TUCKER Carlson likened Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot to a Nazi for saying she wouldn't grant interviews to journalists unless they were people of color.
"If the Chicago Police round up the entire population of the city, Lori Lightfoot would have no trouble pulling the right ones out of line for punishment," Carlson started his show. "By the way, in case you're wondering, yes, that was a Nazi reference it was deserved."
"Lori Lightfoot is a monster, any society that allows politicians to talk like this has a very ugly future ahead, very ugly," he continued.
Carlson went on a tirade against the Chicago mayor for announcing earlier Wednesday she would be holding interviews exclusively with journalists of colors.
"It's a shame that in 2021, the City Hall press corps is overwhelmingly White in a city where more than half of the city identifies as Black, Latino, AAPI or Native American," wrote Lightfoot on Twitter.
"This is exactly why I'm being intentional about prioritizing media requests from POC reporters on the occasion of the two-year anniversary of my inauguration as mayor of this great city," she ended.
Citing Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) for the new rule, Lightfoot was met with plenty of backlash from both white and non-white reporters, as well as Carlson.
"Lori Lightfoot is a dangerous bigot," Carlson triumphantly proclaimed on his show Wednesday night.
"White people are disqualified because they are white, not because of anything they have done or said or think," Carlson continued.
"They are entirely defined by the color of their skin, you can see, this makes life a little easier for Lori Lightfoot," he raged on. "She knows who to hate just by looking at them."
"We are not supposed to allow behavior like that from our government, we are all equal in the eyes of law we are all citizens."
Carlson then went on another tirade against Chicago, saying it had high crime and murder rates as well as was ranked first in the nation for having the greatest number of rats.
