Tucker Carlson & Donald Trump BREAK Twitter & Trump’s Mugshot Will Again Today! RNC Debates Roasted

TheQuartering [8/25/2023]

According to TheHill:

Former President Trump’s prerecorded sit-down with ex-Fox News host Tucker Carlson was released Wednesday night as the first presidential debate in Milwaukee — which the GOP front-runner opted to skip — was set to begin.

The interview also comes on the eve of Trump surrendering himself to authorities in Georgia over the Fulton County 2020 election interference case, in which he was charged with 13 counts related to efforts to overturn the state election.

The interview will air at 8:55 p.m. Wednesday, just minutes before GOP candidates take to the debate stage in Milwaukee.

Those interested in the interview can tune into Carlson’s account on X, the platform formerly known as Twitter.

Carlson released a short video earlier Wednesday teasing his interview with the former president. Since Carlson left Fox News earlier this year, he launched an online version of his prime-time show on X.

“Whatever you think of Trump, he is the far and away indisputable front-runner in the Republican race,” Carlson said during the video. “So when Trump approached us about having a conversation for a far larger audience than he would receive on cable news, we happily accepted.”

The interview is not live, but it can be seen as an attempt by Trump to pull attention away from his primary challengers on the debate stage as well as a slight to Fox News, which is hosting the Republican debate.

Trump has had a contentious relationship with Fox News for months and said he was “surprised” in April to see Fox News take Carlson off the air.

Trump confirmed Sunday he would not be participating in the debate, largely due to his sizable lead in national polls.

For months, the former president has suggested he was likely to skip at least the first two primary debates, questioning in speeches and in posts on social media why he would attend given his comfortable lead in the polls.

Trump also said last week he would not sign the Republican National Convention (RNC) loyalty pledge — one of the three requirements candidates need to meet to qualify for the debate.
