Tucker is out there battling Anti-Trump protestors. Tucker willfully argued in a conversation with Sunsara Taylor that had she believed Trump was like Hitler in any ways, she wouldn’t then be appearing in television shows and rather be committing acts of violence.

Tucker was sincerely asking Jillian Weiss about how to trust someone who comes out as gay the other day. He seemed to be very keen on talking against transgender people and he kept telling that they were ‘fake’.
‘I’m saying don’t give $11 billion of way to people who are faking!’ said Carlson.
Weiss also didn’t find it necessary to say that he was right. She asked him directly to show her the evidence of any transgender faking. She said that if Carlson could show and say that someone actually faked, she would sit and discuss about it.
