On Friday, Tucker Carlson was visiting a fly fishing shop in Montana when he was confronted by local Dan Bailey.
A video has been shared online where Bailey can be heard saying “Dude, you are the worst human being known to mankind. I want you to know that”.
Bailey appeared to be mentioning Carlson’s stance on vaccines and continued to bother him after Carlson asked Bailey to keep in mind that his family was with him.
What you have done to this state, to the United States, to everyone else in this world. What you have done to families, what you have done to everybody else in this world. I don’t care that your daughter is here. What you’ve done to people’s families…”Dan Bailey
Ironically, the shop’s name is Dan Bailey’s Fly Shop, but a store affiliate explained that Bailey just shares a name with the store’s founder and is in no way associated with them. The spokesperson added, “To be clear, we treat every customer equally and respectfully. Our staff was professional and cordial to Mr. Carlson, as we are with all of our customers”.
Bailey shared the video to his Instagram, boasting “It’s not everyday you get to tell someone they are the worst person in the world and really mean it!”. He added that Carlson spreads vaccine misinformation, supports racism, and labeled him a fascist.
MeidasTouch, created by three brothers in quarantine, claims they are “a progressive, next-generation SuperPAC… with the primary goals of protecting American democracy, defeating Trumpism, and holding Republicans accountable”. They posted the video of Carlson to their Twitter and added a fundraising link along with it.
