Former Fox News host and founder of Blaze TV ripped Democrats for once again claiming that Russia will ‘meddle’ in the 2020 election to help President Donald Trump while ignoring that China has “purchased” former Vice President Joe Biden, the party’s presumptive presidential nominee.

In an interview with Tucker Carlson, Beck noted that circa 2014 he was ignored when he began warning that Moscow would attempt to influence upcoming U.S. elections, but now that seems to be all Democrats are talking about.

“I’m living in an ‘Alice in Wonderland’ world where I think, ‘If I drink that, then I get smaller. I eat something, I get larger,'” Beck said.

“This is a completely upside-down world where what they are saying is shocking: Russia might try to interfere in our election, which is weird because … I was reporting that in 2014 and nobody would listen, they didn’t care,” the Blaze TV founder and daily talk radio host continued.

“[They are acting like] China is this pious little country over there [saying] ‘Well, sure, we would rather have the guy that we have already purchased in Joe Biden, but we would never do anything nefarious at all,’” Beck continued. “This is insane.”

Last year, amid reports that Biden’s son, Hunter, signed a $1 billion private equity deal with a subsidiary of the Bank of China, President Trump told Fox News host Steve Hilton that the former vice president should be investigated over potential illicit ties to Beijing.

“It’s a disgrace. And then he says China’s not a competitor of ours. China is a massive competitor of ours. They want to take over the world,” the president said.

As for the Democrats’ renewed ‘Trump-Russia collusion’ suggestions, Carlson asked Beck who “they hope to sway” with it.

“Morons? Really, morons,” Beck said, as Carlson grinned and nodded in agreement. Democrats “have all been bought and purchased in the media.”

Beck went on to question why Democrats’ repeat claims about Russia should be believed.

“Why would we listen to a group of people who, I think in Iowa, are still counting the ballots for the primary,” Beck said, a reference to the Democrats’ glitchy February primary, “who are literally still counting the ballots … in the New York primary.

Beck went on to recount additional mail-in ballot disasters in recent days including 500,000 ballots sent out incorrectly in Virginia and tens of thousands of ballots declared invalid in the controversial New York primary, which handed incumbent Democratic Rep. Carolyn Maloney a victory over a former Obama staffer.

“You don’t have trustworthy machines to do it,” Beck said — referencing the glitchy electronics Democrats used in Iowa — “now you want to make sure that everybody’s voting by mail, and you also know, we all know, that Russia and China, hell, I think England might be a part of it at this point.

“They’re all trying to create chaos,” The Blaze founder added. “We’re not serious about fixing this at all. No one is.”

Beck went on to praise Tucker for his work on reporting tough stories.

“I thank God every day that you are on television,” the former Fox News host said. “I think you are the only person in mainstream media that is on it every night and people can trust, and I thank you for all of your hard work and research and the guts that it takes to do this every single day. Thank you.”

During a press conference on Monday, President Trump was asked about potential Russian election meddling. After reminding the reporter that U.S. intelligence officials also pointed out that China and Iran were likely to interfere as well, he said Democrat election “meddling” via widespread mail-in balloting was his bigger concern.

“I’ll tell you who’s meddling in our election. The Democrats are meddling by wanting and insisting on sending mail-in ballots where there’s corruption all over the place,” he said.

“If you check what happened in New York, a small, relatively small race, with Carolyn Maloney. They declared her the winner, and they have no idea who won. And the person, her opponent, is very angry,” he added.
