Tucker Carlson Shamelessly Creates Baseless Conspiracy Theory About Democratic Leaders Controlling Joe Biden
Former Vice President Joe Biden had a blowout victory in the South Carolina Democratic primary, and went on to have a very good Super Tuesday. His formerly flailing campaign has gained new life, and other candidates who dropped out prior to and after the Super Tuesday contests have given him ringing endorsements.
Of course, this means that right-wing media must attack Joe Biden, and that includes letting the conspiracy theories fly.
Fox News’ Tucker Carlson went the route of those who possess no ability to feel shame, and decided to go after Biden’s mental faculties.
Carlson claimed that Biden, who is notoriously gaffe-prone, need not worry because his “fading intellect is not a handicap.” He went on to say that this part of the former Vice President’s weaknesses was “an opportunity” for him to be controlled by establishment Democrats.
Carlson’s missive went:
“To the cynical and darkly clever people who run the Democratic Party. Biden’s fading intellect is not a handicap. It’s an opportunity. Joe Biden is weak, and he’s getting weaker. Ask anyone who knows him, or who’s watched him carefully over the past 50 years. Biden is noticeably more confused now than he was even last spring, when he entered the race.”
Now, Joe Biden has been a gaffe machine his entire life. His multiple misspeaks are nothing new.
But Carlson seems to be implying that Biden is either senile or there is something else wrong with him mentally. There is no medical evidence whatsoever to make such charges. It is nothing more than a way to stir up conspiracies and try to pretend that Biden is unfit for office.
Watch Tucker Carlson’s diatribe below:
This is pretty ironic, considering that Tucker Carlson is a staunch Donald Trump supporter, and Trump is the most unfit president in the history of the republic.
“All of these people are happy for the same reason: Joe Biden is fading and uncertain. Weak leaders are vessels for the stronger forces around him. And no force in American politics is stronger — more aggressive or better organized — than the narrow little interest groups that comprise the Democratic coalition.”
That’s rich, considering that Trump is the empty vessel with which the GOP media complex and the elected Republican establishment has filled their wretched ideas and policies.
This is the epitome of the very definition of projection. Everything Tucker Carlson is accusing the Democrats of doing with Joe Biden, the GOP is already doing with Donald Trump in plain view.
