Tucker Carlson Endorses Giuliani’s Claim That We Should Not Respect Porn Stars

Fox News host Tucker Carlson, who has bragged about bedding “hundreds” of women, decried the porn industry on Thursday for “degrading” females — while suggesting adult film actresses are not “deserving of respect.”

Carlson made the remark while justifying Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani’s highly controversial attacks on porn star Stormy Daniels, in which he said, “I’m sorry, I don’t respect a porn star the way I respect a career woman, or a woman of substance, or a woman who has great respect for herself as a woman and as a person, and isn’t going to sell her body for sexual exploitation.”

The host claimed these comments were normal, as “Rudy Giuliani [said] what’s been obvious to pretty much every living person for a couple of thousand years, that someone who is more deserving of respect if they don’t have sex with strangers on camera for money.”

In typical Carlson fashion, he went on to blame the current era (in which the president is being sued by a porn star he slept with and paid money to keep silent) on liberals. That’s because we supposedly no longer “live in a normal America, but a liberal carnival version of it instead.”

“A version in which pornography isn’t degrading, it’s dignifying and empowering to women,” Carlson added sarcastically.

He concluded by joking about how “Haiti is a beautiful country with functioning sanitation and Ms-13 gang members are great people” — since it wouldn’t be Tucker Carlson Tonight without inflating crime committed by a Hispanic gang and attacking an impoverished country Trump derisively called a “shithole.”
