Hours after a school shooting that left at least 10 high school students dead, Fox host Tucker Carlson almost completely ignored the massacre, spending a total of 17 seconds of his hour long primetime show on the shooting. Carlson instead filled the show with segments about robots, diapers and the royal wedding. While Tucker did host NRATV’s Dan Bongino for a discussion, they completely ignored the shooting, instead complaining that Trump supporters were called “deplorables” and speculating that Democrats support MS-13. Below is what Tucker Carlson covered instead of the Texas school shooting:
Speculating that Democrats added defense of MS-13 to the party platform
NRATV's Dan Bongino and Carlson completely ignored the shooting, instead attacked Democrats
DAN BONGINO: Think about what she said, “we’re not comfortable with anybody being called animals.” A little list for you of things the Democrats are comfortable with. They’re comfortable calling NRA members terrorists, Obama comparing Republicans to Iranian hardliners, tyrants, calling Americans deplorables who vote for Trump. I mean really?
The Pentagon has increased investments in robots
Trump administration's introduction of guidelines to restrict funding to clinics that provide abortion.
Whether parents should seek consent from their babies to change a diaper
The royal wedding
