Her allegations are simply not believable.
 
2020-05-07 11:31:39 AM  
And what about allegations from Heidi Cloom, Elle MacFearson, Kate Mausse, and Cindy Crawferd?
 
2020-05-07 12:17:10 PM  
Yeah.

Tucker Carlson hates women & is a self-loathing piece of crap. Why is this a contradiction of terms?

Seconded on DFT.

Ermagherd you BIDENBROS have such double standards!!! How can you not believe Christine O'Donnell's accusation?
Just because Sleepy Joe wasn't actually present, doesn't mean he couldn't have sexually harassed her niece in 2007 (or 2008?) when she was 13 years old!
 
2020-05-07 4:11:46 PM  
He's doing this so he can deflect criticism from the actually credible cases against Trump.  If Trump had a clean record he'd be screaming about Reade from the rooftops.

What's his angle?

Straight Outta Wells Branch: Tucker Carlson hates women & is a self-loathing piece of crap. Why is this a contradiction of terms?


I'm sure he just meant that she should've waited until October anyway. Too soon!

Tucker said the f-word on Fox and they didn't bleep him?
 
2020-05-07 4:15:07 PM  
Carlson doesn't care. He's doing this to cast doubt on women so he can be "consistent" when defending Trump.

Also he just wants to make the divisions in the liberal/left side of the spectrum larger with this.
 
2020-05-07 4:15:19 PM  
I will never forgive Cindy Crawford's allegations about our SUPPOSED affair and all my so called "kinky" requests...  Ruined my marriage... And ended my career managing the McDonald's off I-95.

He may think Biden is better for his bank account.

VisualiseThis: What's his angle?


My initial thought is that he's worried the Tara Reade thing will help to bring more exposure to the 20+ women accusing Mr "Grab Them By The Pussy" of sexual assault.
 
2020-05-07 4:16:51 PM  
I imagine Trump's lapdogs don't really want this case investigated.

First Hannity calls out the patriot assholes. Now this.

Is Fox starting to break up with Trump because they see the writing on the wall?

Bathe them and bring them before me so that I may hear their allegations.

It does seem to me that the people making the biggest stink about this are the BSABSVD2S folk instead of the die-hard Trumphumpers.

They see the writing on the lawsuits coming their way.
This is all Bread and Circuses to pretend they are "fair and balanced".

raius: He's doing this so he can deflect criticism from the actually credible cases against Trump.  If Trump had a clean record he'd be screaming about Reade from the rooftops.


His focus on "timing" is very important in this regard. Conservatives generally dismissed Dr. Ford's credible testimony, as well as Roy Moore's numerous accusers, because of the "timing." Unable to grasp how elevation of a man to one of the highest offices in the free world might compel victims who've remained silent to feel duty-bound to come forward.

Reade's allegations lack credibility for numerous reasons. That we're hearing about them in an election year isn't one of them. Their "timing" really only matters in her case because she changed her highly praising tone about Biden at roughly the same time she became a Sanders supporter. And even then, the timing matters less than the change of tone in the first place. She literally praised Biden for his work against sexual assault before she accused him of trumping her.

He's prolly worried conservatives will be more likely to abandon Trump for Biden if they believe Biden is also a sexual predator.

Someone has to be the "fair and balanced" person on every twenty seventh story. It was his turn to pretend to give a damn.

LL316: LarryDan43: VisualiseThis: What's his angle?

No, to "Trump almost certainly isn't going to win, so I (Tucker) am positioning myself to start sounding reasonable now, so I can start raking in the cash again once Biden takes office, when I'll start loudly opposing everything his administration does.  And that's when I (still Tucker) will start questioning why this wasn't investigated further".

The reasoning on the latter bit is that even Fox thinks that Trump is sunk at this point, so what's better for them?  Going down with a sinking shiat, or getting in place to try and torpedo the next Democratic administration?
 
2020-05-07 4:39:42 PM  
Again, Tucker Carlson is a bit different from the likes of Hannity, Dobbs, and Pirro. Those last three are the primary Trump fluffers--all they want to do is swallow as much of Trump's load as much as they possibly can in their lifetimes.

People like Tucker Carlson and Laura Ingraham are beholden mainly to white supremacists, because that is essentially what they are. When the Nazis turn on Trump (and right now they are just starting to), you will start to see a lot more criticism directed at him, from them.

Fox News is all about support of white supremacy. This includes support of Trump and GOP, for now, but if either of them waver, they will be cast aside.

Thoughts?
 
2020-05-07 4:42:07 PM  

youncasqua: before she accused him of trumping her.


There are going to be SO many alternate meanings of the verb "trump" in future dictionaries.

This is likely.

This is also Tucker's current attempt to have something - ONE thing -  where he's not a complete shill to point at when people point out just how in the tank he is for the GOP and Trump during the election cycle. That's how Republicans argue - if you say 1000 true facts and you screw up number 1001, then everything you said is wrong. "See? SEE?? You pointed out the 1000 times I took a complete hyperpartisan dump on Joe Biden, but I stood up for him over Tara Reade, didn't I? So you must be COMPLETELY WRONG about everything else! Back to the salt mines with you, libbie lib!"

He knows it's BS and has no traction because of covid. He's building cred for when he dumps on the next legit complainant of a GOP official and sexual misconduct allegations.

I'm wondering if this is a chicken-egg situation. Did the rubes love Trump from the beginning because they were all mostly closeted white supremacists, or did they love him because he pissed off the libs and then became white supremacists just to pwn the libs further? Either way, I'm sure for them it was money well spent.

I'll vote for Biden if he adds to his platform and amendment disqualifying candidates from government office if they are guilty of sexual misconduct.

But liberals are NPC soyboy beta cucks. Therefore Biden couldn't rape a woman because he's too much of a sissy to approach one.

Slappy Longballs: When the Nazis turn on Trump (and right now they are just starting to),


Where are you seeing this?

I'm seeing the goon squads express anger about the Covid shutdowns, but all their ire is being directed towards democratic governors.

Trump has played the whole "do the safe thing but not really" game so he can both claim he's taking the situation seriously and that he wants to open up the country, that way no matter how things pan out he can claim he did the smart thing.

The one time it looked like he was going to lose them was when he made some comments re: gun control. They started to turn, the NRA ramped up its atroturfing efforts and had meetings with him, and he hasn't talked about the issue since.

It's nothing as complex as that.  He's mad she won't go on his show to further spread the story, and this is him lashing out about it.

Trump had them at "they're sending us the rapists and the drug dealers".

The "he pisses off the libs" thing didn't start happening until the racist thing shot him to the top of the polls and the libs went from laughing "like he has a chance in a million of ever being President" to saying "oh shiat, there's a chance".

Tucker can't even spin this bullshiat. She changed her story too many times.
 
2020-05-07 5:21:56 PM  
Tucker is right.  The timing of the accusations are suspect.  Not to mention Tara's age at the time this allegedly happened.

The pieces just don't fit.
 
2020-05-07 5:22:48 PM  
The most important thing in all of this, that can be disputed by no one, is what the two accused candidates have said from their own mouths in response.

Biden: "The accusations aren't false. But women deserve to be heard. Conduct the full investigation and release any and all pertinent information."

Trump: "yeah right, look at her."

That ends the whole discussion. Anyone who BSAB's these two can fark right off.

If he goes against the gop party line occasionally, when it doesn't matter, has no effect or when he can then 'have his mind changed by new information,' it gives him an appearance of credibility.  See Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski.

I didn't watch, but here's a guess: He doesn't want Joe to be forced out of the nomination and replaced with a better candidate.
