Tucker Carlson Undermined On His Own Show By Perfectly Timed Middle Finger

Fox News host Tucker Carlson was mocked on social media Monday after trying to show his audience a “mob” of abortion-rights demonstrators but instead getting the finger.

Carlson told viewers he was about to broadcast “live pictures” of a protest outside the home of Supreme Court Associate Justice Samuel Alito, author of a leaked draft opinion that, if issued, would overturn Roe v. Wade. Carlson noted that this was “what it looks like when you write an opinion the mob does not like.”

Rather than a seething mob, however, the live footage featured a woman speaking into a megaphone with some people standing behind her.

At one point, the woman raised a middle finger.

“Ah!” Carlson reacted, shaking his head. “Let’s turn that off, too much.”

It’s not clear if the woman speaking knew she was being broadcast live on Fox News.
