Trump, who tested positive for COVID-19 last week, faced backlash over the barefaced stunt he performed in front of the cameras following treatment for the contagion at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.
â€œI am speechless. I am stunned. I have to be honest with you, Iâ€™m disgusted by what I just saw,â€ said Reid, the host of MSNBCâ€™s â€œThe ReidOut.â€
â€œThis man is contagious,â€ she pointed out.
Reid then noted how Trump had â€œjust exposed his secret service agents,â€ who she described as â€œtrue professionalsâ€ who would â€œin every moment of their job would take a bullet for the president, not take one from the president.â€Â
â€œThere are moments in this job when you realize that you are witnessing some of the great horrors of history,â€ Reid said elsewhere on the show, adding: â€œThis is the most irresponsible thing Iâ€™ve ever seen a president do.â€
Trump faced similar accusations of putting agents in danger on Sunday with his drive-by to thank supporters.
