The Arkansas Republican Party is still soliciting ticket purchasers for the Reagan-Rockefeller Dinner (Friday the 13th) at which right-wing pundit Tucker Carlson, who once spent a bit of time on the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette editorial page, is the keynote speaker.

Google what  Tucker Carlson has said in the past about Donald Trump, the Republican Party’s “presumptive” nominee.  At the top of the list, from an article headlined “Donald Trump Is Shocking, Vulgar and Right/ And, my dear fellow Republicans, he’s all your fault”:


About 15 years ago, I said something nasty on CNN about Donald Trump’s hair. I can’t now remember the context, assuming there was one. In any case, Trump saw it and left a message the next day.

He goes on to say some more critical things about Donald Trump, but also several positive things. He derides establishment Republicans he blames for setting up Trump’s successful run (think of Gov. Asa Hutchinson and other prominent Republicans who said Trump must be stopped). In the article, published in late January, he also made the case that Trump could beat Hillary Clinton. He’s “exciting” to many voters, Carlson wrote.

Not to mention women.
