Tucker Carlson dropped the latest episode of “The Tucker Carlson Encounter” in which he met up with the social media personality “who made Adam Kinzinger cry.”
In the episode posted on X, Carlson interviewed ” Catturd” – the social media personality with over 2.2 million followers who has remained a bit of a mystery as he kept his real identity hidden while dropping social and political commentary that got plenty of attention.
While the interview was applauded by many of the fans of both Catturd and Carlson, it seems there was some disappointment – even negativity – aimed the the former Fox News host.
Gregg Re, a former head writer of the Fox News show, “Tucker Carlson Tonight” jabbed his one-time boss over the latest interview and the direction of his online shows following his previous dominance as host of the most-watched cable news show.
The former show writer posted that “you’re one of the few people willing to say it out loud, but it needed to be said” in response to a comment by Chris Brunet, a contributing editor for The American Conservative.

Brunet contended that Carlson on Fox News may have delivered “timely, live, and fiery monologue on the border/fencing SCOTUS,” for example, rather than interviewing “accounts with a bunch of followers” so they repost.
But not only did Carlson’s interview with Catturd cover many impactful topics, such as the dangers of censorship, the current political parties, and the social landscape affecting today’s America. As for commentary on the verdict from the Supreme Court regarding the border, Carlson commented in a specific post on his X account.
“So it’s unanimous: everyone in power, from the White House, to the hedge fund managers, to the Supreme Court of the United States has decided to destroy the country by allowing it to be invaded. That leaves the population to defend itself. Where are the men of Texas? Why aren’t they protecting their state and the nation?” he wrote, generating plenty of concurring responses.
Tucker Carlson is on point as usual, we’re being invaded and everyone in power is letting it happen.
This is precisely why we have the Second Amendment — because we as Americans need to be able to defend ourselves when the government fails to.

As for the interview with Catturd, the social media star took to X later to thank supporters and mention how nervous he was to meet with Carlson.
Thank you to everyone who supports me. I was nervous AF when I was interviewed by Tucker. Put yourself in my shoes – I’ve never done a video interview in my life, and I was suddenly doing an interview, for an hour, with the number one interviewer in the world. 😂 So…

And while there were a few who echoed Re’s sentiments about the new Tucker Carlson, many others disagreed and gladly dropped some reality checks.
I thought it was a fantastic show, but I’ll admit my bias in that I enjoy Catturd.
Tucker does enough of that other stuff, no harm in dropping a turd every once in a while.

Yeah, it’s a real shame his audience has gone up by 70% and he’s not constrained by the whim of big Pharma and executives who believe J6 was worse than 9/11.
