Tucker Carlson: ‘Herman Cain Is Not Qualified To Be President And We Are All Pretending He Is’

On Fox News’s Red Eye, Wednesday morning, The Daily Caller‘s Tucker Carlson made a blunt analysis on Herman Cain‘s abilities to govern as president.

“Come on, can we just stop pretending?” Carlson remarked. “I don’t know what happened with these women, the ‘he said, she said, she said, she said’ thing. He is not qualified to be president, and we are all pretending he is. He’s a nice guy. I know him, I like him. I think he’s a great guy. He would be a better president than the current president, but he can’t explain his own economic plan.”

“Isn’t that all we need — is somebody better than Obama?” asked host Greg Gutfeld.

“Presumably there are people much better than Obama! Okay?” Carlson exclaimed. “We all have to sit and pretend, ‘Oh, Herman Cain would be a great president’. The truth is — he would be great at a lot of things, but he is not qualified to be president. We had to pretend he isn’t. I wish we could stop and acknowledge this was a really serious election. It’s a crummy selection perhaps, but there has to be someone who understands the issues better than Herman Cain.”
