Newsweek senior writer Kurt Eichenwald lost his mind after Tucker Carlson pressed him about his Twitter history on Thursday night.

About two minutes into the interview, the “Tucker Carlson Tonight” host and founder of The Daily Caller asked Eichenwald about a tweet in which Eichenwald said, “I believe Trump was institutionalized in a mental hospital for a nervous breakdown in 1990, which is why he won’t release medical records.”

Carlson asked if the Newsweek writer if he had any evidence to back up his claim. Eichenwald proceeded to spend the rest of the interview doing everything but providing an answer.

Last week, Eichenwald falsely tweeted that Trump supporters booed the late astronaut John Glenn.

He later deleted the tweet but not before it was retweeted thousands of times.

  1. Ouch! My head hurts! Listening to Eichenwald go on and on and on without providing anything of substance was the epitome of an exercise in futility, at minimum on the audiences’ part. He played out his dialogue, and I use that term loosely because it was actually pablum, like it was a cliff-hanger, just constantly teasing what his answer would be. However nothing was forthcoming!

    It actually looked like this could have been quite the enjoyable discussion to watch, at the outset. Instead it was, as Tucker Carlson said, a filibuster. I would have liked to hear what was being said in Tucker’s ear throughout this whole ordeal… Because this was HORRIBLE television! I believe Tucker and Fox probably were looking for an end to this noise and toss to something else…WOW!
