Fox News host Tucker Carlson criticized Hollywood liberals in a scathing interview with The Wrap published Friday.

The “Tucker Carlson Tonight” host and co-founder of The Daily Caller told The Wrap that Hollywood liberals “can’t accept the election results for the same reason their business model is crumbling, and Hollywood won’t exist in its present form in 20 years.”

“Hollywood is going out of business because they don’t understand the country they are selling a product to. They’re completely out of touch because they’re rich and entitled.”

“For some reason, urban-affluent liberals both don’t understand and simultaneously despise the rest of the country,” Carlson added later in the interview. “You can’t really effectively sell products to people you despise. Because if you hate someone, you don’t understand them.”

In the weeks since Donald Trump’s election last month, a cohort of left-wing celebrities have done their best to undermine Trump’s victory. (RELATED: Hollywood Celebs Urge Female Elector To Dump Trump, But They Call Her A Man [VIDEO]

Martin Sheen, Debra Messing and other actors appeared in targeted ads trying to convince Republican electors to override the will of the people and not cast their vote for Trump. (RELATED: Meet The Radical Leftist Group Behind Those Desperate Anti-Trump Celebrity Ads)

Those efforts backfired spectacularly, as twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton lost more electoral votes due to “faithless electors” than did Trump. (RELATED: Hillary Clinton Loses A THIRD Of Washington’s Electoral Votes)
