Changing Lanes: Tucker Carlson not about to denounce own brother over email

Conservative pundit and co-host of “Fox and Friends Weekend” Tucker Carlson says he would never denounce his family in public.

The editor-in-chief of Daily Caller and “Dancing With The Stars” alum told Real Clear Politics a story about his brother Buckley accidentally hitting “reply all” in an email chain with a staffer for New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio.

In the email, one of Carlson’s reporters called the staffer annoying and Buckley Carlson, who was blind-copied on the email, responded with nasty words for the woman. The woman sent a copy to BuzzFeed.

Carlson said the story “blew up” and reporters called him asking if he would denounce his brother.

“You know what? If my brother committed a mass murder I would not criticize him in public. He’s my brother. Period,” he said. “Under no circumstance will I criticize my family in public — ever. Ever. That’s the rule and I’m not breaking it.”

Good for you, Tucker. Nothing is more important than family.

Besides if he didn’t denounce you for that dancing, you owe him.
