[WATCH/COMMENTARY] ‘Thirsty’ Swalwell Stalker Tucker Carlson Is the ‘Worst Human Being’
No one is even trying to pretend anymore that Tucker Carlson is anything but a paid agitator for the Trump faithful. Carlson is drunk on his own power-tinged Kool-Aid, and he wrongly believes he is untouchable because money and ratings matter more to him and Rupert Murdoch than human lives. Whining from his literal bully pulpit on Fox News, Carlson has sent his anti-vaxxer minions after children who wear masks in public while instilling deep mistrust in the COVID-19 vaccines that even Dear Leader, Sean Hannity, and the panel of “Fox & Friends” have admitted to receiving, encouraging others to get theirs immediately as well.
Why Carlson has decided to go the very dangerous (and expensive, as advertisers have been quietly dropping him) anti-vax route as the GOP needs their voters very much alive for the 2022 midterms is a mystery, unless it’s just all part of the latest story arc he’s playing out.
At least Carlson seems to be losing the ability to scare off anyone on the left just because he’ll whine over anyone who disagrees with him. He’s already tried it and failed with Rep. Eric Swalwell, who posted a text exchange where he defended his pregnant wife against the very persistent Fox shill. And in an act of true patriotism, a man named Dan Bailey was achieving Legend status on Twitter on Saturday after a video of him confronting Carlson in Montana started going viral.

Carlson, who rants against the “elite”, was on vacation to do a little fly-fishing and dropped into a sporting goods store to probably buy everything someone needs to go fly-fishing because he threw it all into the river out of frustration when it didn’t go well last time. Bailey spotted the somewhat sentient bowl of leftover rice pudding and let him know exactly how he felt about him. “You are the worst human being known to mankind. I want you to know that,” Bailey tells Carlson.

Of course, Carlson is a coward when he’s not on a camera that’s broadcasting him on Fox, so he refused to engage with Bailey, who made eye contact and calmly told Captain Swanson Frozen Foods exactly what he thought about him. Bailey wrote alongside his Instagram video: “It’s not everyday you get to tell someone they are the worst person in the world and really mean it! What an asshole! This man has killed more people with vaccine misinformation, he has supported extreme racism, he is a fascist and does more to rip this country apart than anyone that calls themselves an American. #fucktuckercarlson #stayoutofmontana #democracywillprevail #trumplost”
Holy shit. Watching the Montana Man tell Tucker Carlson to fuck off, is my new favorite pastime.

This is a thing of beauty that should be preserved for future generations. We can only envy how gratifying it must have felt, but for right now, Dan Bailey of Montana is all of us. Respect, Dan! Watch the glory, below.
