Politically speaking, I consider myself more in the center and at times maybe a bit left of center. So generally I am not a fan of Fox News.
But, I will say that I sometimes do enjoy Tucker Carlson. I first started listening to him on a the Bubba the Love Sponge Show out of Tampa, FL.
I feel like Carlson can be very fair, even though he works for Fox News. He should be commended for that.
Carlson interviewed Trump last night and asked some good questions about wiretapping and Trump’s tweeting habits.
Carlson: you tweet, the former administration wiretapped me, surveilled me, at Trump Tower during the last election. How did you find out? You said, I just found out. How did you learn that?
Trump: Well, I’ve been reading about things. I read in, I think it was January 20 a “New York Times” article where they were talking about wiretapping. There was an article, I think they used the exact term. I read other things. I watched your friend Bret Baier the day previous where he was talking about certain very complex sets of things happening, and wiretapping. I said, wait a minute, there’s a lot of wiretapping being talked about. I’ve been seeing a lot of things. Now, for the most part, I’m not going to discuss it, because we have it before the committee and we will be submitting things before the committee very soon that hasn’t been submitted as of yet. But it’s potentially a very serious situation.
Carlson later asked Trump: Why not wait to tweet about it until you can prove it? Don’t you devalue your words when you can’t provide evidence?
Trump replied: Well, because “The New York Times” wrote about it. Not that I respect “The New York Times”. I call it the failing “New York Times”. But they did write on January 20 using the word wiretap.
Regardless of what you believe or the politicians you support, you should all have a major problem with interactions like this from our President.
Holy shit, this is our President. This is the so-called “leader” of the free world. Trump based a very dangerous allegation against a previous president because Trump’s “been reading about things.”
Hey Duh’Merica, keep believing that everything negative said or reported about Trump is a lie. Keep believing that everything negative about Trump is “fake news.” Keep believing that Trump is not a politician and that he wants to “Make America Great Again.”
You are all fools. Trump only cares about himself and making his brand and his family more wealthy. One day, this is what the history books will say.
Cheers, China and now Russia wins again.
