Tucker Carlson’s inquiry for the specific remarks that precipitated his abrupt termination from Fox News remained unanswered; however, in a recent interview, he expressed his determination to pursue self-employment opportunities exclusively in the future.
During a conversation with the proprietor of Barstool Sports, Dave Portnoy, Carlson expressed gratitude to Fox for allowing him to express his opinions for fourteen years. However, he admitted that his views ultimately lead to his exclusion from the once-conservative cable news network.
According to Tucker, “One day for whatever reason they’d had enough.”
When questioned by Portnoy about his comprehension of Fox’s content restrictions, Carlson harshly criticized his former employer.
“It’s a company run by fearful women, you know what I mean? And there were always, like, second-tier people who were hassling my producers, but no one ever called me. I got along with everybody. But I think they knew like the censorship was not, I don’t welcome that, you know?” Carlson purported.
According to Carlson, his support from Fox executives decreased after he expressed his views on the Ukraine conflict.
“Our view on the war in Ukraine was really, really hated. I could feel it. And my view was not pro-Russia, never has been pro-Russia, just like, this is not our fight, it’s not good for us. We should just put an end to the war because people die in war. I’ve seen it, it’s bad. And just saying that was considered, like crazy pro-Kremlin propaganda!” Carlson claimed, waving his hands for emphasis, Carlson asserted, using hand gestures to underscore his point.
Despite the circumstances, Carlson maintains a positive outlook on what transpired.
“Being humiliated in public, being fired – I have been a couple of times – is totally good for you in the end because it keeps you from thinking you’re Jesus or getting like super crazy hubris guy,” Tucker humorously remarked.
Carlson stated that he did not intend to undermine Fox by hosting a competing program that outperformed the network’s GOP presidential debate in terms of viewership when he recently interviewed former President Donald Trump.
“The reason it was the night of the debate is because he didn’t want to do the debate. I didn’t make that decision. He approached us and said ‘I’m not going to do the debate,’ and if I’m being totally honest I didn’t really believe him.”
Trump’s unpredictability and the possibility of an abrupt change of heart prompted Carlson to express initial skepticism regarding his proclamation.
Tucker, on the other hand, speculated that Trump may have intended to provoke Fox because of their persistent efforts to convince him to appear on stage in order to increase their dwindling viewership.
“He didn’t like Fox, but they don’t like him. They never did,” Carlson explained.
Wednesday, Tucker was a guest on ‘The Adam Carollo Show.’ The focus of the interview was his interview with Trump. In addition, the conversation focused on Carlson’s departure from his former network and the future of the United States.
Tucker’s assertion that “assassination” is a possibility if the indictments against Trump do not produce favorable results for the Democrats has attracted considerable attention.
“They protested him, they called him names. He won anyway. They impeached him twice on ridiculous pretenses,” Carlson began. “They fabricated a lot about what happened on January 6th in order to impeach him again. It didn’t work. He came back, then they indicted him. It didn’t work. He became more popular. Then they indicted him three more times, and every single time his popularity rose.”
“So if you begin with criticism, then you go to protest, then you go to impeachment, now you go to indictment, and none of them work, what’s next?” Carlson inquired. “I mean, graph it out, man.”
The conservative pundit expressed a belief that the current trajectory is leading towards a political killing, “We’re speeding toward assassination, obviously, and no one will say that, but I don’t know how you can’t reach that conclusion.”
Tucker further asserted that “They have decided, permanent Washington, both parties have decided that there is something about Trump that is so threatening to him that they just can’t have him.”
Tucker added, “I mean, they are putting him on trial in March of next year in the J6 case, which basically consists of trying to send him to prison for the rest of his life for complaining about the last election. That’s basically what it is.”
The former Fox anchor added, “If this were happening in Moldova, the State Department would issue an all-hands-on-deck order to let the world know that this is not a legitimate government, and yet our government is doing it.
“It is hard to overstate how bad this is and I don’t know where it is going, but there is a collusion that is clearly imminent,” he warned.“It is hard to overstate how bad this is and I don’t know where it is going, but there is a collusion that is clearly imminent,” he warned.
