Tucker Carlson recently pointed out the hypocrisy surrounding mainstream media’s coverage of the Justin Trudeau blackface scandal by comparing the way CNN’s Don Lemon handled the matter.
On Tucker Carlson Tonight on Fox News Tucker spent no time singling out CNN’s Don Lemon in a clip where it showed how the liberal Lemon host covered Trudeau’s apology by only redirecting the issue as a way to attack President Trump, Tucker even brought up an older clip from Oct 2018 of Don Lemon talking about the Kelly controversy.
“Megyn is 47 years old, she’s our age. There has never been a time in her 47 years that blackface has been acceptable… I wonder how much diversity she has on her staff. I don’t know, I’m not there but I would imagine there is not a lot,” “This is what people of the larger culture don’t understand about racism and about privilege.”
– Don Lemon
Now compare this to what Lemon said about the Prime Minister…
“He says he didn’t think it was racist at the time, now he knows better,”
“Think about it however you want to think about it. When someone apologizes, wow, we don’t often see that here. Especially a world leader who’s saying, ‘I should have known better and I’m sorry.’”
– Don Lemon
Double Standards Much?
Recently unless you have had your internet and TV turned off you would have seen that it was revealed that the Canadian prime minister was caught up in his own “blackface” scandal of which he attempted to apologize during a news conference in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Though Tucker Carlson (and nor did most of the right on the internet) buy this apology. As its more under the impression that Trudeau didn’t actually take responsibility but rather “transferred it” by blaming privilege.
“He’s moving responsibility for what he did from himself to the rest of us… it’s not a confession, it’s a justification and the only people dumb enough to buy it are the news media, of course. The dumbest people in the world,”
“Or could it be that because Justin Trudeau is a powerful leader on the left, he gets a pass no matter what he does? I think you know the answer,”
“What a difference a year makes… Megyn Kelly never wore blackface, she wouldn’t do that. She’s not Justin Trudeau,”
“She just made the mistake of not seeming quite offended enough in a TV segment about certain Halloween costumes.”

New Border wall in ‘smuggler’s gulch’ is working according to CBP agents
Justin De La Torre stated a steep, open canyon between San Diego and Tijuana has been used for decades by immigrants to smuggle drugs into the U.S. from Mexico.
“It has an anti-climb feature, it’s made of steel, it also has a concrete base that prevents digging from underneath, and now we’re able to control this area with the new infrastructure.”
According to California Border Patrol agents, new infrastructure in an area known as “smuggler’s gulch” is making a difference.
President Trump moved to replace the fencing along the San Diego border earlier this year as his administration sped up moves to build taller, stronger border reinforcement.
“This is a smart, strategic, see-through steel barrier — not just a simple concrete wall,”
said the president.
“It will be deployed in the areas identified by border agents as having the greatest need, and as these agents will tell you, where walls go up, illegal crossings go way down.”
Numerous wall construction projects are underway across the Southwest border, including projects in California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas. — CBP (@CBP) August 25, 2019
A pair of conservative columnists say Democrats have still not been held accountable for their antics during Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings.
In a recent radio interview with Breitbart, senior editor for The Federalist — Mollie Hemingway — put Democrat senators on blast for “willfully abandoning” Senate procedures to attack Kavanaugh. She singled out Senator Kamala Harris and Senator Corey Booker, saying they unfairly lobbed unsubstantiated accusations at the now Supreme Court justice and were never penalized for it.
Hemingway said not punishing politicians for slander during the confirmation hearing has allowed lasting damage to be done to Kavanaugh’s reputation:
“Damaging someone’s reputation is a real harm. We think of crime as being about actual acts of physical violence, but damage to a reputation causes real harm and it needs to be taken seriously, so that these things don’t happen again. Part of it is just about people being aware of what the left does with confirmation battles, but there also needs to be accountability.”
In a separate interview, her counterpart and chief counsel of the Judicial Crisis Network — Carrie Sevarino — doubled down on that stance. She said Democrats willingly peddled misinformation and false allegations to obstruct Kavanaugh’s confirmation.
Hemingway and Sevarino said the conduct of Democrats during the hearing is another example of how the party has fallen prey to the “politics of personal destruction.” The duo are currently on tour promoting their book “Justice on Trial,” which chronicles Kavanaugh’s contentious confirmation process.
