STEVE DOOCY (CO-HOST): Meanwhile, last night Tucker Carlson last night was talking a little bit about activism and journalism and he had this to say:


TUCKER CARLSON: With Trump all bets are off. Many journalists believe it's literally impossible to be unfair to Donald Trump or the people who work for him. Extremism in the pursuit of Trump is no vice. They've succumbed to Trump hatred that is so intense it has destroyed their judgement and in some cases affected their character, I see it all the time. Where normal people see the president's flaws -- and they do exist -- they see crimes and conspiracies. The rest of us may complain that Trump is undisciplined and implusive. Fair. They regard him as the single greatest threat to Western civilization since atomic weapons. 


BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): Well, that was Tucker's column yesterday, a bit of a pushback. Because everyone was just beside themselves trying to add details but something reassuring about seeing a former Army general out there saying, “I was in the room and there was nothing that was exposed.” The also thing to keep in mind too is, Donald Trump didn't tweet out last night. I thought that shows an additional discipline. Let's listen, let my guys handle it and Dina Powell handle it. They were there, they can walk it back.
