Tucker Carlson: Democrats Trying to ‘Crush’ Howard Schultz, But Heckler ‘Did Make Some Solid Points’


Fox News’ Tucker Carlson tonight said the Democrats are furious at Howard Schultz because he’s hurting their chances at reclaiming political power.

Carlson opened by saying “a pair of slick consultants somehow convinced Howard Schultz that he could be president” and showing the angry liberal reaction, including the heckler who called him an “egotistical billionaire asshole” and said he should “go back to Davos with the other billionaire elite.”

He also shared Mark Cuban‘s tweet as another way to look at “the Democratic hysteria” over Schultz:
