The Left targeted Tucker Carlson for destruction from the moment his show became a smash hit.
And they thought they finally nailed him after one big controversy.
But then Tucker Carlson went on air and stunned his viewers into silence when he offered this apology.
Tucker Carlson pointedly has refused to apologize for comments the Left claimed were “racist” or anti-woman.
Carlson won’t give in to the PC mob.
But he did apologize for one set of comments he made on his show mocking former Vice President Joe Biden for giving women “Eskimo kisses” or gripping their shoulders when he met them.
Carlson claimed the Left wanted to impose a “PC hell” and he was wrong for joining in on shaming Biden for his conduct.
The Daily Caller reports:
“We want to begin tonight’s show with an apology,” Carlson began…
…There is something sad—pathetic, really—about watching a 76-year-old man apologizing for not understanding ‘selfie culture.’ You hope your own golden years would be more dignified than that. But the politicians have no choice, they drove him to it. And so did we. That is the point of the apology,” Carlson said.
“When the story first broke—passing out Eskimo kisses and sniffing other people’s hair—it was irresistible and you could not not laugh at it. And we did. We mocked Joe Biden as an impulsive hugger; a cuddler run amok. And it was too amusing. What we should have said every bit as loudly, and we apologize for not saying, is that hugging is not sexual assault.”
“Eskimo kisses are not rape,” Carlson continued. “That used to be obvious, but it’s not obvious anymore. And so we are sorry for blurring the distinction between human affection and, of course, immoral behavior. The last thing this country needs is more people that think they are assaulted because a senior citizen hugs them wrong. So we apologize for adding to that nonsense; that anti-human hysteria.”
The irony of this scandal is Biden received more defense on Fox News than he did on MSNBC or CNN.
Liberals can’t wait to throw him overboard because he is competing against the “shiny new toys” in the Democrat presidential primary field.
