On Thursday night, Tucker Carlson said on his show that he reached out to Trump campaign lawyer Sidney Powell and that she refused requests to provide evidence of voter fraud.
This set off a firestorm on social media as conservatives derided Tucker, and liberals who have always hated Tucker, rushed to defend him.
On Friday morning, Sidney Powell responded to Tucker’s claims on the Maria Bartiromo show on FOX Business.
Sidney Powell: Tucker Carlson ‘Insulting, Demanding, and Rude’
Trump campaign attorney Sidney Powell, during an appearance on Fox Business Friday morning, slammed Fox News prime time host Tucker Carlson as being “insulting, demanding, and rude” after he called her out for not presenting evidence for her claims that Communist countries were behind voting software that she said threw votes from President Donald Trump to Joe Biden.
“I didn’t get angry with the request to provide evidence,” Powell told Fox Business’ Maria Bartiromo. “In fact, I sent an affidavit to Tucker that I had not even attached to a pleading yet to help him understand the situation, and I offered him another witness who could explain the math and the statistical evidence far better than I can. I’m not really a numbers person.”
Carlson, Powell said, was “insulting, demanding, and rude, and I told him not to contact me again, in those terms.”

Some people are pointing out that Powell did not have an obligation to give Tucker anything.
Sidney Powell owes Tucker Carlson and the rest of the media absolutely nothing!

@TuckerCarlson simmer down there buttercup. You’re not special and your show isn’t an ounce more important than pressing the case for the American people to a judge. We are talking about saving the future of free determination.https://t.co/2dh0Od46UE

FOX News has already lost so many viewers in recent weeks, many of whom see Tucker as the last person at the network they will still watch.
This does not help that situation at all.
Lots of FOX fans who were tuning in only for Tucker will now drop him too.
