Conservative commentator Ann Coulter has seemingly raised issues regarding Tucker Carlson being a potential vice presidential running mate with Donald Trump in the 2024 elections via Newsweek.
Carlson, once among Fox New’s biggest stars and ratings draws, abruptly parted ways with the outlet in late April for reasons that still remain unclear. However, Carlson has since taken to X, formerly Twitter, to continue his political commentary, often speaking on major political issues.
Meanwhile, Trump, the frontrunner for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination, said in early November that he would consider Carlson as his running mate if he became the GOP’s 2024 nominee. Since then, a growing group of Make America Great Again (MAGA) supporters have voiced their approval on social media.
However, in an episode of Coulter’s podcast in which she interviewed New York Times reporter Jeremy Peters in early November, they discussed the Fox News and Dominion Voting Systems lawsuit, which alleges the network promoted lies claiming its equipment switched votes from Trump to President Joe Biden in the 2020 presidential election.
Coulter went on to ask Peters what Carlson’s feelings towards Trump were in regards to the Dominion discovery, which made public legal documents that revealed a text conversation between the former Fox host and an unnamed person where Carlson said that he hated Trump “passionately” and was looking forward to no longer having to talk about him on air.
“Early on you heard Tucker basically saying things like, and these are verbatim quotes, that is he is a demonic force, a destroyer and that he is ultimately responsible for the deaths that happened on January 6. We know that Tucker, like many people at Fox expressed a deep disdain for Trump and disrespect for him. The discovery showed how little they thought of this man,” Peters said.
