Democrats are searching for any hint of cracks in conservative support for Donald Trump.
They may have found it on Fox News, of all places.
And you won’t believe what Tucker Carlson said about why Trump should be impeached.
Tucker Carlson is one of the most high-profile and vocal supporters of Donald Trump’s “Make America Great Again” agenda.
On his nightly Fox News program Carlson repeatedly slammed the Ukraine scandal as phony and fake.
That’s why the fake and corrupt news media delighted in an op-ed Carlson authored with Daily Caller co-founder Neil Patel where they reversed course on the Ukraine scandal.
In the op-ed Carlson and Patel slammed Trump’s July 25 phone call with the Ukrainian President as indefensible.
“Donald Trump should not have been on the phone with a foreign head of state encouraging another country to investigate his political opponent Joe Biden. Some Republicans are trying, but there’s no way to spin this as a good idea,” Carlson and Patel wrote.
That thrilled Trump’s enemies in the fake news media.
Fake news CNN’s “senior media reporter” Oliver Darcy celebrated this op-ed.
“In a sign that the right-wing media’s relentless defense of President Donald Trump may be cracking, Fox News host Tucker Carlson published an op-ed with Daily Caller co-founder and publisher Neil Patel zinging Trump for his call with Ukraine’s president,” Darcy wrote.
But before the media could get too giddy they needed to digest the rest of Carlson and Patel’s op-ed.
Carlson and Patel strongly argued that while President Trump’s phone call may have been inappropriate, it does not rise to the level of an impeachable offense.
“The key question with Mr. Trump’s Ukraine call, though, is whether the president’s actions, advisable or not, rise to the level of an impeachable offense. It’s hard to argue they do. The president did not, as was first reported, offer a quid pro quo to the Ukrainians. He did not condition any U.S. support on a Biden investigation. The Justice Department has already looked at the totality of the call and determined that Mr. Trump did not break the law,” Carlson and Patel argued.
Fake and corrupt news media members tried to argue that this was a tactical shift by Carlson to offer a way for Republicans to criticize the President while still preventing the Democrats from removing him from office through impeachment.
“There’s a pretty massive tactical signal here, which is to pivot away from defending the behavior (which has been a brutal slog so far for those who’ve tried) and instead toward arguing impeachment goes too far,” NBC’s Benjy Sarlin tweeted.
Carlson and Patel also argued that impeachment was extreme and undemocratic and that the 2020 election was the proper forum to determine Donald Trump’s political fate.
If Republicans in the Senate hold the line and reject the Democrats’ impeachment coup, you can expect to hear many of them echo that line of reasoning.
