Fox News host Tucker Carlson wound up indicting both President Donald Trump and his own network Monday evening when he insisted that Americans need to “stop lying” about “everything that matters.” And he also got hit with a massive dose of social media karma for daring to address anyone on the issue of being dishonest.
Carlson began his discussion of what he called the gulf between “elites” and social media over the result of the 2020 presidential election, which Trump continues to insist was tainted by “irregularities,” leading the Fox host to declare:
“How do we bring the country together? How do we calm things down? How do we make an America you want to live in? And the only answer, the only solution, is honesty. Let’s all stop lying. Lying about everything that matters. Everyday of our lives. That’s what we’re doing now. Have you noticed? How many times did you lie today cause you had to? Let’s repeal our national dishonesty mandate.”
Tucker: “How do we fix it and bring the country together? How do we make in America you want to live in? The only answer, the only solution is honesty. Let’s all stop lying.”

Really, Tucker? Dishonesty? You’re going to lecture us on lying and a lack of honesty when for the past four years you and others at your network have gleefully embraced the “alternative facts” and BS that emanates from the Trump administration on a daily basis? That’s rich. Not to mention hypocritical and downright laughable.
Since he took office on January 20, 2017, Donald Trump has told over 22,000 lies, according to the Washington Post, and he continues to belch out falsehoods about the election he clearly lost.
Americans quickly slapped Carlson down in grand fashion:
You first, Tucker.

Start by stating the widespread voting fraud conspiracy hoax is just that. Also an insult to election officials and poll workers (mostly volunteers) of both Parties. They would all have to be in cahoots in order for this hoax to be anything else

I may never be able to stop laughing. This is possibly the joke of the century. I did not know that on top of being an a-1 jerk Tucker was also a comedian.
