tv   Tucker Carlson Tonight  FOX News  January 16, 2017 6:00pm-7:01pm PST

6:00 pm
augment. thanks for watching us tonight, i am bill o'reilly. please remember, the spin stops here. we are definitely looking out for you. >> tucker: good evening and welcome to "tucker carlson tonight." just three days ago, in an interview with nbc, john lewis of georgia called donald trump illegitimate. he followed up by saying he won't attend the inauguration. trump responded with a series of tweets. the networks went wall-to-wall with their coverage of this. you've been watching it. this is a fight democrat started and they seem to enjoy it so far. republicans enjoy it too. attacks like the one from john lewis, will it help the democrats win elections in the future? the democratic party has lost more than 1,000 officeholders
6:01 pm
nationwide. for someone who wants to lead the democrats into the future, who is running for dnc chair, thanks you for joining us tonight. >> good evening, tucker. >> tucker: were asked about this over the weekend on fox & friends. they asked about congressman lewis is comment. by that, did you mean that this is an election that didn't actually take place where we should pretend it didn't happen, as someone who wants to lead the democratic party, what is your position on that? >> this is the position of not just democrats or ripple communicants, that morning, something happened in that election with russia. something happened that was so significant that the democratic members of congress that got that classified briefing stormed out of that room and we may never know what that is. if it's at classified. we all have those questions.
6:02 pm
i don't think anybody enjoys us. i don't think anybody like this. this is an attack on our democracy. donald trump had an opportunity after he was the president-elect to start to try to heal the wound from the election. instead, he chose to take us in a different direction and continue his type of baseless attacks. but someone like john lewis, so respected and american that they named us navy ship after him, to see what he is doing on martin luther king day, no one is standing for it. not democrats, not republicans. not anybody who cares about the future of this country. >> tucker: so he's the one congressman out of 135 you are not allowed to attack. my question to you is, if you are elected chair of the democratic party, and you intend
6:03 pm
to become a when you go across the country, you're going to say we would have won that election if only vladimir putin in ways we can't explain or be specific about had not intervened. >> no. >> tucker: your understanding as hillary lost because of putin. that's what you just said. >> don't put words in my mouth, tucker. there are things the democratic party needs to address. certainly we have to find better ways of communicating our issues and await the dark way to inspire communities that will turn out for us. we have to make sure we are defending our policies in the same way that donald trump was so effective as a communicator, we have to be able to do the same thing. and we will do it and will win by telling the truth which is the opposite of what we saw from the republicans in the race in 2016. we have a lot of work to be done. we have to bring young people in, we have to make sure the
6:04 pm
infrastructure of the party has the resources that they need. this is not just a one issue situation. i'm not going to play a game and simplify it, tucker. >> tucker: i want you to explain it. the first thing you mentioned in that long litany was we need to get the communities out. one thing that did not come out for you was white voters. any democrat running for president, that was the lowest number for white voters. clearly a massive problem for her. to see that the problem and what would she need to do to rectify it to get white people to vote again? >> strategic mistakes that were made as far as where we are going to communicate, what type of messages were going to be communicated, is a campaign. i get it. i'm not going to say that we need to throw the baby out with the bathwater. we need to make better decisions when it comes to how we tell the democratic party's story. to make sure whether you are you
6:05 pm
white working-class voters, or a low income african-american voter or middle-class working family, all of us, we are going to be harmed drastically harmed by the policies that this administration is clearly intending to put in place. it is about communication. >> tucker: here is a famous and skilled communicator. the spokeswoman for bernie sanders, kind of a big deal. she said this, i'm quoting on cnn, this november. "we don't need white people leading the democratic party right now." do you agree with that? >> it's great to have people like simone's passion. and the young voters that were attracted to bernie sanders. they are part of the democratic party and we need to find ways for everybody feels welcomed. >> tucker: what you think of
6:06 pm
that? we don't need white people leading the democratic party right now. do you agree with it? >> clearly i am in the race, tucker, i think we need to be leading the democratic party right now. >> tucker: hold on. this is not a fringe person. we don't need white people leaving the party, if some of the republican side said we don't need black people leading the republican party. do you agree that she said that? >> just because we have the same hairstyle doesn't mean i agree with everything she says. you should have simone on your show and ask her. from inside out like i do -- >> tucker: just the pitch, so you can hit it. do you think it's okay to say we don't need white people leading the democratic party.
