MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow offered up a vigorous defense of her former colleague and Fox News superstar Tucker Carlson.

Maddow, one of President Trump’s staunchest critics, told Mediaite in an interview that Tucker has always held the same beliefs, opposed to his critics who speculate that he made a calculated decision to adopt a new persona to profit off of the rise of Trump.

The Daily Caller has more:

“I think the thing that Tucker gets a knock for — that he doesn’t deserve — is this idea that he’s evolved and changed in some radical new direction,” Maddow explained. “Tucker has always been that guy. He is legitimately that guy. He is not faking it. He comes by his beliefs and his convictions and even his tone of voice quite naturally. He is not putting it on.”

Maddow went on to argue that Carlson often took a similar position to the one held by President Donald Trump — he was simply able to express that position in a way that was less likely to drive people away.

She added that someone with Tucker’s rhetorical abilities automatically becomes “a very powerful political force.”

I like someone who cuts to the chase and is honest about it. Doesn’t straddle the fence. No guessing with Tucker. Even though I don’t watch Fox anymore, I do follow Tucker, Hannity, and Laura. Rest have made their stance very clear. No thanks to them

I agree with you Mary..but check out Hannity very carefully..he goes off the rails sometime. I noticed that he seems to talk over his guests,and more so with the conservatives.I find myself more and more tuning into Newsmax.

I also like Jesse Waters…and Judge Jeanine, they both call it as it is and stands with and for our great Pres. Trump especially Judge Jeanine…She should be a Supreme Court Judge…. President Trump has proven and demonstrated by making the “Impossible”, “Possible”, , achieving more than any president even with all the hatred. lies, attempts to impeachment him daily for over 4 years…a natural born leader/President also of the world…”We The People” will always stand and defend him and will always be our President…President Trump 2020. 👍❤️🙏🏻🇺🇸
