CNN’s Jim Acosta fires at Andrew Yang for appearing on Tucker Carlson Show


On Saturday afternoon, during an interview on CNN, Jim Acosta used an expletive as he questioned Andrew Yang for appearing on Tucker Carlson Today. The CNN host did not spare the entrepreneur who is also a politician. Andrew Yang is on a makeover as he projects himself as the right person to head a third party that would not only be new but would also be inclusive. However, his recent appearance Carlson’s show had a profound effect on Acosta.

According to a report by the Daily Beast, Acosta told Yang, “Tucker Carlson…I mean, let’s just say he’s a bad person.” Acosta added that Tucker represented all that was wrong in television news and that he “spouted white nationalist talking points.” and asked why Yang appeared on his show.

Earlier, Yang had discussed leaving the Democratic party to take a new path forward during his appearance on the daytime show hosted by Tucker Carlson. Carlson responded by speaking highly of the Unabomber and said that although he was a “bad person,” he had a “smart analysis” according to Carlson, “of the way systems work.”

Carlson added that the Unabomber’s argument was that large organizations became self-preservation projects after a period of time. Carlson also said that a big system in the end protected itself and “that’s kind of all it does.”

This response by Carlson made Acosta ask Yang another question on why he “didn’t go after” Carlson when he was “citing the Unabomber and just talking about crazy stuff?”

Andrew Yang replied to Acosta and said that he was working to bring down the temperature of the country and to meet folks “where they are.” Yang added that Tucker had a huge audience. Yang said that if a person wanted to attempt to “build a unifying popular movement” that made it a point to show that the present system was not working for anyone, then a person had to “reach out.”

He explained that he was “doing” that on the show as he wanted to have Republicans who were discontent to channel this emotion in a “positive way.” Yang said that his view was that things were not going in a positive direction and he would “like to help change that.”
