Tucker Carlson Gripes About Plus-Size Model: 'Keep Politics Out Of My Swimsuit Issue'

Fox News host Tucker Carlson complained on Sunday that the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue had become too "political" because the 2016 edition includes plus-size models.

Fox News host Tucker Carlson complained on Sunday that the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue had become too "political" because the 2016 edition includes plus-size models.

The magazine announced over the weekend the Swimsuit edition would feature three different covers with models who have different body types: Ronda Rousey, Ashley Graham, and Hailey Clauson.

Fox News host Sandra Smith noted on Sunday that the magazine had been praised for including different body types, and co-host Clayton Morris pointed to Graham as the "plus size" model.

"Does it really need to be political?" Carlson whined. "You know what I mean? Politics now in the swimsuit issue. That is disgusting."

"Says the most politically energized man I know," Smith shot back.

"Keep it out of my swimsuit issue," Carson griped.

In a later segment, Carson admitted that the three women "don't look so different to me."

"So, she's plus size?" co-host Clayton Morris added. "Who cares. That looks fantastic."

"They all look beautiful," Smith agreed.

"Do you know any man that like stick thin women?" Morris wondered before moving on.
