Stephen Colbert Makes Withering Reproduction Request To Fox News’ Tucker Carlson

The "Late Show" host said he thought he spoke for everyone with the appeal.

Stephen Colbert dinged Tucker Carlson as he begged the Fox News host on Wednesday night not to reproduce.

The host of “The Late Show” noted how Carlson, who is actually a father of four, had previously ridiculously warned viewers that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) was trying to stop reproduction of the human race with the proposed Green New Deal.

“I think I speak for everyone when I say, ’Tucker, please don’t reproduce,” Colbert quipped during the introduction to a segment in which his team fired questions at Ocasio-Cortez.

Carlson has been embroiled in scandal this month after the resurfacing of racist, sexist, misogynistic and homophobic comments that he made on shock-jock radio program “The Bubba the Love Sponge Show.” 

In December 2018, Colbert called Carlson “a little racist who could” following his claim that immigrants make America “dirtier.”
