Thursday, Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson took a shot at former President Barack Obama for the political tones of his eulogy delivered at Rep. John Lewis (D-GA) funeral earlier in the day. Obama said of ways to continue Lewis’ legacy, “By ending some of the partisan gerrymandering — so that all voters have the power to choose their politicians, not the other way around. And if all this takes eliminating the filibuster — another Jim Crow relic — in order to secure the God-given rights of every American, then that’s what we should do.” After airing a video clip of the speech, Carlson criticized Obama, adding the speech was proof of a cynical effort by the left and Democrats to gain power. “It’s hard to believe that clip is real, but it is, down to the clawing fake accent, Mr. Hawaii guy,” Carlson said. “But take three steps back — imagine if some greasy politician showed up at your loved one’s funeral and started throwing around stupid partisan talking points about Senate procedure. Can you imagine that? You would be shocked if that happened. You’d probably walk out. Desecrating a funeral with campaign slogans — what kind of person would do that? But Democrats in the audience didn’t seem offended. They didn’t blink. They cheered. It all seemed normal to them. And why wouldn’t it? Political power is their religion. It’s not out of place in a church. It’s what they worship. People who will politicize a funeral will do anything, and they’re trying to.”
Tucker nailed it Thursday night. He’s exactly right. What Obama did wasn’t just inappropriate and in poor taste. It was appalling. His so-called eulogy had NOTHING to do with the late Rep. John Lewis (D-GA). It was just a campaign speech, and he threw in a fake southern black accent in order to pander to the members of the black church in Atlanta he was at, for good measure. What a nauseating tool.. And he had the nerve to say that what the President and GOP members of Congress was “playing politics.” Are you kidding me?!? What the heck do you think you were doing at a funeral in church, Mr. former President?!? What a spectacular hypocrite. Tucker is exactly right. If I had been a funeral and someone ostensibly giving the eulogy was ranting about something so brazenly overt as some Senate procedure that has been around for over a half a century and used by politicians on BOTH sides of the aisle (including Obama when HE was in the Senate), I’d have walked out in disgust. What a hypocritical, self-righteous, self-serving, nauseating tool.. To see the video of this, and more, click on the text above. Thanks Tucker for saying what needed to be said.
