Jon Stewart Adds Fuel to the Twitter Fire Already Roasting Tucker Carlson

Tucker Carlson always seems to be having some kind of public meltdown over some manufactured outrage, because he’s paid to whine for a living. But Carlson went too far on his Fox News show Wednesday night when he mocked President Joe Biden’s comments regarding the new uniforms the US military has created to fit women more properly, including the creation of maternity flight suits for those who are pregnant; the military also updated their requirements for hairstyles. The idea of women being braver than he is–which isn’t saying a lot–was just too much for the Swanson Frozen Foods heir who has never served in any of the armed forces.

“So we’ve got new hairstyles and maternity flight suits,” Carlson snarked. “Pregnant women are going to fight our wars. It’s a mockery of the US military.”

Carlson’s comments have prompted a severe backlash from some of the most senior members of the US military who took to Twitter on Wednesday and Thursday to call Carlson out for what they described as harmful and divisive rhetoric. Speaking to reporters Thursday, Pentagon spokesperson John Kirby said the Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin shared the same “revulsion” that many military leaders have expressed about the comments Carlson made.

Someone who has always supported the military is former “Daily Show” host Jon Stewart, who quietly joined Twitter in January and reminded everyone on Thursday that he once owned Carlson on his former show in the most glorious way.

Just in case you might have forgotten, here’s a clip of that historic interview.

 

But Alyssa Milano may have one-upped even Stewart by summing up just how you solve a problem like Tucker Swanson Carlson.
