tv   Tucker Carlson Tonight  FOX News  July 16, 2019 5:00pm-6:00pm PDT

5:00 pm
to feel as one. in their sacrifice, they tied more tightly the brotherhood of man. their success made our country immensely proud, and we thank them for their courage. ♪ >> good evening and welcome to tucker carlson tonight. allows congress to impeach a president for quote treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors." treason and bribery are pretty clear-cut. you know what those are. but what exactly are high crimes and misdemeanors? debated that question for centuries now, but no longer. this week, a group of newly elected democratic members of congress finally defined the term. here it is. a high crime and misdemeanor is when you insult liberals.
5:01 pm
this weekend, the president wrote a series of nasty tweets about for congressman. you may have read about it. they were ilhan omar, ayanna s. pressley, rashida tlaib and ocasio-cortez. watch. >> to the floor of the house of representatives. >> impeach this president. >> impeach this lawless president today. speak a while. kind of puts everything in perspective, doesn't it? remember, conclude dominic's collusion with russia. obstruction of justice. would justify removing a sitting president. it turned out that none of that was as immoral of hurting ilhan .
5:02 pm
the president though, seems unbothered by all of this. here's what he said today. >> president trump: they should love our country. they shouldn't hate our country. you look at what they said. i have clips of the most vile, horrible segments about our country, about israel, about others. it's up to them to do what they want. they can leave, they can stay, but they should love our country and they should work for the good of our country. >> whatever you think of the president's original tweet, that's what you just heard is indisputably true. lawmakers in this country should love this country and the people country. if they don't, they should be lawmakers. lawmakers who dislike their country are like parents who despise their children. it doesn't end well ever. ilhan omar, for example despises the united states. we don't have to guess about it. she says so often.
5:03 pm
listen to her explained that america and al qaeda are morally indistinguishable. >> when i was in college, i took a terrorism class. his shoulders went up. you don't say america with intensity. you don't say england with intensity. you do don't say the army with intensity. >> cortes doesn't settle for comparing her country to al qaeda. she compares it to nazi germany. >> the united states is running concentration camps on our southern border, and that is exactly what they are. >> list, it turns out this isn't harmless rhetoric.
5:04 pm
in his manifesto, he was killed, by the way. he used a quasi-of cortez's concentration camp line. recently, they suggested even nancy pelosi is a racist. but this is projection like everything they say. these women, they are the ones who reduce other people to their skin color. listen, for example, we have many examples. here's just one. here's ayanna s. pressley saying that if you are nonwhite, you don't deserve to talk at all. >> we don't need anymore brown faces that don't want to be a brown voice. we don't need black faces that don't want to be a black voice. >> what does that even mean? who knows. dare to ask?
5:05 pm
nothing any of these four women can be criticized by definition. that's what we're hearing on cable news 24/7. that's a new rule. okay. but there's a cost to that. the democratic party has decided to defend these lunatics no matter what. that means the democratic party now owns their position. the american people are racist. borders are immoral. the united states is no different from al qaeda or nazi germany. that's what the party is saying. is that ms is the democrats can win the election >> the idea appears to be that if you call enough people racist, you can get elected president. do you think that works question much thicker now. and i think the american people are getting a little tired of it. i hesitate to contribute to this great show, but i'll offer you
5:06 pm
my thoughts for what they're worth. i don't think president trump is a racist. i don't think his original treat was racist. i think it was a poor choice of words, which is what he clarified. what he has said now in clarification is that this is not china. this is america. in america, if you hate our country, you are free to leave. he said that in response to the behavior of the four congresswomen that you are talking about. the so-called squad. i'm not sure the president should exchange playground insults with them. when you try to argue with a fool, that proves there's two. the president decided to do so. the simple fact of the matter is that the four congresswomen think that america was wicked in
5:07 pm
its origins. they think that america and his people are even more wicked now, that we are all racist and misogynistic, and evil. now, this is there entitled to their opinion. but i'm entitled to my opinion, and i just think there left wing cranks, and there the reason, their directions on a shampoo bottle. i think we should ignore them. >> tucker: i wonder though if we can ignore them. the democratic party has made a decision to embrace and defend these four members. by doing that, it's basically taken ownership of their positions, and those positions will defined the political season we are now entering. i just wonder if that's not a massive mistake.
