tv Tucker Carlson Tonight FOX News March 29, 2019 9:00pm-10:00pm PDT
streets of colorado safe and warm in her heart. you and your dad or our midnight hero. most-watched, most trusted, most grateful you spent the evening with us. have a great weekend, good night from washington i'm shannon bream. ♪ ♪ >> tucker: good evening and welcome to "tucker carlson tonight." it's probably hard to imagine being more cynical about the news media than you already are. you watch the coverage and you know how totally dishonest it is, you read their tweets and you know how vindictive and unimpressive they are. if one of your kids wants to work at cnn, would you even tell your neighbors? you might be more tempted to tell them he's in prison. it's less embarrassing. it's hard to shock you about more stories about corruption but prepare yourself, we have a new one. today, an independent businessman wrote an account of an experience he just had with nbc news director dafna linzer. he's a "washington post"
reporter who now overseas news coverage. he did not expect to be talking to her but he got on the phone with the democratic national committee. he had a scoop about the date of the first primary debate, not a big deal but he wanted to make sure his facts were right. the dnc confirmed the story but asked him to delay publishingg it. they wanted time to notify their state parties about it first.bo all he refused. he just wanted to break his story. that was it. what happened next, "she asked if i could hold of the story and i said i couldn't." and she was agitated and said why not? i said i'm not going to lose this group. and then she got angrier and said, why not? it's not a big deal, i just have to make a few phone calls. i realize that linzer, the head of all political coverage for msnbc is not calling to advocate for her network, she was calling
to advocate the dnc position. she wanted me to wait to so they could call state party leaders. she was trying to bully me at the behest of the dnc over a dumb scoop. pretty shocking. now before you dismiss it as hearsay, keep in mind that he is not a conservative, hardly, he wants and worked for gavin newsom who was a fund-raiser for hillary clinton's campaign. he's not a right winger. the head political executor was doing errands for the dnc. she's a hack. this kind of behavior is par at nbc news. the chairman of nbc leaked the "access hollywood" tapes to "the washington post." why? because he wanted to make sure that other clinton won the presidency. then he lied about it and crushed the career of billy bush because he was on the way.y. they tried to kill a story about
harvey weinstein's sexual assaults and then they lied about that too. last fall when the creepy lawyer was making wild gang rape allegations against brett kavanaugh, nbc news knowingly sat on evidence that would have cleared kavanaugh's name but didn't really say it. if chuck schumer and demanded the united states and tomorrow, the walloons are the real threat. whatever it takes. hours after robert muellerom w deflated the russia hoax,th nancy pelosi demanded the press corps to start covering health care. she said that out loud at a press conference. so cnn immediately scrapped its entire lineup. the next day, every show on cnn from six in the morning until midnight, every single one without any exception, repeated democratic talking points about obamacare. these are not journalists, their faithful servants of the democratic party. it might be easier if they all admitted it. chris plante hosts a radio show,
"the chris plante show." we are happy he's here. how exactly would this happen -- the mechanics are confusing to me. how would they know that he was working on the story? >> someone at the dnc said, i got the scoop and i'm going to rain on your fun for a couple of minutes, they said who do we call to kill the story? i'm sure they have a phone book of people they choose to call. and he is the director of all political coverage for nbc and msnbc. what did she do? did she say i can't do that, that would be unethical. she dutifully called at the request of the dnc a freelance reporter. this is a woman who has great power. if you are a freelance power, these are possible t sources of
revenue for your wife and your children and their college fund. and she took umbrage with her acquiescence to the dnc's call and he sounded the alarm. now he will be hurt for this professionally because linzer does not appreciate, and nbc news does not appreciate that he went public with this. theoretically, it is embarrassing to them. but the dnc knew, let's call her, she can dangle a threat over his head, and she will call and put him on the ice. can you imagine doing such a thing? >> tucker: that was a question i was going to ask you. you are an out of closet conservative and you do multiple hours a dayt on your own views. you don't hide your views from anyone. i'm sure you vote republican most of the time. if the rnc called you tomorrow morning and set another reporter has a story that's inconvenient to us, would you help kill it? what would you say?
