Frankly, no one expected sparks to fly when Donald Trump Jr. made an appearance on “Hannity” Thursday night, which is why those tuning in to Fox News early were surprised to see fireworks erupt between Tucker Carlson and guest Lt. Col. Ralph Peters.

That’s one way of summarizing it, but it leaves out Peters suggesting Carlson’s defense of Vladimir Putin made him sound like “Charles Lindbergh in 1938” making apologies for Hitler.

Carlson seemed a bit taken aback to be likened to a Nazi apologist.

Hold on; some are questioning the call that Peters mopped the studio floor with Carlson.
