Good Day World!
The rumor is true.
Tucker Carlson, Fox's talking head with no brain, dissed his master Trump in an op-ed! I know... it's shocking.
Is it a sign that even Trump's supporters are gradually slipping away and going back to their basements and hidey-holes? I'm not so sure.
So here's what the right-wing media star said, along with another headcase, Neil Patel (the co-founder of the Daily Caller), in an editorial published on 10/3/19:
"Donald Trump should not have been on the phone with a foreign head of state encouraging another country to investigate his political opponent, Joe Biden. Some Republicans are trying, but there's no way to spin this as a good idea.
"Like a lot of things that Trump does, it was pretty over-the-top. Our leader's official actions should not be about politics. Those two things need to remain separate. Once those in control of our government use it to advance their political goals, we become just another of the world's many corrupt countries. America is better than that."
How about that?
Does this op-ed mean there's trouble in Trump propaganda land? Is a number one minion jumping ship? I don't think so. It could be a new tactic to defend our liar-in-chief, according to one political analyst;
NBC's, Benjy Sarlin, thinks the op-ed was a "...pretty massive signal to pivot away from defending the behavior (which has been a brutal slog so far for those who've tried) and instead toward arguing impeachment goes too far."
Still, I'm surprised. I never seen a political hack of Carlson's ilk say something sane... (and dare I say truthful?), even for a few sentences.
I know Carlson will continue to carry Trump's bucket of piss. He's got viewers to please and propaganda to spread.
I think we can properly conclude Carlson's sudden foray into truth-telling was just a mirage in a desert of deceit.
Time for me to walk on down the road...
