Fox News host Tucker Carlson called out CNN Thursday night for their divisive and racially inflammatory coverage of the recent NFL controversy.
The Daily Caller co-founder played a clip of CNN airing divisive and “horrifying” commentary on President Trump criticizing NFL players who kneel during the national anthem.
Carlson said, “Dogs? Who said anything about dogs? Nobody did, but it doesn’t matter. The image is horrifying–and that’s the point. You can’t turn away from that.”
“Now do you hate and fear your neighbor a little more by the end of that segment? Of course you do. Imagine millions of people watching that kind of thing all day long,” he said.
Tucker characterized the NFL players who knelt during the anthem as “pampered millionaires” Monday. (RELATED: Tucker Goes Off On ‘DISGUSTING’ NFL Protesters: ‘Pampered Millionaires’ Giving The Finger To America)
“Now, the sight of pampered millionaires giving the rhetorical finger to the country that made them rich is obviously disgusting, so it was no surprise that in stadiums across America fans booed when they saw this,” he said.
