Tucker: Useful lessons from the midterm elections


TOMORROW. TUCKER CARLSON IS UP NEXT. ♪ ♪>>Tucker: GOOD EVENING, WELCOME TO “TUCKER CARLSON TONIGHT.” THERE IS AN AWFUL LOT GOING ON RIGHT NOW. THE PRESIDENT FIRED ONE OF HIS EARLIEST SUPPORTERS IN WASHINGTON, FORMER SENATOR NOW ATTORNEY GENERAL COUNT, NOW FORMER ATTORNEY GENERAL JEFF SESSIONS THERE WILL FOCUS ON THAT IN JUST A MINUTE. BUT FIRST, THE BIG STORY, THE SMOKE IS CLEARING TONIGHT FROM THE MOST EXPENSIVE MIDTERM ELECTIONS IN AMERICAN HISTORY. THE OUTLINES ARE JUST BECOMING VISIBLE. THE RESULT, IT TURNS OUT, ARE CONFUSING. IT WASN’T EXACTLY A DRAW, BUT BOTH SIDES CAN CLAIM VICTORY, AND OF COURSE, THEY ARE PAIRED IN THE HOUSE, REPUBLICANS DID SLIGHTLY WORSE THAN AVERAGE AND A MIDTERM ELECTION. IN THE SENATE, THEY DID A LITTLE BETTER. SOME RACES PLAYED OUT AS REFERENDUMS ON THE PRESIDENT’S FIRST TWO YEARS IN OFFICE, OTHER RACES HAD NOTHING AT ALL TO DO WITH TRUMP. IN SOME RACES, HARD EDGED IDEOLOGUES WON, AND OTHERS, MODERATES TAPE IT WAS BASICALLY A PATCHWORK, NO OBVIOUS TAKEAWAYS FROM WHAT HAPPENED LAST NIGHT. BUT THERE ARE SOME USEFUL LESSONS, AND THAT IS WHAT WE WOULD LIKE TO SPEND SOME TIME TALKING ABOUT TONIGHT. WHAT EXACTLY HAVE WE LEARNED FROM 470 INDIVIDUAL CONGRESSIONAL ELECTIONS? SOME BIG GOVERNORS RACES, AND THE FULL YEAR OF POLITICAL DEBATE? THE BIGGEST NEWS IS THAT DEMOCRATS JUST WON BACK THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES AFTER EIGHT YEARS. THEY ARE THRILLED WITH THAT, OBVIOUSLY. AND YET THEY DON’T APPEAR TO HAVE ANY IDEA HOW THEY DID IT. AS OF TONIGHT, THERE REALLY IS NO DEMOCRATIC PROGRAM OR PLATFORM OR MESSAGE, THERE IS NO DEMOCRATIC PLAN FOR MAKING THE ECONOMY STRONGER OR THE COUNTRY SAFER. THERE IS ONLY DONALD TRUMP, WHO THEY DESPISE. THE ENTIRE DEMOCRATIC MESSAGE IS TRUMP. THE PRESIDENT’S OFTEN ACCUSED OF NARCISSISM AND MAKE EVERYTHING ABOUT HIMSELF, BUT ON THAT POINT, DEMOCRATS AGREE WITH THEM, THEY THINK EVERYTHING IS ABOUT TO TRUMP COME TOO PAIRED WATCH THIS CLIP LAST NIGHT. IT BECAME CLEAR THAT DEMOCRATS WERE ABOUT TO RECLAIM THE HOUSE, IT WAS A BIG MOMENT, THE APEX OF THE NIGHT, AND AT THE APEX, A SENIOR DEMOCRAT CALLED LISETTE ON MSNBC TO ANNOUNCE HIS PARTIES TOP PRIORITIES. HERE IT IS.>>I HAVE SPOKEN TO A SENIOR DEMOCRATIC SOURCE ON THE WAYS AND MEANS COMMITTEE, BREAKING NEWS, THEY DO INTEND TO REQUEST PRESIDENT TRUMP’S TAX RETURNS. GETTING YOUR HANDS ON THOSE TRUMP TAX RETURNS, EVERY WINDOW LOOKS, WOULD BE A BIG DEAL FOR THE COMMITTEE.>>Tucker: GETTING TRUMP’S TAX RETURNS, THAT IS THE PRIORITY FOR DEMOCRATS, NOT INFRASTRUCTURE, NOT WAGES, NOT DRUG ODs IN THIS COUNTRY, THE SHRINKING MIDDLE CLASS, NOT EVEN HEALTH CARE. TRUMP’S TAX RETURNS. THAT IS WHAT DEMOCRATS REALLY WANT. OKAY, MAYBE THEY WILL GET THEM. MAYBE THEY WILL GET THOSE RETURNS. WHAT THEN? WHAT EXACTLY WILL BE LEARNED FROM TRUMP’S TAX RETURNS? THAT A CASINO OWNER ONCE EMPLOYED A CLEVER ACCOUNTANT? THAT HE MADE LESS THAN HE CLAIMED HE DID? WILL ANYBODY BE SHOCKED BY ANY OF THAT? WILL ANYONE CARE ABOUT ANY OF THAT? OR AS WITH THE STORMY DANIELS SAGA THAT WENT ON FOREVER, WILL VOTERS FIND THEMSELVES TITILLATED FOR A MOMENT AND THEN LOSE INTEREST? WHAT DO TRUMP’S TAX RETURNS HAVE TO DO WITH THEM, ANYWAY? THEIR