Scared Schumer Warns Tucker: ‘Don’t Run a Second Segment’ of J6 Footage

On Tuesday, Senator Chuck Schumer dropped his poker face in a show of worry as he begged Fox News Channel to prevent Tucker Carlson from airing any more January 6 video footage “lies,” warning the host not to run a second segment.

On Monday, Carlson released new footage that proves the “insurrection” was actually a police-guided tour through the Capitol, that police escorted Shaman Jacob Chansley inside, that Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick was not murdered during the riot, Ray Epps lied to the Committee about leaving the Capitol grounds, and that Senator Josh Hawley didn’t run away from the Capitol in fear.

So many lies being debunked, and that’s just the beginning!

Schumer declared that he was alarmed by the footage and accused Carlson of lying. He said, “I and so many others who were here are just furious with Tucker Carson. With disregard of the risks and knowing full well he was lying, lying to his audience, Fox News host Tucker Carlson ran a lengthy segment last night, arguing the January 6 Capitol attack was not a violent insurrection.”

He continued, “To say January 6 was not violent is a lie, a lie pure and simple. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a prime-time cable news anchor manipulate his viewers the way Mr. Carlson did last night. I don’t think I’ve ever seen an anchor treat the American people and American democracy with such disdain.”

“And he’s going to come back tonight with another segment,” Schumer warned. “Fox News should tell him not to Fox News, Rupert Murdoch, tell Carlson not to run a second segment of lies.”

He later told reporters, “Rupert Murdoch has a special obligation to stop Tucker Carlson from going on tonight [and] from letting him go on again and again and again [because] our democracy depends on it.”

RINO Mitch McConnell also spoke out on Tuesday and shamed Carlson for publicly airing the footage.

He told reporters, “My concern is how it was depicted. It’s a different issue. Clearly, the chief of the Capitol Police correctly described what most of us witnessed on January 6. It was a mistake for Fox News to depict this in a way that is completely at variance with what our chief law enforcement official here at Capitol thinks.”

Schumer also threw House Speaker Kevin McCarthy under the bus as well for giving Carlson access to the footage.
