Tucker Carlson responds to Buttigieg, media lecture about Trump’s Christian supporters

Tucker Carlson responded to left-wing criticisms of President Trump and his Evangelical Christian supporters Monday, singling out South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg and a handful of cable news hosts.

Citing the Christmas season, Carlson asked his audience to think of what the image of a “sincere and faithful Christian” might look like. Turning to Buttigieg, he wondered aloud whether a “narcissistic former McKinsey consultant who passionately supports late-term abortion” might be that person.

“Indeed,” Carlson said. “Buttigieg claims to be so faithful that he literally knows which political party God supports.”

In recent remarks, Buttigieg claimed that Christian faith does not “require you to be a Republican — especially in these times.” During a debate this past July, he criticized “so-called conservative Christians” in the U.S. Senate who blocked a minimum wage hike bill.

TRUMP ACCUSES PELOSI OF ‘CRYING FOR FAIRNESS’ IN SENATE TRIAL

“Scripture says whoever oppresses the poor taunts their maker,” the 2020 Democratic presidential candidate said. In other comments, he said that he could not “imagine” God belonging to the party “that sent the current president into the White House.”

On “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” Carlson said Buttigieg may seem like the most sincere Christian to many political reporters because they have “no clue.”

Turning to CNN host Chris Cuomo, Carlson played a clip of him debating why Evangelicals could support Trump.

“The governor’s brother explaine[d] to Christian writer Eric Metaxas that real Christians vote Democrat,” Carlson remarked.

Cuomo, whose brother Andrew is the three-term Democratic governor of New York, asked Metaxas why he would support Trump — whom he claimed has made a “mockery” of Christianity.

Metaxas disagreed with the sentiment, turning the question on the host and asked if Trump has made a mockery of Cuomo’s Catholicism.

“If he said he were Catholic, yeah he does — he does not practice humanity, he does not practice decency, he does not love mercy, he is intentionally unkind, he is mean to opponents,” Cuomo responded.

Carlson later pointed to MSNBC host and civil rights activist Rev. Al Sharpton, who recently claimed Trump supporters would “sell out” Jesus Christ to support their “shameless con man” of a president.

Carlson said the comments showed America has reached “peak Orwell” with Sharpton calling out a supposed “con man.”

“The left presumes the right to lecture the people it despises for the sin of not voting for them,” he said later in his monologue. “This may shock some Democrats but most Christians don’t actually think they have a religious duty to be destroyed by people who hate them.”

In an apparent nod to the approaching New Year, Carlson remarked, “Let’s hope this brand of insanity dies with 2019.”

Billy Hallowell: Christianity Today attacks Trump – Should evangelicals like me support or oppose him?

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6117438587001_6117434345001-vs Billy Hallowell: Christianity Today attacks Trump – Should evangelicals like me support or oppose him? fox-news/us/religion/christianity fox-news/politics/trump-impeachment-inquiry fox-news/politics/elections fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/opinion fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/opinion fnc c402de3a-8dea-532a-b312-64a3e1edaddd Billy Hallowell article

The editorial published this week in Christianity Today calling for President Trump to be removed from office highlights the difficult choice facing evangelical Christians like me in determining who to support in the November presidential election.

In the editorial, Christianity Today’s editor-in-chief, Mark Galli, wrote: “The president of the United States attempted to use his political power to coerce a foreign leader to harass and discredit one of the president’s political opponents. That is not only a violation of the Constitution; more importantly, it is profoundly immoral.”

Galli added that Trump “has hired and fired a number of people who are now convicted criminals. He himself has admitted to immoral actions in business and his relationship with women, about which he remains proud. His Twitter feed alone – with its habitual string of mischaracterizations, lies, and slanders – is a near perfect example of a human being who is morally lost and confused.”

TRUMP BLASTS EVANGELICAL MAGAZINE AFTER BLISTERING EDITORIAL CALLING FOR HIS REMOVAL FROM OFFICE

This attack prompted our counterpunching president to tweet: “A far left magazine, or very ‘progressive,’ as some would call it … knows nothing about reading a perfect transcript of a routine phone call and would rather… have a Radical Left nonbeliever, who wants to take your religion & your guns, than Donald Trump as your President. No President has done more for the Evangelical community, and it’s not even close. You’ll not get anything from those Dems on stage. I won’t be reading ET [SIC] again!”