PREMIUMS HAVEN’T GONE DOWN, IT IS ALL JUST NOISE APPEARED ALMOST ALL OF THIS IS JUST NOISE. FOR THE REST OF US, A PRETTY SIMPLE LESSON, YOU THINK DEMOCRATS WOULD HAVE FIGURED IT OUT, BUT THEY HAVE NOT FIGURED IT OUT. CONGRESSMAN JERRY NADLER WILL LIKELY BE THE CHAIRMAN OF THE HOUSE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE, JUST TODAY, HE WAS ON A TRAIN BACK TO WASHINGTON FROM NEW YORK AND HE WAS OVERHEARD BY SOMEBODY LAYING OUT HIS LEGISLATIVE PRIORITIES. FIRST ON THE LIST? NOT MAKING THIS UP, IMPEACHING BRETT KAVANAUGH AND REMOVING HIM FROM THE SUPREME COURT. APPARENTLY THAT IS WHAT DEMOCRATS REALLY BELIEVE VOTERS WANT, MORE THAN ANYTHING ELSE, GET THAT KAVANAUGH GUY OFF THE COURT. POISED TO TAKE OVER THE HOUSE INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE, THE REIGNING MEMBER FOR THE LAST COUPLE OF YEARS. HE SAID COME JANUARY WHEN HE TAKES OVER, HIS MAIN PRIORITY WILL BE INTENSIFYING AT THE RUSSIA PROBE, BECAUSE IT IS NOT INTENSE ENOUGH OR LONG-STANDING ENOUGH. HE THINKS THAT HE CAN PROVE THAT VLADIMIR PUTIN SOMEHOW STOLE THE 2016 ELECTION WITH A FEW DOZEN FACEBOOK ADS THAT HARDLY ANYBODY SAW. CAN HE REALLY PROVE THAT? WHO KNOWS? MAYBE. WHAT WE CAN KNOW FOR CERTAIN IS NOBODY OUTSIDE WASHINGTON WELL CARE AT ALL IF HE DOES PROVE IT. THE ENTIRE RUSSIA CONVERSATION IS AN RELEVANT AND A DOME. AND THAT HAS BEEN PROVEN ALREADY. IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH ANYTHING, AND EVERYBODY KNOWS IT. DEMOCRATS ARE THE ONLY ONE WHO DON’T KNOW IT YET. AS OF RIGHT NOW, THE ENTIRE DEMOCRATIC PLATFORM CAN BE SUMMED UP IN ONE SENTENCE — DONALD TRUMP IS A BAD PERSON. THAT IS WHAT THEY PLAN TO RUN ON IN THE NEXT PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION, WHICH INCIDENTALLY, STARTS TODAY, RIGHT NOW. GOOD LUCK WITH THAT. IT IS A VIRTUAL GUARANTEE THAT TRUMP WILL SERVE A FULL EIGHT YEARS TO BE MAKE IT ABOUT HIM PAIRED BY THE WAY, SO AS ALL OF THE RACE TALK, THAT IS NOT HELPING YOU. SEVERAL ALONG THE WAY, EMMA KATZ BECAME CONVINCED THEY COULD WIN ELECTIONS BY ANNOUNCING VOTERS AS RACIST OR THE ANDREW GILLUM CAMPAIGN AND TRIED IT IN FOR TO COMER MEMBER HE WAS ASKED ABOUT THE FBI PROBE, “YOU ARE A RACIST FOR ASKING.” STACEY ABRAMS IN GEORGIA, DID IT WORK? NO. IT REALLY WORKS. WHY WOULD IT WORK? HERE IS A BIT OF HARD EARNED KNOWLEDGE FROM ALMOST 30 YEARS OF COVERING CAMPAIGNS, WHEN YOU CALL VOTERS IMMORAL, THEY DON’T LIKE IT. AND YET THE LEFT CONTINUES TO THROW THE RACIST SLUR, PROBABLY BECAUSE THEY ENJOY DOING IT I CN BECAUSE THEY ENJOY DOING IT I CF BECAUSE THEY ENJOY DOING IT I CE BECAUSE THEY ENJOY DOING IT I CL BECAUSE THEY ENJOY DOING IT I CG BECAUSE THEY ENJOY DOING IT I CO BECAUSE THEY ENJOY DOING IT I CD BECAUSE THEY ENJOY DOING IT I CA BECAUSE THEY ENJOY DOING IT I CO BECAUSE THEY ENJOY DOING IT I CT THEMSELVES. HERE IS ABC’S COVERAGE OF THE GILLUM RACE LAST NIGHT PAIRED WATCH.>>I THINK PROGRESSIVES IN PLACE LIKE FLORIDA AND GEORGIA, THEY WILL BE INCREDIBLY DISAPPOINTED, AND THEY WILL BE GIVING THEIR WHITE NEIGHBORS THE HAIRY EYEBALL TOMORROW.