>> well, i would laugh in their faces. i do conservative political talk radio, and we were talking this morning with bill hess and victoria and michael about how much higher my standards are as a journalist. i'm not even technically a journalist anymore, but my standards are so much higher, my ethics are so much higher than linzer's and joe scarborough and chuck todd and the list goes on and on, really, journalism is dead. i was thinking about it when i was coming over here and i was a journalist for a long time. i worked for cnn for a long period of time. i didn't leave journalism, journalism left me, to paraphrase the great ronald reagan. journalism is on the ropes, and they are beyond that.op
they are dead, this thing is so bought and paid for at this point. every day as a prize fight and the referee is paid off. he is bought and paid for. >> tucker: so if at a certain point of channel gives itself over to the specific instructions of a politicalif party, which i think cnn and nbc news both have, and msnbc right now is running an infomercial as we speak for the green new deal. shouldn't they have to declare that as an in-kind contribution? >> i've been talking about that. president trump brought this up in a tweet about 3 weekends ago when the news media became apoplectic and said we should take a look at the fcc and the licenses of the networks. and my first thought was, that's not a great idea, i thoughty about it for a day or so and i said, i've got to tell you, these are not journalistic organizations or at least the balance has shifted from being legitimate organizations that serve a very important function in our republic. these are the guys that are supposed to be calling balls and strikes.a every day it's crooked.
it's not the thumb on the scale, the elbow is on the scale. >> shannon: it's totally corrupt. >> bernie goldberg years ago, a former "cbs news" correspondent wrote a book called by "bias." the idea is a quaint notion of a bygone era. the word is corruption. >> tucker: last thing, nbc leaked its own internal video, the "access hollywood" tapes, to "the washington post." two old friends from harvard, to separate news organizations leaked it. they've never faced any penalty for that. they've never explained how that happened. no one even mentions it anymore, why? >> they win awards for this. there is no punishment, there will be punishment for him because he told the truth. one of my favorite phrases is nothing gets you in trouble in
washington like the truth. >> i will take the truth wherever it's coming from. >> tucker: i agree, i totally respect that. from russia to covington to basic human biology, the left for some reason keeps falling for superstitions and conspiracy theory. why is that? we investigate, after the break. y theory. theory. why is
theory. why is a business owner always goes beyond what people expect. that's why we built the nation's largest gig-speed network along with complete reliability. then went beyond. beyond clumsy dials-in's and pins. to one-touch conference calls. beyond traditional tv. to tv on any device. beyond low-res surveillance video. to crystal clear hd video monitoring from anywhere. gig-fueled apps that exceed expectations. comcast business. beyond fast.
♪ >> tucker: a huge number of well-known people disgraced themselves during the two years of the russian collusion hoax. but two of them stand above the rest. former cia chief john brennan and former fbi director john comey. we expect lawmakers to grandstand on flimsy pretext, that's what they do. we don't expect much of the news media. they are buffoons. our most powerful bureaucrats are supposed to be -- they need to be impressive. we need them to be fair and smart and levelheaded. john brennan has shown himself to be none of those things.
