Tucker Carlson Denies Avenatti’s Claim of Alleged 'Assault on Gay Latino Immigrant'

Stormy Daniels lawyer Michael Avenatti said he was investigating “an alleged assault on a gay latino immigrant” by Tucker Carlson at a Virginia country club.

Carlson issued a statement denying the assault and claiming the man lobbed insults at his daughter:
“On October 13, I had dinner with two of my children and some family friends at the Farmington Country Club in Charlottesville, Virginia. Toward the end of the meal, my 19-year-old daughter went to the bathroom with a friend. On their way back through the bar, a middle aged man stopped my daughter and asked if she was sitting with Tucker Carlson. My daughter had never seen the man before. She answered: ‘That’s my dad,’ and pointed to me. The man responded, ‘Are you Tucker’s whore?’ He then called her a ‘fucking cunt.’

My daughter returned to the table in tears. She soon left the table and the club. My son, who is also a student, went into the bar to confront the man. I followed. My son asked the man if he’d called his sister a ‘whore’ and a ‘cunt.’ The man admitted he had, and again become profane. My son threw a glass of red wine in the man’s face and told him to leave the bar, which he soon did.

Immediately after the incident, I described these events to the management of the Farmington Country Club. The club spent more than three weeks investigating the incident. Last week, they revoked the man’s membership and threw him out of the club.

I love my children. It took enormous self-control not to beat the man with a chair, which is what I wanted to do. I think any father can understand the overwhelming rage and shock that I felt seeing my teenage daughter attacked by a stranger. But I restrained myself. I did not assault this man, and neither did my son. That is a lie. Nor did I know the man was gay or Latino, not that it would have mattered. What happened on October 13 has nothing to do with identity politics. It was a grotesque violation of decency. I’ve never seen anything like it in my life.”
Avenatti posted these tweets:

Of note, recently Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley referred Avenatti and a woman he represents to the Justice Department and the FBI for criminal investigation, claiming they made potentially false statements to Congress about Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh and alleged sexual misconduct.

  1. Ticket in the same statement writes "My son threw a glass of red wine in the man’s face" & then

    "I did not assault this man, and neither did my son."

    Very very dumb, first of all, to admit anything.

    Does he not know the legal definition of "assault"?

    What would happen if one of the "mob" on tucker's porch threw a liquid in his face? Would that not be "assault"?

    What if anyone reading this threw any liquid in any cop or politician's face?

    What do you think would happen to them?

    Would they be charged with anything (if they lived?)

  2. On the other hand, Tucker likely could have punched the guy & got away with it, although he probably would have been sued for civil liability & paid a settlement.

    Chaplinsky v. New Hampshire, 315 U.S. 568 (1942),[1] is a United States Supreme Court case in which the Court articulated the fighting words doctrine, a limitation of the First Amendment's guarantee of freedom of speech.

    1. Nowadays in our politically-correct word, the Left views everything said on Fox News as "fighting words."

  3. So much for “dems fightin woids”.
    Good for Tucker holding back I guess, while I don’t think I would have done anything in the bar, if that would have been my daughter, I certainly would have had a visit with him when he left and beat him. Hard. Then let my sons beat him.
