- Tucker Carlson interviewed Donald Trump on Twitter Wednesday night — a move meant to eclipse Fox News’ Republican primary debate
- Carlson and Trump began discussing Carlson’s former Fox News colleague Chris Wallace, who left Fox in December 2021, angered by Carlson’s Jan. 6 defense
- Carlson said Wednesday Wallace was “no friend,” calling him a “b***** little man” and a “fussy little man” who was a pale imitation of his journalist father
Tucker Carlson has attacked his former Fox News colleague Chris Wallace, calling him a “b***** little man” and saying he’s a poor imitation of his journalist father.
Carlson, who was fired from Fox in April, hosted a show on Twitter Wednesday that rivaled Fox’s Republican primary debate: He spoke with Donald Trump from Trump’s golf course in New Jersey.
Trump referenced a 2020 election debate hosted by Chris Wallace for Fox News.
“And that probably wasn’t in front of any friend of yours, Chris Wallace,” Trump said. “He was the moderator.”
Carlson agreed, “No boyfriend.”

Trump continued, ‘Why does he want to be Mike but he doesn’t have the talent?’ It’s one of those.’
Chris Wallace’s father, Mike, who died in 2012 at the age of 93, was a legendary journalist and one of the original correspondents for the CBS news program 60 Minutes. Mike was famous for his decades-long interviews with figures such as Richard Nixon, Malcolm X, Vladimir Putin and Yasser Arafat.
Carlson said Chris was a shadow of his father and called Chris a “b***** little man”.
Trump joined the attack, saying, ‘He wanted to be his father, but he lacked the talent.’ His father was great.’
Carlson interjected, “Picky little man.”
Trump added, “His dad interviewed me in 60 minutes.” It was actually a ten. Can you believe that?’
Carlson laughed and replied, “At least his dad had talent.”

Chris Wallace resigned from Fox News in December 2021 after 18 years at the network and switched to CNN.
In March 2022, the 75-year-old announced that his decision was made in part because of Carlson’s portrayal of the January 6 insurgency attempt as a “false flag” operation.
Wallace said it made his stay with the network “unsustainable”.
“I used to find it was an environment where I could do my job and feel comfortable being involved with Fox,” Wallace said in an interview with The New York Times.
“And as of November 2020, that’s just become unsustainable, and more and more unsustainable over time.”
