Giuliani legal camp calls Tucker Carlson a ‘globalist’ that is ‘owned by the syndicate’
So Rudy Giuliani had a media briefing today. There was a lot there. But, whatever you may think of the substance of the thing, I just want to focus on how the Trump campaign to overturn the election results has turned on the Daily Caller.
There’s no surprise that Giuliani and company would mock CNN, everyone expects that:
Giuliani: “What publication are you with?”

And they have it in for Fox News too, that’s not surprising at all. But I found it interesting that Giuliani lashed out at the Daily Caller, which has been pretty supportive of Trump:
GIULIANI attempts to call on @TocRadio of the Daily Caller, who is heckled by an unidentified female reporter who earlier described herself as "completely independent."
GIULIANI: One last question…
DATOC: I'm from the Daily Caller

Giuliani rips into the Daily Caller reporter for “dragging out” the case for their claims.
Then later, on Tucker Carlson’s show, he appears to criticize Sidney Powell, one of the big-time lawyers who has said that Trump won a landslide and the election was stolen from him.
Tucker Carlson calls out Sidney Powell, saying he asked her for evidence to support her election fraud claims, but "she never sent us any evidence despite a lot of requests, polite requests, not a page."

Carlson says that she hasn’t provided any evidence at all that one single vote was changed by the ballot machine software from Biden’s column to Trump’s column. But he’s hopeful that she might.
She didn’t seem to be very happy about what Carlson said. Here’s what she responded:
In response to this @TuckerCarlson segment tonight, @SidneyPowell1 Powell tells me “Apparently Mr. Carlson missed the news conference today. I would continue to encourage him and all journalists to review all the materials we have provided so far… https://t.co/9FHZo8B7wM pic.twitter.com/0yY4Rvze0i

Here’s the statement:
“Apparently Mr. Carlson missed the news conference today. I would continue to encourage him and all journalists to review all the materials we have provided so far and conduct their own investigations. Evidence continues to pour in, but a 5 minute television hit is not my focus now. Collecting evidence and preparing the case are my top priorities.”
And then a Daily Caller reporter says this:
He offered an hour https://t.co/0rIxZ3IZOB

Which, Tucker indeed said he did, in the segment. So it doesn’t quite make sense for her to respond as if he was being unfair.
Then Powell really unloads:
Sidney Powell just retweeted this tweet accusing Tucker Carlson of throwing "one of his Fox Globalist directed temper tantrums" and of being "some guy who is owned by The Syndicate." pic.twitter.com/mhtE91V7Du

Soooo why the nutty ire? Carlson wasn’t even saying she was wrong. He said he was hopeful that she might have some evidence to prove the massive conspiracy she is alleging that would completely overturn our entire Democratic tradition. But, because he said on his show that she hasn’t produced any evidence of her claims, she turns on him and rips into him for being a “globalist,” which is about the worst most evil epithet that can be made on Tucker Carlson’s show. Kinda weird.
Here’s the entire press conference with Giuliani and his crew:
