(RightWingAmericans.com)- Tucker Carlson has become one of the most popular Fox News hosts ever, delivering nightly monologues that represent the frustrations and beliefs of grassroots Republicans everywhere. While he supports the president’s agenda, he has regularly called out Donald Trump for failing to deliver on that agenda. He’s also willing to call out anybody that acts against the interests of the American people, including Senator Tammy Duckworth.
Duckworth has long been seen as untouchable because she served as a combat veteran in the Iraq War and lost both of her legs, but Carlson analyzed her performance as a politician and held her to the same standard of accountability as anybody else.
On a recent episode of Tucker Carlson Tonight, the Fox News anchor reminders his viewers that Duckworth believes statues of former President George Washington should be considered for removal.
“To morons like Tammy Duckworth, George Washington is just some old white guy who needs to be erased,” he said. “’Let’s tear down his statues. Rename our capital ‘Sharpton,’ or ‘Mandela’ and let the revolution continue!’ But hold on, not so fast. Changes that profound deserve a debate, not some fake national conversation where they scream command sat you, and you get to obey, but a vigorous reasoned exchange between adults.”
I don’t know, Tucker. That seems like a tall order these days…
Carlson went on to say that he would like to have an exchange like that with Duckworth on his show and that he called her office to invite her on.
“Her flack informed us that before even considering our request, we must first issue a public apology for criticizing Tammy Duckworth,” he said. “In other words, ‘I will not debate you until first you admit you’re completely wrong.’ Keep in mind, Tammy Duckworth is not a child, at least not technically. She is a sitting United States Senator, who is often described as a hero. Yet Duckworth is too afraid to defend her own statements on a cable TV show. What a coward. Tammy Duckworth is also a fraud.”
Throughout the rest of the segment, Carlson unleashed against the Senator, describing how she did nothing to respond to the claims of Veterans Affairs whistleblowers who revealed mistreatment of veterans and even corruption in a hospital near Chicago.
