Tucker Carlson does his impression of a cat, because he's a complete tool

Seriously, he actually did this

It's too much to hope that MSNBC will fire this asshole - unless it's for stealing Chris Matthews' schtick - but you might drop MSNBC a line about this anyway:

Discussing Sen. Hillary Clinton's decision to remain in the presidential race, MSNBC senior campaign correspondent Tucker Carlson, during the May 27 edition of MSNBC's Morning Joe, said of Clinton, "Look, she's a trapped animal, there's absolutely no question about it. As I've thought to myself many times, if you've ever tried to get your cat in a box, you know what Hillary Clinton is doing right now." Carlson then imitated a screeching cat, and added, "with all four paws out, all the hair standing up? Look, she is in feral mode." After co-host Mika Brzezinski said, "I don't know what to say," and guest co-host Mike Barnicle said, "Tucker Carlson, ladies and gentlemen," Carlson asserted, "And I say that as a compliment, I admire her tenacity. I do."

Don't worry, he says it as a compliment. Join us next time when Tucker Carlson compares McCain favorably to a 19-year-old beagle with bladder control problems.
