Written by B87FM on June 15, 2020
On Sunday evening, John Oliver had some phrases for Tucker Carlson, the Fox Information anchor who delivered a sarcastic rant expressing his outrage with an academic Sesame Avenue skit. “First, clearly, f*** off Tucker, you one-man house owner’s affiliation,” mentioned Oliver.
Within the skit, Elmo and his father Louie got here collectively to debate discrimination on the Coming Collectively: Standing As much as Racism particular. Carlson had an inexplicably sturdy opinion in opposition to the Elmo skit, which for Oliver posed the query of whether or not Carlson is pro-discrimination.
Here’s what Carlson mentioned on Fox Information that triggered Oliver’s response: “Acquired that, Bobby? America is a really unhealthy place and it’s your fault. So it doesn’t matter what occurs, it doesn’t matter what they do to you whenever you develop up, you don’t have any proper to complain.”
Oliver went off on Carlson on his present Final Week Tonight.
“And second, that unspecified ‘they’ in ‘what they do to you whenever you develop up’ is doing quite a lot of heavy lifting there. There’s mainly two choices for what that would imply,” mentioned Oliver. “One, that Tucker and his viewers have benefited from a racist system that renders any specs of who ‘they’ are pointless. Or two, that his present is a badly written piece of rubbish, so which is it Tucker? Are you a racist or are you a complete f***ing moron? The reply will be ― and certainly is ― each.”
