Tucker Carlson whines over 'slander' after GOP lawmaker slams his show for being an 'organ of Russian disinformation’
Fox News' Tucker Carlson recently fired back at a Republican lawmaker who criticized his show as an "organ of Russian disinformation." On Friday, March 18, Carlson responded to Rep. Michael McCaul's (R-Texas) remarks by claiming the statements were "slander."
“In recent days, McCaul has told a number of people that this show is an organ of Russian disinformation,” Carlson said on his show this week. “In other words, not only are we wrong, which is fine, we are disloyal Americans. We’re doing the bidding of a foreign power. That is not fine. That is slander.”
He continued, "Unlike Michael McCaul, we are only and narrowly interested in the interests of our own country. That would be the United States, where we were born and where we plan to die. We don’t care what the Russian government says. We only care what the United States does and what our future looks like because we have children here.”
The Fox host also used the moment as an opportunity to attack President Joe Biden and the Democratic Party.
“Russian disinformation is also a well-worn Democratic Party talking point,” he claimed. “Joe Biden, for example, calls anything he doesn’t like Russian disinformation, has for years.”
Carlson went on to slam members of the Republican Party as he suggested that there isn't a distinct difference between both political parties.
“So you have to ask yourself, why are so many Republicans suddenly talking like Joe Biden?” he finished. “And the answer is, because on the big questions, the questions that matter, they agree with each other. And you should know that.”
