More audio has been released of Fox News host Tucker Carlson saying things that his network probably isn’t going to like.
According to Media Matters, Carlson used a homophobic slur when referring to his love for a radio host on Jack Radio.
Well I like you too, and I mean that. You always say ‘I mean that in a non-f*g way,’ but I actually mean it in a completely f*ggot way,” Carlson says in a recently released audio.
In an interview with MSNBC, Media Matters president Angelo Carusone explained that Carlson has a long history of offensive language and objectionable policies. He recalled the time Carlson called Michelle Obama “ghetto.”
Sunday, Media Matters released audio of Carlson defending child rape, saying he loves it when “young girls” talk about their sexual experimentation. In the recently released audio, Carlson defended child molester Warren Jeffs, who married many underage girls.
“He’s in prison for precipitation of child rape,” the radio host says to Carlson.
“Whatever the hell that means! He’s in prison because he’s weird and unpopular and has a different lifestyle that people find creepy,” said Carlson.
“He’s an accessory to a rape of children and that is a felony and a serious one at that,” the host replied.
“What do you mean an accessory? He’s got a weird religious cult where he thinks it is okay to marry underage girls but he didn’t do it,” said Carlson. “Why would the guy who did it — he should be the one doing life. I’m not defending underage marriage. At all. I just don’t think it is the same thing exactly as pulling a child from a bus stop and sexually assaulting a child. The rapist made a life long commitment to take care of the let’s be honest about.”
MSNBC host Chris Hayes said that he was most appalled by Carlson’s attack on Middle Eastern people.
“I hate the war — I’m not defending the war in any way but just have zero sympathies for them as a culture meaning Iraqis where people don’t use toilet paper or forks,” Carlson said in 2008 after about 100,000 Iraqis had been killed in a fake war. “If I didn’t like Canada I wouldn’t consider it worth I mean, Iraq is a crappy place filled with semi-literal monkeys and isn’t worth innovating.”
Carlson has refused to apologize for what he dismissed as something “naughty.” Carusone noted it seems like America is finally seeing “the real” Tucker Carlson.

Former FBI agent explains why Trump just opened himself to more legal problems
Former FBI agent Asha Rangappa explained that the recent revelations that President Donald Trump made a promise to a foreign leader that made an intelligence official uncomfortable enough to declare themselves a whistleblower.
Rangapp explained that the President has a fairly wide latitude to conduct foreign affairs as he sees fit. But "when it comes to the 'outside world,' the President represents the sovereign: He is basically the voice of the United States and can negotiate with world leaders on its behalf."
Canada’s Trudeau admits to racist ‘brownface’ makeup in high school Halloween costume
Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau apologized Wednesday for wearing brownface makeup to a party 18 years ago, as he scrambled to get on top of a fresh blow to a re-election campaign dogged by controversy.
Time magazine published the photograph one week into a federal election campaign with Trudeau's Liberal Party in a tight contest against the Conservatives led by Andrew Scheer.
Trudeau, 47, whose party won a landslide victory in 2015, has already been under attack for an ethics lapse and other controversies.
The black-and-white photograph shows Trudeau, then 29, wearing a turban and robes with his face, neck and hands darkened at a gala party in 2001.
A veteran teacher explains why Trump is incapable of learning
While dyslexia has been mentioned now and then as one of the reasons Donald Trump is so ignorant of what it takes to govern in a free society, I want to explore it as foundational to his inability to learn and grow while in office—and also as a way to link disparate troubling elements in his makeup.
