Shocking! Tucker Carlson Slams Trump (Must See)
MARCH 2, 2018

Fox News star Tucker Carlson shocked everyone Thursday when he went after President Donald Trump’s comments on guns.

The conservative news host opened the show by praising Trump’s tenure, saying his unorthodox style was “usually worth it.” But Carlson went full blast when discussing the president’s recent comments on gun laws.

Specifically, Carlson was unusually upset with Trump over his reported comments that the administration should consider taking “the guns first” and “go through due process second” when it came to mentally ill people who owned firearms. Carlson called it a “betrayal” of one of the president’s core promises.

“Now, I mean, how honest do you want to be? Imagine if Barack Obama had said that? Just ignore due process and confiscating guns? Obama would have been denounced as a dictator!” Carlson exclaimed.

“We would have denounced him first, trust me,” Carlson continued. “Congress would be talking impeachment. Some would be muttering secession.”

Apparently the dopes at Snopes failed to realize this was humor? Talking above someone’s ability to understand…in this case Facebook and Snopes revealed their pay grade on the scale of intelligence!

Facebook Threatens Satire Site Babylon Bee over CNN Story That Snopes Rated ‘False’
March 1, 2018

Christian satire site The Babylon Bee received a terse warning from Facebook this week after the “independent fact-checkers” at Snopes reported that one of the site’s humor articles was “false.”

Adam Ford, who runs The Babylon Bee, was warned by Facebook that a recent satire article about CNN “contains information disputed by ( an independent fact checker.” Repeat offenders, Ford was told, “will see their distribution reduced and their ability to monetize and advertized [sic] removed.”


The story in question pokes fun at CNN with the headline: “CNN Purchases Industrial-Sized Washing Machine To Spin News Before Publication.” Anyone with even a sliver of a funny bone tucked away behind their appendix would know that it wasn’t a serious news piece, but, alas, the humorless dolts at Snopes had to spell out the obvious.
