Fox News host Tucker Carlson has accused Democrats of pursuing impeachment as a political ploy to disguise the fact that the party has drifted so far to the left that it no longer represents mainstream America or can connect to most voters.
During the Friday night edition of “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” the host labeled the Democratic Party “too radical to win a conventional election.”
Carlson opened his show with a video clip of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi invoking the Constitution on Tuesday as she said Democrats will launch an impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump.
The Pelosi and Schiff-led Democrat Party want to invalidate the will of the American people with their bogus impeachment push.
They are blinded by their hatred of @realDonaldTrump and the American people aren’t buying it.
Stop the madness.

“It’s about patriotism, kids. Aunt Nancy says it is. If you love this country, you will shut up and obey her. Ugh,” Carlson said.
Carlson then mocked Pelosi for trying to paper over politics with a layer of patriotism.
“What’s the point of even repeating a talking point that stupid? Is there a single person in this country who really thinks it’s about patriotism? In fact, is there anyone who thinks it’s about protecting the country?”
Carlson said that if there is one political group that’s not the least concerned about protecting America, it is the Democrats.
“How many self-righteous lectures are we going to hear about national security, delivered by the very people who gave us open borders and an endless string of pointless wars?” Carlson said.
He then came to his point.
“There is no moral component to any of this. They saw an opening to grab power and they are taking it,” he said.