during his years serving barack obama, he was known mostly for lying. under trump he has become a full-blown wild-eyed conspiracy nut. >> he is feeding and fueling hatred and animosity and misunderstandings among americans. >> i use the term that this is nothing short of treasonous because it is the betrayal of the nation. he is giving aid and comfort to the enemy. >> treasonous is aiding and abetting the enemy. trust as well as the enemy. >> jim comey meanwhile is smarter than john brennan, not that that is hard but he is a political partisan. something that no fbi director should ever be. at times his judgment has been bizarre. watch for example as the most a lurid portions might in fact be real. >> i honestly never thought these words would come out of my mouth but i don't know whether the current president of
united states hired prostitutes in moscow. >> tucker: those are the two most powerful unelected bureaucrats and you would not hire them to run a cvs. they are idiots, narcissus observing a story about some pee tape that ran on a cat blog. and adam schiff is still rambling on like a mental patient about russia conspiracy. >> from the public, you might think it's okay that the only disappointment during that meeting was that the dirt they received on hillary clinton wasn't better. you might think that's okay. i think it's immoral, unethical, unpatriotic, and yes, i think it's corrupt. and evidence of collusion. >> tucker: immoral, unethical, unpatriotic. people didn't use to talk like that, particularly those who are already all all three. but it's not just adam schiff.
bill barr, the attorney general looks like a decent guy but i in fact a living stereotype of the traditional modern republican. but looks deceive. a prudent stooge working secretly for mother russia and he cannot be trusted. >> for mr. bar to quickly issue a four page report in his attempt to try to exonerate president trump has too much of the odor of political expediency to help the man who appointed him, president trump. >> tucker: if chuck schumer says it, you can be sure the entire herd of brainless democratic presidential candidates say it, too. >> i am deeply troubled by bar himself. he should have recused himself in my opinion. so i have a lot of problems with him. >> do you trust barr's judgment on obstruction here? >> no.
>> i think what the attorney general did was undermine the purpose of the special council's job. it was not only arrogant, but disrespectful. >> tucker: it's very hard to overstate how dumb this is. we are searching for the words. he's been the public guy for 40 years. he gave money to jeb bush's 2016 campaign. it's hard to imagine that barr even voted for donald trump. not his kind of guy. for some reason, bill barr has developed such a deep loyalty to donald trump that he's willing to destroy his own reputation, subvert american government and commit crimes. why?
in order to help donald trump hide his criminal russian collision. that's what they are telling you. it's insane. they will tell you a lot of things like that. with remarkable frequency, the people that are supposed to be the most impressive in our society fall for hoaxes that no normal person would ever believe. the smollett hate crimes, a dozen more just like it in the past two years. the fake duke rape case and even faker uva fraternity case. weapons of mass destruction in iraq. the fraudulent fda food pyramid that helped make america fatter and less healthy. eat more breakfast cereal, that will slim you down. they bought all of this and much more without even pausing. when the creepy lawyer told them sex criminal, they believed him. these are the people who bragged about how much they revere science. and at the same time insist that you can change her biological by wishing it so. 40 years ago the same people warned us that a new ice age was coming.
they will literally believe anything. on the left, the enlightenment is over. superstition reigns in its place. this is what happens when conventional religions, the ones we all mock, die. people say, i'm secular. just find something even more implausible to believe in, and impose on the rest of us. but with way less self awareness, and therefore far more dangerously. a former cia officer and democrat, he joins us. i can't get past this. i know we put clips of politicians nodding and agreeing with whatever ludicrous conspiracy is out there, but that is what they do. they are not geniuses, they will say whatever it takes. but the head of the cia and the fbi ought to be sober, restrained, wise people. now we know they are not. how did this happen?
>> you would think they would've been, but they violated not only their oath to the country, but their oath to fellow officers like myself. we are taught explicitly that you don't violate that line between america's politics in politics in the intelligence community. john brennan, and james clapper have all done it. a couple things are happening, because the democrats are falling for these kinds of hoaxes. that is a coup d'etat stuff. why do progressive journalists do this? it is about money. it is more stories about bad orange man, more clicks and views, book deals and so forth, then democratic politicians, why are they doing it? more of that stuff means more fear. that means panic, hysteria. that brings intonations and votes. that is the short answer to your question, but actually, i think there is something bigger happening here that actually is more frightening to me. that is, as a party, we are
telling you through these hoaxes, that you are a victim. whether it be the smollett case, the covington case, if you are a victim that you belong to us. even if you haven't been a victim, you will be at some point. that, i think, is the underlying issue. since we have embraced identity politics, we have to get people to the polls based on fear, panic, and that is the stuff -- we 11 will be gone in two or six years. the democratic party, what it has created, his coalition, how it gets people to the polls -- if we are telling people they have to be victims and then we have to believe these stories about smollett and covington. that is the issue that is not going to go away, that is going to be part of the democratic party, and i hate to say this, but part of the nation for a generation to come because when people don't think critically, don't think for yourself, just say what you should say, if you are a person of color, or a woman, a victim, automatically believe them.