Since there appears to be no chance the Republican-controlled Senate will remove the president from office once he goes on trial following his impeachment by the House, evangelicals will be confronted with this choice when we vote in the next presidential election:

Do we support a painfully brash and unpredictable president who violates our morals but defends some of our values?

Or do we support the presidential candidate nominated by the Democratic Party, which has expressed open disdain for our sincerely held views?

More from Opinion

t’s a complicated scenario, confronting us with two imperfect choices. And since the Democrats are a long way from selecting their nominee, it strikes me as an impossible choice to make until we know who President Trump will be running against and can examine that person’s record and values closely.

In the meantime, I think supporting Trump while simultaneously speaking out against his sometimes disturbing rhetoric is healthy. So is finding areas of praise for the president when you aren’t a fan. Our nation, after all, is called the United States – not the Divided States.

Few political candidates are entirely bad or entirely good. When we step into the voting booth we are sometimes forced to choose between the lesser of two evils.

There’s been no shortage of chaos, drama and debate over whether Trump –  a thrice-married businessman known for his brutal brashness, alleged shady business dealings, and lack of strong religious observance – is worthy of evangelical support.

The evangelical divide is a microcosm of our broader cultural decay. Party politics are dominating our hearts and minds. Nearly everyone is feeling intense pressure to buckle toward one side of the aisle or the other. Evangelicals are no exception.

As a lifelong conservative evangelical who is also a millennial journalist and author, I feel the weight of this paradigm in a particularly pointed way.

I interviewed Trump a number of times before he became president and I’ve written more than 12,000 articles about faith and culture, with many of those stories focusing on the intersection of Christianity and politics.

This is my wheelhouse both personally and professionally, yet I’ve never felt more conflicted about where my allegiances should fall and how my faith should play out at the polls.

While prominent evangelicals duke it out, I’ve found myself living in the gray, attempting to compartmentalize and comprehend where we are. How did we get here? How do we best preserve our witness so that we can hold onto some semblance of dignity in generations to come?

In the process, a number of important questions and concerns have come to mind. As Christians, we’re called to adhere to truth, even if it sometimes positions us against our chosen candidate or party. Yet cultural tribalism has enveloped us into political and social chaos.

And amid the consternation, some questions emerge: Why have so many evangelicals – people who have spent decades fighting moral turpitude among our political and cultural elite – seemingly and abruptly changed course in the Trump era?

Why are so many fair-minded Christians previously capable of seeing the complexities in our candidates and politicians suddenly unable to offer grace and understanding, specifically when doing so is more than warranted?

I don’t have the answers, but I do know that there are four facts about Trump and evangelicals that most people are missing – elements that should force us all to think deeper about our current circumstances.

Trump’s rhetoric should make Christians cringe

Our mission is to bring people to God, not to blindly and inadvertently lead them away. Plainly stated: our silence and excuse-making for Trump speaks volumes.

The latest example of Trump’s disturbing rhetoric came this week when he blasted Rep. Debbie Dingell’s late husband, Rep. John Dingell, and pondered whether Dingell might be “looking up” from hell.

John Dingell was a Michigan Democrat and World War II veteran who served in Congress longer than any other member – from 1955 to 2015. His wife was elected to his House seat after he retired.

There is no defense of Trump’s cruel comment, which Debbie Dingell said was very upsetting as she continues to mourn the loss of her beloved husband. And yet some of the same people who would have spontaneously combusted had former President Barack Obama said the same thing about a former member of Congress ignore it when it comes out of Trump’s mouth, for the sake of political expediency.

Progressives paved this road of apathy and desperation

Much of the critique surrounding evangelicals and Trump is predicated upon liberals’ claims that Christians have simply abandoned our principles. But the reality is much more complex.

A progressive cohort has held disdain for Christian values, either openly mocking or outright criticizing evangelicals’ beliefs about the importance of integrity and values in the public square. This mockery – teamed with an obsessive and oft-times ill-understood view of the separation of church and state – has consistently peppered our political discourse.

