CNN's Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon eviscerated Fox's Tucker Carlson Tuesday night over Carlson's recent racist remarks about immigrants.

Carlson last week claimed immigrants made the United States "poorer and dirtier," prompting advertisers to pull their support of his show, Tucker Carlson Tonight.


Spurred by public outcry, advertisers like Career Builder and IHOP began dropping like flies.

IHOP said of its decision:

"We stand for welcoming folks from all backgrounds and beliefs into our restaurants and continually evaluate ad placements to ensure they align with our values."

Just for Men echoed the sentiments:

"Just for Men has no further plans to advertise on Tucker Carlson's show. The brand is always considering ways to remain responsible, and this includes aligning with partners who share our brand value."

Seventeen other advertisers followed suit, with Twitter commending them for it—and blistering the ones who remain.

Cuomo and Lemon also called out Carlson's comments.

Watch below:

“Is he really talking about human beings that way?” Cuomo asked. “I don’t ordinarily play hateful speech on the show, but it’s important for people to see what someone’s trying to pass off as news.”

Lemon savaged Fox News as “the CNN, MSNBC criticism channel” that “almost always” airs something those networks "hate, and they hate because we’re actually talking about real news and the Mueller investigation and what’s actually going on.” Lemon said he refrains from disparaging other anchors because of "glass houses," meaning that "one day it could be you or me," referring to Cuomo.

Lemon added that TV personalities should not be "boycotted for something they should do that's a one-off." But when a platform is used "comprehensively" to spread hate and fear, it needs to be met with "truth, journalism, and telling people what is real and what is not."

Lemon said Fox is full of "opinion journalists" who "don't have to abide by" the same rules.

"For the most part," Lemon said, "Tucker Carlson uses his platform to demonize immigrants almost on a nightly basis; to demonize this network almost on a nightly basis; to spread false information, misinformation, to spread the president's lies, to cover the president's back, to carry his water on a nightly basis."

Carlson's remarks about immigrants were "completely false," Lemon charged. "We're all better" because of immigration, he said.

"Diversity is our greatest strength," said Cuomo. Carlson is not "my colleague," adding that "it's worse" if Carlson says outrageous things merely for ratings than if he really believed his own claims.

Cuomo concluded the segment by reminding Lemon that while he does not want to give Carlson's hateful rhetoric additional attention, "we gotta call it out."

President Donald Trump has set the tone, and Carlson's comments were nothing short of racist.

Others pointed out that Carlson, as part of the Fox News brand, is not news, but rather, entertainment.

Facts and truth matter.

Fox is toxic.

Be best, Tuck.

After three years in office, President Donald Trump's average approval rating has never risen above 50 percent.

While he enjoys a high approval rating among the Republican party, a new hashtag trending on Twitter is highlighting those who were so repulsed by him that they left the party all together.

The hashtag #ILeftTheGOP, apparently started by former Conservative writer Cheri Jacobus, shot to one of the top trends on Twitter.

Just one day after President Donald Trump's lawyers insisted during his Senate impeachment trial that the President did nothing wrong, reporting from the New York Times made the job of defending Trump even more difficult.

The Times reported on the upcoming memoir from Trump's former National Security Advisor John Bolton, which asserts that President Trump sought to withhold $391 million in congressionally approved aid from Ukraine until its President announced an investigation into his potential 2020 rival, former Vice President Joe Biden.

If true, Bolton's assertion would confirm previous second-hand testimony regarding the existence of a quid pro quo in Trump's dealings with Ukraine.

In December, President Donald Trump established the United States Space Force, a sixth branch of the United States Army.

The goal of the force is to protect United States assets in outer space from foreign rivals and is slated to cost around $2 billion in the next five years.

Today, Trump unveiled the official logo for the Space Force, but people think it bears a striking resemblance to another iconic symbol.

People were stunned this past July when President Donald Trump tweeted that four Congresswomen of color—Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA)—should "go back" to where they came from.

He also falsely claimed they "originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe..."

Three of the Congresswomen were born in the United States. Omar was a refugee from Somalia. All are Americans.

At a campaign rally days later in North Carolina, President Donald Trump mentioned Congresswoman Omar—and got a strong reaction from the crowd.

While bigotry is common at a Trump rally, it became even more blatant when Trump's supporters began chanting "Send her back," echoing the calls from Trump's tweet for them to "go back" to where they came from.

As Democratic House impeachment managers make their case against President Donald Trump, one of his favorite news networks is going to lengths to keep the bevy of evidence against him from reaching their viewers' ears.

At first, Fox News tried scrolling Trump's so-called accomplishments alongside live video of the historic proceedings. Now, the network's latest attempt to distract from the Democrats' arguments is raising eyebrows even higher.
