Daily Caller co-founder Tucker Carlson took aim at President Joe Biden, whom he branded a “wannabe dictator,” in an episode of “Tucker on Twitter” released Thursday.

Carlson lambasted the president’s leadership in his fourth episode of the popular series, “Tucker on Twitter.” He called out the media and the Biden administration for punishing those who dare label the president with this title, including Fox News for reportedly firing an employee for labeling the president as a “wannabe dictator” in a chyron.

“If the banner on Fox was false, why the hysteria?” Carlson said. “Lies don’t seem to bother anyone anymore. If some cable news producer had called Joe Biden a genius or accused him of being secretly Sudanese, would anyone be yelling about it? Would Fox News have apologized for it? Probably not. But calling Joe Biden a wannabe dictator, that stung. So you’ve got to wonder, if you’re being honest with yourself, is Joe Biden a wannabe dictator?”

The Daily Caller co-founder aired a segment of White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre dodging a question about Fox News’ chyron at Wednesday’s press briefing.

“Of course Joe Biden’s not a wannabe dictator,” Carlson said apparently imitating Jean-Pierre. “Just because he’s trying to put the other candidate in prison for the rest of his life for a crime he himself committed, doesn’t mean he has a totalitarian impulse, come on, that’s absurd. It takes a lot more than jailing your political rivals to earn the title ‘wannabe dictator.’ That’s the consensus in Washington tonight.”

Carlson said all “wannabe dictators” make large profits despite their citizens “literally living in tents on the street.” They further attempt to disarm anyone who disagrees with them, but allow their friends to remain armed, he said.

“But in the end, the main reason you know Joe Biden is not a wannabe dictator is because he just does not fit the profile as a man. Dictators have that look, you know one when you see one,” Carlson continued. “Dictators build cults of personality around themselves and they use those cults to deny the glaringly obvious.” (RELATED: ‘Curiosity Is The Gravest Crime’: Tucker Carlson Returns And Tears Media To Shreds For Ukraine Coverage)

Carlson implied the corporate media would protect Biden for mistaking his wife for his sister or being unable to complete a sentence. He compared the media’s treatment of Biden to former North Korean dictator Kim Il-Sung’s large, “grotesque” tumor on the back of his head, which the North Korean media ignored.

He said Biden has the family to mirror a dictator, referencing his son, Hunter, and his many scandals, plus his brother, James, making money off of his name or his wife, Jill, calling herself a doctor.

“And by the way, if Joe Biden was a wannabe dictator he’d have the family to match. All dictators do … He doesn’t have weird sex scandals at the heart of his family that no one in the media will ever talk about,” Carlson said, showing a picture of a shirtless Hunter Biden. “He doesn’t have a ne’er-do-well former nightclub-owning brother who’s made a living for 30 years by being related to him, not at all. That’s dictator stuff.”

“Joe Biden doesn’t award ridiculous, inflated titles to his relatives that the media are then required to take seriously. He doesn’t call people ‘doctor’ who didn’t go to medical school and then force you to nod along like it’s real when everyone knows it isn’t.”

The president this week said gender-confused children are “our children,” leading Carlson to warn the rhetoric is dictator behavior.

“You share your children with Joe Biden, evenly, right down the middle with alternating weekends,” he said. “You’ve got joint custody with Joe Biden and you can thank heaven that you do. A nation is like a family, every family has a head, a father, that’s Joe Biden. Our nation’s father. And this, ladies and gentlemen, is now his fatherland. Just don’t call it a dictatorship or we’ll have to issue a statement disavowing you.”

The former Fox News anchor responded to the indictment of former President Donald Trump in his previous episode, referring to it as “total destruction” to the justice system in America. (RELATED: ‘Total Destruction Of The American Justice System’: Tucker Carlson Responds To Trump Indictment)

Carlson is currently in a legal fight with Fox News after the network accused him of breaching their contract. The legal agreement allegedly prevents Carlson from working until the contract’s expiration, leading Fox News to reportedly send Carlson a “cease and desist” letter last week in an attempt to prevent him from continuing his Twitter series.

Carlson’s legal team defended his First Amendment right to openly express his opinions on social media and accused Fox News of breaching their contract.
