tv   Tucker Carlson Tonight  FOX News  September 21, 2020 5:00pm-6:00pm PDT

5:00 pm
>> martha: thanks for joining us tonight, everybody. that is the story of monday, september 21st. we will see you tomorrow night at 7:00. president trump in pennsylvania. good night. >> tucker: there's a trump rally underway in the state of ohio tonight and of course we are following is any news develops including anything about the epic supreme court nomination fight that is starting this week. meantime, good evening and welcome to "tucker carlson tonight." as you know, supreme court justice ruth bader ginsburg passed away from cancer. was a sad moment because death is always sad no matter who dies. death is coming for all of us someday and for that reason we ought to mark a person's passing with a bow of respect, take a moment for humility and perspective and meditate on the fragility of our own lives and the lives of those we love. remember that death is the one
5:01 pm
thing that unites every human being. no matter how powerful we imagine we are, at some point, we will be gone, all of us. in our case, we almost never agreed with her decisions but on friday night's show, we did our best to show some reference because that's the right thing to do. the left by contrast made no attempt at all. a prominent progressives immediately into hysteria and hate. they told us that ruth bader ginsburg's death was more than sad. they said it was a national crisis that imperiled this country's freedoms. ruth bader ginsburg they told us single-handedly kept america from descending into fascism and tyranny. now that she's gone, only her words can keep us safe. that's an odd claim if you think about it. this is supposed to be a democracy. no one ever voted for ruth bader ginsburg. no matter how much you like her or agreed with her, she was in the end a single judge in a country of 350 million people. she was not god.
5:02 pm
yet according to the left, ginsburg was all we had. we must obey her dying words as if they were over the just text. her final wish supersedes our founding documents. what would ruth bader ginsburg do? we must ask ourselves that and then do it. watch. >> as a nation, we should heed her final call to us not as a personal service to her, but as a service to the country, our country at a crossroads. >> honor her last words, that she not be replaced until a new president is installed. >> she said my most fervent wish is that i will not be replaced until a new president is in store. we believe that. >> her fervent wish is that the next president -- that was the last thing she said to the public. >> we know who this man is. we know who this man is. this is a man who does not care
5:03 pm
about a dying woman's final wish. clearly. >> tucker: so turn down the volume and consider for a moment the reasoning here, the argument that they're making. nothing is more important in our constitution. that constitution is in grave jeopardy. that's why we must substitute an 87-year-old woman's final wish for the constitutionally prescribed process for filling a supreme court seat. that's what they're arguing. got that? pretty amusing. keep in mind, we don't know actually what ruth bader ginsburg's final words were. did she really leave this world fretting about a presidential election? we don't believe that for a second. it were true, it would be pathetic because life is bigger than politics even this year. we wouldn't wish finally words like that on any word so we choose to believe that ruth bader ginsburg didn't actually say that but in real life she was thinking in the end
5:04 pm
about her family and where she might be going next, human concerns, not partisan ones. but in practical terms, it's irrelevant what she said. ruth bader ginsburg doesn't get to pick her replacement from her deathbed. that's not how it works. we have a constitution we are supposed to be defending and that's the whole point of the constitution. justice scalia had said something like that, no one would have cared. we would have been embarrassed for him. on some level, democrats know all this, all this talk about her dying wish is ridiculous and insulting to all of us in our country and they will stop soon, democrats have an alternative argument at the ready and one they've been honing all year that goes like this. "do what we want or we will hurt you." that's the real argument they're making. a longtime cnn employee wrote this in the hours after she died. "if they even try to replace rbg, we burn the entire thing
5:05 pm
down. that thing being our country that we built. on friday night, another democrat tweeted instructions for how to begin that process. "we are now walking to mitch mcconnell's house to protest. more than 120,000 people liked that post shockingly. the house is entirely dark significant police presence out front. confirmed by a neighbor, that's not a protest. it's a threat. the point of it was to terrorize mitch mcconnell and his family. only knew it was coming because that's how things seem to work now. the police guarding his house are the only reason it still standing. watch. >> vote him out!
