Tucker gets award for patience, but finally loses it with O’Malley: ‘We have adult viewers on this show . . .’

While a few Democrats are accepting the reality of the FBI’s relaunch of its criminal investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email scandal, the majority have their collective heads in the sand (if not somewhere else).

One of those who won’t accept things for what they are is former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley, who tried — and failed — to make his case on Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends.”

Although he and “Friends” co-host Tucker Carlson battled it out for nearly 10 minutes, the former Democratic presidential hopeful couldn’t seem to wrap his head around the fact that Clinton was the target of a criminal investigation.

At one point, O’Malley attempted to correct Carlson by indicating that it wasn’t Clinton who was under investigation — it was her private email server.

“The server is under investigation? Is that your position?” Carlson asked. “We’re going to charge the server with a crime?”

Although that should have been a wake-up call to anyone else — it didn’t faze O’Malley. He claimed that was exactly Comey’s position.

Carlson noted that although their position on the matter may differ, they should avoid patronizing one another by “speaking in euphemisms,” adding, “Let’s just establish factually that she is under criminal investigation.”

But he still wasn’t buying it. Another who couldn’t — or wouldn’t — buy it was Sen. Harry Reid. The Nevada Democrat went so far as to claim that Comey “may have broken the law” — by doing his job.

Comey announced Sunday that as a part of his probe, he secured a warrant to search the emails contained on a computer shared by long-time Clinton aide Huma Abedin and her estranged husband, former Rep. Anthony Weiner — the target of another FBI investigation.

One Democrat who was able to see the handwriting on the wall, however, was political analyst Doug Schoen, who saw an election of Clinton as the possible forerunner of a constitutional crisis.
