Danica Patrick isn’t letting the left-wing anger mob keep her from speaking her mind, and to show just how little she cares about the haters and the critics, she teased on her official Instagram that she’s taped an interview with the king of anti-establishment media – Tucker Carlson.

“[And] just like that…. I’m into politics,” Patrick posted to Instagram last Friday.
“I have steered clear of it because as an athlete and having sponsors, it was never my place or interest to be honest,” the NASCAR veteran stated. “But after talking to Tucker today it became more clear why I am interested.”
“People should be able to live their lives however they want to in my opinion, as long as it’s not hurting anyone else.”
Pretty libertarian if you ask me.
Danica Patrick started getting heat online for recently attending a Turning Point USA conference simply as an attendee. TPUSA is a conservative student organization that connects activists of all ages across the country throughout the year.
Patrick, previously known for her career in IndyCar and NASCAR, and for her high-profile relationship with NFL player Aaron Rodgers, faced backlash on social media for her apparent conservative-leaning political stance.
Critics expressed disappointment and withdrew their support of the former feminist icon, NASCAR driver, and GoDaddy spokeswoman. Comments ranged from accusations of being disconnected from reality to expressing surprise and disapproval of her political alignment.
Despite the criticism, Patrick also received support from fans who applauded her for having her own opinions and not succumbing to pressure.
This incident reflects the broader polarized nature of American society, where individuals are often quickly judged and categorized based on their political affiliations.
The exact day this interview will air on Tucker Carlson’s X account has not been announced yet, but it’s sure to draw in viewers interested to hear what Patrick has to really say about the state of the nation.
