English settlers. This is why I do not celebrate Thanksgiving in my home. In the past on Thanksgiving Day, if any family member including my husband, mentions the word ‘turkey’ I slapped the s**t out of them. You think I’m kidding? All you have to do is check with the local police, and they will tell you I have gotten arrested on several Thanksgiving Days charged with an assault, for backhanding someone in my household.”
