Tucker Carlson: Matt Gaetz’s interview was ‘one of the weirdest I have ever conducted’
Rep. Matt Gaetz appeared on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight” on Tuesday to discuss the allegations that he had a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old girl.
Carlson said his interview with the Florida lawmaker was “one of the weirdest” he had ever conducted.
“If you just saw our Matt Gaetz interview, that was one of the weirdest interviews I have ever conducted,” Carlson said to his viewers.
On Tuesday, The New York Times broke the news that the Department of Justice is investigating whether Gaetz “had a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old and paid for her to travel with him.”
Investigators are also examining whether Gaetz violated federal sex trafficking laws.
Gaetz denied the allegations but confirmed that he was under investigation during his interview with Carlson.
“It is a horrible allegation, and it is a lie,” and it is “verifiably false,” Gaetz said. “People can look at my travel records and see that that is not the case.”
Gaetz went on to say that he was a victim of a purported scheme that was organized by lawyer David McGee.
Gaetz said McGee texted his father on March 16 “demanding a meeting wherein a person demanded $25 million in exchange for making horrible sex-trafficking allegations against me go away.”
Gaetz said he was “so troubled” by McGee’s demands that he contacted the FBI.
The FBI and the DOJ were “so concerned about this attempted extortion of a member of Congress” that they instructed Gaetz’s father to wear a wire, he said.
Gaetz said if the audio recordings were released it would prove his innocence and show the allegations against him were “merely intended to try to bleed my family out of money.”
“Tonight I am demanding that the Department of Justice and the FBI release the audio recordings that were made under their supervision and at their direction which will prove my innocence and will show that these allegations weren’t true,” Gaetz said.
Gaetz attempted to pull Carlson into the alleged incident.
“You and I went to dinner about two years ago, your wife was there, and I brought a friend of mine, you’ll remember her,” Gaetz told Carlson.
He said that the woman had been “threatened” by the FBI and told “she could face trouble” if she didn’t confess to authorities that Gaetz was involved in a “pay-for-play scheme.”
Carlson, however, said he had no recollection of the event.
“I don’t remember the woman you are speaking of or the context at all, honestly,” Carlson told Gaetz.
Later in the segment, Carlson said it was “one of the weirdest interviews” he had conducted and that it did not clarify much.
“I don’t think that clarified much, but it certainly showed this is a deeply interesting story, and we will be following it. Don’t quite understand it, but we will bring you more when we find out.”

Gabbard ‘no greater expression of hatred..towards women than trying to erase us as a category of people’
Former Democratic Rep. of Hawaii Tulsi Gabbard, had no fear in expressing how she felt about the state of woke ideology after a biological male was given a courage award on International Women’s Day earlier this month. She called it delusional, stating these woke beliefs create hatred and hostility against women.
Gabbard brought up the fact that the “woman” who was honored in the White House was “not actually a woman at all.” She stated what everyone knew: it was a biological male who identifies as a woman.
In early March, on International Women’s Day Alba Rueda, a transgender woman who serves as Argentina’s special envoy for sexual orientation and gender identity, was given the White House award for being a woman of courage. The International Women of Courage Award ceremony hosted by first lady Jill Biden and Secretary of State Antony Blinken and it it reflects a growing woke ideology.
It wasn’t just the White House. USA Today also honored a biological male for ‘Woman of the Year.’ In fact, Minnesota Democratic State Rep. Leigh Finke was on the cover and “is the first openly transgender person to be elected to and serve in the Minnesota legislature,” as stated in reports. Finke was also named “Woman of the Year” for Minnesota despite serving in office for less than three months, according to Fox News.

The Biden administration honored Rueda because of his courage. They said it was the courage of his transitioning and the struggles he endured. There are many biological females who endure great struggles and triumphs everyday but apparently the White House couldn’t find one to fit this category.
Gabbard brought up two major points on why this is so dangerous and disrespectful towards women.
First she stated, “there is no greater expression of hatred and hostility towards women then to try and erase us as a category of people and then to minimize us to being a construct of anyone imagination.” Her second point she stated was, “that by rejecting the objective truth, they are rejecting the existence of the objective truth as a whole.”
She is correct and one of the greatest manipulation tactics a government can use to subvert its citizens is to destroy the idea of the objective truth. A nation that is indoctrinated from the education system, to the t.v. shows we watch, to the movies that depict such lunacy and destroy the values and beliefs of a country will inevitably fall from chaos until a new regime takes over for the betterment of society.
This is exactly what we have seen in the past with examples such as the USSR, Cuba, Nazi Germany, and even the CCP today. Gabbard was a long standing Democrat who had to leave the party because she could see the direction they are heading. The woke ideology we are witnessing in the U.S. over the past 20 years is simply a subversion of our Democratic republic.
Yurie Bezmenov a Soviet journalist and former KGB office, who defected to Canada, gave a speech equally as riveting as Gabbard. In this speech he talks about the fall of Russia and the rise of the USSR. As a former KGB member he was a part of the subversion process. He understood what it took to shift the culture of a nation state.
In short, he explained that it only takes 15 years to indoctrinate a whole generation and to create an entire generation of sleeper cells who aren’t even aware that they are part of the subversion process.
This is what Tulsi is urging her listeners to truly understand. People must see beyond the idea that truth is merely a gray space -that it is no longer relevant and realize that this type of thinking is used to confuse and subvert the masses.
If there is nothing that is concrete and no truths that we can rely on then Gabbard is correct that women will be reduced to nothing and the years of fighting for what was once equity will vanish.