6:07 pm
i'm expecting you to say that's an appalling thing to say. you can't say that about an entire racial group. >> is not the right message that needs to be out there right now. >> tucker: is a good thing to say? and can you meet in saying that? >> it's not what i believe so i don't know why i'm having a conversation about you about what another african-american woman said. we don't all think and say the same things or look like. >> tucker: hillary clinton who is not an african-american woman, she said during her campaign, we need to recognize white people, our own privilege and practice humility. that's sort of a big generalization. do you think the children of oxycontin addicts need to recognize their privilege? is there a reason white voters abandoning the democratic party, maybe they feel attacked by things like that. >> looked, tucker, you are
6:08 pm
really smart man. you understand nuance and communication and you do a lot of critical thinking. try to boil that statement down which is an attack on a voter in a certain state, that's just ridiculous. i'm tired of being that conversation. this is what makes people opt out of politics. a part of why we lost is because people were not inspired. they were disgusted. by the discussing in the 2016 elections. >> tucker: so by my asking, that's what is opting people out of politics? you are accusing me of being devices. is that what you are doing? >> do you think you are divisive, tucker? which side of it are you on? >> tucker: that's a fair thing to say. it's an awful thing to say.
6:09 pm
>> scared to acknowledge that there are issues of white privilege out there, the concerned very specific communities, and they are based in reality. but it's also absolutely fair and something i think democrats understand about the pain that all americans, all americans, are going through. i'm not going to sit here and have this conversation that conservative republicans want the democratic party to be having, to have divide us in this way. because actually, we are united. and what we need from an economic -- and we need to protect women's rights, which are under attack. we are united. >> tucker: are you? >> i'm not going to let you divide us along those lines. it's not as stupid as that. >> tucker: i was quoting hillary clinton and asked you what you thought of it and you started calling me names. >> i didn't call you names.
6:10 pm
you're being too sensitive, tucker. come on. >> tucker: let's see if you can respond to this one. an economic message that speaks to the needs of middle-class, of all colors, i applaud you for trying to find that message. for eight years, president obama has been telling us that he wants to lower drug prices because they are too high. that was part of the purpose of obamacare. because they're still too high. a very fast wave would be to import drugs from canada. why in eight years did barack obama not call for that? >> barack obama called for so many fixes to obamacare. you understand what republicans did when that man was first inaugurated. they set on day one they were going to obstruct and they successfully did in many ways. she and the administration were very clear, there were lots of things he still needed to fix with health care. there were lots of problems.
6:11 pm
if you don't have anybody in congress, anyone on the other side the knees to put the american people first instead of trying to destroy government because they didn't like barack obama -- >> tucker: this is silly. you are above this. i don't want to relitigate it, but if you're going to generalizations that are not true, democrats held all three branches of government when obama came into office. >> it that is false. the obstruction that the republicans -- >> tucker: i know, the republicans are bad -- >> tucker: if you deny it, that's on you. >> tucker: i am not denying that republicans didn't try to stop obama's agenda. sometimes it was justified, other times it wasn't. i am asking a very specific
6:12 pm
question. i'm asking you, do you agree with donald trump's plan to reimport drugs at a lower place from canada? the pharmaceutical companies are s now pushing for it. what is your response to that? >> i haven't seen the exact plan you're talking about. i'm not going to play this game. you're refusing to even celebrate martin luther king day and understand -- >> tucker: why do you always bring this back to race? >> that's where this conversation started. >> tucker: i'm not endorsing everything trump does. this overlaps with what democrats have wanted to do for a long time, decades, and he saying yeah, let's do it. i'm asking are you forward or not? >> i am the last person that it's going to cheerlead some small little one-off from
6:13 pm
