Joy Reid leads this episode of The ReidOut with a critical question that took over "politics Twitter" this past weekend thanks to a Washington Post essay by Robert Kagan--what's to be done about our constitutional crisis? Joy Reid and her panel discuss. Plus, this is shaping up to be a very busy week on Capitol Hill with Democrats juggling passage of an infrastructure bill, finalizing a human infrastructure package central to Biden's agenda, and staving off a government shutdown and default. Will Democrats be able to pass what is necessary to motivate voters in the coming election cycles? And, a report in Rolling Stone looked into the hold the anti-vaccine contingent currently has over the NBA. Journalist Jemele Hill, and the author of that report Matt Sullivan, join Joy with their analysis. Finally, in this edition of "The Absolute Worst," Joy critiques Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, who just signed a law restricting access to abortion medications. All this and much more in this edition of The ReidOut on MSNBC.

Mondaire Jones (D-NY) joins Joy Reid to discuss saying, "I think we are seeing the worst of what Americans believe about Congress play out in this moment." And, Joy Reid leads this episode of show with an anniversary of sorts. One year ago today, we got a warning sign that Donald Trump would not go quietly if he lost the 2020 election. Joy and her panel unpack the ongoing threat to our democracy. All this and much more in this edition of The ReidOut on MSNBC.
Joy Reid leads this edition of The ReidOut with the Republicans refusing to vote to increase the debt ceiling. Joy and her panel of experts discuss how this could have catastrophic results for America. Next, NBC News confirms that Donald Trump has sued the New York Times as well as his own niece, Mary Trump, over a 2018 report that shattered the illusion of him as a self-made billionaire. Will these lawsuits open the president to further unwanted scrutiny? Trump expert David Cay Johnston tells us that in his view, "Between now and the 2024 election Donald Trump is going to be indicted, probably more than once." Additionally, on Wednesday Democratic Senator Cory Booker called his Republican counterpart -- South Carolina Senator Tim Scott -- and told him that Democrats were done with negotiating on the police reform bill. The Rev. Al Sharpton joins us on what's next in the police reform fight. Finally, in this edition of "The Absolute Worst," learn why Joy Reid tells Brazil's COVID misinformation-spreading President Bolsonaro, "Please stay home and don't come back soon!" after his UN visit.

Cori Bush joins on the showdown in Congress over the debt ceiling, reconciliation bill, and the passage of the "human" infrastructure bill, with the progressive caucus at odds with moderate Democrats such as Sen.

Chris Murphy gives his analysis of President Biden's statements on Tuesday at the U.N. on better implementing America's assets as we end our endless wars. Finally, Homeland Security Sec.

Plus, video from over the weekend shows a horse patrol for U.S. Customs and Border Protection trying to corral human beings like cattle, chasing after Haitian immigrants trying to cross back into the United States. Congresswoman Ilhan Omar of Minnesota joins Joy Reid to discuss. Then, it goes without saying that no family should ever have to endure what the family of missing young woman Gabby Petito is enduring. But, the way this story has captivated the nation has many wondering where is the same level of media attention when people of color go missing? Joy Reid and her panel of experts explore this phenomenon. And, Saturday marked one year since the great Supreme Court justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg passed away. Now, the very things she fought so tirelessly for are being threatened by the same Supreme Court that she served on for 27 years. Finally, in tonight's "Absolute Worst," Joy drives home why Democrats need to protect free and fair elections so the rest of us can continue to live in a democracy.

She says, "the worst part of all of this honestly, is not even the personal attacks. The worst part is who is enjoying this so much." All this and much more in this edition of The ReidOut on MSNBC.
Joy Reid begins this episode of The ReidOut discussing why in part Gov. Gavin Newsom was able to beat the recall effort. According to exit polls, the most important issue for voters was the pandemic. Joy and her panel discuss the apparent GOP miscalculation that they can win big with an anti-vaccine, anti-mask platform. Meanwhile, in Pennsylvania, state Republicans -- in a breathtaking breech of privacy -- voted on Wednesday to subpoena Gov. Tom Wolf's administration for detailed records of every registered voter in the state, including personal information like the last four digits of their Social Security numbers. Joy's expert guests give their analysis. Next, we discuss the climate collapse that looms closer every day -- unless our politicians decide to do something about it. And, 58 years ago, on the morning of Sunday, September 15th, four young girls preparing for a ‘youth day' service at the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama were killed by a bomb planted by White supremacists. The only surviving victim, Sarah Collins Rudolph, tells Joy Reid how this tragic event -- which also galvanized the Civil Right Movement -- left her with trauma that has impacted her entire life. All this and more in this edition of The ReidOut on MSNBC.
In this edition of The ReidOut podcast: Hip-hop star Nicki Minaj tweeting about a friend of a cousin in Trinidad who allegedly had a negative reaction to a COVID-19 vaccine was essentially the star making public her own vaccine deliberation--a better way to describe vaccine hesitancy, experts say--which is different from refusal. Joy Reid explains how the tweets of this major celebrity have been used by certain right wing figures to further politicize the pandemic, while what America really needs is more open, honest conversation. Plus: Senate Democrats released a new voting bill on Tuesday after reaching a compromise with Sen. Joe Manchin. Yet, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell says it has no chance of passing. Will this spur reform of the filibuster? Sen. Alex Padilla joins Joy Reid on these developments. And: The California recall election that could unseat Gov. Gavin Newsom is just one of over 60 recall elections happening at various levels, Rep. Karen Bass tells Joy Reid, possibly signaling "something bigger at play."

