Tucker Carlson Delivers Spectacular Self-Own While Covering Trump's Impeachment

The Fox News host tried to attack CNN and NBC -- but it backfired.

Fox NewsTucker Carlson on Wednesday night delivered what could be the most self-unaware moment of 2019.

The “Tucker Carlson Tonight” host turned his ire on CNN during his commentary on the House vote to impeach President Donald Trump over the Ukraine scandal by mocking a journalist who was describing Democratic reaction to developments. 

“Did you just hear that?” asked Carlson, chuckling.

“Imagine doing that. Imagine reading a political party’s talking points verbatim every day of the year and pretending that it’s news,” he continued. “That’s what it likes to be an anchor over on CNN or for that matter an NBC employee.”

People on Twitter were quick to remind Carlson of his tendency to stump for Trump and repeat GOP talking points on his widely watched show.

They also noted how Sean Hannity, his prime time Fox News colleague,  even joined Trump onstage at a campaign rally in Missouri before the 2018 midterms, and in June vowed to campaign for the president’s reelection in 2020.
