Tucker Carlson’s latest rant backfires when he accidentally insults Trump
Fox News' Tucker Carlson's latest rant appears to have backfired immediately due to him accidentally slamming former President Donald Trump.
The comments came during Carlson's Thursday night segment about the ongoing Russian invasion of Ukraine. At one point during the segment, Carlson, described the U.S. effort to respond to the invasion as “classic mission creep,” which according to HuffPost is a tactic where "the country extends the military’s stay for a purpose that’ll hurt America in the long term."
He went on to play a clip of former Lt. Gen. Keith Kellogg's previous remarks to Fox News' John Roberts where he suggested that the U.S. should continue its support of Ukraine.
“It really can put the Russians at threat, but we haven’t done that. And I think we should put them at threat,” said Kellogg. “Until [Vladimir Putin] really believes that we’re seriously going after him, he’s going to continue to make these threats.”
Responding to Kellogg's take, Carlson said, "anyone who had a hand in the last five wars that hurt the U.S. long-term 'should probably bow out of the conversation about the latest war.'”
He also insisted that the reason for refusing to listen to the former military official's take on helping Ukraine would be “for the same reason that you wouldn’t, say, take financial advice from someone who had gone bankrupt or go to marriage counseling with some who’s been mmm ... divorced three times because they’ve demonstrably failed in their so-called area of expertise.”
Carlson's remarks appear to be an inadvertent blow to Trump and social media users did not miss it. One Twitter user wrote, "Watching him catch himself as he's about to say 'married three times' is priceless."
"Imagine taking advice from someone who’s gone bankrupt and been married three times. Or making them president, AMIRITE," another user wrote.
Another agreed tweeting, "The moment when Tucker Carlson realizes the implications of what he’s about to say? Priceless."
