TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): Let's be totally clear about this and not lie about it. The left doesn’t hate Trump because he’s vulgar, though he is.  They applauded when Barack Obama vacationed with rappers. They think Lena Dunham is an artist. They hired Kathy Griffin. No, they hate Trump because he's a nationalist who says the interests of America and its people ought to come first, and that's fine. Let them hate him for that. The rest of the country loves it. That's the real tragedy of today's tweets. They were a diversion. When the president talks about the people who elected him, he wins. When he talks about himself, the left does. The president was not elected to pick fights with TV hosts. He was elected to promised an agenda that the country actually needs, but nobody else, but him was offering.
