Tucker Carlson Defends President Trump In Epic Rant

On Wednesday night during his primetime show on Fox News, host Tucker Carlson defended President Trump against the Democratic party and their lap dogs in the media.
Carlson took an interesting approach by calling the President a "full-blown BS artist" as well as a "compulsive self-promoter," but used this to defend the President.
“One of the reasons progressives say they hate Donald Trump is because he lies a lot,” Carlson said at the beginning of the segment. “Trump, they’ll tell you, is a committed liar.”
"As the Post points out, the lying began at the inauguration," Carlson said while referencing to the Washington Post fact checkers. "Perhaps you remember this claim, which, at the time, deeply offended official Washington,” Carlson said before going on to play a clip of Trump claiming that his inauguration drew the largest audience “ever.”
“We’re not going to lie to you. That was untrue. The crowd at the 2017 inauguration was not the largest ever measured on the National Mall. Sorry, it wasn’t.”
“Why did the president claim it was? Well, because that’s who he is,” Carlson continued. “Donald Trump is a salesman. He’s a talker. He’s a boaster, a booster, a compulsive self-promoter. At times, he’s a full-blown BS artist. If Trump hadn’t gotten rich in real estate, he could have made a fortune selling cars.”
Carlson said that “most people know this” then questioned, “Is lying really the reason the left despises Donald Trump?”
"Or could the real problem be, as is so often the case, the exact opposite of what they claim it is?" Carlson said, arguing that most controversy in surrounding President Trump doesn't come when he "told some whopper or exaggerated his own accomplishments" but when "he tells the truth."
"Truth is the real threat to their power,” Carlson said, adding that “there is an unspoken agreement among the people in charge of our country not to talk about what has happened to it.”
“They are personally implicated in its decline, for one thing. Often, they’re profiting from it,” Carlson said. “The last thing they want is a national conversation about what went wrong, and so they maintain an increasingly strict policy of mandatory reality avoidance.”
The Fox News host wasn't done. He then backed up all of his claims with proof including the time where President Trump referred to Haiti, El Salvador and other poor countries as “shithole countries.”
“Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?” Trump said in 2017 which was met with moral outrage from the Left.
Carlson said Trump was “speaking candidly” about immigration at the time.
“During a conversation with advisers, Trump asked why so many immigrants come to the U.S. from impoverished countries. If immigration is supposed to make America better, he asked, shouldn’t we try to draw people from the most advanced societies?” Carlson said. “Well, it’s an obvious question, you could debate it, of course, but it’s a real question.”
The Fox News host then showed clips of left wing commentators on CNN noting, “Oh the posturing."
“But let’s be real. Is there a single living person who disagrees with Trump’s assessment of Haiti?” Carlson asked. “Probably not, certainly Haitian immigrants agree with him. That’s why they moved here. Nobody on any of the CNN panels you just saw is locating to Haiti anytime soon for the same reason.”
Carlson then brought up the time where President Trump called Baltimore a “rodent infested mess.”
“Baltimore may be the most depressing big city on the eastern seaboard. Ever been there? Everyone in Washington’s been there. It’s only an hour away. If you want to take the Acela from Washington to New York, you have to pass through Baltimore,” Carlson said.
“And if it’s daylight out, there’s no denying the awful reality of the place. This summer, the president told the rest of the world what’s it like,” he said also noting, “But the obvious follow-up is, why is Baltimore so bad? How did it get so poor and hopeless?”
“That place is still sad and desperate and screwed up, and absolutely not one person in Washington, D.C., cares at all that it is, except [to] the extent that they want to make certain that you never talk about Baltimore, because thinking or talking about Baltimore, or for that matter, thinking or talking about mass immigration ... or any of that might point out their own egregious failures and selfishness’s, which are profound,” Carlson said.
