Tucker Carlson is one of the biggest supporters of Donald Trump’s agenda.

But Carlson took everyone by surprise with his take on the 2024 election.

And Tucker Carlson revealed the one reason he thinks Trump can never be president.

Tucker Carlson agreed with Barstool Sports founder Dave Portnoy that Donald Trump is too old to be president again.

That revelation came during an interview where Portnoy told Carlson he thought Trump should have shown up at the first GOP presidential debate in Milwaukee.

“I thought he should’ve done the debate,” Portnoy stated.

Portnoy explained he thought it would be good for the country to see Trump confront his rivals and affirmatively make the case as to why he should be the next president.

“To become president, I think it was the right move not to do it, but for the betterment of the country, I think he should be on the debate,” Portnoy declared.

Carlson agreed, but said he understood why Trump skipped the debate over what he saw as Fox News Channel’s biased coverage.

“I kind of agree. I like the debates, personally. The problem is that the news companies that host the debates are so rotten and corrupt, and everybody knows it. The whole thing is rotten and corrupt,” Carlson responded.

While claiming not to be a political person Portnoy did astutely point out that in recent weeks the media is starting to devote substantial coverage to the fact that Joe Biden’s age is a major issue in the 2024 election and that Biden’s cognitive decline could make him unelectable.

Portnoy added that is why you hear whispers of Democrats warming up other candidates like California Governor Gavin Newsom in the bullpen.

“I don’t know, I’m not a political person, but I feel like there’s been a shift where, internally, maybe the Democrats don’t think he can win and they’re setting the stage to do somebody else,” Portnoy continued.

The shift in coverage that Portnoy pointed out was highlighted by an AP-NORC poll showing 77 percent of Americans believe the 81-year-old Biden is too old to serve as president.

Even though polls show voters do not think Trump’s age is an issue Portnoy told Carlson he thinks the 77-year-old Trump is also too old to be president.

“To be honest, I think both Trump and Biden are too old. I don’t think you should be able to be that old to be president,” Portnoy exclaimed.

To the shock of Trump supporters Carlson nodded in assent.

“I agree 100%,” Carlson agreed.

But Portnoy made it clear his issue with Trump is just about him wanting a new generation of leaders and not Trump’s cognitive abilities as Portnoy added, “I think Biden has got some serious dementia issues.”

Carlson never explained what he meant about thinking Trump is too old and if that meant he would endorse someone else for president which left Trump supporters wondering what Carlson meant by that comment.
