This was literally debunked by the White House's own transcript, but Tucker is muddying the waters:

Quote:Here's Tucker Carlson saying maybe a reporter swore at Kayleigh McEnany, "you could kinda see both sides to it," and then says the real controversy is that the press created an environment where people believe that she said it?

Tucker's going after the media hard the last couple of days...there must be quite the story on him about to come out.
Ugh, please take this dangerous crap off the air already:


I guess Bereneson didn't read this op-ed:

Quote:Regardless of whether herd immunity is a goal or a side effect of the Swedish strategy, how has it worked out? Not so well, according to the agency’s own test results. The proportion of Swedes carrying antibodies is estimated to be under 10%, thus nowhere near herd immunity. And yet, the Swedish death rate is unnerving. Sweden has a death toll greater than the United States: 556 deaths per million inhabitants, compared with 425, as of July 20.

Sweden also has a death toll more than four and a half times greater than that of the other four Nordic countries combined — more than seven times greater per million inhabitants. For a number of weeks, Sweden has been among the top in the world when it comes to current reported deaths per capita. And despite this, the strategy in essence remains the same.

It is possible that the Public Health Authority actually believed that the Swedish approach was the most appropriate and sustainable one, and that the other countries, many of which went into lockdown, would do worse. Perhaps this, and not herd immunity, is the main reason the authorities are desperately clinging to their strategy. Or perhaps an unwillingness to admit early mistakes and take responsibility for thousands of unnecessary deaths plays into this resistance to change. Nevertheless, the result at this stage is unequivocal.

We do believe Sweden can be used as a model, but not in the way it was thought of initially. It can instead serve as a control group and answer the question of how efficient the voluntary distancing and loose measures in Sweden are compared to lockdowns, aggressive testing, tracing and the use of masks.

In Sweden, the strategy has led to death, grief and suffering and on top of that there are no indications that the Swedish economy has fared better than in many other countries. At the moment, we have set an example for the rest of the world on how not to deal with a deadly infectious disease.

Good. There's something about Tucker I hate even more than Hannity. It's the way he quizzically wonders aloud certain moral basic logical questions, gently easing his audience down the slope into racism, hate, you name it. Fuck him I hope suffering is coming his way.
Geraldo Rivera thinks Ghislaine Maxwell's detention is "woke politics."  He also called Trump "brave" for offering her well wishes:

Quote:Fox News’ Geraldo Rivera says President Donald Trump was “brave” to offer well wishes to accused sex trafficker Ghislaine Maxwell. And Rivera didn’t stop there, saying the pre-trial detention of Jeffrey Epstein’s alleged procurer of underage girls is just “woke politics.”

In a soon-to-trend tweet this morning, Rivera wrote, “When asked @realDonaldTrump
said he wished #GhislaineMaxwellArrested well. With media mob eager to see her lynched it was brave to weigh in. Fact: cases vs her are for crimes allegedly committed more than 25 years ago. She deserved bail & got solitary confinement: woke politics.”
Carlson and Hannity had an awkward exchange last night:

Quote:A slight misunderstanding as Tucker Carlson handed things over to Sean Hannity Tuesday night made for an awkward moment that only one of them even realized was happening. 

Carlson wrapped up Tucker Carlson Tonight by slamming Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, whose net worth reportedly grew by $13 billion on Monday as the coronavirus pandemic continues to ravage the country. Carlson also falsely implied that Democrats are staying quiet and allowing Bezos’s wealth to grow exponentially as others in this country suffer because they are somehow benefitting from it. Several Democrats, including Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez have shown themselves to be anything but friendly to Bezos.

“Jeff Bezos, just yesterday, made $13 billion,” Carlson said. “Now, twenty years ago if that had happened, if a captain of industry had made $13 billion in a single day, while the country got poorer, the Democratic Party would have had something to say about it. Not anymore because the people getting rich are members of the Democratic party.”

The typically jovial interaction as they transitioned to Hannity took a turn, at least for Carlson, when Hannity seemed to argue against Carlson’s point.

“And now Sean Hannity takes over from New York,” Carlson said with a smile. “Alright, Tucker,” Hannity responded. “People can make money. They provide goods and services people want, need and desire. That’s America. It’s called freedom, capitalism, and as long as it’s honest, right? People decide. Alright, Tucker, great show.”

Carlson’s face as Hannity was speaking said it all. He appeared utterly baffled and perturbed by what Hannity was saying. Hannity, on the other hand, didn’t seem to notice.

It wasn’t until after the exchange when The Daily Caller, an online publication co-founded by Carlson from which he only recently divested, tweeted that Hannity had refuted Carlson. 

Hannity responded in a series of tweets admitting that he’d only caught a portion of the end of Carlson’s show, backtracked his argument and apologized for the misunderstanding. Hannity also stated that he was just trying to lend added support to a point Carlson had made in support of capitalism and free enterprise.

Hannity's tweets can be found at the link.
Oh, just kiss you two. You know you want to.
Let them fight, and all that jazz:

Quote:Tucker Carlson segment tonight questions what happened to @DRUDGE, saying his site is at times no longer distinguishable from "woke" websites. Carlson calls Drudge "firmly a man of the progressive left."

