Tucker Carlson calls people who seek admiration in the AmericaFest speech weird

Tucker Carlson has said politicians are “strange” because they “crave” the admiration of strangers.

The Fox News personality said during a speech at Turning Point USA’s AmericaFest, a four-day event running through December 20 in Phoenix, Arizona, that the group is calling “the greatest celebration of our constitutional rights and freedoms.” .

“I don’t believe in any politician, I know them too well,” Carlson said Saturday.

“I just do not know. I mean I think some are way better than others. Some are just plain awful. And some are, you know, nice people. I know I’m friends with two of them after a lifetime of covering them.”

Carlson continued, “No, they’re weird. I mean seriously. You live with people you’ve never met before screaming your name. What kind of an idiot are you?

“When you crave the admiration of strangers, you’re emotionally damaged, you know, beyond repair.”

Some on Twitter mocked Carlson’s comments, saying they lacked confidence.

A Twitter user wrote: “This would have far more weight and impact if Tucky himself were not, in his own words, ’emotionally damaged and damaged beyond repair’.”

“Is he talking about himself?” Another asked.

“Pot, meet kettle,” one Twitter user wrote. Other added: “Irony, your name is Tucker Carlson.”

Others suggested that Carlson’s comments indicated he was turning his back on former President Donald Trump.

“And with that, Tucker Carlson announces his support of Ron DeSantis,” one user wrote.

However, Carlson said Saturday that he currently does not endorse anyone in the 2024 presidential race.

“I don’t support anyone. I have no idea what’s going to happen in the Republican primary,” he replied when asked if he would support Trump or Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis.

Trump announced he would be running for a second term in November 2024, while DeSantis was widely touted as a top contender for the 2024 GOP nomination.

“I spend a lot of time in Florida and I think Ron DeSantis did an incredible job and I mean it,” Carlson said.

“I don’t know DeSantis that well, but let me put it this way, people are moving to Florida because he’s the governor.”

Floridians say they “love” DeSantis, Carlson said. “I’m so impressed with it,” he added.

Carlson said he was “so grateful” that Trump ran for president in 2016 and that talking to him was “one of life’s great animal pleasures.”

“I actually love Donald Trump as a man,” he said. “I’ve known Trump for 20 years because I work in the media, you know, and I’ve just always gotten along with him and I think he’s one of the funniest people I’ve ever spoken to in my life.”

Carlson went on to say that it appears Trump and DeSantis are “two forces moving towards each other at high speed.”

“And how can that go well?” He asked. “And the answer is, I have no idea.”

news week has reached out to a spokesman for Carlson for comment.
