Tucker Carlson says the “sketchy” 2020 election has led to a tenuous legitimacy of American democracy Carlson: “An election so sketchy that many Americans don’t believe it was even real” Written by Media Matters Staff Published 02/24/23 9:04 PM EST Video file Citation From the February 24, 2023, edition of Fox News' Tucker Carlson Tonight TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): It is galling to be lectured about democracy by a man who took power in an election so sketchy that many Americans don't believe it was even real. Joe Biden has never had the majority of American support for a single day of the Ukraine war. In fact, Joe Biden is far less popular in the United States than Vladimir Putin is in Russia. That is not an endorsement of Putin -- it's just true. And it says everything about Joe Biden's tenuous legitimacy. Democracy? Please. We're adults. Stop lying to us.
