The day after The New York Instances‘ Ben Smith reported that Fox Information’ Tucker Carlson is secretly “a fantastic supply” for unflattering tales about Donald Trump, an inexpensive particular person would count on Tucker to, you understand, say one thing to disclaim (as a result of let’s get actual, he gained’t verify this) the story. He didn’t accomplish that, which is definitely in step with his usually evasive techniques as displayed in Smith’s personal article (he requested Tucker the still-pressing query of whether or not he’d been vaccinated, and the Fox Information host deflected with a query about Smith’s intercourse life).
What did Tucker discuss as an alternative? He took goal at CNN host Don Lemon following a Washington Submit journal profile interview, through which Lemon promotes his ebook, This Is the Hearth: What I Say to My Buddies About Racism. In all equity, the publication did make clear that Lemon lives in Sag Harbor, N.Y., however Tucker took that ball and ran with it, declaring the next whereas claiming that Lemon truly doesn’t care about variety. Carlson detailed how Lemon’s house is value “$4.Three million” and lives in a neighborhood that “is simply 3% African-American.” He then added, “When he didn’t inform The Washington Submit is that in his free time he runs away from variety.”
That wasn’t all. Carlson zeroed in on a photograph that was apparently taken inside Lemon’s kitchen and accused the CNN host of getting a “white supremacist QAnon cookie jar.”
There’s quite a bit occurring on this phase, equivalent to Tucker accusing Don Lemon of getting a “white supremacist QAnon cookie jar,” however what stands out is Tucker telling his viewers the place Lemon lives.

Issues obtained bizarre, quick. “You won’t at all times see it, however like Russian spies, white supremacists come in the dead of night of evening, in essentially the most stunning kind,” Carlson warned. “They’re shapeshifters. Now, we’re not calling anybody a white supremacist right here, however it’s a must to ask your self… what is that this image of hate posing as a cookie jar, doing in Don Lemon’s kitchen?”
Carlson continued: “Do you see that? That proper there, women and gents, is a white supremacist, QAnon, cookie jar.” He didn’t clarify why he felt that this cookie jar was linked to the QAnon conspiracy however went on to name it “a blackface cookie jar” and declared that “it’s time to mirror.” And Don Lemon has but to touch upon the topic.
