Tucker Carlson revealed on Sunday that his daughter was subjected to name calling and harassment last month at a Virginia country club. The family was out to eat, and at the end of the meal Carlson’s 19 year old daughter was returning from the restroom when she was confronted by an angry liberal who asked who she was. “That’s my dad,” she told the man, pointing to Carlson, according to a statement by the Fox News star. The man then called her a “whore” and a “f—ing c—t,” according to Carlson’s statement. He didn’t initially want to go public with the incident, but felt he needed to when attorney Michael Avenatti claimed that it was his family that did the harassing and claimed he was getting ready for a lawsuit.
—QUOTABLE: “It took enormous self-control not to beat the man with a chair, which is what I wanted to do. I think any father can understand the overwhelming rage and shock that I felt seeing my teenage daughter attacked by a stranger.” -Carlson
Tucker Carlson’s wife was left to fend for herself after an angry mob gathered outside their D.C. home. Susie Carlson called the police when the mob began chanting and pounding on the front door. According to the police report, obtained by TMZ, the mob was using a bullhorn to chant “racist scum bag, leave town,” had painted an anarchy symbol on the driveway and posted signs on vehicles in the driveway that referenced Tucker’s Republican political affiliation. The group has been identified as an Antifa-affiliated group known as Smash Racism DC. While the Fox News host was not in the residence at the time of the incident, it is unclear if the couple’s children were in the home when it occurred.
MEANWHILE– Fox News’s top brass is denouncing the protests. CEO Suzanne Scott and president Jay Wallace called the incident “reprehensible.
—QUOTABLE: “The incident that took place at Tucker’s home last night was reprehensible. The violent threats and intimidation tactics toward him and his family are completely unacceptable.” –Statement from Fox News