5:08 pm
is there a market for these ideas in america? >> there's no question that the so-called "squad" has moved. left left. rule number one, political combat. never interrupt your opponent when he screwing up. just let him screw up. they are destroying the democratic party. i'm appalled that so many of our presidential candidates are falling all over themselves to try to agree with the four women of the apocalypse. they are entitled americans. >> tucker: of course they are. >> but i'm entitled to say that they are whack jobs. >> tucker: can i ask you one question quickly? you represent a state where
5:09 pm
there are a lot of conservative democrats. what do they think of this question are what did they tell you in private about all of thi this? >> they are embarrassed by it. they don't want to talk about i it. there are embarrassed that this is dominating the discussion in washington, d.c., you right now, this freak show. when we have so many other issues to be talking about. look, i've told the president before, i said, mr. president, pleading loss would not cause brain damage. but he has decided this is the way he wants to communicate. i do not believe his original comments were racist. i do not believe he is a racist, but if the democrats want to continue to pursue this line and say that america is a wicked country and it was wicked when it was founded, and it's even more wicked today, and we need to tear it down and start over,
5:10 pm
i don't think the american people believe that. i may be wrong, but i doubt tha that. >> tucker: senator kennedy of louisiana. in case you needed more evidence that alexandria speefive run the show, today, ocasio-cortez appeared on the house floor for saying that trump is a racist. here's part of it. >> to do anything less would be a shocking rejection of our values and a shameful add vacation of our oath of office to protect the american people. yield back the balance. i have cleared my remarks to the
5:11 pm
parliamentarian before i read them. >> tucker: it was a bizarre moment. pelosi's remarks, how strange were they. was watching this carefully today. she joins us tonight for a recap. what does she think about this question much like a well, it's awful, is in and? for the nation it's awful. it's a sign of how far we have fallen. it's clearly an indication that nancy pelosi, with donald trump's help, has lost that fight with the squad. she was, of course, herself, the inference from a casio cortez is that nancy pelosi was a racist for simply disagreeing.
5:12 pm
what we then saw was nancy pelosi really trying to marginalize and move them away from being the face of the democratic party. that is in part, we believe, because of an internal democratic pole that became public that these four women are not part of a movement. they are not alike. it was a poll of swing voters. the approval rating of ilhan omar was at 9%, ocasio-cortez pushing 2%. socialism is toxic as a discussion and as an issue. there is a realization that these people are dangerous for the future of the party. you would know that if you are not in a coma. this is why, suddenly, and even representative clay chimed in from missouri. saying that their effectively
5:13 pm
immature. bringing back this argument, forcing the democrats to once again embrace them. it just shows you the lack of control nancy pelosi has. she must have known that this was what was going on. the president is always underestimated. yes, david called his approach cold and hard. well, you know what? the future of the country is at stake, and all of our future with our families is a at stak. it was chaos on the floor, and it's an indication of the chaos that democratic leadership brings. >> tucker: it's really remarkable story. breaking news here, in a statement she suggested that she
5:14 pm
was pushed out because she wanted planned parenthood to focus on being a health care organization, and sort of a political outfit focused on abortion. also, we are learning tonight that it according to bus food, she was unpopular because she refused to use trans inclusive language. >> in her letter leaving, her resignation letter, she wanted to find common ground with americans who care about health care and not have it be about the politics of abortion. now, that's another crime, of course. this is the same circle firing squad that we saw unfold in the house. this is what liberals and democrats are doing to each other now, that there is a zero-sum game, that there is such a reservoir of bitter hatred.
5:15 pm
because that's what they promote politically. everyone's a racist, and if everyone is, my friend i'm sitting next to is a racist. and that there can be no part given to the issue of finding common ground with americans in general. dr. nguyen is a medical doctor. that's what americans also believe. >> tucker: tammy bruce, thank you for that. the left has promoted. even as they launch terrorist terroristattacks inside our
5:16 pm
country. death threats against him. here's a preview. congressman joins us after the break. listen. >> you know that i could blow your beep from over a mile away?
5:17 pm
5:18 pm
5:19 pm
compare comcast business to your current provider. my current service provider does not provide half of what you provide.
