Tucker Carlson: Trump’s Eclipse Stare Was “Perhaps The Most Impressive Thing Any President Has Ever Done”

The HuffPost reports:

Life imitated satire on Monday night when Fox News host Tucker Carlson offered effusive praise for President Donald Trump’s ability to stare at the sun during the eclipse without protective lenses. “In a move that is not a complete surprise, he looked at the sun without any glasses,” Carlson gushed. “Perhaps the most impressive thing any president has ever done.”

Here’s just one example of the satire that appear on Twitter in advance of Carlson’s show.

    Lincoln freeing slaves vs Trump looking at sun? Trump wins! So much winning! Thanks Tucky! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/191d6619ca744c20b5ed040ae1ce3a3cc2c2110b10de2b9c5fa47b4c1bb76c84.jpg

  • Rex

    Desperate to find anything impressive about Trump.

  • Ninja0980

    I wish Jon Stewart was still on the air.
    He could rip apart this fool like he did on Crossfire but good.

  • Todd20036

    Anderson Cooper was right. Trump could take a dump on his desk and Tucker would defend it.

    • olandp

      Defend it hell, he’d lap it up looking for gold…

    • Dagoril

      An impressive dump! The best dump ever! We should put it in a shrine!

      • kanehau

        There isn’t a shrine magnificent enough for such a dump! Sad.

        • For Pence: Erect a statue of Trump looking at the eclipse.

    • Jeffg166

      Tucker would describe the flora, leather, woody notes in it at length.

    • mikeinftl

      It would be a bigly dump!

    • BockMcMillan

      Tucker seems to be easily impressed.

    • JCF

      Tucker, and 25% of the U.S. electorate. They’d gobble it up, Divine-in-Pink-Flamingos style.

  • Kevin Perez

    The bar has been set, it is now below ground.

  • Michael R
  • Stogiebear

    An idiot does something idiotic and the spokes-idiots speak idiotically.

    I can’t wait to see the monumental painting of “Donald Trump Looking at the Sun” to be hanged in the Metropolitan Museum of Art next to “George Washington Crossing the Delaware.”

    • Reality.Bites

      I can’t wait to see.. Donald Trump… be hanged

      (A good editor can refine even the best writer’s prose with judicious cuts. ;))

      • wmforr

        But he’s certainly not hung.

  • Harveyrabbit

    If I had to look at all these reprobates every day I’d stare at an eclipse.

  • Tomcat

    Yes, what a role model to our children. Tucker you are a f-ing idiot.

    • Frostbite

      He really is, showing that even idiots can get jobs on television!

  • Halou

    North Korea called, they want their cult of personality bullshit back.

    • Tawreos

      Did you hear about the time Dear Leader Trump shot 18 holes in one in one round of golf?

      • Halou

        I’d believe it. He has spent enough of his time in office playing golf, he must be a master at it by now.

      • BobSF_94117

        I believe that was an uncle, not a round of golf.

  • calvin

    Anderson Cooper was right. Trump could take a dump on his desk and Tucker would defend it.

    • Frostbite

      Defend it? He’d eat that shit up! 💩🍽

  • djcoastermark

    Yes, Impressively stupid.

  • Talisman

    Wow…staying on that ship even as it sinks beneath the waves…

    • Acronym Jim

      “Tucker! Get in the lifeboat!”

      “Wait a minute, these deck chairs aren’t going to arrange themselves. We’ll be saved by Feng Shui.”

  • Halou

    “Impressive” in the same way that chugging down a liter and a half of vodka in one go is impressive?

    • Jonathan Smith

      we SHOULD be.

  • SilasMarner

    “Most impressive thing a president has ever done”? Is this guy a total idiot? I mean, when every news outlet has told us NOT to look at the sun without protection and then the idiot Mr. Orange does JUST that!!! They are both morons. Too bad Mr. Orange didn’t go blind, then at least he wouldn’t be able to see his phone to post ridiculous tweets.

  • geoffalnutt

    Self-inflicted blindness – is that considered a “pivot”?

  • liondon#iamnotatraitor

    Did he smirk when he said it? Was it concervatwat “humor “? I refuse to watch.

  • boatboy_srq

    Impressive? He looks like a twelve year old doing that thing he was told not to do. “See? You aren’t the boss of me! I can do what I – WAAAAH! My eyes hurt!”

  • Mark Née Fuzz

    The title for biggest a-hole at Fox is always up for grab, but the ever confused looking Tucker Carlson may be the dumbest.

  • Gustav2

    Mocked before he did the mockable. #sad

  • madknits

    This is beginning to sound like the praise that is given to the Great Leaders of North Korea.

    • TuuxKabin

      the red pussy hat you made came in handy when the temp plunged during the ‘clipse yesterday. Four degrees it dropped.

  • go4cats

    What is the next level above “ass kissing?” Whatever it is, Tucker has found it and has made it his own.

    • JW Swift

      Elevating posterior-smooching to an art form.

  • BobSF_94117

    He wants it so bad.

  • Dagoril

    He’s not going to bang you, Tuck. That tiny little dick can’t bang anything.

    • agcons

      He couldn’t even finger bang Tuckie properly with those short, vulgarian fingers.

    • bambinoitaliano

      Not if Sean Hannity has anything to say about it. Once he wipe that Cheeto dust off his mouth that is.

  • agcons

    Carlson needs to wear more appropriate clothing and accessories, such as a gigantic polka–dotted bow tie and a propeller beanie.

  • Tatonka

    He should follow that up be taking a bath with a toaster. Then I’d be impressed.

