Former White House press secretary turned MSNBC host Jen Psaki took a swipe at Fox News host Tucker Carlson on Monday night, saying recent court filings show the conservative firebrand does not respect his viewers.

“I had about 20 seconds where I thought … Tucker Carlson, maybe he’s one of us,” Psaki said during an appearance on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.” “And then, by second 21, I thought, wait, he is intentionally sharing disinformation with his audiences and treating them like they are stupid, frankly, so that he can save his job, save viewers and make money.”

The former Biden spokeswoman had been asked about revelations made in recent court filings about top Fox hosts and executives as part of a $1.6 billion defamation lawsuit the network is facing from Dominion Voting Systems over unfounded claims about the 2020 election. The Dominion filings show Fox stars including Carlson, Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham dismissing former President Trump’s false claims of voter fraud privately but worrying how fact-checking those claims on the air might upset their audience.

Colbert said, “It’s not surprising, but it is unsettling to hear about.”

She responded, “It’s a little bit more than unsettling, wouldn’t you say? I’ve watched you — I know you’re more than unsettled.”

Psaki noted that “it wasn’t a shock to me” that Fox News was sharing disinformation. “I mean, we know that with our own eyes.”

She continued, “I am horrified by the disinformation, but the fact that they knowingly did it, that is what I think is, in my view, the most problematic.”

The Late Show tweeted Monday, “Former WH Press Secretary @jrpsaki is horrified by the intentional dissemination of misinformation within Fox News. #Colbert”

Writer Alex Christy tweeted a different clip from the interview and wrote, “Comedy actually happened on The Late Show, albeit unintentionally as Jen Psaki told Stephen Colbert, ‘MSNBC has a very high standard of what is factual. You have to go through a process before you report things on air to make sure they are factual and you have sources.'”
