Tucker Carlson Goes Full Revisionist On The U.S. Capitol Riot - 2021-04-07
Tucker Carlson struck a snide tone on Tuesday night to downplay the U.S. Capitol riot on the three-month anniversary of the deadly insurrection.
The Fox News personality attempted to spin the narrative on the Jan. 6 storming of the U.S. Capitol by supporters of Donald Trump — who were incited by the then-president ― as just "a mob of older people from unfashionable zip codes" protesting mass voter fraud in the 2020 election.
Carlson's characterization of the violence contradicts videos showing the maurading mob. Five people, including a U.S. Capitol police officer, died. Trump supporters were caught on camera screaming, "Hang Mike Pence!" and stalked progressive lawmakers.
