This week The Daily Caller‘s Publisher Neil Patel played a prank on Editor-in-Chief Tucker Carlson by circulating an email to staff with a conked out Carlson. The email included the following orders and accompanying picture:
“Brian Danza and Chris Bedford have volunteered to build a bar for our new party room. Tucker will be assisting them on the project and will be reporting to Danza for this purpose. Tucker sometimes falls asleep on the job so please help Danza and Chris by giving Tucker a little kick if you see it happening again. Thanks.”
When told of the picture, Carlson fully admitted to easily being able to fall asleep in public. Carlson referred to Patel as his “evil business partner” and remarked, “I sleep like a golden retriever, often and in public, so the shot could have been taken anywhere. I don’t care.”
