Fox News host Tucker Carlson has cooked up a wild new conspiracy concept about President Joe Biden and first woman Jill Biden: Their complete 43-year marriage is a sham created for publicity.
Carlson, triggered by Valentine’s Day coverage of the overtly affectionate first couple, launched right into a riff of over-the-top mock reward of the Bidens’ relationship based mostly on these media studies.
“Not since Antony dined with Cleopatra in downtown Antioch ― before they killed themselves, obviously ― has a country witnessed a love story as poignant as Jill and Joe’s,” he sarcastically declared, including:
“Jill Biden is not Joe’s caretaker. She isn’t his nurse. She’s his fully equal romantic partner. Together, they are like besotted teens, yet, at the same time, they are the wise and knowing parents of a nation.”
Carlson particularly cited a Politico report on the Bidens PDA that said, “Historians and relationship experts agree: The first couple’s romantic gestures aren’t just genuine — they’re restorative.”
Then he mocked each the protection and the couple.
“So it’s official: The Bidens’ affection is totally real. It’s in no way part of a slick PR campaign devised by cynical consultants determined to hide the president’s senility by misdirection,” he mentioned, his voice rising a pitch and turning right into a cackle. “Not at all! Their love is as real as climate change.”
Normally that might imply the primary couple’s relationship is on stable footing, on condition that climate change is real.
His full monologue is on YouTube. But on social media, critics weren’t precisely feeling the love for Carlson’s newest claims:
