LAURA INGRAHAM: The Democrats definitely have some culpability here, because they have ratcheted up the criticism of both the president, and the president's supporters, in ways that are very disturbing.
Going right to race, right to racism, it's the -- the race play that they've made is so toxic and so bad for African Americans, Hispanics, white people, poor people, certainly not good for anyone, and they have countenanced this.
Now, they can come back with their condemnations now, but people are whipped up into this frenzy, that Donald Trump hates all these minorities, he thinks this, he's anti-immigrant, he's this, "We have got to stop him at all costs, he's the clear and present danger to the country." We listen to Schumer, listen to Pelosi, that's what they paint him out to be.
TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): Well, the establishment on both sides have done a terrible job of running this country. They've failed by every measure.
INGRAHAM: Have the Bushes come out and condemned antifa?
CARLSON: No, of course not.
