Tiffany Cross points out an inconvenient truth about the incompetent Trump presidency

Want straight talk on cable TV? Listen to Tiffany Cross. She perfectly describes the ills that led to the ascendency of an incompetent president.

Tiffany Cross strikes again

See full episodes here.

Tiffany Cross is one of those hosts/panelists/journalists that is refreshing to listen to when she speaks. She is plain-spoken but piercing with her commentary.

Here, Tiffany Cross did not mince her words.

“Jason, you know, being raised in households like we were,” Tiffany said. “We were raised to distrust the system. Everyone around me keeps saying the system is going to work. He is going to leave. These people are the human embodiment of why we are so distrustful of a system that is routinely historically and consistently harmed us. And so now we see the results of centuries of white supremacy that have elevated this very below average basic unintelligent man to the highest office in the land, as his first job in government, being president of the United States. And here we are, in the grips of a global pandemic that disproportionately hurt black and brown folks and an increasingly problematic economy where bread lines are getting longer.”

Prescient.

I started following Tiffany when she called out the media’s take on Trump.

“This is the first time that the media have been so bold to say the President made racist comments,” cross said. “Oh, not comments of racial undertones, not things that some people found racist.”

“I think had we call a thing a thing two years ago when this President kicked off his campaign by calling Mexicans rapists and drug dealers,” cross said, “Had we called a thing a thing in 2011 when he talked about Obama being a birther. Had we called a thing a thing decades ago when he called for the murder of the Central Park Five, the now exonerated five.”

Tiffany just got a new gig. She is taking over half of #AMJoy on Saturdays.

With former weekend host Joy Reid now entrenched as MSNBC’s anchor at 7 p.m. each weekday night, the network has picked political analyst Tiffany Cross and journalist Jonathan Capehart to take her place on Saturday and Sunday mornings.

Cross, 41, will host a two-hour show at 10 a.m. Saturdays, starting Dec. 12, while Capehart, 53, takes over the same time slot on Sundays, starting Dec. 13. Neither show has a name yet.

I am sure Tiffany Cross will bring a new audience. More importantly, she will enlighten some regulars.


My books, It’s Worth It: How to Talk To Your Right-Wing Relatives, Friends, and Neighbors” & “As I See It: Class Warfare: The Only Resort To Right Wing Doom” support  (1)  communication techniques &  (2) Progressive message delivery.
