Jon Stewart Mocks ‘S**thead’ Tucker Carlson Over Ridiculous Putin Defense

Jon Stewart torched Fox News personality Tucker Carlson as a “dishonest propagandist” for, among other things, his questionable commentary on the Ukraine crisis.

“There’s nothing you can take out of context” with people like Carlson “because none of it is real,” comedian Stewart said on the latest episode of New York Times reporter Kara Swisher’s “Sway” podcast released Thursday.

“You know, he’s admitted when he’s cornered, he lies. It’s all a game and a performance,” Stewart continued about Carlson. “I mean, honestly, I have no idea what the fuck that guy believes, truly.”

Since Russia’s invasion, Carlson has toned down his pro-Russia rhetoric and admitted he was wrong to downplay the crisis — but snidely blamed Vice President Kamala Harris for his error.

Swisher suggested Carlson had given Putin a pass because he hadn’t done anything personal to him. “Well, he did not take your parking space, Jon. That’s what it read like to me,” she said.

Stewart later questioned why Fox founder Rupert Murdoch was “trying to destroy the fabric of this country.”

“I don’t know if it’s ideological or he just thinks, this is where the money is,” he said. “But how somebody can in good conscience put a shithead like that on television every night to say those types of things? That’s where the responsibility lies in my mind.”