5:06 pm
>> tucker: we shouldn't be surprised by that. just last year that another group of democrats gathered outside mitch mcconnell's home chanting death threats. was all on video. we put up with it of course so it happened again. you get what you put up with. that's true of children and true of countries and we are putting up with this that we shouldn't be surprised. who's doing it? trump voters are fascists, they tell us, but when was the last time trump voters threaten democratic politicians in their homes? the tactics are always the same, and it's always the same people doing it. in any case that he didn't get the message, biden voters assembled at the home of senator lindsey graham who chairs the senate judiciary committee. they will honor ruth bader ginsburg's dying wish by making sure that graham is intimidated. watch.
5:07 pm
these aren't spontaneous demonstrations. no, of course not. they are organized on social media inhabiting for a reason. the democratic party has encouraged this extremism over and over and over again. knightly, we tell you about it, but it never ends. gets worse. last night, the senate majority leader held a press conference targeting mitch mcconnell by name. hard to imagine that, but it happens. invited sandy cortez, a first-term congresswoman from the bronx. he is they said. >> if you want to get back at mitch mcconnell's blatant, nasty hypocrisy, call your senator and tell them not to listen to mitch mcconnell, not to be afraid of mitch mcconnell mitch mcconnell. >> and to mitch mcconnell, we need to tell him that he is playing with fire.
5:08 pm
>> tucker: we need to tell him that he is playing with fire. really? that's a threat. and on instagram, sandy cortez, america's most pampered revolutionary went ahead and suggested that democrats go further, maybe even embrace violence. watch. >> let this moment radicalize you. i don't care if you like him or not. this is not over. we win in november. i'm sorry to tell you you're not going back to brunch. that's not happening. >> tucker: we are not going back to brunch. so now you know what a freshman member of congress was doing sitting at the podium with the most powerful democrat in the senate. why would he choose sandy cortez? because sandy cortez doesn't represent a congressional district. no, her real role is as commander of the youth wing of the democratic party, the direct
5:09 pm
action wing, the thugs who have spent the last three and a half months destroying and in some cases killing on behalf of effectively of the joe biden for president campaign. their followers use these tactics for one simple reason because they work. this summer, a bar owner in omaha was attacked during a blm riot there. a man jumped on his back and put him in a choke hold. garner shot him order to save his own life. was clearly self-defense and that's what prosecutors concluded, but then biden voters took direct action. they took to the streets. what does that mean? in this case, it means they gathered outside the home of douglas county attorney and they threatened him, their presence was a threat and guess what? it worked. last week, he was charged with manslaughter read this weekend, he killed himself. see how that works? do you want to live in a country like that? a state senator from omaha does and she is glad jake gardner is
5:10 pm
dead. megan hunt congratulated the mob on twitter for pushing jake gardner to suicide. hunt encourage them to do it to others. as hunter wrote on twitter, jake gardner is gone but the white supremacist attitude that emboldened him are still with us today. in other words, you know what to do. this should terrify you. democratic leaders have decided that everything is allowed in pursuit of power. nothing is off-limits. give us what we want or we will hurt you. in terms nancy pelosi can understand, that means may be another impeachment. >> some have mentioned the possibility if they try to push through a nominee and a lame duck session that you when the house move to impeach president trump or attorney general barr as a way of stalling them from acting on this nomination. >> we have our options. we have arrows in our quiver
5:11 pm
that i meant not about to discuss right now. >> tucker: impeach the president for what? for following the constitutions letter, for doing what the constitution tells presidents to do when there's a supreme court vacancy. could that really happen? but with the trial look like? we accuse you of following the law? probably not going to happen. that's why she's got the other arrows in the quiver as she says. one of those arrows is direct force. on saturday, california governor gavin newsom's chief of staff tweeted this "i am ready to fly to d.c. in the middle of covid-19 and lay my body on the floor of the united states senate to prevent a vote from occurring before the next term of congress." if she did that, many would join her and maybe they will do it. maybe they will come and physically prevent lawmakers from voting. that's never happened before in the history of our country. could happen now. people are calling for it. does that seem like extremism to
5:12 pm
you? yes. but if it does, keep in mind you are the extremist, you're the one who is willing to do anything for power including use force. here's hillary clinton explaining that her sins are in fact your sins. >> what's happening in our country is incredibly dangerous, our institutions are being basically undermined by a lust for power, power for personal gain in the face of a president or power for institutional gain in the case of mitch mcconnel mitch mcconnell. >> tucker: okay. so if you're following at home, just want to be clear on how this works. democrats are so worried about your attempts to undermine our institutions that in the end they might have to burn those institutions down. here extremism today. laura ingraham is the host of the ingraham angle on the fox news channel that airs nightly at 10:00, always lucky to have her on the show.
