Tucker Carlson Reveals Incredibly Vulgar First Encounter With Donald Trump

In an essay for Politico, Fox News host Tucker Carlson recalls his first encounter with Donald Trump, about 15 years ago, in which the current GOP front-runner left him a vulgar message on his answering machine.


Carlson wrote that he had “said something nasty on CNN [his employer at the time] about Donald Trump’s hair. I can’t remember the context, assuming there was one[, but] in any case, Trump saw it and left a message the next day.”

That message, according to Carlson, was “it’s true you have better hair than I do, but I get more pussy than you do.”

“At the time,” Carlson wrote, “I’d never met Trump and I remember feeling amused but also surprised he’d say something like that.” Now, however, “the pattern seems entirely familiar,” as “[t]he message had all the hallmarks of a Trump attack: shocking, vulgar and indisputably true.”
