Tucker Carlson backlash tells us something important about some Trump supporters

(CNN)Traitor. Globalist. Sellout.

Carlson angered some of his audience Thursday when he called out Sidney Powell, President Trump's attorney who has peddled wild conspiracy theories about the 2020 election.

And he pointed out his coverage of the Russia probe and how he never rules anything out — even UFOs. Then Carlson broke the news ever so softly to his viewers: He said that, despite his polite requests, Powell had not provided a shred of evidence to support her outlandish claims and had even told him to stop contacting her.

Powell herself retweeted accounts attacking Carlson, including one that said Carlson had thrown "one of his Fox Globalist directed temper tantrums" and is "owned by The Syndicate. " During a Friday morning appearance on Maria Bartiromo's show, Powell bashed Carlson as "insulting" and "rude. "

Dare to dissent from the Trump camp — even politely and regarding a deranged conspiracy theory — and even someone like Carlson will be attacked and called a traitor.

Carlson went on to say that both he and the White House agreed the election was "not fair" — but he also said that, "like us," they have "not seen a single piece of evidence showing that software changed votes. "
