New Unearthed Audio Catches Fox News Host Defending Child Marriage

Newly leaked audio from call-ins to a shock jock radio program with somebody called Bubba the Love Sponge has added yet more evidence to the massive pile we like to call “Tucker Carlson is the Absolute Worst Mountain.” This time, Carlson just straight up defends a man convicted of facilitation of child rape. What’s next? Baby eating?

The co-host of the shock jock radio show, somehow being less terrible than Carlson, is talking about Warren Jeffs, a man who was on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted list for a history of arranging marriages between grown men and underage girls. Not just one time. Jeffs didn’t just help his friend marry a girl one time because he felt that they were in love (although any child marriage increases the minor’s risk of abuse substantially so still ew). He made a habit of it. Jeffs was out there marrying girls as young as 14 to adult men, and also had two underage wives himself, one who was only 12 years old.

Also, two of Jeffs’ nephews accused him of sexual assault, including anal rape when the victim was five or six. Absolute monsters, right? Not according to Tucker Carlson.

“He’s in prison for facilitation of child rape,” says the radio show co-host about Jeffs.

“Whatever the hell that means!” Carlson explains.

It means he’s in prison for helping someone rape a child, Tucker.

“He’s in prison because he’s weird and unpopular and he has a different lifestyle that other people find creepy,” Carlson continues.

Why yes, to most people, dedicating your life to helping men rape underage girls is, at the very least, quite creepy, Tucker.

Shock jocks are known for building their careers on being as offensive and “shocking” as possible, but even Bubba and his co-host can’t handle how awful Carlson is being.

“No, he is an accessory to the rape of children,” says the co-host. “That is a felony and a serious one at that.”

But according to Carlson, who apparently doesn’t understand what the legal term “accessory” means, Jeffs shouldn’t be in prison just for marrying off underage girls to grown men who will definitely rape them! The literal rapist should be in prison, instead! Should both of them be in prison? Apparently not, because it’s okay as long as it’s done under a weird cult situation. Should Charles Manson be released, then?

But hold onto your butts, because Carlson isn’t done. Once he’s established that he thinks Jeffs shouldn’t be in prison, he starts to defend child marriage outright.

“The rapist, in this case, has made a lifelong commitment to live and take care of the person, so it is a little different,” he says.

No, no it’s not, Tucker. The only possible difference is that somebody married the underage girl to the grown man, and that guy should go to prison, too.

Then Carlson claims that Jeffs isn’t “accused of touching anybody.” As familiar as he is with the Jeffs case, I guess he forgot that Jeffs was twice accused of raping little boys.

The awful goes on and on. Defending child rape is the worst of it, Carlson also engages in intense misogyny in the leaked audio, including calling women “extremely primitive.”

What do normal human beings think of all this?

The best thing Tucker could do for the world would be to become a hermit and never say another thing to another human being for the rest of his godforsaken life.
