It seems that we can call this one – “CHALLENGE ACCEPTED”.
Though, I’m not quite sure how did pollster Frank Luntz get his payback by making this move…
Only last Monday Carlson Tucker “ripped” the controversial pair, Pollster Fran Luntz and House Minority Kevin McCarthy for living together. He really didn’t hold himself back…

“Why do Republican officials listen more carefully to Frank Luntz than they listen to their own voters?” Carlson asked his audience on Monday, pointing to McCarthy’s bizarre living arrangements.
“That relationship gives Luntz outsized influence over the Republican Party’s policy positions,” the host added, noting that McCarthy and the anti-Trump pollster are not friends, but “roommates.”
“Kevin McCarthy promises Republicans he shares their values,” Carlson said Monday. “He tells them he’s on their side. He says he will fight for them against permanent Washington, the forces that would like to destroy their lives … and at the end of the day Kevin McCarthy goes home to Frank Luntz’s apartment in Penn Quarter, and he laughs about it.”
“Tucker realizes that he can make any accusation he wants to make and that cadre because he’s very popular among a certain segment of conservatism,” Luntz told Swisher. “I think Tucker is running for president. And I think that’s what he’s going to do. And I think he’s going to try to demonize and destroy anyone who might stand up against him. And that’s all that this is,” Luntz added.
Last August, Tucker Carlson stated to Mediaite’s “The Interview” podcast that he had no personal political aspirations beyond his Fox News program.
“I’ve never been involved in anything like that, I’ve never wanted to be involved in anything like that,” he said of exploring a run for president. “I’ll tell you this: I’m completely committed to saying what I think is true, and politics is a hard place to do that.”
Imagine a country where I’m considered a serious candidate for something, it’s just hard to imagine anything like that,” Carlson added, and when asked whether he would rule out a run, he was crystal clear.
“No, I’m not running for anything, come on,” he concluded.
