The news is out: [During his Monday night show, Tucker Carlson briefly addressed a staffer who resigned Friday after CNN unearthed his racist and sexist remarks. But while he said he and the show do not “endorse” the staffer’s remarks, Carlson saved his strongest words for the “ghouls” who he said were “beating their chests in triumph at the destruction of a young man.”
“Self-righteousness also has its costs,” Carlson said. “We are all human. When we pretend we are holy, we are lying. When we pose as blameless in order to hurt other people, were are committing the gravest sin of all, and we will be punished for it.”
Carlson said at the end of the show that he would be leaving on a “long-planned” vacation to go “trout fishing.”
CNN unearthed the posts, which were written by Blake Neff on a blog popular with law students. Over the course of five years and as recently as this month, Neff had used racist language and derided women.
Neff joined “Tucker Carlson Tonight” in 2017 after working at the conservative website The Daily Caller, which was founded by Carlson.
According to CNN, Carlson had praised Neff as a “wonderful writer” in the past and credited him in the acknowledgments of his book.
Neff resigned on Friday. In a memo to employees on Saturday, Fox News executives called Neff’s posts “horrendous and deeply offensive,” according to The New York Times.
Carlson said “we do not endorse” Neff’s words and said “they have no connection to the show.”]
Tucker Carlson is one of the approved racist maggots who can spew their bile in public, under the guise of the 1st Amendment’s freedom of speech. The same is afforded to Trump to make stupid statements.
