And because the Tucker Carlson Tonight host certainly isn’t shy about giving his opinions both on and off screen – sometimes provoking a little controversy as he goes – you may think that you have the total measure of the man. In actual fact, though, there’s more that you may have missed about the political commentator – and some of Carlson’s story could very well surprise you.
