John Oliver late Sunday called Tucker CarlsonTucker CarlsonTucker Carlson swats back at ‘woke generals’ after criticismVeteran PAC slams Tucker Carlson for comments on female service membersOvernight Defense: Tucker Carlson comments cause military rage | Capitol guard duty questioned | Vet who served in Marine One unit charged in insurrectionMORE the most prominent vessel in America for white supremacist talking points, saying any talk about the Fox News host running for the White House “should be seriously alarming.”

During a segment on Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, the comedian bemoaned Carlsons popularity and influence, noting that Fox News has recently made moves to expand his presence through a documentary series and a podcast.

And if that wasn’t enough, Tucker’s also been floated as a potential future presidential candidate, which should be seriously alarming. Because of all the things that Tucker is a conspiracy theorist, a misogynist, islamophobe, a troll one of the most dangerous is that he is the most prominent vessel in America for white supremacist talking points, Oliver said.

Oliver noted that whenever Carlson is accused of echoing or sympathizing with white nationalism, he routinely questions what white nationalism is, appearing to imply that it does not exist.

Whenever he tries to define [white nationalism] himself ,it tends to be self-servingly narrow, Oliver said. But for the record, white supremacists themselves seem to be big fans of what Tucker’s been doing.

Oliver noted that former white supremacist Derek Black, the son of the founder of the Neo-Nazi website Stormfront, said that his family members look to Carlson for tips on how to advance their cause.

Carlson sparked widespread criticism last week after he criticized President BidenJoe BidenThe Hill’s Morning Report – Presented by Facebook – Biden to hit road, tout COVID-19 relief lawOregon senator takes center stage in Democratic filibuster debateThis week: Democrats eye next step after coronavirus relief bill win MORE for promoting two female generals. Carlson also called newly designed maternity flight suits a “mockery of the U.S. military.

Lawmakers and military leaders shot back at Carlson’s remarks.

Women lead our most lethal units with character, tweeted Sgt. Maj. of the Army Michael Grinston, the services top enlisted leader. They will dominate ANY future battlefield were called to fight on. @TuckerCarlsons words are divisive, dont reflect our values. We have THE MOST professional, educated, agile, and strongest [noncommissioned officer] Corps in the world.
