Carlson Called Out by Crenshaw for Cheap Shot

Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) has all my respect for his service.

As far as a politician goes, I have been on the fence with him for some time now.

Clearly, that is not the case with Carlson, who slammed Crenshaw by comparing him to the late-Senator John McCain (R-AZ).

While I don’t have a problem with the comparison, there is a bit of an issue with the insult attached to it.

Eyepatch McCain

Crenshaw lost his eye in service to this country in one of the most elite fightin units this country has in its arsenal.

Tucker Carlson has never served this country, so any insult involving that missing eye is off-limits to me.

Carlson, however, did have a point, in that Crenshaw is insinuating that anyone against the $40 billion aid package to Ukraine is pro-Russia, and that is clearly not the case.

I am all for helping Ukraine push Russia back, but the United States cannot be the only country bucking up, especially when the United States is in dire financial straits.

To that point, Carlson stated, “Why is Congress so focused on Ukraine but you can’t find baby formula?

“According to Congressman Dan Crenshaw of Texas, asking questions like that, or really any questions at all, thinking you are a citizen, makes you’ pro-Russia.'”

He concluded, “You know, the more I think about it, it takes a lot of gall for eyepatch McCain to attack moms who are worried about baby formula as ‘pro-Russia.'”

Crenshaw fired back, “You hurl juvenile insults when you know you’ve lost the debate. I stand by every word I said in my interview with Trey Gowdy.”

Let’s hear from you guys on this one. Do you think Carlson went too far with the “eyepatch” comment or are you okay with it?

And what do you think of Crenshaw putting a pro-Russia tag on anyone arguing against the continuation of aid to Ukraine?

  1. Tucker was out of line with the eye patch dig, but Crenshaw is out of touch with the average American . America first and then aid!! We simply cannot support the entire planet ! Build the wall !

    1. I agree with you whole heartily. We are worried about protecting Ukraine’s border, but ours is wide open ! How about a little America First for a change? I don’t like the name calling, be professional and nail your points. Appreciate Crenshaw’s service to this USA, but not a fan of his political advice.

    2. I totally agree! We cannot attempt to support the world, and let our own babies go without food!

  2. He needs to be horsebwhiped for suggesting that America IS NUMBER. 1 you always take care of yours BEFORE others. He’s a MORON

  3. Tucker was out of line with the eye patch dig, but he’s absolutely right about Crenshaw!! We shouldn’t be bailing out the Democrats’ money pit when we are drowning in inflation and we have homeless people (many are vets) and babies needing to be fed

  4. I think Crenshaw & Carlson should act like the 2 men claim to be, stop letting the OTHERS divide our party so they can keep control.

  5. Personally when any adults makes such comments my feeling is grow up but then I feel the same way about the one who is the target of any insult. With so many words in the English language all we adults can do is revert to grade school insults? I’ve been insulted and cruel for so long o no longer feel the anger and hate spewed at me. That’s why I say what I did. As adult why can’t we grow up and quit allowing so called adults from pushing our buttons. Let’s get the real business of life taken care of!

  6. He could have left off the eye patch reference, but giving instead of giving Ukraine money we don’t have, we should give them the fighter jets they asked for.

  7. The eye patch comment was totally unnecessary. But I do question why we are not helping our own “fighters” that put their lives on the line for THIS COUNTRY. We have vets that can barely get into the VA for any treatment, vets that are living on the streets, Ukraine needs help fighting the Russians but IS THE US THE ONLY COUNTRY THAT IS CONTINUALLY SENDING MONEY, where does the buck stop and when do we take care of our own??????

  8. Tucker was indeed out of line with his comment. Crenshaw served our country admirably and two-bit comments about his war injury are not acceptable. Having said that, I have had second, third and even fifth thoughts about Crenshaw as a member of Congress. Originally, I was for him, however, either his opinions have changed or I misunderstood him at the outset because I do agree that he is more like John McCain than a thoughtful Republican. He is wishy-washy about too many of the points that matter to me. I am a proud conservative who loves my country and its Constitution and am rabid about wanting to rid us of the liberals who would destroy this wonderful country and its freedoms.

  9. Ukraine is with the blood of their people and especially the bravery of their soldiers have wounded the Russian bear weakening it with their blood. Although we have problems here we should support them and if we can’t with financial aid with weaponry. The illegal immigrants flooding our borders should go back to their homelands and fight to free them of the cartels and dictators who like Putin are in power. I’m 82 and a young relative once asked me who I thought we would fight the next war Russia or China. My answer to him ( A wounded bear will growl and run a fire-breathing dragon is harder to kill ) UKRAINE is dealing with the Bear sometime in the future we will have to deal with the dragon who already has us in its claws with the help of some of our leaders. God save Ukraine and God save us.

  10. Name calling is never a good idea, but Crenshaw shouldn’t sacrifice Americans for Ukraine. Are we the only country giving aid? We never hear how much other countries are doing for them. Our country is hurting, we have got to start taking care of our own first. How much baby formula was sent to Ukraine? How much is sitting at the border? Why are Americans expected to suffer for something we shouldn’t be involved in. They are NOT a NATO country, we are not obligated to do this, other than Dems are out to bankrupt this country and make themselves look good. Crenshaw needs to take a step back and think about what this is doing to the people that elected him.

  11. Tucker was way wrong for the “eyepatch insult. It had no place or served any purpose in the conversation. But then Dan is wrong as well to believe that if you are against aid to Ukraine that you must be pro-Russia. Not true at all. We can’t police the world or send money we don’t have. We’re experiencing the highest inflation since the 80s. I hate to see what is happening in Ukraine. But believing in taking care of the USA first doesn’t make me pro-Russian. And Dan should understand that.
