Tucker Carlson is the most honest news host in America.
He is unafraid to speak his mind, while every other host walks on eggshells.
And now CNN is furious at him after he was proven right about one thing.
Last year, there was no figure more loved by the mainstream media than Michael Avenatti.
He is the crass and outlandish former attorney for porn-star Stormy Daniels, who was accusing President Trump of having an affair with her – an allegation she now denies.
For months, every left-wing outlet couldn’t get enough of him, having him on nearly every day.
CNN put him on hundreds of times in 2018, essentially making him into a household name.
While on those networks he would make insane claims about the President and constantly predict his demise.
But there is one network he only went on a handful of times.
That’s Fox News, and his apprehension to appear can easily be explained by one person: Tucker Carlson.
During Avenatti’s appearance on Carlson’s show, he was hugely embarrassed.
The banner displaying his name said “Creepy Porn Lawyer,” and Carlson put all the questions before him that the media wouldn’t ask.
One of those questions has to do with Avenatti exploiting Daniels.
“I’m a little bit confused, you’re the protector of Stormy Daniels,” Carlson said. “Stormy Daniels is, right now, working in strip clubs in little towns on stage. People are throwing things at her. You are wearing a $1,000 suit. Why is — why are you not paying her? You’ve profited from Stormy Daniels. You’ve done tens of millions of dollars of free media on the basis of your relationship with her, and she is working in strip clubs. You are exploiting her and you know that. Why are you not paying her some of what you are making?”
Avenatti dismissed these claims as “absurd,” telling Carlson that he doesn’t have all the facts.
And that is true.
But now, we do have all the facts, and Carlson is completely correct in his assessment.
Avenatti is facing serious charges relating to ripping off and exploiting Stormy Daniels.
The charges allege that he used doctored documents to divert about $300,000 from a book deal for Daniels to himself.
And after being asked about it by Daniels, he denied it.
According to prosecutors, after receiving the money, Avenatti used a separate source to pay Daniels, only to use her book deal money to lease a car, pay a friend, and pay for “airfare, dry cleaning, hotels, restaurants and meals, payroll, and insurance costs.”
These are not the only charges Avenatti is facing.
Just two months ago he was indicted on charges of extorting the Nike shoe brand for $25 million.
He is also facing an indictment from April on tax evasion charges, and for bilking clients out of settlement money.
No major figure in television media ever put tough questions in front of Avenatti besides Tucker Carlson.
It is clear that he is unafraid of calling people out when they deserve it.
Do you think Michael Avenatti will end up in jail?