    • Reality.Bites

      Bathing would anger Bannon and the others at Breitbart.

      • ceeenbee

        Bathing is really a cosmopolitan, libtard thing to do. Real men roll around in the dust like rhinos.

  • Charlie 2001

    Hey! Give the guy a break. While it might not be the most impressive thing any President has ever done, it is for Donald Trump.

  • Lindoro Almaviva

    Trump could, at this point:

    1. shoot someone at point blank and Trumpers would say it was the most accurate and presidential shooting they have ever seen. They would praise the way he handled the gun, his stance, the elegance of his staring and the quality of the gun.

    2. Force an 80-year-old woman to the floor and shit on her face. Trumpers will admire the size of his ass, the perfect proportions of the turd, the magnificence of his butthole and how incredibly it is for someone his age to shit so much and without the assistance of heavy fiber. They will say it is the most presidential shit they have ever seen and will wonder why has never a president done such a thing ever.

    3. Defend white supremasists, the KKK and Neo-Nazis.. oh wait.

  • AtticusP
  • Jonathan Smith
  • bambinoitaliano

    So brave. Such courage. Deserving of a Purple Heart. Bone spur be damn!

  • ByronK

    Is there such a thing as sympathetic dementia?

    • TuuxKabin

      not here, not for him.

  • DaveMiller135

    I don’t know what the fuss is about. Trump is clearly squinching his eyes very tightly, as if to make a pinhole camera out of his entire head.

    • Reality.Bites

      So that would be a pinhead camera, yes?

  • Cackalaquiano

    Carlson would like to think he’s in the same league with Rachel Maddow and others. 🙄

    • Jonathan Smith

      ” would like to think”

    • TuuxKabin

      more like the disney film, 20,000 leagues beneath the sea. his vision is blurred. brain too.

  • bambinoitaliano

    This is the best way to spin the story of the Secret Service is out of budget. No personnel to pass on a pair of eclipse glasses or shielding the shit gibbon’s eyes.

    • DaMoldBrok

      They most likely had the glasses, just couldn’t care enough to give them to him.

      That Freudian thing? Hoping that he would be stupid enough to look at the sun long enough? To burn out his retina’s? Blind himself? Gotta love the Secret Service!

  • vorpal 😼

    If he really wants to impress Tucker, Trump should take a flying jump off of a really tall cliff.

  • barrixines

    That Trump knew where to look in the sky is quite impressive. It must have been one of his lucid days.

  • Jon Doh

    Someone should have handed Trump a magnifying glass so he could have seen the eclipse better.

    • Mike_in_the_Tundra

      He could have used Melania’s. That would be the one she uses to find his dick.

  • Bluto

    This is going full blown inauguration crowd spectacle. The event itself is trivial but clowns like tuck are turning it into gold level absurd comedy.

  • Thorn Spike

    What’s impressive is the fact that Tucker can get up and dress himself every morning.

  • AdamTh

    … and millions of Americans think shit on Faux is real news. This country is FUCKED!

  • Baylee Peach

    Is Tucker Carlson a sycophant or a boot-licker? I can’t decide!

  • northern_neighbour

    Hey, Carlson! Why don’cha Tucker up your crinkled little crap hole before you blow your stellar brain-fart out the horse’s rear end, d’y’all hear now ‘Pucker’, rhymes with F***er.

    What freakin’ Moron from the Alternative Which Universe Are U From?

    You and Frothy Santorum both come up with the ‘Dangest’ Raspberry Zingers that drive all relevance or logic to A sudden, sullen & entirely mute eye-roll to the empty skies above.

    #Douchebags otta wipe

  • -M-

    Right, out of all the policies, legislation, wars, treaties, and speeches in US history what’s really impressive is something dumb that anybody can do.

  • Len Ricci

    I’d be more impressed if he said something… anything… coherent and useful.

  • William

    Remember when W Bush rode the Segway? The still photos used showed him riding, wiping out and then “getting back on the horse”. Except that the first and third photos were exactly the same.

    • TuuxKabin

      And his ol’ man, at a check out counter in a supermarket, amazed at the scanners used to tally the purchase. Looking like man discovering fire. Dolts. All of ’em.

  • madscntst

    Well, to be fair to Tucker, looking straight at the sun is the most impressive thing THIS president has done since taking office.

  • Renfield

    Tucker is amazing. Very talented. On AGT a few weeks ago I saw him actually sing Tip-toe through the Tulips with trump’s dick in his mouth. Of course we’re talking about trump’s dick so gotta deduct a few points for that.

  • mikeinftl

    When I saw this I was reminded of turkeys who when it rains look up and open their mouths and then drown.

  • JWC

    Unfortunately Mr Carlson is quite right Given a review of all that Trump has accomplished , staring,unaided, at the sun is very impressive. Right uo there with how he proudly shows off his signature like a little boy

  • goofy_joe

    New low Tucker, and that’s saying something! You’re defending a boob, and you have to know it. You have to…right?

  • Jean-Marc in Canada
  • jo gerardo

    I’m gonna get Carlson to size up my weiner.

  • JCF

    I got nuthin’.

    Any ideas how to get out of BizarroWorld? Anyone? Anyone? Mueller???

  • wmforr

    Trump tweet:
    Many people are saying that Hillary Clinton and Barrack Obama were responsible for the dragon that ate the sun yesterday. Fortunately, I chased the dragon away, saving the ENTIRE PLANET in the process.

  • andrew

    The bar has been set so low that a video of Trump tying his shoes would be hailed as an amazing presidential accomplishment.