stop thinking. that is with the democratic party has become, and it is horrific. >> tucker: what will happen -- we are not at right now and there is no financial crisis, but there will be. so when there is a lot of outward pressure applied on this country and society is tempted, it's cohesion is really tested, what is it going to look like when people immediately retreat into their tribes and rely on conspiracy theories to explain them? >> yeah, you need a national identity to get through those moments. >> tucker: exactly! >> brother, we already are at war appeared in the intelligence community, we know that we are in a covert war against the chinese government, unquestionably. it has been happening for ten years. it is only going to become a greater and greater more obvious problem for those who don't know. but i work with folks in the military and the intelligence community, we all know what is happening, so we have to get ready now for this. it is already happening. what will occur in those five or
ten years when it becomes more overt? we have some of the two, and how many more years, focused on -- well the mueller report, it was redacted, so now we need unredacted. but it is never ending. we might as well be looking for hitler opening up a bread and breakfast in argentina. that is what we are doing and not looking for the things that matter. why don't we put behind the mueller think i'm have a reasonable conversation of isa trump the best we can do for this country now and forward? that is a great debate. but this conspiracy crap -- it is not wise. >> tucker: thank you very much much. the jussie smollett saga is getting weirder by the day. the president is involved. he's a lawyer is saying his attackers wore white face during the attack.
>> tucker:r: there are a bunch of weird new developments in the seasons weirdest new story, the jussie smollett hoax. the mayor is demanding that smollett repaid the city of chicago for all the police investigators' time. he is also saying -- we want to expand because it is impossible -- that is trump is responsible for smollett's
stunt. smollett hates trump, whatever. meanwhile, kim fox, who let this all happen, who prevented smollett from being prosecuted, admits she never actually recused herself from the beginning. >> right now, the city of chicago is demanding $130,000 from jussie smollett. they are saying that is how much it cost in overtime hours investigating smollett's attack. they wrote to jussie smollett in a letter demanding that if he doesn't pay the $130,000 within seven days, the city is threatening to bring new charges against the actor for filing a false report. chicago mayor rob emanuel, who has feuded with the president for years, alleges the only reason jussie smollett could take advantage of a hate crime, is because of the toxic environment he claims the president created. meanwhile, the mayor and the president agreed that jussie smollett is a liar, and
he says that he smollett that smollett all of a sudden stopped demanding justice since his charges were dropped. >> has he said a single word about any hate crime against a gay black man? no, nothing. >> came at foxx who workers herself, spoke with michelle obama's former aides, now admits she used the word recused in a colloquial sense, t legally. and jussie smollett is nominated for an naacp award in a los angeles tomorrow. it is not clear iff he will show. at the the members demand jussie smollett's nomination be rescinded. the post says he hopes jussie smollett wins. tucker. >> tucker: so many trends, i don't know where to begin. i thank you for the update. pretty amazing. as you just heard, the
prosecutor in this case, the one who let smollett go without any charges at all after he volunteered for two days is saying that she used the term "recused" colloquially, because she is not a lawyer or anything. meanwhile, jussie smollett's attorney argued that the actor was not lying. he said his actors were not acting out of some racial stereotype. in fact, they were in whiteface. >> according to the court records, smollett was a very clear with the police on the night of the attack, said the attackers were white, he saw their eyes and the skin surrounding their eyes. was s that a false statement? >> you can disguise that, put makeup on, it took me all of 5 minutes to google -- i was looking up their brothers in one of the first videos was one of the brothers in whiteface doing the joker monologue with whitete makeup on, so it is not impossible. >> tucker: the associate
editor, author of the fantastic book, he joins us now. great to see you. what i can tell, jussie smollett and his attorney are in a straight-faced way taking the position of this all really happened. he never lied. >> that is what they have to do to kind of power through this so he can keep his career? he has to thunderously deny that he was involved in this, even though we pretty clearly know he was. they have to come up with these crazy explanations. if your career requires you to wear disguise under your disguise, that is like absurd, clearly. but that is what she has to say. she is his lawyer and she is going to deny at this point. it was the job of chicago, of kimberly foxx to prove he was guilty. it wasn't his job to prove he is innocent, they had to prove he is guilty and they decided not to do that. at this point, the people i most upset with all the states
