[COMMENTARY] Tucker Carlson Mocks First Transgender Admiral By Comparing Her to a Horse

Tucker Carlson reacted to the nation’s first openly transgender four-star officer with a transphobic take on Thursday night and suggested that the Biden administration “has gone crazy.”

On Tuesday, Dr. Rachel Levine, the U.S. assistant secretary for health, was sworn in as an admiral in the U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps, which oversees the response to public health crises. Levine is the agency’s first woman four-star admiral.

Carlson employed his usual overly dramatic bent to cast a transphobic shadow over Dr. Levine’s historic appointment as if he were telling a scary campfire tale. “Behind the heavily guarded walls of the White House, everyone has gone crazy,” said Carlson. “Just this week the Biden administration declared that a biological man who wears a dress is now a female admiral. And then they sent that brave four-star female admiral out to deliver a speech that read like something out of a D-Day documentary.”

The Fox News host didn’t even bother to hide his disgust while viewing a video of Dr. Levine. “Come on,” he mocked. “They’re daring you to sit there and not say this is ridiculous. But it is, sorry. It is ridiculous. Sorry, not playing along! But they don’t think it is. And so you have to ask yourself, how long will it be before Joe Biden appoints his horse to the Supreme Court? And when he inevitably does do that, you have to ask, how long will it be until CNN informs us, ‘This is a watershed moment for equine rights. Don’t you dare laugh. That would be a hate crime.’”

But Carlson’s hate speech isn’t limited to the transgender community. Earlier this month, he claimed that openly gay Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg had taken paternity leave to “figure out how to breastfeed.”

Carlson has targeted other high-profile government officials as well. After a show where he recently tore into Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA), his fans were moved to call Swalwell’s office to leave disturbing voicemails.
