Former top-ranked Fox News host Tucker Carlson was extremely concerned about left-wingers and liberals working on Judge Jeanine Pirro’s program, according to newly leaked video footage.
In a leaked clip obtained by left-wing outlet Media Matters, Carlson is seen on the set of Tucker Carlson Tonight engaging in a conversation with Justin Wells, his executive producer. During the discussion, Carlson expresses his concerns about liberals working at Fox and suggests that individuals who include their pronouns in their Twitter biographies should not be hired by the company.
Carlson also addressed the alleged presence of a hardcore liberal as the executive producer for Fox News host Jeanine Pirro’s show. He expressed concern that this individual may have “d*cked* over Pirro’s work and potentially harbored intentions to undermine both Pirro and the network.
“I talked to her at great length. It was actually pretty funny,” Carlson noted in the leaked clip. “I was like, she’s got a lot of liberals working over there. And, you know, they see this as war and we’re the main force on the other side.”
“That’s crazy,” he added. “If you’ve got pronouns in your Twitter bio, you shouldn’t work here because we can’t trust you because you’re on the other side.”
Carlson goes on to say that he refused to “name names” about who “did it,” saying further, “Just because you’re liberal doesn’t mean you did this. It does mean you shouldn’t work here. And Roger would never put up with this sh*t.”
Later, he identified one of the purported liberals within Fox as “Judge Jeanine [Pirro]’s guy,” who he said was “horrible” and “a screaming left-wing lunatic.”
