On Wednesday night, a 20-person leftist mob showed up at the home of Fox News host Tucker Carlson to chant threats, call him a racist, and demand the host leave town.
In an interview with The Washington Post, Carlson revealed that at least one member of the “anti-fascist” group threw himself into the host’s front door repeatedly to the point that the door cracked.
“I called my wife,” Carlson told The Washington Post. He was prepping for his show “Tucker Carlson Tonight” when he caught wind of the incident via text message.
“She had been in the kitchen alone getting ready to go to dinner and she heard pounding on the front door and screaming,” he continued. “Someone started throwing himself against the front door and actually cracked the front door.”
His wife, who was the only person home at the time of the ambush, initially thought it was a home invasion after hearing the screaming and banging on the door. She locked herself in their pantry and called the police, Carlson said.
Mrs. Carlson did not immediately contact her husband “because she didn’t want to distract him before he went on air,” the host told Fox News.
Authorities arrived on scene and the leftists “eventually scattered,” though it remains unclear if any arrests were made, notes Fox.
Carlson and his wife have four young children; none of them were home during the incident.
