Tucker Carlson Launches Bizarre, Confusing Rant Attacking Oregon Governor’s Bisexuality

Fox News opinion host Tucker Carlson launched a bizarre rant attacking out Oregon Gov. Kate Brown (D) for being married to a man despite having come out as bisexual.

On Wednesday night, Carlson began his attack by denouncing Brown for announcing a mask mandate in her state but quickly launched into a discussion about her sexual orientation.

Carlson then made the unfounded claim that Oregon voters “didn’t ask many questions” when voting for Brown but asserted that “the one thing they did learn about Kate Brown over and over again is that she is a self-described bisexual.”

“Why is this relevant?” Carlson asked after bringing up the topic for some unknown reason. “Well, the media didn’t explain, they told us without exactly explaining what it meant, that this fact was historic and it was highly thrilling. Kate Brown’s sex life was shattering ceilings. Woo-hoo.”

“And yet if you looked a little closer, you noticed something a little weird,” he said. “Actually Kate Brown was married to a man. Yes, he had a different last name, but he was still, as they say on TikTok, binary. He was a dude. That’s fine, of course, but it was also a little confusing. How does having a groom at her wedding make Kate Brown an official member of the LGBTQ-exclamation-point community? No one bothered to ask.”

It is unclear what was “confusing” about a bisexual woman marrying a man. Bisexual people are attracted to more than one gender.

On Twitter, Brown responded to Carlson’s attack by tweeting: “Tucker Carlson, that’s what bisexual means.”

“To every bisexual person out there struggling to explain to your friends and family who you are and who you love: you are not alone,” she wrote. “Don’t let the bullies stop you from being true to yourself. You might even be a governor someday.”

Carlson continued his attack by claiming Portland was “destroyed” by “the leftwing militia” and that Oregon was mishandling the coronavirus pandemic because the state “had some dopey soccer mom who got elected because she claimed she had a girlfriend in college” as governor.

Twitter had a few things to say about Carlson’s rant.