5:13 pm
obviously, all of us are worried in the face of this within minutes of the passing of ruth bader ginsburg the mob formed outside the homes of lawmakers. why don't democratic leaders say unequivocally out loud tonight, tomorrow, now, tell their voters to don't do this anymore. no more "direct action," no more violence, no more threats. do you think they'll do that? >> no, i don't think they will pray they've made an unholy alliance with the far left because i think they've given up on convincing the rest of us that they can raise our standard of living or life in the united states is going to get a lot better under their policy. not even trying to argue that. doing climate change, putting more money in your pocket or take a vacation if you are a family of four so they throw that out the window, and it's all about the revolution. if the country is systemically racist, systemically, what has to happen to the system?
5:14 pm
the system has to come down. i'm half expecting when you see stuff going on in d.c. over the weekend and a new york, wondering if the building is going to stand at the end of all of this and schumer and pelosi, they made a decision to ride the wave of aoc and the rest of the squad. they hope to victory in november and if not, that i think all bets are off as to what they will try to do to the country but i think they've given up on trying to persuade us that raising your wages higher than trump did in 2019 which was a record which no one wants to talk about. >> tucker: they are opposed to seeing a conservative sit on the court, i understand that. i was opposed to bill clinton nominating ruth bader ginsburg, didn't burn anything or try to prevent the vote from taking place. we can see where this is going. this is moving towards violence. why don't they call this out out
5:15 pm
loud on the floor of the senate and the house of representatives from the white house and say please call off your voters, stop this now? >> i think they've given u up ad away on calling it out to that extent because i think they know when their heart of hearts it's not going to work. maybe they go one shows and talk about the danger of all of this but again, everyone has to understand who's watching this tonight our entire system of checks and balances, the separation of powers, so i am very familiar with how it operates, that entire system is up for grabs because they will die on the hill of abortion. this is about roe vs. wade, that's really what this is about, and the deeper problem is america is a horrible, awful, racist country. and since it is, everyone who is living has to pay in some way, shape, or form unless you're one of the elites.
5:16 pm
you know those people, the rules never apply to them, or you're one of the oppressed or grieved and then you will get some crumbs from the government. >> tucker: may i ask you one quick question though? a little bit off topic but a sincere question, why abortion of all the issues? there are so many things going on in this country that need to be improved for so many hurting people, why is that this specific issue that convinces democrats they will torch the capital? >> that was really the turning point in some ways of the turn to judicial activism more so than getting rid of the concept of judicial restraint. that's when the court just made it up. in a due process clause the 14th amendment, they read this right to abort into the constitution and it was just made up, and a lot of states outlawed abortion but not all of them. so they wanted to take that
5:17 pm
issue off the table and i think they realized it's like that old game if you pull that little stick out of the game, a whole bunch of marbles comes falling down and for them, that's really it, and they want to take power away from the people. they don't want the people of nebraska being ruled by their own morals. they want the morality of new york to supersede the morality of the rest of the country. >> tucker: they don't have the power of life and death and they're not god and they can't face that. laura ingraham, thank you for coming on tonight. great to see you. at least two senators on the republican side, lisa murkowski of alaska, have announced they would prefer not to vote on a replacement for ruth bader ginsburg until after the election. meantime, democrats united in opposing whomever the president selects. nancy pelosi even setting impeachment on the table as we just told you. she didn't rule that out, impeaching the president and the attorney general as a way to
5:18 pm
