Tucker Carlson to Take Megyn Kelly's Spot - Internet Responds Hilariously
The news first bubbled up from the Drudge swamp that smug, sexist, microphone-cutter Tucker Carlson will assume Megyn Kelly's primetime slot on Fox News now that she is taking her generally racist views to NBC. Fox News later confirmed the Carlson rumor with some breathless, canned quotes from chairman Rupert Murdoch about how Carlson has "taken cable news by storm with his spirited interviews!!!"
Some Twitter users were a little less excited. "Not much of an upgrade," some reacted, amidst other racist and sexist so-called "alt-right" celebrants. Martha MacCallum will reportedly anchor Carlson's old 7pm show in a broadcast reportedly titled, "The First 100 Days."
No word on what comes after that. Maybe "The Second Hundred Days."
Here are some choice Twitter reactions to the news.
Tucker Carlson for Megyn Kelly? When America downgrades to stupid, so does @FoxNews. Now they have a complete set! https://t.co/T7M9GgGd1t— Mrs. Betty Bowers (@Mrs. Betty Bowers) 1483632683.0
I hope Roger Ailes makes Tucker Carlson wear the tight dresses like Megyn Kelly. He'd be awful purdy.— ᗪIᗩᑎE (@ᗪIᗩᑎE) 1483634465.0
Do we have any reliable evidence that "Tucker Carlson" isn't actually Don's eldest son son Tucker Trump?— Josh Marshall (@Josh Marshall) 1483122183.0
