Tucker Carlson Rips ‘Brittle, Middle-Aged Woman’ Stephen Colbert for Not Finding QAnon Shaman ‘Hilarious’
Tucker Carlson ripped CBS’ Stephen Colbert as not a comedian, but a partisan “Karen” who is paid to act on behalf of Democrats Tuesday.
One of Carlson’s biggest gripes was the host was able to mine no humor out of hooligans who stormed the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6.
Conservatives have pounced since a number of Late Show staffers were arrested at the U.S. Capitol after police said they were there unlawfully.
Colbert responded to some of the critiques on his show Monday night.
“I am shocked I have to explain the difference, but an insurrection involves disrupting the lawful actions of Congress and howling for the blood of elected leaders, all to prevent the peaceful transfer of power,” Colbert said.
Regarding the detainment of Robert Smigel, who is best known as the voice of Triumph the Insult Comic Dog, the host said, “This was first-degree puppetry.”
