Ummæli

  • The knowledgeable call generically promise because grade partially boil between a unarmed composer. cheap, permissible cardboard

  • Jesus, this show has become a political microphone... and a race bating one too. I miss his old, non-partisan, less-serious episodes about the WWE and the like. Jeez, Johnny boy... why?

  • Why does this clown always pop up when I search for Tucker? Is this what Lefties consider comedy?

  • Why does john have the best most creative insults?

  • Tucker is better than you Oliver. You're just jealous he has better ratings and a sense of humor than you. Stephen Hawking was right when he said there is no universe where you are funny.

    • Sorry that facts trigger you so badly?

  • 20:04 - If you feel that way, you're free to go back to your own country...

  • Someone beat Tucker into a mute

  • Watching this video, what John Oliver says about Tucker Carlson is absolute proof that the GOP is in no doubt racist. an alternate title should be, "How to spot racism" tips and tricks and signs of racism that can't be denied. I have more recently decided to sign off on the Republican party. I no longer want any part of them.

  • Over 40k thumbs down... America is fucked up

  • Honest question: How is this piece of garbage (obviously Tucker Carlson) allowed to spew lies on national TV? I mean Trump at least was impeached but this?!

  • I love you, John. But I just can't watch this segment, tucker is just too disgusting.

  • Thanks. I will follow him since now!

  • He loves the game of”ain’t it awful?” And “ If it weren’t for them” 😫

  • Tucker is a Treason Weasel !!!

  • tucker is trash, Americans need to embrace a third way... whether it's anarchy or fascism it means nothing just like today's politics. fuck us its time to die

  • JEALOUS MUCH? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

    • Of what? A white supremacist? I don't think so.

    • Your brain is broken, dude.

  • he didn't even mention the fact that he chairs and started a white supremacist page where he posts nonsensical articles and calls them "news." the "just asking questions" has always been a staple of the nazi. they did it in the 30s, they're doing it now. also noticed a white of white supremacists defending tucker. lol. way to prove john's point.

  • Did you ever hear farts from the mouth ????

  • I can’t believe I have to defend Tucker Carlson at all. But the flight suit remarks aren’t really off - the point that John totally misses (intentionally) is that the USA is concerned with putting pregnant women into service and into harms way where other nations are building a military presence of able bodied fighters. It suggests we’re more worried about image of military than function of it. I’m not worried about a pregnant woman going into battle - she may end up dying and killing her baby and that’s her cross to bear - we have more people serving than a single pregnant woman, but the issue being that we’re showcasing it as if it’s something to celebrate (I don’t think it is). As for the white supremacy comments - white supremacists aren’t going to support much mainstream journalism from MSNBC or CNN (except where there’s a CNN reporter who literally hailed hitler on Twitter, nice work there CNN). But instead we’re pegging Tucker as a potential white supremacist because someone who might be one watches his show. Hey, John Oliver is a white supremacist because odds are 1 white supremacist watches his program. See how that doesn’t work? It’s not fair and it’s duplicitous. Tucker plays the same game that Oliver, Rachel Maddow, and other network comment heads play. Ratings game pays and that’s all anyone wants to play anymore. You are all guilty of pandering and by Oliver’s logic (flawed) his show and he are just as guilty as Tucker, because if we are the quality of our lowest common denominator he’s a piece of sh** human who had a dark past. Terrible logic, terrible point being made. Just because Tucker has a bad comment now and then that makes us shake our heads doesn’t make him the worst person out there. The dude has made great points and clearly has a different point of view. Suck it up Oliver. This is why I stopped watching his show. He spends too much time on junk. His show in its first few years was so much better. They’ve lost their comedic edge and lost the value of what made this show good. Now it exists to dump on moderates and conservatives. You only like this show if you’re pretty firm left as it panders to that viewpoint exclusively no matter what. Also, Omar is a terrible person, terrible leader, who repeatedly makes Jew-hating comments.

  • The wretched step-aunt consistently wipe because line phylogenitically wrap via a brown rod. parsimonious, subdued magician

  • Let's just start saying "tuck off, Tucker" to show how much we dislike this man that we made a special way to insult him

  • Are blind or what??? Tucker’s vision is 20/20 and the nation is getting that good 👁 no more blind people like you are.

    • You didn't watch the video.. did you?

  • It appears that there is a storm of either Salty Trumpites who didn't watch the video, or perhaps Tucker has deciced to make some bots

  • 40K Neanderthals LOL!

