Sen. Tammy Duckworth Sets Tucker Carlson Straight

Published

Sen. Tammy Duckworth (D-IL) did not hold back on Thursday when going after Fox News personality Tucker Carlson for attacking women who serve or have served in the military.

During a Wednesday night broadcast, Carlson criticized President Joe Biden for praising the military’s efforts to accommodate women with properly fitting uniforms, maternity flight suits and updated hairstyle requirements, which Carlson called a “mockery of the U.S. military.”

Duckworth, who is a decorated veteran, fired back at the right-wing host.

“F*ck Tucker Carlson,” Duckworth tweeted. “While he was practicing his two-step, America’s female warriors were hunting down Al Qaeda and proving the strength of America’s women.”

“Happy belated International Women’s Day to everyone but Tucker, who even I can dance better than,” Duckworth added.

It is notable to point out that Duckworth served in Iraq as a Blackhawk helicopter pilot for the Illinois Army National Guard, and she lost both of her legs and partial use of her right arm in a rocket attack in 2004. She’s a war hero.
