Fox News Host Tucker Carlson, who regularly praises Donald Trump on his show "Tucker Carlson Tonight," bashed the president in a rare interview with Swiss Publication Die Weltwoche.

On Tuesday, during an interview with Urs Gehriger, Die Weltwoche’s editor, Tucker admitted that he “hates” when Trump boasts and unleashed a variety of insults criticizing the Commander-in-Chief.

“It’s not my culture, I didn’t grow up like that,” he said, explaining his distaste for boasting.

After being asked whether be believed Trump has kept the promises he made during his campaign, Carlson responded: “No.”

“His chief promises were that he would build the wall, defund planned parenthood, and repeal Obamacare, and he hasn’t done any of those things,” the notorious Fox News host continued, before attributing the reason to perhaps Trump’s inability to keep focus.

“I don’t think he’s capable of sustained focus,” he continued. “I don’t think Congress is on his side. I don’t think his own agencies support him.”

When asked to elaborate, Carlson didn’t hold back on his scathing remarks about the president, whom he publicly supports on a nightly basis.

“It’s mostly his fault that he hasn’t achieved those things,” Carlson said, referring to the campaign promises he mentioned earlier. “[He] knows very little about the legislative process, hasn’t learned anything, hasn’t surrounded himself with people that can get it done, hasn’t done all the things you need to do.”

Carlson and other Fox News hosts, such as Sean Hannity and Jeanine Pirro, typically defend Trump on most of his decisions while rebuking the “liberal left” for what they see as unfair criticisms.

The house of cards is falling...
>>
Is the picture from a manga
>>
Dont forget he also promised that he'd build that wall "at no cost to the taxpayers".
>>
It's only when massive dick suckers like Sean Hannity and Jeanine Pirro jump ship that Trump's fucked.
And Trump has insulted Hannity personally multiple times and Hannity, being a total bitch is okay with it.
>>
>>323258
Carlson is one step short of Hannity. The ball is most certainly rolling.

Two months ago anyone on FOX NEWS calling out the president like this would be unheard of.
>>

>Two months ago anyone on FOX NEWS calling out the president like this would be unheard of.
Except for Shep. He's actually a sane Fox host.
>>
>>323247
Rats jumping ship because it's getting too hard to pretend he's innocent I'm betting. We shouldn't forget that these people supported him chipping away at the norms of government ethics at one time when it's all over.
>>
you guys do realize that this isn't fox jumping on the liberal "fuck blumpf" train, right

it's people criticizing him for not being conservative enough
>>
Not gonna lie, everyone knew this administration had a 80% chance of being total garbage, I wish Fox News had the balls to go down with the ship as well so they could stop peddling to mouth breathers.
>>
>>323353
It's very obviously criticizing him for being a liar and publicly incompetent
>>
>>323247
>Tucker Carlson derided as conspiracy loon not worth listeneing to
>BUT WHEN HE SAID "ORANGE MAN BAD", OH MAN, SO PROFOUND

Also

>left sing source
>smug liberal talking point
>anime girl OP image
Remember when this person used to spam and literally flood the board?
>>
>>323373
I never saw Tucker as a conspiracy loon. He just seems like an asshole.
>>
>>323335
Yes, except for Shep, obviously. He's like the minty python guy popping up and going 'and now for something completely different'.
>>
>>323335
I'm really shocked CNN or MSNBC haven't managed to poach him yet. Fox News must be paying him crazy amount of money, or he's really happy being the big fish in the small pond that is facts at Fox News.

>>323373
You sound obsessed, you do realize this is a current event boards and new content is required all the time?
>>
>>323376
Pretty much this. His job is to toe the Fox line and defend Trump because it makes sure slobbering retards like this guy >>323373 keep watching. It's not about ideology, it's about as revenue. Tucker is basically Ann Coulter but less butch.
>>
>>323395
>>You sound obsessed
>>umpteenth thread with leftist article, smug posts and anime girl OP images
Yep, I'm the one still spamming /news/ after getting caught going around the post limit
>>
Guys isn't this an opinion piece / OP/Ed?
>>
>>323414
It's reporting what a prominent media figure is saying, that's news. Now if the article was written by Tucker himself and he said all those things, that would be an op-ed
>>
>>323416
>If it was straight from tucker, it'd be an op-ed
>But since it's another person saying what tucker said, it's just reporting on an op-ed, so it's different
So all we need to circumvent the "no op ed" rule is to just link and article talking about the op-ed? Neat. What a well thought out set of board guidelines
>>
>>323353
He's outright calling him incompetent, the part about Obamacare is there so his audience can digest what he's saying. It's obvious he's starting to see the writing on the wall, and wants to distance himself from Trump before his potential downfall, so he can claim he didn't really support him anymore
>>
>>323416
>prominent media figure
Nice try Tucker but most people dont know who you are.
>>
>>323417
>i don't understand what "interview" means, this is my excuse to be intentionally obtuse and whine about an OP i don't like, waaah, waaaaaah

