‘Interview over!’: Fox News’ Tucker Carlson ends interview after Dem calls him out for being more bothered by cursing than kids being shot

Published

on

On Tuesday, the parents of two teen girls killed in the school shooting in Parkland announced that they’re running for Broward County’s school board. Their foray into politics marks the latest instance of grieving family members and survivors of gun violence contesting the National Rife Association’s out-sized influence on the US political system. As many activists have pointed out, the gun lobby’s power has cowed America’s elected officials into merely offering “thoughts and prayers” after every massacre. Activists are sick of it and so are some Democrats running for office.

In a new campaign ad, New Mexico Democratic congressional candidate Pat Davis—a former cop—bluntly declares “Fuck the NRA. Fuck the NRA. Fuck the NRA.”

On Tuesday night, he appeared on Tucker Carlson Tonight.

“So that’s the ad? ‘F’ the NRA? kind of moronic, no?” Tucker asked Davis.

“It started a whole other conversation about guns and I’m grateful for that,” Davis replied.

“But … doesn’t it degrade you? You used the ‘F-word’ in an ad!?” Carson incredulously wondered.

“Being polite has not made our schools any safer … it hasn’t protected police officers like I used to be,” Davis said, in reference to the fact that many officers are trained to fear that any suspect they approach might be armed.

“If a curse word on TV offends you more than pictures of dead children in Parkland or Newtown … then your priorities are all wrong,” Davis concludes.

The interview promptly disintegrated. Watch below:

Published

President Donald Trump went off on the "fake news media" yet again, after his own appointees announced he was willing to meet with Iran.

"The Fake News is saying that I am willing to meet with Iran, 'No Conditions.' That is an incorrect statement (as usual!)," Trump tweeted.

In an odd twist, Trump announced just three months ago he'd be willing to meet with no preconditions.

“Not as far as I’m concerned – no preconditions,” the president said in a Meet the Press interview. At another point in the interview, he also said: “I think they want to make a deal. And my deal is nuclear.”

Internet fears Trump’s ‘locked and loaded’ tweet about oil field bomb means he’s gearing up for war with Iran

the largest U.S. oil producer can be brought to its knees with a drone carrying a bomb. President Donald Trump responded to intelligence that the drone didn't originate in Yemen, but rather from Iraq or Iran, by saying he was "locked and loaded."

"Saudi Arabia oil supply was attacked. There is reason to believe that we know the culprit, are locked and loaded depending on verification, but are waiting to hear from the Kingdom as to who they believe was the cause of this attack, and under what terms we would proceed!" Trump tweeted Sunday.

Donald Trump in coal hard hat thumbs up

President Donald Trump's promises to coal miners have fallen along with his other broken campaign promises. Another state is facing the harsh reality that Trump is not riding in on a white horse to save them.

According to Axios, three out of the nine coal companies in the Powder River Basin in northeastern Wyoming have filed for bankruptcy and another two companies are consolidating. Kentucky coal miners have been protesting Blackjewl, which filed for bankruptcy in July, withdrawing payroll dollars from miners' accounts. Little has been heard about the Wyoming workers as those companies crumble, however.
