Tucker Carlson is the top rated show on cable news.
His popularity is due in large part to the fact that Carlson is willing to tell the truth and speak his mind without holding back.
And Tucker Carlson just laid the smack down on Geraldo Rivera during this jaw-dropping interview on Fox News.
Tucker Carlson is launching a new streaming series focused solely on the border crisis called Tucker Carlson Today.
He recently appeared as a guest on The Five to promote his new book, where liberal co-host, Geraldo Rivera, offered a snarky comment about how he was glad the segment didn’t open with any focus on the fact that the Biden administration is turning illegal aliens who tested positive with COVID loose in Texas without telling local law enforcement.
Carlson responded to Rivera, who supports amnesty for illegal aliens, by bringing up the fact that Nancy Pelosi just ordered Capitol Police to arrest Republican staffers who refused to wear a mask at the same time Joe Biden was releasing illegal aliens who tested positive for COVID into America by the tens of thousands.
“You know, Geraldo, we live in a country where we are being forced to take a vaccine that some people – newsflash – don’t wanna take, that Americans can be arrested for not wearing a mask because COVID is so serious! But foreign nationals break our laws carrying COVID and somehow they’re exempt from the requirements that we live under? That’s not xenophobia. That’s equal application of the law, and it’s not happening now. And it’s an appalling double standard that every American – including you – should be mad about.”
Rivera responded by pointing out that America allegedly has a history of scapegoating immigrants for carrying diseases, causing Tucker to point out how Joe Biden made it official policy that the federal government would now mandate that employees take the coronavirus vaccine or submit to weekly testing while illegal aliens got a free ticket into America with no COVID restrictions.
“What?! It’s a policy. They are not forcing – look, if you work in the federal government you have to get the vaccine, but if you break our laws as an illegal alien, you don’t? Why don’t you explain why that’s a good idea to me?” Carlson shot back.
Rivera, who realized he couldn’t debate with Tucker on the issue, realized he had no argument and turned the segment over to co-host Jesse Watters.
