NSFW: Tucker Carlson’s Profanity-Laced Meltdown During Unaired Fox News Interview

Last week, Fox News host Tucker Carlson got into a spat with one of his guests, Dutch historian Rutger Bregman over a never-aired interview recorded for “Tucker Carlson Tonight”.

The interview apparently did not go the way Carlson had envisioned, and Bregman sharing a snippet of an email he received from the right-wing talk show after their chat.

In the email, Carlson says Bregman is “far dumber, more dogmatic and less impressive than I expected,” and wraps things up by calling him an “a**hole.”

True to his word, Bregman is sharing the audio he recorded of the testy interview, in which Carlson has a full-on meltdown on him, erupting into a profanity-laced temper tantrum in which he calls Bregman “a moron” and “tiny brain.”

The reason behind Carlson’s eruption is clear after watching the interview, in which Bregman, speaking from Amsterdam, insisted that “the vast majority of Americans, for years and years now, according to the polls — including Fox News viewers and Republicans — are in favour of higher taxes on the rich. Higher inheritance taxes, higher top marginal tax rates, higher wealth taxes. It’s all really mainstream.”

Bregman then takes things a step further by calling Carlson “a millionaire funded by billionaires.”

Added Bregman: “All the anchors on Fox, they’re all millionaires. You’re not part of the solution, Mr. Carlson. You’re part of the problem.”

Eventually, Carlson can’t take it any more and goes off on Bregman: “I want to say to you, why don’t you go f**k yourself, you tiny-brained…. you’re a moron, I tried to give you a hearing, but you were too f**king annoying.”

You can watch the fireworks in the video above, with Carlson’s freak-out occurring at the 6-minute mark.

Meanwhile, Carlson shared his side of the story on Wednesday night’s “Tucker Carlson Live” — watch:
