During a recent segment, MSNBC host Joy Reid blasted Republicans angry at “woke” changes being made by corporations.
“Here is Mrs. Potato Head. Does she matter in your life?” Reid asked” Is this what’s important to you that she is able to be a girl Mrs. Potato Head. This is what they’re talking about. Charlie, this is more important to them than health care.”
“It seems ridiculous for me to be sitting here on a prime time television news show with a Mrs. Potato Head next to me,” she continued. “This is what they’re doing on the right. This is the equivalent of what Republican governance has become. Hanging around with a potato, and making sure the potato is a girl or a boy. Because God made potato and potato, not potato and pawtato. That’s the Republican platform.”
