Tucker Carlson Blasts Pro-Lockdown Democrats: ‘Profoundly Damaged People’ Who Are ‘Drunk With Power’

Fox News’ Tucker Carlson slammed Democratic officials for going “crazy” with power as they continue to insist on wide ranging lockdowns on citizens even as the COVID-19 pandemic “recedes.”

On Monday’s edition of “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” the host targeted a number of Democratic leaders he said were “drunk with power” including Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, California Gov. Gavin Newsom, and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio.

Carlson said that one “problem with assessing political candidates is, you never really know what they’re like until they get power.”

“By then, of course, it’s too late,” he added.

Instead of using their power “with restraint and humility,” many Democratic officials “go crazy” and go even “crazier” as they receive more power, Carlson said.

‘Power is the drug they’ve been searching for’

“Power is the drug they’ve been searching for,” Carlson said. “It’s why they went into politics in the first place — not to help you or their fellow citizens, or to improve our society, but to fill the empty space inside themselves. These are profoundly damaged people. Not a single one of them has a functional relationship with their fathers. Not one.”

Despite the fact that the virus has “recede[d]” and those areas that have “cautiously reopened are reaping the benefits,” some “lockdowns are becoming more restrictive, not less, and much, much weirder.”

Carlson focused on Illinois Gov. J.B. Prizker’s emergency restrictions and vow to “imprison business owners if they try to reopen” along with de Blasio’s promise to remove people out of the water if they swim on the beach as examples.

Carlson ended his Monday night monologue by describing several bright “spots” in the U.S. where police have refused to enforce some lockdown restrictions because Americans are “voting with their feet” by defying them.
