Tucker Carlson's gone mad for views
At this rate, we’ll be seeing him referee a cage match between Geraldo and Alex Jones in a few weeks, and after that, he’ll be announcing that Hillary Clinton had an alien’s baby.
It’s not surprising that Tucker Carlson threw his lot in with Elon Musk, headlining an X/Twitter streaming version of his once unassailable Fox News show. Carlson was defenestrated as a consquence of his contribution to Fox’s near-billion dollar debacle—the settlement with Dominion Voting Systems. Now Carlson’s become just one more grifter scraping the MAGAverse for views and relevance. It’s pretty sad to see.
First, there was Carlson’s “interview” with Donald Trump, streamed opposite the Republican debate. It was recorded in advance, and was a rambling, incoherent mess by the former president who’s now fighting dozens of felony charges in four different court trials.
Now, to go even lower, Carlson interviewed a man who has been pitching the story that he had a cocaine and sodomy-filled night in a hotel with Barack Obama. I didn’t watch one second of it (as I scrolled, it played with no sound). This guy, Larry Sinclair, first told his tale in 2008, and it never gained traction because nobody believed him. But Carlson, who knows better, gave the guy a platform because, well, his audience gets titillated by this kind of gross, insane stuff. It’s fantasy for MAGAland inhabitants, who’d love to imagine it’s true—the more salacious, the better.
But let’s get real. In order to believe Sinclair, we’d have to believe that Obama got a limo driver to hook him up with a guy who couldn’t get a date in a blind cowboy bar in the Tenderloin district of San Francisco if he bought rounds for the house. Then Obama enjoys it so much that he invites the man to come back for more cocaine a second time. And Obama apparently never did this with anyone else who would admit it. And the limo driver, the hotel staff, and anyone else who might have witnessed this (or presumably any of the other times Obama had done it), have been silenced.
To buy this Playgirl Obama fantasy, one would have to presume that Obama must have had everyone killed except this guy Larry Sinclair. Larry is so special that the Deep State-fueled Obama kill squads couldn’t get to him. He’s a superhero sodomist who considers “grabbing them by the p***y” to be far beneath his skill level.
Carlson does know better. He’s lying on purpose, feeding his viewers pure fiction for their own pleasure and his profit. Mediaite editor-in-chief Aidan McLaughlin posted on X/Twitter, “Hard to be shocked by how dishonest Carlson’s commentary is these days, but this is a pretty brazen example: he says Sinclair’s claims are credible because he took a lie detector test. Carlson declines to inform his viewers that Sinclair failed the test.”
Sinclair is lying, and Carlson put his lies on X/Twitter, to collect money from Elon Musk, whose foray into streaming media, if it were SpaceX, would still be blowing up rockets instead of successfully reaching the ISS. Presumably, Musk is A-OK with Carlson spewing this level of pure sewage from his platform. Maybe he should be asking Carlson why X lost 60% of advertising revenue and can’t get it back, instead of blaming the Jews?
It’s really sad to see Carlson, who I never watched at Fox, and honestly never liked, in his public persona, stoop down to this level of dog poop. From what I have heard from others, and stories I have read by people with no real agenda, Carlson is a perfectly polite and nice guy if you catch him fishing or walking around the small Maine town he calls home. But somewhere in his brain, he’s got this unscratchable itch to be relevant, heard, and important to—I dunno—people who buy stories like Sinclair’s.
It must be a sickness. If I had Carlson’s money, I’d probably retire and play golf, or fish, or travel and do philanthropy. Carlson chose to headline a guy who doesn’t deserve 10 seconds of airtime anywhere. He did this just weeks after interviewing the previous POTUS. At this rate, we’ll be seeing him referee a cage match between Geraldo and Alex Jones in a few weeks, and after that, he’ll be announcing that Hillary Clinton had an alien’s baby, and the baby inhabited Taylor Swift body!
OK I kid. But I don’t think I’m that far off.
