Tucker is SCARED.

Last week, we watched in collective entertainment, joy, and secondhand embarrassment as InfoWars host and high-profile Right-wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones got his ass handed to him by the opposing side’s attorney during the Sandy Hook defamation trial — which saw the ultra Right-wing nutcase ultimately being ordered to pay nearly $50 million out in compensatory and punitive damages to just one Sandy Hook family — after the family’s lawyer revealed to Jones and the courtroom that Alex’s own attorney accidentally sent him 2 years worth of Jones’ complete text and email data, some of which proved that the conspiracy theorist had been lying in court.

“Did you know 12 days ago, your attorneys messed up and sent me an entire digital copy of your entire cell phone with every text message you’ve sent for the past two years?” Sandy Hook attorney Mark Bankston asked Jones in the courtroom.

Since then, Jones’ communications data has understandably become a hot topic — with everyone ranging from the January 6th House Select Committee to his ex-wife hoping to get their hands on the info.

But apparently, there’s someone else out there who’s extremely concerned with that data — Though, it seems this individual is desperately hoping that the messages don’t go public.

According to The Daily Beast newsletter, Confider, none other than Fox News’ Tucker Carlson is “shitting himself” over the mere notion that his “daily” text messages with the InfoWars star could be leaked to the American public, per “a source close to the Fox News star.”

“Carlson and the raving Infowars ranter trade text messages on a daily basis, according to two people familiar with their relationship,” Confider reported. “If made public, these sources said, the text messages would be ‘highly embarrassing’ for Carlson.”

The newsletter goes on to add “Carlson and Jones have been friends for years, with Carlson having made multiple appearances on Infowars.” In fact, Tucker even penned a blurb on the back cover of Jones’ book, The Great Reset.

“Maybe Alex Jones is onto something,” Tucker wrote for the back of Jones’ book. “Read this book and decide for yourself who’s crazy.”

Confider notes that neither Jones nor Carlson responded to their requests for comments on the report.
