TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): And yet, according to The Atlantic and HuffPo and Stephen Colbert and countless other arbiters of American news, Carroll’s allegation against the president, which is a felony, is quote credible. It’s a credible accusation. Harvard graduate Lawrence O’Donnell was so impressed by it that he gave Carroll half his show.
“I wish I’d asked for his tax returns, I won’t bring criminal charges because it would disrespect women at the border who are getting raped 24/7” end quote. Come on. This is absurd. These aren’t serious statements from a rape victim. They are wacky soundbites from someone trying to sell a book.
