Joy Reid published a scathing read by Tucker Carlson after the Fox News host referred to her as “the racing lady.”
The MSNBC presenter attended her show The ReidOut on Tuesday to respond to Carlson, who repeatedly referred to her as “the racing lady” and announced her Harvard background, among other things, reports Huff Post.
“Oh, honey, honey. Tuckums. Is it really about me getting fixated on the race or is it about you getting fixated on the race? “
While playing a montage of clips in which Carlson claimed that Reid used race to bait people despite having “lived an unusually privileged life,” Reid blew up his term “race lady” as a dog whistle to anger his viewers. She also accused the conservative news anchor of “making America worse,” reports the Daily Beast.
“At least three times in the past month, Tucker Carlson took time out harassing strangers in parks and inflatables, demanding that they show him the exposed faces of their children to refer to Moi as the ‘racing lady’!” Said Reid. ‘The Race Lady’? Why did he call me that? I ran in high school, but honestly, I’m not that fast. What else could it be? Hmm “
She went on to list some of “Lil’Tucker’s” past mistakes, including his MSNBC show, which was canceled to be humiliated on CNN during an interview with Jon Stewart in 2004. This was in response to Carlson repeatedly addressing her Harvard degree.
“I mean, when you recently beat me up for jogging after the vaccine while jogging in crowded Central Park, you strangely threw me into attending Harvard. And I don’t know, maybe I’m sensitive to this stuff, but it felt like a dog whistle, ”she said.
While delving into Carlson’s possible assumption that she had come to Harvard for “positive action,” she attributed to her college education for having “really high GPA and fantastic SAT scores.”
“But you’re alright! The thoughts will be great for you, ”she continued. “And for that racing thing, I’m not the one rewinding my neighborhood changing like I’m a segregationist housewife from the 1950s! That would be you, Tuckums! “
With the new newscaster’s argument rooted in the mask debate, it’s safe to say that Reid’s response won’t be the end of their on-air feud.
