Tucker Carlson Fires Back at Chris Christie, Lands Knockout Blow: ‘Blustery Coward Who Plays the Tough Guy with Sycophants at ABC’

Tucker Carlson fired back at GOP presidential candidate Chris Christie after the former New Jersey governor went on ABC with George Stephanopoulos and trashed the ex-Fox News star.

As Slay News reported, Carlson shredded Mike Pence last week over the former vice president’s neocon talking points on Ukraine.

Appearing on Stephanopoulos’ show, Christie pushed back against Carlson’s argument that the federal government should focus on the American people, rather than perpetuating an endless foreign war.

Christie said: “I would have said that, ‘You’ve always been wrong on this Tucker, and you’re still wrong.’

“That in fact what’s going on George is that this is a proxy war with China.

“The Chinese are funding the Russian war by buying Russian oil.

“They are coordinating with the Iranians to provide lethal weapons to the Russian army.

“And we can decide when to have this conflict.

“Right now, the Ukrainians are willing to fight this fight for themselves if they have our support to be able to win it.

“If the Chinese watch us back away from Ukraine as Tucker Carlson and others would advocate, believe me, the next move will be Taiwan.”

Stephanopoulos said: “He was getting standing ovations you don’t think that’s a big sell on the Republican party?”

Christie said: “I don’t.

“And I tell ya as I travel around George, look I’m not saying there’s not some division in the party there is that’s obvious.

“But I still absolutely believe, both from what I’ve seen in polling and what I’m experiencing anecdotally that a majority of Republicans want us to be supporting Ukraine.

“Because those folks are fighting for their own freedom, their own liberty and they’re degrading the Russian army and sending a message to the Chinese.

“Those are all good things for America.”


After seeing the video of Christie’s comments, Carlson dropped the hammer.

“Sounds like this could use a longer conversation,” Carlson said.

“We just asked @GovChristie to sit down and explain his views on Ukraine.

“He refused,” Tucker revealed.

“You hate to think that Chris Christie is a blustery coward who plays the tough guy with sycophants at ABC but won’t answer real questions, but who knows?

“We hope he reconsiders.”
