I loved watching TV-dinner heir Tucker Carlson "explain" racism to attorney Monique Pressley last night. He really is a whiny little man, isn't he?

Pressley talked about the racism behind the NFL anthem controversy.

PRESSLEY: These owners have a proprietary interest in the bodies of these African-American athletes.

TUCKER: You know what, I don't know what school you went to, but don't give me that postmodern nonsense.

PRESSLEY: I went to Howard University School of Law. Before that, I went to St. Mary's University and I'm proud of it. He is saying that they should be dragged out of there for a peaceful protest.

TUCKER: Spare me.

PRESSLEY: The next time they get down on their knees in their peaceful, lawful protest, those S.O.B.s ought to be dragged out of there.

TUCKER: That is his opinion.

PRESSLEY: As the president of the united states about another citizen.

TUCKER: And some of these guys -- hold on. Can I slow you down in your speech for one second? You don't like what the president said, but I was there.

PRESSLEY: You don't like what he said, do you?

TUCKER: I agree that it is divisive and offensive to attack the flag.

PRESSLEY: Did you think that his language was divisive and offensive?

TUCKER: I think there is nothing about what he said that was explicitly racial and I think it is immoral for you and others to pretend that you know what he was thinking.

PRESSLEY: I asked if you liked it or if it was offensive.

TUCKER: It was not offensive to me to have him say you shouldn't --

PRESSLEY: I understand you weren't the S.O.B. in question.

TUCKER: Maybe he should not have done that, but the point remains, it is not a racial attack. There are white players down on one knee, as well, as you know. You are ignoring that because it doesn't bolster the divisive argument you are seeking to make.

PRESSLEY: The issue they are protesting and the majority of the ones who were doing it and the NFL in general --

TUCKER: You know nothing about that, re: the majority of players -- don't pretend to know --

PRESSLEY: I wasn't pretending. I'm saying that the players association issued a statement about what they were protesting. They represent all of the players. And then specific players such as Colin Kaepernick, who stood out first, was protesting racial injustice in this country.

TUCKER: You can disagree with how people treat the flag without being a racist. You're not allowing room for that.

Ha ha! Tucker got out-Tuckered by a WOMAN. A BLACK woman. She talked over him, flipped the arguments around, and pretty much ran over him like a Mack truck. It was a joy to see.
