Tucker Carlson says Trump is ‘not capable’
and hasn’t kept his promises

Washington Post, by Deanna Paul

Original Article

Posted By:M2, 12/7/2018 6:27:20 AM

Fox News Channel host Tucker Carlson set straight any misinformation concerning his views on President Trump: “I don’t think he’s capable,” he said during an interview on Tuesday. Urs Gehriger, an editor at “Die Weltwoche,” Switzerland’s leading German-language opinion weekly, noted that Carlson’s new book, “Ship of Fools,” is silent on Trump but comments on his critics. And so, Gehriger jump-started the conversation by asking what Carlson thought of Trump’s first two years in office. Carlson said he cannot stand Trump’s self-aggrandizement and boasting. Then, when asked whether Trump has kept his promises, the usually quick-witted

That should light a fire...

This is from the WaPo...

We all know they make crap up. I wouldn´t believe this unless I heard it directly from Carlson.

This report is the very definition of taking things out of context and or leaving relevant facts out of the narrative to support ones premise.

Typical of the once proud Washington Post. Oh the damage Kathryn Graham and Ben Bradlee did to journalism!

Mr. Trump has worked to keep his promises.

The RINOcrats in DC HAVE NOT sone their part. They have NOT supported Mr. Trump´s efforts.
They have not gotten rid of NobamaCare.
They have not built the WALL.
They have not taken action on ILLEGAL invaders.


The President has met with resistance from his own party since being elected, and now it has cost them their majority in the House.

It is time for TERM LIMITS. The entrenched demonrat socialists need to go, and elections have NOT gotten rid of them.

It is time to do something serious about SPENDING, but the RINOcrats have spent with wild abandon, and no longer campaign against spending.

Mr. Trump has done his part, but he cannot get laws passed without Congress, and cannot ENFORCE the laws when those in government violate their OATH to protect and defend the Constitution.

Too many republicrats are against Trumps promises such as building the wall, defunding Planned Parenthood and repealing Obamacare. How can you get these things done when you have so many demonrats pretending to be republicans? Take the Flake-ster and McVain as examples.

Too many voters seem to have no idea. Yet, they elect these dangerous, do nothing, obstructive clowns to our side of the aisle.

You can blame WaPo reporting. You can blame the Rinos in the House and Senate. You can say you don´t like Tucker Carlson. That said.

The wall has not been built.
Obamacare has not been repealed.
Planned Parenthood continues to be funded.
And, "She" is not locked up.

In 2020, plenty of disgruntled Trump supporters are going to decide why bother with only a shallow understanding of why these goals were not accomplished.

The President gets the credit and the President gets the blame.

This should happen no longer. If there are still those elected in the Republican party that look at the clear wishes of their voters and refuse to follow those wishes then the blame should go to them. We still have Obama care because one twisted man went against the wishes of the voters and just look at how clear it is that we have a delay of getting judges in office due to Flake. We just have to do better at pointing our the problem makers.

I think Tucker should go back to wearing his trademark bow tie. It suits his personality.
I´ve grown tired of his show.

Hannity is unwatchable. Great guests who he talks over. Repeats himself endlessly.

Ingraham is the better of the three.
Raymond Arroyo is annoying, and he has become almost a co-host of the show.

The President cannot do these things alone. He has tried but has run into roadblocks every step of the way. Chuckie Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, Jeff Flake, John McCain, etc. None want him to succeed and try their best to make sure he fails. I think he has done a great job against all odds.

Right on #11.
I will listen to Mark Levin over any of those three.
Mouthy Laura spent at least a minute talking at the same time her did and as a rest you couldn´t understand either one. Maybe more than a minute but that was the length of time it took me to switch channels.
Tucker is a sanctimonious baboon. I ask all three "Why have a guest if you do not listen to what they have to say?"
Hannity is too wrapped up in himself. He complains about how many times Obama said "I" but I am sure he beats Obama´s score.

Tucker, the ball is in your court. Are you prepared to set the record straight or will you just let it hang out there. You know the media and how it works. Frankly, It sounds like you should choose your words and statements more carefully. Big disappointment if you don’t come out and clarify what you said and meant. If you meant it fine. Then we will know and act accordingly.

If you´re open-minded how about this:

If Charles Krauthammer, Thomas Sowell, Stephen Hayes, Rex Tillerson, and now recently Ann Coulter and Tucker Carlson all come to roughly the same conclusion -- that Trump is no conservative nor even intelligent, perhaps YOU are the one getting it wrong. (Or are you too short to figure that out...?/s)

"Incapable"? Let´s see: Lower umemployment than Obama; historic lows for Blacks and Hispanics; lowering welfare rolls; high GDP; return of manufacturing; N. Korea has stopped firing missiles; a rebalancing of NATO toward the originally contracted pay schema... it goes on: Tax reduction resulting in increased Federal revenue; acknowledged economic confidence/investment, more. It would seem that, for Carlson, the fact that Trump inhabits the most rabid, incompetent, cesspool imaginable grants him no space for not getting the wall done on a finger-snap. Carlson needs a sense of proportion here. What Trump has done/is doing is quite impressive. I give him credit. Let Carlson run for the Presidency. Sure.

To Reply 16: I am a fan of many of the people you mention, however; none of them has/will run for the Presidency, nor are they capable of doing it. Trump ran - Trump won - Trump is serving - it matters not what you think of it in the context of what I just stated. Trump is quite "smart enough," and I dare say, he´s smarter than you and many other critics think he is. See my reply at #17. He is battling the largest forces imaginable in the deepest, widest, and foulest political cesspool humanity can concoct. Think about THAT. National sovereignty and prudent, legal, immigration are smart, period. The rest of it, those things he´s managed to accomplish given the unprecedented headwinds he faces, is very, very impressive. I´ll take any oafishness on this basis alone: He thwarted an HRC Presidency: Think about that, too. MAGA.

How about clicking on the blue "interview" link in the piece and reading the original interview before denying that Carlson could have said these things? He did say them.
Die Weltwoche is a Swiss weekly. It´s legitimate and it´s been around since 1933. It´s editorial stance is considered to be midway between liberalism and conservatism. It is NOT some left-wing radical rag that nobody´s ever heard of.
Carlson has familial links to Switzerland, and also attended an elite private school there as did one of his children. That´s why he chose to give this interview to this particular periodical.
Here´s what he actually said:
DW: "The Swiss are very suspicious of anybody who is boastful. That´s why I have a question about Trump…"
TC:" I hate that about him. I hate that… it´s not my culture. I didn´t grow up like that."
TC: "I´ve come to believe that Trump´s role is not as a conventional president who promises to get certain things achieved to the Congress and then does. I don´t think he´s capable. I don´t think he´s capable of sustained focus. I don´t think he understands the system. I don´t think the Congress is on his side. I don´t think his own agencies support him."
Just stating that Carlson "couldn´t" have said these things may make us feel more comfortable but it denies reality.
Whether Carlson´s view of Trump is correct or not is an entirely different matter. But he DID say those words and IN THIS CASE the WaPo is not making it up or taking things out of context.

The Democrats in congress have no reason to deal with DJT - they will out on immigration/the wall/tax reform.
Reformers - because that is what DJT is - rarely last more than one term, no matter the office held. That is a political fact.
The best we can realistically hope for over the next two years is a major assault on federal regulations and the appointment of federal justices who are rational.
DJT realizes that by now. The art of the deal is inartful in D.C.
(LBJ, for example, would have told Senator Murkowski of Alaska - if you want aid for Anchorage, you will have to support me, unconditionally. Otherwise, rebuild Anchorage without federal help. FDR would have done the same.)

Ok let´s try the wall on for size. Trump promised the wall and it isn´t built or sufficiently funded and underway. Trump can he held accountable for failing to keep this promise only if one of the following two conditions were met:

1) He did nothing to act on his promise

2) He knew at the time he made the promise that it was impossible or even unlikely to keep regardless of any effort to follow through on his part.

The closest case I could make is #2, but I think Trump was more likely overconfident and blindsided by the extent to which republicans are mired in the swamp.

I can´t think of a president in my lifetime who was as true to his word as Donald J. Trump. Then again I missed out on Coolidge.

Many years ago I stopped watching Orange County Choppers because it became a show with the father and son constantly fighting, shouting and throwing things. That´s Tucker Carlson´s time slot on Fox plenty of noise and nothing constructive.
Look at my face Tucker. My squinted eyes, furrowed brow and my head slightly tilted just like you do and tell me that again.

