Tucker Carlson held nothing back in his monologue on last night’s show, going after conservative leaders including the president for not responding sufficiently, in his view, to the protests and rioting that have become commonplace in America in recent days.


After deriding public figures, including Mike Pence and Nikki Haley and powerful insiders with Trump’s ear, like Jared Kushner, Carlson turned his attention to Trump himself. (Mediaite)

“What about the president? Where was he during all of this?” Carlson asked. The host then aired footage of Fox News reporter Leland Vittert, who was attacked by protestors near the White House this weekend.

“That was in Lafayette Square in the center of our capital city,” Carlson said. “The tape raised a troubling question. If you can’t keep a Fox News correspondent from getting attacked directly across from your house, how can you protect my family? How are you going to protect the country? How hard are you trying?”

Carlson noted that the morning after, while Trump took to Twitter to note that he and his family were safe, “he did not mention protecting the rest of the nation, much of which was then on fire.”

Carlson said that for Trump’s supporters, “this was a distressing moment.” He added that if Trump fails to protect Americans, “you’re done, it’s over,” pointing out that Nero, the infamous Roman emperor, is remembered for abandoning his “nation in a time of crisis.”

Do you think Carlson’s harsh criticism is fair, or has his view been clouded? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below!

Tucker Carlson is an outlaw which he learned when he was at CNN – he has agreed with Avenatti to unfounded accusations against Trump and could never keep us from hearing his murmured slanders against this and that including we citizens that he is so good at casually inserting into his recitations so he’s stupid too for never catching on that we caught on – his species of so-in-love-with-himself-that-his-every-word-is magnificent-and-must-be-swallowed-hook-line-and-sinker is why Daily Caller IS NOT in any intelligent’s person’s repertoire for daily reading b/c Tucker is a hack of the worst order and is doing well for Rupert’s son Lachlan Murdouch’s murderous intent to kill off FOX Free News b/c most viewers are down to three personalities they trust: Harris and Gutfeld and Trish only they fired Regan b/c she was Kayleigh McEnany before we got Kayleigh. – Tucker also was just like Facebook and Twitter and youtube and censoring but that’s suddenly stopped as soon as President Trump signed the Order to vacate those censors – Tucker is also a Libertarian which is as close to Pelosi’s communism as he can get without admitting he is communist too – Tucker’s trashing the President is right up his duplicitous alley.

I don’t know where your rhetoric is coming from, but I feel you are incorrect in your response. No one should believe what the media projects all of the time…EVER, but Carlson is right; we as average Americans are afraid and watching this craziness unfold, and praying to God, that at least our President can get control of this completely out of control situation. Carlson is an intelligent person and he usually perceives very accurately what is going on and how many, many of the people feel seeing this and trying to understand what in the world is going on!!

You really do not want the us military in the streets. The guard is one thing, but regular combat troops are another entirely. They are trained not be policemen but to kill and break things and they will not hesitate to shoot if it is between them and they objective and their own safety.

I love how well Tucker can tell it like it is!! I am seeing things about Kushner, Nikki Haley, etc differently!! President Trump better get on the ball, because I want him to win in 2020, but he needs to step up, stop texting, and do a lot more to stop the violence on the cities, and protect all of us!!

The president has told each state what to do and he has been at it all along. He said if they don’t get their National Guard out he will send the military. These are terrorists doing this damage and they are paid by the left wing millionaires that are out to destroy our country as we know it. Some of the governors are with their ideas. What he said about looters needing shot is true. They need stopped and deported. TRUMP PENCE 2020. VOTE RED ALL THE WAY OR WE LOSE OUR COUNTRY AND CONSTITUTION!!!

President Trump very cleverly handed the Pandemic Lock-down problems to the Fascist-Leftist Governore – who in turn handed the problem to the Fascist-Leftist Mayors. Being the fools they are they exceeded their authority and were backed by equally foolish Leftist-Fascist congressmen.
Now the angry laid off Voters are protesting Years of Democrat endorsed Police Thuggery and are letting the worst of those Leftist States and Cities hear their protests. Those politicians know how the voters really feel about their leftist lunacy and called in ANTIFA to organize the leftist protests. And now the Ringleaders behind Antifa have exposed themselves along with the TDS elected representatives and and DHS has declared them terrorists – do tell.

