MSNBC host Joy Reid is catching major heat from Jane Sanders, wife of Bernie Sanders. During a typical rant on Twitter, Reid accused Sanders of mistreating his wife.

Um... I get that he has a hardcore following, but his own attitudes toward women, from his weird early writings to his physical dismissal of women in his presence (including his own wife) make that an incredibly dubious prospect.— Joy Reid (@JoyAnnReid) November 29, 2017
Her comments did not go unnoticed.
I didn't answer your biased reporting about Bernie during the last 2 years @JoyAnnReid. But don't ever use me to demean my husband. I am very happy & very proud to be Bernie's wife. Your perception couldn't be more wrong. Have you ever talked with him? You've never spoken w/me. https://t.co/SZG7uV8cfO— Jane O'Meara Sanders (@janeosanders) November 29, 2017
While it is true Bernie Sanders has written some pretty weird stuff, like that paperabout a woman with a fantasy of gang rape, the shot at his wife was uncalled for.
Not surprisingly, Reid is a Clinton supporter.
