Joy Reid is a news commentator and leftist talking head that is notoriously and staunchly anti-Republican and against President Donald Trump. Her dislike of the President is so intense that it led her to make some remarks which seem to indicate that she was eagerly anticipating the outcome of “Trump’s Benghazi.” One can only assume that any parallels between the attack in Iraq and the tragedy in Libya under the Obama administration would be the possible death toll for American citizens in foreign countries.
Reid took to twitter to gladly announce the unfolding of Trump’s Benghazi, her unaltered tweet can be read below:

(Video) US Embassy in Iraq Attacked by Protestors Chanting “Down, Down USA”
Shocking news emerged from Iraq where a crowd of violent protestors assembled to march in the United States Embassy; the disturbance comes hot on the heels of a series of air strikes in the region aimed at targeting weapons depots and other high value targets for terrorist activities in the area.
The erstwhile rioters were chanting the phrase “Down, Down USA” as they caused havoc throwing objects, smashing security cameras, and even starting a fire. Thankfully, the protestors were not heavily armed as was the case in the Benghazi incident, and they were quelled by American security forces. Some eleven people or so were said to be injured among the protestors from anti-riot efforts.
The embassy conflict comes as a direct response to US intervention in the area as well as at the tail end of a series of violent government protests in Iraq where hundreds of people have been killed or injured.
The disturbing scene can be watched on video below:
