MSNBCMSNBC host Joy Reid hit back at Tucker Carlson on Monday night after the Fox News star repeatedly called her a ‘lady of the race’ in recent weeks, denouncing Carlson’s past failures and controversies while claiming that the conservative host “made America worse.” Last week, after Reid announced on air that she still wears a mask despite being fully vaccinated, Carlson devoted an entire segment to making fun of her. “Well Joy-Ann Reid, the running lady at MSNBC, took a short break yesterday after haranguing Whitey for revealing something deeply personal about herself on TV,” he scoffed. a habit lately of referring to the black host as the “pedigree woman”, evoking her upbringing at Harvard and insisting that she has lived “an exceptionally privileged life”. Reid, who recently called Carlson a “male Karen” for urging viewers to call the cops on children with masks, began his fiery destruction of Carlson by referring to this moment. “At least three times in the past month, Tucker Carlson has taken time off from harassing strangers in parks and bouncy houses to demand that they show him the unmasked faces of their children to refer to me as the ‘lady of the race ”! Said Reid. “‘The lady of the race’? Why did he call me like that? I used to run on track in high school but honestly I’m not that fast. What else could it be?
