Greg Norman: I Don’t Care What Some American Fans Think of LIV GOLF

Fox News host Tucker Carlson welcomed LIV Golf CEO and commissioner Greg Norman onto Monday’s edition of “Tucker Carlson Tonight.” 

After the tournament at Trump National Golf Club Bedminster, Norman spoke with Carlson about what’s next for them and controversial topics surrounding the tour. 

One of the conversations that Norman had with Carlson was over the tour’s backing from Saudi Arabia and whether sponsors would consider dropping golfers due to their participation in LIV Golf’s tournaments. 

Norman quickly pointed to the PGA Tour as an organization that does business with Saudi Arabia, saying it would be hypocritical to see sponsors drop golfers. 

“The PGA Tour, I think, has about 27 sponsors on the PGA Tour do 40-plus-billion dollars worth of business on an annual basis in Saudi Arabia,” Norman told Carlson. “Now, why doesn’t the PGA Tour call the CEOs of each one of those organizations, ‘sorry, we can’t do business with you because you’re doing business with Saudi Arabia?’

“Why are they picking on the professional golfers? Why? The male professional golfers? Females, the LPGA Tour is sponsored by Aramco, right?”

Nonetheless, Norman added that he doesn’t care what the average American gold fan thinks about LIV Golf, saying that their plan is geared toward the younger generation. 

“I really don’t care, quite honestly,” Norman said. “I just love the game of golf so much. And I just want to grow the game of golf. And we at LIV see that opportunity.”

“We at LIV see it not just for the men, but for the women. We at LIV see it for NCAA and younger generations. We at LIV see it as a pathway to opportunities for these kids to experience a new world out there. LIV is the future of golf.”

    Aw, poor Tucker and Greggie are butt-hurt over Americans turning their backs on Trump’s terrorist Saudi golf tournament, while Joe Biden is out there killing terrorists from that same country.

    Sad!

    I don’t care what SOME Americans think … blah blah blah..

    Hence the problem, these fascists are so busy trying to divide and conquer that they look at their very own neighbors and even family, as enemies. People like Tucker RELISH in creating such a divide. it really is quite gross and downright evil.

Greg Gutfeld Executive Producer: We Won’t Be Wall-to-Wall Republican National Convention Just Because We’re in Milwaukee

“If there’s the kind of pop culture stuff that we do in the back half, we’ll still do that.”

Fox News is taking its entire primetime lineup to Milwaukee for the upcoming Republican National Convention. And while Greg Gutfeld will be on location, that doesn’t mean the convention will be the only topic of conversation.

Gutfeld! will air at 11 PM ET — an hour later than its usual time — during the convention to make way for a special news program hosted by Bret Baier and Martha MacCallum.

But the late-night show will be in the Wisconsin city speaking with a panel of usual guests. And with that usual cast of characters means that the content of the program isn’t likely to change from its usual format.

“It’s people who Greg loves and has good chemistry with,” Executive Producer Tom O’Connor told TVNewser. “I don’t think it’ll be wall-to-wall RNC coverage for the whole hour, either. If there’s the kind of pop culture stuff that we do in the back half, we’ll still do that. That’s stuff that Greg always wants to talk about.”

O’Connor added that “It was an easy decision” to move Gutfeld! to Milwaukee for the Republican National Convention. He continued by noting that Greg Gutfeld being more comfortable as the host of the show allows for more on-location programs.

Tucker Carlson has been off TV since his April 2023 ouster from Fox News. That’s about to change with the launch of an app for his Tucker Carlson Network.

In an email to subscribers, the Tucker Carlson Network revealed “Our team has spent months developing the new TCN TV app, and it’s about to go live. When this app is released, you’ll be able to watch Tucker on your TV at any time.

The Tucker Carlson Network app will join a growing field of smart TV apps in recent months. Nearly every network news outlet has a free, ad-supported TV streaming app with products like NBC News Now, ABC Live, and the recently rebranded CBS News 24/7.

It is unclear if the new app will require a subscription to the network to watch the various video programs being produced by the former cable news host.

Currently, subscriptions to the platform cost $9 monthly or $72 for the entire year.
