Fox News host Tucker Carlson called the Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman, Gen. Mark Milley, a “pig” and “stupid” on Thursday.

Carlson claimed that the general got his job because he was “obsequious” towards his superiors at the White House.

“He’s not just a pig; he’s stupid,” Carlson said.

During his show on Thursday night, Carlson was talking about Milley’s remarks to a House committee the day before.

On Wednesday, the general told the House Armed Services Committee that he is learning about the “white rage” that led to the insurrection on January 6.

“I want to understand white rage, and I’m white,” Milley said during the hearing.

Carlson claimed that Milley was just reading a script to please his superiors so that he can maintain his job.

“Mark Milley is the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. He didn’t get that job because he’s brilliant, or because he’s brave, or because the people who know him respect him,” Carlson said. “He is not, and they definitely don’t. Milley got the job because he is obsequious. He knows who to suck up to, and he’s more than happy to do it. Feed him a script and he will read it.”
