Tucker Carlson took the glove off in episode 4 of his Twitter show. In a bit that Tucker Carlson dubbed “Wannabe Dictator” – referring to Joe Biden after he had President Trump arrested last week.
Trump said that Carlson is a good guy and that he was spot on in his description of Joe Biden. President Trump said that the reason that the liberals persecute him is that he put America First and that is diametrically opposed to the liberal ideology.
“Tucker Carlson, a very good guy, is exactly right. The number one reason the totally corrupt Biden administration and the sick Washington establishment are after me is because I stand up to their failed foreign policy agenda. The one thing Washington cannot forgive is that I put America first. Always put America first. I could never help it. I have to do that in order to Make America Great Again.”
“That’s why despite the massive criminality and corruption of the Clintons, the Bidens, the Obamas, and all the rest, none of them ever get indicted or ever get investigated. They’re totally protected by a fake and disgusting system.”
“But I did everything right, and the system tries to throw me right into a jail. They can’t beat me at the ballot box. So they’re out there trying to take me out by other means. Anything they can think of. These people don’t love our country.”
Trump has promised to end the war in Ukraine, restore energy independence, and do a major cleaning of the swamp. He kept his promises last time, even though he kept getting blocked by Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell. And this time he has an ax to grind and I suspect there will be many subpoenas and arrests during his second term.
Trump further challenged the integrity of his political adversaries. That would include the Clintons, the Bidens, and the Obamas.

Tucker Carlson Takes Aim At “Wannabe Dictator” Joe Biden
After delivering an epic condemnation of the Deep State (‘permanent Washington’) in his previous episode – which has now been view over 90 million times – Tucker Carlson turns his acerbic eye first to his former employer – Fox News – and then to the “wannabe dictator” in The White House.
On Tuesday this week, shortly after former President Trump’s arrest, Fox News ran two video feeds (of Biden and Trump) simultaneously with the following chyron: “wannabe dictator speaks at The White House after having his political rival arrested.”
The words were on the screen less than 30 seconds but the effect was immediate inside Fox as Carlson notes “the women who run the network panicked… first they scolded the producer… less than 24 hours after that, he resigned (he’d been at Fox for more than a decade, considered one of the most capable people in the building.”
Then, the company issued a public apology: “the chyron was taken down immediately,” adding ominously that the situation was “addressed.”
But here’s the former Fox News host’s first point:
“Democrats were very very angry… but why were they angry? If the banner was false, why the hysteria? Lies don’t seem to bother anyone anymore… if some cable news producer had called Biden a genius, or secretly Sudanese, would anyone be yallin gabout it?”
So, calling Joe Biden a ‘wannabe dictator’ apparently crossed the line:
“So, if you’re being honest with yourself, you have to wonder if Joe Biden is a wannabe dictator?”
