'I am flattered': Tucker Carlson takes a dig at Jennifer Lawrence after she claimed to have 'nightmares' about him
'It really be your fault, are you really responsible, if major Hollywood starlets dream about you?' he asked before putting on a pair of black-framed spectacles
Tucker Carlson poked fun at Jennifer Lawrence's admission that he was the subject of her "nightmares" and said he could not help it if Hollywood stars dreamed about him. Lawrence, 32, expressed her sadness and anger over some of her family's support of Donald Trump in an interview with Vogue. She claimed she dreamed of Carlson as a child and had trouble accepting the politics of her Republican family from Kentucky.
The Fox News host chose to address Lawrence's claims on Tuesday. "When you decide to work in television, you lose control of a lot of things. Foremost, the way other people perceive you. So can it really be your fault, are you really responsible, if major Hollywood starlets dream about you? Maybe it's the sexy glasses," he said without showing any expression on his face after pulling out a pair of black glasses.
"Jennifer Lawrence sees you in her head at night, the nightmares when she sleeps. She is likely not watching you now, but her parents are probably watching you because they are fans," Carlson's colleague Trace Gallagher stated. He cited Carlson's accusation that Lawrence, a fervent Democrat candidate, had "Trump Derangement Syndrome" when she said that the disastrous storm season may have been "Mother Nature's retribution" over Trump's victory.
"So she has nightmares about us, nightmares," Carlson concluded. "We are flattered. Can't help it if they dream about you," he also added. In a Vogue interview, Lawrence said that her father's backing of Trump had strained their relationship. "I just worked so hard in the last five years to forgive my dad and my family and try to understand: It's different. The information they are getting is different. Their life is different. I've tried to get over it and I really can't. I can't." Lawrence explained.
Lawrence claimed that she was unable to comprehend those who had no interest in politics. She cited gun control and access to abortion as two important concerns and remarked, "I can't f*** with people who aren't political anymore. You live in the United States of America. You have to be political. It's too dire. Politics are killing people."
Lawrence, a Hillary Clinton supporter, claimed that the 2016 election left her in shock. "It breaks my heart because America had the choice between a woman and a dangerous, dangerous jar of mayonnaise. And they were like, 'Well, we can't have a woman. Let's go with the jar of mayonnaise."' she continued.
Lawrence told Vogue that she became convinced of the value of young women's access to abortion after a miscarriage she experienced in Toronto some years ago. Prior to the miscarriage, she claims she had "100%" planned to obtain an abortion, but the Roe v. Wade decision gave the matter a new level of significance for her personally and in terms of her connection with her family. "I don't want to disparage my family but I know that a lot of people are in a similar position with their families," she remarked."How could you raise a daughter from birth and believe that she doesn't deserve equality? How?"
"I broach the subject in the sense that I unleash text messages. Just: Boom. Boom. Boom. Boom. Boom. They don't respond. And then I'll feel bad and send a picture of the baby." she said, admitting that she tends to bypass this particular topic with her family.
