Beloved Fox News host Tucker Carlson is quashing those rumors he’s considering a presidential run once and for all. During a podcast interview, Carlson said that despite having interviewed multiple presidents he could never see himself as the man on the other side.
The Daily Wire reports:
“Oh, God, come on!” Carlson said in the interview Friday. “That seems like a fun job. I’m sure my poor children would love that. Can you imagine?”
“I’ve known and talked to every president, you know, for a while, for like more than 30 years. And you know, I can’t think of anyone whose life was improved by that,” Carlson said. “I mean, I guess if I was the last person on Earth, I could do it, but I mean, it seems pretty unlikely that I would be that guy.”
Some Republicans have listed the Fox News host as a possible contender in the 2024 election while being polled but Carlson has never seriously considered a run for office.
It’s likely for the best as former President Trump and wildly popular Florida Governor Ron DeSantis mull bids to enter the race.
