Tucker Carlson Calls NFL Coach a 'Fascist Moron' Over Jan. 6 Fine

Fox News host Tucker Carlson called Washington Commanders coach Ron Rivera a “fascist moron” after the latter issued a $100,000 fine to the team’s defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio over comments he made about January 6, 2021.

Carlson took aim at Rivera during his prime time show on Friday and accused the coach of lying and spreading propaganda in a statement the team issued about Del Rio’s fine.

Del Rio had referred to the storming of the Capitol in 2021 as a “dust-up” during a press conference on Wednesday and later apologized for that phrasing but defended other comments about “violence in communities across the country.”

“But it turns out, no. Just hours ago the coach of the Washington Commanders, a fascist moron called Ron Rivera, announced that Jack Del Rio has no right to talk and he’s being fined $100,000 for doing it,” the Fox News host said.
