Tucker Carlson calls it like he sees it.
That kind of straight talk regularly draws the ire of the radical Left.
But now Democrats are furious over what Tucker Carlson just said about Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death upended the 2020 Presidential election.
It also gave President Trump a historic opportunity to reshape the U.S. Supreme Court for a generation by appointing three Justices in his first term.
So it’s no surprise that Democrats are pulling out all the stops to keep this from happening.
Almost immediately, Democrats claimed it was Ginsburg’s “dying wish” allegedly, and quite poetically, “as her strength waned” to not be replaced until a new President is seated.
“My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new President is installed,” Ginsburg allegedly dictated in a statement to her granddaughter.
Tucker Carlson cast doubt on the claim, with his usual rational arguments.
“Keep in mind, we don’t know actually what Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s final words were,” Carlson said. “Did she really leave this world fretting about a presidential election?”
“We don’t believe that for a second,” he continued. “If it were true, it would be pathetic because life is bigger than politics, even this year.”
Carlson noted it would indeed be sad if it were true.
“We wouldn’t wish final words like that on anyone,” Carlson added, “so we choose to believe that Ruth Bader Ginsburg didn’t actually say that, but [rather] in real life, she was thinking in the end about her family and where she might be going next. Human concerns, not partisan ones.”
Carlson added that if Scalia had allegedly said something similar, no one would’ve cared.
“If Justice [Antonin] Scalia had said something like that, no one would have cared. We would have been embarrassed for him,” Carlson said. “On some level, Democrats know all this. All this talk about Ginsburg’s dying wish is ridiculous and insulting to all of us in our country and they will stop soon.”
Democrats were apoplectic over Carlson’s remark.
The Washington Post even published a headline reading, “Tucker Carlson won’t let Rush Bader Ginsburg rest in peace,” implying the only way Ginsburg can rest in peace is by having her replacement chosen by the next President.
As a matter of fact, the Republican-controlled Senate is acting swiftly – despite Democrats’ obstructionism – to confirm Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill Ginsburg’s seat before the election.
