Tucker Carlson is the unquestioned top star on Fox News Channel.
But not everyone in the Republican Party counts themselves as a fan.
And what just happened on Trey Gowdy’s show caused this major fight with Tucker Carlson.
Texas Congressman Dan Crenshaw is seen by many as the heir to the late John McCain.
Like McCain, Crenshaw is a war hawk.
And like McCain, Crenshaw favors gun control and attacks conservatives to boost his standing with the liberal media.
The latest flashpoint came after Tucker Carlson criticized Crenshaw for Crenshaw attacking conservatives that voted against Joe Biden’s $40 billion in funding for the war in Ukraine.
Carlson and the conservatives in Congress voted against the funding because of the massive price tag – in three months the United States spent $54 billion on the war in Ukraine which is nearly equal to Russia’s entire defense budget – when Joe Biden left the southern border open and Americans suffered from a shortage of baby formula.
Carlson then slammed Crenshaw for what Crenshaw said on Trey Gowdy’s Fox News show about how anyone opposed to Joe Biden’s request for $40 billion in war funding was “pro-Russia.”
“Why is Congress so focused on Ukraine but you can’t find baby formula?” Carlson stated. “According to Congressman Dan Crenshaw of Texas, asking questions like that, or really any questions at all, thinking you are a citizen, makes you ‘pro-Russia.’”
Carlson then joked that Crenshaw was “eye patch McCain” – a nickname given to Crenshaw due to his ideological similarities to McCain.
“You know, the more I think about it, it takes a lot of gall for eyepatch McCain to attack moms who are worried about baby formula as ‘pro-Russia’.” Carlson stated.
Then – like John McCain would have – Crenshaw attacked Carlson in every media outlet he could find.
“You hurl juvenile insults when you know you’ve lost the debate. I stand by every word I said in my interview with Trey Gowdy,” Crenshaw declared in an interview with the Daily Caller.
“He’s very sensitive — sensitive when you don’t have arguments,” Crenshaw told CNN’s Manu Raj. “When you don’t have arguments, you resort to petty name-calling, which is all he’s really capable of…”
“Like, I hate Tucker Carlson. I despise him. But he didn’t cause this, right?” Crenshaw told The Hill. “Like, I think he’s a gross human being. Doesn’t mean that his rhetoric caused it. This was caused by a legitimately crazy person.”
Dan Crenshaw observes one rule – always punch right.
That is how John McCain build his brand with the corporate media.
And it looks like Dan Crenshaw is on that path.
