MSNBC pinned Joy Reid during “The ReidOut” on Monday, accusing Fox News host Tucker Carlson of injecting “racist conspiracy theory” into the veins of Republican voters.

Discussing the substitution theory, Reid said, “Not a single voice in the right-wing media has done more to glorify this racist conspiracy theory than Tucker, who, even with a new lead author, spends every night injecting rot from the sludge of the internet directly into the veins of Republican voters.

He continued, “The writers of Tucker are getting their show from 4Chan? These are just questions. As The New York Times analysis found last month in more than 400 episodes, Tuckums reinforced the idea that a gang of elites wanted to force demographic change through immigration. This is the theory of substitution.”

Reid added, “The truth is, Tucker isn’t a deep thinker. He’s clearly channeling nasty stuff his audience can easily find online, then feeding them as infotainment to Republican voters and Republican politicians, and that feedback loop has a horrible reach. Buffalo’ “That murderous bastard in the movie wouldn’t even have to listen to Tucker. If they’re essentially getting it from the same source material, he doesn’t have to watch it to get it.”