Wow, Jesse Watters is giving QAnon a platform during an interview with Eric Trump, and praised the cult for uncovering "a lot of great stuff."

That's far from any truth, which is par for the course for Watters:

Quote:1. During an interview with @EricTrump, @JesseBWatters endorses QAnon

Watters says Q does crazy stuff but "they've also uncovered a lot of great stuff" (not true)

I can't begin to tell you how validating this segment will be for QAnon followers and how dangerous that is.
Tucker was not happy with The Daily Beast for pointing out Dr. Stella Immanuel's views....

Quote:Tucker Carlson attacks The Daily Beast for reporting on Dr. Stella Immanuel's history of baseless medical claims, including claiming that some gynecological issues are caused by sex with demons and spirits.

...but the doctor seems cool with it:

Remember: if you must have sex with demons, please use a condom.
Also, you simply must try the sex with demons. It’s exquisite.
Chuckling at a site called the Daily Beast drawing the line at ‘sex with incubi and succubi’.
“We have such think pieces to show you!”
"We rigged the box, you came. Now you must come with us, taste our indifference."

"No tears, please. It's a waste of good gerrimandering."

"We'll tear your vote apart."
I love the "you need Jesus and/or Kahless" sign-off in Immanuel's tweet.
I guess it's "pretty good" when you factor in the Trump curve?

Quote:Texas...looking pretty good.  Bad news for the “Shut it all Down” Democrats.

Hmm, I think Ingraham might be wrong about this virus again.

I'm detecting a pattern:

Quote:Texas health officials confirmed a record 313 new coronavirus deaths on Wednesday, far exceeding the previous single-day high and reflecting a change in how deaths are confirmed and reported.

The previous high in COVID-19 deaths recorded by Texas in its daily reporting was 197 on July 22. The state also reported 9,042 new coronavirus cases on Wednesday, the most in six days.
Big news: James Murdoch has resigned from Omni Consumer Products News Corp.
Golly. Was he the Sensible Evil One, or the Mindless Evil One? I can never keep them straight.
Eh, who cares. Oh gosh, Fox News might be biased now!

I'm pretty sure James is Jeremy Strong's character in SUCCESSION.

L to the OG...

One of the great cringe TV moments of the last few years.
Tucker's even threatened by the way "Kamala" is pronounced:

Quote:Tucker Carlson loses it when a guest corrects his pronunciation of Kamala Harris's name

Video at the link.
Such a fucking fragile snowflake.

I love how the enormous energy required to pronounce someone's name correctly completely unhinges him.
Sorry if I'm late on this, but does anybody know of any good demon women enclaves in the New England area? I'm a dirty mask wearer and I need to be punished harshly.
I pronounce Tucker Carlson as Dipshit Fuckface.
He's in good company with Fuckface McTurtle, then.
I don't know if I've ever heard "Kamala" from a semi-authoritative source. Is it pronounced in some highly un-phonetic way? Because it looks like simplicity itself.

Anyway, Tucker, go cry to the BBC newsreaders who have to remember that "Worcestershire" is "Wooster" and that Welsh is an actual language with a system of orthography and not just a random jumble of consonants. Ya putz.
"Kamala's a dumb name"...said Tucker.

I believe it's pronounced COMMA-la, fyi.

That was my point, but yes!
As someone who hasn't watched much TV news in years, I was also using the "The Ugandan Giant" pronunciation until I saw this clip.
Dr. Fauci was asked about Tucker Carlson:

Quote:Dr. Anthony Fauci took aim at Fox News’ Tucker Carlson on Friday, saying in an interview with The Washington Post’s Geoff Edgers that he “triggers some of the crazies in society.”

“I flip around the channels at night, which I probably shouldn’t. And I found this guy — you know this guy, Tucker Carlson? You heard of him?” Edgers asked Fauci in an online interview.

“He’s the guy that really loves me, right?” Fauci replied.

Edgers recited some of Carlson’s recent statements about him. “‘Lord Fauci,’ he called you. ‘Has America put too much faith in just one man?’ ‘Unelected Fauci has been leading this country.’ ‘Fauci has made a lot of wrong predictions.’

“Does that get under our skin?” Edgers asked. “Does it bother you? On a humane level, do you feel threatened or concerned when you see that kind of thing floating out there?”

“I’m not concerned about what he says,” Fauci said. “It’s a little bit — I think you could say that when he does that, it triggers some of the crazies in society to start threatening me, actually threatening, which actually happens.”

Carlson has been highly critical of Fauci — the public face of the White House Coronavirus Task Force — for the aggressive response to the coronavirus by both the federal and state governments.

Fauci — who has worked for six presidential administrations since graduating from medical school in 1966, and who is just four months shy of his 80th birthday — said he never could have anticipated this year’s dynamic.

“I mean, who would have when I was in medical school doing things to save people’s lives, I’d have to be going around with a security detail?” he said. “That’s really ridiculous.”
"Carlson has been highly critical of Fauci — the public face of the White House Coronavirus Task Force — for the aggressive response to the coronavirus by both the federal and state governments."

My apologies, but what aggressive response?

"Fuck you."

Oh . . . that one.
