Tucker Carlson Feels Threatened by Gender Neutral Bathrooms at DNC

Completely ignoring the insanity of the GOP Convention, Tucker Carlson, like other right-wing pundits, roundly condemned the Democratic National Convention. According to Carlson – and this is coming from a guy who works at Fox News, mind you – it was a “bizarre event.”

Not least among his problems with the DNC are its gender neutral bathrooms, which he calls “disgusting.” Carlson, who has previously taken the position that extending Title IX protections[1] to transgenders is “frivolous,” isn’t feeling liberated, poor guy.

Speaking on Fox & Friends Tuesday, Carlson could do nothing but whine about how unfair it is that transgenders be able to use the bathroom too.

TUCKER CARLSON (CO-HOST): I thought it was the most disorganized event I have ever covered in 25 years. It was the most badly organized, bizarre event.

Well just the whole thing was bizarre, starting from the like gender neutral bathrooms, which are disgusting. I mean I guess we’re liberated by this? Everyone should come visit one and see the reality of it. It’s unbelievable. To the totally screwed up security situation outside. To a line of speakers urging Americans to break the law. To no American flags. I mean the whole thing was like an alternate reality.

I guess Democrats just aren’t insecure enough to need to cloak themselves in American flags. And if you want somebody to give speeches urging Americans to break the law, you have only to watch the GOP Convention or Carlson’s own network.

Yes. Tucker Carlson, who inhabits Fox News’ alternate reality bubble, complains that actual reality is “alternate reality.” Clearly, he is been wearing that tinfoil hat too long.

It’s called the real world, Tucker. It’s full of people who aren’t like you, thank all the gods – or anything else you care to thank.

Sadly, and Donald Trump’s appeal is evidence enough of this, the real world is just too much for Republicans to handle.
