Late-night comedian Samantha Bee blasted Fox News host Tucker Carlson as a white supremacist, despite his claims that he isn’t.
In a brutal takedown, she played the recently released audio of Carlson advocating genocide and dismissing child rape as legitimate.
“In case anyone in Tucker’s audience didn’t pick up on his subtle messages, he sometimes turns up the dog-whistle,” Bee said during her Wednesday show.
The host then played a clip of the many times Carlson has advocated “Americans” being replaced by foreigners.
“Where have I heard sweaty white men yelling about being replaced?” Bee asked. She showed a clip of the Charlottesville, Virginia neo-Nazis and white supremacists chanting “Jews will not replace us.”
“So, he’s against white supremacy but uses the catchphrase of the Charlottesville mob?” Bee asked, confused. “That’s like saying, ‘I hate the movie ‘Borat’ but you know who loves it? My wiiiiiife!”
She noted that none of the scandalous Carlson audio tapes weren’t hard to find, but her researchers did discover that Carlson’s name is an anagram of Ol’ Cracker Nuts.

“You know who else thinks Tucker is a white supremacist? White supremacists!” Bee continued, showing a clip of ex-Klan Wizard David Duke called Carlson his favorite commentator. The white supremacist site The Daily Stormer even called Carlson’s show the television version of their website. Oddly enough, in 2016, Carlson said that the KKK and Nazi Party don’t really even exist anyway.
Carlson said in an Aug. 2018 show that most people live their entire lives without even meeting a Klan member or Nazi. “I haven’t,” Carlson claimed.
“You know who can’t say that? Anyone who’s met you,” Bee said.
She got worse from there. Check it out below:
Lawrence O’Donnell throttles Donny Deutsch for saying Elizabeth Warren can’t beat Trump: ‘This is pure guesswork’
Lawrence O'Donnell and Donny Deutsch had quite the exchange in the post-debate conversation on MSNBC Wednesday.
Deutsch tried to say that Sen. Elizabeth Warren's outstanding debate performance doesn't matter because Warren can't win in a match-up against President Donald Trump.
"I do not believe Elizabeth Warren, on stage with Donald Trump, beats him," he told the MSNBC panel. "And I think if we're honest with ourselves and we look hard at ourselves, I think a lot of people agree with me. It's — and I also think when you can label somebody a socialist, 57 percent of this country thinks that word is un-American. I'm not saying it's fair. When he can blanket Elizabeth Warren as a socialist, and he's on stage with her, the Democrats lose."
Father and daughter drowning at the border fuels anger at Trump immigration policies
A shocking photograph of a Salvadoran man and his baby daughter drowned in the Rio Grande fueled a surge of emotion around the world Wednesday -- as US Democrats furiously denounced Donald Trump's immigration policies.
"Trump is responsible for these deaths," said Beto O'Rourke, one of several Democratic White House hopefuls who took to Twitter to lash out at the president.
Former vice president Joe Biden, who is also seeking the presidency in 2020, called the image "gut-wrenching."
"History will judge how we respond to the Trump administration's treatment of immigrant families & children -- we can't be silent," he said.
Senator Elizabeth Warren leads Democrats in spirited first 2020 debate
Ten Democrats clashed in the first debate of the 2020 presidential race Wednesday with Elizabeth Warren cementing her status as a top-tier candidate and several underdogs using the issue of immigration to clamor for the limelight.
The biggest American political debate since the 2016 presidential campaign is occurring over two nights in Miami, climaxing Thursday with former vice president Joe Biden squaring off against nine challengers, including number two candidate Bernie Sanders.
But Wednesday's first take was a spirited encounter between Democrats like ex-congressman Beto O'Rourke, Senator Cory Booker, former San Antonio mayor Julian Castro and New York Mayor Bill de Blasio on subjects as varied as health care, economic inequality, climate action, gun violence, Iran and immigration.
