Tensions escalated on Wednesday as MSNBC host Joy Reid and Real America’s Voice correspondent Ben Bergquam clashed outside the Manhattan Court House, where the show trial against former President Donald Trump is currently taking place. The incident occurred when Bergquam questioned Reid about Trump Derangement Syndrome, a term used to describe an intense dislike or hatred towards the former president.

Known for her strong negative views of Trump, Reid has been criticized by conservatives for what they perceive as the propagation of false narratives, mockery of Trump supporters, and alleged racism against white individuals. In an attempt to confront Reid about her alleged mental illness and hairstyle, Bergquam approached her during a break in the trial proceedings.

As Bergquam posed his question about whether individuals with Trump Derangement Syndrome are aware of their condition, Reid swiftly dismissed him by responding, “You’re an idiot.” However, the exchange quickly escalated as Reid became increasingly agitated and proceeded to use explicit language while shouting, “You are a f*cking idiot!”

The incident was captured on video, with the footage circulating on various media platforms. In the video, Bergquam also humorously asked Reid about her hairstyle, jokingly suggesting whether she had either stolen Trump’s haircut or vice versa. Reid appeared visibly displeased by the comment.
