Tucker Carlson Goes Nuclear on Chris Cuomo, Calls Him the “Dumbest Person Ever” on Cable

During his primetime show on Tuesday, Fox News host Tucker Carlson unleashed on CNN host Chris Cuomo, calling him the “dumbest person ever” on cable television.

The comments from Carlson came in response to comments made by Cuomo about the crisis along the southern border where Border Patrol agents are forced to use horses to get Haitian migrants back across the river into Mexico.

“To me, who’s never read a book in my life, it smacks of a bygone era,” Carlson said while mocking Cuomo. “It is slavery to ride a horse through a crowd of people trying to invade our country.”


“That guy went to Yale Law School, in case you’re wondering if the system is legitimate,” Carlson added. “Chris Cuomo really gets the credit he deserves for being the single dumbest person ever to perform on cable news, he makes Don Lemon look like a particle physicist.”

TUCKER CARLSON, FOX NEWS HOST: These people are such liars, especially that guy [Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer]. So here you have Chuck Schumer claiming that there are quote, ‘images of Haitian migrants being hit with whips.’ Well, that’s a distressing claim. Really? Where are these images? We checked and we couldn’t find a single picture like that. Instead, we saw border patrol officers using their reins to control their horses. Horses have reins, reins are not whips. Though, if you live in Dupont Circle, it’s possible you wouldn’t know the difference.

NBC NEWS REPORER: We saw that image of at least one border patrol agent using a whip and was effectively trying to lasso some of the migrants.

JOY REID, MSNBC HOST: I was not aware that whips, which come from the slave era, slavery era, were part of the package that we issue to any sort of law enforcement or government sanctioned personnel.

BRIANNA KEILAR, CNN HOST: Disturbing new video and images taken at the U.S.-Mexico border that appear to show law enforcement officers on horseback using aggressive tactics to confront migrants.



YAMICHE ALCINDOR: What they’re, what they’re seeing is despicable, disgusting, cruel. Those are the words that I’ve been hearing from activists that I’ve been talking to.

CHRIS CUOMO, CNN HOST: As an image, to me it does smack of a bygone era of slavery.

CARLSON: To me, who’s never read a book in my life, it smacks of a bygone era. It is slavery to ride a horse through a crowd of people trying to invade our country. That guy went to Yale Law School, in case you’re wondering if the system is legitimate. Answer? No. Chris Cuomo really gets the credit he deserves for being the single dumbest person ever to perform on cable news, he makes Don Lemon look like a particle physicist. But the Biden ministration is nothing if not attentive to CNN, they write the script. So here’s the DHS Secretary once again accusing his own officers of quote weaponizing their horses.
