Newsweek’s Kurt Eichenwald’s Painfully ‘Nutty’ Interview on Tucker Carlson Tonight

[brid video=”85170″ player=”2077″ title=”Newsweek’s Kurt Eichenwald’s Painfully ‘Nutty’ Interview on Tucker Carlson Tonight”]

In an interview with Tucker Carlson, Newsweek’s Kurt Eichenwald went on several unhinged rants to avoid defending claims he made on Twitter about Donald Trump. Carlson grilled Eichenwald about several tweets that he said made clear he was an advocate, not a journalist at the publication.

“I believe Trump was institutionalized in a mental hospital for a nervous breakdown in 1990, which is why he won’t release medical records,” Eichenwald tweeted.

But rather than answer what was a yes or no question–which was he had any evidence to back up whether Trump was in a mental hospital or not–Eichenwald just droned on about meaningless background in an effort to filibuster.

“Would you like me to answer the question or not?” he asked Carlson at one point. “You’re not fooling anybody, you’re trying to stop me from giving the answer.”

Several times he held up what appeared to be a binder labeled “Tucker Carlson Falsehoods.”

“This is a little nutty,” Tucker said chuckling. “I gotta be honest!”

Finally, Carlson ended the interview.

“I’m concerned about your behavior on this show tonight.”
