In January, the United States House of Representatives impeached Donald Trump – again. It is only the fourth time a president has ever been impeached, and the first time that a president was impeached twice. Furthermore, with ten Republicans voting in favor of Trump’s impeachment, it was the most bipartisan impeachment in history.

Nevertheless, Fox News continues to distort reality with utterly ridiculous versions of Trump’s tribulations. And not surprisingly, Tucker Carlson is leading the way with flagrant lies and wholly manufactured inventions of what others are feeling. The Thursday night episode of his Fox News melodrama (video below) asked belligerently “Why are the Democrats so angry.” It’s a burning question in the minds of people who live in the same fantasy universe as Carlson. He ranted…
“Why are the Democrats so angry? We’ve asked that question a number of times. It doesn’t seem to make any sense. Truly. In November the Democratic Party won everything Full control of the federal government. They seethed for years while they were out of power. […]They are crazy person mad. Florid-faced, irrational, yelling and making threats. It is bizarre.
You really have to wonder which Democrats he’s referring to. If he’s been watching the Senate impeachment hearings he would have seen the House Democratic impeachment managers calmly delivering an effective and devastating case against Trump, based on facts and testimony that included Trump’s own words. There wasn’t a single incident of yelling or threats or anything approaching such alleged histrionics. Talk about bizarre. Carlson may just be projecting what he sees within himself. Carlson went on to malign Democrats for even bothering to impeach Trump:
“You would think they’d get to work fixing the country they inherited. They promised to do that. Instead, they set about breaking things and hurting people. What is going on here?”
First of all, it’s unusually candid of Carlson to concede that Joe Biden inherited a country that was desperately in need of repair. But his assertion that Democrats are “breaking things and hurting people” is curious, to put it mildly. Does anyone knw WTF he is talking about? Carlson also revealed that he is either in a coma, or resorting to his standard mode of communication, shameless lying.
Democrats have been working vigorously to fix the problems caused by Trump and the GOP. They have drafted a COVID relief bill (that Republicans are blocking). They are restoring Obamacare to the state prior to Trump’s sabotage of it. They have rejoined the Paris Climate Accords and World Health Organization. They have ramped up coronavirus testing and vaccinations.
And that’s not all. They are addressing income inequality with plans to raise the minimum wage to $15.00 an hour. And Biden has addressed critical issues with Russia (cyber-espionage, election interference, bounties on American soldiers, Navalny poisoning) and China (virus origination, trade, Hong Kong independence, territorial waters) that Trump ignored and/or made worse. And Biden has only been President for three weeks. What more does Carlson want?
The tirade continued with Carlson complaining that Democrats were involved with Google’s YouTube taking down a pro-life account. Carlson accused Google of doing that because “Google supports abortion, like a lot of big corporations do. Children distract the labor force. If you’re raising your family, you are not serving shareholders.” Does that idiocy even need to be rebutted? For the record, Carlson is lying again. The real reason the account was closed was because it was “repeatedly sharing videos that spread misinformation about COVID-19 and the vaccines against it.” That is a violation of YouTube’s stated terms of service.
Carlson also complained that “Twitter shut down James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas Twitter feed. There was no justifiable reason to do this.” Once again, Carlson is lying. The reason Twitter shut down O’Keefe’s account was because of its “repeated violations of the platform’s policies prohibiting sharing — or threats of sharing — other people’s private information without consent.”
Carlson was especially perturbed over what he views as the victimhood of Fox News, saying that…
“Fox is the last big organization in the American news media that differs in even the smallest ways from the other big news organizations. The only one. That’s it. Just us. At this point, there’s everyone else in the media standing in crisp formation, in their starched matching uniforms and their little caps, patiently awaiting orders from the billionaire class.”
Umm… It seems like it’s Carlson and his tribe that is goose-stepping in formation, wearing little red caps, and taking orders from billionaire Rupert Murdoch. There is nothing similar in the rest of the media that reports to a single source of ultra-partisan dogma. In fact, there’s a great deal of competition and diversity. That’s the reason that Fox News stands alone. They have cornered the radical right news market. And they are the only network that so brazenly dispenses with journalistic ethics and the principles of honest reporting. So naturally they are “different” in the most biased and dangerous way.

“Breaking things & hurting people”?? WTH is he talking about?!
Projecting again? Or plain old lying to the masses?
