Tucker Carlson was called “the worst human being known to mankind” in a Montana fishing shop last week.
The decrier, Dan Bailey, posted a video of the incident to social media, writing, “This man has killed more people with vaccine misinformation, he has supported extreme racism, he is a fascist, and does more to rip this country apart than anyone that calls themselves an American.” In the video, Carlson is seen lightly placing his hand on the man’s chest as he spoke, saying, “I appreciate that,” laughing off the remarks and walking away.
In recent months, Carlson’s show on Fox News has skyrocketed in ratings and outpaced other mainstream outlets, like CNN. However, his controversial stances have brought just as many naysayers as supporters. For instance, Carlson once argued that the federal government’s decision to not indict certain Jan. 6th rioters suggests that these rioters were FBI agents.
He also reported on election integrity during the 2020 Presidential Election and counting errors in the Georgia run-offs, a topic few mainstream outlets brought to light. Recently, Charlie Kirk joined Carlson on Fox and shared his organization, Turning Point USA’s latest anti-vaccine mandate campaign. While Tucker Carlson is no stranger to critique, publicly confronting anyone for their views is morally questionable.