Local City and State Authorities have the primary responsibility to respond, the President shouldn’t step in until all else failed, unfortunately it’s got to that point. The POTUS in local and State affairs is not a first responder, he is the Commander in Chief of the Nations Military, NOT local law enforcement or even the National Guard who is under the control of Individual States unless he takes action to Federalize them. The President did suggest the States should step up their game in a timely manner but at that time he, as he should been only an observer.

I agree with Tucker, but each states Governor is in charge his state, in the USA, each state is it’s own boss, and their all united together. The leader of each state must take charge and arrest and jail these thugs, thieves and arsonists, NOW!!!!!

William I agree with your comments about state governors and mayors handling their states problems everything is not the President’s responsibility. I don’t know if it will be of help to have the President use the Insurrection or Riot Act; how would he protect the innocent. The democrats comments are not adding to resolving their states problems. It is always easier to solve a problem with their personal viewpoint when the problem has already been solved.

The only way the president can get involved including in DC is to declare Marshall law. Otherwise we are at the mercy of the local officials, especially the Mayors. Carlson knows that or at least should know that so I believe there was some posturing going on.

Hey Judy, it is NOT Trump’s place to do the job that the Democommie Mayors and Governors refuse to do. I don’t have any doubt that you will see Federal Troops mobilize soon, if they States don’t get their acts together and quell the riots. These were NEVER protests. They have always been RIOTS! Just one more thing by the Dims to take Trump out in November. Either you are a Trump supporter, or you aren’t. Tucker Carlson says some good things, on some important topics. But he is dead wrong on this one!

I agree! I have always loved how Tucker informs his viewers on news no one else talks about. He has an interesting perspective and sometimes delivers a view that is difficult to hear, but often true.
I do not want the Dems to take over bc they will destroy our country – sell us to China, Europize us, dumb down our economy so that Americans get used to handouts and then they control everything.
However, I do believe that the President is in a difficult position. He needs to respect each state’s autonomy even when the top official doesn’t know what to do (and what they should do is ask Trump’s help). But this would not sit right with the Democrat party and therefore these Governers will not ask for help.
So Trump’s only option is to either order in the National Guard or the military and he’s been blasted for doing so.
Now Tucker is right that its inexcusable to have Antifa,I suspect, attacking a reporter right in front of the White House. And the President’s comment the next day that he and his family were ok and safe without mentioning all those who were not safe and ok bc of the rioters was a serious missed opportunity.
I pray the President can safely navigate this tightrope bc we need him, his strength, his courage, his ability to understand our country’s greatest dilemnas.

Racism has been a problem for decades. Why the color of a person’s skin matters or determines how that person should be treated, I don’t know. To say it matters, focuses on an aspect of a person they have no control over.
However, tho racism exists (and shouldn’t), I don’t believe the police officer who killed George Floyd was demonstrating his racism (tho he may indeed be a racist). He was demonstrating his sociopathic tendencies and should NEVER have been a police officer (or anyone with power).
Unfortunately, there are those in power – education, politics, law enforcement, military, businesses – who have these tendencies and should be weaned out of such jobs where they have the power over others.

I agree with you Ed. Our President told the mayors and govenors of those cities to quit being politically correct and got their asses to work for the people. Because if they don’t he WILL and justice will be swift.

This anti- government raid on America is really not about a man of color dying at the hands of an over zealous Police Officer! The officer has been charged and the violence, looting, burning & destroying personal property & Businesses keeps escalating! These criminals don’t care that a lot of hard working citizens are trying to get back to work, catch up on rent or house payments, feed their families and not face foreclosure or eviction notices. This is not a Racial problem even though a lot of left media, social media & etc. would love to make People believe. OPEN YOUR EYES PEOPLE, the ones committing crimes on our streets are well paid ( Communist Soros & his puppets) and are all races, very young & impressionable. The Left is trying to force President Trump’s hand into declaring Martial Law so Demoncraps can scream Dictator!! This along with Pandemic seems a little too convenient & the timing is exactly what Socialist want before 2020 Election!! But hopefully People will not buy into the Socialist Elite Propaganda or the Country as WE know it will no longer be a Democracy!! The hipocracy is SO overwhelming, OUR PRESIDENT who has endured more crap from the Dems than any other President in Our History since Lincoln carries a Bible across the street and Declares “We are One Nation Under God” & the left goes nuts & calls him a hipocrit. Then Quid Pro Joe goes in a Church, after finally coming out of the basement, he’s called a hero??? People need to be reminded of Our Country’s History, it was the Democratic Party who was FOR SLAVERY AND NO EQUAL RIGHTS FOR PEOPLE
OF COLOR!!!

