Tucker Carlson cooks up totally insane new Trump conspiracy theory


Former Fox News host Tucker Carlson floated a wild conspiracy theory during a podcast appearance claiming that “they” were trying to kill Donald Trump.

“We’re obviously headed for an assassination and nobody’s going to say that,” he told Adam Carolla. “I don’t know how you can’t come to that conclusion.”

Carlson claimed that the “permanent Washington” — which is “bipartisan” — wants the former president out of the picture entirely.

He said “they” had already tried to protest against him, berate him, charge him twice and charge him four times.

“And every time his popularity increased,” Carlson claimed, although polls showed Trump’s popularity rating has remained stable in the upper 30s and low 40s since leaving office. according to FiveThirtyEight.

Carlson said none of those efforts compelled Trump to leave.

“What’s next?” he asked. “I mean, you know, think about it graphically, man!”

Carlson’s Fox News show was known for its toxic mix of far-right conspiracy theories, racism, xenophobia and white nationalism.

It was also the network’s number one show.

Fox News parted ways with Carlson just days after the company agreed to pay Dominion Voting Systems $787.5 million to settle a defamation lawsuit.

During his time at the network, Carlson was notoriously fawning on Trump, and just last week posted a fawning interview with the former president on X, formerly known as Twitter.

Behind the scenes, however, he had a very different point of view.

“I hate him passionately,” he wrote in a Jan. 4, 2021 text message, saying he “can’t wait” until he can ignore Trump.
