In a widely publicized exchange, Carlson told fellow hosts Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham, that he "hates Trump passionately” and mocked the former president’s voter fraud claims as “insane.”

Those claims have followed years of right-wing and mainstream media fixating on the president’s age and mental acuity.
