Joy Reid conducts one-on-one conversations with politicians and newsmakers while addressing provocative political issues both inside and outside of the beltway. Reid, who is also a best-selling author and public speaker, joined MSNBC in 2011 as a contributor. Drawing from her decades-long experience in politics, passion for addressing the intersection of race, justice and culture, as well as her signature tenacious interviewing style, Reid kicks off MSNBC’s primetime lineup by delving into American politics as it unfolds.

Rep. Ayanna Pressley calls on Congress to protect abortion rights if the courts won't
Joy Reid leads this episode of The ReidOut with the Supreme Court hearing arguments on Wednesday in which they were asked to allow Mississippi to uphold a ban on abortions after 15 weeks. Listening to the oral arguments it became clear that all six conservative justices were either openly or implicitly interested in entertaining Mississippi's request. Rep. Ayanna Pressley joins Joy to discuss. Next, the House select committee investigating Jan. 6 has voted unanimously to refer Jeffrey Clark for criminal contempt of congress charges. Clark is the former Justice Department official who reportedly plotted with Donald Trump in a scheme to invalidate the electoral votes of Georgia and other states. MSNBC legal analyst Glenn Kirschner joins us with his expert analysis. Next, we are just three days away from a possible government shutdown and Republicans are threatening to not just let it happen, but to make it happen, which would furlough hundreds of thousands of federal employees just three weeks before Christmas. Sen. Chris Murphy weighs in. All this and much more in this edition of The ReidOut on MSNBC.
Joy Reid: The faction of the right defying COVID-fighting measures is a death cult
Joy Reid leads this episode of The ReidOut with the Republicans defying Covid-fighting measures. She observes, "How many more people have to die before we say what we've all known for some time. This faction of the right is a death cult." Next, we turn to the three appellate judges who heard arguments on Tuesday about whether Donald Trump can withhold White House records from the select committee investigating Jan. 6. It is no surprise that the panel of judges appeared skeptical of Trump’s case. Then, Joy and her panel analyze the Supreme Court being set to hear arguments from the state of Mississippi, which is outright asking the court to overturn Roe v. Wade. This could spell the beginning of the end of Americans' constitutional right to an abortion. Finally, in "The Absolute Worst," Joy says, "I think we should buy these books even more and give them as gifts," in response to those attempting to ban books that teach the truth about American history, the Civil Rights Movement, and more. These topics and much more are analyzed by Joy Reid and her guests in this edition of The ReidOut on MSNBC.

Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and chief medical advisor to President Biden, joins Joy with his advice. Next, we turn to the Supreme Court, which on Wednesday will hear arguments about the Mississippi law that prohibits nearly all abortions after the 15th week of pregnancy. Rep. Barbara Lee, co-chair of the Congressional Pro-Choice Caucus, joins The ReidOut on concerns that the court could deliver a disingenuous decision that would gut the constitutional right to abortion. Finally, in this special edition of "The Absolute Worst," Joy is joined by Dean Obeidallah, who slams GOP Rep. Lauren Boebert for spewing anti-Muslim bigotry. All this and much more in this edition of The ReidOut on MSNBC.
Conviction of men who killed Ahmaud Arbery is positive, yet illuminates the system's flaws
Joy Reid leads this episode of The ReidOut with the verdict in one of the most important trials in recent American history: the conviction of three White Georgia men who chased down a Black man--Ahmaud Arbery--in their pickup trucks in what has been described as a modern-day lynching. Next, Joy and her panel try to determine how the Biden administration can better sell all the economic gains it has set into motion, because the American public in large part erroneously believes the economy is not doing well. Then, we discuss Kyle Rittenhouse becoming a celebrity among GOP leadership and many in the Republican electorate, and what this could mean going forward. Plus, Washington Post reporter Dana Hedgpeth and Brian Weeden, Chairman of the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe, join The ReidOut on Thanksgiving being a "day of mourning" for the Indigenous community. All this and much more in this edition of The ReidOut on MSNBC.
Rep. Swalwell: After Trump we are trying to make America a democracy again
Joy Reid leads this episode of The ReidOut with the select committee on Jan. 6 issuing brand new subpoenas targeting the right-wing militias at the forefront of the Capitol insurrection. Rep. Eric Swalwell joins The ReidOut to discuss. Plus, the judge in the trial for Ahmaud Arbery's killing sent the jury home Tuesday night meaning there is no verdict so far. We discuss what could come next. Next, in a special "Absolute Worst," Joy Reid slams the lack of urgency from both Democratic and especially Republican politicians regarding our voting rights crisis. Radio host and activist Joe Madison also joins us as he continues his hunger strike for voting rights. All this and much more in this edition of The ReidOut on MSNBC.
Legal to shoot people in Wisconsin
Since the judge and jury in Wisc have made it legal to shoot people, I would think protesters would be reasonably justified to believe anyone holding a gun at their rallies are a threat that they can legally eliminate. It’s open warfare in Wisc and probably other states as well.
Joy Reid is a racist
