Tucker Carlson, former host for Fox News and the co-founder of the Daily Caller, conducted an interview with conservative actress Roseanne Barr where he revealed what led him to become a complete and total supporter of former President Donald Trump. It’s worth noting that Carlson had the most popular program on the Fox News Network and started his own streaming program on X after they fired him back in April. It’s absolutely their loss.
According to the Daily Caller, Carlson revealed he was always on board with Trump’s political views, however he did not fully throw his support behind any politician until one specific moment, which occurred in August of 2022. You probably know what he’s referring to. It was the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s raid on Trump’s Florida Mar-a-Lago estate, which is when they got their hands on 300 classified documents he kept secure on the property.
“I certainly support Trump, I can tell you, well I’ve always agreed with Trump’s policies, always, and I’ve lost friends over it,” Carlson stated. “And I’ve never really actively supported anybody because it’s not my job to actively support people, I like to watch, you know … but I became an active Trump supporter when they raided Mar-a-Lago last summer, the summer of 2022. That can’t stand.”
During the interview, Carlson said that he would still be backing Trump even if he didn’t agree with him on most of his political stances, simply because he is absolutely opposed to the idea of the Justice Department being weaponized by the deep state to take out the Republican frontrunner, who poses a political threat to President Joe Biden’s reelection efforts.
“So it’s bigger than Trump, it’s bigger than Biden. It’s a question of do you want to live in a free country with a functioning justice system. So I’m voting for Trump, and if they convict him, I will send him the max donations and I will lead protests. That’s how I feel,” Carlson explained.
Check out more details from the DC report:
He criticized the justice system for prosecuting Trump over his possession of classified documents, while President Joe Biden is not facing charges despite him also storing classified material in his private home and office.
The FBI retrieved around 20 boxes of binders, a handwritten note and the executive grant of clemency for Roger Stone, information about the President of France, and binders of photographs. They obtained a warrant after Trump did not abide by the National Archives and Records Administration’s (NARA) request to hand over the 15 boxes of documents.
President Trump went on to say that the documents that were taken by the FBI had all been “declassified” and kept in “safe storage” in a statement he released in August 2022.
A legal team representing President Biden also discovered classified documents, all related to Ukraine, Iran, and the United Kingdom, in his private office in November 2022. More were found inside his garage in his Delaware home. And yet, it’s not likely he will face any charges. So a Democrat and Republican do the same exact thing, yet the Republican is facing charges while the Democrat is not. It does not take a genius to see the bias here.
