Twitter Destroys Tucker Carlson After He Attacked Hillary Clinton Over Harvey Weinstein

The Alt Right’s favorite schoolboy Tucker Carlson was given a ruthless beating on Twitter after attacking Hillary Clinton for not responding fast enough to the Harvey Weinstein yesterday, and deservedly so. Tweeted Carlson: 

Forgetting the somewhat inconvenient fact that he not only failed to “speak out” about his colleagues Roger Ailes and Bill O’Reilly — both outed sex offenders, Carlson even publicly defended them. Here he was on Roger Ailes (h/t Pajiba): 

“It’s very sad because he’s a very good person. I’ve always found him to be just a very, very good person. And, by the way, a very, very talented person. Look what he’s done. So I feel very badly.”

And on Bill O’Reilly:

“I think he’s a person I know well — he is a good person. I think he shouldn’t have settled; personally I think he shouldn’t have settled. Because you should have taken it all the way. I don’t think Bill did anything wrong.”

But yes, Hillary Clinton, who did speak out forcefully against Weinstein, is to be condemned because took a few days to respond publicly to the scandal. Thankfully, the good people of Twitter pointed this out to Carlson who should have known better: 

Ouch. Perhaps you should keep quiet on this one, Tucker. The internet has a memory, and it doesn’t remember you well.
