In the aftermath of Trump's electoral loss, I have been sporting a perpetual Schadenboner, and perhaps the most delicious part of it is the internecine fighting that has broken out among right-wingers. A Night of Long Knives is a-brewin', and it looks like frozen food heir Tucker Carlson is going to get carved up like a turkey destined for a TV dinner. Carlson, who is the Fox 'pundit' most beloved by white supremacists, made the fatal mistake of criticizing last best MAGA hope Sidney Powell by pressing her for evidence of voter fraud. BIG MISTAKE! Now the Donald Dead Enders are proclaiming that Tuck is a cuck, Even flat-out neo-Nazis are rejecting the one Fox figure they thought was one of their own.
It wasn't so long ago when Republicans were touting Tuck as a 2024 presidential candidate... he's an authoritarian like Trump, and probably even more racist, but he is smarter and a better speaker. He would have been a lot more dangerous than Trump, able to keep a lid on the bad stuff a lot better. Now, he's quickly becoming yet another Emmanuel Goldstein for the far-right, a public enemy in a two-minutes hate that goes on for years. The next Republican primary is going to be a disturbing spectacle, to say the least.
