Fox’s Tucker Carlson Praises Trump’s Speech That Borrowed Heavily from His Show
Fox News host Tucker Carlson lavished praise Monday night on President Donald Trump’s Independence Day speech at Mount Rushmore, claiming it was “probably the single best speech” the president has ever given.
The Fox News star’s love of the dark and divisive speech might not come as much of a surprise, considering that the president’s address is rooted in Carlson’s most recent monologues.
Carlson, who has suddenly seen his name bandied about as a possible 2024 GOP presidential candidate amid his inflammatory commentary about the Black Lives Matter “mob,” recently cautioned the president that he might lose his bid for re-election unless he begins rounding up protesters and charging them as terrorists.
Following the president’s speech, which featured warnings that “angry mobs” are tearing down “our most sacred memorials” and bringing about a “left-wing cultural revolution,” Carlson appeared much more optimistic about Trump’s electoral chances.
“It was a road map for his re-election message, but more than that, it was a road map for the country itself. Equality, decency, pride in our nation. Those were the themes,” Carlson proclaimed.
