Tucker Carlson—conservative commentator on Fox News—has a penchant for conducting the most ridiculous segments of the program.
In a mash-up parody of Jeopardy! arranged by The Daily Show, Carlson's segments were re-imagined as part of the famous game. Except Carlson was giving both the questions and the answers.
You can watch the segment here:
The Daily Show also shared the video on Twitter.
Tucker Carlson has the questions AND the answers in "Tucker Jeopardy!" https://t.co/GsWIvcerES— The Daily Show (@The Daily Show) 1613433713.0
Carlson responds to his own segments in the classic Jeopardy! "question as an answer" fashion.
For example, after a segment where he boorishly proclaims "all cultures are equal, except they're not all equal," Carlson's talking head answers his own rambling with "What is a White supremacist?"

Carlson's record has always been spotty to say the least.
But with The Daily Show doing the hard work of putting some of his greatest hits together in one satirical package, the problem of this man gracing our family and friends' airwaves can be fully understood.
