Tucker Carlson messed with the wrong person.
The Fox News host was blasted by Teen Vogue writer Lauren Duca on his show Friday, after challenging her over her tweets about Ivanka Trump. It did not go well for Carlson, who ended his segment with an egregiously sexist remark after the interview devolved.
Carlson started by firing shots at Duca for tweeting that Ivanka Trump has “sinister complicity in aiding the most aggressively anti-woman candidate of our time.” Duca stood by her statement and parried his attacks by calling him out for interrupting.
“You’re shouting over me every time I speak. It’s incredibly unprofessional,” she said. “You’re actually being a partisan hack who’s just attacking me ad nauseam and not even allowing me to speak.”
Carlson moved to personal attacks, grinning and guffawing as he pointed to Duca’s other entertainment stories in an apparent attempt to devalue her as a political pundit. He didn’t win that battle either, and cut off his segment with the last word: “You should stick to the thigh-high boots. You’re better at that.”
The interview went viral over the weekend, with celebrities and pundits from across the board praising Duca for standing up to Carlson.
Duca, a former reporter with The Huffington Post, doubled down on her disdain for Donald Trump and Carlson this week. She says she spent the weekend fielding rape threats because of the interview.
At least someone is balancing out the hate by sending Duca pictures of their dog:
