  1. Ari shouldn't be carrying water for Sucker Tardson. That's one of the right's strategies : "he did it, it's really bad but not impeachable". We even heard the pathetic " he's trolling the media" as if the so called commander- in-chief's job, you know the guy with the finger on the nuclear button, was ever to "troll the media", as if president was a game and the so called president's words had no value. So these people are ready to go extra lies to defend the liar-in-chief. Do not give them the benefit of the doubt.

  2. Carlson and the like can not be impeached or indicted like Trump and cohorts but they can share in the blame and shame and will … many already do … and many will have conversions …

  3. The Constitution has given the president imperial authority. Sadly, no one in the 18th century foresaw a criminal psychopath being chosen as emperor.

  4. Keep in mind, Ari, that Carlson has a very flexible view of what is an "impeachable" offense – depending upon who is being accused. If just the thought of having another nation help his election chances had crossed his mind, President Obama would have had to be impeached – in Carlson's opinion.

  5. So is it right that America would lock someone up for the rest of their LIFE…..because they had some weed on them, when in some states it's legal?? ๐Ÿค”

  6. Featuring tbe cretinous Tucker Carlson or paying even cursory attention to his opinion piece lends him a level of credibility he does not possess.

  7. MSNBC: Another Pocahontas lie as Video appears to contradict Warren's suggestion that school fired her over pregnancy! Who in the world would want to impregnate Pocahontas anyway!
    Yuk ๐Ÿ˜ฒ

  8. The Democrat Party is hilarious. AC is a complete airhead. Schiff is a total creepy guy. Sander is in the wrong party (the Democratic Socialist party already exists). Nancy looks like she issuffering from old lady syndrome. Elizabeth Warren is a total liar.

  9. Absolutely ridiculous to give faux and Carlson's word a debate APPALLING!! If this was 44 faux would be going after him as hard as they are defending 45's lies and corruption.IN WHICH THEY ARE COMPLICIT. The constitution is fact STOP MAKING THIS CRIME A LOOPHOLE. LOCK THEM UP BEFORE THE STUPID MEDIA FALL FOR ANOTHER TRICK BY FAUX AND 2020 WILL BE OVER FOR THOSE OF US WHO WANT TO LIVE WITHOUT THIS CORRUPTION. THE LAST 3 YEARS HAS BEEN ABOUT THE RICH AND MEDIA RATINGS, NOT THE AVERAGE CITIZEN WHO HAVE ENTRUSTED MAN TO DO WHAT'S BEST FOR AMERICA!!!๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ‘บ๐Ÿ‘บ

  10. This is at least the most honest defense of Trump's actions that I've heard so far (which makes it all the more amazing that it's coming from Carlson), but it's still ridiculous. It can be a reasonable argument for crimes and indiscretions committed in a president's personal life, but not for ongoing abuses of the power of the presidency.

  11. Well put by both Mr.Carlson and Melber. One question ultimately is : Is the Ukraine proposal the high-crime (or misdemeanor) or is it linked to EVERYTHING else he's managed to tangle himself into?
    Hear the facts then judge.
    Get some popcorn, grab a veggie then sit back and watch the show.

  12. This is the new fox talking point and dont fall for it. Its letting some of the air out of the tire. If an american is corrupt you investigate this in america you dont ask a foreign country to do it

  13. This is a last-ditch firewall argument. Push past it. Make Mitch and his boys defend brushing this off, because they can't.

  14. How is POTUS the most powerful man in the world?To many rules in America to many courts and judges sticking their noses in

  15. 0:34 It's been a long time since I've agreed with Tucker Carlson on anything…. but he's right here : there is no way to spin this as a good idea.

  16. whatever the government is doing, if it can put MSNBC and Fox on the same side of ANY argument favoring the US Constitution, how bad could it be? those two are generally on the opposite side of most arguments and both claim to adhere to the Constitution, which is clearly bull

  17. If Obama had done this, Republicans would have called it impeachable to the moon and back.
    Opinion matters. It is only an opinion that a sitting president cannot be indicted. Not established law, yet in Trumpville they have talked about it as if it is settled law. And people believe it! Yes, opinion matters.

  18. So, tucker is not advocating for impeachment. Whatโ€™s your point? He says it does not meet the standard for impeachment.

  19. This is how you go down in history as a traitor to your country. Anyone who supported Trump was either stupid, immoral or ignorant. Anyone who is still supporting Trump is all three.

  20. For the president's actions to be " wrong" and like those of a "corrupt" country….yeah it's impeachable. Tucker is trying to stay ever the contrarian. That's fine. He's still not right though.

  21. Did Trump give China's socialcreditcrimes a pass for his opponent to be found out instead. And is bidenpodesta's corrupt self all up in China's, India's and Ukraine's crimes (etc)– that so happens to be mixed with msnbc/cnn/clintonpodestabiden?

  22. 1:37. This dude must be thinking that he's talking to a bunch of children. Don't be deflecting your past three years to your audience. Little boy.

  23. It's the "no excuse" excuse. Tucker is wimping out on his position about Trump because he wants to keep some semblance of not being bias.

  24. If the people in our fine land leave this madman to govern our laws, and represent our country, we honestly deserve whatever we get in the end. This is madness, people! If you didn't see that he is a no good without the skills it takes to position our country for success, I feel bad for you. If you didn't see that he treads with severe special and self interest in EVERY interaction he has with anyone political or otherwise, you are blind, and again I feel badly for you. But worse for our future. Wiseup. Dude is a crook, a narcissist, and a racist bigoted bully. I don't understand… Trump-humpers and right wing lunatics are the same ones chanting "lock her up", and will gladly point out the flaws and criminal / moral (miss)conduct of anyone of opposing belief, yet back a complete maniac, clearly. #YAALLNUTSASHELL

  25. Can't almost not wait for next season to this show. Rumours say they will sending this from a real prison. Trump have still the main roll

  26. This Tucker Carlson type is really a MORON. Any criminal will say that "it is hard to see that something is a crime" ……..LOL bringing this stupid message in the hope that somebody believes what he is saying…….

