The pandering politicians and pundits propping up Donald Trump are storming the media with mendacious defenses of his criminal misconduct. Among the ludicrous arguments that they throw against the wall is that an indictment would benefit the twice-impeached, reality TV game show host. Perhaps there is some truth to that with regard to the Deplorables already indoctrinated into his cult. However, everyone else would be further repulsed by his recidivist criminality.

If it would be such a boon to Trump, then why are so many of his glassy-eyed sycophants erupting in outrage? If they really believed that an indictment would propel him to victory, wouldn’t they be rooting for the Manhattan District Attorney, Alvin Bragg (and the New York Attorney General Leticia James, and the Georgia D.A. Fani Willis, and special counsel Jack Smith) to bring on their prosecutions? Trump himself is consumed by fear, as exhibited in the flurry of frantic posts on his floundering Twitter ripoff, Truth Social.

Naturally, Fox News is joining the crusade to absolve Trump of any responsibility for his abhorrent crime spree. And leading the pack is, as usual, Tucker Carlson. In a tedious harangue on Monday night’s tele-sermon (video below), Carlson unleashed his typically rage-fueled brand of conservative crackpottery. The subject was reporting that Trump might be indicted soon by the Manhattan District Attorney for violating financial and campaign laws, Carlson complained that Trump was – as always – a victim of the all-powerful Democratic cabal that had stolen the election in 2020, and now is determined to – as the Trumpists say – “LOCK HIM UP!”

Carlson’s interminably long tirade rambled aimlessly, flinging baseless and childish insults at Bragg as being funded by George Soros and looking like Al Sharpton (because to racists like Carlson, “they” all look alike). He dismissed the notion that Trump’s “hush money” payoff to adult film star, Stormy Daniels, and the subsequent cover up and obstruction of justice, was a crime at all. According to Carlson, “paying people not to talk about things, hush money, is ordinary in modern America.” And it’s hard to criticize him for that opinion considering that he got his current show on Fox News when his predecessor, Bill O’Reilly, was fired for sexual harassment, for which he and Fox paid out millions to sweep under the rug.
In summary, Carlson concluded that indicting Trump would result in the end of democracy. That’s not an exaggeration of his remarks. That’s precisely what he said…
“If the Democratic Party is allowed to do this, allowed to crush the presidential front-runner, the main threat to their power, with a bogus criminal case, where does that leave us? We’re done because that precedent will live forever and voters will never again determine the outcome of a presidential election. It’s remarkable when you think about it.”

What’s remarkable is that Carlson can pretend that he was thinking when he came up with that. First of all, an indictment of Trump would not be done by the Democratic Party. It would be done by a Grand Jury of local citizens and an elected D.A. Secondly, Carlson’s characterization of this as “a bogus Criminal Case,” is purely his biased, dishonest, and ill-informed opinion. And finally, there is no logical path from indicting a criminal like Trump, to the assertion that elections are gone forever. It makes about as much sense as saying that if you wear a hat, your dog will stop talking to you.
Carlson is being especially worshipful of Trump these days as penitence for his recently discovered sacrilege. Internal communications released by Dominion Voting Systems in the billion dollar defamation lawsuit against Fox News reveal that Carlson told his Fox colleagues that he “hates [Trump] passionately.” And in the rarified world of Trumpism, that could not be allowed without Carlson being forced to atone. So you end up with nonsense like this. But sadly, no amount of up-sucking will ever be sufficient for Trump.

It is so … interesting how people like FuKKKer Retardson spew crapola like this, and it keeps hitting your mind how they would react if any Democrat said anything close to this to protect someone NOT FuKKKer’s God. Of course, we all KNOW how the Traitors would react. Because FuKKKer will continue to demand that President Biden be prosecuted for … reasons, while he’s in office and after he leaves office, and somehow FuKKKer will NOT say that THAT will “forever end Democratic elections.” Yeah, go figure that. Traitors only pretend to care about “Democratic elections” when they lie that someone NOT their God is threatening them. The Traitors threaten Democratic elections all the time, because they don’t BELIEVE in democracy OR republicanism. And GQP Hypocrisy is eternal.
Oh, and FuKKKer? About that “voters will never again determine the outcome of a presidential election” nonsense? Actually, I think you Traitors pretty much guaranteed that when Dumya’s minions went to Poppy’s Supreme Court in 2000 to stop the recount in Florida and ensure his anointment as President, and Your God’s minions went to Russia in 2016 to ensure HIS anointment.
Damn all Traitors.
Very good comment, Kali. I wonder what reason these traitors are going to have to ”Impeach” Pres. Biden?? I supposed they have a list of blatant lies and false accusations they have made up out of thin air. I think that son of bitch Carlson Tucker is suggesting by saying. ” forever end Democratic elections ” that in his unhinged and demented mind that prosecuting his Lord and Savior Donald TUMP that he is going to be Dictator by the year 2024 and the United States will be totally in the grasp of an Authoritarian type of government.. The corrupt Fascist GQP has already gerrymandered the hell out districts and in my opinion that is the only reason many of the insurrectionist asshats now in Congress got elected.. The GQP has become the GFP, the Grand Fascist Party. The party of hate, Fascism, Hypocrisy, Traitors, and Domestic terrorism. That big mouth ignorant bastard Carlson Tucker is promoting this horror show with his blatant lies and disinformation.
