Why Tucker Carlson is Finally Blasting Trump

Fox News host Tucker Carlson has done a whole lot of devilish work to defend President Trump. As this blog has noticed, the nimble TV debater has used his highly watched program to belittle a whole range of Trump critics, all the while protesting that he was not defending Trump and his minions. Even though he was.

Not on Tuesday night, however. “President Trump, you’ll remember, ran for office promising to fix immigration, make good deals and, in general, do a better job than the corrupt, incompetent lawmakers, he said, were wrecking the country. And he was right, they were wrecking the country,” said Carlson. “And yet, today, in a remarkable twist, the president held a televised meeting with the very swamp creatures he once denounced. He told them he trusted them to craft immigration policy without his input.”

“Amnesty for DACA recipients is the only leverage the White House has,” ripped Carlson. “Once the president agrees to let them jump to the head of the line, ahead of millions of other people hoping to come here legally, the negotiation is over. At that point, why would Democrats agree to anything? Ending chain migration, the diversity lottery, supporting a merit-based system that might actually help America? No chance.” (On Twitter, the president issued this walk-back).
The notion that Trump was highlighting his deference to Congress riled Carlson: “If these are the same people the president now says he trusts to write the immigration bills, the one he will sign no matter what it says, so what was the point of running for president?”

Good question, Tucker Carlson!

Here's the surprising part and Carlson seemed to miss it, so I'll pose the question to DTT.
Why is Trump so anxious to "sign anything" and get it done?? The answer??
What's coming up January 20th?? Anyone??

Trump seemed to be in hog heaven on Tuesday, doing what SOME of his supporters think he does best. The Art of the Deal.
Trump's DACA roundtable discussion was labeled by many of his FAR RIGHT minions as the DACA Lovefest. Some of Trump’s conservative supporters found the spectacle alarming. Indeed, it became clear that while Trump insisted on a border wall, an end to chain migration, the cancellation of the diversity visa lottery, and merit-based immigration, he — and the conservatives in the room — had accepted, in principle, legalizing DACA.

The Art of the Deal: Trump's DACA Roundtable Changes Everything - Breitbart

p.s. Here's a guy to watch: Henry Cuellar, Rep Texas 28th district. Democrat but leans to the Right. The district extends from the Rio Grande to the suburbs of San Antonio.

Outside politics he has served as a professor at the Texas A&M International University in his native Laredo. The son of migrant workers who never made it past the fifth grade, Cuellar has positioned himself as a strong advocate for education and has often described himself as “the most degreed member of Congress,” having earned an associates degree, a bachelor's in Foreign Service, a master's degree in International Trade, a law degree, and a Ph.D. in Government. Two schools in Laredo are named in his honor. WIKI

Rep. Cuellar TRIED to "school" Trump on the border situation and was one of the few who brought up some very valid points that had never been addressed. I thought he was impressive. Naturally, Trump and others SHUT him down pretty quickly.

Trump might be playing stupid on all of this just to lure the Dems in.

Trump says he will sign a DACA bill and then discuss comprehensive immigration. When pressed, he says his wall idea must be addressed first however.

The Republicans have resigned themselves to a "virtual wall" which is code for wasting billions on more cameras, manpower, etc., but no physical wall.

Trump will lure the Dems in with DACA and the Republicans with the "virtual wall" and they will all sit down, sign the legislation, and Trump claims victory on a bipartisan effort. I think both sides will go along rather than to keep tolerating Trump's senility act.

"lure the Dems into"....exactly what?

OH? The key is that Trump "claims victory" and NOT that he actually has won a victory, you know as in actual reality?
Rather like some of the posters here, all that's needed is to CLAIM something, reality does not matter?
Thanks from RNG and TreeDoc

Haa...Trump doesn't need to play stupid, but yes, I understand your point. Trump WANTS/NEEDS THE WALL. Isn't that the bottom line? Because then, no matter WHAT Congress passes or doesn't pass, he gets to claim the victory. Both sides DO SEEM to be going along because they all get SOMETHING from the deal. AND Trump wants this done--some kind of commitment by January 20th because January 20th is when he gives his FIRST state of the union address. Get it??

Interesting on the sidelines was Rand Paul yesterday. Paul (as we all know) is a fiscal conservative and he's not all that happy about the $20-30 billion or whatever for the Great Wall of Trump. "We don't have the money to spend."

When pressed on the issue, Paul stated (and this is so "Trumpian") that he thinks we can build the wall for less.
Then was asked if he truly believed that Mexico would ever pay for the wall. Paul's reply was the ultimate in politic-speak: Well, I suppose that indirectly Mexico will pay for the wall through trade and tariffs. (paraphrased)

These guys just crack me up!!

Democrats are the ones mostly to blame for nothing getting done on immigration, been that way for a long time.