Biden hasn’t even been in Office a month yet ~ cut him some slack! He’s done alot & done it despite GOP lagging in turning over committees to Dem leadership, GOP fighting everything “just cuz” & due to no transition cooperation from Trump, Biden got there & was surprised to gind NO plans for things like distributing vaccines, millions of missing vaccines & piss-poor paperwork to boot! In short ~ he found a friggin’ MESS! But, of course, we can’t expect FauxNotNews to cover anything real, just broadcast biased crap & more lies.
BTW ~ Traditionally, there’s always a “honeymoon” period for new Presidents — even Trump got one — so why isn’t Biden allowed that same courtesy? No “honeymoon” period for him.
To be fair, Trump didn’t really have a honeymoon. He was hated by a majority of Americans from start. He’s the first president to never have an approval rate to hit 50%, even in the honeymoon period.
Oh. I thought the “honeymoon period” referred to people & the press takin’ t easy on the new President for a brief time at start of presidency.
Jesus H. Christ I hate this mfucker! He is such an entitled asshole trust fund prick. I’m sure Tucker had to pay kids to be his friend when he was growing up or should I say as he got older. Obviously he has never grown up.
Tucker….rhymes with F**ker.
Did Tucker miss that whole assault on the Capital thing? It was in the news.
Nawww…he disn’t miss it, just pretending he did” unlesa he can spin it to be Dems fault & up to now, that’s been a stretch even for him.
Judging from what they’re discussing doing right now at the so-called Senate trial, it may just be F**ker Carlson’s lucky day?!?
I get so dang tired of Dems losing sight of the big picture, more sick of watching them “get played” by Rethugs, even when Dems have upper hand ~ it’s like they throw it away, or let it be stolen from them cuz’ not lookin’, or something. Maybe just outfoxed by the morally vacuous (R) Party, for whom no limits exist to how low they’ll stoop.
We shall see I guess. Hopefully, they won’t take short cuts to get it over eith. Rethugs are taking a huge hit with the public (aka – voters) viewing the trial & say they’re “getting slammed by the medua”. Good! Should be, on both counts!
Tucker stole that “awaiting orders from the billionaire class” from Bernie. Of course he projected who was doing it onto the wrong party but at least he got the words correct.
“What more does Carlson want?”
Was that a serious question? Because if it was, you might not understand the answer. . .
However, bad jokes aside, I’m willing to attempt to explain his real issues.
Liar Tuck wants his Hate-Fuhrer back. He wants it with every blackened fiber of his abhorrent being, since under the Hate-Fuhrer he could go on spouting hate for pretty much ever. And Liar Tuck has ever so many things he hates with a great and burning passion! (TRUTH being, very possibly, foremost among the many things. . .)
As well, under the guidance of a President who actually cares about America, unlike the wannabe God-King Hate-Fuhrer, Liar Tuck might see a resurgence of the Fairness Doctrine, and a requirement to tell, oh horrors, the TRUTH if you pretend to be any kind of television journalist. While Fox Pretend News has previously stated that “no reasonably intelligent person could possibly mistake what Carlson does as being “News”, the possibility that he might be constrained to telling the TRUTH on his show chills the twisted abortion that is Liar Tuck’s miserable excuse for a soul to its very lack of a core. . .
Since Liar Tuck has never, ever, even once uttered anything even passingly close to the TRUTH, this puts him in a very awkward position. Since his head has been immured to an amazing depth inside his ass for so long, Liar Tuck fears he might not be able to unbend enough to utter the TRUTH, and dreads the possibility that it might sear his lips and a good portion of his face completely off.
He’s not alone in these concerns, as the majority of the ‘headliners’ at Fox are in exactly the same situation, for exactly the same reason as Liar Tuck.
And, as always with any liar, if Liar Tuck ever once begins to tell the truth, he’ll potentially have to answer for all the despicable lies he’s been telling to the American people, or at least to the gullible rubes that watch his show on anything like a regular basis.
And if his viewers are unable to get their hatred fix from Liar Tuck on a nightly basis, why, those poor souls might just shrivel up and die, and wouldn’t that be a sad situation for the rational (or passingly rational, I’m still attempting to decide) Americans that have to deal with their spoon-fed stupidity every day?
Did that sufficiently explain Carlson’s problems, those of Fox, and the millions of the repeatedly lied-to gullible rubes?
