A former Trump White House staffer posted a picture of herself with Tucker Carlson at Donald Trump’s Bedminster Golf Club in New Jersey, raising questions about why the former Fox News host was there.
In a viral tweet, former GOP staffer Mackenzie Rohde posted a grinning photo of herself with the TV host at the New Jersey Golf Club earlier this week.
Since suddenly leaving Fox in April, Carlson has posted a series of lengthy interviews on Twitter — a series his team calls “Tucker on Twitter.”
With his fourth indictment set this week and questions remaining over whether Trump will participate in next week’s first Republican primary debate, questions have been raised as to where he should sit down for an in-depth interview.

Each episode of Carlson’s Twitter show has tens of millions of views, according to Twitter, and guests have ranged from Andrew Tate to Ice Cube to former Hunter Biden business partner Devon Archer and most recently Republican presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy.
Trump, who may or may not attend the upcoming Republican presidential debate in Milwaukee, continues to try to balance his presidential campaign – which is now in full swing – and the mounting legal pressures he is facing.
On Monday night, Trump was indicted for the fourth time by a grand jury in Fulton County, Georgia, in his attempt to overturn the 2020 election results.
District Attorney Fani Willis issued a 41-count indictment charging Trump and 18 of his compatriots with violations of the RICO law and a range of other charges covering the spectrum of election interference.
She said the indictment alleges “violations of Georgian law in a criminal conspiracy to overturn election results in that state.”
Trump called her “a runaway and very corrupt district attorney” and said the indictment was part of a “witch hunt.”
The case – which relies on laws normally used to kill gangsters – is the fourth against the 77-year-old Republican this year and could lead to a turning point, the first televised trial of a former president in history of the USA.
If convicted on all counts, he faces 71 years in prison — and unlike federal charges, state charges cannot be pardoned by a president.
Trump called Willis a “rabid partisan,” but she told a news conference Monday night, “I make decisions in this office based on facts and the law.” The law is nonpartisan.
“We look at the facts, we look at the law and we press charges.”

In a recent biography of Carlson, the TV host extraordinaire revealed that former President Donald Trump ogled the “beer girls” at his golf resort in Bedminster, New Jersey, in a photo showing the two with Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene that went viral went .
Carlson was asked about this image by his biographer Chadwick Moore for the book: Tuckerwhich was released on August 1st.
The trio were filmed watching the LIV Golf Bedminster invitational tournament last July, with Carlson visibly laughing at something the former President had said.
“He was talking about the beer girls,” Carlson recalled. “Look at those beer girls? Can you believe they have legs like that? You can’t make legs like that, it’s genetics! “The human genome explains it,” the former Fox News anchor quoted Trump as saying.
Carlson found the comment hilarious.

Chadwick Moore’s bio reveals what Tucker Carlson (centre) laughed about. Carlson said former President Donald Trump (right) joined Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (left) to discuss the “beer girls” “legs.”
“That’s what he said, and I like that.” You’re telling me something that amuses me terribly. Because it is rooted in truth and unexpected. “I’m the perfect audience for that,” Carlson said.
The TV presenter, who now hosts a show on Twitter, noted that it was his first time participating in a golf tournament – he doesn’t play the sport because “I’m left-handed and don’t have coordination.”
The book, simply titled “Tucker,” was written by journalist Chadwick Moore, who spent 1,000 hours interviewing Carlson at his homes in Maine and Florida
“But like I said, Trump has a moral obligation to entertain the people of his world.” “He’s the patriarch and everyone around him needs to be entertained by him,” Carlson continued. “And I agree that that’s absolutely a boss’s duty and people who don’t live up to it fail at work.”
Responding to some of the negative comments Carlson appeared to have made about Trump, which were uncovered as a result of the lawsuit between Fox News and Dominion Voting Systems, he clarified his point:
“Do I like Trump?” “I love Trump,” Carlson told Moore in one of their sessions after the text messages were revealed. “But Trump has so many layers.” He was a totally ineffective president. He couldn’t manage my household. “He’s not a manager and that’s very frustrating to watch.”
Carlson blamed some of the blame on the people Trump hired.
“So that was very frustrating, extremely frustrating and angry to see his stated agenda being undermined by people who work for him.” It was crazy. “It’s like watching someone’s kids burn down their own house and there’s nothing they can do about it,” Carlson said.
“I really hated watching that and I was angry about it,” he continued to Moore.
Still, Carlson described dining with Trump as “one of the greatest joys in the world.”
“If you were to put together a list of people to have dinner with, Trump would be number one,” Carlson said. “He’s amazing.” He’s a TV character. “He was the number one star on NBC.”
“And how do you get there? By being an incredibly amusing, charming and dynamic human being,” he continued. “Trump is just the absolute best at this level.” So funny, so incredibly eccentric, and hilariously monomaniac. Also so beautiful.’
