If you didn’t watch Daily Caller co-founder and Fox News host Tucker Carlson’s speech Friday at the Family Leadership Summit in Iowa, you missed a moment in modern history.
Shortly after Tucker gave one of the most empowering speeches in recent history, leftist in the media melted down in fear that the conservative voice of America might run for president in 2024. If you can’t possibly fathom how Tucker could have a shot at the highest office in the world, I implore you to stream the entire 40-minute keynote on Fox Nation immediately.
Tucker Carlson, who has flatly said he doesn’t want to run in 2024, opens by citing spending 2000 in Iowa w/ his then-young child and mentioning he may have done the “full Grassley” … he’s also talking up his connections to Iowa, which is, well, very #2024 pic.twitter.com/kg84IEW0f6

Even before the keynote address, at least one Politico op-ed writer was so concerned about Tucker running that she suggested Jon Stewart run for the Democrat ticket instead of President Joe Biden. Of course, Tucker has emphatically denied that he has any intention of running for office … which is exactly what someone secretly running for office would say!
“Tucker Goes To Iowa” was positioned almost like a candidate’s announcement speech. The banner, the glitz, the glamor, the hype, the huge audience in one of the most important swing states in the nation: Tucker had it all on Friday night. His speech was funny, endearing, honest, and most importantly, it was empowering as heck. It was everything you could want from a potential presidential candidate.

Everything he said in his speech on Friday is inherently true. The part that struck me, validating everything I’ve chosen to evolve in my political mindset from the once far-leftist socialist I was in my youth to now, was when he said “you can decide who represents you and on the basis of what issues.” (RELATED: A Host Of Cartoonish Bond Villains Are Deciding Your Fate From The Swiss Alps)
Politicians are “very simple organisms,” he quipped. All they want to do is “win elections.” He argued that today’s politicians are “promoting the idea that your family is worthless compared to loyalty to your employer and a political party.”
He called the message “totalitarian,” and reinforced the importance of “family” and showing “beauty” to each other. How could anyone argue against such a uniting sentiment? How could anyone argue against their own power in deciding elections?
Could it be that Tucker Carlson will be the man to unite Americans under a platform of data, common sense and their own voices? Maybe. Either that, or it’s an epic troll.
If Tucker doesn’t run in 2024, just the panic attack he gave the liberal media elites was enough to cement him as the honorary President of the United States in my book. It’s kind of beautiful to watch one man speak the truth and scare those trying to destroy the greatest nation on Earth.
