Tucker Carlson of Fox News has blasted the media and accused them of not covering President Biden the same way as Trump when he was the president.
According to the TV host, who accused mainstream media of being the nation’s “most corrupt institution,” the media are only focusing on the positive sides of Biden’s life and actions while choosing to ignore scandals surrounding his family.
“To hear the mainstream media tell it, Joe Biden is like America’s dad. A little blunt sometimes, but honest. A straight shooter, solid, reliable, steady. That’s Joe Biden,” Carlson sarcastically said as he pointed out alleged differences in the way Trump and Biden are being treated by the media.
“Above all, Joe Biden is a family man who took the train back to Wilmington every night to the 10,000-square-foot estate a campaign donor bought for him in exchange for unregistered lobbying on behalf of credit card companies. But he’s not like the last guy.”
The Fox News anchor then went on to blast the media for not covering the scandals of the Biden family while insisting that the love between Joe and Jill is “as real as climate change.”
“Joe Biden’s family’s refreshingly normal. There aren’t any weird sex scandals or protracted drug problems or ongoing criminal investigations you’ve got to worry about,” Carlson added in his sarcastic rant.
“Want to know what the Bidens are doing this weekend? A recent headline in Newsweek will tell you, ‘Joe Biden Wins in Mario Kart Race Against Granddaughter at Camp David’.
“Wholesome stuff like that, not secretly lobbying for China or impregnating strippers from Arkansas. No, they’re playing Mario Kart with the grandkids, just like you.”
After taking aim at Joe and Jill’s relationship, Carlson lashed out at journalists and called them a “herd” with a talent for lying.
“All of us lie from time to time, that’s the human condition. Imagine, though, if lying was your job. Imagine forcing yourself to tell lies all day about every subject in ways that were so transparent and so outlandish that there is no way the people listening to you could possibly believe anything you said,” he added.
“If you’re a normal, non-sociopathic person, the answer obviously is no.
“So you’ve got to kind of respect the people who can. They’re like Olympians in reverse. They achieve feats so dishonorable that you gasp in horror as you watch them, but at the same time, you’ve got to respect those skills.”
