Fox News host Tucker Carlson made a direct plea to President Donald Trump Wednesday night on his show to pardon longtime Trump ally and dirty trickster Roger Stone.
During a monologue midway through the show, Carlson didn’t hold back stating, “the president must pardon Roger Stone or commute his sentence before he goes to jail,” adding that he and viewers will be watching.
Trump stated Tuesday in the Oval Office that Stone’s prosecution was “ridiculous” and “horrible.”
Carlson began the segment by outlining that Stone, 67, has no criminal record and was only found guilty of lying. The Fox host further claimed that Stone’s sentence far exceeds the amount of time spent in prison by rapists and armed robbers.
