New York City Councilman Corey Johnson, a Democrat, was on Tucker Carlson Tonighton Tuesday to talk about a bill that wouldcompel Trump to release his tax returns.
But hours after a report surfaced that Trump had asked James Comey, then director of the FBI,to shut down an investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn, Carlson wanted Johnson to talk about issues much closer to home.
Its OK if you dont like Trump. Im not mad about that, Carlson said. But how about filling some potholes and arresting some public urinators. Seriously!
Carlson said Johnsons law would amount to an abuse of power, since its aimed at an individual, but then the host took aim at Penn Station, which is in Johnsons district.
Have you been in Penn Station recently? Carlson asked. Its like a homeless shelter. Its disgusting.
Im serious. I go there every week. And thats yours? Penn Station is yours? And youre worrying about Trumps tax returns? Are you joking? Have you been in the mens room there? Dead serious question: Have you been in the mens room in Penn Station?
I am focused on all the issues that affect my district, Johnson said after some cross-talk.
Wait a minute. What? an incredulous Carlson replied.
Youre the one that brought up mens rooms, not me, Johnson shot back as the two talked over each other, which led to more cross-talk, with Carlson yelling about bathrooms as Johnson attempted to discuss Trumps tax returns.
One last thing. I know we have to go. We need an independent prosecutor, thats what we need, Johnson concluded.
First we need clean mens rooms at Penn Station, Carlson said. And youre the guy in charge of that.
