Tucker reminds holier-than-thou Joe Scarborough about the skeletons in his own closet

Hyperventilating and histrionics spread far and wide while corporate media covered speculative details about the raid of former President Donald Trump’s Florida home and, while pundits like MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough seemed fixated on the application of the rule of law, Fox News host Tucker Carlson had a reminder about “killer” allegations from Scarborough’s past to reflect on.

Resuming the helm of “Tucker Carlson Tonight” after a vacation, Carlson kicked off his monologue with a review of the FBI’s raid of Trump’s residence at Mar-A-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida. “The official explanations that we have heard for the raid make no sense at all,” he argued.

“It doesn’t matter how forcefully they are repeated by the media, they’re nonsensical,” the host continued as he moved from claims that the president was in possession of unspecified classified documents to a later contention that there were “nuclear secrets” being housed at Mar-a-Lago.

“There was endless huffing on television about something called ‘the rule of law’ and how absolutely no one is above that, no one, not even a former president!” Carlson went on, adding, “We’re informed of this by the same people who paid rioters to burn down our cities, the ones who eliminated bail, the ones who encouraged tens of millions of foreign nationals to ignore our federal immigration statutes and move to our country permanently at public expense as a reward for breaking our laws, but keep in mind, no one is above the law.”

“That was definitely the word from Joe Scarborough, a man who was accused of committing murder while serving as a member of Congress,” the host reminded, “yet somehow moved seamlessly to the MSNBC lineup without being charged or even investigated.”

Carlson was referencing suspicions surrounding the death of then-Republican Rep. Joe Scarborough’s (Fla.) staffer, 28-year-old Lori Kaye Klausutis, who suffered fatal trauma to her head in the lawmaker’s Fort Walton Beach, FL office in 2001. Earlier this year, the Fox News host had raised the specter of that incident when he slammed Scarborough for being out of touch with average Americans and stated, “Scarborough is famously tough on young female employees. Some say he’s an absolute killer in the office.”

Clips of the MSNBC host rattling off the unsubstantiated claims that Trump had nuclear secrets were played on the program with Scarborough saying, “Now with Donald Trump, suddenly, when we’re talking about the possibility of nuclear weapons, classified documents of the highest classified status being stolen from the White House and taken to Mar-a-Lago,” and, “Two words for you, my friend. Two words. ‘Nuclear secrets.'”

“Once again, no one even bothered to explain what these nuclear secrets might be…” Carlson noted, “but that didn’t stop former CIA director Michael Hayden from suggesting that Donald Trump should be executed, fried to death in the electric chair, for committing these crimes, whatever these crimes were. We still don’t know.”

Of course, the Fox News host isn’t the only one to call out potential wrongdoing in Scarborough’s past. In 2017 Trump had tweeted, “And will they terminate low ratings Joe Scarborough based on the ‘unsolved mystery’ that took place in Florida years ago? Investigate?”

As Carlson was certain to point out, “No one is above the law! Remember that.”
