Former Fox News host Tucker Carlson warns that former President Donald Trump may be assassinated due to the left's constant drumbeat that he's a dangerous man, the Washington Examiner reported. Carlson said this on "The Adam Carolla Show" podcast on Wednesday.
Host Adam Carolla asked Carlson whether he thought the left would "let Trump be president" should he win the election. Carlson's answer laid out the scenario that could ultimately end in Trump's demise.
"They protested him. They called him names. He won anyway," Carlson began.
"They impeached him -- twice -- on ridiculous pretenses. They fabricated a lot about what happened on January 6th in order to impeach him again. It didn't work; he came back," Carlson continued.
"Then they indicted him. It didn't work; he became more popular. Then they invited him three more times, and every single time, his popularity rose," Carlson pointed out.
"So, if you begin with criticism, then you go to protest, then you go to impeachment, now you go to indictment, and none of them work, what's
next? I mean, graph it out, man. We're speeding toward assassination, obviously," Carlson said.
"No one will say that, but I don't know how you can't reach that conclusion," he added. "They have decided -- permanent Washington, both parties -- have decided that there's something about Trump that's so threatening to them, they just can't have him," Carlson said.
He went on to explain that one of the cases against Trump "basically consists of trying to send him to prison for the rest of his life for complaining about the last election." Carlson said that if this happened in another country, the U.S. would be "all hands on deck" warning about an illegitimate government.
"It's really hard to overstate how bad this is, and I don't know where it's going, but there's a collision that's clearly imminent," Carlson said. This is not the first time Carlson has mentioned this possibility.
Carlson asked Trump about this possibility during an interview that debuted on X, formerly known as Twitter, during last week's GOP debate. "Are you worried that they’re going to try and kill you? Why wouldn’t they try and kill you? Honestly," Carlson asked the former president, according to The Hill.
"They’re savage animals," Trump responded. "They’re people that are sick," he added.
Trump is currently facing four separate indictments, each with questionable merits. All seem to be less about the rule of law and more about getting Trump, who is the current frontrunner for the GOP nomination , out of the race.
Nobody is particularly inciting anyone to violence, but Carlson has a point that it's the natural end to the efforts that began before the 2016 election. Enough people see Trump as an evil dictator who will take away rights from women, homosexuals, and minorities.
It doesn't matter that Trump served as president and did not act as an authoritarian ruler. The narrative has been created and perpetuated by the left, and an unfortunate number of people have been sucked into it -- and that's dangerous.
