TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): “You hear me? 250,000 Americans dead. You hear me?" A quarter million people. That's a lot of people. In fact, that's more than the total number of combat deaths over the entire American Civil War -- which, by the way, lasted four years -- condensed into a single month. Imagine, a Gettysburg every day of the week. You can't imagine that. It's too horrible. In the first 30 days, we would lose the equivalent of Reno. The next month, Scottsdale. Then Lubbock, then Buffalo. Pretty soon, there would be nobody left in America. “You hear me? Come on, man! Do what you're told! Cancel Christmas!"