Now the same people who held such open disdain when evangelicals wished to see our views reflected in the public square are complaining that Christians have suddenly changed course and are no longer wedded to the morality we once demanded in our politics.

It’s a prime example of what happens when one cries wolf for decades and then gets what he or she endlessly wished for. In many ways, evangelicals are choosing to separate politics from their theology – the very thing that was previously demanded of us.

Cultural messages are eclipsing our values

One doesn’t need to look too far to see that the underbelly of our culture is slowly rotting away. Hopelessness abounds, as we abandon solidified values rooted in truth in exchange for social relativism And Christians, too, have fallen prey to this paradigm.

In 2011, just 30 percent of white evangelicals said “elected officials can still perform their public duties in an ethical manner even if they have committed immoral personal acts.” Somehow, though, that proportion skyrocketed to 72 percent in a 2016 survey.

There are many theories as to why this change unfolded, with some blaming the Trump effect.

Evangelicals are feeling the pressure

Beyond the “terrible options” scenario is the fact that our culture has rapidly changed over the past few years, eschewing traditional values and diminishing core Christian positions. What was once considered a normative perspective can now be disqualifying, with the outrage police working overtime to ensure that everyone complies with culture’s new codes of conduct.

Meanwhile, the Democratic Party has moved to the far, far left on issues like abortion, with Democratic candidates perceived as so extreme that Trump – whether or not he has authentic convictions on these matters – seems like the only viable option.

As I’ve discussed in my books and research, many evangelicals feel like we are being punished or silenced for our biblical worldview, with the power players in the mainstream media, Hollywood and universities doing anything but alleviating those fears.

Many of us wish politics could be like the movies – with clearly identified good guys and bad guys, making it easy to root for the heroes and boo the villains.

But real life isn’t like that – there are good and bad aspects to every candidate and every political party. 

As we move into a campaign year, we will be looking closely at President Trump and the Democrat nominated to run against him to see which imperfect person we think will best serve our nation and support our sincerely held beliefs.

Ivanka Trump says impeachment has ‘energized’ her father — and his 63M supporters

In a new interview, White House senior adviser Ivanka Trump says this week’s “purely partisan” impeachment of her father by the House of Representatives has “energized” him and “his 63 million-plus voters.”

“In fact, the only thing bipartisan was the vote against proceeding forward,” the 38-year-old first daughter tells CBS “Face the Nation” host Margaret Brennan in a teaser trailer release Thursday night. The full conversation will air Dec. 29.

‘THE VIEW’ HOSTS BROWBEAT MELANIA AND IVANKA OVER TRUMP’S JOHN DINGELL ATTACK

Not a single Republican backed the impeachment of the president on either of two charges — abuse of power and obstruction of Congress — in Wednesday’s vote, but a few Democrats sided with the GOP against the action.

SEN. MIKE LEE: TRUMP IMPEACHMENT TRIAL IS ‘A GIGANTIC HOBGOBLIN’ TO ‘SCARED-TO-DEATH’ PELOSI

When asked about the mood of President Trump following the impeachment process, she added, “He said it didn’t even feel like he was being impeached.”

“It is pretty unprecedented that support for impeachment has decreased over time as more information was presented to the American people. It’s decreased, not increased,” she said.

“So with all of this time spent, with all of these witnesses who didn’t have firsthand knowledge, with all of these people that have been paraded in front of the American people, support for this action has decreased. So, you know, I think he sees it for what it is, which is really just raw partisan politics.”

The impeachment process is set to move to the Republican-controlled Senate, where Trump’s allies are likely to vote for acquittal.

Mike Huckabee on Chuck Schumer’s demand for impeachment witnesses: ‘I’m embarrassed for him’

Westlake Legal Group HUckabee- Mike Huckabee on Chuck Schumer's demand for impeachment witnesses: 'I'm embarrassed for him' Talia Kaplan fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/shows/outnumbered-overtime fox-news/politics/trump-impeachment-inquiry fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/media fnc da8740c2-2e60-5790-939b-44b039b54e73 article

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee criticized Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., on Monday for demanding that witnesses be called to testify in the expected Senate impeachment trial of President Trump saying, “I’m embarrassed for him.”

