A stunning segment on Newsmax just dropped a bombshell on Fox News star Tucker Carlson — but is it real?
According to Newsmax host Eric Bolling’s guest on Monday, Carlson doesn’t like former President Donald Trump. And he didn’t vote for Trump, either.
At least, that’s according to The New York Times writer Jeremy Peters, who also recently claimed that Fox News executives had secretly banned Trump from appearing on their network since April — a bold claim unconfirmed by Fox executives.

Peters made a lot of bombshell accusations. Take a look below and decide if you buy it… or not.
“There are a lot of people, Eric, who snicker behind Trump’s back, who say that they support him publicly and they like his ideas, and they like him, but privately, it’s a different story,” Peters claimed.
“In private, what he says about Trump is very different than what he says about Trump in public, and it benefits him to be seen having photos taken with Trump at the golf course and everything,” Peters said.
“I quoted him in my book. [Carlson] said, ‘I am voting for Kanye West.’ This is in 2020.”
“But he didn’t vote for Trump, as far as we know,” Peters continued, before admitting he wasn’t sure.
“I mean, I don’t know. I wasn’t there with him in the ballot box, but we know that Tucker Carlson is one of these people who benefit from having the Trump audience on his side,” he said. “But thinks very little of the people who make up that audience.”
Peters went on to repeat his unverified claim that Fox News had secretly banned their stars from hosting Trump on the network.
“It’s a fight between two very powerful figures: Rupert Murdoch and his son Lachlan, who controls Fox Corporation, on the one hand and Donald Trump,” Peters told Bolling. “I think we’ve seen this time and time again where they are always looking to one-up one another – show each other who’s boss.”
“And, you know what? In this fight, there is no boss,” he said about the reports of conflict between Fox News and the Trump camp.
“Fox News is deciding that, for now, it’s sustainable to not really talk about Donald Trump – as much to criticize him wherever it’s feasible,” Peters said.
“But, let’s not fool ourselves, as soon as their viewers and Republican voters – who are their viewers – start going the other way, that’s where Fox is going to be.
“I think that they know that Fox, that right now, they can afford not to have Donald Trump on the airwaves of the 24/7 like they used to, but we’ll see what happens once he announces,” he added.
