4:00 pm
good night from washington. in the meantime, merry christmas and happy hanukkah. "tucker carlson tonight" is up next. ♪ ♪ ♪ >> good evening and welcome to "tucker carlson tonight." as you have doubtless seen on the news everywhere, a member of the tolerant left screamed at ivanka trump and her family, including her young kids on a jetblue flight yesterday. the man who was the lawyer from brooklyn berated her about her father before being kicked off the flight for disorderly conduct. even while the liberals thought his behavior went too far. not all of them thought that some of them thought it was justified and that would include our next guest. she is lauren duca a journalist who tweeted this today. ivanka trump is poised to become the most powerful woman in the world. don't let her off the hook just because she looks like she smells good. lauren duca joins us. thanks for coming on.
4:01 pm
>> hi. thanks for having me. >> so i think, of course, it goes without saying that it's valid that you disagree with trump and have your own political set of views and disagree with ivanka trump. i wonder though screaming at a mom and her kids on an airplane seems like a violation of privacy and decency and good manners and it raises the question what are the venues where you shouldn't scream your political views at people? would a funeral be out of bounds? church? her son's brisk? what are the rules on that? >> well, i think what is a nonpartisan issue is that air travel is horrific and i don't think anybody should be intouring confrontations in the air be it ivanka trump with her children or just any other human being in a continue can and feeling dehydrated. and i think that the fact that she is with her children is significant. and i do also think that, you know, a mother in public, who is a public figure, you know, there are certain levels of decorum that we should be thinking
4:02 pm
about. at the same time, she does have an incredibly powerful position and she is not just a mother. she is a powerful, powerful woman who is connected very closely to the president-elect. not just as his daughter but in many ways as a business confidante and advisor and i think that we haven't quite been able to define what all those roles mean. so while i don't -- you know, i don't want anyone being yelled at on a plane, i don't want anyone yelling at me on plane. i don't want anyone yelling at anyone on plane. but i think that you know, ivanka's incredibly brand and presence and role as a mother and successful woman those are interesting and attractive elements of her brand but i don't know that, you know, where do those protections end, too? kind of would ask you the same question. >> but that's not at all what your tweet suggested in addition to the one you just read i think we can put it on the screen. >> my tweet didn't talk about the plane at all, actually. so what are you referring to? >> within the -- look,
4:03 pm
ivanka trump was in the news because she was screamed at on the airplane. and you say don't let her off the hook. and then you go on to say in another tweet ivanka has it all and by that i mean a job, a family, and sinister complicity in aiding the most aggressive antiwoman candidate of our time. she is his daughter. >> she with was a surrogate frequently throughout and represented him in terms of women's issues. she has. >> isn't she pretty liberal on women's issues? >> and she has did speeches on his behalf where she represented a platform of women's empowerment and in terms of having it all. i think she is incredibly successful, brilliant woman. the fact that she was able to balance him out on these issues where he has talked about defunding planned parenthood and being against abortion and these typically liberal women's issues that she sort of is a cushion for, i think we need to investigate those things a little more critically and
4:04 pm
rig columbusly other than the fact that she looks like she smells like vanilla. >> she looks like she smells like vanilla who is objectifying women here. >> my point is she a beautiful gorgeous force of nature. >> what exactly. >> oh honey, oh my goodness. i'm saying that she is incredibly welcoming. she is gorgeous and smart. i mean, she is in a lot of ways many elements of her persona are admirable and something to look up to is a joke. >> you said she is sinister complicity in aiding the most -- >> -- i absolutely believe that i'm not backing down from that at all. >> so it's sinister for a daughter to support her father's presidential campaign because you don't like her father? >> it's sinister for a daughter to capitalize on the power of feminism and uniting women and empowering women while supporting a candidate who is the most antiwoman candidate this country has seen in decades.
