Fox News' Gretchen Carlson is not a dumb person -- she just plays one on TV. That's the revelation from "The Daily Show's" Jon Stewart, who devoted almost an entire segment to Carlson Tuesday night.
Like many of her colleagues on Fox, Carlson often plays dumb. In her case, that means looking up words like "ignoramus" and "czar," or at least pretending to in order to score some points against liberals -- and look anti-intellectual in the process.
Turns out, though, that Carlson is actually quite smart. She graduated from Stanford -- with honors, no less -- studied abroad at Oxford and is a classically trained violinist. In other words, she probably already knew exactly what "czar" means.
