Tucker Carlson devoted his opening monologue Monday to another one of presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s prospective running mates, this time turning his attention to previous National Security Consultant Susan Rice.
The “ Tucker Carlson Tonight” host described Rice as a “neocon” who regularly lied to enhance her own political ends, most notably in the aftermath of the 2012 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya.
” When the U.S. consulate in Benghazi was ruined … Rice herself said something that was actually insane. She blamed that attack on an online video,” he stated. “Rice knew when she stated it wasn’t real however she stated it anyhow.
” Rice understood that was a lie when she stated it,” Carlson stressed. “She knew the attack in Benghazi was not spontaneous. It wasn’t based in outrage.”
The host added that the video’s Egyptian creator, Nakoula Nakoula, was apprehended after Rice blamed it for the attack and is supposedly now destitute and living in a homeless shelter.
” His life was entirely destroyed,” he said. ” Susan Rice has never ever apologized to him. … That is a moral criminal activity.”
Later on in the segment, Carlson further described Rice as somebody who “understands exactly what she desires and she understands the system all right to get it. She’s a hazard.
” Just what does she think? Susan Rice believes what everyone else in irreversible Washington thinks, due to the fact that above all, Rice is a product of D.C.. She grew up there. To our political class, Rice is the opposite of an outsider. She is the house group.”
