Tucker Mocked For Interviewing 80s Model Fabio on LA Being Like ‘Sodom and Gomorrah’


I urge you to take just two minutes of your time to watch the above video of Fabio — the 1980s Italian model you might recognize from the cover of your grandmother’s favorite erotic novel — explain to a perplexed Tucker Carlson how California has devolved into a lawless hell-scape akin to Sodom and Gomorrah.

“Let me tell you something about California, it looks like the wild, wild west,” Fabio informed our bewildered Fox News host. “Don’t look farther than the leaders of California: Jerry Brown, Libby [Schaaf], the mayor of Oakland.”

“The leaders of California,” Fabio explained, “they’re acting like criminals.”

Fabio went on to explain that downtown Los Angeles is in worse shape than “30 years ago in Africa.”

“Not even a third world country thirty years ago looked like California right now,” he proclaimed.

Fabio then told Tucker that even the public library in downtown Los Angeles “is like Sodom and Gomorrah” — the two Biblical cities consumed by fire and brimstone because of the sins of their inhabitants.

“It’s like sex, drugs and rock and roll,” he added.

“In a library!?” a horrified Tucker exclaimed.

“In a library,” Fabio confirmed.

Naturally, Carlson was roundly mocked for the segment on social media, with many pointing out that the interview violates one of Fox News primetime’s cardinal rules: celebrities are not allowed to talk about politics!

The interview also looks like it might be budding into a meme:
