Joy Reid, MSNBC host, failed this weekend as she attempted to swing at President Trump’s wives (ex’s and current), when she pointed out that two of his three wives are from nations formerly part of the Soviet Union. And didn’t even really clarify what the point of her rants were.
Donald Trump married one American (his second wife) and two women from what used to be Soviet Yugoslavia: Ivana-Slovakia, Melania-Slovenia.
We here are thrilled to see what Joy Reid might fail at next. This isn’t the first story we’ve posted about her and it surely won’t be the last. What do you think of Reid and her “findings”?
As written for The Daily Caller by Chuck Ross:
There are several errors in that tweet. Reid is correct that one of the three women Trump has married is an American. Marla Maples was born in Georgia, the southern U.S. state, not the former Soviet republic.
She is also correct that Melania Trump, who Trump married in 2005, is from Slovenia.
But Trump’s first wife, Ivana, is not from Slovakia. Nor was Slovakia part of Yugoslavia. And Yugoslavia, while communist, was not a member of the Soviet bloc.
Ivana Trump, the mother of Trump’s first three children, was born in what is now the Czech Republic, formerly known as Czechoslovakia. Czechoslovakia became a part of the Soviet bloc in 1948, a year before Ivana was born.
