Tucker Carlson’s Interview with Former President Trump Overwhelms Republican Debate on Fox

X screenshot
Tucker Carlson’s interview with former President Donald Trump aired on X/ Twitter at the same time as the other Republican candidates’ engaged in debate on Fox News. The post with Trump’s interview was viewed over 300 million times, but it is unknown how many people actually watched the video. CNN reported that only 11.1 million people watched the other Republicans’ debate on Fox News. Another 1.7 million watched it on Fox Business. The average age of the audience for the Republican debate was 67 years old.



Key moments from the first 2023 Republican presidential debate

Eight Republican presidential candidates met on the debate stage for the first time Wednesday night. Former President Donald Trump didn’t participate, of course. Given his big poll lead, he insisted that his presence would only help his lesser rivals. Instead, Trump sat down for an interview with former Fox News host Tucker Carlson that was streamed online.

By not going, Trump sought to undermine the significance of the debate. But his absence also offered his opponents an opportunity to break out with millions of voters watching. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, Trump’s chief rival, had perhaps the most to gain — or lose. But several others were also positioned to take advantage of a strong debate showing on the national stage.

Here are our early takeaways from an action-filled night:

Vivek grabs the spotlight

At the center of the stage, and the center of the debate’s hottest exchanges, was a 38-year-old man who no one expected to be there even a few months ago – a novice candidate and technology entrepreneur named Vivek Ramaswamy.

Though he’s well behind Trump, Ramaswamy has crept up in recent polls, leading to his position next to Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis at center stage. And he quickly showed why when he showcased his ready-for-video, on-message approach, talking about how his poor parents moved to the U.S. and he had the ability to found billion-dollar companies.

Then Ramaswamy tried to show he wasn’t a regular politician and started to throw elbows. At one point he declared “I’m the only person on the stage who isn’t bought and paid for.” He slammed his rivals as “super PAC puppets” who were using “readymade, pre-prepared slogans” to attack him.

Why would anyone waste their time watching the GOP Debate? Of the 8 participants, 7 of them were programmed to give the same old political establishment rhetoric.

Yes, Phillip, VERY “exciting.”

Jose’ Stalin was once quoted – “It’s NOT the votes but those who COUNT the votes.” Dominion must somehow crash and burn.

ALL depends on whether the (Globalcrat) cheat-machine can be preempted and adequately obviated, to “allow” a genuine vote total outcome to prevail. Key states secretaries of state have re-written key voting rules despite having no authority to do so. Such power is given only to state legislatures (eg: Michigan). Additionally, Michigan’s executive branch malfeasantly engaged to preempt constitution by placing ruled illegal conduct onto ballot as an amendment initiative, then ostensibly “passing it” under those very rules struck down earlier in Michigan Court.
