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." Finally: COVID-19 vaccine hesitancy and how to talk to people about it, in the wake of Nicki Minaj's viral "vaccine deliberation" tweets, are discussed by Dr. Uché Blackstock in conversation with Joy Reid.

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.

In this revealing observational portrait of political courage, Brandon Kramer's THE FIRST STEP, focuses his lens on Black progressive activist and political commentator Van Jones as he faces a polarized society head on in an effort to reform a broken criminal justice system. Jones, known for calling Donald Trump's election “a whitelash” live on primetime TV, navigates increasingly tense and isolating political and racial divides in his attempt to become a “bridge builder” during the Trump administration. Condemned by the right for his progressive beliefs, and by the left for embracing conservatives, this fraught and cinematically captured personal journey questions his integrity from all sides, forcing him to consider not only his activism but his own identity. THE FIRST STEP takes us behind the scenes of these dramatic power struggles, from internal divisions within both parties, to the lives of activists fighting on the frontlines for their communities. The First Step features Louis L. Reed, Jessica Jackson, Virgie Walker, Pete White, Tylo James. Including Jared Kushner, Senator Bernie Sanders, Senator Cory Booker, Senator Kamala Harris, Senator Shelly Capito, Senator Rand Paul, Senator Mike Lee, Congresswoman Karen Bass, Congresswoman Bonnie Watson Coleman, Patrisse Cullors, Charlemagne Tha God, Karen Hunter, and Kim Kardashian. Director Brandon Kramer joins us to talk about the daunting challenge faced by Van ones as he attempts to find the common ground of common interest and policy reforms that will benefit all Americans, while being vilified by many of the same people he is working with.

On "EWTN News Nightly" tonight: President Joe Biden headed off to an Amtrak station in Philadelphia today as part of the “Getting America Back on Track Tour.” And a renewed push for police reform is taking place on Capitol Hill. It's being led by Democratic lawmakers Karen Bass, Cory Booker and Republican Tim Scott, but several issues divide the sides, including qualified immunity, which shields officers from being personally liable. May first, also referred to as May Day or Workers Day, is a day with historical significance for the Communist and Socialist movements. Professor of Political Science at Grove City College and author of "The Devil and Karl Marx", Dr. Paul Kengor, tells us a little more about May Day, its origins and specifically what the Catholic Church did in 1955 to address Communism. A conference set to begin this Saturday, both in-person and virtually, will examine the importance of Our Lady of Guadalupe. President of the Institute for Advanced Catholic Studies at the University of Southern California, Dorian Llywelyn, joins to tell us about the conference and why it is being held now rather than closer to the feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe in December.

Episode HighlightsRep. Bass on Our Interconnected World“All of our lives changed dramatically last year, on the entire planet. Why? Because the planet earth is very small with communications and travel the way it is. And our health, our wellbeing, our prosperity, is completely linked to people around the world. And using COVID is the perfect example of how we’re all linked. This virus, we will not overcome this virus until we overcome it as a planet. So for example, there’s vaccines that are available now. I’m very excited about that. But we’re also learning about new strains. Until you stamp COVID out in the world, you can’t just stamp it out in the United States because the new strains will continue to mutate. So, using what we’re going through now is a perfect example to explain why we are completely connected and our health, wellbeing, and prosperity is connected and depends on the health, prosperity, and wellbeing of other countries as well.”Rep. Bass on the Responsibility of Living in a Democracy“It is definitely when there’s things that you complain about in government, it really is everyone’s responsibility, and part of our American culture is we vote and then we go home. I would just ask you, as an elected official, vote and stay involved with your elected officials please. Because it’s our collective responsibility to make sure that our system works.”

This is the episode of Black Diplomats where Rep. Karen Bass starts the soft diplomacy on Terrell, trying to talk him into joining the State Department! Bass represents California’s 37th district in Los Angeles, and is a fierce advocate for all the good things. As Chair of the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Africa she has regular contact with folks from the Continent and a lot of good ideas for how we can improve our behavior on their behalf. She’s involved in the Represent America Abroad Act to diversify our diplomatic corps, and the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act to bring incremental change to American policing. Terrell asks her if the bill goes far enough, and she provides the kind of candid answer you don’t usually get from politicians. As they get deeper into her roots, we find out that being a foreign policy wonk is nothing new to Karen Bass. She cut her teeth protesting against the Vietnam War and was dedicated to the anti-apartheid movement in the ‘80s. Her critical analysis of white supremacy in the global context is honed to a razor’s edge, and on display in this episode. Near the end of their conversation Bass breaks down America’s history of supporting bad actors in Africa, and then flips it - suggesting Terrell should help diversify the State Department by signing up for service!

Rush from October 2016 about how the Establishment wanted to teach Trump and everyone who came after him not to try what he tried. Hank Johnson calls for arrest of Trump, so nobody ever tries to do what Trump does. Again. Lindsey Graham says he's had enough of Trump. Not enough citizens, not enough elected leaders are educated about the left. John Adams on the Constitution and morality. Where was all the burning and looting in Washington yesterday? Democrats have protested at the Capitol for generations, Code Pink gets into hearings all the time. Anti-Trump protests were held inside the Capitol, now they're calling it the worst crime in our history. Callers outraged over the way Washington has treated Trump. They want you to denounce Trump and it's beginning to work with elected Republicans, Washington Republicans. PODCAST SUMMARY HOUR 2: Schumer calls for Trump's immediate removal from office. Democrats want to impeach him or have Pence invoke the 25th Amendment. Jim Cramer's tale on the market. Business leaders consider cutting funds to Republicans. Elite socialists now control the stock market. Democrats are now party of the rich, will alter tax code to slam the middle class, help rich donors protect wealth. Shopify bans Trump gear.
