Tucker Carlson Admits What We’ve Long Suspected: ‘I Lie If I’m Really Cornered Or Something. I Lie.’

One of the main requirements for being an on-air host at Fox News is that you have to be willing to lie, twist the facts, fabricate evidence, and misinform your viewers, even though doing can have disastrous consequences, à la the 2020 election results and subsequent insurrection at the U.S. Capitol.

Of course, the people who work at Fox will never come right out and tell their viewers that they’re being lied to. That would destroy whatever modicum of credibility they might have in the minds of the right-wing MAGA faithful, many of who have now switched to even more extreme sources of bullshit, i.e. Newsmax and One America News.

But in a moment of stunning honesty, Tucker Carlson is admitting that he does indeed lie, telling right-wing Dave Rubin of “The Rubin Report” that lying is part of who he is, even though he immediately tried to take it back Media Matters reports:

“I guess I would ask myself, like, I mean I lie if I’m really cornered or something. I lie. I really try not to. I try never to lie on TV. I just don’t — I don’t like lying. I certainly do it, you know, out of weakness or whatever.”

So if you’re not trying to lie, that means you’re not a liar? Good luck selling that one in a court of law. Sure, I committed perjury, but I didn’t like doing it. Tell a judge that and the next sound you hear will be the cell doors closing as you settle in to serve your sentence.

Carlson also fessed up to harming people with his lies and misinformation, but he claims he didn’t do it out of malice:

“And I have to say. There have been many times in the twenty-five years I’ve been in TV where I think you know, are we using this, like, very substantial power that we have to put pictures on the screen to hurt weak people. And I have done that, inadvertently over the years because I got carried away. But I really try not to.”

Tucker didn’t mean to slag a person who was totally innocent. It was inadvertent; he just got carried away. That’s certain to make the person he attacked feel so much better.

Remember the man who approached Carlson recently in Montana and called him “the worst human being ever”? The reason that resonated so deeply with people is because it’s true. Tucker Carlson is a total douchebag, and a self-admitted liar. Those things alone make him a lowlife.

Sean Hannity Says It’s Time For The US To Reinvade Afghanistan

Fox News host Sean Hannity thinks he has the perfect solution to the problem of Afghanistan, even though President Joe Biden is getting Americans and our Afghan allies out of the country by the tens of thousands each day.

According to Hannity, the only thing left to do is reinvade Afghanistan.

Yes, he really advocated that.

On his radio show Tuesday, Media Matters for America reports, Hannity told his listeners:

“Psaki claiming no Americans are stranded, but Joe Biden himself said, but we can’t guarantee the outcome. He put us in this position, it’s an impossible position. I don’t even want to have to ask our military men and women to — to go in there and go behind enemy lines to extract American citizens, but what other option do we have at this point?”

He doesn’t want to ask the military to go back in, but he just did exactly that. One of a million reasons we’re fortunate the high-school dropout Hannity isn’t president.

That’s not all Sean had to say. He continued:

“That’s not a great option, but that’s the only one we’ve got that I see. Will they do it? Will they risk their lives? Yes, they’re willing to do it. But if you don’t make the call today, it’s not going to meet the deadline that apparently you agreed to, Joe.”

Let’s see here: President Biden has access to the best and most recent intelligence on the situation. Hannity doesn’t. President Biden also knows from one minute to the next exactly how many people are being airlifted out of Afghanistan. Sean Hannity has nothing but the lies he gleans from the dumbest corners of the internet.

To hear Hannity tell it, all is lost:

“And that means that — even Adam Schiff acknowledges — Americans, you’re going to leave them behind. Behind enemy lines, hostage to the whims of a terrorist organization. What part of that are you not understanding? The magnitude of which, this cluster that you have created, and put our fellow Americans in jeopardy for no reason. Totally, completely preventable.”

Actually, what Congressman Schiff said is that we may not be able to get all of our Afghan allies out of country by the Aug. 31 deadline. That deadline, of course, could always be extended by the president.

Leave it to Sean Hannity to call for another endless occupation right as 20 years of that nightmare are coming to an end.

If Hannity wants to invade Afghanistan again, let’s see him put his money where his mouth is and suit up with the Marines. He wouldn’t last 30 seconds in battle before he crapped himself and started begging for his mommy.

Fox News Hypocritically Whines That ‘Ambushing’ Tucker Carlson In Montana Was ‘Totally Inexcusable’

According to Fox News, no one should ever approach one of their employees and exercise his or her First Amendment right to speak their mind the way a man in Montana did over the weekend when he ran across Fox host Tucker Carlson in a fly fishing shop.

