Tucker Carlson texts reveal he hates Trump “Passionately”

Cameron Joseph reporting at Vice:

Fox News host Tucker Carlson privately torched then-President Donald Trump in text messages made public on Tuesday night, saying he “passionately” hated Trump and calling Sidney Powell, Trump’s conspiracy theory-spewing election attorney, a “fucking bitch.”

“We are very, very close to being able to ignore Trump most nights,” Tucker Carlson said in a text on Jan. 4, 2021. “I truly can’t wait.”

“I hate him passionately,” Carlson continued. “What he’s good at is destroying things. He’s the undisputed world champion of that. He could easily destroy us if we play it wrong.”

Wow! I never, ever, ever, never, never, ever, ever thought I’d have anything in common with fucktard Tucker Carlson!

The texts, released as part of a massive tranche of documents from Dominion Voting Systems’ defamation suit against Fox News, are the latest to show how privately skeptical many Fox News hosts were of Trump’s increasingly wild claims that the election was stolen from him—even as some of them parroted his claims on-air. The $1.6 billion defamation case is set to go to trial in April.