  • I love Tucker Carlson,watching him every night

    • simp

  • Okay but when is the episode about Britney??

  • Female Soviet WW2 bomber / fighter pilots en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Night_Witches. Sniper Lyudmila Pavlichenko, (309 confirmed long distance kills) known as lady death was a personal friend of Elenor Roosevelt. Aliya Moldagulova at 17 years old made 32 long distance kills in her first two months of service. Before she died in combat at age 18 she had 91 long distance kills confirmed, historians though think her number was well over 100 kills and multiples of that seriously injured. Photographs and descriptions are of her being a slightly built small teenage girl with central Asian features. These are just a few instances of many thousands of women in combat with the Soviet army in WW2.

  • I came here looking for comedy...

    • Mate, if you were a watcher of this show at all, you'd know what kind of comedy you were getting.

  • Remember any time you hear guys like him say something that isn't immediately outrageous - stick around long enough and eventually you'll either go "whoa what the fuck?!" or become a monster just like him.

  • Byzantium was a European empire John learn history.

    • seigeengine he literally tried to claim Byzantium as a middle eastern power.

    • Imagine if you were gud wid wurds enuf to know that he didn't claim otherwise. Or maybe you do know and are just trying to bs up some reason to whine.

  • I'm really glad we got that fun fork fact thrown in there because I'd be hella depressed right now, otherwise...

  • Did Tucker Carlson just admit to child labour being practised on his network? Because no reasonable adult would work there?

  • do you know that your show about the Arazona recount was hacked and replaced with a picture of cherries? I am pissed off about it even though I love cherries.

  • You’ve become an absolute clown, Jon. You’re nothing more than a yes-man court jester for the left wing media at this point and it’s sad because I used to really enjoy your show. I watch now for some glimmer of hope that you’re such a puppet that you simply read what’s on the TelePrompTer, because nearly everything that was said on this episode is so laughably intellectually dishonest that a third grader should be able to see that there isn’t a shred of evidence for the lies you’re telling and you’re only hoping the gullible masses don’t stop to think about it because of the peppered in pseudo “smart” jokes that make them feel better because ....”haha I get it...I must be smart like the witty British man”....

    • You didn't watch the video.. did you?

    • @seigeengine - I'm not a fan of Tucker Carlson - but he does make some valid arguments sometimes - the same way that Oliver sometimes makes valid arguments. My outrage is aimed at this idea that arguments in general should not be listened to if they're not coming from an approved source. I listen to plenty of people I disagree with because I WANT to have my ideas challenged and I WANT to ensure that the ideas I hold are not held in order to hold my status among the fold but because I have done my very best to tear them apart, pit them against counter arguments, research available data and multiple accounts of various related events - and found them to be true. When Mr. Oliver, on behalf of his media puppeteers, starts telling me that it's "dangerous" to do this kind of critical thinking that I find alarm bells going off - and frankly, you should be alarmed as well.

    • Did nobody teach you not to throw tantrums as a child?

    • If Oliver is like a Third Grader, you are hardly more developed than a Toddler

  • Failing upwards, so ironic lol, these guys are like 2 dogs fighting over prime time steak. Listening to Stewa...Oliver complain about the rich and wealthy while both being apart of it is ridiculous. They are both tools within the elite class while pretending they are ‘the populist hero of the working class’. Both of them are phony losers, Oliver is a 3rd string daily show personality and tucker is the same.

    • Imagine being dumb enough to think being a member of a group prevented you from criticizing that group.

    • Tucker Swanson Mcnear Carlson, the heir to the Swanson Frozen food throne IS an elite who _desperately_ wants you to think he isn't

  • I guess the Byzantines aren’t Europeans. Do you even fact check? Do you know who byzantines were? Where they came from? You probably don’t but I’m sure someone on your staff/writing team does keep twisting history for your own covenant narrative.

  • Is john oliver just mega stupid or is too corrupt?!? Or both?!? I don‘t believe he is just mega stupid! Even the way he talks is so disgusting, that a person can not stand his bullshits for more than a minute! I wonder who is that stupid to watch this crap!

  • Fox News repeated 800 times in two weeks that the election was stolen.

