Ex-Fox Host Gretchen Carlson Can’t Believe The ‘Crap’ Just Spewed On Tucker Carlson’s Show

Huffington Post - Wed Jan 13 11:52

Former Fox News host Gretchen Carlson on Tuesday called out the “crap” that’s been “spewed” in recent months on Tucker Carlson’s top-rated primetime show on the conservative network.

Gretchen Carlson hit out on Twitter after Fox News analyst Brit Hume told host Tucker Carlson that Trump is now “radioactive” to the GOP after he whipped up his supporters with “utter balderdash” and lies about winning the 2020 election. 

To be clear, Trump lost the election and his lies about mass fraud are just that — lies.

“@brithume now calling out Trump for lying to the American people about the election on a show like @TuckerCarlson where all that crap was spewed for months?” wrote Gretchen Carlson, the former host of “Fox & Friends” who left the network in 2016 and then received a reported $20 million settlement over allegations that she was sexually harassed by its late CEO, Roger Ailes.

“What? This is like cover our asses now?” she added:

I can’t even read this with a straight face. @brithume now calling out Trump for lying to the American people about the election on a show like @TuckerCarlson where all that crap was spewed for months? What? This is like cover our asses now? https://t.co/XEulQ334oe

Tucker Carlson has since the election routinely sown doubt about Joe Biden’s victory. He was even forced to apologize after airing a fake news story about a dead man voting in Georgia.

His fellow primetime stars Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham have done the same.

Last month, Tucker Carlson was slammed as “truly, truly evil” after suggesting people should react “nervously” to COVID-19 vaccine.
