MSNBC host Joy Reid issued an apology to viewers following a hot mic incident that inadvertently broadcast her off-camera profanity regarding President Joe Biden during Monday night's episode of "The Reid Out."
After introducing a clip of Biden addressing the border dispute with Congress, Reid was overheard exclaiming, "Starting another f***ing war!" The comment seemed to be a reaction to the news that Biden is contemplating retaliatory measures in the Middle East following Sunday's fatal drone attack on a U.S. troop base in Jordan, resulting in the deaths of three Army reservists from Georgia and numerous soldiers sustaining injuries.
While Reid later apologized for the use of profanity, she did not retract her criticism of Biden's potential actions. The incident highlights the challenges of live broadcasting and the unintended consequences of unguarded moments behind the scenes.
