Tucker Carlson calls Jen Psaki 'little Fascist' for 'censoring' comment on Joe Rogan's podcast
Tucker Carlson took a dig on at White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki on Wednesday, February 2 show in separate segments, calling her “little fascist”, “spokeschick” and “honey”.
The Fox News host in his opening segment gave a long monologue defending Joe Rogan against critics who made accusations about him spreading misinformation about Covid-19 and the vaccine. Tucker Carlson played a clip of Psaki speaking on Tuesday, February 1 at White House press briefing. Carlson defended Joe Rogan's podcast which was highly slammed for spreading misinformation. Psaki herself addressed it and said "there's more that can be done" against misinformation. This triggered Carlson.
“There's more that can be done?” Carlson reacted, incredulously. “Hey, you little fascist, that’s a threat. That’s exactly what it is. Politicians and their spokeschicks didn’t use to talk this way. They were not allowed to talk this way because the First Amendment explicitly prohibits it. You’re not allowed to use government power to shut down broadcasters who criticize you, period. And now that’s exactly what they’re trying to do.”
“So, obviously, that’s completely ignorant because she’s completely ignorant,” Carlson said. He further added, “Go back to Oberlin, honey.” In the show later, Carlson took a shot on Psaki again, for accusing Republican politicians of “parroting Russian talking points” with respect to Russia’s possible invasion of Ukraine.

The exclusive rights of Spotify are owned by 'The Joe Rogan Experience' and the company will now place a disclaimer on the show. Rogan also posted an Instagram video in which he said he agrees with the decision of the streaming app. Carlson also recently attacked Republicans for pushing for a stronger response to Moscow’s aggression and slammed Sen Joni Ernst (R-Iowa) as “ignorant” and Sen Jim Risch (R-Idaho) as “a moron masquerading as a senator” and “pompous neocon buffoon”.
The prime time Fox News host and others on the far-right have excused and even rationalized Russia’s aggression toward Ukraine and moderated its significance to United States national security. White House press secretary Jen Psaki appeared on Fox News one day after Biden's first solo press conference of 2022.