>>Tucker: IN OTHER WORDS, ABC IS TELLING US, ANDREW GILLUM LOST BECAUSE OF HIS SKIN COLOR, AND HE LOST BECAUSE OF THE BEHAVIOR OF PEOPLE OF A CERTAIN SKIN COLOR. ABC KNOWS THAT. YOU HEAR THINGS LIKE THIS ALL THE TIME. EVERY DAY. AND YET CURIOUSLY, NOBODY EVER BOTHERS TO PROVE ANY OF IT. OR EVEN TRY. WHY? BECAUSE IT IS UNPROVABLE. AND THAT IS THE APPEAL. RACISM IS NOW ANYTHING YOU DON’T LIKE, AND RACIST AS ANYONE WHO IS IN YOUR WAY. HURLING ALLEGATIONS OF BIGOTRY ARE FROM THE PERSPECTIVE OF THE LEFT, THE QUICKEST WAY TO GET WHAT YOU WANT. THAT IS WHY THEY DO IT. IT HAPPENED AGAIN TODAY. SPEAK ON THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL, YOU CALL YOURSELF A NATIONALIST. SOME PEOPLE SAW THAT AS EMBOLDENING WHITE NATIONALIST.>>President Trump: THAT IS SUCH A RACIST QUESTION PARENTS BECAUSE SOME PEOPLE SAY THAT THE REPUBLICAN PARTY IS SUPPORTING WHITE NATIONALIST BECAUSE OF YOUR RHETORIC. WHAT DO YOU MAKE OF THAT?>>President Trump: WHY DO I HAVE MY HIGHEST WHOLE NUMBERS EVER WITH AFRICAN-AMERICANS? THEY LOVE OUR COUNTRY. I DO. YOU HAVE NATIONALIST, YOU ARE A GLOBAL LIST. I ALSO LOVE THE WORLD. AND I DON’T MIND HELPING THE RULE WORLD, BUT WE HAVE TO STRAIGHTEN OUT OUR COUNTRY FIRST STRAIGHTEN OUT OUR COUNTRY FIRS.>>Tucker: IT HAPPENED AT THE TE PRESIDENTS BRIEFING, SO SO YU MIGHT NOT HAVE SEEN IT BECAUSE YOU ARE LIVING A LIFE NOT GLUED TO THE INTERNET, BUT IF THAT HAPPENED A FEW YEARS AGO, IT WOULD HAVE BEEN EVERYWHERE. IT WOULD HAVE BEEN INTERNATIONAL NEWS. AN ACCREDITED WHITE HOUSE REPORTER CALLING THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES A WHITE SUPREMACIST? HOLY SMOKES! BUT NOW IT IS JUST ANY OTHER DAY ON CABLE NEWS. HE NOBODY REALLY BELIEVES THAT THE REPORTER MEANS IT. IT IS POSTURING. AND THEREFORE, IT IS BORING. THE CLAIM “RACIST!” IS LOSING ITS POWER FROM OVERUSE. DIMINISHING RETURNS HAVE BEEN REACHED PURITY OF A PROBLEM WITH NATIONALIST, AND MIGHT BE BETTER TO ARGUE AGAINST NATIONALISM. THAT WAY WE MIGHT ALL LEARN SOMETHING. IN THE MEANTIME, REPUBLICANS SHOULD UNDERSTAND THAT DEMOCRATS CALL THEM BIGOTS NOT BECAUSE THEY BELIEVE THEY ARE BIGOTS, OR EVEN BECAUSE THEY CARE IF THEY ARE BIGOTS. AL SHARPTON AND LOUIS FARRAKHAN ARE STILL ALLOWED IN THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY, AFTER ALL, DEMOCRATS OBVIOUS THEY AREN’T TOO CONCERNED ABOUT BIGOTRY, OR THEY WOULD KICK THOSE GUYS OUT FIRST STEP. DEMOCRATS SAY IT, THEY MAKE THE CHARGE, BECAUSE THEY HOPE IT WILL BRING THEM POWER, AND POWER IS WHAT THEY WANT. IT IS ALL THEY WANT. REPUBLICANS LOST AN ENTIRE CHAMBER OF COMMERCE — CONGRESS LAST NIGHT, NOBODY RIGHTED THIS MORNING. AND NOBODY BLOCKED INTERSECTIONS OR LOOTED LIQUOR STORES. EVEN REPUBLICAN CONSULTANTS ON TELEVISION THIS MORNING QUESTIONING RESULTS OR QUESTIONING THEM AS A LEGITIMATE INSTITUTIONS. IT DIDN’T OCCUR TO REPUBLICANS TO DO THAT. IT WAS JUST AN ELECTION. YOU LOSE IT SOMETIMES. THAT IS HOW REPUBLICANS THINK. THAT IS NOT HOW DEMOCRATS THINK. THEY MEAN IT. THEY LOST A FEW SEATS IN THE SENATE LAST NIGHT, ALREADY THEY ARE DENOUNCING THE SENATE ITSELF AS IT SOMEHOW UNDEMOCRATIC. THE TALKING POINTS HAVE GONE AROUND, THEY ARE ALL READING THEM. WATCH JOY BEHAR TODAY TRYING TO READ THEM — ULTIMATELY SHE MISREAD THE TALKING POINTS, BUT SHE GAVE IT HER BEST ON “”THE VIEW.” TO BE GOOD DEMOCRATS AND WON THE POPULAR VOTE LAST NIGHT BY 8 MILLION VOTES. RIGHT? BUT THEY LOSE YOU NOT SENATE RACES IN RED AREAS.