Fox News host Tucker Carlson can be heard engaging in a profanity-filled tirade against a Dutch historian during a recent discussion. Footage of the interview was released this week.
Carlson was speaking to Rutger Bregman after the latter’s visit to the World Economic Forum in Switzerland, where he said he wen to “speak truth to power.”
The interview spiraled out of control as Carlson ridiculed his guest as a “moron” and “fucking annoying.”
Bregman asked why the conservative host did not tackle issues related to the influence of money in politics.
“Why don’t you go fuck yourself?” Carlson asked in response.
