GOP rock star Kari Lake has applauded Tucker Carlson for parting ways with Fox News, telling the network’s former star anchor that he is now “free and uncensored.”
“The best decision I ever made was leaving Fox,” she said on Twitter.
“Good for you, @TuckerCarlson. You’re free and uncensored.
“No matter what happens in the courts, during elections, on the field, at your school, or out in public, in the end, God wins.
“This much I am certain of.”

President Donald Trump weighed in on another bombshell media story, the unceremonious firing of embattled CNN host Don Lemon.
Lemon was embroiled in multiple scandals and had low ratings.
As Slay News reported earlier, Lemon was abruptly fired today.
It was not a pleasant breakup, however.
When he tried to play the victim, CNN shut him down with a rare public rebuke.
Trump said about Lemon, a man he often spared with:
“Good News: ‘The dumbest man on television,’ Don Lemon, has finally been fired from Fake News CNN.
“My only question is, WHAT TOOK THEM SO LONG?”

Fox News announced stunning Tucker’s departure in a statement:
“Fox News Media and Tucker Carlson have agreed to part ways.
“We thank him for his service to the network as a host and prior to that as a contributor.”
“Mr. Carlson’s last program was Friday April 21st.
“Fox News Tonight will air live at 8PM/ET starting this evening as an interim show helmed by rotating Fox News personalities until a new host is named.”
Multiple media reports indicated Rupert Murdoch was personally responsible for the decision to part ways with Tucker over a lawsuit by an ex-Fox News producer.
Carlson’s show was Fox News’s biggest ratings draw.
The job offers must for pouring in for the star anchor.
Don Lemon and Tucker Carlson are now without a work home — but they could land at the same place in the near future … and that might be NewsNation, which wants ’em both. https://t.co/WmqZ04V3My
