They say the definition of insanity is repeating something over and over again and expecting to get different results. If we apply that logic here, Tucker Carlson should be locked away in the darkest corner of a padded room in a nuthouse somewhere, complete with a jacket that makes him hug himself.
I genuinely can’t even count the number of times that the Trump-loving Fox News host has had his ass thoroughly handed to him at this point —whether it be by a guest on his prime time show, an average American Twitter user, a Democratic official, or even a member of his own corrupt party.
However, if anyone is certainly the reigning king of putting Tucker Carlson in his place over and over and over again, it’s Democratic House Rep. Eric Swalwell.
Over the years, Swalwell has positively humiliated and destroyed the ultra Right-wing cable network host in every conceivable way — and it’s truly never any less of a pleasure and joy to behold. And now he’s done it again.

Carlson’s newest target for his Conservative rage is none other than a cartoon character. Specifically, a cartoon character of a piece of candy. More specifically, a damn M&M.
In his recent segment, Tucker took aim at the candy company over their decision to change the shoes on the female brown M&M that they “transitioned from high stilettos to lower block heels.”
Apparently, this newest change sent the Fox host into an absolute tailspin because apparently he just no longer finds this fictional, animated piece of candy as physically attractive.
“Also less sexy! That’s progress!” Tucker declared as he announced the candy company’s change. “M&M’s will not be satisfied until every last cartoon character is deeply unappealing and totally androgynous. Until the moment you wouldn’t want to have a drink with any one of them. That’s the goal. When you’re totally turned off, we’ve achieved equity. They’ve won.”

There is so much to unpack here, Freud himself wouldn’t know where to start. But you best believe, Swalwell had no problem firing back at the Fox host with one of his trademarked, spot-on, short, and witty comebacks to Tucker’s rage quit against M&Ms.
“You… wanted to have a drink… with an M&M?” Swalwell captioned a retweet of Tucker’s segment clip, followed by the hashtag, “#DeeperIssues.”

Frankly, Tuck, if you’re that pressed over an animated M&M no longer being sexually appealing to you, you should really see about getting those mommy issues figured out.
