Fox News’ Tucker Carlson to Interview Caitlyn Jenner on First 8PM Show


Caitlyn Jenner will be Tucker Carlson’s first guest as the Fox News host settles into a new 8pm Eastern time slot beginning Monday.

The high-profile interview marks Carlson’s first night in the time slot previously held by Bill O’Reilly, who was fired by the network Wednesday amid a series of sexual harassment allegations.

Jenner is promoting a new memoir, Secrets of My Life, that reportedly details, among other things, the former Olympian’s $20,000 sex reassignment surgery.

Jenner, Fox News confirmed, will address President Donald Trump — who the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star voted for — and the current political climate.

The 67-year-old, formerly known as Bruce, seemed to sour on Trump, insisting Friday in an interview with Diane Sawyer that it would be a “deal-breaker” if the president and the Republican Party violated the rights of transgender people.

“Here’s the deal: Yes, I did vote for Trump, but here’s the deal-breaker with the Republican party and the deal-breaker is you mess with my community, you do the wrong thing with my community, you don’t give us equality and a fair shot, I’m coming after you,” Jenner said in a preview clip from the upcoming 20/20 interview.

Tucker Carlson Tonight airs Monday in its new time at 8:00p.m. EST.
