Messing with Tucker Carlson is usually a bad idea. The sharp tongued Fox News host isn’t one to back down from a fight, especially if he’s called out by the likes of Maxine Waters. The California Democrat made the mistake of accusing Carlson of trying to discredit her after attracting presidential buzz due to her planned trip to New Hampshire.
Congresswoman Maxine Waters took a shot at Tucker Carlson and Larry Elder on MSNBC tonight, and it didn’t take long for Carlson to respond on his Fox show.
Well, tonight on MSNBC’s All In, Joy Reid brought up the segment to Waters towards the end of their interview, asking her if there’s any truth to the 2020 rumors.
Waters denied it and said this:
“They’re trying every way they can to discredit me or to make people uncomfortable with me, all of that. So you’re gonna be hearing a lot more of these people who are all, you know, aligned around trying to discredit Maxine Waters because she has stayed on Trump’s case so much.”
The Fox News host, who was on air at the time of the attack, hit back in true Tucker fashion, airing out details about Waters’ housing situation. Literally laughing out loud, Carlson told his audience that Waters lives outside her district in a 6,000 sq. ft. mansion, worth $4.5 million.

“Waters is self-discrediting,” he said while shrugging off reports that Waters, 78, is considering running for president in 2020.
Carlson said the 13-term Congresswoman has gotten a pass from the media and other Democrats for 40 years.
He pointed out that Waters is “one of the richest people in Los Angeles” representing an extremely poor district. Moreover, she doesn’t even live in the district she represents.
