Foreign Policy Fox News WTF?!

Tucker Carlson Says Lindsey Graham’s ‘Personal Life’ Explains His Support For Ukraine

According to Fox News host Tucker Carlson, the reason Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) is so eager to give more military aid to Ukraine as it continues to fight against a Russian invasion is because of the senator’s “personal life.”

Mediaite reports that Carlson made his comments on his show Thursday evening, seeming to suggest that Graham’s sexuality might be in question. The senator is 67 and has never been married, leading some to say that he’s a closeted homosexual.

“So, the other day Lindsey Graham came out–” Carlson began, taking a long pause “–the Republican from South Carolina, and said that he agreed with Joe Biden and Zelensky.

Carlson then played a clip of Graham remarking:

“How does this war end? When Russia breaks and they take Putin out. Anything short of that, the war’s gonna continue. To ask the Ukrainians to give Russia part of the country after all this death and destruction is not gonna happen. To signal a ceasefire, Russia will take the opportunity to rearm and come at them again. So, we’re in it to win it and the only way you’re gonna win it is to break the Russian military and have somebody in Russia take Putin out.”

That led Carlson to tell his viewers:

“So, it’s really hard to overstate how crazy this is. And you don’t want to play shrink and wonder about, you know, what emptiness at the core of Lindsey Graham’s personal life causes him to identify so strongly with a country he’s not a citizen of. Something’s going on there.”

According to Carlson, continuing to assist the Ukrainians will only lead to wider conflict, including a catastrophic war between the U.S. and Russia.

“What happens then?. Well, the world’s largest land mass falls into ungovernable chaos.”

Leave it to Fox News to try and slag a member of the GOP simply because they don’t like his foreign policy aims. What’s next? Will Carlson begin suggesting that Graham is a transsexual? With Fox, you just never know how low they’ll go.
