”That’s right Tucker, you’ve earned it,“ the host says
Acosta added that it wasn’t just Carlson’s digs at Harris that set him apart from the rest.
“You’ve spent the last year peddling vaccine conspiracy theories about Bill Gates, you’ve served as a mouthpiece for white supremacists who embrace the ‘Great Replacement’ theory,” Acosta said. “You spread the false flag conspiracy theory that Trump supporters were not responsible for the insurrection on January 6, only to contradict yourself days later.”
Acosta then touched on Carlson’s “latest lowlight”: his upcoming documentary, filmed by a crew that was following Kyle Rittenhouse through his trial that ended Friday with acquittal on murder charges.
“What makes this so shameful is that you were filming this latest piece of one-sided, right-wing propaganda while Fox was slamming other media outlets for their coverage of the trial.”
Acosta also took a swipe at Sen. Ted Cruz during the segment, prompting the Texas Senator to fire back on Twitter, calling Acosta a clown.
Representatives for Fox News did not immediately respond to TheWrap’s request for comment.
