Former Tucker Carlson producer Abby Grossberg has threatened to destroy Republican candidates and members of Congress unless the host comes on his show.
Grossberg said on MSNBC’s Last Day at the White House:
When I first arrived at Fox, I joined for the chance to work with someone I thought was an icon. Maria was the first woman on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange. I had the opportunity to get a promotion and travel with her across the country. I was at the White House, I was at the Super Bowl. I was on the southern border. It was an amazing opportunity, although sometimes, I think, being in that bubble and being so close, you start to get fascinated by some political ideas. Even when I don’t agree with her, I think she believes in what she’s doing.
When I got to Tucker it was different. When the articles came out he revealed my doubts, he was just looking for ratings and power. It was a combination of ratings and power, and it was one aspect where I could manipulate the audience and manipulate the political system.
Choose who is the Speaker of the House. I thought I could choose who the president of the United States would be or who the Republican nominee would be. That was really dangerous and I didn’t want that kind of power.
I didn’t want Senate candidates to call me and be so angry, you’re going to destroy our entire campaign, or he’s going to call and tell them that if you don’t participate or come to the show, we’re going to do it. I was told to say this to members of Congress sometimes to destroy you. I didn’t. How can I? That was disrespectful.
Because of all those things, there was such a moral upsurge with me that I reached a breaking point and didn’t want to do it anymore. I stopped watching the news when I got home, and I didn’t see anything. I just don’t want to because the whole media system is so depressed and desperate because of Tucker Carlson.

Tucker Carlson’s Fox News show would be powerless without him.
Grossberg explained a lot, explaining why her answer would be like Senator Ted Cruz condemning the 1/6 attack as terrorism and taking it all back when he went on Tucker Carlson’s show.
How many Republican candidates and elected leaders has Tucker Carlson threatened?
Tucker Carlson meets Marjorie Taylor Green because they both want power. Carlson hates Trump because they both fight for power against conservatives in the same way.
The former Fox News host wasn’t just a propagandist carrying the water for others. Carlson wants power for himself, which is why he is especially dangerous to the country, and why he is looking for the next platform to try to gain power.