5:20 pm
and to know that i could save money? i'd be thrilled. this sounds like a whole business package, which would be incredible. so what are you guys waiting for? let's do it. (laughs) comcast business gives you a full suite of products with great performance and value. get fast, reliable internet on the nation's largest gig-speed network for less than at&t. that's 120 dollars less a year. better, faster. i mean sign me up. comcast business. beyond fast. >> tucker: well, the left tries to overthrow the elected president with the crime of insulting them. domestic terror movement right and he is country. he showed up with an ar-15 rifle, trying to blow up a propane tank. he certainly tried. mercifully, he wasn't incompetent terrorist. he may not be so lucky the next time.
5:21 pm
if that happens, it's not an exaggeration to say, cnn, cable news network will have blood on its hands. for years, has been growing in strength and ambition. every step of the way, cnn has cheered them on. >> it says it right in the name appeared antifascism, which is what they were there fighting. listen, no organization is perfect. there was some violence. no one condones the violence, but there were different reasons for these neo-nazis to be there. one, racists, fascists. the other group, fighting racists, fascists. >> did not go there to fight against hate. not long before his attack, cnn gave aid and comfort.
5:22 pm
with an imbalanced, informative look of what they were doing. it was a full-blown propaganda piece. it was a celebration of their commitment to violence. we are not exaggerating. look at yourself. on camera, he progresses their e weapons. >> while. wow. >> i use it for whatever i need to use it for. >> point taken. >> so just in case you think we are being unfair. believe it or not, we tried not to be unfair. the tacoma terrorist himself
5:23 pm
appeared in the episode. here's a screenshot to prove it. let's be clear. fifa is a terrorist organization. they use violence. they don't hide that. they brag about it. fifa has celebrated him as a martyr. as they changed their mind? we asked him if he regretted promoting it. then, we called the network's parent company atn t and asked will this air again?
5:24 pm
at&t has not gotten back to us. we are trying to get an answer to that question. we think it's important. domestic terrorist tried to murder federal agents. they are pretending like nothing ever happened. it's not just them, by the way. not a single democratic presidential candidate has condemned. ocasio-cortez and ilhan omar ignored questions about it. those are the good reactions, actually. some journalists have been praising him this is insanity, and it leads in only one direction. political violence isn't like other crimes. it's far worse than that. it destroys countries. we've got many generations of that serious political violence in this country. thanks to the left, that appears
5:25 pm
to be changing. before that, he was a member of ilhan omar. thank you very much for joining us. i think they've been the most egregious about it, but there are many on the left or encouraging or making excuses. having been inside of the organization, what's your reaction to it question might >> it's ridiculous. it's telling the cnn journalist, he is laughing. this is not a laughing matter. people are dying. people are being attacked because of antifa. we need to be able to hold antifa accountable. >> tucker: so, when you hear some of the prime time anchors on cnn suggests that ilhan omar isn't a threats, you were in
5:26 pm
antifa. is that accurate? >> yeah. i was an antifa when i was just 15. antifa is far more violent today than it ever was. to really understand, we have to go into the college campuses. throughout the country, we have a lot of different professors who are advocating for violence. we have who wrote the antifascist handbook. we had a professor from colorado state university, who said that she was done talking to people on her opposition. that she was ready to punch them in the neck. unfortunately, we are seeing a resurgence of political violence by the left. >> tucker: so, you believe
5:27 pm
that antifa is being incubated on college campuses by professors. >> i think so. i think that's where they are getting a lot of their philosophy from. i'm actually really excited to start a college tour where i'm going to be talking to college students throughout the country about mice story and why i joined antifa. it goes beyond that. we have to look at where the sentiment comes from. i am mexican and i grew up watching telemundo. i can tell you that they are far worse than cnn. they like to teach their audiences that president trump is the worst person in the world, and a lot of people in antifa are taking a lot of ideas from these networks. >> tucker: i'm not surprised at all. gabriel, thank you very much. appreciate it federal agents
5:28 pm
working to secure our borders aren't the only ones in danger from the increasing x is one of them. >> gates, you pathetic piece of blank you know that i could blow your blank head and clean off your shoulders from more than a mile away? watch your back, you pathetic piece of blank. i'm coming after you. >> tucker: that's about as clear cut as it could be. those are threats. here's the remarkable part. according to gates, the fbi has already identified the person there'd a federal federal prosecutor has decided to not
5:29 pm
press charges. >> i reserved word late last week that the u.s. attorney's office where this individual lived had reviewed the message and had deemed them unknown threat. it's obviously a crime. a federal crime to make these types of threats against any federal official. this congress, i should say, we are on record for 10,000 threats against members of congress, and i come down might condemn them whether they are against. this is no way to operate within our country. i just wonder, is it the fact that i've been a critic of some of the senior officials of the fbi? that leads to different people for the people who threaten me as opposed to the people who actually get arrested who have threatened ilhan omar.
