Former Fox News host Tucker Carlson has had more leaked video surface that sees him taking aim at a fellow host.
It was another clip published by the left wing news organization Media Matters that showed Carlson on the set of his “Tucker Carlson Tonight” show as he talked with his executive producer Justin Wells about a talk he had with a female executive at the network. He said he had concerns that there were liberals working at Fox News as he noticed they had pronouns in their Twitter biographies.
He also was furious about his colleague Jeanine Pirro who he said had a hardcore liberal as her executive producer.
“I talked to her at great length. It was actually pretty funny,” the former Fox News host said. “I was like, she’s got a lot of liberals working over there. And, you know, they see this as war and we’re the main force on the other side.”
“That’s crazy,” he said. “If you’ve got pronouns in your Twitter bio, you shouldn’t work here because we can’t trust you because you’re on the other side.”
“And she goes, ‘Well, who?’ And I said I’m not going to name names because I don’t know who did it. And I’m definitely not going to cast aspersions on someone unfairly. Just because you’re liberal doesn’t mean you did this. It does mean you shouldn’t work here. And Roger would never put up with this sh*t. Why would you do that?” he said.
“Did you know what I mean? They see this as war,” the host said.
“But do you know what I mean, Justin? If you’ve got like that, that horrible guy who was just horrible, who was Judge Jeanine [Pirro]’s guy. I couldn’t. Yeah, that guy’s like a screaming left-wing lunatic. Why does he work here? What? He totally dicked over his anchor, and then we expect he’s not going to dick over the network. Like, I don’t have specific information on it, but I would. It’s just. Yeah, it’s crazy. Yeah, exactly. Exactly. It’s like I’m always telling people. I’m telling my children like, you know what the truth is? You can feel it. Don’t lie to yourself,” he said.
He was apparently referring to Pirro’s former executive producer Jerry Andrews.

Media personality Megyn Kelly praised former top-rated host Tucker Carlson this week for announcing his next move since being ousted by Fox News.
During a segment on her SiriusXM “The Megyn Kelly Show,” she spoke about Carlson announcing would be bringing his show to Twitter after “parting ways” with Fox News on April 24.
“I’m delighted to see what he’s doing. I’m delighted that he’s going to go out with his own show. Tucker decided to give Fox News a dose of its own medicine. ‘You want to fight? You got one,’ is essentially what he said,” Kelly said.
She also spoke about Carlson’s lawyer, Bryan Freedman, reportedly sending a letter to Fox News that alleged executives at the network, including “Rupert Murdoch himself,” intentionally broke promises made to Carlson “with reckless disregard for the truth.”
Kelly said she would “love to see a fight” between Carlson and Fox News.
“Do not predict Fox News will win,” Kelly said. “And even if they did win, how do they win their viewers back? That’s the real question. Well, the only fight is about whether they’re trying to silence their favorite host. Right? How does that happen? I want to watch it happen. Love to see it happen.”
Kelly predicted Fox News will settle with Carlson quickly, saying, “It doesn’t take this to an arbitrator. They’re not going to take this to a court, but that’s what Tucker is threatening.”