On Sunday, in a letter to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., Schumer called for several current and former Trump administration officials to be subpoenaed to testify. However, during former President Bill Clinton’s impeachment trial in 1999, Schumer roundly dismissed the importance of, and voted against, such witness testimony — suggesting it amounted to “political theater.”

Speaking on “Outnumbered Overtime” Huckabee said, “To quote [climate activist] Greta Thunberg, I would say to Chuck Schumer, ‘How dare you?’ And here is why: He said nothing during the entire time that the House was rejecting any idea that the Republicans would get a chance to hear from key witnesses, whether it was the whistleblower, [ex-FBI investigator] Peter Strzok, [former FBI lawyer] Lisa Page, [former FBI director] James Comey, [onetime CIA Director] John Brennan, go through the whole list, they wouldn’t hear from any of them.”

He added, “And now Chuck Schumer, seriously, is demanding that he gets to call witnesses for this sham? I am embarrassed for him.”

FOX NEWS POLL: TRUMP JOB APPROVAL TICKS UP, VIEWS ON IMPEACHMENT STEADY

“I can’t believe that he would have the audacity to think people will take him seriously, knowing that it is his party that refused to let any witnesses that are truly material witnesses to this process be heard over in the House Judiciary Committee,” Huckabee added.

“Outnumbered Overtime” host Harris Faulkner pointed out the results of a new Fox News poll, which showed weeks of congressional hearings and debate have failed to move the electorate on impeachment. At the same time, the poll showed, approval of President Trump’s job performance has climbed three points.

When asked whether Trump should get involved in the impeachment process if and when it moves to the Senate, Huckabee answered, “Not that much. I think he keeps doing what he’s doing.”

Huckabee then listed some of Trump’s economic accomplishments, which he said includes the stock market highs and The United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement, which “is going to produce hundreds of thousands of jobs, if not millions.”

He also noted “the wage increases that everyone has gotten and the fact that women and minorities, Hispanics, blacks, have all had the highest job levels in history.”

“There are some wonderful stories to tell,” Huckabee said. “Donald Trump has gotten rid of seven regulations for every one that’s been passed. That’s a big part of what makes the economy soar right now. He’s got plenty to talk about.”

I think [Trump should] let surrogates, other people talk about the impeachment process because most Americans have already made up their minds and if there’s a dozen or so in the entire country that haven’t, I doubt that anything anyone says is going to swing them one way or the other.”

Fox News’ Brooke Singman and Dana Blanton contributed to this report.

Reacting to a Fox News Poll released Sunday, former New Hampshire Gov. John Sununu said on Monday that “the most important thing” that he noticed was “the divide on the agenda of the Democrats that have been polled.”

Speaking on “America’s Newsroom” on Monday, Sununu, who is also former White House chief of staff under President George H. W. Bush, noted that half of those polled, “want to restore and reform the system and half of them want to drastically change it.”

He added, “What that tells me is that no matter who the Democrats nominate, half of the Democratic voters are not going to be happy with the agenda of that candidate and what they’ve got to figure out is how they’re going to resolve that great divide in this whole process.”

“I think it’s a real problem and you don’t hear many of them seriously talking about how to cross that chasm,” Sununu went on to say.

The poll released Sunday showed Former Vice President Joe Biden remaining the Democratic primary voters’ preferred presidential candidate. It also revealed that more voters think Biden is capable of beating President Trump than feel that way about any of his main competitors — and he performs best in potential 2020 matchups.

In addition, Biden has the largest number of Democrats, as well as voters overall, saying his positions on the issues are “about right.”

When asked how long he thinks Biden will continue to stay on top, Sununu answered: “He’s been there a long time. He showed more staying power than people expected.”

“Unless he has a disaster in places like Iowa and New Hampshire, I suspect he may stay there all the way through,” Sununu added.

