CNN’s lead ranter Brian Stelter accused Tucker Carlson of being the definition of “white rage” after the Fox News host railed against proponents of critical race theory.
“Tucker Carlson mocking the Joint Chiefs Chairman: ‘Notice he never defined White rage? And we should know what it is. What is White rage?’ You are White rage, Tucker. You are. And you know it,” the Russia hoaxer tweeted after the segment aired.

In his monologue on Thursday evening, Carlson eviscerated the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley as “stupid” after the general tried to defend the teaching of critical race theory in the U.S. military.
During his testimony at a congressional hearing earlier this week, Milley said he wants to “understand white rage.”
“I’m white, and I want to understand it,” Milley said.
In addition to echoing lies that the Jan. 6 Capitol riot was somehow fueled by feelings about race, Milley also said he found it “offensive” that members of the military are being labeled “‘woke’ because we’re studying some theories that are out there.”
“I’ve read Mao Zedong,” Milley said. “I’ve read Karl Marx. I’ve read Lenin. That doesn’t make me a communist. So what is wrong with … having some situational understanding about the country for which we are here to defend?” he asked.
After playing clips of Milley’s testimony on his show, Carlson slammed the general for his limited understanding of what critical race theory is.
“Hard to believe that man wears a uniform. He’s that unimpressive. Notice he never defined white rage? And we should know what it is. What is white rage?” Carlson asked.
Carlson also accused Milley of simply getting his job because of his willingness to echo corporate media and Democrat-driven narratives and agendas.
“Mark Milley is the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff,” said Carlson. “He didn’t get that job because he’s brilliant or because he’s brave. Or because people who know him respect him. He is not, and they definitely don’t. Milley got the job because he is obsequious. He knows who to suck up to, and he’s more than happy to do it. Feed him a script and he will read it.”
