Tucker Carlson: Hot teachers sexually harassing teen boys ‘greatest thing that ever happened’

Published

on

Tucker Carlson repeated his claim Monday afternoon that a Texas middle school teacher should not face criminal charges after performing a classroom lap dance for a 15-year-old student, reported Media Matters.

The Fox News personality said April 28 on “Outnumbered” that charging the teacher, Felicia Smith, would be “deranged, because there’s no victim here.”

His comments drew a significant response from viewers, and Carlson’s co-host Harris Faulkner, read three comments posted on the program’s Facebook page.

“Tucker is so wrong on this one,” one viewer posted. “What that teacher did is assault and she should lose her job and do jail time.”

Another woman expressed similar views, but a male viewer said he agreed with Carlson.

“Whether it’s fair or not, a double standard does exist,” the viewer posted. “I would be hard pressed to find a 15-to-17-year-old boy that doesn’t dream of being seduced by a hot teacher.”

Carlson said the teacher, in his estimation, was hot “enough,” and noticed the reactions broke down along gender lines in the minuscule sample size offered by Fox News producers.

“The women are upset and the man understands, and here’s the bottom line: A 15-year-old boy is not a 15-year-old girl, and so – I got a lot of mail about this – every man understands this,” Carlson said. “A 15-year-old boy looks at this as, like, the greatest thing that ever happened, and I think for a 15-year-old girl it would be traumatic. That’s just real. I don’t know what to say – I don’t want that to be true but it is true.”

The teacher has been charged with improper relationship with a student after she admitted to performing the four-minute, full-contact lap dance as other students laughed and cheered.

“I’m not saying that all teachers should do lap dances at school,” Carlson said. “I’m just saying when a teacher gets so enthusiastic she breaks out into a lap dance, don’t send her to prison. That’s all I’m saying.”

Trump’s path to re-election ‘smashed to splinters’ as his only achievement is swallowed up by the pandemic: report

Published

on

In a piece for Politico, Ben White writes that Donald Trump was going into November's election with only one achievement under his belt -- a healthy economy -- and now he has nothing left to run if he wants to be re-elected.

With all of the gains made in the stock market long gone due to the coronavirus pandemic and the collapse of oil prices, White claims that the president's campaign strategy lies in tatters.

"The fundamental pillars of Donald Trump’s presidency — a hot economy, strong job growth and a rocking stock market — are all being smashed to splinters by the ravaging coronavirus, which has shuttered much of the nation and now officially ended a streak of 113 months of job gains dating back to the end of the Great Recession a decade ago," he wrote before noting the explosion of unemployment claims -- over ten million so far -- that has the country reeling.

Strong signs that judges will increasingly decide how 2020 elections are run during the coronavirus pandemic

Published

on

The jaw-dropping conclusion of a federal court hearing on April 1 about Wisconsin’s statewide elections on April 7 was no April Fools’ joke. U.S. District Judge William Conley said the state’s Democratic governor and Republican-led legislature had failed to put their citizenry’s health first by not postponing the statewide election in a pandemic.

“There’s a hurricane coming!” Conley fumed from the bench, interrupting Douglas M. Poland, a lawyer representing the Wisconsin Alliance for Retired Americans, League of Women Voters of Wisconsin and four citizens who sued the state. “You can’t even give me a case where a federal judge stopped a state from stupidly holding an election when most of the voters were not going to go to the polls because there’s a hurricane coming!”
