Tucker Carlson Grills Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson On Veto Of Bill Banning Gender Hormones For Transgender Kids

FNC’s Tucker Carlson grilled Arkansas Republican Gov. Asa Hutchinson about his decision to veto legislation that would ban gender hormones, surgeries for transgender youth. The state legislature overrode Hutchinson’s veto.

“With respect,” Carlson said. “It doesn’t sound like you have studied it very deeply. I mean, this is an emerging field. There’s not a lot of research. But the research that exists suggests the depression and the urge to self-harm and suicide is a component, it’s a side effect of taking these hormones.”

“I signed pro-life bills. I sign many bills that would be looked at as very conservative. But this is one that crosses the line. There is no need for it,” Hutchinson said.

“You are not familiar,” Carlson continued. “You were told by doctors that it’s a good idea and you went with it.”
