While trying to clear his name after being accused of sex trafficking a minor, Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) appeared on Fox News and dragged host Tucker Carlson down with him. Now, the Fox News personality is reportedly furious with the Republican lawmaker.
During the interview, Gaetz defended himself against allegations of sex trafficking by mentioning sexual misconduct allegations that were made against the Fox News host.
Gaetz noted that he was “not the only person on screen right now who’s been falsely accused of a terrible sex act.”
Later in the video, Gaetz claimed that Carlson had met one of the women who was involved in his scandal.
“You and I went to dinner about two years ago,” Gaetz explained during the interview. “Your wife was there, and I brought a friend of mine, you’ll remember her.”
A source close to Carlson later told CNN that the host was livid about the way Gaetz defended himself.
“It pissed him off,” the source said.
