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

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.

Stupid, stupid comment by Tucker, he is smarter than that.

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.

Smartphones, tablets and video games are physically changing the brains of adolescents, early results from an ongoing $300 million study funded by the National Institute of Health have shown, according to a report by “60 Minutes.” Scientists will follow more than 11,000 nine- to 10-year-olds for a decade to see how childhood experiences impact the brain and affect emotional development and mental health. The first bits of data suggest that the onslaught of tech screens has been transformative for young people -- and maybe not for the better.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calif.) responded to the November employment report that came out today—which showed that a record 156,795,000 were employed in America—by saying that the report revealed “a callous GOP special interest agenda” that has hurt the “economic security of hard-working families.” The unemployment numbers released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics indicated that the unemployment rate was 3.7 percent for the third straight month. That is the lowest unemployment rate the United States has seen since 1969, according to BLS. “November’s jobs report shows an economy straining beneath the weight of a callous GOP special interest agenda that

The country’s National Assembly approved a proposal to change the constitution to make the so-called reforms legal in a vote of 183 to 77. This paves the way for land to be taken from farmers without giving any kind of compensation. And now lawmakers have agreed to set up a committee that will write and introduce a new bill for land expropriations.

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

Bush after his death “phony.” Partial transcript as follows: SHANNON BREAM: Last night, we talked about a couple of headlines, including one from the AP that had to be, well, reworked, shall we say.

Vice, Vox, BuzzFeed, HuffPost, and other left-wing digital outlets are struggling in an increasingly competitive marketplace. While smaller left-wing outlets, like Mic, Lena Dunham’s Lenny Letter, Refinery29, Rookie, and the anti-Trump Weekly Standard are either closed, closing, or going through massive overhauls to stop the bleeding of red ink, the big players on the left – the aforementioned Vice, Vox, and Buzzfeed – no longer look like sure things. Even HuffPost is looking at adding a paywall. Vanity Fair writes that these “companies, which once heralded the dawn of a new media age—replete with massive valuations, large fund-raising hauls, and

Actress, former View host, and long-time hater of President Donald Trump Rosie O’Donnell declared Wednesday that Trump should “rot in jail.” This was in response to a report that President Trump is supposedly ignoring the federal deficit. “When President Trump has literally been shown data and charts by senior officials showing what year(s) the debt is expected to explode, Trump has referenced the first year & said ‘yeah, but I won’t be here.’ That’s a direct quote,” The Daily Beast’s Asawin Suebsaeng said.During an October appearance on MSNBC, O’Donnell called Trump “evil” and admitted that she got “physically sick”

A survey released on Nov. 27 found that one in five millennials views the American flag as “a sign of intolerance and hatred,” and two in five think it is okay to burn Old Glory. The “State of American Patriotism Report,” which was designed to assess the patriotism and historical knowledge of young Americans, also revealed that six in 10 millennials (ages 22-37) believe the United States is racist and sexist.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calif.) responded to the November employment report that came out today—which showed that a record 156,795,000 were employed in America—by saying that the report revealed “a callous GOP special interest agenda” that has hurt the “economic security of hard-working families.” The unemployment numbers released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics indicated that the unemployment rate was 3.7 percent for the third straight month. That is the lowest unemployment rate the United States has seen since 1969, according to BLS. “November’s jobs report shows an economy straining beneath the weight of a callous GOP special interest agenda that

Sen. Elizabeth Warren has the core of her 2020 team in place if she runs for president. She has the seed money — there’s $12.5 million ready to go, left from her recent Senate run — and a massive email list she’s amassed over years, boosted by a $3.3 million investment in digital infrastructure and advertising in the last election alone. Her aides have been quietly shopping for presidential campaign headquarters space in the Boston area in recent weeks, according to a source with knowledge of the move. All that’s left is for her to give the green light.

The Supreme Court declined to review three cases relating to Republican efforts to defund Planned Parenthood at the state level Monday, over a vigorous dissent from Justice Clarence Thomas. The dissent was significant because it indicates that Justice Brett Kavanaugh sided with the high court’s liberal wing to deny review of a lower court decision that favored the nation’s largest abortion provider. “So what explains the Court’s refusal to do its job here?,” Thomas wrote. “I suspect it has something to do with the fact that some respondents in these cases are named ‘Planned Parenthood.
