Did Tucker Carlson Run a Segment About Sex-Crazed Pandas? Yes, Yes He Did


On a night in which he criticized CNN for treating the breaking news of the FBI raiding Trump attorney Michael Cohen’s office like, well, breaking news, Fox News’ Tucker Carlson his program Monday night with a segment about sex-crazed pandas.

No, that is not a typo. The conservative commentator devoted the end of his show to a story on how pandas are really sex-obsessed killing machines.

“You know the official story about pandas — they’re cute but adorably helpless,” Carlson said. “Which is why they are almost extinct. But like a lot of what we hear, that is a lie.”

The Fox News host went on to cite a recent Wall Street Journal report that stated “the real panda is a secret stud with a thirst for flesh and a fearsome bite.” After explaining that pandas “could easily kill you if they felt like it,” Carlson pointed out that male pandas love sex but just hate “unsexy zoos.” But in the wild, per Tucker, males will have sex as much as 40 times in a single afternoon. (Yes, all this was really said.)

Twitter, obviously, had an absolute field day with the segment, especially considering Carlson largely avoided the big Cohen news during his show:
