During his Tuesday night broadcast, Tucker Carlson labeled the Jan. 6 storming of the Capitol as the second-largest hoax of his lifetime, behind only the 2020 election as the biggest scam.
The Fox News anchor was speaking with Daniel Goodwyn, self-proclaimed Proud Boy who had trespassed at the Capitol along with a mob of other Donald Trump supporters who stormed the building in an attempt to invalidate the certified results of the 2020 presidential election.
The incident resulted in the deaths of four people and injuries to over 100 police officers. Additionally, an officer who had been sprayed with an unidentified substance during the riot passed away due to a stroke the following day.
Goodwyn pleaded guilty to his participation in the protest and faced up to six months in prison. A clearly odd fellow, Goodwyn tried chewing through a mask when one was forced on him during court proceedings in 2021.
“So how can people who do care make a difference for these – and I’m just gonna say it – these political prisoners?” Carlson asked Goodwyn.
The Proud Boy responded by giving viewers a website they can visit to support Capitol rioters, adding, “There was a lot of police violence that happened that day. And yeah, that needs to be investigated.”
“Jan. 6 I think is probably second only to the 2020 election as the biggest scam in my lifetime,” Carlson responded. “And you know it is because they become completely hysterical when confronted with any facts that deviate from their lies.”
