Whoopi Goldber, co-host of The View, sounded off during a segment of the program on Tuesday, stating that Fox News host Tucker Carlson was ripping a page straight out of George Orwell’s classic dystopian tale, 1984, for his coverage of the new footage released in the January 6 Capitol riot. Because the left has never, ever, in the history of the movement, attempted to rewrite the past. Insert an eye roll here if you wouldn’t mind.
According to Breitbart, Goldberg said, “Last night, Tucker Carlson took a page from George Orwell’s 1984 and told his viewers to reject the evidence of their eyes and ears.”
On the Monday evening edition of Carlson’s program, the host said, “The crowd was enormous. A small percentage of them were hooligans. They committed vandalism, you’ve seen their pictures again and again, but the overwhelming majority weren’t. They were peaceful. They were orderly and meek. These were not insurrectionists. They were sightseers.”
Joy Behar then started flapping her gums, stating, “The audience is laughing.”
Goldberg then added, “How can you not? Especially after you’ve, you know, heard some of his emails about Dominion and all the stuff going on. I mean, I don’t know what he is playing at, but people saw what they saw. They saw what they saw, and they’ve seen what’s gone down with it. And no matter what, you can’t put this monkey back in the cage. You can’t. This was insurrection. It just was what it was, so people are very upset. His viewers, maybe they’re going to buy it, I don’t know.”
Whoopi isn’t the only one trying to ridicule the coverage of the J6 incident from Carlson.
According to the Washington Post, CNN host Anderson Cooper also mocked the Fox News firebrand.
