Fox News anchor Tucker Carlson called out MSNBC host Joy Reid for her lies and idiocy. Reid was caught writing a series of homophobic posts in the past. When she was called out, she claimed that she was hacked. However, there are many flaws in this story.
“There’s not a single fashionable opinion Joy Reid doesn’t have or isn’t happy to denounce you for not having. But, she wasn’t always that way,” explained Carlson. “She mocked gay people, people she thought were gay, and opposed gay marriage,” he explained.
“In order for her claims [of being hacked] to be true, which they are not, the secret hacking plot must have begun at least 12 years ago before anyone knew or cared who Joy Reid was. That’s a lie. It’s a childish lie. You would have to be a moron to believe it, yet she’s telling it,” said Carlson.
“Some have called for her to be fired for all of this. We are not among them, because we are not Joy Reid. If she could push a button and yank this show off the air forever, is there any doubt she would do that? Of course not. She would do that in a second. And she would feel virtuous as everyone who works on this show lost their jobs,” Carlson explained.
“But that’s not how we feel about this. We are not progressives, so silencing people we disagree with is not our goal and never has been our goal,” said Carlson.
