WATCH: Surprising No One, Meghan McCain Slams Montana Man Who Confronted Tucker Carlson
Tucker Carlson is not a journalist, he is a entertainer. Fox News has admitted as much in lawsuits filed against the channel. Essentially, what the personality says each night doesn’t qualify as news.
Still, Carlson uses his platform on the network to push disinformation on a nightly basis. And he’s spent an awful lot of time over the last few months creating vaccine hesitancy among his viewers.
This weekend, a Montana man approached the host and called him the worst person in the world. During the Monday episode of The View, Meghan McCain slammed the man and stated that Carlson deserves his privacy.
The Conservative talking head proclaimed, “Maybe you guys thought that man was being polite. I thought he was being a total jackass and incredibly rude, and we’re living in a time when people like Steve Scalise are being shot and wounded to the point where we don’t know if he’s literally going to survive and now he has to walk with a cane because people aren’t in control of themselves and aren’t in control of their mental health and they want to take out their aggression on public figures. It was incredibly dangerous.”

Co-host Sunny Hostin did point out that just a few weeks back, Carlson was encouraging viewers to harass people who wore masks. She opined:
“You should be safe from being accosted or being confronted, and so in that sense, I agree that something like that shouldn’t happen, but when you think about Tucker Carlson, he himself has said things, like in April of this past year. This year Tucker Carlson told his audience to harass people who wear face masks outside. He also said that members of the public should report parents to police and child services if they see children wearing masks as they play. He said — he called mask-wearing repulsive and said that parents forcing their children to wear masks in public should be reported for child abuse, and he also told his viewers that it was their duty to report.”
