In the latest episode of his new Twitter show, former Fox News host Tucker Carlson put the permanent Washington political establishment on blast over its treatment of former President Donald Trump.
"Trump is the one guy with an actual shot at becoming president who dissents from Washington's longstanding pointless war agenda," asserted Carlson. "And for that, that one fact, they're trying to take Trump out before you can vote for him."
Carlson played a clip of the moment that the political establishment decided Trump will be imprisoned, showing a moment from the 2016 presidential primary debates in Greenville, South Carolina. At the time, then-candidate Trump called out the neoconservative establishment over the state-sponsored lies of weapons of mass destruction being discovered in Iraq, which was used to justify an American invasion of the middle eastern nation.
"We should have never been in Iraq," Trump said from the debate stage, as Jeb Bush smirked. "We have destabilized the Middle East. They lied, okay said there were weapons of mass destruction that were done and they knew there were none. There were no weapons of mass destruction."
During his episode, Carlson took numerous jabs at "permanent Washington." He noted that its initiatives command "trillion dollar price tags," and that those policies have made Washington, DC's surrounding counties "the richest suburbs in the world."
He also took aim at Republican politicians that many in the Trump base consider to be disloyal, including former Vice President Mike Pence, former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley, former director of the Central Intelligence Agency and then Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), who he says "all called Trump visionary genius up until the moment he lost power," soon thereafter revealing their true intentions, "the neocon war agenda."
Carlson then showed a clip of Pompeo putting Trump on blast over his allegations of mishandling classified documents, and noted that the former Trump admin official "undermined Trump's often stated commitment to peace and non intervention abroad at every turn."
"His every waking hour was devoted to fomenting war in some faraway foreign country or other. Iran, Syria, Russia, North Korea, the list goes on."
The former Fox News host argued that the political indictments of Trump represent an American "caste system," one in which those in the club get a free pass while others are relentlessly persecuted.
"That's the point, and you're the untouchable in this hierarchy," Carlson explained. "Mike Pompeo knows that everybody who works in Washington knows that."
"How many secret documents do you think Dick Cheney took home with him? When he was running the Iraq War?" Carlson then asked, before adding, "We'll never know the answer because there is no chance Dick Cheney will ever be investigated or staffers will be told to wear wires in his presence."
"Dick Cheney is a neocon, Trump is not," he said. "Dick Cheney supports war with Russia, Trump does not. That's the difference."
