Tucker Carlson invited Alex Mohajer, a Huffington Post contributor who says that Hillary Clinton is the “legitimate president.” In his piece published over the weekend, Mohajer wrote,
“Hillary Clinton is the rightful president-elect of the United States.”
Mohajer pointed to Clinton’s win in the popular vote, Russian meddling in the election, President-elect Donald Trump’s alleged ties to Moscow, and FBI Director James Comey’s public comments on the bureau’s investigation into Clinton’s emails.
“Calling for judicial intervention and a new election, no matter how outlandish or uncharted, is our civic duty,” Mohajer concluded in the piece.
Tucker said Mohajer is alleging things – like collusion between Trump and Comey – that he has no way of knowing.
“The idea that people take a crackpot like you – who would throw something out there with no evidence – is distressing,” Carlson said. “And shame on the Huffington Post for printing your garbage.”
Mohajer said that Tucker isn’t actually listening to his argument because he’s too focused on “partisan squabbling.”
“You ran a partisan group during the election!” Tucker fired back. You’re a Democratic political operative!”
The conversation went back and forth for a while with Mohajer making ever more wild claims to which Tucker finally responded by cutting him off and ending the interview calling the writer a “Democratic political operative,” and
“Shame on Huffington Post for printing your garbage.”
