KANYE WEST (GUEST): I felt like the people at the Gap knew about the school shooting that Matthew McConaughey was talking about before it even happened. It was so in-synced, the information, and then I heard about it on the radio driving and I was like, "Am I in The Truman Show right now?" And I tell Candace, she's gotta watch The Truman Show. You have to watch The Truman Show.

TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): What do you mean the people at the Gap knew about the school shooting, I think, in Uvalde, Texas?

WEST: Yeah. I'm not saying that they did but it felt so in sync, this idea of like this media rush over the 78 specific outlets that influence. Meanwhile --

CARLSON: So there's a coordinated message. I think that's what you're saying?

WEST: Yeah. Meanwhile, there's the same amount of kids getting killed in Chicago every week but there's no coordinated message about that. Have I reached Alex Jones territory yet?

CARLSON: No, I think you're telling the truth and that's OK if you do.
