Clay Travis: ‘The more Biden talks, the more Republicans win … the idiocy reveals itself’

“The Idiocy Reveals Itself”

That was Clay Travis Thursday night on “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” explaining the good news to Republicans. With open glee, Travis and Carlson compared notes on the inverse effects of Democrats’ words on the audience they speak past – the audience between the coasts.

To start the dialog, Carlson revisited Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s reaction to Texas Governor Greg Abbott’s decision to send illegal migrants to Chicago.

“This week the governor of Texas decided to test Lori Lightfoot’s commitment to racism. He began transporting illegal aliens from the border in Texas all the way to Chicago,” Carlson began.

“And why wouldn’t he do that? Lori Lightfoot has said emphatically she wants them in her city. She’s not a racist. You’re the racist. So, these migrants showed up. How did Lori Lightfoot respond? Well, Lori Lightfoot’s administration declared that this plan is… racist,” said an openly sardonic Carlson. “So, it’s racist NOT to want illegal aliens in your city, and it’s racist when people send them.”

He went on to claim that the effect of her words was the opposite of what she intended. Apparently, she isn’t aware of the attendant hypocrisy whenever she boldly proclaims her truth. Carlson crowed that she is accidentally creating members of the opposition party. No one creates a counter-revolution better than the one who is so brazen in her condescension and authoritarianism.

“This is really a recruitment experience,” said Carlson. “No one in the history of politics has created, single-handedly, more right-wingers than Lori Lightfoot.”

“Imagine her in her new position in the Biden Administration screaming on NPR every morning… to tell you whether she’s decided whether you can use your electric car today or not,” he continued. “If there is anything that will provoke a counter-revolution, it’s that. Lori Lightfoot may have genocidal impulses… but like the rest of our leaders she is too stupid to pull them off.”

Carlson then engaged talk show personality Clay Travis, co-host of the Clay Travis and Buck Sexton Show, on the matter. Travis identified the pattern immediately, invoking the haplessness of Biden’s communication as evidence that the damage is system-wide in the Democratic Party, starting at the top.

“Every time Joe Biden talks, Tucker, it’s the best possible advertisement for anyone who has a functional brain, because when they put him on vacation for like a month, his approval ratings started to go up. And then as soon as he started talking, his approval ratings came right back down,” said Travis.

Viewers of “Tucker Carlson Tonight” can easily connect the dots to Hillary Clinton in 2016. Clinton was a star, a juggernaut, even – as long as she was invisible. But whenever she stumbled out of an SUV to make a public appearance, she became a liability, a deplorable embarrassment. Her approval ratings were always in inverse proportion to her visibility.

For Carlson’s viewers, the interview with Travis was little more than uptempo jocularity to balance the heated reporting of more dire news at home and abroad. But it rang true.

“The more Biden talks, the more Republicans win,” said Travis. “The idiocy reveals itself.”

He went on to speculate about the atmosphere in college football stadiums all over the Heartland this fall.

“Do you know where the real heartbeat of America is right now? It’s in the Big Ten, it’s in the SEC, it’s in all these states where Joe Biden’s party is going to get its ass kicked, where everybody is chanting ‘Let’s Go Brandon’ in the stands all season long. I love it,” he added.

In an age of epically negative political campaigning, Democrats provide Republicans with more than they need.
