Joy Reid Declares She’s Anti-War While Explaining Her Hot-Mic F-Bomb Moment On ‘The View’

People slip up sometimes....

Just a week after MSNBC host Joy Reid dropped an F-bomb regarding President Biden’s border patrol issue, she stopped by to set the record straight with the ladies of ABC’s “The View.” 

Her microphone caught her slipping by saying, “starting another f‑‑‑in’ war” while she played clips of Biden’s speech in South Carolina in late January 2024.

Reid later apologized for the faux pas, telling her viewers they heard a conversation taking place while the clip played. “I was chatting during a clip that was playing, and you know, we try to keep this show very PG-13, so I just want to apologize to anyone listening to my ‘behind-the-scenes’ chatter,” she said. 

After being pressed by View co-host Sarah Haines, Reid channeled her religion to justify her viewpoints.

“I’m a Red Letter Christian,” she said, according to Deadline. “I don’t believe in war, whether it’s the Governor in Texas literally trying to start another Civil War over an issue that his party could solve tomorrow – there’s literally a bill that they could pass and do the border issue – or whether it’s in the Middle East.” 

According to The Hill, the United States sent out several airstrikes throughout the Middle East in response to the Jordan drone strike that killed three Black American soldiers. Reports indicated the enemy drone and a U.S. drone were entering Tower 22 airspace simultaneously, allowing the enemy drone to slip in without incident, killing 24-year-old Spc. Kennedy Sanders, 23-year-old Spc. Breonna Moffett, and 46-year-old Sgt. William Jerome Rivers, along with injuring 40 other troops.
