President Trump found a new target for his Saturday morning ire.

Seemingly in response to MSNBC Joy Reid’s mild jabs at the President during her appearance on “All In With Chris Hayes” Friday evening, President Trump woke up bright and early Saturday to tweet questioning “who the hell” the network host is, before arguing she has a “bad reputation.”

As many on Twitter pointed out, its not the first time Trump has targeted the relevance of a person of color.

It’s unclear what exactly might have triggered Trump’s vexation. While co-hosting Hayes show Friday evening, Reid mocked Trump’s speech before Republicans in Baltimore this week, in which she claimed his talk sounded “like a desperate man.”

Notably, as Mediaite point out, during her two hour-long show on Saturday morning, Reid completely ignored Trump’s Twitter attacks and didn’t mention the remarks once.
