Tucker Carlson has described former Vice President Mike Pence as “creepy” and “sinister” in an upcoming biography.
The Dossier, a Substack page run by independent journalist Jordan Schachtel obtained a copy of Chadwick Moore’s “Tucker,” where the former Fox News host recalled his dealings with Pence.
“I’ve been around him a lot, and always felt that he was a totally sinister figure, craven and dishonest,” he said.
“Everything about Pence is false.”
Tucker also claims in the biography that Mike Pence “purposely sabotaged the Trump Administration over the entire course of his tenure” and that Pence’s “insubordination campaign went into overdrive during the covid hysteria era, when he stood up the infamous White House Coronavirus Task Force, and delivered unprecedented power to Dr. Anthony Fauci.”
“While noting that this does not absolve President Trump from ultimate responsibility for his actions, Carlson perceives Pence’s role as someone deployed into the administration to “undermine Trump and to keep an eye on him,'” Schachtel wrote.
The news comes just over a week after Tucker grilled Pence for his support for arming Ukraine.
Carlson told Pence during the interview that the Ukrainian government was arresting priests for “having views they disagree with” and persecuting Christians.
“I sincerely wonder how a Christian leader could support the arrest of Christians for having different views,” asked Carlson
“I asked the Christian leader in Kyiv if that was, in fact, happening, and he assured me it was not,” the former Indiana governor responded. “People were not being persecuted for their religious beliefs.”
Pence also defended his decision to certify the election on Jan. 6, 2021.
“I had no right to overturn the election,” he told Carlson.
“The presidency belongs to the American people, and the American people alone,” Pence said.
Unsurprisingly, Pence’s presidential campaign has failed to gain any real support as he remains far behind the front-runners in the primary polls.
Pence’s support is at 5.5 percent, tied for third place with businessman Vivek Ramaswamy, according to RealClearPolitics polling average.
Meanwhile, Trump is in the lead at 52.3 percent, followed by Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis at 18 percent.
