Tucker Carlson may no longer be at Fox News, but he’s showed no signs of slowing down. He’s still on the forefront of American media.
And now Tucker Carlson’s new job has his haters completely losing their minds.
Former Fox News host Tucker Carlson has not slowed down at all since his departure from the major cable news network.
He immediately launched his Twitter show and has been met with immense interest from the American public as he has amassed hundreds of millions of views on his episodes in just a few short weeks.
Fox News was betting that he would be reduced to irrelevancy without the network giving him a platform anymore. That bet has not paid off.
Tucker Carlson is as relevant as ever in the conservative realm, as his numbers on his Twitter episodes have shown.
He’s even landed a new job that Fox News never could’ve seen coming at all.
According to several media outlets, Tucker Carlson will be hosting the very first Presidential forum for the Republican race for President in 2024.
The forum will be held tomorrow, July 14th, by Blaze Media — a major conservative media outlet that focuses on digital content.
It will be streamed on BlazeTV’s website as well as their YouTube channel.
Appearing on the panel will be Ron DeSantis, Nikki Haley, Vivek Ramaswamy, Tim Scott, and Mike Pence — all major Republican candidates for President.
Blaze Media announced on their website:
Blaze Media is joining forces with the FAMiLY Leader to present a presidential candidate forum hosted by Tucker Carlson.

Certainly this is a big get for Tucker Carlson after his departure from Fox News.
Tucker Carlson is obviously respected enough to hold a critical first Presidential forum that could prove pivotal for the race for the Republican nomination.
All of the forum participants have lamented the way Fox News treated Tucker Carlson as well, showing that he’s got the backing of some of the most important voices in the conservative voices in America.
Some have noted that it appears that the leading Republican candidate, former President Donald Trump, will not be attending the forum hosted by Blaze Media and Tucker Carlson.
The Donald Trump campaign cited a scheduling conflict with Blaze Media that has made it impossible for them to attend, as Donald Trump has an event scheduled at that time with Turning Point USA, a major conservative advocacy organization that’s headed up by Charlie Kirk.
It will be interesting, though, to see if Donald Trump and his campaign continues to distance themselves from the status quo expected of Republican candidates.
They’ve indicated that Trump is already showing a lack of interest in attending the Republican debates because the Republican Party is requiring all participants to pledge support for the eventual nominee, no matter what.
Donald Trump says he won’t do this because he believes he should be the nominee and that, if he’s not, the Republican Party probably pulled strings to pull the rug out from under him.
Whether or not that true is up to the conservative base and voters to decide. But without Donald Trump on the debate stage, it will be interesting to see how the base reacts to that and whether it helps or hurts Donald Trump’s standing.
There’s also the wrench being thrown into all of this that Donald Trump’s classified document indictment trial is set for August, when the first debates are supposed to take place.
There could not be a more interesting time in American politics right now, that’s for sure.
