A sports editor at the Daily Caller, the conservative news site run by pundit Tucker Carlson, described the Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby as “sexy” and said he “wouldn’t mind being unrestrained in the back of Ms. Mosby’s paddy wagon” in an article published on Friday.
Earlier in the day, Mosby announced her decision to charge six police officers allegedly involved in the case of Freddie Gray, a 25-year-old Baltimore man who died from injuries sustained while in police custody.
In the Daily Caller article, headlined “Let’s Be Honest: The Baltimore State’s Attorney Is Kind Of A Smokeshow,” sports editor Christian Datoc wrote:
Throughout the presser, the 35-year-old prosecutor managed to maintain a fiery, authoritative demeanor AND flashed some serious “crazy girl” eyes, a combination which — if truth be told — I found incredibly sexy.
Datoc also included a meme of a black actor with the text “Damn girl.”
And, he compiled tweets from users who also found her “hot” and Instagram photos in which the hashtag “#hotpoliticians” was reportedly used.
At the end of the article was the line: “I wouldn’t mind being unrestrained in the back of Ms. Mosby’s paddy wagon.”
It was an apparent reference to the alleged way in which Gray was fatally injured. According to Mosby, Gray was handcuffed and shackled but unrestrained by a seat belt while he was being transported in the back of a Baltimore police van. As a result, she said, he suffered a “critical neck injury.”
This article comes after Daily Caller founder Tucker Carlson’s brother, Buckley Carlson, faced heat for calling a woman a “whiny little self-righteous bitch.” The comments, made about a spokeswoman for New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, were accidentally sent to the woman when Buckley Carlson was attempting to email his brother.
