FOX News analyst Tucker Carlson may be temporarily away from his desk for undisclosed reasons.
He has once again made commentary on “a profound national emergency”.
He has also said the country's leaders, whether Democrat or Republican, are “dithering” while cities burn.
Further, he has referred to “relentless lying from the people above.” Not long ago, he stated the public is being lied to about the coronavirus.
His view of the “protests” occurring at this time, is that they are not protests.
They are the opposite of protests, and an attempt to “topple the political system”.
Two days ago, Mr. Trump found himself, and not for the first time, in Mr. Carlson's sights.
Carlson refers to an interview where Mr. Trump was asked to comment on today's riots.
“Right now, I think it's great sitting back and watching this catastrophe”.
Carlson explained that the President was referring to “liberal” cities, like Seattle. That is, for Mr. Trump, watching “liberal” cities destroying themselves is an evening's entertainment.
But Carlson refused this view as legitimate, saying the President is responsible to ALL the people.
So again: this style of leadership is lacking; it's weakness; it's evading.
Now, according to insider sources from FOX News (who must remain nameless), that particular broadcast with Tucker Carlson did not stop there.
He withdrew from his broadcast desk chewing on his lower lip, apparently distracted.
Next, his phone was at his ear, head ducking away, and toe of right foot tapping. His face took on a rosy hue.
He said something to the President.
This news source now has verified from our observer within the studio what those words were.
Lip readers from across the other side of the newsroom have also reluctantly confirmed:
“Mr. President, no, I did not say anything about your hair. I said YOU SHOULD GROW A PAIR!”
Further words (unclear) were exchanged.
Mr. Carlson is reported under consultation with Fox News Management, and possibly in need of a vacation break somewhere in the mountains.
