Joy Reid gathered faux news host Tucker Carlson this past Monday night on “The Reid Out.” The MSNBC journalist was responding to Carlson’s constant dog whistles and repeatedly calling her “The Race Lady.”
“Personally, I prefer my news and information to be grounded in reality, rather than monetizing my amygdala to keep me on edge and buying MyPillows and gold,” she began.
Reid said that she wasn’t quite sure where he got the word “race” from, noting that she did run track in high school.
“Hmmmmm,” she pondered before showing a clip of him mocking her degree from Harvard and saying that Reid was “haranguing whitey,” all day.
“Did he say ‘whitey?!’ Oh, honey, honey. Tuckums. Is this really about me fixating on race, or is it about you fixating on race?” asked Reid.
As soon as she said Tuckems, you knew she was about to go in on his a**, and we were here for it.
“Did you want to go to Harvard? Did they reject you? And you think, ‘oh yeah, they let the race lady in, ugh, affirmative action, ugh!’ Let me cheer you up, okay? I got into Harvard, and okay, Yale, Vassar and the University of Denver too because I had a really high GPA and fantastic S.A.T. Scores, and that’s how affirmative action works, love,” she exclaimed.
The glorious a**-whoopin’ continued as she noted that schools diversified so they wouldn’t be as dry as the major sports leagues were before they were desegregated.
“See, just because, ya know, maybe you didn’t have great grades and great test scores and needed your girlfriend’s daddy to help you get into college, doesn’t mean that you don’t have amazing people in your life who love you. I mean, you got all that Swanson money, right? Fish sticks for everybody, woo!,” she said.
The MSNBC anchor didn’t stop spreading the joy there. She continued to drag him when she called out Carlson for his racist television show.
“I’m not one who spools out over my neighborhood changing like I’m some segregationist housewife from the 1950s. That would be you, Tuckums. And I’m not the one spouting a conspiracy theory that white people are going to be replaced by a Democratic Party conspiracy to import non-white people to outnumber them, a theory that was also spouted by the Charlottesville tiki-torch Nazis. That would also be you,” she said.
Reid also eviscerated Carlson by calling him “Little Tucker,” speaking on his failure to get accepted by the CIA and his canceled show at MSNBC.
“Fishsticks for everybody.”