>>GERRYMANDERING.>>THAT IS THE CONSTITUTION. THE DISTRICTS ARE GERRYMANDERED, BUT THE STATES ARE PART OF THE CONSTITUTION.>>Tucker: YOU CAN’T GERRYMANDER A SENATE ELECTION, OF COURSE, BECAUSE IT IS STATEWIDE. JOY BEHAR DOESN’T KNOW THAT, SHE DOESN’T REALLY KNOW WHAT THE SENATE IS, BUT SHE KNOWS POWER, AND LIKE A LOT OF DEMOCRATS YOU SEE ON TELEVISION, SHE WILL SAY WHATEVER IT TAKES TO GET POWER. REPUBLICANS SHOULD UNDERSTAND THAT. BUT IT IS NOT JUST DEMOCRATS WHO SHOULD HAVE LEARNED SOMETHING LAST NIGHT, THERE WERE MAJOR LESSONS FOR REPUBLICANS, TOO, ONES THEY SHOULD PAY ATTENTION TO. HERE’S ONE, VOTERS CARE ABOUT CAMPAIGN PROMISES. IF YOU DON’T FULFILL YOUR CAMPAIGN PROMISES, IT TURNS OUT THEY NOTICED, THEY REMEMBER. THEY DON’T CARE FOR IT. IN 2016, REPUBLICANS IN CONGRESS PROMISED TO COME I DON’T KNOW, BUILD THE WALL, GET RID OF OBAMACARE, DEFUND PLANNED PARENTHOOD, THEY GOT ELECTED ON THOSE PROMISES, THEY DIDN’T DO ANY OF THEM ONCE THEY GOT ELECTED PAIRED MAYBE THAT IS ONE REASON THEY LOST OF THE HOUSE LAST NIGHT. HERE’S ANOTHER LESSON. IMMIGRATION MATTERS. NOT JUST ON THE LEVEL OF INDIVIDUALS AND FAMILIES AND CARAVANS, THE THINGS THAT WE DEBATE EVERY NIGHT, BUT ON THE LEVEL OF ENTIRE POPULATIONS. IMMIGRATION CHANGES WHO LIVES IN A COUNTRY AND WHO VOTES. ULTIMATELY, THAT IS WHY IT MATTERS. YOU NEVER KNOW THAT FROM LISTENING TO THE COVERAGE OF IMMIGRATION STORIES. YOU WOULD THINK THE QUESTION OF WHO COMES INTO YOUR COUNTRY AND UNDER WHAT CIRCUMSTANCES WAS ENTIRELY A MORAL ISSUE. REALLY A QUESTION OF PERSONAL DECENCY. GOOD PEOPLE ARE FOR OPEN BORDERS, BAD PEOPLE ARE AGAINST THEM. THAT IS ALWAYS A MESSAGE, INCLUDING TODAY.>>AS YOU KNOW, MR. PRESIDENT, THE CARAVAN WAS NOT AN INVASION, IT IS A GROUP OF MIGRANTS MOVING UP FROM CENTRAL AMERICA TOWARD THE BORDER WITH THE U.S. WHY DID YOU CHARACTERIZE IT AS SUCH?>>President Trump: BECAUSE I CAN SAY INVASION, YOU AND I HAVE A DIFFERENCE OF OPINION.>>DO YOU THINK YOU DEMONIZED IMMIGRANTS IN THE SELECTION?>>President Trump: I WANT THEM TO COME INTO THE COUNTRY, BUT THEY HAVE TO COME IN LEGALLY. THEY HAVE TO COME THROUGH A PROCESS.>>CAN ASK ONE OTHER QUESTION PAIRED>>President Trump: THAT’S ENOUGH, THAT’S ENOUGH. THAT’S ENOUGH.>>PARDON ME, MA’AM.>>President Trump: THAT’S ENOUGH.>>IF I MAY ASK, ON THE RUSSIAN INVESTIGATION, ARE YOU CONCERNE CONCERNED.>>President Trump: I’M NOT CONCERNED ABOUT ANYTHING. THOUGH INVESTIGATION IS A HOAX. THAT IS ENOUGH, PUT DOWN THE MIC.>>MR. PRESIDENT, ARE YOU WORRIED ABOUT INDICTMENTS COMING DOWN IN THIS INVESTIGATION?>>MR. PRESIDENT.>>President Trump: I TELL YOU WHAT, CNN SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF THEMSELVES HAVING YOU WORRY WORK FOR THEM. YOU ARE A RUDE, TERRIBLE PERSON, YOU SHOULDN’T BE WORKING FOR CN CNN.