TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): I mean, look, I feel for Campos. He didn't do anything wrong. He was walking by, shot or hit by a ricochet. I'm still not clear exactly what happened.

So, I'm not attacking him in any way, I'm just asking an honest question when I ask you, "Why is he a hero, exactly?" Ellen DeGeneres did this whole thing, "You're a hero and we love you, we're celebrating you."

According to the timeline, I don't -- where does the "hero" part come in? I'm honestly confused. What does that mean?
