Tucker Carlson caught on tape cursing a historian who points out that he is a “millionaire funded by billionaires” to spread their talking points.

Well, that certainly did not go Tucker’s way now did it?

I would love to have seen the video of this exchange as I imagine Carlson’s smug face slowly morphing into a mask of rage. 

Here is a written version of the exchange courtesy of TPM:

Bregman initially made global headlines from the World Economic Forum in Davos for advocating for higher tax rates on the rich and beefed-up efforts against tax avoidance among the wealthy. Carlson opened the interview by praising the historian’s remarks at the conference, calling them “maybe the great moment in Davos history.”

Within a few minutes, though, Bregman pivoted to Fox News’ own pundits’ seemingly network-wide opposition to higher tax rates on the rich.

“Most of the people in Davos, but also here on this channel, have been bought by the billionaire class, you’re not meant to say these things,” he said, adding later: “What the Murdochs basically want you to do is to scapegoat immigrants instead of talking about tax avoidance, so I’m glad you’re now finally raising the issue, but that’s what’s been happening for the past couple years.

Carlson asked, sarcastically, “And I’m taking orders from the Murdochs?”

Bregman replied that it “doesn’t work that directly,” but pointed out that Carlson was a senior fellow at the Koch-funded Cato Institute, a libertarian think tank.

“You’ve been taking their dirty money,” Bregman said, describing Carlson as “a millionaire funded by billionaires.”

“I’m glad you finally jumped the bandwagon of people like Bernie Sanders and AOC, but you’re not part of the solution, Mr. Carlson, you’re part of the problem,” he continued. “All the anchors on Fox [News], they’re all millionaires. How is this possible? Well, it’s very easy. You’re just not talking about certain things.”

Carlson protested, telling Bregman, “I am talking about these issues” to which Bregman replied that Carlson was “not very convincing, to be honest.”

At that point, Carlson had clearly had enough.

“I want to say to you, why don’t you go fuck yourself, you tiny-brained— and I hope this gets picked up, because you’re a moron. I tried to give you a hearing but you were too fucking annoying.”

Bregman admitted that he was the one who gave “Now This” the audio, for which he has our undying gratitude.

    ““I don’t know, there could be some kind of a law that you can’t do this,” Trump told The Washington Post during the presidential election, when asked if he would force “employees of the federal government” to sign NDAs. “But when people are chosen by a man to go into government at high levels and then they leave government and they write a book about a man and say a lot of things that were really guarded and personal, I don’t like that.”” {toobadass}

    OT? Bet Not.
    “In what state Sen. Angela Paxton describes as an effort to safely expand Texas’ burgeoning financial tech industry, the freshman Republican from McKinney has filed a bill that would empower the office of her husband, Attorney General Ken Paxton, to exempt entrepreneurs from certain state regulations so they can market “innovative financial products or services.”
    One of those exemptions would be working as an “investment adviser””

      When you’re accustomed to seeing god as a named vertebrate at a measurable distance elsewhere, correctly seeing the architecture of nature feels like fake news, fiction, and heresy.

    https://www.cnn.com/2019/02/21/politics/senate-trump-russia-david-geovanis-intl/index.html

    “This is the first time that Geovanis’ name has been revealed in connection with the various investigations underway into Russian influence on US politics, which include a sweeping new House investigation into Trump’s financial interests.”
    “A third witness has alleged in written testimony, seen by CNN, that Geovanis may be valuable in the mystery of whether Russia has material on Trump that could be personally embarrassing to him.
    Known by the nickname “Geo” to his friends, Geovanis was born in Brockton, Massachusetts, and is a graduate of Trump’s alma mater, the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania. After starting his career in finance, Geovanis went to Moscow to work for a Russian venture of a company called Brooke Group, which owned land earmarked for the site of a proposed Trump Tower. When Trump came to town to promote the project, sources say, it was Geovanis’ job to show him around.
    Also on the trip were Brooke Group’s owners, the real estate moguls Bennett LeBow and Howard Lorber, who went on to become substantial donors to Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign. Trump personally acknowledged the pair from the podium after he won the 2016 New York Republican primary.”
    “In 2017 Geovanis was reemployed by Lebow to set up the Russian arm of another venture, Somerset Coal International, an energy technology company which claims to “clean” coal by washing it at high pressure.
    Among those approached by Geovanis for investment was Deripaska, the billionaire metals and mining magnate, for whom Geovanis worked in the mid-2000s, according to a person familiar with Somerset Coal’s business plan, speaking on condition of anonymity.
    Deripaska is so closely aligned with Russian President Vladimir Putin that the US sanctioned him and his companies in order to punish the Russian government for its activities around the 2016″

    FYI-BREAKING: All 5 members of @NCSBE unanimously vote for a new election in #NC09
    This will be the first redo congressional election in over 40 years.
    “Through the testimony I’ve listened to over the past three days, I believe a new election should be called. It’s become clear to me that the public’s confidence in the ninth district seat general election has been undermined to an extent that a new election is warranted,”

    The video’s been viewed more than 6 million times so far, and the average audience for Carlson’s show is roughly half that. Smart move there, Tucker. Bregman delivered this line as if he were talking to a small, dumb child.

    BREGMAN: But I mean you’ve been part of the Cato Institute, right? You’ve been a senior fellow there for years. You’ve been taking their dirty money. They’re funded by Koch billionaires, you know.

    CARLSON: How does that work?
    Well, first they get their checkbook out, and then they find a pen …

    Bregman then explains how bribes and corruption work. He describes Carlson succinctly as a “millionaire funded by billionaires.” He says he’s not “part of the solution.” He’s “part of the problem.”

    “I mean, when Kamala Harris says people are not starting from the same point – slavery was abolished a century and a half ago. Nobody alive today has a grandparent who was a slave. And in that sense I think you reach a point where, you know, you need to move on. I mean, the reparations thing, eventually as the decades goes by becomes ridiculous. I’m Canadian I think you guys should give us reparations because if you hadn’t had the revolution, we’d have the whole continent would now be Canada.”
