Former Fox News host turned successful podcaster Tucker Carlson voiced fears that the deep state establishment is plotting to assassinate President Donald Trump because everything they have done to bring him down has failed.
Tucker told Adam Carolla on his YouTube show this week that “permanent Washington” has decided they “just can’t have” Trump as president again.
Carolla asked Carlson what “the future holds” and whether “they are going to let Trump be president.”
Carlson noted the impeachments and criminal indictments Trump faced and how they didn’t work and only made him more popular.
“They protested him; they called him names. He won anyway.” Tucker said.
“They impeached him twice on ridiculous pretenses,” he added.
“They fabricated a lot about what happened on January 6 in order to impeach him again. It didn’t work. He came back. Then they indicted him. It didn’t work.”
“He became more popular. Then, they indicted him three more times. And every single time his popularity rose,” Tucker noted.
Tucker then expressed fear that the only thing left for the deep state to do is to assassinate Trump.
“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?” Carlson asked.
“I mean, you know, graph it out, man! We’re speeding toward assassination, obviously, and no one will say that!”
“I don’t know how you can’t reach that conclusion. You know what it’s been like. 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 it.”
Last week, President Donald Trump’s interview with Tucker Carlson was watched 263 million times, according to the view counter displayed on Twitter.
The interview was posted five minutes before the GOP primary debate began in Milwaukee.
Trump said that “sparks will fly,” announcing that his interview would air simultaneously as candidates took to the stage.
