I watched a bit: Is this supposed to be satire? Or are Tucker and guests really that stupid? I checked to make sure this clip didn't air on April 1, which is the only other explanation I could come up with.
Like with all of Tucker's work, its kayfabe acting. For example, Tucker isn't so dense as to not know how to pronounce kilogram ; but breaking performance by acknowledging the idiocy removes all the emotional impact (and primes the audience to think logically/dispassionate).

The last thing Tucker wants is for his audience to be rationally evaluating his ideas. Like a Pro-wrestling audience, he needs them to be emotionally invested and in a state of suspension of disbelief of absurdity.
