Tucker Carlson Raises Suspicion After Offering Questionable Defense Of Trump’s Hush Money Payment



Fox News host Tucker Carlson is being dragged online after offering a questionable Donald Trump’s defense by suggesting that paying hush money to prevent people from talking was a totally normal thing to do.

Trump faces a possible indictment over hush money payments he made to adult film star Stormy Daniels during the presidential campaign in 2016.

However, in Tucker Carlson’s world, this is how business and politics normally work.

“Settlements like this, whatever you think of them, are common, both among famous people, celebrities and in corporate America,” he said Tuesday on “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” arguing that a non-disclosure agreement is not a big deal.

“In this case, you can believe whatever side you want to believe, but paying people not to talk about things ― hush money ― is ordinary in modern America.”

According to the right-wing host, there was no wrongdoing, and the entire case boils down to the media and Trump’s critics believing that “everything he does is a crime.”

It comes as no surprise that Carlson sees such behavior as commonplace. Fox News has a long history of paying out settlements to make misconduct allegations against the network go away.

Carlson’s defense of Trump raised some eyebrows on social media.
