Tucker Carlson Explores the Russia-Hating Heart of Hollywood Royalty (Rob Reiner)

Hollywood heavy Rob Reiner can't really explain why he's hating on Russia so hard

Rob Reiner is Hollywood royalty. His dad is the 95 year old Carl Reiner, a Hollywood kingmaker, comedian, mega-producer, and all around heavy-hitter.

Rob has created some of the funnier moment in American cinema - for years he played the Lefty son-in-law 'Meathead' opposite his conservative, bigoted father-in-law, Archie Bunker in 'All in the Family', and he wrote, directed, and acted in 'This is Spinal Tap' one of the funniest movies ever made.

And now he's pushing a national ad he made, along with a bunch of B-team neocons, (and James Clapper), that is inciting war with Russia. Yesterday I wrote about how it is already backfiring - bigly.

Reiner is good in this rope-a-dope with Carlson from last night. Carlson keeps trying to land punches, and Reiner is just a big lovable teddy bear, except that he is spewing hatred and inciting WW3. All in all Carlson wins in a TKO, but Reiner holds his own.

An enlightening excursion into the Russia-hating core of the Hollywood establishment. 

Here is Reiner's ad, featuring Morgan Freeman, being destroyed by Paul Joseph Watson:

Here is Reiner playing Meathead, classic stuff:

Here's a scene from Spinal Tap:
