MSNBC’s Joy Reid seems unpleased that the FDA has yet to approve vaccines for children as young as 6 months to four years old. On a recent show, she lamented that fact, and her guest Wajahat Ali accused another guest of being “pro-death.”

The incredible segment came during an interview on MSNBC’s “The Reid Out.”

.@WajahatAli and @Yascha_Mounk debate the fact that many Americans are calling for an end to all #pandemic restrictions, as over 2,600 Americans die daily of #COVID19 on average, while average daily cases have dropped 64% to 213,830. #reiders pic.twitter.com/qlxxlddFlP

A recent FDA statement explained that the agency has pushed back their meeting to discuss approving a two-dose vaccine for children aged 6 months to four years.

“As part of its rolling submission, the company recently notified the agency of additional findings from its ongoing clinical trial,” the FDA observed. “Based on the agency’s preliminary assessment, and to allow more time to evaluate additional data, we believe additional information regarding the ongoing evaluation of a third dose should be considered as part of our decision-making for potential authorization.”

This decision was supposed to happen by February 15 but that date has once again been pushed back.

The FDA claims this pushback “will give the agency time to consider the additional data, allowing for a transparent public discussion as part of our usual scientific and regulatory processes for COVID-19 vaccines.”

“We will provide an update on timing for the advisory committee meeting once we receive additional data on a third dose in this age group from the company’s ongoing clinical trial and have an opportunity to complete an updated evaluation,” the FDA said.

This statement did not sit well with some folks on MSNBC.

MSNBC host Joy Reid hosted guests Ali and John Hopkins professor Yascha Mounk.

Reid said, “This means that parents anxious to vaccinate their babies will have to wait until at least April to do so. The news comes as the pandemic and how to move forward means different things to different people.”

In this edition of @TheReidOut #podcast @WajahatAli & @Yascha_Mounk debate the fact that many Americans are calling for an end to all pandemic restrictions as new infections drop, yet over 2,600 Americans die daily of #COVID19 on average.

Ali sounded off. “Yeah, I’m glad we’re now in the pro-death, pro-COVID, eff them kids portion of the pandemic,” Ali said. “We started with eff grandpa and grandma, right, to get to herd immunity.”

“I just came back from New York, the gazpacho police, which are oppressing New York, things are open, by the way,” Ali said. “It wasn’t that bad. I went on the subway, I went on the Amtrak. I got a coffee.”

Ali said the vaccine must be accessible to very young children, citing his own immunocompromised five-year-old as an example:

All people are asking you to do are two things, number one, vaccinate, so you don’t go to the hospital and you don’t die. Number two, where a mask, so you don’t spread the infection. By the way, those people, like me, who traveled to the gazpacho police and came back, I have an immunosuppressed daughter who’s 5, who unlike Yascha, actually washes her hands, wears a mask, cares about people, got shots, didn’t get antibodies.

Kids under 5, I got one name Khadija. She’s 2 years old. She is not vaccinated. So she’s now — obviously, we know that she’s not vaccinated. Kids are getting long-form COVID, right? Some kids are dying.
