Tucker Carlson recently appeared on the Tulsi Gabbard podcast.
One of the things he talked about was how his opinion of Trump changed during the 2015 campaign.
It’s all about Trump asking questions that no one else in Washington is asking.
This has also changed many people’s views on Trump.

TUCKER CARLSON: I have nothing against the system at all. What really changed me was watching Trump play in 2015. I knew Trump before because I worked in the media, so I knew Trump for 15 years — a long time ago. I thought he was a clown. Sometimes I still think so. But it wasn’t Trump that changed my opinion, it was my neighbor’s reaction to Trump.
So Trump will say something in his flashy orange way. Like, “Why are we funding NATO?” That’s what fascinates me. I never questioned NATO because I grew up during the Cold War and NATO was the bulwark against the Soviet invasion of Western Europe. My dad works for the government so we’re all for NATO, why don’t we? But it ended in August 1991, I was on my honeymoon when the USSR collapsed, but we still have NATO in 2015? What’s the point?
I never thought about it in my life. Trump said, “Why are we funding NATO?” I think that’s a very interesting question. I do not know why. What is the answer?
My neighbor said, “Shut up! He has to be killed!”
Well, maybe shut up, he has to be killed, but what is the answer to the question?
Why do we fund NATO? Is there a good reason? “Shut up!”
It was a hint to me that they were so hysterical about obvious and basic common sense questions about how things work. In fact, I was stunned by it.

As usual, Tucker’s gist.
