Tucker Carlson Calls Him A “Coward” On National TV
(UnitedVoice.com) – Fox host Tucker Carlson slammed the top Democrat senator on Wednesday. Carlson had challenged Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) to appear on his show after Schumer accused him of influencing a mass shooter. Schumer declined the offer.
On May 17, Schumer wrote to Fox News claiming Carlson’s references to the “Great Replacement” theory had inspired Saturday’s mass shooting in Buffalo, New York, and various other atrocities. Schumer launched a rant against Carlson in the Senate the same day, repeating the same claims. He called the theory a “poison” and blamed Carlson for spreading it.
Carlson swiftly hit back, inviting Schumer to appear on his show to discuss his allegations, an invite Schumer publicly declined on Twitter.
I'm declining. Tucker Carlson needs to stop promoting the racist, dangerous ‘Replacement Theory’.
— Chuck Schumer (@SenSchumer) May 17, 2022
In response, Carlson told his audience he’d invited Schumer, but “because he is a coward, this is the only media appearance probably in history he’s turned down.”
Carlson blamed the Biden administration and its anti-COVID policies for motivating angry, alienated young people to commit mass shootings, demolishing Schumer’s claim that “the racist, dangerous ‘Replacement Theory’” was to blame. He said, “So you… lock kids out of their schools…, force them to get “educated on the internet,” but it’s someone else’s fault that they’re “alienated.” So far, Schumer hasn’t answered Carlson’s public challenge.
