MSNBC’s Joy Reid Apologizes After Hot Mic Catches Her Using F-Word

MSNBC host Joy Reid apologized to viewers after a hot mic caught her using the f-word during a segment on the border.

On Monday evening’s The ReidOut, Reid introduced a segment in which video was played of a speech in which President Joe Biden called for congressional passage of a border bill, despite former President Donald Trump’s efforts to scuttle such a deal.

The clips showed Biden saying that “if that bill were the law today, I’d shut down the border now and I’d fix it quickly.” He also said that “Congress needs to get it done.”

Then, Reid could be heard saying, “starting another f—ing war.”

Reid then told viewers, “Still trying to kill the deal,” an apparent reference to Trump.

Reid apologized to viewers later in the show. “I was chatting during a clip that was playing,” Reid said. “We try to keep this show very PG-13 so I just want to apologize to anyone who was listening to my behind the scenes chatter. I deeply, deeply apologize for that.”