4:05 pm
>> what does that even mean? is he anti- -- she is antiwoman because -- >> -- is that what i said? because. >> i'm sorry is what i said. i think my ear piece might not be working because that is most certainly not what i said. >> she is guilty because is he antiwoman she is complicit in his antiwoman position. >> to continue to stump and support his position. >> but it's her dad. i mean, i don't -- i guess the point i'm making is you're drawing this kind of world where everyone who is not on your side. >> no. >> is evil. >> that's not what i said even remotely. >> that's not what i said tucker. >> even though she smells good. >> tucker, did i not say anybody who doesn't agree with me is evil. >> i'm going to ask you again, what do you disagree with that she has said? what position that she holds do you disagree with? >> i disagree with her providing a surrogacy for her father based on an elm
4:06 pm
empowerment of women disconnect between the campaign. >> you agree with her but because she supported her dad she is somehow fair game? what are you saying? i'm trying to understand what you are saying. what did she believe. >> tucker you are not trying to agree what she is saying. you are shouting over me what i'm saying. incredibly unprofessional. >> i'm asking a simple question. >> you are being a partisan hack who is attacking me at nawz crumb and not allowing me to speak. i think we agree here. >> i don't think we do lauren. >> we both think she deserves to be attacked. >> some guy yelled at her on an airplane and you are saying she is fair game. >> i very clearly and calmly said nobody deserves to be yelled at on a plane. i don't want to yell at you on a plane. i will yell at you here but not on a plane. >> on your twitter scream. if ump donald trump eat feces donald trump. >> i can't say the word you used as you well know. >> i said feces donald trump. that's what i said.
4:07 pm
>> you said eat in effect human feces on twitter. >> tucker, you are talking at this trivial mundane level of argument. >> okay. >> tucker, can i ask you a question? tucker, in i would like to ask you a question. >> let me ask you something that you wrote. >> no, tucker, do you or do you not agree that we deserve, as the american people, a level of transparency in terms of ivanka's role? i think we need to take her seriously in that she is a positive role model. >> look, lauren. >> she is a role model but still requires transparency. >> she is flying with her children on an airplane you shouldn't bark at a woman. >> i disagree. she is a mother. we do agree. >> were anyone making decisions how the federal government runs should have to answer questions about those decisions. >> absolutely. >> i don't think you should hassle people because you disagree with them in public, period. >> and i didn't say you should. tucker, hey, we agree. >> we agree. here is your description of the trump administration.
4:08 pm
you wrote this piece in teen vogue which i guess you right for. >> which you guess i right for? yes. that's not fake news. that's real news. you guess? [ laughter ] >> oh, you guess, tucker? that's really patronizing. >> i haven't read teen vogue because i'm not a teen vogue. >> your producers asked me if i wrote for teen vogue. my name is lauren ducca and i write for teen vogue. >> the rode ahead is a treasurtreacherous one. from deciding whether a president can be an admitted sexual predator from figuring out how to stop him from figuring out the insovereignty of an entire religion. >> yes. >> what does it mean to threaten the sovereignty of religion? what does that even mean. >> that means an entire agenda, a platform based on banning muslims, which is still available on his website. >> how does that threaten the sovereignty of religion? that's moronic, lauren, you are a writer. pardon me for taking you literally. >> how does what threaten the sovereignty of it.
4:09 pm
threatening to ban muslims. >> that threatens the sovereignty of it. >> yes. that completely profiles based on the basis of religion and reduces people to their beliefs and dictates what they can and cannot publicly believe. >> that doesn't threaten the sovereignty of it so, you also accused him on chelsea handler's show quote of committing a former psychological abuse of making the victim feel like they are tracy. does trump make you feel like yu are crazy? that's the impression i'm getting. >> are you calling me crazy? that's adorable. that's so cute. >> committing psychological abuse on you, do you believe that? >> on the american people. i believe the american people. trump supporters, hillary's supporters, jill and her can you say vin a victim of trump. he contradicts objective evidence. not that is he abusing me personally. i think you are smart enough to know that aren't you, tucker? >> i don't know. i just take your words at face value. >> so did you read the entire article? >> i did.
