Carson starts stuttering and throwing incoherent one-word insults at Bregman as soon as the conversation takes an unexpected turn.


Watch Fox News host Tucker Carlson call one of his guests a 'tiny brain...moron' during an interview. NowThis has obtained the full segment with historian Rutger Bregman that Fox News is refusing to air.
