TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): I can't get past a simple fact, since rape is a real thing, it is an act of violence, and there's actually quite a bit of it in the United States, and some of it is downplayed, by the way, as you well know. I can't get over the fact that people accuse rape 25 years or 20 years after the fact. If you are raped, which is a felony, don't you have an obligation to the rest of our society to put that person behind bars, to protect the rest of your neighbors? Don't you?
