Tucker Carlson Mocks NY Times Over Kavanaugh Bar Fight Report: ‘Just Too Dumb’

Fox News host Tucker Carlson has nothing to offer but mockery and contempt for the newly-uncovered police report about Brett Kavanaugh‘s connection to a bar fight in 1985.

Carlson joined his Fox & Friends colleagues on Tuesday to react to New York Times‘ report on how Kavanaugh was questioned by the cops decades ago over an altercation where he allegedly threw ice at someone.

While this news comes amid numerous questions about Kavanaugh’s conduct and drinking habits, Carlson responded to the report with sarcastic ridicule and called it a prime example of how the media has gone wrong with covering Kavanaugh.

“If you’re the guy writing that headline…at some point a normal person would ask ‘what am I doing with my life?’ Carlson said. “‘Did I write a headline that stupid and irrelevant?’ I’m quitting, I’m gonna sell insurance because this is just too dumb.”

Carlson went on to say that the report didn’t even really qualify as journalism so much as propaganda and “[carrying] water for a political party.”

“People never pause to answer ‘what am I doing with my life?'”