attorney. >> tucker: the problem with smollett continuing to lie is that it allows people to believe there isg a rash of hate crimes in this country. there is not. they are actually quite rare. california's biggest data reported a dozen or less them. this is like a tiny thing, and this allows kamala harris and her demagogues to pretend it is totally real. >> i think that is what rob emanuel was getting at when he tried to spin this onis trump, saying trump has made this country so unsafe so we believe this is ultimately trump's fault at one of course it is the opposite of that. we have been misled about hate crimes being off the charts, so we were prepared to believe this, or people in the media were prepared to believe it. >> tucker: so in other words, if people don't like your politics or you personally, and then they lie in order to hurt you, it is your fault? >> right, i guess that is what they were saying. i understand why he is mad. they did the investigation and even foxx, the states attorney,
says we would've won if we brought this to court. the evidence was good, and for some reason she just decided not to plead guilty. i would've been fine with community service. >> tucker: me too! >> our p jails already have too many people, i don't think we need to look at people who are not a violent threat, but she didn't get him to plead guilty, that is how it works. we would've had the catharsis of having it proven for all the people who said, i don't know what happened. we know what happened, we do know what happened, but we needed that verdict there, or that acknowledgment on his part. she decided not to go for that. >> tucker: i could not agree more, the critical thing, just to know the truth and have it acknowledged. we don't need to hurt jussie smollett, he is obviously a very wounded person already. thank you. the left has been calling its enemies racist or years. they call this show that all the time. racist! now is the 2020 race amps up there calling each other racist.
♪ >> tucker: for years, the left's and go to insult for anyone they want to stop talking or crush politically has been a racist! you are racist, be quiet! and out party leaders are jockeying for a 2020, and democrats are turning on each other. what epithet are they using? racist. it's amazing. racism is to blame for beto o'rourke getting more attention than she does. >> i don't think success is a zero-sum, so i don't want to disparage or take away from the legitimate response people had to his campaign but i do want to call to question, i think it race plays a part, i think region plays a part. >> tucker: when asked, cory booker agreed. meanwhile, over at cnn, joe
walsh argued that joe biden should not run for president, not because of anything he's done, but because of the color of his skin beer to the left is even segregating the press. in savannah, georgia, a republican or race was close to everyone who wasn't black. he defended his attendance at the meeting by defending, hey. >> do you think the message on the door is aggressive? >> it is not my meeting, i was asked to come and give a statement, so i came in i gave a statement. >> tucker: totally cool. i go to segregated event, not a big deal. chris hahn is a radio host and a staffer for chuck schumer, thank you for coming on. what is the democratic party's position on segregation? harvard, the epicenter for liberalism, has segregated graduation ceremonies, and now there d is a democratic party segregated by race in georgia, it said so on the door. is this something the democrats are for? too my knowledge, and i
think that any event that is a political should be open to all press at all times. i believe in full transparency and everything. >> tucker: it is not about transparency -- it is about segregation. why hasn't the dnc said anything about this? >> they should. >> tucker: what about the presidentialal candidates? >> if they are asked about it, they should respond the same way i did and say that it was an abomination and shouldn't be happening. >> tucker: it was at a democratic party event. okay. >> a local city council event is not necessarily the entire country. if you want to start trading event for event, let's start looking at events that are happening in the deep south of that probably whites only, even if not told that way, by intimidation. >> tucker: [laughs] that's insane. >> it's insane? it absolutely happens. >> tucker: are you joking? the civil rights division would be there with the fbi, that would lead every paper in the
country for the next year. that does not happen! >>ea okay. let's start looking. >> tucker: beto o'rourke was asked about reparations, and i want to play you his response. >> there was a washington times article saying you repose traditional reparations for black people, so why should i, u when you oppose reparations? >> tucker: what is the right answer there? >> the right answer is because he is for equality, he is for lifting people up. reparations is not going to be -- anyone who says they are for reparations, they won't be able to pass reparations, but that doesn't mean we can't have real affirmative action that left people up for lower income status and bring them into the mainstream society. >> tucker:r: that is a fair answer, but why not start with the democratic party?