delay the supreme court nomination process. matt gaetz is the author of the brand-new book called firebrand, dispatches from the front line of the revolution. packed with all kinds of amazing revelations and he joins us tonight. thank you so much for coming on. so you have at least two republican senators, how should republicans respond to two sitting republican senators saying we're not voting even before we know the nominee? >> there is no fervent wish for a vision of the constitution and the argument that democrats, socialist, and apparently collins and lisa murkowski are making a somehow in the fourth quarter of a basketball game, everyone should take a pause to determine who's going to be the coach next season. this is pretty simple. we the republicans have the power, and we ought to use it. is there any doubt if democrats and socialists controlled the presidency in the senate what they would do? they would be forcing us to
5:19 pm
accept some blue haired warlord to be the next justice but here we have rejecting the duties that they have an senators hen if they do that, there voters should reject them. trump supporter should not be taken for granted in mena, alaska, or any where else and if they are unwilling to do their jobs and take a vote on who the president nominates, they should not have the privilege of continuing to serve in the senate. >> tucker: democrats will stand up and tell you with a straight face that men can get pregnant and they're not embarrassed of anything. republicans, some of them appear to be deeply embarrassed of their purported deepest beliefs. why is that? you worked there. any insight? >> it's a shame that republicans don't fight with the same vigor of democrats but remember mitch mcconnell views his entire legacy as a senate leader as tied to the judiciary. he wrote a book about it and if he is unable to deliver this result for the president, one
5:20 pm
has to ask what is the utility of mitch mcconnell? we put up with things that we don't like like his unwillingness to fight for the wall and his willingness with these trade deals for global organizations and we do it all because he is supposed to be a stud on judges and so it's time to end the hand-wringing and the bedwetting. mitch mcconnell should put pressure on fellow senators, they should lose funding for their campaigns and lose assignments if they are unwilling to fulfill their duty. we have to confront our duties as public officials on one such duty is to advise. said they should have taken a vote on merrick garland so the susan collins of 2020 should certainly agree with the susan collins of 2016 that they should be taking an up or down vote. >> tucker: interesting. congressman gaetz, congratulations on the book. >> i wrote in there how you and i stopped at war with iran a few times. people should check it out. >> tucker: thank you.
5:21 pm
again and again over the past three months, we have watched people get arrested and then walk right out. prosecutors in many places aren't enforcing the law. they're not prosecuting. how do these people get in office and who is funding them? we will tell you with some detail. plus, we are monitoring the ongoing trump rally in the state of ohio. the president said just a moment ago he will announce the nominee soon. here it is. >> mourning the loss of the supreme court justice ruth bader ginsburg, i will soon announce a nominee for the united states supreme court. they say it's the most importa important. ♪ you are my sunshine, my only sunshine... ♪ rybelsus® works differently than any other diabetes pill

5:24 pm
5:25 pm
5:26 pm
>> protest pandemonium going from 0 to 100 in downtown miami moments after demonstrators defaced a statue while others spray-painted the words george floyd, blm for a black lives matter, and the communist symbol. police swarmed the area as a news camera captured cops making numerous arrests. one pushed to the pavement and another hauled away in cuffs.
5:27 pm
with furious and frustrated protesters. >> tucker: most americans had never seen scenes like that and now they are, and all over the country. what happened? police brutality has not increased. in fact, federal statistics show it's down. what's changed in many places as the nature of the prosecutors, the people whose job it is to keep you safe are instead making it easier for criminals to terrorize your family and that's not an accident. left wing of mega-it's easier to install radical das then is to convince the public to let their own cities burn. has worked hard to elect district attorneys who will nullify laws against violence by failing to enforce them. in portland, oregon, where violence has become a way of life, a political action committee funded to mike schmidt's campaign this year has announced he won't prosecute any of the rioters who turned portland into a war zone.
