Fox News host Tucker Carlson gave his viewers an eyeful on Wednesday night when he featured a graphic that contained a colorful attack on his guest, Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.).
Hawley has faced calls to resign or be expelled from the Senate over his efforts to cancel out the votes of millions of Americans when Congress met last month to certify the 2020 election results. One blunt message came from Retired Lt. Gen. Russel Honoré, which was shown as Hawley spoke:
Honoré is leading an investigation of security at the U.S. Capitol in the wake of the violent Jan. 6 attack on Congress by pro-Trump insurrectionists who, like Hawley, were attempting to overturn the election results. When the Capitol was cleared and Congress resumed, Hawley continued that effort.
Honoré’s tweet was in response to a report that Congress may expel members, such as Hawley, who supported the Jan. 6 riot:
Although Carlson was unhappy that Honoré was leading the investigation in light of that “partisan” message, Twitter users were thrilled:
On the 16th Day of Black History Month, we recognize LT. General Russell Honore for having *NO FUCKS* from the day of his birth.
Thank You General Honore! https://t.co/SGLKVVuaKK
