Expressing bigoted ideas night after night on TV must take a toll on the mind because Fox News firebrand Tucker Carlson seems to have recently suffered a senior moment on air.

Speaking to bisexual Oregon Gov. Kate Brown, Carlson said that he found it a "little confusing" that she was married to a man, reported The Daily Beast.

The focus of the conversation was actually about Brown enacting mask mandates in outdoor public settings in the wake of a surge in COVID-19 hospitalizations in the state.

"The far-right host suggested that Brown was only elected because she presented herself as a pioneer," reports Daily Beast. In fact, Brown is a pioneer as the first openly bisexual governor in United States history.

"Kate Brown was first elected governor of Oregon all the way back in 2015," Carlson said. "At the time, there was not a whole lot going on in Oregon, so voters did not ask many questions. The one thing they did learn about Kate Brown, over and over again, is that she is a self-described bisexual."

When Brown asked why her sexuality was relevant, "Carlson snidely stated that the media 'did not explain' but instead told the public that Brown's bisexuality was 'historic' and 'highly thrilling.'"

He continued: "And yet, if you looked a little closer, you noticed something a little weird. Actually, Kate Brown was married to a man," he said. "Yes, he had a different last name, but he was still, as they say on TikTok, 'binary.'"

What Carlson might have planned to be a "gotcha" moment ended up being egg on his grumpy face.

"How does having a groom at her wedding make Kate Brown an official member of the LGBTQ exclamation point community? No one bothered to ask," Carlson, thinking aloud.

Who is going to tell him? Head over to The Daily Beast to see the moment for yourself.