4:10 pm
i also read lima pain is 100 percent certain one direction will continue. aid ran that grande rocks the boots and kardashian went through the messiest break up in 2016. i'm trying to get what you write about trump from the thigh high boots and committing psychological abuse on you. >> a woman can love air air an darianna grande. >> i read teen vogue as of today. >> those things are not exclusive. you treat young women like they don't have a right to a political conversation. and cannot be. >> threatening the sovereignty of religion. >> worry about the future of this country. and those things are not mutually. i did write about the abusive. >> whole religion. i got to go. stick with thigh high boots
4:11 pm
you are better at that. >> you are a -- >> president trump down at mar-a-lago for christmas. joins us from palm beach. >> late this afternoon. the president-elect thinks that the terrorist truck attack in germany is just further evidence that the united states quickly needs to start using a different counter terrorist strategy. he tweeted this. quote: the terrorist who killed some people in germany said just before crime by god's will we will slaughter you pigs. i swear we will slaughter you. this is a purely religious threat which turned into reality. such hatred when will the u.s. and all countries fight back? there have always been a lot of questions this week about why the president-elect has been talking about expanding the u.s. nuclear arsenal and whether or not that talk is mint as a signal to putin. today for a first time we saw a christmas card sent from moscow to marge to the -- o
4:12 pm
to putin himself. merry christmas he hopes to quote take real steps it restore the framework of bilateral cooperation in different areas as well as bring our level of collaboration on the international scene to a quantitatively new level. mr. trump says president putin is correct and calls that a nice letter adding that, quote, i hope both sides are able to live up to these thoughts and that we do not have to travel an alternate path. we are also now a day closer to inauguration, and there are scattered reports of different celebrities saying they don't want anything to do with the once every four year celebration. mr. trump doesn't care tweeting, again, the quote the so-called a-list celebrities are all wanting tickets to the inauguration. look at what they did for hillary. nothing. i want the people. the highest profile entertainerrers booked so far are the radio city rockets. some of them have come forward saying they don't want to dance for the next president the weekend january it 20th. one even complaining that she is being forced to dance
4:13 pm
for mr. trump. but the corporate owner of the rockets came out to see any event you see roc rockette s event they volunteered for. they had more than enough volunteers for the new orleans. tucker? >> peter doocy, ladies and gentlemen in palm beach, florida. some states americans convicted of a felony are stripped of voting rights. according to one estimate a quarter of the state's black population cannot vote because of it new referendum could change that that is in the works. joining us is spencer who wrote a piece on this. thanks for joining us. >> thanks for having me, tucker. >> the idea is that because the estimate is as you said a quarter of the state's black population could not vote because their voting rights were taken away, because they are convicted felons that really the election turned on that fact. and that that's one of the reasons hillary clinton lost. am i understanding that? >> i mean, my article said
4:14 pm
that people have questioned the effect of this on election outcome. >> right. >> i mean, if you look at the bush v. gore election. for instance. spanned more than a million, the math is easy there. if you give more than a million people the right to vote in a certain state, put them in the electorate, that's going to change outcomes. that is a lot of people. so donald trump won florida by a little bit over votes. size, decent marginal. but, the state's disenfranchised population is 10 times that number. more than 10 times that number. >> i'm kind of sympathetic to the idea both because i believe people ought to be rehabilitated and i think once someone has paid his debt you ought to bring him back into society. i have two questions and no one has been able to answer them. the first is, will this result in a better government? are we certain because
4:15 pm
that's part of the consideration. we want the best, best qualified people we possibly can have. and i never hear that discussed. that factor discussed when this topic comes up. it's all about political power. well, we would have won if felons would have voted, et cetera. you have heard anybody bring up that? we'll just give us a better government? >> you know, i think it's always good to have representation in the electorate of people who are affected by government and a wide variety of ways. so to shut out people who have felony convictions certainly blocks a large perspective from weighing in in elections. another aspect of this is that i did a story for fusion earlier this year where i went to one of two states in the country that allows people in prison to vote. maine and vermont allow
