Tucker Carlson Slams Chris Christie For Declining Interview

Tucker Carlson, the co-founder of The Daily Caller, criticized Republican presidential contender Chris Christie for dodging a debate with him.

During an interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos on Sunday, Christie said that Carlson was always wrong about the conflict in Ukraine. Carlson wrote on social media that he offered Christie an opportunity to defend his beliefs, but the candidate rejected it.

Carlson speculated in a Sunday tweet that it sounded like it could be a lengthy conversation.  He requested Governor Christie to clarify his position on Ukraine, but he said no. Carlson then said that Chris Christie might be a blustering coward who plays a tough guy among ABC sycophants but won’t answer serious questions.  Carlson said that he still hoped that Christie would reconsider the offer. 

At a Blaze TV event last Friday, Carlson questioned almost all of the key 2024 Republican presidential hopefuls, including former Vice President Mike Pence, whom he pressed on his support for Ukraine despite the detention of a small number of Christian clergy by the government of President Volodymyr Zelenskyy. Carlson then made a comparison between the funding for Ukraine and the funding for America’s rising crime rate and homeless population.

According to Jordan Schachtel of The Dossier, Chris Christie personifies all the problems with contemporary politics.  He believes Christie has little chance of winning more than 5% of the vote in any election, but he should still be used as an example. New Jersey native Schachtel couldn’t pass up the opportunity to throw some shade at the “atrocious governor” who handed over control of New Jersey to Democrat Phil Murphy.

Schachtel believes that Chris Christie epitomizes the current “public health” in the United States. He also epitomizes the current corrupt politician who fails to represent his voters but rather works to siphon off their money and power. He is representative of everything that is wrong with the corrupt Washington political elite, of whom there are many like him.
