Tucker Carlson said President Trump's controversial comment about the U.S. accepting immigrants from "s***hole countries" is forcing a conversation that our elected leaders don't want to have.
Tucker Carlson is the host of Tucker Carlson Tonight, weeknights at 8:00pm ET on Fox News Channel (FNC).
He joined FNC in 2009 as a contributor.
While at FNC, Carlson has provided live coverage of several political events, including immigration reform, the 2012 presidential election and the trial of former U.S. Senator John Edwards. He also produced an FNC special, "Fighting for Our Children’s Minds," in 2010.
Prior to FNC, Carlson hosted, Tucker, on MSNBC from 2005-2008 and PBS' Tucker Carlson: Unfiltered. He joined CNN in 2000 as its youngest anchor ever co-hosting The Spin Room and went on to become co-host of CNN's Crossfire until its cancellation in 2005. In 2003, he wrote an autobiography about his cable news experience titled "Politicians, Partisans and Parasites: My Adventures in Cable News."