donald trump because i am looking at the bigger picture of what this man is about to do to this country. and responding in the ways of people who are terrified, who are fearful, the women who were marching the day of the inauguration and the men who are joining them -- >> tucker: this is not very impressive. i have to say. thanks for joining us. we are less than 100 hours away from donald trump becoming president of the united states. he spent one of his last days as a private citizen in the trump tower in manhattan. he talked about civil rights, we are with peter in trump tower tonight. >> hey, by the end of the week, the president-elect will live at the white house. this afternoon, he took the golden elevators down to see martin luther king the third of off. it was the only time that we saw mr. trump today. but his guest was here to talk
6:14 pm
about his dad, martin luther king junior's legacy. came over to microphones to tell reporters what he thinks his dad, dr. king's message for mr. trump would be and notice when you listen to this, he seems more concerned with big issues than things said in interviews or on social media. >> i think my father would be very concerned about the fact that there is 60 million people living in poverty and somehow we've got to free the climate for all folks to be lifted. $20 trillion almost, it's insanity that we have poor people in this nation. that is not acceptable. >> meanwhile, the cia director continues to be involved in something a spy chief wouldn't normally be involved in. that's a very public dispute. john brennan said that he thinks the president-elect needs to be careful about what he said about russia and what he does with russia. the president-elect does not appreciate that advice. in fact, mr. trump is now raising the possibility that langley could have leaked the
6:15 pm
unverified document last week. the first part of mr. trump's latest attack is this... the president-elect then added this. was this the leaker of fake news? an incoming press secretary said today that the president-elect or the president should be able to trust the cia director but after brennan's public warning, spicer is not so sure that brennan understands mr. trump's graft on political issues overseas. tucker. >> tucker: peter doocy, reporting of live. time now for our twitter storment. the forecast of social media's
6:16 pm
most powerful weather patterns. rosie o'donnell, tweeting... aaron crow responded this way. do you realize what you're calling for is civil war? your tweet is dangerous and sad. that is tonight's twitter storm. up next, were talking about the
6:17 pm
most egregious cases of dumbness in the media this week. of course, there are a lot of them. bret baier joins us in "the friend zone" to discuss donald trump's imminent ascension to the presidency. all of that, and a whole lot more. you totanobody's hurt, new car. but there will still be pain. it comes when your insurance company says they'll only pay three-quarters of what it takes to replace it. what are you supposed to do? drive three-quarters of a car? now if you had liberty mutual new car replacement™, you'd get your whole car back. i guess they don't want you driving around on three wheels. smart. with liberty mutual new car replacement™, we'll replace the full value of your car. liberty stands with you™. liberty mutual insurance.

>> tucker: i like those graphics. we expose the most abominable cases of malpractice in the american press. joined by our old friend, he is of course the host of sunday mornings media buzz program which we never missed. howard, great to see you. what'd you get? >> kellyanne conway, during a
6:21 pm
lot of very personal flack for her role. the rights of the dark magic of this right winger. they had this to say on cnn. >> one of the great anonymous sources of our era is kellyanne conway, she does it every day, she has been an anonymous source for the last ten months particular during this campaign, when it suits her. it's time now to talk about what we do as journalists and what propaganda ministers do. >> tucker: i love the fact that carl bernstein is calling out anonymous sources. i'm against that. [laughs] >> they all speak to reporters off the record. they spin and they deflect and
6:22 pm
that's what they do. why single out kellyanne conway as a propaganda minister? unless maybe you don't like her... >> tucker: they are all paid liars. but i think she's more charming than most. speak we talk about john lewis story, it was friday that msnbc said she didn't think trump was a little bit president. not a word about this attack, because i guess they met about the president is not a big deal. now after trump counterattacked and criticized john lewis -- >> tucker: wait, so they never covered it the first time? >> no. >> tucker: i thought this was the headline. not on elected officials, as a
6:23 pm
member of congress. can't you call it that? >> look, we can certainly debate whether donald trump goes too far, whether it john lewis or alec baldwin or meryl streep, when you pick up the story sort of it at round two after the guy has been attacked. that seems a little unbalanced. >> tucker: with no predicate at all. >> if a republican congressman had said i don't think barack obama is legitimate, do you think it would've taken more than a day? this is the worst one of all, in my point of view. jeff sessions, very common for nominees to have their extended family there. an mtv writer tweeted the following. another tweet... this is the senators young granddaughter.
6:24 pm
she's a prop. because they don't like sessions position politically. >> tucker: what's disturbing as they saw her as an asian baby, not just a baby. a very cute baby. >> took the guy two days to apologize. mtv didn't do anything to him. because in that crowd, fine, we'll just take a shot of the family. that seems fair, doesn't it? >> tucker: they didn't censure him or suspend him? >> no, no action whatsoever. we talk about young grandchildren -- it's so below the belt. >> tucker: news organizations institute institute policies where they rein in tweets from their employees. >> there need to be some standards if you're not going to spew hatred, that's what i think this is. >> tucker: are you saying that "the new york times," "washington post," mtv say you can't tweet? >> no one says you can't tweet but especially when you're covering politics, you can't
6:25 pm
tweet stuff that shows you are completely biased. bringing the grandchild, come on. >> tucker: post media buzz. great to see you. bob thiokol is back in case you missed it. after an absent of nearly two years. you can catch on him weeknight, here's a highlight from his first day back. >> i woke up and i had three back operations. after the fog. they give you the anesthesia. i had this horrible dream that donald trump got elected president. and then i woke up and i said it's true. >> i brought something for you, on that note. in the break, we will put this on your suspenders. >> we brought this back just to rub it in. >> tucker: man, i worked with beckel 20 years ago at a different network. great to have you back, bob.

6:28 pm
6:29 pm
>> tucker: congressman john lewis of georgia is being cast as the undisputed champion of black america, standing in opposition to donald trump on behalf of all african-americans. lewis does not speak for all
6:30 pm
african-americans. mason weaver used to be a black panther, he now says lewis is a civil-rights turncoat who is collaborating with the democratic party to oppress black america. mr. weaver joins us now to explain what he means. thank you for joining us. >> my pleasure. >> tucker: what did you mean by that? >> you know, in the early '70s and late '60s, demonstrating and protesting for the right to compete as adult citizens in america. who are not demonstrated to be taken care of. congressman lewis, he crossed a bridge and they beat him and ran over him. those were democrats. it was democrats, it was democrats that oppressed folks. it was democrats that voted for the lunacy test. he was fighting democrats. after they beat him and ran over him and it stuck into the
6:31 pm
ground, he got up and turned and joined them. he joined the oppressors. and became a stooge for them. destruction of black man, black woman, drugs, he has presided over the worst school system in the world where black people are learning little. i'm outraged that the demonstration in his earlier life has turned to this. >> tucker: you are saying she's presided over. his congressional district? >> not his congressional district but the black caucus that has owned and controlled a gettable hellhole. it's a place that nobody wants to go to. every inner-city police inner-city jail, there is nothing but drugs and misery. black-owned businesses, housing
6:32 pm
has been reduced. they've presided over the destruction of black people. they should be ashamed of themselves. i don't understand why any black person could be a democrat. >> tucker: interesting. you believe that john lewis when he gets up and says anything has already been discredited because of what he has failed to do since the civil rights era? >> he has done nothing. john lewis, bless his heart. it took courage to do what he did in his early life. but what he has done now, he has turned himself to his enemy like a little girl being beaten by daddy and joins daddy. she joins the husband. he has joined the enemy, the oppressor, and what he should do, if you are of real man, if you are a real hero, you stand up to them and you apologize. you've led them through decades of hell. you should apologize, see you made a mistake, but the
6:33 pm
democratic party has always been part of the clan, abuse, tried to keep slaves. always been the destruction of black people. mr. lewis, you your presided or destruction of black america. you owe us an apology. matter of fact, you have more concern about trump being the illegitimate president but john lewis is an illegitimate congressman. >> tucker: you don't believe john lewis is doing this on purpose, or that the black caucus is doing this on purpose, do you? >> that's why i love you so much, tucker. you are so kind. so genuine, but i know that you hate b.s. so i'm going to tell you. all i've seen, people have gotten wrist and people of gotten poor. black caucuses got more powerful and money, the people under them
6:34 pm
have gotten poorer. less education, more jails, more drugs. if you did that in your job, you would be fired. if you did that in any other position, you would be fired. the strong the black caucus is, the more powerful democrats are, the worst off black people are. i'm just saying that the citizens of america, looking around, any place you find black people and democrats, you find poverty. wait till someone says i'm wron wrong. you find disgrace, no jobs, you find a place that is ugly. unlivable. that is his legacy. >> tucker: mason weaver, not a minster of words. thank you for joining us tonigh tonight. >> thank you for having me, i appreciate it. >> tucker: up next, a former cia officer is about to wind up in an italian prison. people with that hours of right
6:35 pm

6:40 pm
officer. that got her in trouble with italian authorities who accused her of assisting in a kidnapping of a radical islamic cleric. italy, the nascent that were once jailed scientologists for not proving an earthquake. not being able to defend hersel herself, and extradition from portugal to serve a four-year prison sentence and it literally. obama has had 140 pardons, 176 sentences, so far he has done nothing at all that we know of to assist her, who saved her country. she joins us now where it is close to 3:00 a.m. in portugal. i appreciate having you on. is there anything that i just said that it's false? you are on the cusp of being extradited. >> starting tomorrow, i have no idea what is going to happen, the conditions once i get to italy.