5:28 pm
dismissed charges against writing suspects, hundreds of them. in fact at one point said the unrest in portland was "beautiful. but it's not just portland. they've spent more than $13 million in district attorney races in 17 states. over the past few years, unfolded in florida, california, texas, and virginia. in 2017, spent roughly $1.7 million getting a single man elected in philadelphia, the district attorney and as expected, a dramatic rise in crime. source is now trying to do the same in los angeles, a race under way there now governor of florida stands apart, ron desantis. he is against this trend and for that reason, florida is a very different state from the ones we just mentioned. now pushing for a law that would mandate very harsh sentences for people who riot. in florida under this proposed law, throwing projectiles at police officers would draw a
5:29 pm
mandatory six month jail sentence, barricading roadways would be a felony. ron desantis is standing apart from so many of our elected leaders, even republicans as we wanted to talk to him tonight about what he is doing in a state of florida. thank you for joining us, i appreciate what you're doing. so give us an review of this legislation that you are backing. >> a number of things. increase penalties for people who are involved in these violent demonstrations and that includes things like toppling statues, blocking roadways, we also have a provision that says any municipality that defund the police which is just an insane policy like cutting off your nose to spite your face if you do that, they will defund you. not sending you money if you are doing things like that. we also are concerned about watching minnesota where the marriages advocated responsibility, had the police stand back, that gave these
5:30 pm
folks the ability to run amok. that happens in florida, we are waving sovereign immunity. you can sue the local government for damages for anything that happens to you and as you mentioned was just letting people out, we revoked bail if you are arrested for one of these offenses and once you make your first appearance, the presumption is you don't get bail beyond that because what happens in oregon, they go in and get their mug shot taken and their back on the street doing the same thing. how is that a deterrent? >> tucker: it's not and this has gone on for more than three and a half months since memorial day weekend. i'm not aware of any other governor who suggested what you are suggesting. why do you think people put up with this for so long? >> i don't know but we've gotten a great response from this and part of it was we took action in florida when all this was happening beginning in june, immediately brought up the national guard, highway patrol strike teams that were there. we prevented them from taking over roads because we had things done but i also thought to myself we handled it right, we
5:31 pm
had a lot of mayors who did a really good job but i was like do we really want to keep playing back a mole? when somebody throws a brick at a police officer during one of these demonstrations, and then they have to go immediately to jail, they're going to stop. they're not going to do it. they get away with it, they will continue to do it. it's important as you mentioned on your show and your intro was in fuego. it's like they are threatening to write more, seeing more and more of this. this is something that's coming down the pike, we are going to say not in florida it's not. >> tucker: there's a reason people are moving there and not just the low taxes and good weather. i agree completely. has anybody on the other side come out against this yet and if so, what's their argument against it? >> i think people reflexively on the far left have. i think they do the typical stuff that they do, some of the people on the far left are just
5:32 pm
antipolice. they do believe in defunding the police and so when you have me standing in front of all the sheriffs and police chiefs saying no, you're not going to defund the police. we will defund you. he'll go to jail if you harm a police officer for any citizen, so they're basically caught in this position but i think it's important. we want this done as soon as we can get it done but everyone running for office in florida in the house or senate have to take a position on this now. are you for law enforcement and rule of law, or are you going to stand with the mob? i know where i stand. >> tucker: and i think most people do, even democrats. most people believe in order of course. governor desantis, i appreciate what you're doing and explaining it to us. thank you so much. >> think you. >> tucker: up next, joe biden delivered some very bracing and sad news for 200 million americans yesterday. want to make sure you're sitting down as we show you this tape. plus monitoring the rally
5:33 pm
underway in ohio. the president bringing you an update as they occur. >> these will be done in record time, like nobody's ever done it before. a november 3rd, ohio will decide whether we end the pandemic and return to record prosperity or whether we allow sleepy joe biden and his group of incompetence to delay the vaccine. he actually suggested that he would shut down the country.
5:34 pm
5:35 pm
5:36 pm
5:37 pm
5:38 pm
>> tucker: joe biden simply disappeared on friday and no one could find him but he reemerged him ensure everyone he was okay. the rest of us might not be ok okay. received some very disturbing news. watch this. >> estimated 200 million people have died >> tucker: you might
5:39 pm
not hear this, you may have died during joe biden speech. the message from joe biden's handlers couldn't be clearer. the more you force joe biden to speak, the more people will die and keep in mind every one of those deaths was donald trump's fault. >> of the president had done his job from the beginning, all the people would still be alive. i'm not making this up. just look at the data. not making this up. trump had done his job, unclear what that job is but somehow, all of those 200 million people who died during joe biden speech would be alive today. if trump had just waved his hand and made corona go away, just look at the data. keep in mind in june he told us 120 million people had died for coronavirus.