4:16 pm
felons, ex-felons and people in prison to vote. only two states that impose no restriction on people who have criminal records on voting. and the inmates i spoke with in vermont said that it actually -- the ability to vote made them feel more excited about reincident grating abou integrating with society and becoming a productive member of society because they felt. >> i get it i'm sure they like that. there is also me to consider and you and every other non-felon living in this country. we have to live under the government they help choose. so our rights are also affected by this. my second question is, if we're going to restore people's voting rights because they are constitutional and we think that if you are a full citizen you ought to be able to vote, why don't we restore their gun rights, too? i mean, people really making the case that you ought to be able to choose my president but you can't go hunting? >> the group of ex-felons
4:17 pm
disenfranchised in florida who are spearheading the campaign to end the state's prohibition on flown voting, they're not focusing on gun rights. i don't know if there is a comparable group. >> why is that unfair question? if we're going to trust someone to make the most important civic decision of all, who governs us and say simultaneously we don't trust to you go deer hunting or to have a shotgun at home, like, that doesn't make any sense, does it? >> i would venture to say that, you know, one answer to that could be that people who have been -- who have interacted with the criminal justice system to the level they have been charged with a felony, you know, a lot of felonies are involved violence and that is one way that i think gun control advocates would think you would keep guns out of the hands of people who in
4:18 pm
previous interactions with law enforcement have been proven to be -- >> so they are not -- hold on, so they're not actually rehabilitated. they are not ready to live among us as full and equal citizens but we ought to allow them to pick a president? >> i mean, you know, i think -- >> -- kind of got you there, didn't i, spencer? i mean, come on, really? >> hey, i mean, access to guns is just a completely different question. >> it's a question of trust. what -- as a citizen what do we trust you to do? i trust you enough to pick my president but i don't trust you enough to go hunting? i mean, meditate on that. i don't know. this is an interesting piece and thanks a lot for coming on and telling us about it ♪ ♪ ♪ >> time now for twitter storm nightly forecast of social media's most intense weather patterns. the washington metropolitan area transit authority metro

4:24 pm
i think though and kroncke, i think it's still official u.s. policy that we're against settlements, do you think trump will change that? i think so. and i think what you saw in his response to this. there are going to be big changes on january the 20th and we really need big changes, particularly at the u.n. i used to work in government in the u.k. with david cameron and almost like every interaction with the u.n. just confirmed to me what a ridiculous organization it is. generally speaking, it is almost can comically anti-israel, it is bureaucratic. it is corrupt. it is really really in need of a big shakeup. just as trump is coming in and saying i'm going to shape things up with his attitude from government contracts to the economic policy, this is another area where i think his straight talking style, which you have seen in the last couple of days all the diplomats have gone nuts about actually is exactly what we need. >> so, the u.n. is one of those organizations where the closer you get to it the harder it is to identify what exactly they do that's worth doing. they certainly haven't

don't think any has done. why wouldn't he be doublely toward the u.n. >> i really hope he will be. there is going to be shook and people are going to be horrified. as with some of the things where he is challenging these kind of sacred cows and breaking all these taboos. the proof of it will be in what happens. he has also said that something that he really wants to get into is the middle east peace process and really trying, to as he put it, make a deal there he knows how to negotiate. is he showing that already since even before taking office. and he has taken this strong position on russia, on china, right across the border. is he shaking things up by just being who he said he was all along in the campaign, which is a businessman who wants the results and he understands how to negotiate. in foreign policy that is exactly what you need. >> it's going to be the 50th anniversary of the partition of israel or whatever we are calling it and the u.n. hasn't helped at all. so maybe that will help. who knows. steve, thanks a lot. >> great to be with you.

