Tucker Carlson refuses to apologize for past comments about women, statutory rape

Tucker Carlson host of"Tucker Carlson Tonight" poses for

Laura Keiter, a communications director for Media Matters, said in a statement to TheWrap: "Anyone remotely familiar with Tucker Carlson won't be surprised by the misogyny". Instead, he invited anyone who disagrees with his views as expressed these days on TV to come challenge him on Tucker Carlson Tonight.

"If you're talking to a feminist, and she's giving you, 'Well, men really need to be more sensitive, ' [say] no". "Does it give you pause going on his show knowing that he said this?" He also said that women enjoy being told to "be quiet and kind of do what you're told" and that they are "extremely primitive".

He also made this gross comment about his own daughter, after the show hosts spoke about sexual experimentations at boarding school: "If it weren't my daughter I would love that scenario". Over the years, Carlson defended statutory rape, called rape shield laws "unfair" and said child marriage isn't the same as sexually assaulting a child because the adult "made a lifelong commitment to live and take care of the person".

Media Matters has even more horrific quotes on their website.

Jeffs, Carlson said, was someone with "a different lifestyle that people find creepy".

Fox News' top anchor Tucker Carlson is refusing to apologize for offensive remarks that appear to support sex with underaged children, and disturbingly misogynistic comments about women, including Hillary Clinton, Arianna Huffington, Paris Hilton, Britney Spears, and Alexis Stewart, the daughter of Martha Stewart.

CARLSON: What do you mean an accessory? He's not in prison for polygamy, he's in prison for child rape. He is accused of facilitating the marriage between a 16 year old girl and a 27 year old man.

"I love women, but they're extremely primitive, they're basic, they're not that hard to understand".

"It's disgusting! I think the religion is ridiculous, I think it's a cult, I think it's totally immoral".

The unearthed recordings (which contain explicit language) reveal Mr Carlson calling into a controversial show known as Bubba the Love Sponge.

Jeffs, it should be noted, was on the FBI's Ten Most Wanted list. But what's striking about these clips is that it comes off as so natural and normal for him; it's like you're getting a chance to see who Tucker Carlson really is and what those ideas really mean.

"Look, just to make it absolutely clear".

Mr Carlson was hired by Fox News in 2009 and has presented an eponymous daily evening talk show since 2016.

Fox News has yet to release an official statement addressing the matter.
