Tucker Carlson is beloved by the Right.
It’s mostly because he pushes the Left’s buttons with everything he does.
But now the public was floored when Tucker Carlson showed his true colors on recent shows.
No matter your politics, medical scares happen to everyone.
Last Monday, Tucker Carlson woke up in pain that was apparently like nothing he had ever experienced before.
Despite being doubled over, Carlson broadcasted his wildly popular show not just on Monday, but also on Tuesday and Wednesday.
Not once did Carlson make any mention of the pain he was in to his audience.
That’s some serious dedication.
In recordings obtained by Motherboard, Carlson is heard talking to his crew about the emergency back surgery he had undergone on Wednesday morning before he returned to broadcast his show that evening.
Finally on Thursday, Carlson took the day off.
According to Carlson the pain wasn’t just unbearable, it was also untreatable and that’s when you can hear the Fox News host tell his crew about the opioids given to him to dull the pain.
“They hit me up, they told me this morning, with such a huge dose of dilaudid, which is more powerful than morphine, when I got there, that I had trouble breathing,” Carlson said on the recording. “Scared the shit out of me. Didn’t have any effect at all. And then all night, I lay there, the nurse finally upped my dosage of dilaudid to the point where every eight minutes I hit it and it was like getting shot. Just like bam, feel it hit me, and it didn’t touch the pain.”
Carlson goes on in the recording to tell his crew that he has a newfound appreciation for America’s opioid crisis.
The host said that he understands why it’s killing working class Americans in mass numbers.
“I said this to [an associate],” Carlson added, “and he had such a deep response. He goes, ‘That’s why all the houses in Maine are unclean and have toys on the front lawn. Because the people are on fentanyl, they’re on opioids, and they’ve lost their dignity, their self-respect.’ That thing that makes you super uptight when you look at your house and you’re like, ‘Ah the shutters need painting. F*ck.’ Maybe you paint them or maybe you don’t, but it bothers you, because you have dignity. That’s gone. So you’re like, ‘Oh, there’s a half-chewed rawhide toy on my pillow? Okay! Lie there with it.’ I don’t live like that. Have you ever been to my house? We’re not crazy but we’re orderly people, cause we have self-respect.”
Tucker Carlson told his crew that he hasn’t been as fearful as he was last week since a plane crash he was in 20 years ago.
The Left can say what they want about Tucker Carlson, but the man is truly dedicated to his audience and this latest incident proves it.
