Tucker Carlson Torches Lindsey Graham, Warns GOP Candidates to Disavow Him Ahead of Midterms


Tucker Carlson repeatedly stated that he doesn’t like Sen. Lindsey Graham’s (R-S.C.) politics. On Friday night’s heated show, Carlson completely destroyed “Lady G”. He also broadcast a clear and concise campaign strategy suggestion to Republican candidates who are vying for victory in November.

Carlson stated that the long-predicted “red wave” in November was not certain and pointed out several examples of Republicans imitating Graham-like talking points on issues related to Ukraine and Russia as to what to avoid doing in the next weeks.

Carlson doubled down and advised GOP candidates to concentrate on issues at the kitchen table, not Russian aggression or Ukrainian defense issues as Warhawk Graham does.

Carlson stated in his Friday night opener, “Your job is not to make fun or disavow Lindsey Graham.” “Your job isn’t to imitate Lindsey Graham or steal his talking points. You will lose if you try to emulate Lindsey Graham, which the losing candidates did.”

He showed clips of the South Carolina senator insisting on more American assistance to Ukraine. Graham stated in one clip, “The question is: ‘Can we be more?’ or ‘Should we be doing more?’ He has been a vocal advocate for increased military aid to Ukraine. However, he provoked backlash when he suggested that the Russians assassinate Vladimir Putin.

Carlson pointed out Republican Marc Molinaro who lost a special election in New York’s 19th Congressional District, to his Dem opponent, Pat Ryan.

The Hill noted Carlson’s explanation of the race that caused Molinaro to suffer:

Carlson stated that Molinaro is the Dutchess County executive, which includes the 19th District. He told the county office building to lighten its facade with Ukraine’s colors in February. He said that Molinaro sent fundraising emails to voters in February to inform them of the need for more aggression against Russia and that Biden is weak regarding this issue.

Fox News host said that while he felt sorry for the Ukrainian people, Americans also have problems and that Republican candidates should focus on issues directly affecting everyday Americans as they head into November.

These issues include the border migration crisis, record-setting crime spikes, insane inflation, and skyrocketing gas and grocery prices to name just a few.

Carlson played a clip from Republican Joe Kent who won his Washington primary as a challenger. He talked about the consequences of blindly supporting the war in Ukraine — which is the exact opposite of Molinaro.

Tucker Carlson believes that prioritizing American issues in November is the key to a “red wave” victory. Nothing less.

Carlson stated that if more Republicans in November repeat what Joe Kent said, they would win. If they speak about issues that people care about, and that have relevance to their lives, they would win.

He said, “That’s how we won those school board seats here in Florida.” They weren’t talking to Ukraine. They were addressing the issues that matter most to Florida voters: safety and happiness for families, as well as the rights of parents to choose what their children learn at school. This message wins.

The clip was reacted to by Twitter users. Many agreed with Fox’s host.

“@TuckerCarlson is doing a brilliant job right now telling Republicans if they don’t stop with the rino ‘we stand with Ukraine’ Lindsey Graham garbage, the GOP will go down on November 8th the way Ukraine loving softie Mark Molinaro went down in New York state in recent days,” one Twitter user wrote.

Radical progressives are scaring voters into mobilizing for Nov. Mostly by lying about what might happen in future Supreme Court rulings on contraception, gay marriage, and other social issues. GOP candidates would be smart to follow Carlson’s wise advice.
