Fox News personality, Tucker Carlson, has been on a fast track to complete and total joke for some time, now.
Carlson’s sole purpose now seems to be wrapped up in his transmogrification into a dumber, more annoying version of Sean Hannity.
It shouldn’t be a competition, ladies, but… WOW.
I thought last week’s Tucker Carlson segment, asking what was so great about diversity was peak for him.
And you know, there are few things I find as annoying as labeling everything “racist” as a way of avoiding having a conversation based on facts. The perpetual victimhood of the left is one reason we have Trump, now.
That being said, Carlson and his most Trumpidian declaration of finding other cultures unsuitable to our way of life was insane.
Yes. I know. We’re used to a certain way of life, certain freedoms here. No one should come here and declare they want to change our entire culture, in order to replace it with their own. That being said, we don’t reject those who are different, here.
Carlson, and whoever was working behind the scenes with his show really went overboard on Thursday night.
On Wednesday, Michael Avenatti, the attorney for former Trump mistress, Stormy Daniels, appeared on daytime talk show, The View, where he referred to Carlson as a “pig” for his constant disparagement of Ms. Daniels.
That night, Carlson dedicated a segment to slamming Avenatti, referring to him as the “creepy porn lawyer.”
On Thursday night, Carlson had Avenatti on his program. It wasn’t to talk about issues. It was apparently classic Carlson, where he invites a guest on, under the guise of an “interview,” which then breaks down almost immediately to Carlson interrupting and being a complete jerk.
In other words, if you’re watching to learn anything outside of how ignorant and disrespectful Tucker Carlson is, you’re out of luck.
This was no different. In fact, Carlson stated at the top of the segment that they would refrain from referring to his guest by the childish nickname.
He lied, not just to Avenatti, but to his audience.
“We could sit here and hurl insults at each other,” Carlson began, before saying he wanted to take Avenatti “seriously.” In that same moment, the chyron below them changed to read “CREEPY PORN LAWYER TOYING WITH 2020 RUN.” Some version of that moniker remained on screen for the rest of their nearly 13-minute interview.
Avenatti was under the impression that he was there to talk about his client, Stormy Daniels, and the case of Trump paying her off in 2016, in order to keep their affair secret before the election.
That’s what he thought.
Instead, it was made about him. Carlson wanted to know his political stance, if he was truly going to run for the presidency (I’m going to say he won’t), and anything to keep from talking about how sleazy Donald Trump actually is.Still, kudos to Avenatti for trying to interject with some sanity.
As Carlson kept “creepy porn lawyer” on the screen, he was called out for his hypocrisy.
“Why is it that you don’t call Donald Trump the ‘creepy porn president?’” Avenatti asked Carlson at one point. “He’s the one that had sex, with a four-month-old son at home, with my client, without a condom. But you don’t want to acknowledge that!”
Were it not for Donald Trump’s adultery and immorality, we would not be talking about Stormy Daniels (or any of the other mistresses), at all.
Carlson’s best defense was to refer to the affair as “consensual.”
Ok. So Stormy Daniels had a consensual affair with a married Trump. Again, why is he not the bad guy? He had a wife and newborn at home. Isn’t that worse?
Avenatti pointed out to Carlson his own hypocrisy in disparaging his association with a porn star, while giving Trump a complete pass for having an adulterous relationship with one.
Avenatti is simply doing his job, as an attorney. Why does Trump get a pass?
It wasn’t until the final moments of the gross display that the words on the screen migrated into Carlson’s mouth. “Creepy porn lawyer, great to see you,” the host said, getting the last word and cutting to commercial.

Not only is Carlson a hypocrite, but he is a coward for how he handled this interview.
