Tucker Carlson is being called out for making very contradictory statements about Representative Dan Crenshaw (R-TX)
On Monday night's episode of Tucker Carlson Tonight, Carlson, 53, mocked Crenshaw for supporting a $40 billion aid package for Ukraine, calling him 'eyepatch McCain'.
“You know, the more I think about it, it takes a lot of gall for eyepatch McCain to attack moms who are worried about baby formula as pro-Russia,” Carlson said.
Crenshaw criticized people on the right who are arguing the government should focus on the baby formula shortage rather than giving aid to Ukraine, calling the argument "very depressing" and "almost pro-Russia". Crenshaw said the baby formula shortage is a manufacturing issue, not a money issue.

"Actor Pete Davidson mocked [Dan Crenshaw] as 'one of the gross people running for office this year' he added 'I'm sorry I know he lost his eye in war or whatever'," Carlson explained in 2018. "Yeah, so that's their position, and they're not hiding it anymore. Useful for you to know."
Tucker Carlson was furious when SNL made a joke about Dan Crenshaw. But last night, he mocked the fact that the veteran lost his eye in combat, calling him 'Eyepatch McCain.' What does that tell you?pic.twitter.com/Uvq22pXtaD
Tucker Carlson calls Dan Crenshaw \u2018Eye-Patch McCain\u2019. Where is the outrage. Remember when the right wing was outraged Pete Davidson of SNL made fun of a veteran's injury? That veteran, Dan Crenshaw. By the way, I don\u2019t care for Crenshaw\u2019s politics.
Remember when the Right got upset about Pete Davidson joking about Rep. Crenshaw\u2019s eyepatch? Where is the outrage when Tucker Carlson does the same? Crenshaw made sense about Ukraine and baby formula.
Crenshaw, a former Navy SEAL, lost his right eye in 2012 after he was hit by an IED in Afghanistan.
I have had plenty of *policy* disagreements with @DanCrenshawTX but I have never have questioned his patriotism. Just stunning to see Fox News tee off on a wounded veteran. Tucker Carlson isn\u2019t man enough to give a finger nail for this country. Dan lost an eye. Case closed.https://twitter.com/jonkarl/status/1526378995969044481\u00a0\u2026

In response to the nickname, Crenshaw told The Daily Caller that it was a 'juvenile insult'.
“You hurl juvenile insults when you know you’ve lost the debate. I stand by every word I said in my interview with Trey Gowdy," Crenshaw told The Daily Caller.
