Tucker Carlson insulted the women of a whole city on July 13th, in the process of defending Senator David Vitter. According to Tucker, one out of three women in New Orleans resturants are for sale.
In the process of defending David Vitter’s right to keep his seat in the U.S. Senate, Carlson took a swipe at one third of the women who work, dine or drink in New Orleans restaurants.
“Ever since his number turned up in the phone records of a D.C. escort service, Louisiana Senator David Vitter has been missing in action. The Democratic party in his home state would like him to stay in hiding permanently,” Carlson said on his show of July 13.
“Democrats there are outraged. They’re shocked. They are circulating a petition calling for Vitter to resign his Senate seat, because what he did is so embarrassing, it violates the high standards of the state of Louisiana,” Carlson said with what I took to be sarcasm.
That swipe, can be found on the transcript.
CARLSON: It‘s against the law in the sense that double parking is against the law.
PRESS: Tucker, you ask the vice squad about that. They‘re a little more serious.
CARLSON: In New Orleans?
PRESS: I think it ought to be legal.
CARLSON: Have you ever been to a restaurant in New Orleans? One out of three women is for sale. I mean, come on—
PRESS: It is not legal. He is a felon. Not a convicted felon, but that‘s what he is.
CARLSON: Well then—
Get a clue Tucker! You have insulted the women of a great city. This is not the first time Tucker has put his foot in his mouth, and I expect it won’t be the last.
