Stunned Americans slam ‘traitor’ Tucker Carlson for again declaring he is on ‘the side of Russia’

‘Unimaginable Betrayal’

Fox News top primetime host Tucker Carlson Monday night stunned many Americans by declaring he supports one of America’s greatest enemies.

“I should say for the record that I’m totally opposed to these sanctions and I don’t think we should be at war with Russia and I think we should take the side of Russia if we have to choose between Russia and Ukraine,” Carlson told his Fox News viewers.

It was not the first time.

Just one week earlier Carlson had made a very similar statement, only to walk it back at the end of the episode after immediate outrage on social media.

“Why shouldn’t I root for Russia? Which I am,” Carlson had declared one week ago Monday.

He later claimed he had made the staggeringly offensive remark to mock the left.

Carlson might want to remember that Russia attacked the U.S. 2016 election in order to make Americans distrust our democratic institutions, including our election system, and to install his chosen presidential candidate.

(And it’s not just Russia’s attacks against America. Human Rights Watch issued a report on Russia’s violations of human rights, including “Torture and Cruel and Degrading Treatment.” Also, attacks on “Freedom of Assembly” and “Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity,” among others.)

After Carlson’s Monday night embrace of Russia, many on social again expressed outrage and disgust.

Trump is enacting the presidency ‘George Wallace never had’: Conservative columnist

Published

On Friday, writing for The Washington Post, conservative columnist Max Boot tore into President Donald Trump's legacy on race.

"We know how a normal president responds when a white police officer ignites furious protests by killing a black man. It is the way President Barack Obama responded in 2014 after a grand jury refused to indict a white police officer who had fatally shot Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., and the National Guard had to be called in to deal with looting and fires," wrote Boot. "Obama expressed sympathy for the protesters — their anger, he noted, was 'rooted in realities that have existed in this country for a long time' — while making clear that he had no sympathy with violence: 'Burning buildings, torching cars, destroying property, putting people at risk — that’s destructive and there’s no excuse for it. Those are criminal acts. And people should be prosecuted if they engage in criminal acts.'"
