Did Tucker Carlson Slam the President in a Lengthy Interview With a Swiss Publication?

One wonders if Carlson was taken out of context by the media in order to damage his popularity. This is pretty harsh.

I ask about context because I’m pretty sure the part about Occasional Cortex is way out of context. There is no way he called her, and socialism, “the future.”

Did he?

I have a tough time taking the interview that seriously.
Tucker is not shy about opinions, and to spring this 2 years in just doesn’t seem in character.

I think it’s been massaged for maximum circular firing squad action.

MSN-

Fox News Channel host Tucker Carlson set straight any misinformation concerning his views on President Trump: “I don’t think he’s capable,” he said during an interview on Tuesday.

Carlson said he cannot stand Trump’s self-aggrandizement and boasting. Then, when asked whether Trump has kept his promises, the usually quick-witted and long-winded Carlson had just one word: “No.”

“His chief promises were that he would build the wall, defund Planned Parenthood and repeal Obamacare, and he hasn’t done any of those things,” Carlson said, adding that those goals were probably lost causes. Trump, he said, doesn’t understand the system, and his own agencies don’t support him.

“He knows very little about the legislative process, hasn’t learned anything, hasn’t surrounded himself with people that can get it done, hasn’t done all the things you need to do, so it’s mostly his fault that he hasn’t achieved those things,” he added.

… he called Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) and her socialist group “the future.” He also criticized the Republican Party, suggesting that it “will die” if it doesn’t begin to fairly represent middle-class American voters.

“The elite in our country is physically separated in a way that’s very unhealthy for a democracy,” he said. Rural America is “really falling apart,” he said, adding that “if you’re running the country, you should have a sense of that.”

“He was so tough” on Trump, he told The Post. “He was nobody’s cheerleader. For a person who is so successful on Fox News, I didn’t expect him to be so outspoken.”

  1. Yeaaahh I don’t think so. Why would he say that shit to someone in Switzerland and not say it on his own show? And, he knows what he said would end up reported over here.

    It sounds like he was complaining about Trump being surrounded by assholes (which he is) and can’t get anything done. Stick to making hot cocoa. This is a Swiss Miss.

  2. Our wonderful president sure as hell tried. On every point he tried, but we have a house full of ignorant Democrats against every single attempt he makes. And Obama care would have ended except for the creepy John McStain . Then take a look at the half woman Flake, and others like him have no testicles whatsoever. Is Tucker Carlson forgetting about all of that?

  4. Another dishonest tactic by the left. Themselves lying is not enough. Now they have to lie about what other people say.

  5. Yeah, I’m gonna need the transcripts. But on the other hand, there are legitimate Trump criticisms to be made from the right. Whether Carlson was doing so and his words were twisted remains to be seen.

  6. Thirdtwin- Yeah, plus he has his own show to complain from. And has before. And FOX would eat it up, seeing they’re have Type 2 TDS. lol

  7. Yep. The LSM went way overboard saying Tucker was clowning Trump. He was indeed talking about Trump being surrounded by assholes, like I said.
    You can read it on the red link that says ‘interview’. Swiss guy is trying to whip it up anti-Trump and LSM tries to help. Meh.

  8. In Trumps America we have a migrant illegal criminal who dropped a kid in San Diego and is laughing all the way to the American Bank of Welfare and another migrant illegal criminal dining and smiling in a Texas restaurant after enrolling her nine kids in the American public tax trough! What we don’t have in Trumps America is a border wall built with Mexican pesos, Hillarious Clinton wobbling freely aound staged funerals rather than farting in a jail cell and no permanent force on the border to stop a foreign invasion! Tucker is on to something!

  9. I see what you mean about context, BFH. Given the details on all the things that the president has achieved and why he hasn’t, simply stating Socialism is “the future” seems uncharacteristically vague. Tucker would usually add why, for who and the consequences if we don’t put a stop to it.

    Tucker is also equally unafraid to state where the president has succeeded. So that’s a glaring omission.

    I think all the complaints about the president are accurate and all members of congress need to be reminded of their own failings to support this president every day that they hold elected office.

  10. I don’t think this represents Tucker slamming President Trump as much as he is reflecting the reality that even someone as lucid and capable as a President Trump is unable to defeat the entrenched deep state.

  11. “he called Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) and her socialist group “the future.””
    Well the way things are going it’s not a stretch to believe it. She got elected!

  12. It’s inevitable that Leftists will regain/steal the WH and hold/steal Congress at the same time. So in that sense, yes, it is the future.

  13. Well has the wall been build? PPA defunded? Say what you will about how lucky we are Hillary lost, I voted for Trump because he promised to build the wall and stop these endless wars.

    Has he picked some doozies for his administration? Hell yes. Right now, I have some serious reservations about Barr especially with pitbulls like deGenova more than ready to light some fires.

    Which doesn’t take away from really outstanding guys taking serious arrows but look at the nest of snakes at the DOJ who arrested a Chinese national while Trump & Xi were talking. This Barr guy is a deep state operative, we’ll see.

    Who ever is whispering in his ear about Syria needs to be shown the door. Same with Afghanistan. Why are we killing these people?

    He swore up & down he would never sign another budget like the last omnibus and would shut down the government if he didn’t get his wall funding. Welp, he’s making noises that sound like a cave to me. We shall see.

    And with that last poll showing dems favor socialism, especially among younger voters, Cortez looks to be the future for them.

  14. My complaint about Tucker is that he believes in man-made global warming.
    He has said as much on his show.
    He doesn’t seem to think we can do anything about it though.

    Tucker, climate change is real, been going on for millenia, and is NOT caused by mankind.

  15. I still use MSN as a homepage, just to see what the libs are up to.
    MSN is full of shit just like the rest of the lamestream media.

    They had a “cartoon” about Bush and his thousand points of light and Trump having one weak point of light. It was disgusting and dishonest as hell.
