Ever since Donald Trump defeated Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton to become the new president-elect, critics of the billionaire real estate mogul have questioned his victory. After a writer for the Huffington Post wrote an article claiming Clinton was the real president-elect, he appeared on Fox News during a heated segment.

Fox News clash

Heading into the 2016 presidential election, all signs pointed to Hillary Clinton becoming the first female President of the United States. Even in the days leading up to Election Day, Clinton seemed like a lock to pull out the win.

When Donald Trump was announced the winner, the results took many by surprise. In the months since the election, various reports have confirmed that Russia was behind the hack of the Democratic National Committee (DNC), with the goal of helping to elect Trump. With controversy hanging over his election win, Trump has received heavy backlash from critics, which was on display during the January 18 edition of "Tucker Carlson Tonight" on Fox News.

Joining host Tucker Carlson was Alex Mohajer of The Huffington Post who recently wrote an article titled "Hillary Clinton is the rightful President-elect of the United States." During the interview, as well as in the article, Mohajer argued that Clinton's popular vote win, mixed with Russia's apparent interference, is enough to dismiss Trump's victory.

Once source used in the aforementioned article was from a 1987 piece in the "Executive Intelligence Review," which linked Trump to the Kremlin over 30 years ago.

Tucker Carlson was quick to note that the magazine in question was run by Lyndon LaRouche, a noted conspiracy theorist with little to no credibility in the mainstream media.

While Mohajer did admit to LaRouche's involvement in the original article, he also pointed out Carlson's controversial past as the former editor of the right-wing website "The Daily Caller."

"You were the editor-in-chief of The Daily Caller, which for a decade, called into question Barack Obama's legitimacy because of his race," Alex Mohajer said.

After Carlson denied the allegations, Mohajer continued to pile on. "Are you a illegitimate journalist?" he asked of Tucker Carlson, before stating, "Your own website ran some pretty racist terrible junk." The two continued to go back and forth in their shouting match until the Fox News host said "Your point is stupid," before cutting the segment off shortly after.

While there is a growing backlash to Donald Trump, the former host of "The Apprentice" is now just two days away from becoming the new commander in chief. Though Trump is getting to celebrate, over 100,000 protesters are planning to take to the streets on Inauguration Day and voice their opposition.
