Tucker Carlson was called out on Twitter Monday for the belittling way he cut off Fox News colleague Juan Williams during a discussion about President Joe Biden, taxes and economic growth.

Carlson, during an appearance on “The Five,” repeatedly yelled “got it, got it, got it” as Williams, a co-host on the show who has in the past attacked ex-President Donald Trump, tried to make a point.

“I’m going to tell you something,” said Williams, attempting to cut through Carlson’s bluster.

“No, you haven’t told me anything actually,” responded Carlson, who in recent weeks has sown doubt about COVID-19 vaccines, peddled anti-immigration rhetoric and accused ex-President Barack Obama of being a “racial arsonist.”

“Not one thing,” Carlson added.

He then emitted a strange, high-pitched laugh.

Carlson then cut to “The Five” co-host Dana Perino.

Critics questioned Carlson’s mocking cackle and suggested why he’d ended the discussion in such a way:

Watching this, it shows that Tucker has absolutely no fear of any reprisals for his behavior at Fox and he's the boss. He can treat any of his co-workers with however much disrespect he deems fit, and nobody can do anything about it.

Demonic laughter…like an imp

Like that creepy giggling he did all through the Jon Stewart interview back in the day? That’s his form of a comeback when he has no point and the toxic fumes of his gasbaggery are oozing from his nostrils.

Tucker's whole schtick is being the stand-in for every old guy who is pissed the world is changing. It's why he constantly looks befuddled while asking, "Why is all of this happening? Why can't things just stay the same?"

Tucker goes into a panic when actual facts are being spoken in front of him.

@TuckerCarlson is the perfect combination of arrogance and ignorance. His response to Juan Williams proves it.

Tucker always laughs when the other person is about to make a point.

Every day, @TheJuanWilliams goes to work with a white supremacist and has to decide, "Is today the day I call @TuckerCarlson a white supremacist on camera?" Apparently, it was not today but you gotta figure it's coming. https://t.co/bZQDFxRbz9

Tucker is scared. The polls show that the American people are approving of what Biden is doing, especially compared to what the former president did. He knows what side of history he chose. He should be scared. History will judge him harshly.

Watching Tucker Carlson demean & denigrate Juan Williams on "The Five" just for telling the truth about GDP growth, is yet another reminder of how much of a White Supremacist Tucker Carlson really is.

Typically on these Fox panel set ups, there's a better display of civility where they only speak during their time and, for the most part, stay silent while others are speaking. But Tucker Carlson is used to acting as Supreme Jerk on air. Of course he'd target Williams, too.

Carlson hasn’t had to defend himself on-air in 5 yrs the way Juan Williams made him defend himself tonight didn’t go well for Carlson and I guarantee he’ll refuse to appear on The Five going forward
