Every night on his show, Tucker Carlson constantly addresses the topic of race. Much of the conversation is based on the Fox host’s theory that racism doesn’t exist. Carlson has also used his massive platform to push the great replacement theory.
But according to the Fox host, the real racist is former President Barack Obama. Carlson was clearly stung by criticism levied by Obama during a recent interview with Anderson Cooper. The Fox host ripped the 44th president as a “hater” who is stoking racial division.
At one point during the Obama interview the former president said, “certain right-wing media venues, for example, that monetize and capitalize on stoking the fear and resentment of a white population that is witnessing a changing America and seeing demographic changes, and do everything they can to give people a sense that their way of life is threatened and that people are trying to take advantage of them.”
Clearly knowing that Obama was talking about him, Carlson remarked, “[Obama] spent eight years dividing the country along racial lines. But he is back to let you know if you have any problem with your kids’ teachers telling them that some races are better than others, then you, my friend, are the racist.”
The Fox host continued, “That guy is a hater. For real.”
