In an interview, Tucker Carlson admitted: “I lie.”
Fox News hosts spoke to Dave Rubin. YouTube hosts and the conservative author asked how Carlson liked CNN hosts Brian Stelter, Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon, whom Rubin called “clown people.”
Carlson said: “I guess I would ask myself, I mean I’m lying if I’m really in the corner or something. I lie. I really try not to. I never try to be on TV. I just do not – I do not like to lie. I’m really doing it, you know, out of weakness or whatever.
“But to systematically lie like that without asking yourself why am I doing this? So if these people ask themselves, “Why am I doing this?” And they say, ‘Well, I want to protect the system because I really believe in the system.’
Carlson, who once worked for CNN, accused CNN anchors of “lying to defend Jeff Bezos … treating Bill Gates as a kind of moral leader” and putting “your boot on the neck of the weakest people.”
Carlson said he had also “put pictures on the screen to hurt weak people” but only “unintentionally”, and always tried to “strike up”, in order to hurt those more powerful than him.
“People who strike down are the worst,” he said. “They should have no power whatsoever, in my opinion.”
Eric Feigl-Ding, an epidemiologist and senior fellow at the Federation of American Scientists, has sa Carlson’s advocates for those who buy fake vaccination cards represent “criminal public danger” and will “get people killed, including children.”
In the midst of an increase in cases caused by the contagious Delta virus variant, the vast majority of hospitalizations and deaths in the United States are among the unvaccinated. IN THE U.S, more than 660,000 people has died of covid-19.
On Monday night, Carlson also read aloud a tweet by Nicki Minaj.
The rapper has said that she is not vaccinated but intends to examine the shot and has said that people should get it.
But Minaj also claimed on Monday that a “cousin in Trinidad” would not get the shot because his friend did and “became impotent. His testicles became swollen” and his fiancée left him.
Carlson read the tweet in the air and said, “Seems sensible.”
