Fox News host Tucker Carlson hammered a “bitterly partisan” and “frail” President Joe Biden for immediately going on air to call for gun control, wasting no time in “desecrating” the memories of 19 children and two teachers in Texas after a gunman went on a shooting spree at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde.
The horrific incident occurred on Tuesday. Biden along with a slew of other Democrats pounced on the news of 18-year-old Salvador Ramos going on a rampage with a handgun and possibly a rifle. He slaughtered students and teachers at the school after he allegedly murdered his grandmother, according to authorities. Ramos was also killed in the exchange of gunfire with police. He wounded at least two officers before he was taken down, according to ABC News.
“The President of the United States. Frail, confused, bitterly partisan, desecrating the memory of recently murdered children with tired talking points of the Democratic Party. Dividing the country in a moment of deep pain, rather than uniting. His voice rising, amplified only as he repeats the talking points he repeated for over 35 years in the Senate. Partisan politics being the only thing that animates him. Unfit for leadership of this country,” Carlson stated following Biden’s scripted and timed comments given after the massacre.
The president gave a slurred, angry speech that appeared highly politicized to many watching in an apparent effort to not let the emergency go to waste. He described the feeling of losing a child as having “a piece of your soul being ripped away” and called on Americans to pray for the families. He urged the nation to “stand up to the gun lobby” and impose “common-sense gun laws.”
Biden had a chance to unite the country in our mourning of the lost innocent children but instead he rambled about the gun lobby, attacked Republicans, and wandered off the stage. We are being led by an incompetent, incoherent fool who also happens to be a very bad man.

“The idea that an 18-year-old kid can walk into a gun store and buy two assault weapons is just wrong,” Biden proclaimed. “What’s in God’s name do you need an assault weapon for, except to kill someone?”
“These kinds of mass shootings never happen with the kind of frequency they happen in America, why?” he railed. “Why are we willing to live with this kind of carnage? Why do we keep letting this happen? Where in God’s name is our backbone to have the courage to deal with and stand up to the lobbies. It’s time to turn this pain into action.”
“We can do so much more. We have to do more. Our prayer tonight for those parents lying in bed and trying to figure out will I be able to sleep again? What do I say to my other children? What happens tomorrow? May God bless the loss of innocent life on this sad day, and may the Lord be near the brokenhearted and save those crushed in spirit because they are going to need a lot of help,” the president intoned.

“Fox & Friends Weekend” host Will Cain joined Carlson on his show to discuss Biden’s opportunistic take on the tragedy.
“What a moment this would’ve been if he had stopped a sentence in and said ‘we’re gonna pray for these families and let’s let this marinate for a minute. Let’s stand respectfully before a tragedy.’ And Joe Biden has lived tragedy so he can say that with some credibility. He moved immediately into some DNC rant on a cue card. That’s the president?” Carlson asked while discussing Biden’s remarks with Cain.
“To stand before the image of murdered children, and your first impulse is, I can be more powerful if only I leverage this in the right way,” Carlson angrily remarked. “I am in shock having seen the president of the United States call for more power for himself. That is his answer?”
Democrats wasted no time in making hay over the tragedy:

Listen, I'm full of sadness and fury right now. That's what you're seeing here.
But I'm also determined. And pragmatic. If there is a single of my GOP colleagues who is moved to action by what happened today, I am ready to work with you. I am ready to compromise. To save lives. https://t.co/vFnFaNHiPA

It’s long past time for action, any kind of action. And it’s another tragedy—a quieter but no less tragic one—for families to wait another day.
