It is hard to overstate the danger Tucker Carlson represents to America in the era of Donald Trump. Yesterday, Carlson illustrated why he may well be the most toxic media figure in the country -- and when he's up against the likes of Sean Hannity, Alex Jones and Rush Limbaugh, that's saying something.
On Fox News Channel, Tucker Carlson was chatting with host Harris Faulkner about the high rate of obesity among the jobless. The rest of us know exactly why this is so, but Tucker flailed and parsed and flailed some more in an attempt to find an upside to being poor or out-of-work or both.
