WATCH: Tucker Carlson Refers to Barack Obama as “America’s Chief Racial Arsonist”

Barack Obama stayed largely silent on the matters of Washington over the last 3 years. With an election looming and America in the midst of pandemic, he’s been seen much more often over the last couple of months.

And the 44th President took the time to pen a letter about the recent police killing of Minneapolis resident George Floyd. Many of the Fox News personalities, but particularly Tucker Carlson, took issue with the letter. During his Friday show, the Fox host referred to Obama as “America’s Chief Racial Arsonist.”

Carlson began the segment by discussing the demonstrations which are currently going on around the country. He feels Obama is partially to blame. “He accused the countries country’s hospital and courts of being racist and discriminatory, he remarked. “He never mentioned the riots at all. It’s like they didn’t happen. Apparently he doesn’t care about the black neighborhoods being torched, it’s not like he’s ever lived in one.”

Fox and Friends anchor Brian Kilmeade joined in on the segment and agreed with the host:

“Them when I watch President Obama write this letter, and I think — you know, he is a deep thinker, a very bright guy, a great writer —  and he writes this letter about what people are saying to him about these riots and what role race plays, and he covers the whole thing, and then he says it’s up to law enforcement to crack down and it’s up to the Justice Department to find justice. Okay. What’s missing from that story? Mr. President, you’re not in the eye of the storm, you’re there to analyze.”