Dutsi, I agree with everything you say. I’m so sick of Democrats n RHINOS bashing our President when he says or does anything but it’s ok for the left to do the same thing and get away with it. Dems want Trump to call in Military so if ppl get hirt they will blame him and call in Marshall law and try to destroy Trump and try to take away our guns, I say try cuz we the Patriotic ppl refuse to let this happen . The dem governors n mayors are declaring an Allegiance to the ONE WORLD ORDER. that dems are pushing on us right now, ppl be vigilant. I ‘m wondering what about all those MEN REFUGEES that Obama brought over here and put into those training camps? Where is the reporter that several years ago videoed those camps all over NY . I think we need to see those videos again to refresh us about the fact that we will be destroyed from WITHIN. Is this the time for them to be released on us. Obama did say he is going to get involved. There is a dem governor on video, I don’t know her name.for sure so i won’t say it but she is PLEDGING ALLEGIANCE TO THE O W O . ENOUGH IS ENOUGH we the Patriotic Citizens of America DEMAND a vote in this election to return all the STATUES of our History. The young terrorists traitors that took over Seattle know nothing about our History and that’s why they are repeating it. I’m 76 and have seen a lot in my lifetime and these protests have divided us more in 3 weeks than obama did in 8 years. I don’t condone what the police did , not to anyone, but it certainly isn’t worth 20 more ppl dead and millions of damage to our Country. We are now officially a THIRD WORLD COUNTRY . Vote RED OR AMERICA IS DEAD, We have already lost our freedom of speech, if we say ALL LIVES MATTER WE GET FIRED, AN EDITOR PRINTED ALL BUILDINGS MATTER TOO AND GOT FIRED, THIS IS DISGUSTING CUZ ALL LIVES AND BUILDINGS DO MATTER. I WONDER, DID SOROS GIVE OUT MAPS? IT SEEMS THAT MOST SMALL BUSINESS’S THAT WERE BURNED TO THE GROUND BELONGED TO BLACK OWNERS, so please, tell me just whose in the wrong here, I believe Democrats n RHINOS are at the helm, actually ever since they introduced the kkk and slavery, they have been running the show. Time to vote them out and vote TRUMP/ PENCE TO FINISH WHAT THEY HAVE BEEN DOING IN THE LAST 4 YEARS WHICH HAS MADE LIFE MUCH BETTER for us all. , WE ARE NOT PERFECT PPL OR A PERFECT COUNTRY HOWEVER IT’S LIKE BEING A PARENT, WE HAVE BEEN LEARNING AND GETTING BETTER AS WE GROW. SO NOW WE STAY AMERICA BY VOTING RED OR WE SWITCH TO A SOCIALIST COMMUNIST COUNTRY . I PREFER THE LATTER. SAVE AMERICA AND OUR FREEDOMS AS WE KNOW THEM. GOD BLESS OUR PRESIDENT. AMEN. ?????????????????????

I understand Tucker’s frustration. We are all sick and fed up but the President is only one man who has the weight of the world what is back just day one. He gets enough criticism from the left, the media, and many many others. So get off of his back Tucker. He told the State’s leaders what to do and it’s nobody’s fault but there’s that they didn’t do it. So be mad at them not, President Trump. If you can’t say anything good , then just pray for him which we all should be doing. I appreciate you Tucker, but KEEP YOUR MOUTH OFF OF MY PRESIDENT.

Tucker.. gets his pay check from Fox News, excuse me but I think Carlson’s a smart enough guy to know what’s going on as we all are. These are paid riotous thugs sent in to cause division, fear and to expell calm. There has been a battle going on ever since President Trump has been put in. Those that want him out have been doing everything they can to disrupt and rid him of this office.. we know that. President Trump will win in November and they know that, so there they have sent in the thugs, to scare us and intimidate. The liberal mayors and Gov’s are standing down and allowing this. We must send in the troops to arrest and take back our land.
