Fox News host Tucker Carlson got into a heated, on-air clash with racial activist Tariq Nasheed over “white supremacy” and President-elect Donald Trump on Tuesday.
However, the exchange got particularly interesting when Carlson surprised Tariq by reading passages from his own book, “The Art of Mackin’.”
The debate began over this tweet:
Trump has appointed to his cabinet ppl from the Alt-right, a white supremacists sect that literally throw up Nazi salutes #NeverMyPresident
— Tariq Nasheed (@tariqnasheed) December 20, 2016
Carlson argued that it’s simply “not true” that Trump has appointed any cabinet members who have made Nazi salutes. Tariq simply doubled down on his criticism of the so-called “alt-right” in response.
When it was clear there would be no common ground discovered, Carlson turned the focus onto Tariq’s book.
The Daily Caller provides a rundown:
“I was just reading it today, it’s interesting stuff,” Carlson noted. “Chapter 6: Guaranteed Ways To Get Sex From Women.”
“In this chapter, I will give you tried and proven techniques that will help you talk a woman into giving it up,” Carlson quoted. “I will also give you precise rebuttals to every objection a woman may have to giving it up.”
“You say, ‘the number one lame thing men say to get sex? I love you.’ You describe this as the ‘bold lie approach,’” he continued. “And then you say this, ‘if a woman isn’t ready for sex you 1) question her maturity 2) minimize the significance of sex and 3) tell her what you want to hear.”
“You’re advocating lying to take advantage of women sexually. This is in your book. I’m not misquoting it.” Carlson posed to Nasheed. “Why should we believe anything that you say if you’re counseling people to say ‘I love you’ and lie to women in order to get them in bed?”
Clearly unhappy with Carlson confronting him, Tariq claimed that much of the book is just “tongue-in-cheek” and “satire.”
“I knew you were going to say that,” Carlson replied.
“Don’t be a sucker, Tucker,” Tariq shot back. “Don’t be a sucker, Tucker. That’s so cheap.”
