Tucker Carlson reaches to gaslight Fox News viewers on Monday night by saying it was “pathetic” if Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s dying wish was to be replaced by the winner of the coming election, adding that he “chose not to believe it for a second.”
Carlson started by mocking progressives’ reactions to RBG’s death and repeating Trump’s insults.
“They told us that Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death was more than sad,” Carlson sneered. “They said it was a national crisis that imperiled this country’s freedoms. Ruth Bader Ginsburg, they told us, single-handedly kept America from descending into fascism and tyranny. Now that she’s gone, only her words can keep us safe.”
We don’t really know actually what Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s final words were,” he declared. “Did she really leave this world fretting about a presidential election? We don’t believe that for a second.”
“It were true, it would be pathetic because life is bigger than politics, even this year,” the conservative firebrand continued. “We wouldn’t wish final words that small on anyone so we’re going to again choose to believe that Ruth Bader Ginsburg didn’t actually say that, that in real life she was thinking at the end about her family and where she might be going next. Human concerns, not partisan ones.”
