Fox News chose not to air the interview below with Dutch historian Rutger Bregman after host Tucker Carlson lost his temper, calling his guest a ‘tiny brain…moron’ during the interview and telling him, “Go fuck yourself!”
“You are a millionaire funded by billionaires, that’s what you are,” Bregman said. “And I’m glad you now finally jumped the bandwagon of people like Bernie Sanders and AOC, but you’re not part of the solution, Mr. Carlson. You’re part of the problem, actually.”
“You’re all like, ‘Oh, I’m against the globalist elite, blah, blah, blah,'” Bregman says. “It’s not very convincing, to be honest.”
“Why don’t you go fuck yourself,” Carlson responds. “You tiny-brain—and I hope this gets picked up, because you’re a moron! I tried to give you a hearing, but you were too fucking annoying.”
Carlson apologized but also defended his response on his Fox News show Wednesday night.
“Things went fine for the first few minutes and then Bregman launched into an attack on Fox News. It’s not clear that Bregman has ever seen Fox, but he wanted to make his point. Fine.”
“But then he claimed that my corporate masters tell me what to say on the show and that was too much. Whatever my faults of those of this channel, nobody in management has ever told us what positions to take on the air.”
“So I did what I try hard never to do on this show and I was rude.” “On the other hand it was genuine and heartfelt. I meant it with total sincerity.”
