TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): Ok. So we called Microsoft, they're very literal of course, they make bad software for a living, they're not artists. And we asked them what is this? And they said we're doing it to help blind viewers, but of course they're lying because the guy with the mohawk, which is the most interesting thing about him, never even mentioned that he had a mohawk. So they're lying to the blind people. 

And by the way, how would someone who can't see know what a red shirt looks like anyway? Keep in mind, this isn't some eighth-grader going crazy on TikTok, this is a choreographed presentation from one of the most powerful companies in the world. So how long before they make your kids do this?


I know a couple of blind people, I've never heard a blind person complain about anything. In fact, the people I know in my life who are the least likely to complain about anything are visually impaired. I don't know if there's a connection but I've certainly noticed it. There is no lobby of blind people yelling at Microsoft, they're doing this to let you know how great they are.