>>Tucker: I HATE TO SEE THIS BECOME A NEW STORY, A COST OF SUCH A BUFFOON, BUT HE IS SUCH A BUFFOON THAT THE WHITE HOUSE FELT THEY HAD NO CHOICE BUT TO RESPOND. PRESS SECRETARY SARAH HUCKABEE SANDERS PUT UP THE STATEMENT, “PRESIDENT BELIEVES IN A FREE PRESS AND WELCOMES QUESTION OF HIM IN THIS ADMINISTRATION, WE WILL, HOWEVER, NEVER TOLERATE A REPORTER LACING HIS HANDS ON A YOUNG WOMAN JUST TRYING TO DO HER JOB AS A WHITE HOUSE INTERN. THIS CONDUCT IS ABSOLUTELY UNACCEPTABLE, ALSO COMPLETE A DISRESPECTFUL TO THE REPORTER’S COLLEAGUES, NOT TO ALLOW THEM AN OPPORTUNITY TO ASK A QUESTION.” IT WENT ON TO SAY, “AS A RESULT OF WHAT HAPPENED, THE WHITE HOUSE SUSPENDING THE HARD PASS OF THE REPORTER INVOLVED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE CLEAR CLOS CLOSE. ” WHATEVER ELSE THE EXCHANGE YOU JUST SAW WAS, WHAT IT REALLY WAS IT WAS A DIVERSION FROM THE POLITICAL REALITY OF IMMIGRATION. HERE IS THE POLITICAL REALITY. CALIFORNIA WAS ONCE A SOLIDLY REPUBLICAN STATE FOR GENERATIONS. IT IS NOW AMONG THE MOST DEMOCRATIC. WHY? IMMIGRATION. TO DIFFERENT PEOPLE LIVE THERE, NOT SURPRISINGLY, THEY VOTE VERY DIFFERENTLY. SOMETHING VERY SIMILAR IS HAPPENING RIGHT NOW IN NEVADA, ARIZONA, NORTH CAROLINA, MANY OTHER STATES. THAT IS REFLECTED IN LAST NIGHT’S VOTE TOTALS. CHECK THE NUMBERS. DEMOCRATS OBVIOUSLY KNOW THIS, THAT IS WHY THEY OPPOSE BORDERS, BECAUSE IT HELPED THEM WHEN RECOLLECTIONS. REPUBLICANS, MY PROFOUND CONTRAST, HAVE BEEN VERY SLOW TO PICK UP ON THIS. THEY ARE VERY LITERAL. THEY STILL THINK IMMIGRATION POLICY IS ABOUT VIRTUE. REPUBLICANS ALSO SEEM TO THINK THEIR ECONOMIC MESSAGE IS WORKING, THEY ARE VERY PROUD OF THE TAX BILL THEY PASSED IN CONGRESS, THE CONGRESS THAT THEY WILL CONTROL NOT MUCH LONGER. PAUL RYAN IS ALWAYS TALKING ABOUT HIS TAX BILL — BY THE WAY, THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH TAX CUTS. BUT REPUBLICAN STRATEGIST SEEM TO FORGET THAT HUGE PERCENTAGE OF AMERICANS DON’T PAY FEDERAL TAXES. BY DEFINITION, THEY DON’T CARE VERY MUCH ABOUT TAX CUTS. IT CUTS TO TAXES THEY DON’T PAY. FOR THEM AND FOR MANY OTHERS, THE ECONOMY IS NOT MEASURED IN STOCK PRICES AND GDP NUMBERS, THEY ARE CONCERNED ARE TANGIBLE CONCERNS. WHAT DOES GAS COST? CAN I AFFORD TO LIVE IN A SAFE NEIGHBORHOOD? WILL I GO BANKRUPT IF I GET SICK? THESE ARE REAL QUESTIONS FOR TENS OF MILLIONS OF PEOPLE. THE PARTY THAT EFFECTIVELY ADDRESSES THESE QUESTIONS, GENERALLY WINS ELECTIONS. REPUBLICANS, FOR WHATEVER REASON, TENDED TO IGNORE THESE QUESTIONS. THAT IS A BIG REASON WHY THEY JUST LOST THE HOUSE. BUT THERE IS A LARGER ISSUE THAT WE OUGHT TO MEDITATE ON, THE REPUBLICAN PARTY IS A CONSERVATIVE PARTY. REPUBLICANS ARE SUPPOSED TO CARE ABOUT FAMILIES, NOT JUST A LITTLE BIT, BUT ABOVE ALL. AND YET INCREASINGLY, THE AMERICAN FAMILY IS VANISHING. YOUNG PEOPLE CAN’T AFFORD TO GET MARRIED OR TO HAVE CHILDREN. TAKE A LOOK AT THE NUMBERS AT SOME TIME, THEY ARE PUBLICLY AVAILABLE, THEY ARE SHOCKING. AND THEY FORETELL AN OMINOUS FUTURE FOR ALL OF US. A COUNTRY WITHOUT STRONG FAMILIES IS A WEAK COUNTRY. IT IS A VOLATILE PLACE, A CHAOTIC PLACE, IT IS A PLACE SUSCEPTIBLE TO POLITICAL DEMAGOGUERY. IT IS WHAT AMERICA IS BECOMING. IF YOU WANT TO STOP THAT SLIDE, SUPPORT FAMILIES. IT IS THAT SIMPLE. PUT ANOTHER WAY, IF YOU ARE SUPPOSEDLY CONSERVATIVE ECONOMIC PROGRAM DOESN’T MAKE IT EASIER FOR YOUNG PEOPLE TO GET AND STAY MARRIED AND HAVE KIDS, HOW IS IT REALLY CONSERVATIVE? IF COUPLES ARE TOO POOR TO HAVE CHILDREN AND YOU ARE NOT HELPING, WHY SHOULD I COME AS A CONSERVATIVE, VOTE FOR YOU? I SHOULD NOT VOTE FOR YOU. I WILL NOT VOTE FOR YOU. I WILL WORK AGAINST YOU, THAT IS MY PLEDGE. SUPPORTING MARRIAGE AND CHILDREN IS THE BEST — MAY BE THE ONLY

