‘Daily Show’ Host Trevor Noah Exposes ‘Racist’ Tucker Carlson’s ‘Long-Planned Vacation’ Excuse

The Daily Show host Trevor Noah checked in on Tuesday with Tucker Carlson, “Fox News primetime star and mom haircut model.” 

The previous night, Carlson finally addressed the controversy surrounding his show’s top writer, Blake Neff, who was fired by Fox for a history of racist, misogynistic and homophobic online posts. “So Fox News got rid of the guy,” Noah said, “but it appears Tucker Carlson might have some mixed feelings about how it all went down.” 

After telling viewers that he does not “endorse” Neff’s comments, Carlson said, “we should also point out to the ghouls now beating their chests in triumph of the destruction of a young man.” He then announced that he would be spending the rest of the week on a “long-planned” fishing trip. 

“OK, first off, I love how every time Tucker Carlson gets in trouble he takes a ‘planned vacation’ in the middle of the week,” Noah said, joking that he must think “the trout never expect you to show up on Tuesday.” 

Not only has Carlson announced sudden vacation breaks amidst controversy in the past, but the man who held his Fox News time slot before him, Bill O’Reilly, famously told viewers that he was going on a two-week trip he had booked “last fall” amidst his own sexual-misconduct scandal—and then never returned.
