Fox News host Tucker Carlson called out Democrats and the liberal media for denying the existence of illegal immigration issues at the U.S. southern border.
Ahead of President Donald Trump’s address to the nation on Tuesday, Carlson warned viewers to watch for predictable behavior from Democrats and those on the left who repeatedly accuse the president of making up the crisis at the border.
“Today’s slogan is simple: Don’t believe your own eyes. None of this is real. Everything is just fine,” Carlson said on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” Tuesday, airing video clips from various media outlets slamming the president and claiming the border crisis – as well as the migrant caravan that was headed to the border a few months back – do not exist.
“How are millions of Americans experiencing the same hallucination at the same time?” Carlson questioned during his opening monologue.
He argued that many in Washington, D.C. believe the issues are made up since Americans never wanted Trump elected or a wall built.
“Donald Trump’s election and a wall on the Mexican border – nobody in Washington could imagine wanting either one of those things or, for that matter, imagining anyone else in America wanting them. So there has to be a secret cabal pushing this crap,” Carlson said.
He slammed the idea as “delusional” and “demented,” explaining that those who deny the existence of the problems just want “more of the same” and are “arguing for a permanent extension of the way things are.”
“The thing they fear most,” he added, “is an assault on the status quo.”
“They like the status quo. They’re deeply vested in the status quo,” he said. “And what this group fears most is that some idiot will come along, asking a bunch of uncomfortable questions and wreck what has turned out to be a very good deal for them.”
“What you’re really looking at here is a self-satisfied aristocracy,” he added. “What they fear most is a challenge to the way things are.”
Carlson urged viewers to “keep that in mind” as the responses unfold to Trump’s address later.
“We don’t need walls, they’ll tell you. And they’re right,” he said. “They don’t. They already have their own.”
