Fox News’ Tucker Carlson burst out laughing Tuesday when Democratic Rhode Island Rep. David Cicilline insisted his party is not pushing the Russian collusion narrative.
Cicilline claimed that Democrats are hyper-focused on the economy and that it is actually Republicans who won’t stop talking about Russia because they are trying to hide their alleged lack of accomplishments.
“On the one hand you’re sort of right, that it does help Republicans, but this is being driven 100 percent by the left and to say otherwise is dishonest,” Carlson, a co-founder of The Daily Caller, replied. “Part of you must feel shame for saying things that you know are not true.”
Nonetheless, Cicilline doubled down, asserting that “[Democrats] want this investigation to be completed!’
“You’re the one who talks about it all the time!” Cicilline added. “I’m happy to talk about the economic agenda of Democrats.”
Carlson couldn’t help but laugh as Cicilline continued to argue that Republicans are actually the ones responsible for pushing Russian collusion.
“I’m not even annoyed, I’m just amused by how ludicrous this is,” Carlson concluded.