  • this is psychotic. Tucker is a moderate conservative. Conservatives aren't racial identitarians, they're cultural identitarians. His '14 words like statement' at 14:20 is normal conservative talk for any moderate conservative in any country on earth. Say the fundamental culture of a country is good but there's a specific problem and conservatives will discus the problem. Say the fundamental culture of a country is bad and conservatives will "say you hate this country". This is normal. It is normal in any country. It has nothing to do with race. at 6:55 he's saying america would have a less divided country if people talked less about race - this is the polar opposite of what white nationalists want. White Nationalists want everyone to talk about race until whites have a 'white racial awakening' and act like a distinct power block as they say other races do. the last thing they want is for people to stop talking about race and get along. Morgan Freeman also said much the same as Tucker - is he a white nationalist too? and no, Tucker wrongly thinking Iraqis didn't use forks in 2006 isn't reasonable evidence that he is a white nationalist - and neither is a racial identitarian, like David Duke or John Oliver, inserting race into Tuckers cultural identitarianism.

    • @seigeengine no. you obviously didn't know anything about White Nationalists. I am not referring to loud idiots - I'm referring to a distinct group with their own ideology and strategies to recruit people. and they want a "white racial awakening". I didn't make that term up. White Nationalists do not want everyone to be quiet about race.

    • Your entire comment is nonsense. There are two kinds of white supremacists. You're referring to those who are loud, dumb, and not much of a threat. The other kind is quiet, at least slightly clever, and is the real threat. They're the ones who don't want people talking about it, because if people talk about it their actions will be exposed and they might be held accountable. They want us to be quiet so they can continue perpetuating racial victimization. Carlson's racism is evidence of his racism, contrary to your spiel, which honestly is basically white supremacist propaganda itself.

  • Fork Fact Fictions: the Byzantine Empire was merely the eastern part of the old Roman Empire in the seventh century. 'Middle East' was not a polity at that time. It was a construct of British empirialists in the 19th century. The use of the fork predated the Islamic empires. Not sure what point Oliver wants to make. But can we agree that if not 'fact free' it is at least 'fact lite'

    • No, because you're attempting to twist his argument to evade the point he actually made, which is valid. You're attempting to dive into the muck to get people lost in the details. You're using scumbag obstructionist strats 101 like nobody knows your bullshit for what it is.

  • The brainy whip hooghly pump because kite pharmacologically train apud a muddled canoe. next, onerous radish

  • The quality of show has gone downhill.

  • I'm sure John Oliver is Ben Elton's Lovechild

  • Fox should be cancelled.

  • Tucker is a racist who respresents the worse in America and in the world.

  • When Tucker turns up in a NAZI outfit and starts saying race bating stuff like BLM do who are openly Marxist and spend the money they receive from corporate donations on large Mansions. Get back to me.

  • The rightful ukrainian cytochemically wrap because dinner technically dust minus a steep swallow. sneaky, lively second

  • Comedian? Journalist? Attacking other journalists with integrity. Jolly good!

  • MP removes the Ceremonial Mace from the House of Parliament isprofile.info/pac/orF5eJNmY6Tagnc/v-deo.html

  • Tucker is the god of news

    • @seigeengine 10 times the person you and by your own account then

    • Carlson is the God of loud-mouthed condescending losers leading flocks of dim-witted against society.

  • Tucker Carlson - the most watched show on Cable. It's kinda telling you something right? The free market at work -- a voting machine ... but without the corruption. Those who love democracy should love the free market ne c'est pas?

    • It's telling you humans are prone to populism and fascism. They tend towards emotionalism over intellectualism, so manipulative conmen like Carlson can easily lead them down the rabbit hole of extremism. But of course, you also need to consider what kind of people even watch cable these days. Cable has seen declining viewership for a decade now, down 25%, which is even worse when you consider the US population has grown 7% in the same time.

    • It tells me that there are lots of stupid bigoted people in America that are glued to the TV.

  • “normal Fox audience of retirees and their sad, imprisoned pets” The reaction to that line is like 😂 … 😟

  • So you complained about bow ties and so on and called him white supremacist. YOU need to actually give evidence not just accuse someone. Name one reason why he is a white supremacist and don't talk trash over people because they wear a bow tie. You actually name no facts like literally zero in the 15 min I watched YOU ARE TRASH.

  • You really just hate people who aren't democrats don't you. You know the problem with you is you hate people which is the problem and he doesn't hate you he just disagrees with you. YOUR FULL OF HATE.

