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.
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?
