Tucker Carlson recently pointed out the hypocrisy surrounding mainstream media’s coverage of the Justin Trudeau blackface scandal by comparing the way CNN’s Don Lemon handled the matter.

On Tucker Carlson Tonight on Fox News Tucker spent no time singling out CNN’s Don Lemon in a clip where it showed how the liberal Lemon host covered Trudeau’s apology by only redirecting the issue as a way to attack President Trump, Tucker even brought up an older clip from Oct 2018 of Don Lemon talking about the Kelly controversy.

“Megyn is 47 years old, she’s our age. There has never been a time in her 47 years that blackface has been acceptable… I wonder how much diversity she has on her staff. I don’t know, I’m not there but I would imagine there is not a lot,” “This is what people of the larger culture don’t understand about racism and about privilege.”

– Don Lemon

Now compare this to what Lemon said about the Prime Minister…

“He says he didn’t think it was racist at the time, now he knows better,”

“Think about it however you want to think about it. When someone apologizes, wow, we don’t often see that here. Especially a world leader who’s saying, ‘I should have known better and I’m sorry.’”

– Don Lemon

Double Standards Much?

Recently unless you have had your internet and TV turned off you would have seen that it was revealed that the Canadian prime minister was caught up in his own “blackface” scandal of which he attempted to apologize during a news conference in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Though Tucker Carlson (and nor did most of the right on the internet) buy this apology. As its more under the impression that Trudeau didn’t actually take responsibility but rather “transferred it” by blaming privilege.

 “He’s moving responsibility for what he did from himself to the rest of us… it’s not a confession, it’s a justification and the only people dumb enough to buy it are the news media, of course. The dumbest people in the world,”

“Or could it be that because Justin Trudeau is a powerful leader on the left, he gets a pass no matter what he does? I think you know the answer,”

“What a difference a year makes… Megyn Kelly never wore blackface, she wouldn’t do that. She’s not Justin Trudeau,”

“She just made the mistake of not seeming quite offended enough in a TV segment about certain Halloween costumes.”

– Tucker Carlson

Remember that former Fox News host Megyn Kelly was FIRED from NBC News for simply suggesting blackface could sometimes be OK when used for a costume.

So the Real Question is: Should Trudeau be Fired too?

Federal prosecutors claim Roger Stone used a “The Godfather Part II” reference to advocate for a witness to lie and motioned to use a clip from the movie as evidence in the trial of the one-time Trump campaign adviser.

“The relevant scene is important context for understanding Stone’s references — including what Stone intended to communicate to the witness and how Stone would have understood the witness’ likely understanding of those messages,” Friday’s motion read.

The evidence will be used to help prove alleged witness tampering “with Person 2” via a text message that read “Start practicing your Pantagele [sic],” according to prosecutors.

“The movie clip makes clear that in his communications with Person 2, Stone used the name ‘Frank Pentangeli’ and the lines spoken by that character to persuade Person 2 to behave as Frank Pentangeli did in the movie, i.e., to falsely tell a congressional committee that he did not have knowledge of incriminating information that could lead to perjury charges,” the motion argued.

“The movie clip shows the jury the image that Stone intended to evoke in Person 2’s mind when he sent those communications. To not show the clip at trial would deprive jurors of significant context for understanding critical messages in this case.”

In “The Godfather Part II,” Pentangeli was to testify about his involvement in organized crime but changed his mind and denied any knowledge of Michael Corleone’s crime family when the mob boss entered the hearing.
