As you all know, Tucker Carlson is back, and boy did he drop a bit of a bombshell while talking to Adam Carolla during his Monday night podcast.
Carlson actually dropped several bombs, but I would like to concentrate on what he said about Donald Trump.
When Trump first came on the scene, he was doomed simply because he was an outsider that had no desire whatsoever to suck up to the establishment.
His mistake was embracing some of them, however, such as Senator McConnell (R-KY) who he eventually had a falling out with, and Senator Graham (R-S.C.), whom he still associates with.
Trump also tried to make peace with the Clintons right after taking office, even complimenting Hillary during his first official appearance at a function as president...
Regardless, as we all know, the establishment itself was working against Trump from day one, and they continue to do so.
For all his faults, the things that Donald Trump exposed in this government still have people scrambling, and we still have not scratched the surface. When you think of all the things he said, that everyone laughed at him and cried conspiracy, well, most of them have all come true now.
When you add that to Trump’s brash personality, it is a recipe for disaster for a public figure.
Carlson was on Carolla’s podcast this week and he seems to think that Democrats are well on the path to having Trump assassinated, and he was not kidding.
“Look, they protested them. They called him names. He won anyway. They impeached him twice on ridiculous pretenses. They fabricated a lot about what happened on January 6 in order to impeach him again. It didn’t work. He came back, and then they indicted him. It didn’t work. He became more popular. Then they indicted him three more times, and every single time, his popularity rose.
“So if you begin with criticism, then you go to protests, then you go to impeachment, now you go to the indictment, and none of them work, what’s next? I mean, graph it out, man. We’re speeding toward assassination, obviously.”
Here is Tucker and Carolla on the podcast…
TUCKER ON TRUMP: “We are speeding towards assassination obviously. — They have decided that there's something about Trump that's so threatening to them, they just can't have it”

Democrats have managed have these indictments all stacked up so the entire campaign season will see Trump in a courtroom.
Two of the cases can be bad for him, but the other two, both being conducted by Jack Smith, could result in Trump being disqualified.
If he is convicted under the Espionage Act or they find him guilty of insurrection, the 14th Amendment comes into play, but here is the thing about that.
Democrats are already trying to say that Trump is disqualified via the 14th Amendment, but that is absolutely not true. The ONLY way the 14th Amendment comes into play is if Trump is found guilty. To this point, that has not happened.
There are already early warning signs that Trump is going to have his hands full when these trials start, especially the January 6 trial.
The judge in the case has given lectures on the stand about the riot and how rioters were going to jail but the man behind it all continues to walk free. She set the trial date for March 4, the eve of Super Tuesday.
Donald Trump will get no breaks in that case, so his legal team better start getting appeals ready right now.
As assassination in this day and age is all but impossible to pull off, but it would not surprise me to see it happen.
Make no mistake about it, there would not be a tear in the eye of a single Democrat if Trump took a dirt nap, but they would all be quick to condone the act and deny their rhetoric had anything to do with it.
The problem on the protection front for Trump is that we already know he has intelligence and law enforcement officials at the highest level working against him, so I will not say this is something that will never happen.
Rest assured, however, if Trump wins in 2024, it will make 2016-20 seem like a picnic.
