Tonight, as Donald Trump finished his Oval Office address announcing a travel ban between the U.S. and Europe, except for the U.K., Gretchen Carlson tweeted out what she would never have been able to say on Fox News.
I think it’s safe to conclude that Gretchen Carlson is not a fan of Donald Trump or his response to the coronavirus.
From hoax to “I’m going to continue shaking hands” to @KellyannePolls saying #Corona was CONTAINED Friday .. this is quite a shift from Trump .. closing down all flight to Europe .. economic loans to small businesses .. while still reading the teleprompter like a 5 yr old— Gretchen Carlson (@GretchenCarlson) March 12, 2020
Nicely said, Ms. Carlson!

I would love to know Carlson’s feelings about Fox News and her role there; what, if any, regrets she has and what she’d say about the network in the post-Ailes, Trump TV era.
One thing is clear… unlike Megyn Kelly, Carlson is not looking to return to Fox. I give her props for that.
Bottom line: Anyone who has taken $20 million out of Fox News’ hide can’t be all bad.
