They keep stepping up and Tucker keeps knockin’ ’em down!
The sad part for liberals is that it usually isn’t even a contest…except this time, we get a surprisingly entertaining battle and for once, both conservatives and liberals will find it worth watching.
Tucker Carlson’s chuckling may be his greatest secret weapon against rabid leftists and their teeming masses of celebrity-obsessed brain-dead supporters. In an interview on his Fox News Channel talk show, he confronted Teen Vogue writer, Lauren Duca, regarding some very offhanded and cavalier tweets about Ivanka Trump and her famous father.
Carlson began the interview with a question regarding her tweet that read:
“Ivanka Trump is poised to become the most powerful woman in the world. Don’t let her off the hook because she looks like she smells good.”
This tweet was in direct response to a media storm following her and her three young children being accosted on a JetBlue flight by a Leftist fanatic who disagreed with her father’s political positions.
When put into this context and confronted on the subject, Duca expertly and eloquently backpedaled, admitting that this was not an appropriate situation. However, it was the next quote that really got her dander up when Carlson questioned her tweet:
“Ivanka HAS IT ALL, & by that I mean, “a job, family, & sinister complicity in aiding the most aggressively anti-woman candidate of our time”.
To say that the claws came out is an understatement.
From this moment on in the interview, Duca was combative and hurled charges of misogyny in every direction. To one-up this whole volatile interaction, Carlson read from one of her pieces in Teen Vogue that accused Donald Trump’s Muslim ban of “threatening the sovereignty of an entire religion.”
When Carlson called the statement “moronic”, that was the last straw. Near the end, Duca was on fire.
And from HotAir:
The audio cuts out on Duca’s parting shot, in which she calls him a “sexist pig” for his crack about her sticking to writing about boots.
Long and short of this is that Lauren Duca writes ridiculously stilted poof pieces for a magazine dedicated to kids who care more about what Meghan McCain is using as hair bleach than what Geert Wilders is saying about Moroccans in the Netherlands. If you’re writing for Teen Vogue, please take Tucker’s advice and stick to the thigh-high boots.
And really, you didn’t do too badly up there. Next time, though, let’s not resort to the standard liberal escape route: hostility and eventually, name-calling.