All this and more in this edition of The ReidOut on MSNBC.
Joy Reid leads this episode of The ReidOut with the apparent reality that this is the first time an entire, major political party has organized itself around opposition to a life-saving vaccine--the modern Republican Party.

Joy and her panel discuss the recall election that threatens to unseat the Democratic governor, possibly handing the state to his leading opponent, controversial conservative talk radio host Larry Elder. Then, despite being a target on Jan. 6, former Vice President Mike Pence was caught on camera praising a journalist posing as an insurrectionist for embracing the Big Lie. Rep. Eric Swalwell joins us with his analysis. Next, Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, author of “Melania and Me: The Rise and Fall of My Friendship with the First Lady,” and former senior advisor to former first lady Melania Trump, shares her view on a new book on Melania Trump. It alleges that Donald Trump knew about the violence at the Capitol insurrection at least an hour before he attacked Mike Pence. Finally, in "The Absolute Worst," Joy critiques the former president and other conservatives for their commemorations of the September 11th attacks, which many say sullied the solemnity of the day. All this and much more in this edition of The ReidOut on MSNBC.
Joy Reid leads this episode of The ReidOut with the collective sigh of relief that President Biden has announced far-reaching new federal requirements to compel the millions of still-unvaccinated Americans to get their shots, which was followed by a right wing meltdown. Then, Joy commemorates the September 11 attacks, saying "Even twenty years later, it hurts. And so this weekend, we'll remember. And hurt and try to heal again." Next, with the California recall vote just days away, there are some encouraging signs for Governor Gavin Newsom. Former California Governor Jerry Brown joins Joy Reid on the nature of recall elections, and why he believes the GOP frontrunner Larry Elder must be defeated. Finally, Joy is joined by Morgan Freeman, the Academy Award winning actor and an executive producer of "The Killing of Kenneth Chamberlain," a new film about a man killed in his NY apartment by police in 2011.

Next, Texas is hurtling towards a voter suppression election next year, and its bounty hunter abortion law has patients flocking to other states with overwhelmingly strained clinics. Rep. Pramila Jayapal joins Joy Reid to discuss what is going on in Texas, and the need to protect women's right to choose. Then, a relentless COVID-19 misinformation campaign is winning major battles in the U.S., adding further burnout to healthcare workers and turning once-sleepy school board meetings into heckling, and sometimes violent scenes.

And, with less than a week before the California recall election comes to an end, Vice President Kamala Harris campaigned for Governor Gavin Newsom on Thursday.

Joy Reid begins this special two-hour edition of The ReidOut with what is apparently the Republican long game in the party's likely quest for ultimate power, our expert guests say. Republicans have been flooding the election boards, school boards, and local, city, and county ranks for a long time. Joy Reid and her panel discuss the GOP geminating its tremendous base of political influence at the local level, and what Democrats must do to balance the scales. Then, in the eight months since the Jan. 6 insurrectionists stormed the U.S. Capitol, more than 550 people have been charged with federal crimes. We bring you the latest developments. Plus, multiple outlets are now reporting that House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy's phone records are subject to the preservation requests that the Jan. 6 select committee issued on Monday to over 30 social media and telecom companies. We highlight McCarthy's attempts to prevent compliance with these requests. Next, The Supreme Court's late night decision on the Texas abortion law has highlighted the issue of the shadow docket, where the court makes "emergency" decisions--a tool many say is being abused to advance conservative rulings with little scrutiny. Finally, in this edition of "The Absolute Worst," Joy critiques the Republican Party for calling itself "pro-life." All this and much more in this special, two-hour edition of The ReidOut on MSNBC.
Joy Reid leads this episode of The ReidOut podcast with a big dose of existential dread. Much of New York and New Jersey are under water -- with more than 40 people dying from devastating floods Wednesday night. Will this finally be the moment that people start acknowledging just how bad the climate crisis is? Meanwhile, COVID-19 continues to rage across the country -- with children's hospitals at capacity and pleading for help. And, in their second dead of night ruling in just over a week, after striking down protections for Americans facing eviction last week, the conservative majority on the Supreme Court declined to overturn the six-week abortion ban in Texas. The abortion law has no exceptions for incest or rape, and deputizes private citizens as bounty hunters who can search for anyone who performed or helped a woman get an abortion after that six-week period, before most women even know they're pregnant. Joy Reid also critiques Sen. Susan Collins for the part she played in creating this conservative Supreme Court. Guests former Sen. Barbara Boxer, Rep. Karen Bass, and more experts discuss these critical political issues and more in this edition of The ReidOut on MSNBC.
Joy Reid leads The ReidOut tonight with the new, draconian abortion law that went into effect in Texas after the Supreme Court declined to take action. Sen. Elizabeth Warren joins us on this development saying, "Let's remember that 70% of Americans want to see Roe v. Wade as the law of the land... Congress could pass Roe v. Wade." Plus, millions of people are poised to lose their unemployment benefits on Monday, when federal pandemic policies expire after being extended twice. This comes just a week after the Supreme Court's conservative majority struck down the Biden administration's stopgap eviction moratorium. Rep. Hakeem Jeffries joins Joy Reid to discuss what the Democrats plan to do to advance their agenda, which could ameliorate these issues. Also, Elijah McClain's father LaWayne Mosley joins us saying of his son, "that's not his character, that's not his nature," regarding the Aurora police statement claiming McClain violently resisted arrest, issued after a grand jury indicted the officers and medics involved in his 2019 death. All this and more in this edition of The ReidOut with Joy Reid.
Joy Reid leads this episode of The ReidOut with the Republicans who apparently continue to pour gasoline on the flames that led to Jan. 6. Rep. Eric Swalwell of California, a Trump impeachment manager earlier this year, joins us to discuss the controversial statements of GOP Rep. Madison Cawthorn and other prominent conservatives. Plus, today marks the first day in 7,268 days that our country is no longer fighting a war in Afghanistan. In a defiant tone on Tuesday, President Biden said he refused to continue a war that was no longer in the service of the vital national interests of our country. Joy Reid and her panel critique critics of the president, who seem to want America to stay in "forever wars." And, much of New Orleans is without power because a major transmission tower crumbled during Hurricane Ida. White House Senior Adviser and Director of Public Engagement Cedric Richmond, who is also a former Louisiana congressman, speaks with us as the liaison between the White House and local officials there. Next, Rep. Val Demings of Florida, a Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate, speaks out against the violence erupting over mask mandates in her state and nationwide. All this and more in this edition of The ReidOut on MSNBC.

