President Donald Trump talked about former Fox News’ host Tucker Carlson on “Triggered with Donald Trump Jr.,” telling his eldest son that it was a “shame” that Carlson was out at the network.
“I think it’s a shame what happened to Tucker,” he said. “He had the number one show. He was doing great. He was very interesting. And he was out there in the sense that he was telling the truth.”
He added that “losing Tucker” was going to have “a very big impact and a very negative impact on Fox.”
On Monday, news broke that Tucker Carlson and Fox News were parting ways, much to the shock of his loyal viewers. Interestingly, former Fox News host and current commentator Megyn Kelly reported on Friday that Carlson had allegedly not yet been fired from Fox News.
Kelly stated, “I want to, I think, break some news for you. Tucker Carlson hasn’t actually been fired. He’s still an employee of Fox News channel. What happened was, Suzanne Scott called him, she’s the CEO, on Monday morning, and said he was not going to be allowed to do anymore shows and that he had been kicked out of his company email. And now they’re going to have to negotiate an exit…completely catching Tucker off guard. But Tucker’s not fired. That’s my information.”
Two days after Fox allegedly gave Carlson the boot, he posted a monologue to Twitter, elevating the importance of speaking the truth and slamming the “one party state” that America has become.
“When honest people say what’s true, calmly and without embarrassment, they become powerful,” he said. “At the same time, the liars that have been trying to silence them shrink and they become weaker….true things prevail. Where can you still find Americans saying true things? There aren’t many places left, but there are some. As long as you can hear the words, there is hope. See you soon.”
It is unclear what Tucker Carlson’s next move will be.
