Tempers flared on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” after an interview with an infant went south.
Tucker Carlson wanted to discuss the efficacy of the Trump administration. Shortly into the infant’s opening remarks, Tucker cut them off.
“No, no wait. Stop. This isn’t how this is going to work. You come on my show. You speak English.”
After waiting for Carlson to finish, the infant resumed their opening statement. Much to Carlson’s displeasure. Carlson attempted to understand the infant by making that weird dumbstruck face. Unfortunately, it proved little use. Carlson’s emotions finally reached a boiling point, resulting in an outburst.
“Listen here you sick son of a bitch, I don’t know what you’re saying, and I will be damned if you expect me to look at this situation critically. I’ll make sure you are never invited back on air. You’re a moron, a fake, and incredibly threatening to my fragile sense of self.”
Tucker then muted the infant’s mic and went to a commercial break.
Update: Fox News just posted a tweet saying “The infant in question belonged to a producer on set and wandered on stage while Mr. Carlson waited for the next guest. Though Mr. Carlson has been informed of the mix up, he stands by his remarks.”