Jake Auchincloss, a former Marine who commanded infantry in Afghanistan, joins us to discuss. Plus, 16 years to the day that Hurricane Katrina devastated Louisiana, Hurricane Ida slammed into the state with 150-mile-per-hour winds -- one of the strongest hurricanes to ever make landfall. MSNBC's Ali Velshi joins Joy Reid live from New Orleans with the latest. Finally, an NBC News tally has confirmed we have now surpassed 39 million COVID-19 cases in America since the start of the pandemic. Dr. Anthony Fauci says that we could suffer another 100,000 deaths by December. Joy's expert guests analyze how disinformation is likely contributing to this prognosis, as they weigh in on the possible motives of those making these destructive assertions. All this and more in this edition of The ReidOut on MSNBC.
Joy Reid leads this episode The ReidOut with the U.S. on the cusp of ending the longest war in its history. Senator Chris Murphy of Connecticut, a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, joins us to discuss. Then: for months before Capitol police officer Lt. Michael Byrd revealed his identity in an interview with NBC News, the former president and his allies had been relentlessly trying to out him. Mary Trump, Donald Trump's niece and the author of “The Reckoning: Our Nation's Trauma and Finding a Way to Heal," and Cedric Alexander, a former member of President Obama's task force on 21st century policing, join Joy Reid with their analysis.

Then, The ReidOut airs Lester Holt's exclusive, NBC News interview with U.S. Capitol Police Officer Lt. Michael Byrd, who likely saved the lives of many lawmakers when he fatally shot Capitol insurrectionist Ashli Babbitt as she tried to breach the Speaker's Lobby, yards from where members of Congress were evacuating. Lt. Byrd has been demonized by many conservatives, but Rep. Madeleine Dean joins us to thank him profusely as she remembers the horrors of that day. Rep Dean tells Joy Reid, "For the last seven months I have wondered who was it who was trying to help save our lives." Finally, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez says on the need to evacuate as many Afghan refugees as possible, "There are veterans across this country that served valiantly, and they want to make sure that the words that they gave and the promises that they offered at the very least can be held and kept." All this and more in this edition of The ReidOut on MSNBC.
Joy Reid leads this episode of The ReidOut with what could be the way out of the pandemic. As our nation's healthcare system is wobbling under a continued assault by the delta variant, what has been a vaccine push is now becoming a vaccine must, with more and more vaccine requirements taking effect. Then, the House Jan. 6 select committee is demanding materials about the Trump administration's possible involvement in the Capitol insurrection. Chairman Bennie Thompson has set a two-week deadline for those materials to be turned over before he resorts to subpoenas. Joy and her expert legal guests bring their analysis. And, with six days to go before the August 31st deadline to leave Afghanistan, the State Department gave its first full report on the number of Americans who have been safely evacuated. We break down how what has been a largely successful evacuation has been misrepresented and politicized. Bishop William Barber joins with the latest on the voting rights battle.

Charlie Crist joins us on the pandemic #crisis in Florida. Then, Joy and her guests discuss how for the past few days the American media gaze has been fixed on Afghanistan, and the potential for terrorism to rear its ugly head again with the Taliban back in charge, with 24-7 dissections of everything the Biden administration did or did not do. But what about the threat of home-grown terrorism from U.S. citizens?
