WATCH: CNN’s Jim Acosta Says Tucker Carlson Hates America
Tucker Carlson hasn’t had it easy since Donald Trump lost the election in 2020. Facing competition from both Newsmax and OAN, the Fox host has become increasingly conspiracy minded.
And the change in Carlson’s behavior hasn’t skipped the minds of his network opponents. Jim Acosta took the Fox News host on Saturday night, noting that the Conservative host, “hates America.”
Acosta began, “This week, Fox News personality Tucker Carlson took a break from spreading his usual propaganda here for a week-long field trip to Hungary, where he spread it there, especially fawning over the country’s far-right leader, Prime Minister Victor Orbán, who calls his system of government an illiberal democracy. As you know, the Soviet Union used to use gullible foreigners to spread propaganda, but this seems different. Tucker knows what he’s doing.”
The CNN host continued, “It’s very concerning and I wonder where he’s going next. Maybe to Moscow to do an infomercial for Vladimir Putin. I guess we’ll have to wait and see.”
