Tucker Carlson Admits He 'Passionately' Hates Donald Trump In Private Text Message To Colleague, Court Filing Reveals
Despite Tucker Carlson constantly praising Donald Trump, it seems like the former had some intense things to say about the businessman behind closed doors.
In a legal filing that was made public on Tuesday, March 7, Carlson texted a colleague: "We are very, very close to being able to ignore Trump most nights. I truly can't wait."
"I hate him passionately," he added, The Washington Post reported.
The text exchange happened on January 4, 2021 — two days before Trump supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol as they attempted President Joe Biden from becoming president.
"We're all pretending we've got a lot to show for it, because admitting what a disaster it's been is too tough to digest. But come on. There really isn't an upside to Trump," the TV personality, 53, said in another exchange.
Dominion Voting Systems, which sells electronic voting equipment which was used in the 2020 election, is suing Fox News and Fox Corporation as they claim that "executives at all levels of Fox … knowingly opened Fox's airwaves to false conspiracy theories about Dominion."

"Thanks Paul. Wake-up call for Hannity, who has been privately disgusted by Trump for weeks, but was scared to lose viewers," Rupert replied, referring to Sean Hannity.
Ryan said Fox's hosts, including Hannity, Tucker Carlson and Laura Ingraham, should attempt to "put down the echoes of falsehood from our side."
"I truly hope our contributors, along with Tucker, Laura, and Sean get that and execute," Ryan stated of the anchors.
Of course, Trump fired back at the drama.
“Why is Rupert Murdoch throwing his anchors under the table, which also happens to be killing his case and infuriating his viewers, who will again be leaving in droves – they already are,” he wrote on Truth Social on Tuesday, February 28. “There is MASSIVE evidence of voter fraud & irregularities in the 2020 Presidential Election.”
“Just look at the documentary '2000 MULES' and you will see large scale ballot stuffing caught on government cameras, or votes cast without Legislatures approval, or just recently, the FBI/Twitter Files Scandal,” he continued. “RIGGED!!!”
