Tucker Carlson Establishes Himself As The Chief Advocate For MAGA

Carlson exhibits a very nascent understanding of the situation.  He criticizes not the MAGA agenda but the failure of its primary messenger at implementing it. Further, he rightly recognizes that the president, his administration and the MAGA movement have faced tremendous opposition right from election night two years ago. As it became clear that the procession of Hillary Clinton from Democratic nominee to president-elect had been stopped, forces on both sides of the proverbial aisle, whether conspiring or Democrats taking an active and Republicans a passive role, “withdrew into a defensive crouch,” as Carlson put it, to oppose the new administration’s agenda.

Leave the Democratic Party?  They’re more likely to depart America and move to China.
