Former Fox News host Tucker Carlson attacked President Joe Biden in an episode of “Tucker on Twitter” that was released on Thursday, calling him a “wannabe dictator.”
The conservative pundit also showed a clip of White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre avoiding a query regarding Fox News’ recent chyron that accused Biden of authoritarian behavior.
“If the banner on Fox was false, why the hysteria? Lies don’t seem to bother anyone anymore. If some cable news producer had called Joe Biden a genius or accused him of being secretly Sudanese, would anyone be yelling about it? Would Fox News have apologized for it? Probably not. But calling Joe Biden a wannabe dictator, that stung. So you’ve got to wonder, if you’re being honest with yourself, is Joe Biden a wannabe dictator?” Carlson said.

“Of course Joe Biden’s not a wannabe dictator. Just because he’s trying to put the other candidate in prison for the rest of his life for a crime he himself committed, doesn’t mean he has a totalitarian impulse, come on, that’s absurd. It takes a lot more than jailing your political rivals to earn the title ‘wannabe dictator.’ That’s the consensus in Washington tonight.” he continued.
Carlson went on to say that the corporate media would defend Biden if he mistook his wife for his sister or couldn’t finish a sentence.
He compared how the liberal media handles Biden to how the North Korean media disregarded the enormous, “grotesque” tumor on the back of Kim Il-Sung’s skull.
Tucker also made reference to Biden’s son Hunter and his numerous controversies, as well as his brother James generating money off of his reputation or his wife Jill declaring herself a doctor.
In addition, this week the president referred to gender-ambiguous youngsters as “our children,” an event which Carlson also cited in his case against Biden’s alleged tyranny.
“You share your children with Joe Biden, evenly, right down the middle with alternating weekends. You’ve got joint custody with Joe Biden and you can thank heaven that you do. A nation is like a family, every family has a head, a father, that’s Joe Biden. Our nation’s father. And this, ladies and gentlemen, is now his fatherland. Just don’t call it a dictatorship or we’ll have to issue a statement disavowing you.” Carlson remarked.