  27. Democrats: You can't go after our corrupt politicians, that is an impeachable offense. But we can get foreign nations to compile the dossier on you so that we can use it against you.

  28. This IS the definition of the pot calling the kettle black. I really wish the other candidates, plus the media, would start throwing Trump's 'corruption' rhetoric straight back at him, with extra 'heat' on it !!

  29. Tucker obviously hasn't considered that Trump violated the Emoluments clause, a clear and concise ground for impeachment.

  30. Iโ€™m only interested in impeachment. Not gonna waste my time pretending thereโ€™s two sides to this argument just to fit in. I get that itโ€™s trendy to break bread with bigots. Itโ€™s good for ratings ect ect. Gonna pass though. Iโ€™ll be back when the impeachment begins. If it ever happens.

  31. The problem is the Barr justice department is already corrupt. If trump wonโ€™t follow the law, continues to obstruct oversight and the president is not indictable then the only choice left is impeachment. What tucker Carlson is missing is that all of these norms are important. Trump being trump is corruption.

  32. The question the Gop & Dems have before themselves, is if the POTUS is above the law. The President has committed a very serious crime, that is undisputed.

  33. The arguments against impeachment all hinge on the assumption of presidential legal primacy.. no one is above the law.. no one.. particularly this huckster

  34. Mitch Mcconnel's wife is siphoning off tens of millions of dollars of US tax payer money (OUR tax dollars) from the USAย treasury (taxes paid from across all states) to benefit mitch Mcconnel's political career in Kentucky.ย  Why isn't Trump investigating THAT CORRUPTION !!!???

  35. TRUMP DERANGEMENT SYNDROME. https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&cd=4&ved=2ahUKEwip_pXOkIrlAhXws1kKHWjpDAwQFjADegQIAhAB&url=https%3A%2F%2F710wor.iheart.com%2Ffeatured%2Fmark-simone%2Fcontent%2F2019-03-09-the-list-of-president-trumps-accomplishments-so-far%2F&usg=AOvVaw3IhVX0L1LMIj2RHYAQpZf6

  36. please, Ari, don't go down the faux news path of normalizing trump-pence regime, even though carlson might have said now this and that, he's still all for trump-pence. but we don't want you Ari to facilitate normalizing of the abnormal! p.s. whole trump-pence regime should have been impeached AND REMOVED months and, even, years ago, but with repukkkes the situation has been in stalemate since ever, that's why repukkkes must be destroyed as they deserve to be destroyed!

  37. politicians want to distract the public away from real issues like TERM LIMITS, pedophiles , "organ stealing" universal health care, low wages, endless war, lies, bribes, national debt /interest , rigged elections, Epsteins' customers and accomplices, Clinton murders, a pay to play state dept., inflation, a non-backed dollar, gold and silver price suppression/rigged markets, ROBBING THE POOR TO GIVE TO THE RICH, etc.

  38. Carlson's propaganda has helped sustain a treasonous, racist and tyrannical government. American patriots do not forget these kinds of things.

  39. Wow, a Liberal who has a bit of common sense. Tucker has a way of surprising the left by being fair, even when he disagrees with 'em. Even Jimmy Dore occasionally praises Carlson. Interesting.

  40. Carlson should read the Constitution. The clauses relating to impeachment are very clear. Legal experts such as Vance, McQuade, and Laurence Tribe… have stated them repeatedly. The buffoon is guilty of high crimes against the nation. Any other president would have been impeached long time ago if they had done one tenth of what the buffoon-grifter did in mafia-style. The GOP mafia should be indicted for complicity and massive cover-up.

  41. Time Stamp: 0:51 We are already Just another Corrupt Country!! Where have you all Been under a Rock for the Last 50 Years???????

  42. Calling fir a civil war, joking about staying in office past his term, lying nonstop, obstructing justice. IMPEACH

  43. Lol, I just read that 310 people in America are shot per day and of those 100 are fatal. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ–•๐Ÿพyou people are insane.

  44. Ari, USC 30121 is now debatable?? What about Article 1 of the constitution section 9 emoluments clause?? Debatable?? You want to put on your little show and have your little trial…. and that means what … trump sodomizes a 5 year old, should he go to prison, is debatable too?? Are there any lines anymore??

  45. Do you remember Victoria Nuland (Mrs. Kagan) and the Ukraine?
    What if current President is trying to clean up the old mess that was left behind by the former "folks" (as O'bama would say) left behind!
    Biden.. I'm biding my time ,, watching the clean sweep
    Transparency…

  46. Read what the founding fathers say
    is impeachable. trump has done MORE than enough to be impeached. Just look it up yourself.

  47. Tucker Carlson is a partisan hack. If Obama had done what Trump did, heโ€™d be one of the first calling for impeachment and crying about how Obama broke the law.

  48. we live in an unfair world, where such animosity and hatred is spewed so regularly by everyone, its a toxic mind set, like outrage / cancel culture. just to turn on people within seconds, condemning and dismissing their life , people like that have no honor

  49. You lied about Russia you lied about Ukraine this is a coup attempt. Want Trump out of office? Give Americans a better alternative in 2020 or see him leave in 2024 https://taibbi.substack.com/p/were-in-a-permanent-coup
