Megyn Kelly Torches ‘Idiot’ Joy Reid Over Interview Defending Pornography In Schools

Sirius XM radio host Megyn Kelly laid into MSNBC host Joy Reid over a Friday evening interview that aired on “The Reidout.”

During the interview in question, Reid repeatedly attempted to attack Moms for Liberty co-founder Tiffany Justice — and in doing so, she found herself defending pornographic materials in schools and in the hands of children.


Reid began the segment by complaining about some books — particularly some with explicit LGBTQ+ themes — being “banned,” but Justice pushed back immediately, noting that there was no actual ban in effect.

“No one is banning books. Write the book, print the book, publish the book put the book in the public library, sell the book, right? We’re talking about a public school library,” she said, saying that it wasn’t a ban so much as a move to ensure that inappropriate materials would not end up in the hands of young children.

Reid continued down the same path, however, complaining that conservatives were advocating book bans without knowing what was actually in the books or by taking certain key words from those books “out of context” in order to make them sound offensive.

“In what context is a strap-on dildo acceptable for public schools? Tell me what the context around a strap-on dildo or the rape of a minor child by a teacher?” Justice asked in response.

Justice was not alone in her assessment of the book Reid mentioned — “All Boys Aren’t Blue.” Senator John Kennedy (R-LA) read an excerpt of the book aloud on the Senate floor during a hearing last September, prompting an awkward response from Illinois Secretary of State Alexi Giannoulias.

“Those words are disturbing coming from your mouth,” Giannoulias said to Kennedy — but he said nothing about the fact that Illinois allows children access to those same “disturbing” words.

Reid went on to argue that Moms for Liberty should not have the right to “ban” such books, saying that stories like the one in question might allow an LGBTQ child to “feel seen.” Instead, she asserted that the parents of those children should have the right to demand that their children have access to them.

The argument continued, and Justice suggested that perhaps the more explicit books should be kept where younger students would not stumble across them by accident.

“Maybe we can just put all the books with all the graphic sexual content — the dildos, the raping …” she began, but Reid interrupted.


“I’m so sorry, excuse me, excuse me, excuse me! I have seen tapes of what Moms For Liberty does, and you all go into school board meetings and you read graphic stuff,” Reid complained, suggesting that parents drawing attention to the graphic content was more egregious than the content itself.

“Joy, this is a disingenuous conversation,” Justice shot back. “America used to understand that there’s a thing called age-appropriate content.”

Kelly’s response to the entire exchange — and Reid’s position in particular — was simple: “This idiot actually wanted to know what ‘expertise’ [Justice] has to object to minors in school reading about strap-on dildos & incestual pedophilia.”
