Tucker Carlson just called out Donald Trump in one way that no one saw coming

Tucker Carlson is considered one of Donald Trump’s biggest supporters in the media.

That’s why Carlson’s latest monologue stunned viewers into silence.

And Tucker Carlson just called out Donald Trump in one way that no one saw coming.

On Monday night Carlson took aim at Washington, D.C.’s handling of the outbreak of the coronavirus.

Carlson called out elected officials for trying to minimize the outbreak and dismissing coronavirus as simply “the flu.”

“People you trust, people you probably voted for, have spent weeks minimizing what is clearly a very serious problem. ‘It’s just partisan politics,’ they say. ‘Calm down. In the end this was just like the flu and people die from that every year. Coronavirus will pass. And when it does, we will feel foolish for worrying about it.’

“That’s their position. No doubt these people have good intentions as they say, this many of them anyway. They may not know any better. Maybe they’re just not paying attention, or maybe they believe they’re serving some higher cause by shading reality.

“No one wants to be manipulated by a corrupt media establishment — and it is corrupt. And there’s an election coming up. Best not to say anything that might help the other side. We get it. But they’re wrong. The Chinese coronavirus is a major event . . . It’s definitely not just the flu.”

There is little doubt Carlson addressed his remarks to Donald Trump.

Earlier that day President Trump tried to reassure the American people that they did not have to buy into the media fear-mongering about coronavirus because the flu infected and killed far more Americans.

Carlson believes the outbreak of the coronavirus – of which there is still not an accurate mortality rate as experts say it kills anywhere from 1 to 3.4 percent of those infected – is far more serious than leaders are letting on.

The popular Fox News host tried to catch the President’s attention and nudge him into further action before America ends up like Italy where the government let the outbreak get out of control and now the entire country is on lockdown and hospitals don’t have enough bends to treat the sick.

    Nobody is panicking, people are just naturally concerned when something is this important and the president lies about it, adds to the problem, and doesn’t help people get what they need to fight it. Medical care providers are desperate for masks, parts of the test, ventilators, places where they can care for overflow from the hospitals that is extremely likely- and the Pres. does NOTHING, puts all the responsibility on others, and puts Pence (who FAILED in his own state to act quickly enough to prevent an HIV outbreak from escalating) in charge, laughable if it wasn’t so serious.

    I have lung and heart problems, so this virus could kill me. I am VERY unhappy with Trump’s performance!

    QED, not Trump, is right and the World Health Organization just declared the COVID-19 a pandemic. Those experts like Dr. James Robb, M.D. FCAP – -and expert on the Coronavirus (since 1970s, said this:

    “I, as many others do, hope that this pandemic will be reasonably contained, BUT I personally do not think it will be. Humans have never seen this snake-associated virus before and have no internal defense against it.”

  3. QED says:

    Tucker Carlson has shown that not all conservatives are FOOLS. He is at least smart enough to realize with potential pandemics, YOU PREPARE FOR THE WORST, AND HOPE FOR THE BEST SCENARIO.

    Carlson is also right that the president and his people need to be nudged, kicked or thrown out of office for focusing on the “me” instead of the needs of “we the people”:
    1. Trump shut down Predict Program, for disease prevention, late in 2019. Also, Trump shut down the entire global threat, security and bio-threat infrastructure set up under the Obama administration (set up to handle Ebola and other pandemics).
    2. Trump keeps making public statements of misinformation about the CoronaVirus. He has called it a “hoax” IChina and Italy has shown that not to be true). On March 10, 2020 he said everyone who needs a test can get a test kit,” but at best their might be under a million test kits for 323 million Americans.
    3. Trump even ordered our own senior health officials and experts to stop briefing the public.
    4. Trump’s State Department people overrode safety precautions and put 14 Americans infected with COVID-19 on a plane with healthy passengers and flew them back to the United States.

    Thought Tucker was different from others on FOX. Apparently not. Big Pharma supports FOX. So, duh. He’s joined Dobbs in the panic agenda.

    With this attack on Trump, this might explain why Fox is going more liberal than Conservative. Yes, this virus is an ugly one. Yes, this virus has the potential to kill and we know this. Take every option you have available to you to stay safe and healthy. Take more vitamin C and avoid shaking hands and crowds. Hand washing should be the most common practice we know, so, wash your hands more frequently to be safer. Pray for the best and hope it blows itself out, so to speak. The more common sense you can muster, the better off you will be. DO NOT fall prey to the media, though. Research what you do not know and do not depend on the media or the government for your safety! Research, research and then research some more.

    Nobody is saying that the Coronavirus isn’t serious. They are just pointing out that far more deaths occur every year from the flu. which is a mathematical fact. They also are telling everybody what precautions they can take to limit their risk. That may be a problem because it puts responsibility on the person to do something. Also, it is being disgracefully politicized and the flames are being fanned by the irresponsible media talking heads. The facts and progress are being presented daily. People need to grow up, help themselves and not initiate a panic epidemic.
    Fact: More people lose their lives in automobile accidents than plane crashes; the flu is more deadly than the Coronavirus.

    Why don’t one of the most deplorable racist democrat First Lady Michelle learn to keep her fat lip mouth shut
    She is as stupid as buck toothed Hillary

    First time I did not agree with Tucker when I watched this on Monday. People just need to use common sense and be more conscious about cleanliness; wash hands frequently, avoid big crowds and stay away from those who are sick, or cough and sneeze. But washing our hands is so important that all men and all women, young and old, should do at all times and not just during the current virus situation.

  10. I do not think that any one can predict the out come of the coronaviris and can tell where the short comings are for certain.Yet needs to be ready for it is a certain thing to do without panicking.What will happen will happen andcontainment is necessary to restrict the spread. Death is always a factor.

    If Trump was warning us daily about the virus, they would be accusing him of fear-mongering.

  12. Shirley says:

    The coronavirus is a virus. Treating it as such is very important.. Mostly stay home when sick. Wash hands frequently use sanitizer or alcohol to sanitize.. stay clear of those who are sick. TAKE LOTS OF A GOOD QUALITY VITAMIN C. Take with hot water to raise body temp to increase immune system to fight any infection . ( this is a situation to cause fear of America) . I am thankful the government is taking precautions to keep borders controlled for these things. Our Lord is taking care of his children … the Lord promised in his word no Plague would come near to His children. be sure you are one of God’s children. This is the begin of things to come..

    Tucker might want to try self quarantine

  14. Mac says:

    Use common sense ppl

  15. CHARLES says:

    Why panic there’s nothing right anyone can do about it! Just practice good hygiene by washing your hands frequently, and staying away from large groups. If panicking is the cure please share the results with everyone!