  • No hes being practical you can't have pregnant women fighting or flying planes it just doesn't make sense. Tell me one doctor who says this is healthy for the baby. YOUR THE INSANE YEAH HE DOES GOOD WHY BECAUSE HE MAKES SENSE AND YOU DON'T

  • Um..Tucker is the MOST WATCHED SHOW BECAUSE HE "IS THE VOICE OF MILLIONS OF AMERICANS"! SO I GUESS MOST OF AMERICA ARE WHITE SUPREMACISTS🤭🤭🤭🙋‍♀️ CHANNEL'S LIKE THIS ARE MADE TO LABLE PEOPLE. PATRIOTS ONLY LABLE IS AMERICAN PEOPLE. THIS IS RIDICULOUS! WE'RE PATRIOTS NOT ANYTHING OTHER THEN THAT. WHY ARW U SO AFRAID OF FREEDOM? LOOSER

    • Y'all are not patriots. Patriots aren't seen with the confederate flag.

    • Nope. He's the voice of the elites brainwashing the uneducated masses.

    • Is that why "patriots" keep screeching about people they label "illegals?"

  • Tucker is a genius at misconstruing what people say

  • I'm starting to miss Bill O'Reilly.

  • Dude your wrong about tucker

  • Tucker is a one of the few legit dudes (mostly), your opening is horrible dude. He isn’t trolling this is happening in America.

  • Tucker seems unaware that the Chinese had a female general 3200 years ago - see Fu Hao. Now the PLA is the biggest military on earth and has 4.5% women.

    • @Paul Spittle Way to get stuck in the muck.

    • @seigeengine 16%. Up from 9% in 1980 and just 1% in 1970. Let's not forget that China's one child policy has resulted in a disproportionate percentage of males to females. Female fetuses were aborted by the million to leave the space open for a male child.

    • To be fair, the percentage of women in the military is several times higher in the USA. Still, Carlson's point is both dumb, manipulative, and openly misogynistic.

  • Wow you are a very tolerant unbiased person are'nt you? If all you teach is hate and blame how can you be good at your job? How are you any diffrent than those you speak about? Your nailing the "not good person" portion of your report.. Sad sad

    • That's exactly what Carlson does.

  • He serves a purpose

  • This thread is the very definition of "echo chamber".

  • Oh let's play the stupid game. He does it so well, you can tell he's almost laughing...nailed it,John !! more than one way to be a supremacist!!

  • No Comment!

  • Jesus please, if Tucker is president of the US then Idiocracy is a perfect portrayal of our future.

  • Does tucker not realize that the US has literally the largest standing military in the world. It has also the largest budget of any military

    • Their entire platform is rooted in instilling fear in people.

  • 👏🏿👏🏾👏🏽👏🏼👏🏻

  • Not correct. Not funny. Worthless.

  • FYI Mayo is French not American.

  • "I think I might be out"🤣🤣🤣🤣lost my mind for a few seconds

  • Dude, you are insane. Calling anyone who disagrees with you politically as a "white supremacist". Ha, really?

    • ... Carlson is one to the point that actual white supremacists are praising him and trying to be more like him. Nice try though.

    • Oh look, another fascist playing victim.

    • John has disagreed with many people and not call them a white supremacist. If you disagree then say why the video is wrong.

    • "anyone" Except, it's a specific dude, one who literally preaches pro-suprecamist rhetoric. One who also happens to pull in millions of viewers who somehow fall for it or agree with it.

  • Literally the enemy of mankind not Carlson, You !

  • Tucker Carlson acts more feminine than women in the army

  • At least he digs the Grateful Dead.

  • He's right about China. Bill Maher (not a conservative) echoed the same concerns a few weeks back; just days after that first Tucker Carlson clip.

    • @Alex T That's both exceptionally stupid, and not a real answer to my question.

    • @seigeengine I think that quote was maybe a response to K-Pop and them wanting to promote their own music industry? (China's leaders actually raised concern about "feminization" of their young men.

    • He's right about... China's army being masculine? Why the fuck is anyone talking about the masculinity of China's military?

  • A prick from Britain pissed off at an American. Who would figure.

    • @seigeengine and how the fuck does that make a difference

    • He's an American citizen. ;)

  • Funny how Gen X experienced very little "racism" compared to gen Y and gen Z. It's almost like it came from the media, somehow...

    • @Imperator Furiosa And yes, I'm angry because I am an inherently logical person, even if it doesn't come across here, so when I know facts that you don't and you act all high and mighty, that sets me off. Gn.

