President Donald Trump and former Fox News star Tucker Carlson shattered records last night with their interview on Elon Musk’s platform Twitter/X.
The interview has mind-blowing 189.2 million views – so far.
To put that in the proper perspective, Super Bowl 57 between the Chiefs and Eagles had 115 Million viewers

The interview also beat Oprah Winfrey’s record-breaking interview with Michael Jackson in 1993.
Trump and Tucker now take the crown for the most-watched interview of all time, beating Oprah by a very large margin.
White House reporter Simon Ateba said:
@TuckerCarlson’s interview with @realDonaldTrump has garnered over 160 million views, making it the most-watched interview of all time.
“It surpasses the 1993 Michael Jackson and Oprah Winfrey interview, which previously held the title with an estimated 90 million viewers.”

Trump and Tucker both got even with Chris Wallace during the interview.
Wallace “protected” Biden during the 2020 election debate with Trump, according to the 45th president.
The comment caused Carlson to call Wallace a “b*tchy little man.”
“Not a friend,” Carlson said of Wallace.
“Why is it, he wants to be Mike [his father, Mike Wallace] but he doesn’t have the talent?” Trump said.
“He’s a b*tchy little man,” Carlson said.
“He wanted to be his father, but he didn’t have the talent,” Trump said.
Carlson said: “He’s a little fussy man.
“His father had talent at least.”
