Tucker Carlson Confronts Business Owner Who Won’t Do Business with Trump Supporters

tuckerTucker Carlson tonight faced off with a business owner who publicly declared that he won’t do business with Donald Trump supporters.

Mathew Blanchfield, the CEO of 1st in SEO, wrote online, “If you are a Republican, voted for Donald Trump or support Donald Trump, in any manner, you are not welcome at 1st in SEO and we ask you to leave our firm.”

Carlson pressed him tonight on why he would say something like that. Blanchfield argued this is about the “moral principle” at hand and said he is not tolerant of bigotry or fascism.

He went on to say he strongly believes Trump is a fascist and while he would allow a Trump supporter into his home, a lot of what Trump does alarms him.

Carlson told him that comments like these diminish “actual historical crimes,” but Blanchfield told Carlson that he should read up on how Hitler and Putin rose to power.

Blanchfield said he’s well within his legal rights to make this decision. Carlson shot back that this sounds like a “moral vanity trip.”
