Tucker Carlson Secretly Hates Donald Trump 

“I hate him passionately.” That is exactly how Fox News network’s star host, Tucker Carlson, really feels about former president Donald Trump. 

Thanks to a new court filing in the massive $1.6 billion defamation lawsuit against Fox News, this has become public knowledge. 

Two days before the violent Jan. 6, 2021 insurrection at the Capitol, he was sending private texts to members of his staff about how much despised Trump. 

Around the same time, Carlson was publicly singing Trump’s praises to his audience of millions. 

That text was not a one-off. 

The court documents are full of juicy little examples of Carlson bashing Trump. 

During the 2020 presidential election, Carlson told his producer that Trump was a terrible businessman. 

“All of [his businesses] fail,” he texted. “What he’s good at is destroying things. He’s the undisputed world champion of that.” 

In another text, sent the day after the Capitol riots, Carlson described Trump as a “demonic force, a destroyer.” 

And in another text, he called Trump’s presidency a “disaster.”

“We are very, very close to being able to ignore Trump most nights,” Carlson said in a text on January 4, 2021, two days before the riot. “I truly can’t wait.”

Meanwhile, Carlson is doing just the same as ever before: not displaying his real convictions and continuing to screw the GOP mantras on television. 

Even as the filings were reported on Tuesday, Carlson continued to broadcast January 6 security footage in his attempt to cast the deadly attack on Congress as “peaceful chaos” arising from a protest of Trump’s defeat by Joe Biden.

Many observers think the Dominion suit, over the broadcast of lies about electoral fraud by Trump and his allies, could prove seriously costly to Fox News.

Hosts and executives up to and including Rupert Murdoch have been shown to have said Trump was lying, and to have ridiculed surrogates including Rudy Giuliani and Sidney Powell but to have broadcast their claims regardless.
