A lawsuit against Fox News exposed a rift between Donald Trump and Tucker Carlson.
Everyone wanted to know how Trump would react.
Donald Trump said one thing to Tucker Carlson that no one saw coming.
Tucker Carlson has been critical of Donald Trump in public.
Carlson’s loyalty has always been to Trump’s “America First” agenda and not necessarily Trump the man.
But Fox News and other conservatives contend Dominion Voting Systems is trying to embarrass Carlson and other Fox News stars by releasing text messages as part of the company’s $1.6 billion defamation lawsuit against Fox.
Dominion published text messages where Carlson criticized Trump in an attempt to shame Carlson.
The corporate media played up the comments hoping Trump — a famous counter-puncher — would then attack Carlson and start a feud with the most popular cable news host in America.
Instead, in his first comments on Carlson since this story broke Trump showed the press really has no idea what they are talking about by posting a video on Truth Social thanking Carlson for showing the unseen January 6 security camera footage as well as Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy for granting Carlson access.
“Patriotic Americans are being prosecuted for peacefully protesting a stolen election. Let them go. They were convicted or are awaiting trial based on a giant lie. A radical left con job. Thank you to Tucker Carlson and Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy for what you both have done. New video footage is irrefutable, absolutely irrefutable. Thank you very much. We have to fight for our country and we have to fight like we’ve never fought before. Our country is great, but it’s in tremendous trouble. We’re a nation in decline. We have to stop being called a nation in decline. They’re laughing at us all over the world. We’re not going to let that happen any longer. Thank you,” Trump stated.
Tucker Carlson showing the January 6 security camera footage enraged the corporate media, Democrats and establishment Republicans like Mitt Romney and Mitch McConnell.
That’s because the establishment of both parties hoped to use the carefully curated narrative surrounding January 6 to disqualify Trump — either in the minds of voters or through criminal charges brought by Attorney General Merrick Garland’s handpicked prosecutor — from winning the presidency in 2024.
Carlson blew up that plan by playing video that showed the media, Democrats, and January 6 committee lied about what happened that day.
And Donald Trump was more than happy to thank Carlson for doing that.
