Fox News host Tucker Carlson torched today’s radical Left — led by “demonstrably mentally ill” Congressman Adam Schiff — for trying to stage a coup against a duly-elected U.S. president.
To do this, Carlson says the Democratic Party is weaponizing Obama holdovers in the CIA and FBI to subvert the will of the 63 million Americans who voted Trump into office.
“This is an administrative coup d’état,” Tucker said. “It’s not an overstatement to say that’s what it is. A lot is at stake here. If these people whose names you don’t know — who were never elected to anything — succeed in taking over the government and running things in real life, we’re done. Our democracy won’t recover.”
Carlson said the Left’s ongoing attempts to undo the results of the 2016 presidential election is a dangerous precedent that will wreak havoc for generations to come.
“The president — not just this president, but future presidents — will be figureheads,” Tucker explained. “They will be beholden to a praetorian guard of intelligence officials in Washington. If they fight consensus in Washington in any way, they will be sabotaged and hurt. That’s what [today’s Left] are trying to do now. Washington clearly wants to pretend the 2016 election never happened — okay, that’s amnesia. But now, they want to make sure that no future election will matter.”
Specifically, Carlson called out Adam Schiff, the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee. As BizPac Review reported, Schiff read aloud a parody version of Trump’s July 25 phone call with the Ukrainian president.
“Keep in mind that isn’t some guy babbling in the men’s room at Starbucks,” Carlson said. “That is the man who chairs the mighty House Intelligence Committee … we trust him with the most sensitive information. And yet he is clearly, demonstrably mentally ill.”

Schiff was widely mocked on Twitter for his dramatic re-imagination of the call. Why? Because if President Trump’s call was so evil and improper, you wouldn’t need to hype it to convince TV viewers that he did something wrong.
“What is surprising is how so many of these extreme and mindless statements come from people with long and distinguished careers, debasing themselves in order to be on television,” Carlson said.
Carlson continued: “The prime example is the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee: Adam Schiff of Burbank, California. He recently went into a kind of trance and delivered his own prophetic version of what he believed must have happened between President Trump and the president of Ukraine.”
“His position saying the President should be impeached for asking why Joe Biden’s son was paid $600,000 a year by a foreign company and why the prosecutor who investigated the foreign company was fired after a threat from Joe Biden. Asking about that gets you impeached! Remarkably for the moment, the rest of his party appears to agree with him. Ilhan Omar and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are thrilled by all of this!”
Carlson said the radical left’s takeover of the Democratic Party is proof that the once moderate, self-proclaimed “big-tent party” is gone.
“You may be wondering whatever happened to the Democratic Party, the party of ‘working people,’ the fabled ‘big tent party.’ That’s gone. Increasingly, the Democratic Party looks like an alliance between the Women’s Studies department at Oberlin and a group of unscrupulous Intel officials.
The group is both flaky and authoritarian. That’s a rotten combination. It’s a rotten combination for the Democratic Party itself.
For 230 years, this has been a republic with an elected president. Over time, it’s worked pretty well. But now, without a single vote being held — no referendum on this at all — bureaucrats in Washington have decided to change the system.
They would like a new form of government where America’s real rulers are the unelected bureaucrats in the Intel agencies in Washington. They aren’t hiding this. They’ve been fighting for it pretty openly since before Trump’s presidency began.
You may hate Trump, but you should still be against that. But that kind of thing has been happening ever since.”