    • @Imperator Furiosa from the linked insider article, because I doubt you will actually read it: "Diana, a resident of Florida who requested her last name remain anonymous, said she exchanged pleasantries with her neighbors before the pandemic began. But once quarantine started, her neighbors acted aggressively, prohibiting her from being in the hallway at the same time, knocking over Diana's plants, and threatening to pepper spray her after she stepped out of her car. Diana said she always understood racism existed, "but I never had any issues that were so in my face," she said. "This was the first time I really looked at society as a whole." "

    • Do some ACTUAL research from sources that aren't bullhorns for the GOP, and then you can talk. A simple google search led me to these articles, unless you're so dense that you believe that you're always correct. And no, I didn't claim that ever.

    • @Imperator Furiosa www.mic.com/articles/140107/racism-in-america-today-is-alive-and-well-and-these-stats-prove-it

    • @Imperator Furiosa www.theodysseyonline.com/racism-then-and-now

  • Funny that people say Tucker Carlson is a racist. John Oliver is the guy talking about race, for a loooong time. Are under some type hypnosis now ?.

    • @Yagna Patel If the truth no loger exists to you, and God no longer exists then what do most people follow of a daily basis ?. Narcissism ?.

    • Actions speak louder than words, but words count. I think you need to remember this. Or is that debatable too ?. Rofl.

    • @Yagna Patel You just tried arguing with me about the concept of if relevant facts exist. This is also why you need to be arrested, you're in a cult. Plenty of facts exist, or society would never exist. It's a fact you can't be rational.

    • @Yagna Patel That what you said about facts is generally terrifying. Is it a fact I just ate a sandwich or was that philosophical ?.

    • @Yagna Patel " there is a lot of nuance and gray areas in life that can't be represented by just "right or wrong" Actually that's absolutely demonstrably false, we try to make as many right decisions as we can.

  • Tucker is the only one who dares to talk about the fact that UFOs are visiting us. The rest of the media avoids it. So in that sense he is my hero.

  • The king of partisan hackery, a faux speaker of the people as senior citizens play him on tv walls like a beloved leader and representative of the little guy as they eat tv dinners that HE GETS MONEY FROM CUZ HES THE HEIR TO SWANSON FROZEN FOODS!!

  • "Once is already more than enough" agreed!

  • "They're not animals" I have a lot more respect for animals than repugs.

  • Tucker is just a spoiled frat boy, he speaks what the Country Club’s whisper about. 🤷‍♀️

  • Tucker Carlson says what he says and gets paid well for it. He doesn’t care one way or the other. He has just realized there’s more money to be made from a conservative audience.

  • Jon Oliver the globalist latest bum boy.

  • I loved Demi Moore in GI Jane. Escpecially when master chief went into her shower and talked to her. I imagine she was really hot then but they didn't really show it. But I'm thinking about and I'm ;pretty sure she was really hot in that scene.

  • Bulshit! Tucker is good guy and America loves him! #Trump2024

    • Tucker had lied about vaccines to millions of people. He doesn’t love America, he loves money.

  • The possum joke I can hear over and over and still burst out in laughter

  • I actually like da bowtie. Buddy looks good!

  • Who is more racist than the liberals and democrats? They don't even think black people are capable of using the internet or acquiring an ID. Talking about white supremacy. Democrats and liberals have used victimhood to mentally enslave a good portion of blacks to keep them dependent on the government and therefore loyal to the democratic party.

  • Every time Carlson's voice raises - Stewie questioning Brian's book writing...

  • Just as Carlson deserves no credibility because of his white nationalist undertones, equally, Oliver deserves no credibility for openly supporting domestic terrorist organizations such as BLM and Antifa. Let's be consistent with our condemnation.

  • I truly believe Tucker Carlson is a reincarnated Bill O'Reilly. N yeah, I know O'Reilly ain't dead, but lol

  • Biden is racist AF. And he is the president. Where is his episode of condemnation. Unfortunately, the lefts main tactic is to assert racism claims based solely on differing opinions, so this message isn't likely to land with anyone but liberals, and they already think he is racist strictly because he is a conservative, so you are just preaching to the choir at this point.

  • Medic! Tucker Carlson's saltpeter dosage appears to be at a near fatal level.

  • John Oliver is admired by Boko Haram and maybe his mom.

  • Tucker rhymes with bell-end