4:31 pm
electoral college has always been the wrong way to choose a president. he joins us now with his plans to fix it ken, thanks a lot for coming on. >> glad to be with you. >> you start the piece by saying trump's election is another piece of evidence that it's a bad system and thank you for being straightforward about how you feel politically and that's fine. but you basically make the case if i'm understanding it that the electoral college is bad because it's not democratic enough. it doesn't respect the idea of one man one vote enough which i think is a real argument. but your solution, did i get that right. >> absolutely. okay. so one man one vote is what the supreme court setted in the 1960's is the sum and substance of the 14th amendment. due process, equal protection of laws. means one person, one vote. same weight. the electoral college contradicts that. and later amendment can change the meaning of the original constitution. >> that's right. >> so everything you said is right and electoral college
4:32 pm
is less democratic than a one man, one vote system for sure. it's your solution that gives me pause which is rather than have the states vote on it. which would be the most democratic way to vote on it, you are choosing the least democratic way to do it which is to have five unelected justices make the decision to change it that seems like more of the problem you are decrying. >> i understand it's an audacious argument to say that the supreme court can strike something out of the constitution. absolutely. the supreme court has done some audacious things, after all, abolishing racial segregation in public schools. establishing constitutional right for same sex couple to marry and striking down part of the campaign finance law in citizens united okay. so the supreme court way back when john marshal was chief justice said it is fundamentally the province of the judicial department
4:33 pm
to say what the law is. and if the electoral college violates provisions of the constitution that were added afterwards, it's the court's job to do it. >> but, wait, leaving aside, you answered a separate question. you are basically saying the supreme court can find the constitution itself unconstitutional, which seems insane, but i'm not a lawyer. i'm asking a deeper question though, which is if your objections to the electoral college is that it's not democratic enough, you want five people who have not been elected by anybody, who have lifetime appointments to by fiat get rid of it. you want the king to come in and make everything better. that's the opposite of democracy. so why wouldn't you want to vote on it? why shouldn't the people decide to empower themselves? why rely on judges? >> because it is the province of the judicial department to decide what the law is and. >> no. >> sure constitutional amendment would be -- >> -- yes. >> a neater, a more convincing way to do it.
4:34 pm
and let's remember. the part of article 2 about how to elect the president was not the best work that the framers came up with. >> okay. well according. >> give me a second. it was amended 10 years later, right? because the first idea was the runner-up would be vice president. what a stupid idea. right? and 150 years later, in 1933, the united states, you know, the constitution was amended so that the four and a half month transition period, which was way too long even back then was cut down to two and a half months. so, we now national guard the president in january, not in march. >> right, i know all that and there was messiness around that and the original idea didn't work very well and they amended that as you just noted. i want to get to something i see not just in your writing but all over the left which is lack of faith in democratic institutions. you're basically saying change comes from lawsuits.
4:35 pm
you recommend someone file a lawsuit and then judges decide and rest of us abide by it what happened to the bedrock american faith in self-government? you seemed to have given up on it completely. you say less elegant way. not less elegant less democratic. >> you should ask conservatives that same question. >> i have. >> okay. good if you have. citizens united was the result of a request from the right for judicial activism. and you hear that on the legal rights. >> okay. but you're still not answering the questions. you have a case to make. i don't think your case is crazy. most people think yeah, that makes sense we want more democracy rather than less. why not convince people like ordinary people to push their lawmakers to do this. instead of just asking one guy to sue and some star chamber of judges nobody even knows to make the decision the rest of us live under. is that really the direction you want to take the country? >> well, first, let me say i appreciate your comment because one of the kindler things on twitter was
4:36 pm
somebody who called me unhinged. but, in any event,. >> just unhealthy, i guess that's the point i'm making. >> the supreme court has, in some sense, the final authority on what is constitutional. it's not really the final authority because once the supreme court rules something, there can still be subsequent, you know, backlash and et cetera, et cetera. but the supreme court is. >> i get it? >> is the institution. >> no. >> that can say in a definitive way this comports with the constitution or does not. >> yeah, but in the end, the people rule and i think we should all remember that anyway, ken, thanks a lot for that we appreciate it? >> glad to be with you. appreciate the time. >> we have heard a lot about fake news recently in the press. some say fake news is the reason donald trump won the election although they can't point to any specifically. many believe facebook is the

reason for spreading these lies and propaganda. in response the social media giant is planning to crack down on so-called fake news. how will this work? joining us now is will hicks, a reporter for the site heap street and he just wrote on this. so, will, thanks a lot for coming on. my understanding is among other measures, facebook is going to assemble a team of fact checkers to vet news and then rank it according to believability or some scale that they devised. all i have seen are from pretty liberal organizations. is this a glimpse into what we're about to experience, censorship based on political opinion by facebook? >> yeah. i mean, it's definitely possible. i mean, we have to wait and see. definitely the organization they picked snops, fact, politifact and abc news they definitely do have some sort of liberal bias. especially abc. just look at them like where their main anchors martha raddatz cried when donald trump won the presidency.
4:38 pm
