TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): These people are beyond -- they're literally beyond parody. Author and columnist Mark Steyn joins us. Mark, I should just say that I'm actually by temperament pretty non-judgmental. I'm not mad at Stormy Daniels or anything, but I notice -- I can't help but notice the impulse on the left is always to elevate and celebrate anything that is repulsive, degrading, bad for you, anything that is low and ugly, they deify. What is that about?

...

MARK STEYN: Last night, I was just about to turn into bed and I heard Shannon Bream -- I nearly fell off my chair, Shannon said that down in New Zealand, the queen had just given a damehood to a former prostitute. And I was so shocked, I looked it up before I went to bed, and she had been made a dame commander of her majesty's most excellent order of -- New Zealand order of merit for services to the rights of sex workers.

So, we are doing something here, where we are taking the most low and degrading kind of work a woman can do, and somehow pretending that it's empowering of women. And whether that's Stormy Daniels or this new dame down in New Zealand, that is not the case. It's an industry that exploits and degrades women, and in that sense, you should be able -- you should be able to say what Rudy said because it's self-evident.

CARLSON: And you shouldn't be forced to lie, and that's what they want you to do. They want you to lie because it's a way of establishing dominance over you. "I'm going to make you lie, and if you don't, I'll crush you." That's what they're really saying.
