Tucker Carlson takes the cake with new conspiracy theory

Tucker Carlson is wondering why “no one can explain why” the one-time “popular president” Richard Nixon’s Watergate scandal.

The Fox News host told his Tuesday audience that Nixon, who won 49 states in the Electoral College in the 1972 election, won by “the biggest margin ever.”

Carlson said, “And then within a year he was discredited, and six months later he was gone because of Watergate, which no one can explain to this day.”

“It was clearly operated by government agencies, including the FBI.”
