President Donald Trump has a theory for why Hollywood screwed up naming the winner of that final Oscar at last night's Academy Awards. 'I think they were focused so hard on politics that they didn't get the act together at the end,' Trump said today as he sat down with Breitbart News. Last night, veteran film stars Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway were tasked with announcing the Best Picture winner – and initially dropped the wrong name. Scroll down for video President Trump called the Oscars ceremony 'sad,' after Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway were given the wrong envelope and thus announced the wrong winner of Best Picture Beatty paused as he looked at the envelope that was given to him, rightly confused as it was for the winner of Best Actress, an award that had already been giv
It's been less than 12 hours since black queer love story Moonlight won best picture at the Academy Awards, and some viewers are already saying the victory was undeserved. On Monday morning's Fox & Friends, guest Tucker Carlson — the Fox News pundit Teen Vogue writer Lauren Duca called a "partisan hack" on live TV — said that Moonlight only won because of Hollywood's desire to make a political statement. "It was foregone," Carlson said. "You knew that Moonlight had to win because you knew what the film was about. And that's part of the problem with Hollywood. Tons of really talented people there, brilliant at making movies. But the second you feel a political imperative, it destroys your art. The second you feel like you need to elevate the country, you become overbearing and pomp
Tucker Carlson sparred with Hartford, Conn. Mayor Luke Bronin (D) over his decision to continue to designate his municipality a sanctuary city for illegal immigrants. Carlson, who noted he lived in the city for some time, said Hartford is facing $400 million in unfunded pension liabilities as well as possible teacher layoffs, and could be further affected if President Trump withholds its federal funding. Bronin said on "Tucker Carlson Tonight" that in the wake of Trump's order regarding illegal immigration, he asked his police chief for statistics of crimes committed by illegal immigrants. "The answer I got back was 'virtually none'," he said, adding that he will continue to "prioritize law enforcement efforts on those people who actually pose a risk." [embed]https://ww...
Fox News host Tucker Carlson invited a transgender woman onto his show Friday night ― and proceeded to insinuate that trans people are “faking” their identities to access federal funds. Lawyer Jillian Weiss, a transgender woman, appeared on the Friday edition of “Tucker Carlson Tonight” to discuss the Trump administration’s rescission of an Obama-era directive that ensured trans students could use the restroom corresponding with their gender identity in public schools. What she was met with instead were claims by Carlson that people could masquerade as transgender to get access to gender-specific restrooms, as well as insinuations that trans people are “faking” their gender identities to get access to the federal government’s “$11 billion [spent] every year on sex
Whiteboard Ban Tucker Carlson debated a Michigan State University student over the college's pending ban on whiteboards, after an offensive term was scrawled on one inside a dormitory. The Lansing, Mich. branch of the NAACP hailed the administration's decision as a victory for the school's black community. "Why not ban pens, keyboards, and other instruments of divergent opinions and just kind of suppress speech, and everyone will be happy?" Carlson asked Aaron Stephens, a student at MSU who supports the decision. On "Tucker Carlson Tonight," Stephens said the larger issue is that a student felt compelled to "intimidate somebody... based on a different identity." He said the ban itself is imperfect because it puts the blame on the "messaging" rather than the "message." ...
Yesterday, Connecticut’s governor, Dannel Malloy, made headlines by telling cops in his state they do not have to comply with the Donald Trump administration’s new requests to detain undocumented immigrants. (When current Vice President Mike Pence was the governor of Indiana, Malloy denounced him for rerouting refugee families from the state, so this isn’t very surprising.) On Fox News this evening, Tucker Carlson went head-to-head with Malloy. “The President can’t order us to do federal work,” the governor said. “Quite frankly, the federal government should do its own job and get it done.” Carlson and Malloy continued to butt heads over the economic condition of Connecticut, but Malloy was insistent that it’s possible for him to care about the economy and current immigration
Tucker Carlson was joined tonight by a civil rights leader who says that black males are disproportionately hurt by illegal immigration. Peter Kirsanow, a member of the U.S. Civil Rights Commission, explained that black males are more likely to experience competition from illegal immigrants. "It's Econ 101, Tucker. When you have an oversupply of labor, the price of labor is going to be depressed," Kirsanow said, adding that there's a striking oversupply of low-skill labor. He noted that this doesn't effect just black males, but all low-skilled American workers. He said that black males, however, are disproportionately concentrated in low-skill labor markets, which is also where the bulk of legal and illegal immigrants over the past 20 years are concentrated. "We're tal
Fox News host Tucker Carlson battled Tuesday with a protest organizer whose organization “Refuse Fascism” is attempting to drive President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence out of office because “the future of humanity and the planet” depend on it. “Humanity is facing an emergency,” Sunsara Taylor told Carlson. “Trump and Pence are operating out of Hitler’s playbook, only they have nuclear weapons.” Taylor continued to reiterate her comparison of Trump to Hitler, but Carlson wasn’t buying it. If Taylor really believed Trump was Hitler, then she would be committing acts of violence to stop him instead of appearing on his talk show, Carlson told her. Taylor responded by doubling down. “[Trump] is more dangerous than Hitler ever could have been,” she said, citing the
Tucker Carlson went on Fox & Friends this morning to explain that all the attention his segment on Sweden got this weekend, misses the point. “50 years of immigration policy is coming to flower in Eurpoe,” Carlson explained about the Friday segment, which was cited by Pres. Trump on Saturday, and has been torn apart by much of the media in both the U.S. and Sweden since. [embed]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sEeXd9b01uY[/embed] The Fox & Friends crew also turned the criticism of Trump’s remarks back on the media, saying “mainstream media went crazy about it,” before playing clips from this morning’s Good Morning America, Today show and CNN. “Look, the president ought to be precise in what he says, there should be no confusion about what he means,” said Carlson, add
MELBOURNE, United States—First Lady Melania Trump, usually a demure and soft-spoken presence at her husband’s side, broke with form Saturday, reciting the Lord’s Prayer before issuing a scathing rebuke of his enemies and her critics at a campaign-style stop in Florida. Preceding her husband on the dais at a rally in the city of Melbourne, the first lady started her remarks with the words “let us pray,” “Our Father, who art in Heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy Kingdom come, thy will be done, on Earth as it is in Heaven,” Mrs Trump read from the lectern, wrapping up the roughly half-minute-long prayer with an “Amen.” [embed]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qdX3J9wFybI[/embed] MELBOURNE, United States—First Lady Melania Trump, usually a demure and soft-spoken presence
