ERIC BOLLING (HOST): You know, this whole revelations of the emails that Tucker Carlson at Fox was texting or emailing to, or texting to some of his producers and whatnot. And one of them is really disturbing to me. It's "I hate him passionately" – that Tucker said about President Trump. I mean, how how do you – like, I think people are giving Tucker a pass on this, but I just can't. I just can't get past this, Kari. I can't understand how a guy who can portray himself as a huge Trump fan on television, saying he hates him passionately is very, very much looking forward to the day he didn't have to cover Trump being in the White House every day.

KARI LAKE (GUEST): Well, from the way you describe it it sounds awful. I have not read the emails, so I'm reluctant to comment and say anything that would disparage Tucker because I haven't read all of the emails to even know what context that was in. But it sure on the surface sounds awful. And hopefully, he's had a change of heart and realizes that President Trump is the greatest president we've ever known and he is the man to turn this around.

And I'm assuming with the footage he put out on January 6th and the work he's doing to get the word out that there were so many lies told by our men and women in Congress – our elected officials told so many lies about January 6th, and we have a lot of people who are political prisoners sitting in jail, in prison right now who need to be let out. And I'm happy that he's doing that kind of work. But I just don't know enough about the context of those emails. I haven't read them myself. So I'm reluctant to comment on that.
