(USA Features) Fox News host Tucker Carlson said Friday he sees clear signs that the mainstream media has obviously begun to turn on President Joe Biden as well as some top officials in his administration.
“We’ve learned a lot in the past five days. Maybe the important thing we’ve learned is that Joe Biden is not capable of running the country. Joe Biden is senile. Saying that out loud is not an attack on Biden,” Carlson began as he kicked off his opening monologue.
He went on to say that everyone in Biden’s inner circle has long been aware that he is “senile” but they allowed him to run for president anyway and that he won largely with the help of the major left-leaning press.
But, he added, there has been a shift in attitudes toward Biden as the botched withdrawal from Afghanistan became a global embarrassment for the U.S.
“What is going on here? These are literally the people who got Joe Biden elected. He wouldn’t be president without these people. Now, just seven months in, they’re telling you he has failed personally? It does not make sense,” he said.
“In the last week, we’ve been reminded how tiny our domestic concerns actually are. They’re neuroses born of narcissism. A Chinese flu virus? Please,” Carlson said.
“That’s hardly the scariest thing going on in the world right now. Not even close. The entire United States military has just been humiliated by illiterate peasants in turbans — and if that’s not insulting enough, many of them were carrying our rifles as they did it,” he added.
“It makes you wonder about the future of the West, and who will replace us when we’re gone,” Carlson continued.
“Someone in authority probably ought to be thinking about that, and a lot of other things,” he said. ”
“What will we do when the Chinese finally move against Taiwan? How will we respond when there’s a credible challenge to the U.S. dollar as the world’s reserve currency? Etc. Etc.”
“All we can say for certain at this point is that Joe Biden won’t be making any of the big decisions going forward. Biden isn’t capable of being the president in crisis. So who will be? We can’t say,” he noted further.
“But it’s clear if you watch closely that things are changing very fast in Washington.”
“The people around Biden are moving away from him, in ways that are not subtle. Why is this happening now? Was it always the plan?” said Carlson.
“Did the party that hates white guys finally realize it was being led by one? Again, we don’t know the answer. But the signs are everywhere, and they’re strikingly obvious.”
“Some of Biden’s most senior appointees are contradicting him in public. If you cover politics, it’s shocking to see that. This is a violation of the first and most ruthlessly enforced rule in any White House: Don’t diminish the boss,” said Carlson.
The host went on to cite instances this week of pushback, including Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin who directly contradicted Biden in a call with reporters, telling them that some Americans were attacked by Taliban fighters and beaten as they attempted to flee.
Moments earlier, Biden had said there were no reports of Americans having trouble with the militant group.
Carlson noted that CNN hosts, who have been notoriously faithful to Biden, have now turned on him after playing a clip of Brianna Keilar criticizing Biden’s withdrawal.
“Afghanistan is hardly Biden’s first disaster. As of tonight, our southern border has collapsed, the murder rate is spiking in our cities, the COVID vaccines do not work, inflation’s out of control, and the country’s entire population of school children hasn’t been educated in more than a year,” he said.
“All of that’s been going on. None of that seemed to bother CNN in the slightest. In fact, they reserved their energy to attack anyone who noticed those trends. But now, suddenly their anchors are weeping on the air because Americans are trapped in Afghanistan,” he added.
“They don’t notice the 70,000 who die every year from drug overdoses. But this has sent them into a self-riotous rage. Call us cynical, but we don’t buy it. Something else is going on here. We don’t know what it is, exactly, but it’s pretty obvious.”
