During his primetime show last night, Tucker Carlson got the news that the United States had bombed Iranian Maj. General Qassem Soleimani in Iraq. In response, he tore into what he called “official Washington” and the establishment’s push to start another war in the Middle East. The Week reported on the segment:
Earlier, fellow host Tucker Carlson saw neither peace nor strength in Trump’s actions. He blamed “official Washington,” though, and suggested Trump had been “out-maneuvered” by more hawkish advisers who might be pushing America “toward war despite what the president wants.”
“There’s been virtually no debate or even discussion about this, but America appears to be lumbering toward a new Middle East war,” Carlson said. “The very people demanding action against Iran tonight” are “liars, and they don’t care about you, they don’t care about your kids, they’re reckless and incompetent. And you should keep all of that in mind as war with Iran looms closer tonight.” Trump, he added, “doesn’t seek war and he’s wary of it, particularly in an election year.” When his guest, Curt Mills of The American Conservative, said war with Iran “would be twice as bad” as the Iraq War and “if Trump does this, he’s cooked,” Carlson sadly concurred: “I think that’s right.”
