1/ And in the #BecauseOfCourse moment of the day, the Bros are doing their best to prove @JoyAnnReid is trans-phobic by doing the same thing they always do, which is knowingly & willfully taking words/deeds completely out of context.

It's a charge without merit and they know it,
2/ As evidence for this claim they are passing around screenshots of tweets in which Reid repeatedly uses the name "Bradley Manning,"as evidence for her trans=phobia. Now, this would be problematic if it were not for the fact that Reid published those tweets in 2011...
3/ This, of course, was a full 2 years before Manning began privately telling people that she was trans.
What's most irritating & telling is the fact that those creating these screenshots KNOW this b/c the bottom portion of these tweets, which date them, is always cropped away,