5:30 pm
those people actually get arrested whereas when people threaten conservatives. i hope there is not a double standard. >> tucker: who is this prosecutor who told you what we just listen to, clearly a threat of violence, was somehow not a threat? >> it was a u.s. attorney for the northern district of california. they would bring no charges. that we are just supposed to deal with that. people on the left want to talk about threats to our democracy. our democracy is served when our representatives have fidelity to our constituents. prime you at a public event every member of congress should be able to protect the district regardless of their viewpoint. >> have you received any support
5:31 pm
from your democratic colleagues question must take a look been a crazy few weeks for me. a member of antifa assault me at a townhome meeting. stephanie murphy of florida condemned it. she was the only one who condemned it. pete buttigieg staff member so that people should throw on me. i received these threatening messages. no prosecutor seemed to be interested in those cases. this is no way to get together and solve the problems for the country. it's no way to govern, and i wish there would be more bipartisan support for nonviolence. >> tucker: yes. throw on you. would a judge should be ashamed. of course he never will be. calling america a racist country. the left seems to be moving toward something. certainly reaching a tipping point. how much have they changed?
5:32 pm
you'll join us next for some perspective. his good at visionworks, we guarantee you'll see great and look great. "guarantee". we say that too. musicalt
5:33 pm
5:34 pm
5:35 pm
woman: my reputation was trashed online. i felt completely helpless. my entire career and business were in jeopardy. i called reputation defender. they were able to restore my good name. if you are under attack, i recommend calling reputation defender. vo: there's more negativity online than ever. reputation defender ensures that when people check you out, they'll find more of the truth, not trash. if you have search results that are wrong or unfair, visit
5:36 pm
or call 1-877-866-8555. >> the democratic presidential race. you've got to be a victim, or you can't compete. both parents were ibm executive executives. went to yale law school. others, like joe biden have found themselves on the wrong side. vitamins now described as and a purse are. he went to harvard how can he possibly claimed to
5:37 pm
be a victim? or repressed. pete is a victim of racism. ha, you say? as an immigrant and a citizen, my dad cared deeply about this country. a passing student notice, dads brown skin and unique accent, called out "go home. he answered, "i am home." even pete buttigieg's dad, who seems pretty european, really was a professor at notre dame, yet even he couldn't escape america's all-consuming racism. that's the most important thing for you to know. america is racist says pete buttigieg. hateful and racist and he has been a victim of that racism.
5:38 pm
you know what, you can atone for that racism by making the president. that's his pitch. [laughs] greatest story of the year. pete buttigieg is a victim of racism. spiraling completely out of control and becoming something very different. in in washington. what is happening exactly, and what is it he joins us tonight. it's pretty easy to lose perspective, get spun up, forget that it still america. give us some perspective here. how much has the democratic party changed question marks to go the democratic party has changed in the sense that liberalism has changed and the attitudes of
5:39 pm
liberals have changed. what i sense and all this, among other things, is a loss of humility about one's own political viewpoint. and what i see is, people have such conviction and certainty that their views are right and wise and obviously correct, that they therefore believe that anyone who holds opposing views cannot possibly be doing so for any sincere reasons, and therefore, they must be acting out of some ulterior motive. some various motive. that leads to a kind of rage, where you say, how could anybody possibly say this? i get this all the time. it said to me all the time. i hear this on twitter all the time. you used to be a good journalist. you used to be respected. but then you sold out and went to fox news.
