Host Greg Gutfield added his own thoughts on the viral incident.
“I find it very frustrating that grown men are now becoming mean girls. He could have come up to you and actually spoke out and you could have had a conversation. But he couldn’t do that without someone filming it, because he knew if he had someone to film it, it would influence your reaction, and you know that as a wise person in the media.’
Carlson then spoke of “the bigger problem.”
“If I leave it all out, the bigger problem is that the mountain states have been completely invaded by the people who devastated California,” Carlson began.
“What’s so interesting is that it’s the very same people who teach you about diversity day and night, and it’s so important, and you’re a racist and so on. And then they run – they literally run into the hills, away from diversity. The hills suffer greatly when they do that. I’ll leave it at that,” Carlson explained.

Bailey grins broadly, while Carlson seems more withdrawn and whispers, “My daughter is here,” to which Bailey says, “I don’t care, man. You are the worst person that man knows. I want you to know that.’
In response, Carlson says. ‘I appreciate that. I appreciate that.’
Bailey continues, “What you’ve done to everyone else in this state, the United States, everyone else in this world. What you’ve done to families, what you’ve done to everyone else in this world. I don’t care that your daughter is here. What you’ve done to people’s families –’

As he talks, Carlson notices that he is being recorded on a camera and grins.
The Fox News host says, “Sit down son,” to which Bailey says, “Son? Don’t call me son,” before Carlson walks off with Bailey trying to follow him as the video ends.
Bailey captioned the video: “This man has killed more people with vaccine misinformation, he has supported extreme racism, he is a fascist and is doing more to tear this country apart than anyone who calls himself an American.”
The video caught the eye on Bailey’s now-deactivated Instagram account which otherwise seemed apolitical and was filled with photos of him hunting and fishing.
Bailey has now deleted herself from Instagram along with the video