  1. Nancy needs to step down to old for decisions power trip let some one take the spot. Democratic or republican don’t care as long as it someone els younger. Conservative gets lost God step back cause his a gentle towards our not robotic freedom of choice to who we love or what we stand for . And then satan step up towards our choice of living. And all hell brakes loose do to a fallen sinfully nation

  2. Where are all the feminists complaining about Jim Acosta disrespecting a woman?  Or do they figure that because she works for Trump she deserves no respect?

  3. The left need to run the right YouTuber. Drop the PC sjw victim complex. But rather Populist, policy driven progressive- universal healthcare living wage jobs bill tuition. Intellectual not inflammatory but has balls have humility but vibrant progressive social democracy orientated non radical no snowflakes time and place to go on offensive not quite eat the rich but not corporate democrat and not divisive not a moderate pro free soeexh candidate

  4. Trump let Acosta speak so what do you expect. Trump is way too nice. He over-estimates himself and under-estimates dems. Like a marriage disaster we are fast heading for the only solution left 🙁

  5. Only stupid people comment on this channel. Where were you during the 7 years when Republicans both in the House and Senate publicly declared that their only service to America was to ensure that Obama became a One-Term president? How hypocritical can the Republicans be? Shame on you party of racists, rapists and liers!

  6. idk about other states but in mine (WI) I saw TONS of Illinois plates a month before voting because you have to be here at least 30 days to vote, then after voting I saw NONE, along with that they also added voting to legalize weed witch got all sorts of non political people in who just check dem with out knowing anything about the candidates.

  7. Tucker is Right about supporting FAMILIES. And we can do this by:
    1) Educating ourselves before starting a family
    2) Not allowing others to addict you to drugs, alcohol or others. Just don't even try.
    3) Stop cults that militarize the Family Unit in order to out-breed and replace our Gov (ISLAM)
    4) Help those who are mental (addicts, LBGTQ, Muslims, schizophrenics…) but don't let them teach our children that they are normal. They are not, and they are weakening our primary strength – which is our Family Unit.
    5) Show compassion for those who are born into a repressive government, but do not allow thousands of them to storm your borders. Remember, mothers and wives sacrificed thousands to USA soldiers to gain the Freedom and wealth that the USA enjoys.
    We are going to continue to replace these Democrat Politicians who force our borders open to gain migrant votes so Democrats can control the House and Senate. These Democrats have committed treason….as the California Mayors Office and the California Senate in Sacramento is NOW OWNED BY MEXICAN DEMOCRAT POLITICIANS !!!!!

  8. 0bama started the "racist" rhetoric stronger than ever during his 8 yrs. Democrats only care about Blacks, Asians, Mexicans, immigrants, Woman, etc. ONLY during elections then very quickly forgotten till the next elections. Democrats ONLY care constantly about one thing…POWER, the power to control, control over every one and everything. Thank God for the second amendment
    !

  9. The biggest lesson for Tucker from the midterm elections seems to be that you should own a gun and hire private security to protect your home and family if you work for a conservative network. I hope his family is alright.

  10. We live in a lawless country. Elections are a sham. Voting means nothing when criminals are in charge of counting the votes. I have lost all faith in our electoral process, and I am about ready to unplug and give up. What's the point anymore, if the Democrats are just going to change the results that they don't like? We've lost Arizona, we're about to lose Florida, and we may lose Georgia. What's the point?

  11. If you actually listened to what the candidates said, even the ones who lost, (Gillum, Beto O'Rourke, etc) they talked very little about Trump and succinctly laid out the party platform. You choose to be dishonest (again) Tucker. You also choose to be a hypocrite (your choice) — THIS is your big takeaway and argument against Democrats, coming from a Republican shill whose party focused on Benghazi (how many investigations did you waste taxpayer money on, even though each of the nearly dozen investigations found no wrong doing? … Wasn't birtherism the primary focus of your party and president? Yeah, talk about wanting to see his Tax returns, a man who has bragged about not paying taxes…vs the party who made it a primary issue to see a birth certificate (even though Obama released the one and only official Hawaiian BC back in 2008)

    Tucker has no credibility or integrity.

  12. If the tax returns are no big deal, the why doesn't danold chump just show them in the first place. What is he so afraid of.

  13. From the perspective of a 30-year Hardline Centrist who speaks to many, many, people on both ends of the spectrum, this election was no real surprise. The power to back Trump's main goals is in the Senate but there is a legitimate concern of going back to an overtly religious hardline, Corporate Right, that causes people to want balance in our Government. If there were no fear of Republicans ignoring the middle class in favor of big business, of using the Government to re-install "American, Family, or moral values" or more excuses for proxy wars and Nation-building, I honestly believe we would have seen the end of the Democratic party.

  14. Not being bad but that mob that attacked Tucker seems to have changed him he is less fake and shorter tempered i like it, to quote WWE..this is awesome..

