  • 937 - Nicole Hockley, co-founder and CEO of Sandy Hook Promise, slams do-nothing politicians

    Joy Reid begins this episode of The ReidOut with yet another devastating tragedy that leaves us all emotionally spent, exhausted, angry, and indescribably sad. Eighteen little kids and one of their teachers are dead in Texas, and countless more traumatized, after yet another mass shooting, this one at Robb Elementary School. The school is in Uvalde, Texas which is 85 miles west of San Antonio. Texas Governor Greg Abbott identified the shooter as an 18-year-old Uvalde resident. He added that the shooter abandoned his vehicle and entered Robb Elementary with a handgun and possibly a second firearm. Abbott added that the shooter was likely killed by responding officers, but that the events were still being investigated. Abbott, along with former president Donald Trump, and Senators John Cornyn and Ted Cruz are scheduled to speak at the National Rifle Association's 2022 annual meeting on Friday in Houston. Nationally, 134 children have been killed by gun violence this year alone. Joy Reid is joined by Nicole Hockley, co-founder and CEO of Sandy Hook Promise. She lost her 6-year-old son Dylan in the Sandy Hook Shooting.

  • 936 - Stacey Abrams, Democratic candidate for Georgia governor, on the state of Georgia politics

    Joy Reid leads this edition of The ReidOut live from Liberty Plaza in Atlanta near the Georgia State Capitol on the eve of Georgia's primary election. There are several major races many are keeping a close eye on, as Georgia was ground zero for the former president's scheme to steal the 2020 election. On Tuesday, voters will determine if Republican attempts to steal the next presidential election in a similar manner can be stopped. Polls indicate that the race for governor will likely be a rematch of 2018 between incumbent Republican Brian Kemp and Democrat Stacey Abrams. Stacey Abrams, Democratic candidate for Georgia governor, joins Joy Reid on the state of Georgia politics. Plus, the Georgia primary is also a test for the state's Democrats, some of whom are finding themselves in new, competitive districts. Meanwhile, the results of Tuesday's elections will run headlong into the state's restrictive voting laws in November. U.S. Representative Nikema Williams and LaTosha Brown, co-founder of the Black Voters Matter Fund, join Joy on these important issues. All this and more in this edition of The ReidOut on MSNBC.

  • 935 - Wife of Clarence Thomas reportedly urged Arizona GOP to send Trump electors, not Biden's

    In this episode of The ReidOut, Joy Reid discusses new reporting that Ginni Thomas, the wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, allegedly messaged Arizona Republicans in the days after the election urging them to throw out the people's votes and send Trump electors instead. Plus, we cover the archbishop of San Francisco saying on Friday that he would ban House Speaker Nancy Pelosi from receiving communion over her support for abortion rights. Additionally, Trump’s candidate in Georgia is crashing and burning with days to go to the primary, to the point that Trump himself is trying to back away as fast as he can from the dumpster fire. Joy brings you an election preview before she heads to Georgia to report live from this pivotal swing state for Monday's program. But before this, Joy begins with the apparent "age of illiberalism," a movement proclaimed by Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán that is reportedly being embraced by many right-wingers. All this and more in this edition of The ReidOut on MSNBC.

  • 934 - Jan. 6 committee requests info from GOP Rep. Loudermilk on a tour he conducted the day before Jan. 6

    Joy Reid leads this episode of The ReidOut with democracy on the ballot in November, as election deniers run for statewide office in a large number of states in 2022, jeopardizing the outcome of the next presidential election if these Republicans win many of these offices. Next, we discuss how the Jan. 6 select committee has announced a new development in their investigation with their request for information from Republican Congressman Barry Loudermilk concerning a tour he conducted the day before Jan. 6. Then, Joy slams Republicans blocking the emergency baby formula bill saying, "They would rather have the formula shortage as an election year talking point rather than doing their jobs to help solve it." Plus, we bring you reporting showing that Texas hurricane relief has been disproportionately diverted to White communities--with a lower risk of natural disasters. Finally, Chris Jones, Democratic candidate for governor of Arkansas, joins us on his plan to win. All this and more in this edition of The ReidOut on MSNBC.

  • 933 - Joy Reid explains the racist history of the "great replacement theory"

    Joy Reid leads this episode of The ReidOut with the winners and losers from Tuesday's primaries--including Madison Cawthorn whose primary loss in North Carolina caps off a season of Republican infighting over his various salacious claims. Then, we discuss how on Wednesday Finland and Sweden formally submitted applications to join NATO. Both countries are abandoning decades of neutrality in direct response to Russia's aggression in Ukraine. Joy also explains the racist history of the "great replacement theory" currently being promoted by leading, right-wing media outlets, which are influencing a significant portion of the American public with this racist propaganda. Finally, Vice News journalist Rob Ferdman joins us on his reporting uncovering new information on the officers who killed Breonna Taylor, plus an informant alleging that Louisville police officers were engaging in illegal activities. All this and more in this edition of The ReidOut on MSNBC.
