Tucker shreds Biden’s shooting reaction: ‘Frail, confused, bitterly partisan, desecrating memory of murdered children’

Tucker Carlson’s immediate reaction to President Joe Biden’s address to the nation in the wake of the school shooting in Texas was to lambaste him for “desecrating the memory” of the children who were killed.

Following Biden’s live comments on the tragedy that unfolded in Uvalde, Texas that left 19 children, and 3 adults, including the shooter dead, Carlson called out the president as a “confused” and “bitterly partisan” man on Tuesday’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”

Biden’s brief address included a call for gun law reforms and ended with a prayer for those affected by the tragedy.

“We can do so much more. We have to do more. Our prayer tonight for those parents lying in bed and trying to figure out will I be able to sleep again? What do I say to my other children? What happens tomorrow?” the president said. “May God bless the loss of innocent life on this sad day, and may the Lord be near the brokenhearted and save those crushed in spirit, because they are going to need a lot of help.”

Carlson pointed out how, once again, the president used a time of “great pain” to divide the nation with the “tired talking points of the Democratic Party.”

“The President of the United States. Frail, confused, bitterly partisan, desecrating the memory of recently murdered children with tired talking points of the Democratic Party,” he said.

“Dividing the country in a moment of deep pain, rather than uniting. His voice rising, amplified only as he repeats the talking points he repeated for over 35 years in the Senate. Partisan politics being the only thing that animates him. Unfit for leadership of this country,” Carlson continued.

“What a moment this would’ve been if he’d stopped a sentence in and said we are going to pray for these families and let’s let this marinate for a moment, and let’s stand respectfully before a tragedy – and Joe Biden has lived tragedy, so he could say that was some credibility,” Carlson said as he brought on guest and Fox News host Will Cain.

“He moved immediately into some DNC rant off of the cue card. That’s the president,” he added.

The two agreed that, at first, Biden “sounded like he might bring this country together” during his remarks, only to fail again.

“What a moment this almost was. For there a moment at the beginning of the speech, it sounded like he might bring this country together, talking about the loss inside someone when they lose a child, the hole that never will be filled, quoting scripture which is so important in this moment, Tucker because what we are suffering from culturally is a rot of spirituality, a loss of meaning,” Cain lamented.

“And you are exactly right, he turns and gets animated when it’s time to cast blame, when it’s time to point fingers, when it’s time to be partisan. You know, he can’t point to a single law that would have stopped this shooter, because he does not know what this shooter did yet, what gun he used, he knows nothing about the details of the crime, so therefore he knows not what law he could offer that would solve this crime, which reveals it was just simply partisanship,” he continued as Carlson agreed.

Cain ripped the president and others for their immediate reactions in the wake of the tragedy saying “it is a true reflection of character, and not limited to the president of the United States, if your first instinct is to turn to partisanship, if your first instinct is to blame those who disagree.”

He added that “they will sacrifice anything for their own righteousness for their own narcissism, for their own partisanship.”

“To stand before the image of murdered children and your first impulse is ‘I can be more powerful if I leverage this in the right way’?” Carlson interjected.

“I am in shock having seen the president of the United States call for more power for himself. That’s his answer?” he added.

Cain brought up the many questions that are not being asked, the directions that are not being taken, and the plans not being made in the wake of another mass tragedy in the nation.

“Do we study these shooters, how can we stop them in the future? …we can see what makes them tick, we can do more,” he said.

“We can put money into protecting schools. We just gave $40 billion to Ukraine to protect and rebuild that country, we can’t afford to protect our schools? We immediately put money into protecting schools from Covid, by the way, much of it which is not yet used could be used to protecting schools, there are things we can do,” Cain continued.

“But the most important thing, Tucker, is figure out what is going on culturally with this country. We are callous, we are partisan, we are not spiritual and we have lost meaning,” he concluded.

Carlson concurred and ended by saying, “I hope we will not let politicians leverage our grief to make them more powerful for their aggrandizement. That’s really disgusting.”