  15. The Senate is un-democratic it was designed to be. We are a Republic and it is well past time our Politicians started remembering that.

  16. Joy Bahar (spell it right? Who cares) is a classic example of the ignorant uneducated low IQ low information person (and loyal to the liberal-communist agenda) that the globalist trillionaires that control the mainstream media put into a position of celebrity and influence to spread globalist anti-America propaganda— hating on all those that love America and their fellow Americans.

  17. I'm no Republican but wow that was really well said. Read a transcript of this in an article and it sounded like a Ronald Reagan presidential address :O.

  18. I kinda wanted the Dems to win the house and not get the senate. Then they get to share some of the blame and the House holds the purse so its quite quite powerful. I don't think they quite get that yet.

  19. (((Nadler))) & (((Schiff)))…
    For being only ~2% of the US population, they're VERY over-represented in the power positions. Nepotism?!

  20. 13:31 Exactly. No one voted for Trump to get a tax cut on wealthy people passed. It may well be the reason the economy started booming, but if that is so it tells us something very evil about our leading economic movers and shakers.

  21. Democrats want two things, get Trump, and gun control they are not interested in improving the economy, jobs, education, its all about power and getting the president why people vote against a good economy baffles me but that is their message.

  22. How about getting Maxine Water's tax returns, or Nancy Palosy's??? we might would learn something from those, probably more than what we will from Trump's! LMAO!

  23. It is very blatant the Dems are concerned with destroying and not with the welfare of the country. Since they are not representing anyone but themselves they need to have theit salaries paid on a merit basis much as a salesman only get paid by commisions on their succesds created for the company they work for. You do nothing for the people you earned another teat on the food stamp program. You eant more? Do more! It is that simple.

  24. Supporting family is supporting the country. Can not agree more! But the new generation is asking more freedoms go to other pole~less families!

  25. One of the very few times we see President Trump pissed off! Oh he was ready for war! And he responded by nuking Acosta.

  26. The Dims are still butt-hurt that Hillary Clinton lost the election. Hey, Dims, get over it. 2020 is coming up, and you can run Hillary again and she can LOSE AGAIN.

  27. Tucker Gets it. Thank you Tucker! I hope more people can be made to understand what we all are up against. God bless America and Keep us safe as one Nation under God. Deliver us from evil. I will pray for you and your family Tucker. I hope they stop harassing the only people who really care.

  28. The democratic party has really gone downhill since 2 years before Trump came into power. Then massively after Trump was actually elected. There has been a real shift in terms of blind shouting for certain issues…people don't really understand how systems works, whats possible, and for a very basic principle, what WORDS mean. The lady asking the President inferring that Nationalism = White Nationalism and insinuating racism, is ridiculous. If you add to a word you've clearly changed the meaning of the original word. As ineloquent as the president sometimes is…he handled that question very well & was 100% in the right there.

  29. Tucker the propagandist is lying about Trump's tax returns. He knows it spells the end of Trump for fraud, undocumented foreign money flowing into him and years of money laudering.

    He's also lying about the reporter callng Trump a white nationalist. She did not. Carlson should stop lying. But if he does he won't have anything to say.

  30. Absolutely, we want Donald Dump's Tax returns. No president since Richard Nixon (another Republican) have the tax returns been so guarded. Why???

  31. At 4:11 of this video …"Nobody cares if Adam Schiff can prove that Putin stole the American Election"? Really … Really… Is Fox News really American or are just the arm pit of Russia.

  32. The DNC is proving once again their politics is all about identity, which is exactly what brought Trump into the White house.

  33. If you're wondering what can be done to raise birth rates in (amongst white people) western nation, just take a look at Hungary – that country's birthrate is booming now!
    And that's all because of the right politics Viktor Orbans' nationalist party has put into practice.

  34. PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP, WE VALUE YOUR COURAGE AND YOUR QUEST FOR PEACE, LET OUR LOVE PROTECT YOU, ALWAYS. This is very dangerous, millions of people gave their lives against 2 armies trying to force unity upon Europe and the good people of Europe, they are responsible for the first and the second world war and many other wars. Macron has no respect for himself and others, Macron is deceiving himself and others, he is deceiving himself the good people in France and around this world. If a war becomes necessary, as a last resort we will have to fight against France and Germany globalism or ideologies, however It is our wish that whatever democracy remaining in France and Germany and around this world has the strength to resolve the matter. We love Europe, we love peace and for many years we have observed and respected the ego mind of the sleeper. Macron and all others like him will be defeated without a war or with a war. We oppose deception, we have no desires we accept reality as it is, we live beyond our thoughts in such a way when we go to war we already won. Armies and their technologies in this world or other worlds cannot win, when victory inevitably comes we celebrate it as if it is a funeral. Love is the creator fear the destroyer these 2 emotion carry equals amounts of energy; making this quantum reality as it is, follow the middle path in between, do not try to fix the world or change it, it cannot be done. we are here pretending not to be God, there is no other purpose. The whole Universe is a perfect democracy, because key to evolution is not intelligence but the capacity to adapt to change. Please let the internet to become a free and independent democracy, not controlled by any private corporation such as google. What am I? I am awake, I am the observer beyond thoughts.

  35. What does it say about America that these idiots won the house. They are smart? They want more taxes? They want open borders? They want communism? All?

