Tucker Carlson has said he would never allow one of his daughters to date a man who identified himself as a feminist, because he believes it makes them a ‘creep by definition’.
The Tucker Carlson Tonight host – who is father to three daughters and one son with his wife Susan – made the revelation on Thursday night’s show where he said he was not surprised about Justin Trudeau’s blackface scandal this week.
The Fox News presenter blasted feminists as a whole and blamed his distrust on scandals involving former President Bill Clinton – whose White House intern Monica Lewinsky claimed he had an affair with her in the 90s – and Mary Jo Kopechne dying when Ted Kennedy accidentally drove his car into a lake off Chappaquiddick Island in 1969.
‘Would you let your daughter date some guy who called himself a feminist? No, ’cause he’s a creep! By definition!’ Carlson said while discussing the Canadian Prime Minister with Stephen LeDrew, the former President of the Liberal Party of Canada.

To prove that feminist men are to be suspected, he brought up Bill Clinton who was accused of having an affair with Monica Lewinsky (pictured in 1998)
He referred to Chappaquiddick in 1969 when Mary Jo Kopechne died, saying Ted Kennedy was a feminist and ‘he killed a woman!’ Right, Kopechne is pictured with Robert Kennedy. She later died when Ted drove his car into a lake
He laughed to the former president of the Liberal Party of Canada (1998- 2003): ‘Bill Clinton was a big feminist, so was Ted Kennedy. He killed a woman!’
As well as having son Buckley, born 1997, Carlson is father to daughters Lillie, born in 1995, Hopie, born 1999, and Dorothy.
Carlson said ‘alarm bells go off pretty loud’.
The host suggested that those who advocate too much for good, are usually the ones who have something to hide.
‘It’s like finding out that you and your super-sensitive brother-in-law, the one who tells you he’s a feminist, the one who’s always scalding you for your sexism, is, in fact, hitting on the babysitter,’ Carlson said.
‘Of course he’s hitting on the babysitter! The virtue is always a cover for the sin. That’s the key to understanding the modern left.’

So far, photos showing three separate incidents from Trudeau’s past have emerged, shocking supporters of the outspokenly ‘woke’ prime minister whose father was the pioneer of Canadian ‘multiculturalism.’
Trudeau first apologized on Wednesday night after a 2001 photograph of him emerged in brown face at an Arabian Nights party when he was a teacher.
He also referred to a high school incident where he dressed up as Harry Belafonte to sing the Jamaican song Day-O. A photograph of the Day-O performance in the 1980s came out on Thursday morning.
Canada’s Global News TV network reported a third instance, broadcasting a brief video of Trudeau in blackface while raising his hands in the air and sticking out his tongue. A Liberal Party spokeswoman said the footage was from the early 1990s.
Trudeau said on Thursday that he did not remember the third incident but he understood it was ‘unacceptable’ and that he has enjoyed ‘layers of privilege’ in his life.
Justin Trudeau faced tough questions about the imbroglio despite the crowd at the town hall being stocked with supporters from his ruling Liberal Party
At a town hall meeting in Saskatoon on Thursday night, Trudeau faced tough questions about the imbroglio despite the crowd being stocked with supporters from his ruling Liberal Party.
The 47-year-old Trudeau faces a serious challenge from the opposition Conservative Party in next month’s elections, and his quick apology did not stem the criticism from political opponents.
Conservative leader Andrew Scheer, reacted by declaring Trudeau ‘not fit to govern this country.’
Left-wing New Democrat Party leader Jagmeet Singh, who is a Sikh, added to the criticism.
‘I am deeply troubled by what this means to Canada. Young kids are not just going to see just one or two but multiple images of the prime minister mocking their lived reality,’ said Singh.
‘This is so hurtful to so many Canadians.’
