Tucker Carlson Says It’s ‘Appalling’ Trump Hasn’t Sent Money To Any Of The Jan. 6 Rioters

Proving yet again that he’s one of the most willfully ignorant people on the planet, Fox News host Tucker Carlson says he’s upset that failed, one-term former President Donald Trump hasn’t sent a dime of money to any of the Jan. 6 rioters.

According to Mediaite, Carlson had this to say during an interview he was conducting:

Carlson, while interviewing right-wing commentator Julie Kelly, said he finds it “appalling” that Trump had yet to donate any money to his supporters who were arrested on January 6th at the U.S. Capitol.

Since leaving office, Trump has continued to raise large sums of money from supporters with claims to fight election fraud and help elect Republicans. As of July, the last federal reporting date, Trump’s three major fundraising operations declared more than $100 million in cash on hand.

Specifically, Carlson said he found it “appalling” that Trump hadn’t shared any of that $100 million with the insurrectionists:

“People are going to be offended that I ask this, but I can’t control myself. What about the president on whose behalf they were gathered that day? Has anybody sent them money? The people around him, Brad Parscale, all these people are getting rich, right? Complaining that the last election was rigged, which it clearly was, obviously. And they’re making all this money and all these people are sending all this money down to Florida. But is any of that money going to defend these people who went to this rally on behalf of that candidate?”

Kelly, who has been fond of sharing election conspiracy theories, agreed with Carlson, remarking:

“Not that I know of. And I will say no. No. And it’s a question that I have been asking myself and I a lot of them have been asking too. A lot of them were there to support Trump. They were there to protest the election being taken from him unlawfully. But aside, really, from a few comments about political prisoners — he has said a few things about Ashli Babbitt — to my knowledge… no, there has not been any financial aide coming from anyone of a prominent position to help these people.”

That led Carlson to go all-in on his condemnation of the notoriously greedy Trump:

“I just find that appalling. I really do. I really find that appalling.”

Do you, Tucker? Then why don’t you give Dotard Donnie a phone call and tell him the exact same thing you just said? He’d probably take your call, and what would it hurt?

You’d think Carlson would know that Trump isn’t exactly known for being generous with his money. He’s planning to use that $100 million to try and run for another term in 2024 or to help pay some of his loans, many of which are coming due in the near future.

What’s really “appalling” is that it took this long for Tucker Carlson to temporarily pull his head out of his ass, look around, and acknowledge that Donald Trump doesn’t give a damn about anyone but himself.
