Meyers continued to dismantle Powell’s strange conspiracy theories that somehow link late Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez to the Republican governor of Georgia. “And he wonders that he kept refusing to give evidence of this huge plan when he pushed it,” he said. “Even the friendly Fox News presenters, who basically longed to agree with him, as long as he can provide a piece of evidence.”
Among Fox’s presenters was Tucker Carlson, who explained to viewers last week that Powell, also a well-known conspiracy theorist for QAnon, told him to stop contacting him after asking for evidence of foreigners ’allegations. “Wow, you know you’re in a whole, junky area when not even Tucker Carlson will go along with what you’re selling.
