Tucker Carlson isn’t exactly known for his inclusive worldview.
After slamming attempts to promote diversity, trying to argue women shouldn’t make more money than men and calling a guest a “f*cking moron”, you’d think we have a pretty good grasp on how his mind works.
Well, we got a deeper look into his thoughts over the weekend when Media Matters for America shared recorded audio of Carlson defending a child rapist, speaking very derogatorily about immigrants and generally being the exact kind of Tucker Carlson we’d imagine calling into a radio show to share his worldview.
The most recent audio clip gathered by Media Matters and released by NowThis News shows Carlson’s own views on underage women.
The clip displays Carlson talking to “Bubba the Love Sponge” in a radio call about the possibility of sleeping with a contestant in the Miss Teen USA contest.

Bubba and Carlson were talking about the 2007 Miss Teen USA pageant, where Caitlin Upton, Miss South Carolina Teen USA, gave an answer to a question which had the internet and media commentators mocking her.
“She’s like, she’s vulnerable. She’s like a wounded gazelle, separated from the herd.
“She’d probably be a pretty good wife. Don’t you think- I mean if you had a wife that dumb, would it be good or bad?”
The audio file has elicited reactions of rage and disgust toward an already despicable man.
Can we, as humanity, agree that this is toxic masculinity baseline? However far you are from this, the less-toxic your masculinity? https://t.co/VUgdWj9vOu

The video continues with Carlson making a very lewd prediction that the show’s host, Mario Lopez, slept with the contestant with absolutely no credible evidence as to why.
It’s an absolutely disgusting recording.
