Fox News host Tucker Carlson refused to back down from the media and Democrat outrage over his Monday night monologue criticizing Senator Tammy Duckworth (D-Ill.) over her calling George Washington a “dead traitor” whose statues should be removed.
On Tuesday night’s edition of “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” Carlson explained that Duckworth was a “coward” for not defending her remarks and a “fraud” for using her combat service as a a shield from legitimate criticism.
“Only someone who hates the country would suggest ripping down monuments to its founder,” Carlson said. “Apparently, Tammy Duckworth saw what we said, she didn’t disagree with it exactly. Instead, she questioned our right to criticize her at all since she was once injured while serving in the Illinois National Guard. That’s what passes for an argument in modern identity politics. They don’t address the points you make, they question your right to make them at all.”