5:40 pm
i kept my opinions to myself, so nobody knew what i might've thought. now i'm an analyst and commentator. >> well, you can't possibly be a conservative for the right reasons. you must have sold out. you must be doing it for the money. once you start to take that view, is not very far from the way you hear racist is thrown around with reckless abandon. next thing you know, this is what you get. >> christianity, the country becomes. >> the possibility that we just might be wrong. >> that's exactly right.
5:41 pm
amen. thank you for that. >> you bet, tucker. >> i want to bring you a fox news alert. fox can confirm tonight the associate justice of the supreme court has died. he retired at the age of 90. he was appointed in 1975 by president gerald ford, but later became known as one of the more liberal members. over those years, as justices tend to. he was succeeded by current justice. even after his retirement, into his late 90s, he remained active. just last year, he called for a repeal of the second amendment. speaking of brett kavanaugh, the book has no insights on that
5:42 pm
my experience with usaa epic.are of us. it was an instant savings and i should have changed a long time ago. it was funny because when we would call another insurance company, hey would say "oh we can't beat usaa" we're the webber family. we're the tenney's we're the hayles, and we're usaa members for life. ♪ get your usaa auto insurance quote today.

5:47 pm
it's called "justice on trial." we just spoke with them. >> looking back now, that you've had time to digest all of us, dominic. >> we thought this was the most important thing that the country went through last year. as we were researching and reporting on it, we did draw a lot of lessons, including that thus far, really a lot of people haven't been held accountable for what happened to brett kavanaugh. we go in detail, different people who. how the media covered the story, how the senate broke down in various processes, and how if we want to prevent it from happening again, we have to hold people accountable for what they did. >> tucker: there were charges of felony and rate made. a lot of them. the people who made them, at least in one case seem to be clearly be line.
5:48 pm
>> several people in the process, several people are starting to report crazy stuff to the senate judiciary committee. there were people who admitted in real time, oh, i didn't think you were going to be taking this seriously. i'm just tweeting these things out and just posting things on facebook. unfortunately, we haven't heard much. michael avenatti were also referred. this is not just damaging to brett kavanaugh's reputation. it undermines the senate to actually investigate real claim claims. >> tucker: accused a man of gang rate?
5:49 pm
really? >> they were leaked to the media. the senate investigated what happened. they put out a report. they identified where the leaks likely came from. they said it wouldn't happen again. >> tucker: based on recent court decisions, it hasn't dramatically changed the outcome. at some point, we are going to get a confirmation that will dramatically change the supreme court. what's going to look like? >> yet. we were concerned, one we learned that ashley kavanaugh. she was literally praying that this husband when it get this nomination. she knew what was coming and that what it was going to be really hard on the family. >> tucker: i don't know the cavanaugh kavanaugh, but what at
5:50 pm
person. >> who would want to sign themselves up for this? what happens when you replace any other liberal member of the supreme court customer >> tucker: based on what you know about what just happened, is there any right of center nominee that when it be destroyed by the left at this stage customers to go i think we have seen the game plan. this was done before. this was not the first nomination where you have this. it happened in brutal fashion with kavanaugh. >> tucker: have republicans ever destroyed the life of the supreme court? >> it happened when garland was nominated. they said, we are not even going to consider the nomination. >> tucker: i hope our viewers by the book.
5:51 pm
it's worth it. thank you. >> tucker: america's top colleges are supposed to be. they are not. that's a lie. they are a hotbed of racial discrimination. they still have power to control the way our society is structured. is that a good idea? knows the subject well. after the break. also following freaking news, former associate justin justics passed away at 99 years old >> have their own shows on fox

5:57 pm
number of admission spots that are going to go to people. happen to be related to a politician from new york, what you are effectively telling a middle-class kid or a lower income kid, you don't get that spot, because that's going to go to a kid who is privileged. the third thing we have to be worried about is part of the reasons why our university system is so corrupt and doesn't work well for the broad middle of the country is it isn't actually represented, and it doesn't have the broad middle of the country taken part in its classes and taking part in its public debates. given how important this is, we should want them to be representative of the entire country, and not just say you get a special spot if you happen to be a child of privilege. we should want the entire country represented in these institutions, which of course, they are not. >> you had an extraordinary unusual experience, coming from the middle of the country