Oh, gad! Folks need to praise Carlson for his honesty. I agree with everything Carlson said, and I am one of Donald Trump´s greatest Champions! Trump is NOT your granny´s President. Trump is "Duterte on lithium!" Tump is a rogue, and far too honest for his own good. He does not know how the system works- And, that is one of the main reason I voted for him and sent him cash and hollered his song at people. Trump is brash, and a braggart and a pain in everyone´s a55. I absolutely love him for that. We needed a wrecking ball to get in there and knock the old system apart and get these deadbeats up out of their shiny bottom chairs and shouting at each other!

Hurrah! Trump is fantastic and perfectly designed for that. And do not tell us what he has not accomplished- for that list is truly endless. Just look at what he HAS accomplished! In less than two years of his first term, too.

Trump has a great many flaws- most of them are irritating little things that are really, in the real sense, meaningless. He knows one thing quite well- how to get things done- He could pass gas twice at every meal, chew tobacco and spit in a teacup- and stutter and I would still sing his praises- Warts and all. He is exactly what this nation needed at exactly the right time!

There are three branches to government and they exist for a reason. Trump knows enough to try to work within the system. He is not a a jabbering talk show host, he has a country to run.

Barack Obama was the only president who ever denied there were three branches and a Constitution so he did it his way.

Look how that worked out.

All politicians make promises they have no intention of keeping, Trump is no different.
There are, however, core promises (like ´read my lips, no new taxes) that the candidate uses to define himself and must be kept at all cost else failure ensues.

He can survive the tactical mistake of making his wall across half the border a theme, but not by allowing illegals across at border crossings that would still be there after the ´wall´. Securing the border WAS a key to his election success, and barring a sea change on his part, it has been squandered. He can blame the other two on Congress, even though he did not go on the floor of Congress and demand them, but he runs the border patrol, ICE, and the military. The border is HIS baby and he has dropped it in the latrine and now refuses to get his hands dirty fishing it out.

Interesting coincidence - a mob targeted his house, cracked his door, sent his wife hiding in a pantry, threatened him ("we know where you sleep at night"), and shortly thereafter, he stabs Trump. I think it´s calculated; I believe he caved to threats.

I don´t think Donald Trump deliberately misled voters when he vowed to build a big, beautiful wall. I think he liked the thought and on impulse made it public. He hadn´t yet investigated the possibility, the financing, the logistics, the potential difficulties. But now, he´s stuck with the vow and he´s preparing to blame the failure on Congress.

It wasn´t ever going to happen in totality. It can and probably will happen in scattered bits and pieces.

As an earlier poster said, all presidential candidates make promises. Some get more enthusiastically carried away than others.

Certainly the fact that at least 25% of Senators and Congresscritters who CLAIM to be Repubs are actually RINOs who are anxious to do anything possible to block Trump´s agenda.

Of #16´s group, Krauthammer was extremely anti-Trump at inauguration time but changed his mind when he saw the outstanding progress. Thomas Sowell is brilliant but lives in an idealistic world where everything should be perfect. Ann Coulter probably has the same problem that most women have who have seen Trump´s brazen side, nothing to do with his leadership ability. Stephen Hayes went over to the Dark Side. I´ll wait until Tucker explains himself on this one or I will join the mass exodus from his Fox show if it´s true.

Friday on KABC radio in Los Angeles, conservative commentator Ann Coulter reacted to President Donald Trump saying she was “off the reservation,” during his press conference this morning. Explaining that building the border wall was Trump’s mandate, Coulter said, “It was one thing, the promise he made every single day at every single speech.” She added, “So forget the fact that he’s digging his own grave. This is just — look the only national emergency is that our president is an idiot.” Coulter did praise the president regarding the courts by saying, “In defense of Trump supporters and those who fell for his

Voter support for “Medicare for All” has collapsed by 50 percent over the last month, according to polling from Politico/Morning Consult. Until this month, the Democrats’ single-payer “Medicare for All” scheme enjoyed majority support in this same poll going back months. But now that the ugly details of the program are actually being debated and publicized, net approval for the scheme has been cut in half. “From January to February, net support for single-payer health system fell over 50% to 12 points,” the pollster reports. “Although ‘Medicare for all’ enjoyed net support of 27 percentage

When President Trump said Monday at a campaign rally in El Paso that, “We’ve actually started a big, big portion of the wall today at a very important location, and it’s going to go up pretty quickly over the next nine months," I assumed it was nonsense he was spreading in hopes that his supporters might not mob him on stage for so far failing to keep the central promise of his campaign.

