Fox’s Tucker Carlson calls white supremacy ‘a hoax’

NEW YORK >> Fox News host Tucker Carlson is under fire for his comments declaring white supremacy a hoax.

Carlson said on his prime-time show on Tuesday that he’d never met anybody who considered white supremacy to be a good idea. He made his remarks a day before President Donald Trump visited El Paso, Texas, where a white gunman who had written an anti-Hispanic rant killed 22 people over the weekend.

The Anti-Defamation League says that Carlson is using his platform to push out prejudice and doesn’t deserve a spot on a major news network.

There was no immediate response today from Fox News Channel.
