Former President Donald Trump’s potential assassination has become a recurring and attention-grabbing theme for Tucker Carlson as he navigates his post-Fox News media career. The former president notably chose to forego a debate moderated by Fox News anchors Bret Baier and Martha MacCallum to appear on Carlson’s Twitter/X show, which was simultaneously broadcast on Real America’s Voice. This interview took an unexpectedly dark and speculative turn.
During their conversation, a particularly bizarre exchange occurred between Trump and Carlson. They discussed the notion that Trump’s own Justice Department might have been involved in the death of Jeffrey Epstein. Carlson then introduced the idea that this was just a prelude to the main topic—Trump’s own potential assassination by an undisclosed “they.”
Tucker Carlson inquired about the trajectory of Trump’s political journey since 2015 and highlighted the progression from protests against him to impeachment attempts, suggesting that the next step might be violence, including an attempt on his life. Trump responded by referring to some individuals as “savage animals” and emphasizing that he represents all Americans, not just Republicans.
The interview took an unexpected turn, and Trump’s responses became somewhat tangential and divergent from the original point.
Tucker Carlson later brought up the assassination theme again during an appearance on “The Adam Carolla Show.” In response to a question about what the future holds, Carlson discussed the progression of events leading to Trump’s potential assassination. He outlined the pattern of criticism, protests, impeachment attempts, and indictments failing to diminish Trump’s popularity, and suggested that the next logical step in this pattern could be an attempt on his life. He noted that although few are willing to openly acknowledge this possibility, the trajectory seems to be heading in that direction due to the perception that Trump poses a significant threat to established powers in Washington.
TUCKER CARLSON: So the reason I’m asking you is I’m looking at the trajectory since 2015 when you got into politics, you know, for real. And then one, they started with protests against you, massive protests, organized protest by the left, and then it moved to impeachment twice. Right. And now indictment. I mean, the next stages is violence. Is, are you worried that they’re going to try and kill you? Why wouldn’t they try and kill you? Honestly.
DONALD TRUMP: They’re savage animals. They are people that are sick, really sick. You have great people in the Democrat Party. You have great people that are Democrats. Most of the people in our country are fantastic. And I’m representing everybody. I’m not just Republicans, but I represent everybody. I’m the president of everybody…
Trump wandered off-topic and never returned.
But Carlson resurrected the notion in an appearance on Tuesday’s edition of The Adam Carolla Show. Host Adam Carolla asked Carlson what “the future holds,” and the answer was “assassination” as Carlson thinks government agencies like the CIA could kill Trump:
ADAM CAROLLA: What do you think the future holds? Is it?
TUCKER CARLSON: I don’t know.
ADAM CAROLLA: I mean, are they going to let Trump be president?
TUCKER CARLSON: No, of course. I mean, look, if, you know, they protested him, they called him names. He won anyway. They impeached him twice on ridiculous pretenses. They fabricated a lot about what happened on January 6 in order to impeach him again. It didn’t work. He came back. Then they indicted him. It didn’t work. He became more popular. Then they indicted him three more times. And every single time his popularity rose.
If you begin with criticism, then you go to protest. Then you go to impeachment. Now you go to indictment and none of them work. What’s next? I mean, you know, graph it out, man! We’re speeding toward assassination, obviously, and no one will say that! But I don’t, I don’t know how you can’t reach that conclusion. You know what it been like. They have decided, permanent Washington. Both parties have decided that there’s something about Trump that’s so threatening to them, they just can’t have it.
