TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): Nancy Pelosi, I'm going to yell at you until you leave the Palm because you support a policy I disagree with. I think a normal person would say, you know what if you don't like it --
PHILIPPE REINES (GUEST): You're creating a hypothetical; that's not what happened --
CARLSON: It's hypothetical because conservatives don't do it because they're not monsters.
REINES: In the last 10 days, Donald Trump used the name George Soros for the first time in his presidency, and the guy had a pipe bomb in his mailbox last night, and we're talking about whether or not Sarah Sanders gets her cornish hen?
CARLSON: Whoever put a pipe bomb in George Soros' mailbox --
REINES: Why do you think they did?
CARLSON: Because Trump criticized George Soros, one of the richest people in the world?
REINES: Because Donald Trump runs around --
CARLSON: No because George Soros --
REINES: Don't laugh.
CARLSON: I'm laughing because --
REINES: You're laughing why?
CARLSON: -- to draw a connection between Trump, Soros I've criticized Soros a thousand times I hope he'll live long enough so I can continue to criticize him.
REINES: Because you're not Donald Trump. I'm not Donald Trump. He has --
CARLSON: Elected leaders are not allowed to criticize George Soros?
REINES: Come on. In 642 days, if there is an angry mob -- if we had gone from coconut juice and soy to angry mob, and everyone is so worried about violence, why has Donald Trump not said everyone needs to dial it down? The rhetoric in our society right now -- he has never said it, Tucker.
CARLSON: He said mobs shouldn't assault people and everyone's like 'Oh mob you're racist. Racist!'
REINES: He calls Democrats an angry mob.
CARLSON: Well, they are an angry mob.
