Tucker Carlson latest: New texts reveal Carlson ‘hates’ Trump as McConnell, Schumer slam Fox host Jan 6

Chuck Schumer calls release of Tucker Carlson footage ‘disgraceful’ on Jan. 6

Fox News anchor Tucker Carlson told a colleague he hated Donald Trump “with a passion,” according to new bombshell messages released as part of Dominion Voting Systems’ $1.6 billion lawsuit against the network.

New court filings Tuesday revealed a text message Carlson sent to a Fox News employee just two days before the Jan. 6 Capitol riot.

“We’re pretty close to being able to ignore Trump most nights. Really looking forward to it,” she wrote.

“I hate him with a passion, I blew up at Peter Navarro today in frustration. I really like Peter. But I can’t take much more than that.”

The texts came to light on the same day that both Democratic and Republican lawmakers criticized Carlson for sharing edited footage of the Capitol riot on his show — and falsely claimed he portrayed the riots as a peaceful rally led by “tourists.” .

Senators Chuck Schumer and Mitch McConnell led the condemnation of the “disgraceful” cover-up.

Carlson offered nothing new from the January 6 tapes

Tucker Carlson spent tonight’s show attacking his critics but offering little new information, writes my colleague Andrew Feinberg in Washington DC.

Discussing the “cascade” of congressional Republicans who opposed his department last night, Carlson accused them of telling “blatant lies” and “calling for censorship.”

“They’re on the same side,” Carlson asserted. “It’s not really about left and right. It’s not about Republicans and Democrats … the people who, underneath it all, have everything in common, they’re all aligned against everybody else.”

However, there was nothing new from the January 6 tapes themselves, Andrew says, just the interview with former Capitol Police officer Tarik Khlaid Johnson that we reported earlier.
