  • Tucker Carlson says so many people shout curse words at him in public that it’s nearly impossible for him to eat out.
  • Carlson, who hosts Fox News’s prime-time show “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” says he has coped by finding one place where he can eat in peace. He didn’t name it.
  • He told the National Review podcast “The Jamie Weinstein Show” in an episode released Monday that “having someone scream, ‘F— you!’ at a restaurant, it just wrecks your meal.”

The Fox News host Tucker Carlson says he all but can’t go to restaurants in Washington, DC, anymore because he gets “yelled at” by other diners, sometimes profanely.

Speaking with the National Review’s podcast “The Jamie Weinstein Show” in an episode released Monday, Carlson said, “I don’t feel threatened, but having someone scream, ‘F— you!’ at a restaurant, it just wrecks your meal.”

He told the host Jamie Weinstein: “I can’t really go to a lot of restaurants anymore because I get yelled at.”

Carlson said there was only one restaurant he still visited regularly. “I go there because I love it and nobody hassles me,” he said.

“I can’t wait for this revolution to end, so I can go back out to dinner.”

In the interview, Carlson also discussed his early support for the Iraq War, praised what he described as President Donald Trump’s “bravery,” spoke about his new book, “Ship of Fools,” and gave his view on the state of US politics.
