Reid took on Carlson for calling her ‘the lady of the race’ in a segment of ‘The Reid Out’ and viewers can’t forget that she called him ‘Tuckums’.
Joy-Anne Reid had strong words for Fox News presenter Tucker Carlson, as she referred to him as ‘Tuckums’ in a segment on ‘The Reid Out’. The hilarious segment went viral on social media, with many celebrating Reid as a hero.
The segment aired on Monday, May 3, when Reid faced off against Carlson, who has always referred to the MSNBC host as ‘the lady of the race’. The latest case came last week, when Carlson hit Reid, who said on air that she still wears a mask despite being fully vaccinated. Carlson also studied Reid’s education at Harvard and stated that she lived an exceptionally privileged life.

In response to these attacks, Reid called Carlson a ‘male Karen’ on his show in late April, but otherwise refrained from attacking the host. That all changed on May 3, when Reid launched a long and furious attack on Carlson. ‘At least three times in the past month, Tucker Carlson has taken a break from pestering strangers in parks and bouncy houses …to moi like ‘the lady of the races’!’ Reid said. ”The lady of the race’? Why did he call me that? I used to run in high school but honestly I’m not that fast. what else could it be? Hmm.’
She then did a montage of the Carlon show, after which Reid said, ‘Oh honey! Tuckums! Is it really about my fixation on race or is it about you fixating on race? She continues to attack Carlson on a variety of topics, from her support for the ‘Grand Theory of Substitution’ to the recent controversy surrounding her college yearbook. She ends by saying that Carlson ‘makes America worse’.
