Fox News host Tucker Carlson tore into Kamala Harris this week, calling her “fake” and saying she “doesn’t understand the point” around why she needs to visit the US-Mexico border because the media treats her like “a god.”
During a fiery segment on Tucker Carlson Tonight, he aired a clip of Harris being asked by Lester Holt in an interview: “Do you have any plans to visit the border?”
She replied “At some point, you know, we are going to the border. We’ve been to the border. So this whole thing about the border. We’ve been to the border. We’ve been to the border.”
He then pointed out to her “You haven’t been to the border,” to which she replied with the cringe-inducing response: “And I haven’t been to Europe. (laughs) And I mean, I don’t understand the point that you’re making.”
Tucker then went off:
I don’t understand the point that you’re making”? Of course, she doesn’t understand the point. No one ever asks her real questions. When was the last time that happened? Tulsi Gabbard may have been the last person to do it. In the years since Harris has continued to ascend. How did she do that? Purely on the basis of how she looks.
Meanwhile, because it is so improbable that someone this unimpressive has become so powerful, the people in charge are forced to assure us, almost with hysteria, that she is brilliant and impressive. In order to prepare the rest of us for the inevitable march to the White House, they’ve created a Soviet-level cult of personality around her.
Carlson then slammed the mainstream media, who he accused of attempting to portray Harris as “a god” that is perfect and can’t be judged.
“We’re not exaggerating, look around. The Los Angeles Times, which was a news organization at one point, announced Harris was getting her own section in the newspaper. That is news dedicated exclusively to Kamala Harris. Readers can get their Business News, their International News, and their critical Kamala Harris News. She’s now her own category of news. The paper called the new section “Covering Kamala Harris,” Carlson said.
“Not surprisingly, the first dispatch from the LA Times’ new Kamala Harris bureau didn’t focus on her policy accomplishments. That would have been a pretty thin section. Instead, it covered how she looked,” he said.
“Kamala Harris is all kinds of firsts: the first woman, a woman of color, Black woman, mixed-race woman, and South Asian elected to national office,” he added.
“So, in other words, what really matters about Kamala Harris, and what should matter to you, the LA Times told, is her DNA. Disney went further than that. Kamala Harris, the company explained to your children recently, isn’t actually a political leader. She’s more like a god,” he said.
