Over the weekend, Senator Tammy Duckworth (D-IL) said that she was open to hearing arguments about statues of George Washington being torn down.

Fox News Tucker Carlson said that Duckworth and other Democrats that agree with her “hate America.”
Which set the media and Democrats into a predictable tirade, CNN’s Oliver Darcy claimed that Carlson crossed the like because Duckworth was a veteran and lost her legs.
Seriously can’t imagine ever having the nerve to call a double amputee Purple Heart recipient a “coward.” Just next level stuff.

However, Carlson doubled down and said, “We have every right to fight to preserve our nation, heritage and culture.
“When vandals like Tammy Duckworth and Ilhan Omar tell us that we’re not allowed to question their patriotism, as they scream about how horrible this country is, we have every right to laugh in their faces.”
That wasn’t all, he exposed Duckworth covering up abuse in VA hospitals.

Amidst all of this, Biden is – or maybe was – vetting Duckworth to be a potential running mate and entered the fray.
“Tucker Carlson and his colleagues who traffic in hate speech masquerading as journalism are accomplices to Donald Trump’s perverse mission to use division and bitterness to tear this country apart,” said Biden campaign spokesman T.J. Ducklo.
“It is the polar opposite of what Joe Biden stands for, and exactly what he means when he talks about a battle for the soul of America.”
During a virtual fundraiser, Biden attacked President Trump and Tucker Carlson.
“I can’t tell you how I felt today when I heard the President of the United States Donald Trump questioning your[Duckworth] patriotism,’ Biden said.
“I found it virtually disgusting, sickening. I know you can handle yourself. I said, I’m glad I wasn’t standing next to him. You said you can handle yourself. You already have. You’ve done that.”
With that response, Biden and his campaign just gave President Trump and Carlson a gift, they sided with a woman who wants to tear down America.
Right now, Carlson is the most-watched cable news host in the country and there is a reason for that, people agree with him, and not all those people that watch his show are Republican.
With Carlson exposing Duckworth it forced the Biden campaign to side with someone who admits they are ok with statues being torn down and that is something Biden said only last week he doesn’t agree with.
President Trump can continue to hammer away at Biden for supporting leftwing extremists who are rioting, vandalizing, and trying to tear down America.
Also, the scuffle has once again disrupted Biden trying to vet a woman to be his running mate after what Carlson exposed Tuesday night she is out of the running.