The interaction, which featured Carlson and a man identified as Dan Bailey, went viral online, with Bailey telling Carlson:

“You are the worst human being known to mankind. I want you to know that.”

Fox News gave a statement to Mediaite regarding the video in which they wrote:

“Ambushing Tucker Carlson while he is in a store with his family is totally inexcusable — no public figure should be accosted regardless of their political persuasion or beliefs simply due to the intolerance of another point of view.”

The problem with that statement is that it could not possibly be more hypocritical, as Amanda Terkel of HuffPost notes. Terkel was ambushed by Jesse Watters of Fox News back in 2009 and recalled that event:

“Fox News is outraged when their big-name hosts are ambushed, but it is totally fine with its big-name hosts doing the ambushing. Ambushes were a central part of the show of Bill O’Reilly, who was Fox’s most prominent host for years. (He left in 2017, under the disgrace of a series of sexual harassment allegations.)

“Fox News also continued to promote Jesse Watters, O’Reilly’s henchman who went out and did many of the ambushes. In 2009, O’Reilly sent Watters out to harass me while I was on vacation for the weekend in Virginia.”

Terkel complained to Fox when Watters harassed her. What was their reaction? Bupkis. They gave her silence in return for her complaint:

“There was no outrage that I was accosted while going about my personal life, simply because O’Reilly didn’t like that I pointed out that he had made gross comments about a woman who was raped.”

Apparently, Fox only gives a damn when one of their propagandists is approached and told how the public feels. That’s one hell of a double standard, but it’s to be expected from conservatives, who are the biggest bunch of whiny-assed little daffodils in the world. They can dish it out, but when it comes back in their direction, they get their feelings hurt and complain.

Attention Fox News and Tucker Carlson: As Harry Truman once said, If you can’t stand the heat, get the hell out of the kitchen!

Donald Trump Jr. Fox News Social Media

Don Jr. Attempts To Defend Tucker Carlson But Only Succeeds In Humiliating Himself

On Sunday, Donald Trump Jr. (a.k.a Traitor Tot) tried to defend his buddy Tucker Carlson who was castigated by a man in a viral video that showed the Fox host being taken to task for his lies about vaccines for COVID-19, but all Junior accomplished was proving what a gutless suck up he is.

In the video of Carlson, a man identified as Dan Bailey approaches the Fox host in a Montana shop and tells him:

“You are the worst human being known to mankind. I want you to know that.”

That led Don Jr. to post this ridiculous note on Twitter regarding the video:

Pregnant male emoji?! WTF does that even mean? Is Junior trying to say that Bailey is overweight? Has he taken a good look at his fat slob of a father lately? The failed, one-term president looks like he swallowed a pumpkin and wasn’t able to shit it out. He’s clearly tilting the scales at over 300 lbs.

All Junior accomplished was getting his own tweet squashed flat by others on social media:

Tucker Carlson Gets Called Out As The ‘Worst Human’ While On Vacation In Montana

Fox New host Tucker Carlson is in Montana for a vacation, and he got an earful of what people really think about him when a man approached him and let loose with invectives.

The man in the video (which is quickly going viral) is named Dan Bailey, and he told Carlson:

“You are the worst human being known to mankind. I want you to know that.”

Bailey then posted the video to Instagram, along with this message, which goes even further in spelling out how he feels about Carlson, who in recent weeks has been telling viewers not to get the COVID-19 vaccine:

“It’s not everyday you get to tell someone they are the worst person in the world and really mean it! What an asshole!

“This man has killed more people with vaccine misinformation, he has supported extreme racism, he is a fascist and does more to rip this country apart than anyone that calls themselves an American.”

Carlson has also said that anyone who sees a child with a protective mask on should call child protective services and report the parents, exhorting viewers:

“Masks have always been incompatible with a free society. Masks are for the guilty. They’re signifiers of shame and submission.

“Next time you see someone in a mask on the sidewalk or on the bike path, do not hesitate, ask politely but firmly, would you please take off your mask? Science shows there is no reason for you to be wearing it. Your mask is making me uncomfortable. We should do that, and we should keep doing it until wearing a mask outside is roughly as socially acceptable as lighting a Marlboro in an elevator. It’s repulsive.”

This country is facing a pandemic of the unvaccinated at the moment, with coronavirus cases rising most rapidly in red states such as Arkansas, Florida, and Missouri. The Delta variant of the disease is also much stronger and more deadly than previous iterations of COVID.

But despite that, Tucker Carlson and others at Fox are spreading lies and conspiracy theories about the vaccine. They have blood on their hands, and yet they don’t seem to give a damn about the lives they’ve destroyed.

Dan Bailey is absolutely right: Tucker Carlson is the worst person in the world, and he deserves to hear that each and every day of his life.
