In the wake of the arrest of Michael Avenatti for suspected felony domestic violence, the first thought that some had was oh, how Tucker Carlson would take it on his show.
Avenatti, of course, pushed questionable claims about Justice Brett Kavanaugh and has since been referred for a criminal investigation over those claims. But he was fond of pushing the “believe women” hashtag.
But after that, his next target for extending his interminable 15 minutes was Carlson.
Avenatti accused Carlson, who had nicknamed Avenatti the “creepy porn lawyer,” of assaulting a “gay Latino immigrant” at a country club. He claimed he had video of the event. But when he produced the video, it of course showed no physical assault by Tucker Carlson.
And Tucker Carlson explains what Avenatti was leaving out of the incident with the man, Juan Granados.
*Warning for graphic language*
From Daily Caller:
“Toward the end of the meal, my 19-year-old daughter went to the bathroom with a friend. On their way back through the bar, a middle aged man stopped my daughter and asked if she was sitting with Tucker Carlson,” Carlson wrote. “She answered, ‘That’s my dad,’ and pointed to me. The man responded, ‘Are you Tucker’s whore?’ He then called her a ‘fucking cunt.’”
Carlson’s son confronted Granados and threw a glass of red wine on him, and the video posted by Avenatti shows Carlson cursing at the Granados to leave the establishment.
“I love my children,” Carlson said. “It took enormous self-control not to beat the man with a chair, which is what I wanted to do. I think any father can understand the overwhelming rage and shock that I felt seeing my teenage daughter attacked by a stranger.”
Carlson said the country club investigated the incident and revoked Granados’ membership.
And the country club seemed to call out Avenatti as well.
The country club told The Washington Post that they dispute “inaccurate allegations being spread by individuals who were not present during the incident, and whose interpretation of events are refuted by the accounts of multiple eyewitnesses.”
So many wondered what Tucker would say on his show last night.
Some thought it might be a whole show of just him laughing at the karma of it all.
Carlson made a brilliant jab, making reference to Avenatti’s slogan, with a slight smile.
