Media Matters of America has uncovered a shocking conversation of Fox News host Tucker Carlson. In it, Carlson was caught saying several controversial things that might cause him problems with the network’s already complicated image.
Carlson, who was brought on to Fox News in 2009, attacked women in droves. He blasted Martha Stewart’s daughter Alexis as “c*nty” and Britney Spears and Paris Hilton “the biggest white whores in America.” He blasted Huffington Post founder Arianna Huffington a “pig” and noted women love being told “to be quiet and kind of do what you’re told.”
The worst, however, came when Carlson spoke about having sex with young girls.
He claimed underage marriage is not “the same thing exactly as pulling a child from a bus stop and sexually assaulting that child. … The rapist, in this case, has made a lifelong commitment to live and take care of the person, so it is a little different.”
Fox News has been fighting off accusations of sexual harassment that took down Roger Ailes and Bill O’Reilly.

LISTEN: Charlamagne Tha God clashes with ‘delusional’ Rush Limbaugh in debate over George Floyd’s killing and white privilege
During an interview with Rush Limbaugh this Monday, Charlamagne Tha God called out the conservative radio host for his white privilege and asked him why he's choosing to speak out on George Floyd's killing while there have been countless examples of police violence against black people.
“I know that you’re going to disagree with me on this — to me this is not America,” Limbaugh said, adding that he thinks the U.S. is the greatest country in the world.
But according to Charlamagne, America is only great for some people.
“I think it’s easy for you to say because you’re a white male and that comes with a different level of privilege,” Charlamagne said. “And I do think America does work but it works for the people it was designed to work for. It doesn’t work for everyone else the way it works for you.”

Canada’s Trudeau rejects inviting Russia to G7 summit
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Monday rejected Russia's participation in a coming summit of the G7 nations, despite host US President Donald Trump wanting to invite Moscow.
"Russia was excluded from the G7 after it invaded Crimea a number of years ago," Trudeau told reporters.
"Its continued disrespect and flaunting of international rules and norms is why it remains outside of the G7 and will continue to remain out," he added.
On Saturday Trump said he would postpone the planned June summit of leaders from the United States, Germany, Britain, Canada, France, Italy and Japan after German Chancellor Angela Merkel said she would not be coming, citing the coronavirus pandemic.
