Tucker Carlson: 'Something Else Is Going On'

Tucker Carlson has demanded to know why Joe Biden's closest allies and fawning liberal TV networks have turned on the president over the Afghan crisis, reports The Daily Mail.

Speaking on his Fox News show Friday night, Carlson said: 'What is going on here? These are literally the people who got Joe Biden elected. He wouldn’t be president without these people. Now, just seven months in, they’re telling you he has failed personally? It does not make sense.'

He made the remark moments after sharing a clip of CNN host Brianna Keilar turning on the president over the fall of Kabul to the Taliban after the US withdrew, which she said was 'stunning' to both his administration and the American people. 

Keilar also took aim at Biden's earlier claims that he knew the withdrawal from Afghanistan would be chaotic,  and that its capital Kabul could potentially defend itself until the end of 2021.

He said: 'Afghanistan is hardly Biden’s first disaster. As of tonight, our southern border has collapsed, the murder rate is spiking in our cities, the CVODI vaccines do not work, inflation’s out of control, and the country’s entire population of school children hasn’t been educated in more than a year. All of that’s been going on. None of that seemed to bother CNN in the slightest. 

'In fact, they reserved their energy to attack anyone who noticed those trends. But now, suddenly their anchors are weeping on the air because Americans are trapped in Afghanistan.

Earlier in his monolog, Carlson offered his own theory, insisting that the 78 year-old president 'is senile' and that this week's events - which saw the Taliban surround the perimeter of Kabul's Hamid Karzai Airport - highlighted Biden's inability to govern.

During an interview with ABC News screened Thursday, Biden estimated that around 15,000 Americans, and up to 65,000 Afghans the US wants to resettle in America, remain trapped in territory that is now hostile, with no guarantees they'll make it to safety.

Carlson said: 'We’ve learned a lot in the past five days. Maybe the important thing we’ve learned is that Joe Biden is not capable of running the country. Joe Biden is senile. Saying that out loud is not an attack on Biden.'

He claimed everyone working around Biden knows of the president's alleged cognitive decline - and said the Afghan saga exposed it to the world, putting the US in danger.
