The Case Against Tucker Carlson

“Tucker Carlson calls Purple Heart recipient Tammy Duckworth a ‘coward'”

{The Guardian}

From the west coast and Frisco to the east coast and Charleston,

Is anyone more repellent than the oily Tucker Carlson?

I despise his bile

His vicious and vile

Hypocrisy and lies, and the hatred he snarls in.

  • I didn't agree with her politics when she was hanging around with Blago, but someone who went up in a helicopter and got her legs shot off certainly isn't a coward. FNC's ratings must be really tanking for it to resort to such desperate measures.

  • In reply to jack:

    I'm with you, Jack. Her policies are often too liberal for me, and I didn't appreciate her connection to Blagojevich, either. But good heavens -- has Carlson ever even piloted a civilian helicopter, let alone one in a war zone?

  • In reply to Margaret H. Laing:

    Brian Williams either did or didn't, which is why we now have
    NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt.

  • Carlson is merely parroting his mentor, Donald Trump. Remember when Trump declared that John McCain was not a hero because, first, he was shot down and, second, he didn't escape from his North Vietnam prison? Bone spur cadets and their sycophants who watch macho war movies have a deeper understanding of courage than the rest of us.

    Hmm, jnorto, I can't watch Carlson (TV problems, even if I would want to), so I can't vouch for who is the mentor to whom. But while I must argue about whether the two men's understanding of courage is deeper, I think it is indisputably different.

  • In reply to Margaret H. Laing:

    I think Trump is the mentor, with Carlson being only one of a number of politicians and commentators who make a living off the divisive pronouncements and the resulting passion.

    The latest example Trump's appreciation for the members of the military came yesterday. "Wonderful to see Colin Powell, who made big mistakes on Iraq and famously, so-called weapons of mass destruction, be treated in death so beautifully by the Fake News Media," Trump said in a classy statement . "Hope that happens to me someday. He was a classic RINO, if even that, always being the first to attack other Republicans. He made plenty of mistakes, but anyway, may he rest in peace!"

  • In reply to jnorto:

    Both he and granddaddy Friedrich evaded the service, and "THAT'S SMART." Sort of like not paying taxes.

  • BTW (and probably now only partially relevant since the Orange Turd is now banned from the Tweet machine) is yesterday's Pearls Before Swine, including the comments.
