Fox’s Gretchen Carlson Has No Idea The Daily Show Is Mocking Her


At the end of her second day on the air as host of Fox’s newest show The Real Story, Gretchen Carlson took a look at some of the emails and tweets fans have been sending her way. One of those “fans” was The Daily Show’s official Twitter account, which sent out this retweet to its 1.8 million followers Monday:

If Carlson realized the joke was insulting her and her new show, she didn’t let on when she presented it onscreen Tuesday afternoon. After reading the suggestion to call the set’s “cozy chairs” “purgatory,” Carlson said, “I wonder if we’ll add that to the mix, I think.”
