Much of today’s conversation returns to The New York Times’ new expose on Tucker Carlson which reveals Tucker Carlson was abandoned by his mother at the age of eight because she hated him. According to the Times, Tucker’s mom fed him amphetamines, alcohol and marijuana while he was still in grade school. According to The New York Times, Carlson’s mother moved to France when Tucker was eight and he never saw her again. After Tucker’s mom died she reportedly left him exactly one dollar in her will. Topics: Hitler wasn’t Jewish; Putin’s Wagner Group and why he needs to DeNazify Russia; Can Nina Turner win today?; Supreme Court about to overturn Roe; Amazon Labor Union loses in Staten Island; Dennis Prager is a lying ignorant bigot #TuckerCarlson #Roe #DennisPrager