  36. Fired? Seriously? Sessions has offered his resignation 3 times prior to this and Trump declined saying that he WILL NOT resign until after the midterms. There is NO surprise here Tucker.

  37. I really believe he loves our country. I can't stand these reporters. I'm a nationalist. I'm not a racist. It's actually OKAY to put your country first before other countries. It doesn't mean one is racist. Geeze. I hate these people and have grown so intolerant of it. I think it's more than posturing. I really think they believe he's racist. Also, I HATE the view. Joy Behar is an idiot. LOL. Gerrymandering? Really?? LOL. Wow.

  38. TUCKER, i get sick in the stomach watching CNNN dressing down and humiliating PRESIDENT TRUMP like some cheap pawn thug…and i say these being BLACK AFRICAN man from KENYA..TRUMP THESE, TRUMP THAT.. come on ,,as if if TRUMP dint exist some cable would close shop…its standard procedure world all over that you enter into any country LEGALLY..EVEN HERE IN KENYA..And we deport illegalls here daily and are processed through the court and DEPORTED..whites,chinese, other africans who come in ILLEGALLY or come in and engage in criminal activities..but thopse who abide by the rule of law here, have nothing to worry about…PRESIDENT TRUMP is human just like everyone of us and make mistakes in the past but DEMS bahave like they ARE THE 24 ELDERS SEATED BEFORE THE THRONE IN HEAVEN and have no dirt in there 'lockerroom'…for some if crosschecked will make TRUMP look like childs play…DEMS,, the world is watching and not foolish to buy every cheap talk simply coz its TRUMP.. ALL BELIEVERS IN AMERICA, STAND BY YOUR PRESIDENT COZ HE IS FULFILLING GOD'S WILL..I SPEAK THESE PROPHETICALLY…TRUMP IS THE JEHU OF THESE GENERATION…PRAY FOR HIM..

  39. The Dems don't know what they are going to get with Trump having a new AG who will be willing to indict many of them including Hillary. They want war. They are going to get it.

  40. We have learned that Democrats steal elections and hate Trump! And also we learned that Fireman Sam is not a prophet, but probably caused a lot of Christians not to vote!

  41. Enough people are leftists that the Left wins a lot of races. It doesn't matter if their opponents use logic or common sense the Left still wins no matter what malarkey they spout off!

  42. Tucker is right , a country has to support marriage families and children to survive . Everything democrats are against.! Democrats are the party of Evil !

  43. Tucker, Florida is in a RECOUNT. Georgia is in a RUN-OFF ELECTION. It ain't over. The Republican Party is the party of Rich White Men and you can see it in the men they chose.

  44. Tucker, what about the caravan? Why aren't you talking about it any more? It's closing in, Tucker!! Into the bunkers everyone! These people are armed and dangerous!There are kids who can throw dummies and rattles! They have nursing mothers who can squirt their milk in your face! Pray God they spare at least a few of us!!!!!

    I'm actually in Britain…. do you think I'm safe? Oh, God this is worse than the blitz. The British government should be issuing ration books NOW!!! Fortunately we have a few WW2 Fighter planes left, so at least we can hold them back at the Channel for a while!!!! I'm off to join the Home Guard.

    We are praying for you America. May God keep and protect you in the face of that horde of ten-year old kids!!!!!!!

    In the words of Winston Churchill (almost) 'Never in the field of human conflict have so many been scared shitless by so few…."

  45. I'm sorry but the left have lost their minds. They have now, it's clear… when's the last time you've heard anyone on the left, whether political or civil, make a good point that is rational, sensible and important about…anything ? Really. It's all either narrative, emotional or worse yet, agenda-based.

  46. As congressional districts become majority brown they will cease being represented by whites in congress. Look at Ilhad Omar in Minnesota and Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez in New York. People are tribal and race matters to non-whites also.

  47. The communists/leftists are trying to take over, and they're trying to get rid of Trump and anyone else that's not along their lines, we must go against and start going after HilLIARy and Obuttplug FOR ALL THEIR CRIMES, let's turn the tables, LET'S FIGHT BACK

  48. That progressive tax favors sticky fingers, when a real tax favors the people, i love you carson but even you are smart enough to know that, 75042 not scared

  49. Trucker you’re the man!! ps I’m a Canadian citizen and I hate Canada. For the right reasons I’ve been trying to move to U.S for the past 10 years. I can’t get a work visa but applying and hoping that I’d land a job sponsorship, and that’s the only option I’ve got! And watching ppl from 3rd world countries with no brains, no skills, no education nothing to offer to U.S who I know are Criminals, just would be allowed to be dumped in thousands!!*

  50. Well the GOP cheated like crazy. North Carolina gop candidate went to old black people who may have been invalids and took their mail in ballots then threw them away or changed them. Democrats looking for trump’s tax returns. GOP looking for ways to win by cheating. Who do you think is worse misguide people or cheaters. GOP and tucker are 🐃💩.

  51. The Democratic Emblem is a Donkey because they are Jackasses. Pretty obvious there. But, someone, back in the day, got that symbolism going because they were freaking awesome and could tell the future. They're all a bunch of Jackasses and always will be a bunch of Jackasses. Eee-aaawwww! LMAO
