DNC Vice Chair Michael Blake appeared Tuesday on Fox News to discuss the 2020 election and the Democrat launched a tirade against Tucker Carlson, suggesting that Carlson is a racist.
Carlson apparently touched a nerve when he predicted that former first lady Michelle Obama will enter the 2020 Democratic primary — after all, Mrs. Obama is a goddess above reproach for much of the left.
“She is not running,” Blake said when asked by America’s Newsroom co-host Bill Hemmer.
“The core question is why the hell does Tucker Carlson still have a job here in the first place? The reality is this is someone who said white supremacy is a hoax and why does Fox still allow him to be here in the first place?”
Hemmer made a valiant effort to redirect Blake back to the topic, but he was a man on a mission.
“Not going to happen,” Blake said again of Michelle Obama getting into the race. “But the core question is [Carson] shouldn’t be here at all.”
“We get it,” Hemmer said. “We didn’t bring you on to talk about Tucker Carlson, we brought you on to talk about the Democratic field.”
Blake said his party was happy with the lackluster field of candidates and spoke about President Trump’s “failed promises” — this being a president who has most likely kept more campaign promises than just about any president in modern times.
He then took another cheap shot at Fox News while criticizing Trump for “ignoring the truth,” before talking about jobs amid record-low unemployment.
Blake, a state lawmaker in New York, representing the Bronx, has a habit of skipping votes in the state capital, reportedly missing 15 of 61 session days earlier in the year. He is also fond of calling President Trump a racist.
As for Carlson, he wasn’t exactly critical of Mrs. Obama.
“The Democratic Party is ripping itself apart over race and gender and class,” Carlson said on Monday’s program. “Michelle Obama, let’s be honest, is one of the only people who could unite the party’s warring faction.
“Could she win a general election? Let’s see, a poll earlier this year found that Michelle Obama was the most admired woman in the world,” he added.
As for the possibility of her entering the race by the summer, he accurately implied that the media would be more than willing to cover her shortcomings until Election Day.
Conservative commentator Allie Beth Stuckey weighed in on Twitter to remind the DNC official no one twisted his arm to go on Fox News, and that the network invited him on to hear his perspective.
“Intense moments on Fox with DNC Vice Chair Michael Blake continually bashing Fox & Tucker Carlson and claiming that Republicans & Fox “ignore the truth” while Dems are telling the truth (lol). Dude- the network had you on to hear your perspective. You didn’t have to go,” Stuckey tweeted.

Blake’s appearance on Fox News is a prime example of how ideological Democrats are today and a clear example of how stupid they must think American voters are.
Here’s a sampling of responses to the story from Twitter:
I flipped on FOX this morning and there he was babbling, off point, ranting about #TuckerCarlson seriously do #Democrats even understand their hate an vitriol are NOT a means to convince voters they have anything to offer? Hacks and Pundits ranting on air are why WE VOTE #TRUMP

@BillHemmer handled him with such poise and professionalism as usual. He was extremely rude. Why bother to come on?

Absolutely a rude man! So glad @BillHemmer shut him down politely. Try doing that on CNN, not a chance! I actually just tweeted about that myself!!

Blake rudely pressed canned Democratic talking points about Democrats talking about jobs and truth was laughable. The only thing I have heard from Democrats for the last 3 years is impeach, impeach, impeach, Muller and Ukraine. Does he think voters are that easily manipulated?

That’s the pot calling the kettle black… I can’t believe they don’t see their own bias.

Good job by @BillHemmer giving him the chance to get back on course, which he barely did. Would have been easy to bounce him quick after the Tucker comment, but Hemmer allowed him enough rope to let a Blake look petty, and Bill look professional.

That lib nut should never be on Fox again. The dems are talking about jobs, while President Trump has created millions of them.
Let him preach his lies to CNN or MSNBC.
