Fox News host Tucker Carlson hammered Senior White House advisor Jared Kushner Monday night. The irreverent one thumped President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and he trucked Trump as well.
“If you can’t keep a Fox News correspondent from getting attacked directly across the street from your house, how can you protect my family?” he asked. “How are you going to protect the country? How are you trying?”
Carlson added, “On Twitter the next morning, the president reassured America that he and his family were just fine. The federally funded bodyguards had kept them safe. He did not mention protecting the rest of the nation, much of which was then on fire. He seemed aware only of himself.”
“No matter what,’ they’ll tell you,” Carlson said of a handful of advisers around the president, “‘our voters aren’t going anywhere. The trailer parks are rock-solid. What choice do they have? They’ve got to vote for us.'”
He declared, “Jared Kushner, for one, has made that point out loud. No one has more contempt for Donald Trump’s voters than Jared Kushner does. And no one expresses it more frequently. In 2016, Donald Trump ran as a law and order candidate because he meant it, and his views remain fundamentally unchanged today. But the president’s famously sharp instincts, the ones that won him the presidency almost four years ago, have been since subverted at every level by Jared Kushner. This is true on immigration, on foreign policy and especially on law enforcement.”
In addition, “The first requirement of leadership is that you watch over the people in your care.” Carlson continued, “That’s what soldiers want from their officers. It’s what families need from their fathers. It’s what voters demand from their presidents.”
Then argued, “Donald Trump is the president. Presidents save countries, and that’s their job and that’s why we hire them. It’s that simple.”
Though Trump’s instincts seem to have been to “crack down on rioters,” Carlson speculated that the president has “been talked out of it by Jared Kushner and by aides that Kushner has hired and controls.”
Adding that, “Kushner’s assumption, apparently, is that African American voters like looting,” he concluded. “That is wrong. Normal Americans of all colors hate looting. Obviously. Why wouldn’t they hate looting? They’re decent people.” Tucker starts the week with both guns blazing.
