Tucker Carlson Goes After Michelle Obama: Portrayed Herself as a ‘Victim’ in Speech, She Wants You to ‘Shut Up and Accept Her Dominion Over You’


Tucker Carlson opened his show Tuesday mocking the first night of the DNC convention, particularly Michelle Obama’s speech and the media reaction to it.

Carlson said if you enjoy “mandatory corporate diversity seminars… you must have loved” the convention, because of “the preachy self-righteousness, the condescension, the shameless lying, the strange mixture of guilt and aggression.”

He swiped at some other speakers, especially Andrew Cuomo talking about his state’s coronavirus response despite the criticism he has received. He ripped Cuomo for the “dishonesty’ in his speech and said Democrats now try to “browbeat you into accepting their program [and] if you don’t like their program, it’s your fault. You are the bad guy.”

Carlson went on to say that the former First Lady “could teach a masterclass in this mode of communication,” telling viewers, “What she wanted you to know last night was that she was still a victim, she never one who looks like her, so shut up and accept her dominion over you.”

He played the clip of Obama saying, “Here at home, as George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and a never ending list of innocent people of color continue to be murdered, stating the simple fact that a black life matters is still met with derision from the nation’s highest office.”

Carlson said, “What you just heard was a total and complete crock. A never-ending list of innocent people of color continue to be murdered? That’s what Michelle Obama told us. Well, no. So for this to there have been a total of eight unarmed black man killed by police in this country. Not a never ending list.”

He went on to mock the media praise of Obama’s speech and said, “You probably still think of the left as secular, but not anymore. They are fervent religious fanatics. Michelle Obama is their L. Ron Hubbard. Everything she does is good by definition. She’ss the most beautiful, the smartest, the wisest. If Michelle Obama played golf, she would shoot an 18 every time. In the words of Van Jones, her speech last night was extraordinary. Even though, as you know if you saw it, it was exactly the opposite of that. The speech was ordinary. It was totally pedestrian, like almost everything Michelle Obama says.”