Green New Deal co-author Sen. Markey

One of the co-authors of the Green New Deal is slamming Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., for announcing he’s bringing the resolution to a vote. Last week, Sen. Ed Markey, D-Mass, and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., introduced a sprawling blueprint of an environmental and economic overhaul that has gotten the support of numerous Democrats, including most of the candidates who have announced 2020 presidential runs.

Women’s March co-leader Linda Sarsour suggested on Twitter Tuesday that the controversy over remarks by Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) was part of a “pattern” in which the right-wing tries to marginalize “prominent voices who dare speak up for Palestinians.” Omar attracted widespread criticism for tweets insinuating that members of Congress are paid off by Jewish money to support Israel. President Trump said Tuesday she should resign. In her tweet, Sarsour listed Omar along with five other high-profile figures who have drawn condemnation over recent months for views critical of Israel, including views seen by some as anti-Semitic. “Marc Lamont Hill, Tamika Mallory, Angela

Fact Check: Democrats Are Misleading
Americans About Their Tax Refund

Democrats looking to score points against President Donald Trump this week focused attention on data from the government that showed refund checks going out to early filers were smaller than they were a year ago. Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) falsely claimed that smaller refunds indicated that the tax cuts amounted to a “middle-class tax hike.” The smaller refund checks, however, were not indicators that taxes have gone up. In fact, two-thirds of American households got a tax cut this year. For middle-class families with children, over 80 percent got tax cuts. A smaller refund check merely indicates that early tax-filers

Polling proves that public trust in the establishment media has collapsed in every imaginable way during Trump’s presidency. There is no doubt anymore that corporate media’s ongoing assault against President Trump has backfired in a way that journalists will never recover from. An IBD/TIPP poll asked about “the public’s perception of the mainstream news media” and found that “fully half the country says its trust in the media decreased over the past two years,” while only eight percent say they have more trust in the media. Inside that overall number, the poll finds a plurality of Independents (49 percent) have lost trust

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) on Friday said that there is no way she will clap when “authoritarian” President Donald Trump says he wants to “make America great.” Appearing on New York’s “Ebro in the Morning” on Hot 97, Ocasio-Cortez discussed the “stern” look on her face during Trump’s State of the Union address, which prompted Peggy Noonan to say that the Democratic-Socialist looked “sullen, teenaged and at a loss.” (Tweet) After blasting DC politicians for caring “about civility more than they care about humanity” and the Trump administration for not knowing how many illegal immigrant children have died or been separated,

President Donald Trump has mocked Democrats’ new radical policy, the “Green New Deal,” which calls for the elimination of fossil fuels in a decade, plus guaranteed income for all Americans “unwilling” to work. The plan, introduced by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Thursday, quickly gained the endorsement and co-sponsorship of several major presidential candidates, as well as eleven Senators and 67 House representatives. Republicans are thrilled at the prospect of their rivals embracing a policy that promises to wipe out massive portions of the American economy, and the president is no exception. Trump tweeted on Saturday evening: “I think it is very important for

President Donald Trump ridiculed House Intelligence Committee chairman Adam Schiff Friday for reports that he spent time with Fusion GPS Founder Glenn Simpson in Aspen. “Now we find out that Adam Schiff was spending time together in Aspen with Glenn Simpson of GPS Fusion, who wrote the fake and discredited Dossier, even though Simpson was testifying before Schiff,” Trump wrote on Twitter, citing a report by writer John Solomon in a column for The Hill. Both men told Solomon that their encounter at the Aspen security conference was brief, despite photographs of the two together in July of 2018.

The establishment media fact checkers had it pretty tough Tuesday night. To begin with, they went into the State of the Union knowing they no longer have any credibility with the public, and they came out of it forced to lie or pound out a series of tedious nit-picks. Or, in the case of the far-left Washington Post’s Glenn Kessler, had to pretend the sexual assault of migrant women isn’t as bad as Trump made it sound.

WASHINGTON, D.C. — House Speaker Nancy Pelosi warned President Donald Trump on Thursday that a future Democratic president could declare a national emergency to achieve an agenda, such as gun control policy. Responding to the president’s announcement that he will declare a national emergency related to the U.S. southern border, Pelosi maintained that “Democratic presidents can declare emergencies as well. So the precedent that the president is setting here is something that should be met with great unease and dismay by the Republicans.” (Photos) Speaker Pelosi told reporters at her weekly press conference, “You want to talk about a national

It has been two and a half weeks since Jussie Smollett reported that he was the victim of a hate crime, and in that time, his story has fallen apart completely. (snip) the home of the two "persons of interests" in the widely circulated community alert was raided by Chicago police. In that raid, they seized a list of items including multiple containers of bleach, a "red hat," an Empire script, a Mossberg rifle, and two computers. The home is occupied by the two men, and at least one is an extra on Jussie Smollett´s show, Empire.

