Tucker Carlson ratchets up criticism of Duckworth, calls her a 'coward'

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by JudyM (a host of the Latest Breaking News forum).

Source: MSN

Fox News host Tucker Carlson escalated his criticism of Sen. Tammy Duckworth (D-Ill.) on Tuesday night, calling her a "coward" for refusing to come on his show without a public apology.

The Fox News host said his show reached out to the Illinois Democrat's office to invite her on the program to have a "vigorous, reasoned exchange between adults." But he said a representative "informed us that before even considering our request, we must first issue a public apology for criticizing" the senator.

"Keep in mind that Tammy Duckworth is not a child, at least not technically - she is a sitting United States senator, who is often described as a hero," he said. "Yet Duckworth is too afraid to defend her own statements on a cable TV show. What a coward."

"It's long been considered out of bounds to question a person's patriotism. It's a very strong charge, and we try not ever to make it. But in the face of all of this, the conclusion can't be avoided. These people actually hate America. There's no longer a question about that," he said.

I can see why Tucker Carlson is considered a Presidential front runner. He is taking a page out of Trump's playbook and attacking the winner of Purple Heart as being a coward even though he himself led a privileged life going to private boarding schools and a private college. This is what really probably pisses Tucker Carlson off. Tammy Duckworth is a woman,a military veteran, and a person of color who rose to be Senator.

President Donald Trump on the late Sen. John McCain: 'He did the nation a tremendous disservice'

WASHINGTON Ė President Donald Trump again railed against late Republican Sen. John McCain on Thursday, calling the Vietnam veteran's vote against a skinny repeal of Obamacare "disgraceful."

In an interview with Fox News' Sean Hannity, Trump brought up McCain, the Arizona senator who died last August, while discussing future plans to reshape health care and the future of the Affordable Care Act. Trump said Republicans had a plan done but it was shot down due to McCain.

Then, Trump rekindled the infamous moment in 2017 when McCain voted against a Republican-led effort to repeal portions of Obamacare, walking to the front of the Senate floor and giving a thumbs-down gesture.

"He did the Republican Party a tremendous disservice and he did the nation a tremendous disservice, tremendous, and itís unfortunate," Trump said of McCain, the Republicans' 2008 presidential nominee. "He went thumbs-down at the very last moment and I thought it was a disgraceful thing to do and very, very bad for our country and bad for health care."

1. Reasoned exchange between adults.

When did Tucker Carlson become an adult?

14. In 2005 during Katrina. CNN put him on the ground in New Orleans.

 

On tv he was moved by the dead bodies floating. Iíve never seen him do it since.

2. Carlson is far from being an adult

So a discussion between adults with him is impossible. Senator Duckworth should never appear on any faux news program. Being one of my senators I would gladly kick Tucker in the balls if she would rather not.

8. Ducker Carlson says what?

He couldn't even handle a controlled setting like Crossfire and had to constantly dive for that idiotic "bell rule" that Ducker and Begala had. Thus the name of "Ducker", ducking out of any hard, uncomfortable questions.

9. These people-- do their listeners think...

"Flew helicopters in a war zone. Lost both her legs in action. Survived. Learned to walk again. Fell in love and married. Had children. And then, as a disabled vet, brand new mom, she ran for office, AND WON."

Do they get the slightest glimmer of "She doesn't sound like a coward. Tucker Coward Carlson couldn't hold her purse."

17. I suggest to Lil Tucker that he shut his mouth about Sen. Duckworth. Seriously.

She was a great Rep. for my district in IL, she is a great Senator for IL and the nation, a war hero, and a great American.
Public service most of her life.

Lil Tucker, not much. Just a professional right wing whiner.

Every one of us needs to ask his sponsors that, before informing them that we will never again purchase their product because they've allied themselves with the nation's enemies.

I guess going to school where it costs $65,000 annually to attend puts Tucker Carlson in the position of dictating what patriotism and serving the country means.

It would be really difficult to find a jury that would convict her.

And we would get some serious mileage out of it.
