Winsome Sears Challenges Joy Reid For MSNBC Invite: ‘Let’s See If She’s Woman Enough’

Virginia Lt. Governor-elect Winsome Sears challenged MSNBC host Joy Reid for an invite on the left-leaning network after Reid claimed the GOP is “dangerous” for stoking “white nationalism.”.

Sears is Jamaican, a former Marine, and, after Tuesday, is the first woman of color elected to state-wide office in Virginia. She defeated Democrat Hala Ayala, a member of the state’s House of Delegates, in a GOP sweep of state offices that brought Republicans into the governorship and office of state attorney general, as well.

Sears appeared on Fox News on Wednesday to react to a clip of Reid claiming that Republicans are “dangerous to our national security” for “stoking that kind of soft white nationalism [that] eventually leads to the hardcore stuff.”

“I wish Joy Reid would invite me on her show. Let’s see if she’s woman enough to do that. I’d go in a heartbeat and we’d have a real discussion without Joy speaking about me behind my back, if you will,” Sears responded. “I mean, Joy, come on. Get your facts straight and then come talk to me.”

Sears also put out a challenge to former ESPN anchor Jemele Hill to come on MSNBC as well for a “panel discussion.” Hill reacted to Republicans’ winning in Virginia by blaming “white supremacy.”

“It’s not the messaging, folks. This country simply loves white supremacy,” Hill tweeted on Wednesday.

While we’re at it, let’s make it a panel and invite @jemelehill to join in some thoughtful dialogue! https://t.co/Fs5t3uGaxX

Republicans rode a wave of parental outrage to victory in Virginia after school board meetings across the state became battlegrounds between parents and school administrators over the inclusion of Critical Race Theory-inspired curriculum in schools. Parents also pushed back against progressive policies such as forced masking of students.

In Loudoun County, Virginia, the battle between parents and school administrators exploded after a parent accused the public school system of covering up his daughter’s alleged rape by a boy in a skirt, as The Daily Wire first reported.

Sears, who will serve under Governor-elect Glenn Youngkin, laid out some of the priorities of their administration in a victory address on Tuesday evening.

“I am at a loss for words for the first time in my life,” Sears said. “So, I’m here because of you. I’m here because you voted for me, I’m here because you put your trust in me. That’s the only reason I’m here. Thank you.”
