This Twitter video is short but has poor sound quality. The long youtube video of the confrontation is embedded at the end of this post. It reveals the whole confrontation, showing how a clever reporter tries to escape from Tucker’s jaws of death.
Tucker Carlson has become a huge hit for Fox News and a highly looked forward to show on Fox weeknights. Along with Judge Janine, Tucker nightly destroys the liberal narrative. Both Tuck and the Judge have become cultural icons over the last few months.
Fox News’ Tucker Carlson and Newsweek senior writer Kurt Eichenwald faced off in a heated on-air battle over reporting and President-elect Donald Trump late Thursday.
“In the last year, I’ve noticed – I think it’s fair to say – an increasingly partisan turn from you,” Carlson said on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” when prefacing his first question to Eichenwald. “Do you believe you’re practicing journalism?”
“When did you stop beating your wife?” Eichenwald retorted after heartily laughing at Carlson. “What are you talking about?”
Haha. I’ve noticed that Jews like to respond to legit questions with questions not so legit. My favorite, which I’ve used against unreasonable women, is “What’s wrong with you?” I picked that one up from Howard Stern. It worked for me.
Carlson then cited some of Eichenwald’s past tweets about Trump, including one calling the now-president-elect “stupid and lazy.”
The segment quickly morphed into both men arguing over Eichenwald’s past claims about Trump’s health and frequent tweets.
“You have a real habit of taking things out of context,” Eichenwald told Carlson during their war of words.
“My only point is that you ought to label yourself what you are, which is an advocate,” the Fox host retorted.
Eichenwald ultimately unveiled a white binder labeled “Tucker Carlson falsehoods,” which he threatened to read on-air if the television personality would not let him speak.
“This is very tiresome,” Carlson said after more bickering. “I can’t imagine negotiating with you. I would go crazy.”
“How can Fox News employ you?” Eichenwald asked after threatening to read from his binder again. “Do you really want to do this? Do you really want to play this game?”
The interview eventually ended without a resolution.
“This is performance art,” Carlson said. “I’ve never had an interview like this in my life. Nobody’s getting anything out of this.
“I’m starting to have concerns about you, Kurt,” he added before cutting off Eichenwald. “What I’m saying is I am concerned about your behavior on this show tonight.”
This youtube video captures the whole confrontation. To me it’s worth watching to observe how clever liberals try to weasel out of taking responsibility for their toxic stew of smears.
