TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): Part of this is our fault in the media. We set up these just terrible incentives where you don't get on television unless you say extreme and mindless things.
What's surprising, though, is how so many of these extreme and mindless statements come from people with long and apparently distinguished careers, debasing themselves in order to be on television.
Really, the prime example is the chairman of the House intelligence committee, Congressman Adam Schiff of Burbank, California. He recently went into a kind of trance and delivered his own prophetic version of what he believed must have happened between President Trump and the president of Ukraine.
Keep in mind, that isn't some guy babbling in the men's room at Starbucks, that's the man who chairs the mighty House intelligence committee.
We trust him with our most sensitive information, and yet he is clearly -- he's demonstrably mentally ill, Adam Schiff is.
