WATCH: Tucker Calls Tammy Duckworth a “Coward” and “Vandal” in Scathing Rant

In a new scathing rant, Fox News host Tucker Carlson refused to back down in his war of words against Senator Tammy Duckworth (D-IL)

Tucker tweeted: We have every right to fight to preserve our nation, heritage and culture. When vandals like Tammy Duckworth and Ilhan Omar tell us that we’re not allowed to question their patriotism, as they scream about how horrible this country is, we have every right to laugh in their faces.

“Keep in mind that Tammy Duckworth is not a child, at least not technically – she is a sitting United States senator, who is often described as a hero,” Tucker said. “Yet Duckworth is too afraid to defend her own statements on a cable TV show. What a coward.”

Per The Hill, Carlson and Duckworth have been feuding since the Fox News host criticized her for backing a “national dialogue” on whether to remove memorials for George Washington in a Sunday CNN interview because the former president owned slaves.

“You’re not supposed to criticize Tammy Duckworth in any way because she once served in the military,” Carlson said during his monologue on his Monday show. “Most people just ignore her. But when Duckworth does speak in public, you’re reminded what a deeply silly and unimpressive person she is.”

“It’s long been considered out of bounds to question a person’s patriotism. It’s a very strong charge, and we try not ever to make it. But in the face of all of this, the conclusion can’t be avoided. These people actually hate America. There’s no longer a question about that,” he said.

Duckworth hit back at Carlson’s comments in a tweet, asking if the Fox News host wanted “to walk a mile in my legs and then tell me whether or not I love America?”

The senator is a combat veteran who lost her legs in 2004 after a Black Hawk helicopter she was co-piloting in Iraq was shot down.

On his Tuesday show, Carlson criticized Duckworth’s comments, saying, “That’s what passes for an argument in modern identity politics.”

“They don’t address the points that you make,” he said. “They question your right to make them at all.”

“George Washington was a genuinely great man,” Carlson added. “But to morons like Tammy Duckworth, Washington is just some old white guy who needs to be erased. Let’s tear down his statues and rename our capital city Sharpton or Mandela and let the revolution continue.”
