Fox News Host Tucker Carlson raised eyebrows when he put male feminists on blast saying that he wouldn’t allow one of his daughters to date them.
The top-rated host of “Tucker Carlson Tonight” cited well-known feminists like former President Bill Clinton and Ted Kennedy as the reason he felt feminists were ineligible to date his girls saying that “alarm bells go off pretty loud.”
The question arose while Carlson was discussing Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s blackface scandal with Stephen LeDrew.
“Would you let your daughter date some guy who called himself a feminist? No, ’cause he’s a creep! By definition!” Carlson said on Thursday’s edition of the show.
“Bill Clinton was a big feminist, so was Ted Kennedy. He killed a woman!” he added.
When asked earlier in the show if he was surprised about the Trudeau scandal, Carlson said that he was not:
“It’s like finding out that you and your super-sensitive brother-in-law, the one who tells you he’s a feminist, the one who’s always scalding you for your sexism, is, in fact, hitting on the babysitter,” Carlson said. “Of course he’s hitting on the babysitter! The virtue is always a cover for the sin. That’s the key to understanding the modern left.”
The Fox host also called Trudeau’s behavior “sanctimonious” saying that it should have been a key indicator that he was “leading a secret life as a racist.”
During his opening comments on the subject, Carlson cited Trudeau’s apology for the image, which showed him in blackface in 2001, when he said that “white privilege” was the problem.
Carlson pointed out that while it could sound like the Canadian prime minister took responsibility for his actions, he, in fact, transferred it.
“When Trudeau blames privilege, he’s moving responsibility for what he did from himself to the rest of us.
