Fox News host Tucker Carlson is facing backlash regarding his recent commentary about the Black women who may possibly be tapped to become Joe Biden’s running mate. On Monday (Aug. 3), Carlson singled out the Black female candidates, which include Kamala Harris, Stacey Abrams and Karen Bass.
“We’ve taken a closer look at three potential candidates. All of them are said to be on Joe Biden’s shortlist for the job,” the Fox host said. “They are Stacey Abrams, Karen Bass and Kamala Harris. Now, in a normal year, no mainstream candidate would consider any of these people. All of them would be disqualified without debate.”
“Karen Bass is a lunatic Fidel Castro acolyte, who praised Scientology and once belonged to an armed revolutionary group. She’s out,” he continued.
Carlson then began to insult Abrams. “Stacey Abrams is so delusional she thinks she’s the Governor of Georgia, and by the way, she’s essentially unemployed,” he continued. “In one of her last regular jobs, she wrote bad porn novels — for real.”
After speaking about Abrams and Bass, he said that no one who knew Harris liked her. “Kamala Harris, meanwhile, is so transparently transactional that even Democratic primary voters who have a strong stomach found her repulsive,” Carlson exclaimed. “Pretty much no one who knows Kamala Harris likes her.”
Carlson feels that Biden “has decided to hire exclusively on the basis of qualities that are both immutable and completely irrelevant—race and gender” and thinks that the Democratic Party just wants to win.
“And that’s it. But wait a second, you ask, ‘Isn’t that insulting? Isn’t it wrong? Isn’t it probably illegal?’ Yes, it is all three of those things,” he continued. “But no one’s pushing back against it so Biden is doing it.”
