Tucker Carlson basks in Jennifer Lawrence’s nightmares

Fox News host Tucker Carlson on Tuesday again mocked Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence, who recently revealed that she’s talking to her therapist about nightmares she’s having about the divisive TV personality.

Those nightmares, she said in Vogue’s October issue, are fueled by Carlson’s influence over her estranged family members, who are conservative and live in her hometown of Louisville, Kentucky because the “information they get is different” and “their that Life is different” than that of the 32-year-old actor.

The Tucker Carlson Tonight host, 53, followed up on the mention of his name by one of Hollywood’s biggest stars addressed it on the air.

“When you decide to work in television, you lose control of a lot of things. Especially the way other people perceive you,” Carlson said. “So it can really be your fault, are you really responsible if big Hollywood stars dream about you?

“Maybe it’s the sexy glasses,” he said flatly, pausing to put on glasses. “Who knows? We can only speculate.”

The Hunger Games and X-Men actor, who is a former Republican, said the election of Donald Trump in 2016 divided her family. And the family wounds she has since tried to mend were reopened in June by the Supreme Court’s reversal of the historic Roe vs. Wade abortion rights case. The pregnant star was among the many who took to the streets to protest the decision and said her disappointment was directed at certain relatives with whom she has been trying to reconcile since the arrival of her son Cy.

“I’ve just worked so hard over the last five years to forgive my father and my family and try to understand: It’s different. The information they receive varies. Her life is different,” she said in the emotional Vogue interview.

“I’ve been trying to get over it and I really can’t. I can not. I’m sorry for just unleashing myself, but I can’t f—do with people who aren’t political anymore. You live in the United States of America. You have to be political. It’s too bad. Politics kills people,” she added.

The ‘Silver Linings Playbook’ and ‘American Hustle’ star also told Vogue that she will continue to ‘text’ her family about politics: ‘Just: Boom. Boom. Boom. Boom. Boom. You don’t react. And then I feel bad and send a picture of the baby.”

Carlson didn’t delve into these issues beyond his initial quip (though he said he was “flattered”), instead blaming correspondent Trace Gallagher for his “hard-hitting coverage of the subject” and for highlighting the “dichotomy” Lawrence made in comments for their nocturnal viewers.

“It’s important to note that while Jennifer Lawrence sees you in her head at night … she’s probably not watching you now,” Gallagher told Carlson. “But her parents are probably watching you because they’re fans.”

Gallagher then amassed and dug up a section from 2017 in which Carlson joked that Lawrence suffered from “Trump derangement syndrome” and how she made headlines for threatening the former president for a series of hurricanes in 2017 held responsible.

Indeed, Lawrence has been an outspoken critic of the conservatives and Trumps, whom she repeatedly calls “jug mayonnaise,” and reiterated those views in her Vogue interview, which also discussed abortion rights and gun laws. (The star notably took a break from her busy acting career in 2018 to work on advocacy and “fix our democracy.”)

“I’m raising a little boy who will go to school one day. Guns are the number one killer of children in the United States. And people still vote for politicians who get money from the NRA. It blows my mind,” she said. “I mean, if Sandy Hook didn’t change anything? We as a nation just left OK! We allow our children to lay down their lives for our right to a Second Amendment written over 200 years ago.”

The Causeway star also shared that she had two miscarriages before having Cy. First, she became pregnant in her early 20s and decided to terminate the pregnancy, but “miscarried alone in Montreal” before doing anything. She then got pregnant again after marrying art gallery owner Cooke Maroney and filming Don’t Look Up a few years ago, but that pregnancy also ended in miscarriage and required a surgical procedure known as D&C.

“I remember thinking about it a million times during my pregnancy. I thought about the things that were happening to my body. And I had a great pregnancy. I had a very happy pregnancy. But every single second of my life was different. And sometimes I thought, what if I was forced to do that?” she said, referring to pregnant people who aren’t allowed to make choices without government oversight.
