Nicely done by Tucker.
Fox’s Tucker Carlson took a swipe at the NAACP during a segment tonight over potential next Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
Carlson clashed with Roll Call columnist Jonathan Allen over his piece on why the Senate should reject Sessions.
Carlson told Allen his column was a smear and “total hack job,” pressing him for examples of racism on Sessions’ part.
Allen pointed to comments Sessions got in trouble for when he was up for a judgeship decades ago, his recent remarks on the Confederate flag, and how he once called the NAACP “un-American” because they were “trying to force civil rights down the throats of people.”
Carlson responded, “I think the NAACP is a totally discredited group. Does that make me a racist?”
He continued to confront Allen for saying Sessions is basically on the “ideological fringe.”