5:40 pm
in february, he is at 150 million people had been shot to death in this country. who is this dealer? a lot of people are asking this question. >> i have a debate coming up with this guy. you never know. you never know. gave him a big fat shot and he comes out and for two hours, he is better than ever before. problem is is what happens after that. both of us come i'll take it, he will take it. >> tucker: joe biden has not yet agreed to a drug test. dr. marc siegel is a fox news medical correspondent and happy to have him on the show tonight. thank you so much for coming on. 200 million people died during that speech. i think that qualifies as a national emergency. maybe i'm being hysterical. what do you think?
5:41 pm
>> imagine if president trump said that, how the wolves would be all over him and the word of course they used to cover this is gaffe but i have to tell you, it's time we stopped using that word. i've talked to many neurologists, i have an exam in the former vice president and i don't have a clinical diagnosis to make but many have said to me these are not isolated. 200 million people, iraq versus iran, keeps mixing up those two countries, multiple examples of that i want to put forth some ideas tonight, not proof and not even theories but back in 1988 former vice president biden had two aneurysms in his brain using surgical techniques and had a bleed. studies show a 50% long-term cognitive problem. what is cognition? it is thinking, memory, decision-making. he's also got atrial fibrillation, arrhythmia. in a swiss study just shown a
5:42 pm
couple of years ago in thousands of patients but there is a 3% per year sign of stroke where you can't see it except for changes in thinking and 3% per year whether you are on the blood thinners are not so now president trump says we should have drug testing before debates and i'm thinking why would he be saying that? let me tell you one reason, there's a study that shows that for people who have mild cognitive thinking more memory problems you know what helps? speed. you know it helps? adderall. a drug that i prescribed. these drugs can help in low doses for short periods of time. in the olympics, we are testing athletes. baseball games, we don't want anybody to juice. we are analyzing that. we want to make sure nobody takes advantage. this may be the most important election of any of our
5:43 pm
lifetimes, so much at stake here. one road towards the economy, another road lock downs. we need to make the right decision here and one road goes this way, the other road the famous poet said the road not taken. we must take the right road, tucker. >> tucker: inc. you so much for that. i appreciate it. i told you last week about a story from a local news station in nashville, fox 17 about a series of emails between the mayor's office there in the city health department. in those emails, they appear to discuss whether to release to the public the very low number of coronavirus cases connected to bars and restaurants. where it understandably attracted a lot of attention. there's been some drama in nashville since then. under pressure from the mayor's office, they've pulled that story off its web site. no longer reporting that the mayor's office covered up the coronavirus numbers. has now been reported that some of those numbers were put out in
5:44 pm
august. the mayor's office claims email suggesting the cover-up were taken out of context. so we don't know the truth about that because we don't have all the emails we want to keep you up-to-date on what was happening there and of course bringing you more as we learn more. one of the names on the president's short list to replace ruth bader ginsburg has gotten a lot of attention, appears to be the front runner tonight. her name is amy kony barrett. what kind of justice which he be some kind of person is she? as we have all night, we are monitoring the rally underway in ohio and will bring you anything from it.
5:45 pm
5:46 pm
5:47 pm
5:48 pm
5:49 pm
>> tucker: judge amy comay barrett is tonight the top candidate in mind to replace ruth bader ginsburg on the supreme court. the president nominated barrett to the seventh circuit court of appeals back in may of 2017. you haven't seen her opening remarks during those confirmation rings, they are worth finding on youtube. she introduces her family, seven
5:50 pm
children, two adapted with special needs from haiti, a revealing look into her life. mike johnson has known her for a very long time and represents louisiana in the united states congress. we are happy to have yvonne with us tonight. think you so much for coming on. i have to say not legal analysis but as a person, she seems the finest person i've ever seen under discussion for this job. is she? >> that certainly my view. we came from different parts of the state in louisiana but met in student leadership events and she stood out even then when we were 17 years old, a person who is extremely talented but also gracious and humble and that is the kind of leadership that's recognized and not imposed. had a phenomenal career, brilliant constitutional scholar and i'll tell you what i told the president, i've spoken to him on a couple of occasions over the last couple of years because we wanted her to have this position. i said to sum it up, she is a
5:51 pm
