The latest tranche of leaked text messages from Fox News has revealed that Tucker Carlson hates Donald Trump passionately, despite constantly praising Trump on his nightly news program. The messages, which were sent on January 4th, 2021, right before the Trump riots, were revealed in connection with the Dominion Voting Systems lawsuit for defamation against Fox News. In the messages, Carlson expresses his frustration with Trump and says he cannot handle much more of it. He also talks with Laura Ingraham about the decline in ratings at Fox News after the election and expresses anger at the news side of Fox for calling the election for Biden. The leaked messages have exposed many different layers of the right-wing media and the MAGA movement in the United States. It’s also further evidence that Tucker Carlson is really just playing a character on his TV show and it’s impossible to know what he genuinely does and doesn’t believe.
