Tucker Carlson had to confess something to his viewers.
It was not something the audience was expecting to hear.
But Tucker Carlson admitted that he made one big mistake about Joe Biden.
After the first Presidential debate Tucker Carlson admitted that he and Donald Trump had made a number of mistakes.
First, Carlson admitted he was wrong in his prediction that Joe Biden would not show up to the debate.
Second, Carlson admitted that he and President Trump were wrong to set the expectations for Joe Biden going into the debate as a man in the throes of dementia.
Carlson explained that Biden is clearly in mental decline, but that by setting the expectations for Biden’s performance so low Biden could not help but look better than the picture painted by Trump and his allies.
“As a political matter, the main thing we learned last night is that it was a mistake to spend so much time focusing on Joe Biden’s mental decline. Yes, it’s real. Yes, Joe Biden is fading, we’ve showed you dozens of examples of it for months now.
“But on stage last night, Biden did not seem senile. If you tuned in expecting him to forget his own name — and honestly we did expect that — you may have been surprised by how precise some of his answers were — not all of them, but enough of them. Trump isn’t going to win this race by calling Joe Biden senile, nor by the way is Joe Biden going to win by calling Donald Trump a racist, as he repeatedly did last night. That slander didn’t work four years ago, it will not work now,” Carlson told his viewers.
Carlson warned Trump that by attacking Biden as senile and in such an aggressive fashion, Trump made Biden look like a credible President.
“Amazingly, tragically, many people watching last night may have concluded that Joe Biden is the stable, steady alternative,” Carlson added.
President Trump still has two more debates and a month of campaigning to disqualify Biden.
