“The ReidOut” host began by noting how she doesn’t often spend time watching the conservative network. “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 explained.

“Oh, honey, honey. Tuckums. Is this really about me fixating on race, or is it about you fixating on race?” she asked.
Carlson was like “some segregationist housewife from the 1950s,” said Reid, slamming him for “spouting a conspiracy theory that white people are going to be replaced via a Democratic Party conspiracy to import non-white people to outnumber them” and sowing doubt about COVID-19 vaccines.
“People like you and your friends at the BS factory are keeping us steeped in COVID sickness and rage and paranoia,” Reid added.
