The Fox News host also falsely claimed that George Floyd died of a drug overdose.
On Wednesday night, Tucker Carlson bizarrely tied the Capitol riots and George Floyd‘s death together to suggest that Democrats were using the incidents to change the “old order” of America.
The Fox News host was more of a conspiracy theorist on his Tucker Carlson Tonight show, where he claimed that “Democratic partisans” used Floyd’s death for their own liberal agenda, and were now doing it again with the Capitol riots that occurred on January 6.
This all began with Tucker suggesting that Democrats and the media purposely lied about Officer Brian Sicknick’s death to push an agenda. Initial reports said that Sicknick died after he was hit with a fire extinguisher; investigators now believe his death could’ve been the result of a reaction to a chemical irritant.
“Streams of politicians, the same people months before had told us that cops were racist by definition, the same people praised Brian Sicknick as a hero,” he said. “They had finally found a police officer who served their political uses. Kamala Harris and her husband, for example, arrived to pay their respects, and as they did, they said not one thing about defunding police. But, in fact, the story they told was a lie. From beginning to end.”
