Tucker Carlson, host of Tucker Carlson, suggested that Senator and potential Biden VP Tammy Duckworth (D-IL) hates America and is a moron.

The war between Carlson and Duckworth all began over the weekend when Sen. Duckworth said the argument to remove George Washington statues removed should be heard over the weekend on CNN.

On Monday evening, Carlson said played a clip of Duckworth’s comments and replied by saying “you’re not supposed to criticize Tammy Duckworth in any way because she once served in the military.”


“Most people just ignore her, but when Duckworth does speak in public, you’re reminded what a deeply silly and unimpressive person she is,” Carlson continued.

On Monday evening Duckworth, who served in the US Army from 1992 to 2014 and lost both of her legs while deployed in Iraq in 2004, replied to Carlson by saying “[d]oes [Tucker Carlson] want to walk aa mile in my legs and then tell me whether or not I love America?”

Carlson returned fire on his Tuesday night show.

“Only someone who hates the country would suggest ripping down monuments to its founder,” Carlson lamented.

He also said Duckworth’s arguments pass for “modern identity politics”, she’s afraid to defend her statement on TV, is a “coward”, a “fraud” and a “callous hack”.

Here’s the clip:

We have every right to fight to preserve our nation, heritage and culture. When vandals like Tammy Duckworth and Ilhan Omar tell us that we’re not allowed to question their patriotism, as they scream about how horrible this country is, we have every right to laugh in their faces.


Biden and Trump are joining in on the battle between the Fox News host and potential Democratic Vice President nominee.

Trump shared Carlson’s clip from Tuesday evening.

Biden joined a virtual fundraiser with Duckworth and defended her against the attacks Tuesday night.

Per NBC News:

Joe Biden criticized President Donald Trump on Tuesday for attacking Sen. Tammy Duckworth — a Purple Heart recipient who lost both of her legs while serving in Iraq — as unpatriotic.

Speaking at a virtual fundraiser that Duckworth also attended, Biden said that the comments were “disgusting, sickening” and demonstrated the “depravity of what’s going on in the White House right now.”

“While in fact (Trump is) coddling Putin — Putin carries him around like a puppy in one of those little puppy cages. While that’s going on he attacks, he attacks the senator from Illinois who is a literal hero, combat veteran, lost both legs fighting for her country, and he says she’s not a patriot. Folks we cannot let this stand,” Biden said.

Duckworth is the third most likely to be selected as Biden’s Vice President according to current betting odds.
