Tucker Turns on McCarthy

Tucker Carlson has accused Kevin McCarthy of being a "puppet of the Democratic Party" after leaked audio revealed the House Minority Leader asked if social media companies could suspend the accounts of some GOP lawmakers in the wake of the Capitol attack.

The Fox News host made the remarks about the top Republican in the House of Representatives while talking about Elon Musk's $44 billion takeover of Twitter, and what that could mean for censorship on the platform.

Carlson then discusses the reports first made by The New York Times that McCarthy asked a group of leading Republicans if tech companies could suspend the social media profile of GOP lawmakers who supported Donald Trump's false claims the 2020 election was rigged after the Jan. 6 insurrection.

During a monologue on Tuesday night, Carlson said that Democrats "favor censorship for political ends" but now some "Republican leaders support it too" in the wake of the revelations surrounding McCarthy.

Love it! Watching them turn on each other. Makes me wonder how long before the Shuckster turns on TFG.

3. I think she could be

given that she appears to be below anyone's radar (despite being on the impeachment defense team).

17. "Never knew McC", but spouting he has no problem with what was recorded while simultaneously

stabbing him in the back. Tucker hangs on every word TFG says and will serve him in any way...YMMV

14. If you listen to the tape, it's clear McCarthy is half-joking.

TRMS played long excerpts from it last night.

The GQP scum on that conference call are fumbling about trying to assess the damage and tossing out strategies to limit it. They discuss various Freedom Coalition clown's borderline-treason public statements.

It's NBD. Carlson will move on to their next bugbear.

15. sure...

...I've surmised for a long time that mccarthy was probably on the DNC payroll...

...being a 'puppet of the Democratic Party' is a lot like trump being a puppet of putin...

...only different...

...remember, a voice for a republican is a voice for trump is a voice for putin...

...I think mccarthy understands this...

18. That's right Tucker, he's our puppet. We bought him right after the insurrection.

We can give you a whole list of our Republican puppets if you want to attack them.