6:41 pm
>> tucker: horrifying. considering you've already been convicted. this all stems from the kidnapping last decade of this man. you were skiing with your son on a ski vacation with the kidnapping took place, that decision was not made by you in any case, was it? >> absolutely not. there was no input into the decision, she was a dangerous terrorist, had been taken off the streets of milan. a year after she was in egypt, he was set free for lack of reputable evidence against him. >> tucker: you've been convicted an italian court for this, but your supervisors who made that decision back in washington, are free to travel to europe. they have not been convicted. is that correct? >> that's correct. the reason we have these secrets is and all of this is to make sure that they remain. that way.
6:42 pm
>> tucker: it yes. so the obama administration, fox reached out to the state department to ask, what are you doing to help your former employee? they said this... the department of state takes overseas seriously. it doesn't seem like they are taking your case seriously at all. >> the u.s. u.s. embassy, has d out to me, for this expedition and make sure he my travel document is up-to-date. signed the privacy waiver. to me, the notion itself is a little absurd considering i'm not going as a typical american citizen who has been convicted of a crime or something like that. this was an activity that was sanctioned all the way up to the national security council. >> tucker: presumably, president obama could get on the phone and say, we have military installations in italy.
6:43 pm
we do a lot of business with italy. you may not do this. how does that sound? has he done anything that you are aware of? >> no, i'm not aware of anything like that. this entire fall outcome of this entire ambition has been headed by the cia completely. the cia has decided what is good for congress, what congress has told, what they are not told, who gets the pardon, who doesn't. et cetera. i don't know how much the president has made, and if director brendan has said anything. in this particular case or the whole thing itself. i think a large part of this is because of the italian intelligence services, so many of them were convicted in fact, one of them is the chief of the italian intelligence. this is kind of all outrageous for the talents to have the chief resign over an
6:44 pm
ill-conceived operation that had little intelligence. >> tucker: yes. you must feel betrayed. i feel betrayed as an american just watching you. what you hope that the newly installed president trump will do for you? >> well, i'm a little bit optimistic. just because i am a strong advocate in congressman pete hoekstra. i think president-elect trump should do is really make sure they stop the presidents of u.s. diplomats and agents being convicted by foreign courts. this case requires proper investigation and accountability and that should happen from washington, not in a foreign court. i'm hoping this is one thing the new administration does look into. >> tucker: if the u.s. government can't even defend its own cia officers, then we are lost. sabrina, good luck. we are going to stay on your story.
6:45 pm
good luck to you. godspeed. >> thank you, tucker, for the opportunity. >> tucker: according to s survey, atheism has surged in this country. in 2007, 16% of americans identified as atheist, agnostic or otherwise unattached with church. today, 23% identify as such. it's a big change. of course just because america's less churchy doesn't mean it's less religious. let me explain our increasingly turbulent politics. bernie sanders, trump, some are happy to go with god but some are happy to say i'm with her. that might explain it. up ahead, we bring you something brand-new. lindsay lohan may have cast her lot with a new religion. she is not an atheist, apparently. and then, bret baier live in

6:54 pm