retard
>>
>>323424
>i don't understand my opponent's argument, this my excuse to get mad about people not liking me posting low quality articles because I feel like I'm entitled to praise
FTFY
>>
>>323395
I think Fox pays him a bunch because they need at least one actual journalist to be called news. Can't have only pundits.
>>
>>323417
It's also newsworthy because he publicly sucks Donald Trump off on his show and this interview makes it clear that he's being duplicitous.
>>
>>323407
>Implying that's me
You are obsessed, and butthurt too.
>>
>>323353

What the hell does 'conservative' in america even mean anymore?

We went from Reaganomics to Bush era moral crusading in the middle-east to teaparty and 'Obama-is a muslim' to Trumpism. Conservatives are anything but conservative, they flip-flop more anyone.
>>
>>323468
>What the hell does 'conservative' in america even mean anymore?
"Vote R no matter what." Pretty simple.
>>
>>323419
his main point is exactly this:

>His chief promises were that he would build the wall, defund planned parenthood, and repeal Obamacare, and he hasn’t done any of those things

this is a criticism of an inability to follow through on his policy agenda. you're acting like it's some sort of window dressing when it's THE central point. if he had done these three things he could do one trillion things liberals hated and tucker carlson wouldn't say shit.
>>
>>323419

If you've ever watched Tucker's show, he never really defends Trump. It's always anti-left than pro-Trump
>>
>>323774
He's still butthurt that Jon Stewart publicly buttfucked him in front of the world on his old CNN show 14 years ago.
>>
>>323335
>sane
>a faggot
Pick one
>>
>>323258
Carlson is really really close to Hannity.

I think people will start jumping ship, but only because hes looking too guilty to wanna be associated with him in say, 3 months time
>>
>>323395
I think Fox would hate Trump if they could, but his supporters make up so much of their base that if they did finally turn on him they'll have no viewers, because they will side with Trump
>>
>>324411
You should know, being one and all
>>
>>323468
Conservatives have always been about consolidating power to create an oligarchy, they just mastered the art of wedge issues to get the retarded poor people to vote against the self interest.
>>
>>323247
the rats are jumping ship. If this doesn't convince you Trump's days are numbered, I don't know what will.
>>
>>323468
support for corporations and racism is pretty much it these days.
>>
>>323373
Dude, this is a really bad sign for Trump. His public mouthpiece (Fox) is turning on him. Thats a huge blow.

Someone on this thread is going to say something like "oh now Dems love Tucker Carlson?"

NO. Tucker Carlson is still one of the biggest assholes in this country. This is bad for TRUMP that a network that has supported all of this bullshit, especially Carlson, is now turning on him.
>>
>>323395
Shep Smith has a pretty high ranking position at Fox News, that's why they can't do anything about him despite him being sane and rational.

Also, another decent Fox News journalist: Chris Wallace. Cracks me up that Trump and Putin both recently went on Fox News probably because they expected an interviewer that would softball them and instead they got Wallace.
>>
Here's a story someone told me: when Trump Hotels & Casino Resorts tried to IPO, Fidelity Investments decided not to invest in it. Insecure as he was, Trump was furious and claimed things like "trying to demonize him". As a result, the Fidelity Analyst went on a call with Trump & 20 other people, and went through a complete list of reasons why they decided not to invest. Trump was completely silent after that - so much for Trump's great "business skills".
>>
>>323407
Yup, you found him, the sole anon who both likes anime and doesn't like Trump, there's no one else like him out there.
>>
>>324432
>disagreeing with someone is the same thing as completely turning on them
>people actually believe this
Although, this would explain why the left has so much bitter infighting among factions whenever there's an ideological disagreement

>>324546
>there's no one else like him out there.
How many of them spam /news/ with left wing articles that border on op-ed and often times borderline-henati anime images? It's like a snapshot of a mind of someone who thinks they're being edgy.
>>
>>324553
He clearly does it to push people's buttons and by the amount of butthurt I see, it's working.
>>
>>324546
you're the only one who has little enough respect for anime characters in order to drag them through the toilet of modern politics.
>>
>>324639
>ANYONE WHO DISAGREES WITH ME IS NOT HUMAN
>BUT RESPECT MUH ANIME!
>>
>>324780
who are you quoting?
