Fox News’ Tucker Carlson called out CNN’s Brian Stelter Tuesday over his coverage of First Lady Melania Trump.
“You probably heard that Melania Trump had a kidney operation last month–that kind of thing happens to 48-year-olds, even famous ones. She took a few weeks to recover, stayed off TV, didn’t give any speeches, all pretty typical for someone who just got out of the hospital,” The Daily Caller co-founder said.
“But over at CNN, they were not buying that story. They are proud journalists at CNN, self-consciously proud, and if there’s one thing they knew for certain, one thing that was drummed into them at the top-shelf journalism schools they attended, it’s that Republican first ladies lie a lot and are evil and for the sake of civilization, must be destroyed. So CNN did not buy a word of that, and the network assigned their most dogged journalist to crack the case, the squeaky but persistent Brian Stelter…” (RELATED: ‘I Don’t Want To Explode On TV…’ — Tucker ENDS Segment With Dem Congressman When He Accuses Him Of Working For Russia)
Tucker then played a clip of Stelter saying, “One thing that the president and the White House have been quiet about is Melania Trump and her status. The last time we caught a glimpse of her was on May 10th, 24 days, more than three weeks. There’s been questions about her surgery, her time at Walter Reed and now her invisibility.”
“Questions about her surgery? Questions about her time at Walter Reed? What questions exactly? Who’s asking those questions? Brian Stelter didn’t say, because he couldn’t say. Those are not real questions and this is not reporting, it’s a passive-aggressive attack. CNN’s real point was that Melania Trump is a liar and that she’s doing something immoral. She must be, look who she is married to.” (RELATED: ‘It’s Just Unbelievable’: Jeff Sessions Lays Down The Law With Tucker [VIDEO])
