“Unbelievably stupid!” These words came from the Kremlin — in the form of Tucker Carlson, who cut a video that he posted on Twitter. And Tucker, who at the time of this writing has not said if he will accept the Kremlin’s gracious job offer, managed to make himself look ridiculous — not that that’s all that hard for him.
So let me set the stage. Tuckems appeared solemn. He did not appear to have any Television makeup on, making his own image appear sort of bright — too bright. Tucker did not speak of his own firing. But he did proceed to bash the “unbelievably stupid” television debates.
“They’re completely irrelevant,” Tucks insisted. “They mean NOTHING.” This was quite odd. It would be sort of like Samuel Alito cutting a video about how witches don’t exist. Or Clarence Thomas making a video about how important it is to follow ethics rules.
“In five years,” Tucker said, “we won’t even remember that we had them.” “Them” meaning debates. Now Tucker’s words were met with howls of derision. Because Tucker, as you know, has had many a serious debate himself.
Some of the issues that have worried Tuck in the past are Green M&M’s, Testicle tanning, and why the country should love Putin. So he really has no business going after television debates.
On Twitter the mood was — mass hysteria. People laughed their heads off while reminding him of the discussions I posted above. Of course, some people still adore Tucker. One of them is Megyn Kelly, who has been rigorously attacking those who dare to celebrate Tucker’s firing.
Perhaps like Megyn Kelly, Tucker will develop his own podcast. If so, it won’t have any of the power he had while on Fox. This has been a wonderful week in politics seeing Tucker get his ass handed to him by Fox. Only Donald Trump’s imprisonment could have been better.
