Fox News host Tucker Carlson began his program Wednesday night by taking aim at Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg for criticizing Vice President Mike Pence on the campaign trail, only for his guest to take that opportunity to call Islam the “most hateful, intolerant religion on Earth.”
During his opening monologue, Carlson portrayed the South Bend, Indiana, mayor as engaging in a “fake feud” with Pence, the former Indiana governor, solely to portray himself as a victim because of his homosexuality. (The vice president is known for his embrace of anti-LGBT policies, both as veep and governor.) The Fox News host, meanwhile, contrasted Buttigieg’s criticisms of Pence with the vice president saying kind words about the mayor.
After ending his monologue by suggesting Buttigieg isn’t truly Christian because he supports “late-term abortion and attacking people who have been kind to him,” the Fox host welcomed conservative journalist and frequent guest Chadwick Moore. Asked how Buttigieg could be seen as a victim since he “went to Harvard and is a Rhodes scholar,” Moore invoked Brunei’s law of punishing homosexuality with death.
