Tucker Carlson hammers Trump, Pence and Haley for riot responses: ‘So-called conservative leaders joined the left’s chorus’

  • Tucker Carlson ripped into President Donald Trump, Vice President Mike Pence and former Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley for their reactions to the riots tearing through the country.
  • The country is experiencing a profound national emergency “but you would never know that from listening to the elected leaders,” Carlson says.
  • “What Americans want most right now is the end to this chaos and they want their cities to be safe and they want this to stop immediately.”

Fox News host Tucker Carlson ripped into President Donald Trump, Vice President Mike Pence and former Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley for their reactions to the violent riots tearing through cities across the United States.

The country is experiencing a profound national emergency, the “Tucker Carlson Tonight” host warned, “but you would never know that from listening to the elected leaders,” he added, before citing examples of Pence, Haley, and Trump’s reactions to the riots.

“Almost all of them pretend this is not really happening, or if it is happening, it’s just part of America’s long tradition of vigorous political discourse,” Carlson said. “Politicians on both sides tell us this is all about the death of a man in police in Minneapolis custody last week. The people burning down our country are protesters and they’re engaged in a legitimate protest.”

Carlson suggested that if someone asked these protestors what their demands are or what they are asking for, these protestors would not have answers “because there is not an answer.”

“On Friday some American cities were being destroyed by mobs and the vice president of the United States refused to say anything specific on the riots we were watching on television,” said Carlson, who is a co-founder of the Daily Caller News Foundation. “Instead, Mike Pence scolded America for it’s racism,” he added.

Carlson also criticized Haley for her comment that George Floyd’s death needs to be  “personal and painful for everyone.”

“What Nikki Haley does best is moral blackmail,” he said. “During the 2016 campaign she compared Donald Trump to the racist mass murder Dylan Roof. How is Donald Trump similar to a serial killer? Nikki Haley never explained that, she wasn’t trying to educate anyone.”

“Her only goal was political advantage. Nikki Haley is exceptionally good and getting what she wants, she’s happy to denounce you as a racist in order to get it. She just did,” he added.

“In this case, Nikki Haley’s wish came true. The riots were indeed ‘personal and painful for everyone,’ and then the pain kept increasing and two days after she wrote that dozens of American cities have been thoroughly trashed and some destroyed.”

Carlson also criticized Trump’s response to the riots, noting that after riots raged outside the White House and a Fox News reporter was forced to flee, the president tweeted to assure the nation that he and his family were safe.

“The first requirement of leadership is that you watch over the people in your care,” Carlson said. “That’s what soldiers want from their officers, it’s what families need from the fathers. It’s what voters demand from their president. People will put up with almost anything if you do that.”

Carlson is right.  Along with police genuflecting to rioters, these scumbag politicians are only trying to cover thier asses.  Appeasing radicals so the media is nice to you is cowardly and less than worthless.