Friday on KABC radio in Los Angeles, conservative commentator Ann Coulter reacted to President Donald Trump saying she was “off the reservation,” during his press conference this morning. Explaining that building the border wall was Trump’s mandate, Coulter said, “It was one thing, the promise he made every single day at every single speech.” She added, “So forget the fact that he’s digging his own grave. This is just — look the only national emergency is that our president is an idiot.” Coulter did praise the president regarding the courts by saying, “In defense of Trump supporters and those who fell for his

Sen. Kamala D. Harris (D-Calif.) is running to become the first black female president. But in the early days of the campaign, she’s had to answer questions about the “legitimacy” of her “blackness.” Online, stories have circulated suggesting that Harris is not African American because her parents are immigrants and she spent some of her childhood in Canada. During an appearance on “The Breakfast Club” radio show Monday, hosts DJ Envy and Charlamagne Tha God asked Harris about that. Harris pushed back. “I’m black, and I’m proud of being black. I was born black. I will die black,”

President Donald Trump demanded Wednesday evening that the State of California return $3.5 billion in federal funds after Gov. Gavin Newsom canceled most of the state’s high-speed rail project, saying it was too expensive. “California has been forced to cancel the massive bullet train project after having spent and wasted many billions of dollars,” the president tweeted. “They owe the Federal Government three and a half billion dollars. We want that money back now. Whole project is a “green” disaster!”

The GOP Majority Leader in the Senate persuaded President Donald Trump to not veto the GOP’s flawed border security bill by promising to back a national emergency construction of border walls, according to insider leaks to the establishment media. The Washington Post reported that “Trump had been leaning against supporting the congressional spending bill but relented after several conversations with [Majority Leader Sen. Mitch] McConnell, who then announced his agreement to go along with an emergency declaration.” One reason for Trump’s last-minute opposition is that congressional leaders conducted the negotiations without significant White House involvement.

The two hottest commodities in the Democratic Party are Ilhan Omar and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Earlier this week, Omar exhibited stunning ignorance in her hostile questioning of Elliott Adams Abrams. Similarly, Ocasio-Cortez has often displayed a surprising lack of knowledge for someone who apparently is a college graduate. Don’t get me started on the “Green New Socialism.” But she outdid herself yesterday. The context was Amazon’s announcement that it would not, after all, build a second corporate headquarters in Long Island City, which I understand is close to, but not within, Ocasio-Cortez’s district. The project reportedly would have entailed

WASHINGTON— What is happening to the Democrats? Captivated by a handful of liberal superstars, they are venturing where the party has long feared to tread: Steep taxes on the rich. Abolishing an immigration enforcement agency. Proposing "economic transformation" to combat climate change. Gleefully waving goodbye to a big business — and its jobs. On Thursday, newly-elected Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez led a chorus of cheers as Amazon announced it was abandoning plans to build a sought-after headquarters in New York City. Activists berated the online giant for a $3 billion package of tax breaks she said the city could better invest

Andrew McCabe is a national disgrace. He was part of the most corrupt and most partisan leadership team in FBI history and was fired for being dishonest under oath. And yet, America owes him a big thank-you. McCabe, you see, has reminded us once again that there really is a powerful deep state, and that there has not been a full accounting of rampant FBI misconduct during the presidential campaign of 2016. There is also still too much we don’t know about the role top aides to then-President Barack Obama and higher-ups in the Justice Department

WASHINGTON – Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s relationship with boyfriend Riley Roberts is official. Roberts has been granted a government “house.gov” email address so he can access Ocasio-Cortez’s congressional calendar, the 29-year-old congresswoman confirmed Friday. Spouses of members of Congress are afforded privileges, such as a House email address, a congressional pin to bypass security and a House license plate to enter Capitol grounds and enjoy parking privileges, House aides say. While he’s not officially a spouse, Roberts can have access to House email for calendar purposes, according to the office of the Chief Administrative Officer of the House. “From time to