FOX NEWS POLL: BIDEN STILL LEADS DEMOCRATIC RACE AS WARREN DROPS

Seventy-seven percent of Democratic primary voters think Biden can beat Trump in next year’s presidential election, up from 68 percent in October. Smaller majorities say the same about Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders (60 percent), Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren (59 percent), and former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg (55 percent). Forty-eight percent think South Bend, Ind. Mayor Pete Buttigieg can win — an 18-point jump from 30 percent in October.

Running down the Democratic race: Biden leads with 30 percent, followed by Sanders at 20 percent. Warren returns to third with 13 percent, down from a high of 22 percent in October.

Next, it’s Buttigieg (7 percent), Bloomberg and Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar (5 percent each), Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard and entrepreneur Andrew Yang (3 percent apiece), and New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker (2 percent). The remaining candidates garner 1 percent or less.

Nearly half of those currently backing a candidate, 49 percent, say they could change their mind.

“We’ve seen dramatic changes after Iowa and New Hampshire historically. And I suspect you’ll see the same thing this year,” Sununu said on Monday.

Marc Thiessen reacts to Comey’s Sunday interview: ‘It’s kind of a non-apology apology’

Westlake Legal Group Thiessen- Marc Thiessen reacts to Comey's Sunday interview: 'It’s kind of a non-apology apology' Talia Kaplan fox-news/shows/americas-newsroom fox-news/person/james-comey fox-news/news-events/russia-investigation fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/media fnc b44255ec-2f35-572b-aa3e-319263ebc430 article

Fox News contributor Marc Thiessen said on Monday that former FBI Director James Comey issued “a non-apology apology” during his interview on “Fox News Sunday,” in which Comey said the recently released Justice Department Inspector General’s report on the launch of the FBI’s Russia investigation and their use of the surveillance process showed that he was “overconfident” when he defended his former agency’s use of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA).

“He essentially said, ‘Well we were sloppy,’” Thiessen, a former White House speechwriter, said on “America’s Newsroom” on Monday morning.

“No, you weren’t sloppy,” Thiessen said. “The inspector general found the FBI falsified evidence in the FISA process.”

COMEY ADMITS ‘I WAS WRONG’ ON FISA CONDUCT, REMAINS DEFIANT ON DOSSIER IN TENSE INTERVIEW

“How do you accidentally falsify evidence?” Thiessen asked. “It can’t. It has to be intentional, it’s not sloppy.”

Comey’s interview on “Fox News Sunday” came days after Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s report and testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee detailed concerns that included 17 “significant errors and omissions” by the FBI’s investigative team when applying for a FISA warrant to monitor former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page. Horowitz referred “the entire chain of command” to the FBI and DOJ for “how to assess and address their performance failures” during the probe, which was conducted while Comey was in charge.

“He’s right, I was wrong,” Comey said about how the FBI used the FISA process, adding, “I was overconfident as director in our procedures,” and that what happened “was not acceptable.”

Comey, however, remained defiant on former British spy Christopher Steele’s anti-Trump dossier, which served as the basis for FISA warrants against Page. Horowitz’s report stated that government attorneys were hesitant to approve a FISA warrant application until they relied on unverified information from Steele. That information also was used in subsequent renewals for the FISA warrant.

“Comey told the American people repeatedly that the Steele dossier was not essential to the FISA warrants,” Thiessen said on Monday.

He added, “The inspector general found that it quote ‘played a central and essential role in getting the FISA warrants.’ In other words, if it had not been for the Steele dossier, there would have been no FISA warrant, there would have been no surveillance. So James Comey has a lot of explaining to do and he didn’t do a good job of it on Sunday.”

On Monday morning, Thiessen also referenced U.S. Attorney John Durham, who is conducting a wide-ranging investigation of the origins of the Trump-Russia probe. Durham released a rare statement last week saying he disagrees with conclusions of the so-called FISA report that the probe’s launch largely complied with the Department of Justice and FBI policies.

“We spent two-and-a-half years, tens of millions of dollars chasing a conspiracy theory that Donald Trump had somehow colluded with Russia to steal the election and it turned out it wasn’t true,” Thiessen said on “America’s Newsroom.”

“Americans want to get to the bottom of how that happened and James Comey was at the center of it and we’re going to see from John Durham whether there was bias in the FBI or not.”
