WATCH: Jim Acosta Destroys “Human Manure Spreader” Tucker Carlson
Tucker Carlson, who Fox News admits is an entertainer and not a journalist, has always spread conspiracy theories. Since Donald Trump lost the election in November, though, his rhetoric has gotten even more extreme.
This week, the Fox host decided to target the Afghan refugees moving into the country. The refugees, Carlson claims, will all be voting Democrat. During a Saturday segment, Jim Acosta ripped into the Fox host’s lies.
The CNN host began, “Over on Fox, human manure spreader Tucker Carlson has floated yet another race baiting conspiracy theory that tens of thousands of Afghan refugees are being sent over to this country in order to change the outcome of elections.”
Acosta continued, “It is starting to look like a combination of theocracy and thugocracy. The leaders of this MAGAban movement, people Marjorie, Madison and Tucker, they’re not counting on an intelligence failure or a lack of planning on your part. They’re counting on a lack of courage to stand up for your rights in this country. Does that ring a bell?”
The host closed his remarks, “The anti-immigration, anti-democratic, anti-women’s rights forces have all sought these kinds of changes for years, even decades, in this country. Their operation to change America forever is well underway.”
