Does Buckley Carlson have any siblings?
Besides Buckley, his parents are also blessed with three daughters. Their names are Lille Carlson, Hopie Carlson, and Dorothy Carlson. Lille is the oldest of all and she was born in 1995. Buckley is the second son. Thus, he has two little sisters; Hopie (born in 1999) and Dorothy (born in 2002).
From various news, it has been revealed that this family is very united and the siblings are very close to each other as well. Additionally, all the family members get together and spend quality time together whenever there’s a festive or any event. His older sister Lillie is a college graduate just like himself whereas his younger sister Hopie is still studying in college.
The reason behind all of the siblings having an unbreakable bond with their parents is that Tucker and his wife Susan have brought up their children in a loving and caring manner.
Is Buckley Carlson married? Does he have any girlfriend?
As far as we know, Buckley is not married to anyone and doesn’t seem to have a girlfriend. Well, he might be dating someone secretly but as he is really private about his personal life, we can’t be soo sure. However, it is safe to assume that he is single as there isn’t any information about his dating life.
Moreover, his parents have set an example for all the young couples out there. The two had been together since their school days. The pair had met each other while studying at the same high school, St. Georges High School in Rhode Island back in 10th grade.
Like any couple, they also had a fair amount of ups and downs in their life. Turk was the headmaster of the college so it was quite difficult for them at the beginning. However, they have overcome the difficulty together and their love for one another has also increased as time went on.
Tucker eventually proposed to Susan while on the verge of graduating from college. The couple decided to walk down the aisle on 10th August 1991 in the school chapel in a small ceremony.
Getting into an altercation with a gay Latino man
Tucker is very famous and due to his strong support for the Republican party, there has been much hate for him from many people as well. He made a lot of headlines when he and his father got into a controversy in 2018. The incident had occurred when the Carlson family was on dinner at the Farmington Country Club in Charlottesville, Virginia.
There were some other guys at dinner too, but one guy who seems to be Latino stopped and asked Tucker’s daughter if she was sitting with Tucker Carlson. She replied, “Yes, I am sitting with him and he is my dad.” The Latino man started to curse and use foul language to insult her which led her to go back to the place crying where her family was having dinner.
After seeing his baby sister cry, Buckley stood up and went to the man and confronted him. He was furious and a physical altercation broke between them. Many news outlets claimed that Buckley was apparently intoxicated and racist towards the Latino man. However, the news outlets were biased as they didn’t know about the internal issues among them. Furthermore, Tucker also claimed that he had stopped drinking alcohol several years ago.
What is Buckley Carlson up to these days?
Currently, he is working as the communications director at the U.S. House of Representatives since January 2021. His father revealed that his son Buckley was working in the U.S Capitol during the events of 6th January 2021 late last year.
During an episode of the Fourth Watch Podcast with Steve Krakauer, he said, “I hated what happened on January 6. One of my kids was actually in the building when it happened. I was on the phone in real-time.”

Tucker “appears to have been referring to his own son Buckley Carlson”, according to the Daily Mail.
Previously, Buckley used to work as a Special Assistant from June 2019 to January 2020 and as a Press Secretary from January 2020 to January 2021. He had started his professional line working at The White House as a communication intern before joining the U.S. House of Representatives. He also got a chance to work at Jeffrey J. Kimbell & Associates as a Policy intern.
The path that he has chosen looks as if he will slowly transition into a political career. He can become a political commentator and walk on the same path that his father has walked.
How much does Buckley Carlson earn? His presence on social media
Buckley Carlson has just started working after being an intern so we might have to wait for some time before his net worth can be ascertained. However, his father Tucker has a net worth of $30 million. Thus, he must be living a lavish and comfortable lifestyle.
Unfortunately, he doesn’t have a verified account on any social media sites such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and YouTube. However, he is suspected to have a Twitter account under the username @buckleycarlson.
