Fox News host Tucker Carlson slammed feminism as the world’s “most corrupt movement” as he called out the deafening silence on allegations made against former Vice President Joe Biden.
Carlson called out the double standard of the “so-called feminist movement” on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” Wednesday as he discussed the recent sexual assault claims against Biden. New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand defended the Democratic presidential candidate this week against the allegations by former Senate staffer Tara Reade.

Noting Biden’s role in running the Obama administration Title IX policy which effectively weakened the rights of the accused, Carlson explained how the “lowest standard of evidence” was used in “kangaroo courts” where defendants “could not effectively use legal counsel or contest the accusations against them.”
“That was the America that Joe Biden created. What would happen if Joe Biden had to play by the same rules he made now? He would be done,” Carlson told viewers.
“Tara Reade’s allegations are not proven, we don’t know if they are true. But far weaker claims destroyed many young men on college campuses. But of course, Biden isn’t playing by those rules and never would,” he added.
“Why isn’t he forced to?” the Fox News host asked.
“Because the American feminist movement may be the single most corrupt movement in the world. It’s more corrupt than the government of Equatorial Guinea. It’s more corrupt than the World Health Organization. There is nothing more corrupt than institutional feminism,” he contended.
“If you want proof, look no further than Senator Kirsten Gillibrand of New York. Two years ago, Gillibrand wanted Kavanaugh’s life and family destroyed. He was guilty, she said, she could feel it,” Carlson continued, referring to the Democrat’s treatment of then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh in 2018 when she staunchly defended his accuser, Christine Blasey Ford.
“Her account is credible and I believe her,” Gillibrand said in a montage of video clips from the time.
“She spoke her truth so bravely, so strongly, so honestly and we believed her,” she said in another clip. “Judge Kavanaugh has not asked to have the FBI review these claims. Is that the reaction of an innocent person? It is not.”
“Has there ever been, in the last 235 years, a dumber person to serve in the United States Senate?” Carlson wondered. “Probably not.”
“Her argument was that Kavanaugh has not demanded that the FBI forensically go through his entire life. He doesn’t appear to trust the FBI, therefore, he must be guilty,” Carlson added mockingly before airing a video clip of Gillibrand’s response to Reade’s accusation against Biden.
“She has come forward, she has spoken, and they’ve done an investigation in several outlets,” the New York lawmaker said in an interview Tuesday. “Those investigations, Vice President Biden has called for himself and…has vehemently denied these allegations and I support Vice President Biden.”
“Has Joe Biden begged the FBI to take a close look at his personal life over the past 50 years?” Carlson asked. “Oh, he hasn’t? He must be guilty. But that’s no longer her position.”
During a conference call with reporters on Tuesday, Gillibrand had reiterated her support of Biden, claiming he has “devoted his life to supporting women and he has vehemently denied this allegation.”
“We want to be clear, we have no idea if Joe Biden actually did this, we hope not,” Carlson continued on his show.
“But the point is, in American politics, it doesn’t matter,” he said.
“Here’s your takeaway: Institutional feminism, the so-called feminist movement, is fake. It was never about women or believing women. They don’t care about women, they care about power and that’s why Gillibrand was friends with Harvey Weinstein and [former President] Bill Clinton. That’s why she’s friends with Joe Biden now,” Carlson concluded.
“If you call yourself a male feminist and send enough checks to the Democratic Party, it doesn’t matter how many actual women you hurt,” he said. “That’s true.”
