Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) responded to Tucker Carlson, who called the politician “eyepatch McCain” during a conversation about foreign policy. Crenshaw called the Fox News host “juvenile” for his remarks.

Crenshaw had previously conveyed to Fox News host Trey Gowdy that people who do not back sending $40 billion to Ukraine for their war are “pro-Russia.” As a result, Carlson went after the representative.

“Why is Congress so focused on Ukraine, but you can’t find baby formula?” Carlson said. “According to congressman Dan Crenshaw of Texas, asking questions like that, or really any questions at all, thinking you are a citizen, makes you’ pro-Russia.’”

“You know, the more I think about it, it takes a lot of gall for or eyepatch McCain to attack moms who are worried about baby formula as pro-Russia.”

Crenshaw spoke with The Daily Caller, responding to the remarks by the host, who was a co-founder of the outlet. 

“You hurl juvenile insults when you know you’ve lost the debate,” Crenshaw said. “I stand by every word I said in my interview with Trey Gowdy.”

Left-wing pundits continue to attack Fox News’ Tucker Carlson labeling him as a racist in the aftermath of a supermarket massacre that left 10 people dead. 

According to Breitbart, MSNBC’s Joy Reid recently accused him of “injecting racist conspiracy theory into the veins of Republican voters.”

“No singular voice in right-wing media has done more to elevate this racist conspiracy theory than Tucker, who, even with a new head writer, spends night after primetime injecting the rot from the dregs of the internet directly into the veins of Republican voters.”

The “ReidOut” host discussed a narrative that has become popular when discussing Carlson’s show and that is something called replacement theory. Carlson broached the idea when discussing the mass influx of migrants across the Southern Border. 

“The reality is, Tucker is not some deep thinker,” said Reid. “He’s clearly just channeling the gross stuff his viewers could easily find online, then feeding it to Republican voters and Republican politicians as infotainment, and that feedback loop has terrifying reach.”