the democratic party, 100% of its presidents have been a man, 93 present have been white, one exception. the democratic party is the progressive party, the woke party. why not award at 100 superdelegates -- i'm serious -- to every candidate of color and every female candidate in this race? one out apply those affirmative-action standards to your own presidential race? >> i think the democratic party celebrates diversity. i think we have a great field of candidates running in the democratic party of all races, genders, and even sexual orientation. i think it is going to be an interesting primary, and i don't think the democrats run away from the diversity that is bringing this country -- -- >> tucker: really? >> republicans are tailoring to the fear of people who worry this country is changing. >> tucker: hold on, if you've got the woke party and you're leading presidential candidates
are white, beto o'rourke and the former vice president, joe biden, then why wouldn't you apply the affirmative action standards you apply on the rest of your country to your own primary? why wouldn't you give it superdelegates -- i'm serious. why not do what they do at harvard in your primary? >> tucker: hereva is what i would say to that, tucker. it is important that. both parties make sure that there is a diversity in their delegates. >> tucker: [laughs] by the way, no one wants to live by their own standards. >> the republican party has 5% of their delegates be people of color. let me be clear, one party has a very diverse convention, and one party is very, very white beard and it's not the democratic party. >> tucker: [laughs] whatever! good to see you. >> thank you. >> tucker: time for "final exam" where two people in the news business face off against each other to see who's
been paying more attention. a special new york anchor showdown, martha maccallum host "the story" every night before this show. bill hemmer post "america's newsroom" every morning. we hosted that show together, deny, they are competitors. i cannot believe you have a great to face off against each other. >> just like old times. >> we face-off every day. >> tucker: a a little more bloodthirsty snide. good luck to you both. normally, i bet big money on the outcome but tonight i have no idea who is going to win. >> we'll see. >> tucker: you know the rules but i will repeat them for the audience at home. hands on buzzers, first one to buzzer gets to answer the question, wait until i finish asking before you answer. every question is worth a single point, incorrect answers detract from your best oh five. make sense? a lot of rules.
>> tucker: you make it a little lower than mueller, we will see. question one, everyone has things that annoy them, even the pope. according to a video,n pope francis says he doesn't really like it when people do what? what bothers the pope? >> sin! [laughter] >> that is what i said. >> tucker: it you are such a good person. of course! >> it is annoying! >> tucker: is at the correct answer? >> many people lined up because 10 minutes of a ring-kissing, the pope had had enough. [laughter] [laughter] >> tucker: our judges have
said that theologically that is correct, of course, but for the purposes of this show it is technically incorrect. >> i don't think every sentient count against me. >> i don't make the rules. >> tucker: question two, a british airways flight upset a lot of passengers when it landed on the wrong destination. it was supposed to fly from london to duesseldorf germany, but turns up hundreds of miles away in which country? martha! >> scotland? >> tucker: scotland? that is very wrong. it is at right answer? >> a british airways flight headed to germany mistakenly touches down 1,000 miles away in scotland. the plane landed in duesseldorf nearly two hours later. the airline says the german company that chartered the plane submitted the wrong route to air traffic control. what a surprise. >> tucker: i think you both knew that but martha, you were
lightning fast. >> it felt like he hit the buzzer before i did. >> i just heard a hole, that is my strategy now. >> tucker: now we are back at par, 0-0. question three. dunkin' donuts, which does not make health food, is with which sporting event to produce a pair of sneakers? >> do you want to guess, or do you want me to? >> you guess. >> tucker: sneakers may be the key word. bill hemmer. >> sport? >> tucker: sport. > basketball. >> tucker: which sporting event? with dunkin' donuts -- >> i'm not doing well at all.ng >> tucker: a running shoes. >> the olympics! >> tucker: at the olympics. we will play the tape here >>
dunkin' donuts has teamed up with the shoe company to create probably the best shoes ever for the boston marathon. america runs on dunkin doughnuts. if got the colors, the coffee mug on the tongue. how about that? how about that right there? >> tucker: boston marathon. what we have here is the most informed contestants have the lowest score in the history of this show. it just shows how serious you are. >> we thought it would be slightly more newsy.y. >> tucker: real news? no, not on the show. question four, this one is multiple-choice. jimmy carter has lived longer than any american president. how old is he? what are a, 94. b, 96? c, 101? >> i think he is 94. >> tucker: 9 is a jimmy carter 94 years old?
>> jimmy carter has just passed a major milestone. he now has lived longer than any other former president. it is not a birthdate, it is a notable milestone. today he is 94 years old, and 172 days. the previous record holder was the latee president george h.w. bush, who lived one day at younger than carter. >> tucker: you are absolutely right. martha maccallum, ladies and gentlemen. in 94 was the correct answer. that puts you up one to bill's down one. the final question is worth two points. this is another multiple-choice to get it back to zero.k a painting worth $28 million was found this week, 20 years after it was stolen off the yacht owned by a saudi shake. who painted the painting? pablo picasso, vincent van gogh, or salvador dali? >> i think it was van gogh. >> tucker: it you think it was van gogh. for two points, was it vincent
1-ear van gogh? >> a painting by pablo picasso worth over $128 million. [laughter] he previously hung in picasso's home until his death in 1973. >> tucker: this has been the most remarkable segment we have ever done. you know what, this is perfect. as long time partners and friends, i'm not surprised that you wanted to end on the same number but the rules require, one tiebreaker question. and this is a very esoteric question, we have asked a befor before. what is the capital of the african nation of burkina faso? >> you should know this. you always know this. i know. >> tucker: it is ouagadougou.
i'm telling you that because i don't want to wreck the perfect symmetry. nobody wins, yet everybody wins. >> everybody is a winner! >> next time, let's just do the mueller report, we will be fine. >> tucker: you guys are the best, great to see you tonight. that's it for this week's "final exam." how did you do? how are you going to do next week?? pay attention to the news every day and see if you can beat our experts. we will be right back.

he was never a serious person? this guy was discussed and, despite this recent news about him getting into new trouble. the sky was discussed as a presidential candidate on other networks, tucker. that actually happened in the real world. >> tucker: yes. by the way, was promoted by cnn, msnbc has a legitimate candidate. they fought over him. he is there kind of guy. not surprisingly. i agree. that is a terrific number three. what's number two? >> gosh, that was number three. what beats that? the jussie smollett case. i can't get over this case with jussie smollett. i don't know him. everybody has the right to be presumed innocent, unlike the left, the police state left, i actually believe in the constitution. but the kids, they have this thing on twitter, where they say, just take the l, take the loss, was a thing breaks better move on. just take the loss, guy. i don't know you, i have no dog
