I like to check in every so often with Tucker Carlson to see if he’s still an annoying, stupid little twerp. So far, he has yet to disappoint. Like his argument that if President Obama is going to advocate for gun control, he should have to give up his Secret Service protection.
Fox News host Tucker Carlson argued over the weekend that President Barack Obama should have to give up his armed Secret Service security detail if he was going to be pushing for gun control.
On Saturday’s edition of Fox & Friends, Carlson suggested that the president had used the recent massacre at the Emanuel AME Church in Charleston to advance a “political” agenda against guns.
“The president has said a number of times guns are the problem, guns cause violence,” Carlson complained. “There’s nobody in the world surrounded by more armed people than President Obama himself. I notice he’s not suggesting the people around him disarm. He wants to remain protected, but the rest of us have to go without means to self-protection.”…
“The president’s position is that guns cause violence, guns are inherently bad and dangerous,” Carlson opined. “The rest of us need to disarm and not protect ourselves. And he’s exempt from that?”
Yep, still a dishonest asshole. No, that is not the president’s position, it’s a ridiculous straw man position that Carlson pulled from his rectum. Seriously, this is just about the dumbest argument I’ve ever heard, which is why I’m not remotely surprised that he’s the one making it.
