      Tucker Carlson is usually quick to go after critics of President Donald Trump on his nightly Fox News show.

      But in a new interview with conservative Swiss magazine Die Weltwoche published on December 4, 2018, , the Fox Prime Time “Tucker Carlson Tonight” host called out Trump himself for his boastfulness and for failing to keep his promises to voters.

      His chief promises were that he would build the wall, de-fund Planned Parenthood and repeal Obamacare, and he hasn’t done any of those things,” said Carlson, per The Washington Post.

      Carlson said he’d “come to believe” Trump’s role was “not as a conventional president who promises to get certain things achieved to the Congress and then does.”

      I don’t think he’s capable,” Carlson explained. “I don’t think he’s capable of sustained focus. I don’t think he understands the system. I don’t think the Congress is on his side. I don’t think his own agencies support him. ”

      Carlson said it was “mostly” Trump’s fault that he hadn’t been able to deliver on his pledges, because “you really have to understand how” the legislative process works and “be very focused on getting it done.” He pointed to Trump's failure to gather a competent core staff at the White House, or in his cabinet noting that the "revolving door" which is innately a source on instability now shows signs of coming off its hinges and that is "downright dangerous."

      Trump “knows very little about the legislative process, hasn’t learned anything, hasn’t surrounded himself with people that can get it done, hasn’t done all the things you need to do so. It’s mostly his fault that he hasn’t achieved those things. He clearly does not take the job seriously,” he added

      Instead, Carlson suggested Trump’s role had been “to begin the conversation” on issues such as immigration — which the conservative TV host has frequently and fervently railed against but that this was "hardly the stuff that builds a proud legacy."

          I agree these statements will likely be more of a surprise to Trump than anyone else who has followed Tucker over the years. He is somewhat more of a Consertative Libertarian than he is a traditational Republican.


          Trump is an unusual person for a President in that he is a totally flawed person as a human being, but he is also one of those people we have all met where a little bit of knowledge can be dangerous in that if he know a little bit, he thinks he is the smartest man on earth on the subject. Congress operates on multiple levels, it is much more complicated than what you learn from the cartoon version that you see on TV.


          Trump would be much more successful if he would stay away from Twitter except for positive messages. Responding on Twitter to a former Sec. of State that “you picked” by calling him dumb as a box of rocks and lazy is just childish and reflects more negatively on you than on him. Most people would right off the bat suspect that Exxon would not have a CEO that could be described that way. Tillison was very successful at Exxon.


          Most leaders can overcome shortcomings in knowledge by reading, even by one on one briefing. What we hear repeatedly is Trump has a short attention span and hates to read. Unless his staff is going to turn everything presented to the President into a short TV show....I honestly do not know what they will do, maybe the next Chief of Staff will have more luck. Who ever the person is can have no fear of being fired. I suspect Trump is one of those people that controls by threats, or implied threats.

              I figured it out, we have been looking at the Faux part instead of the fraud they put up with the word news. It is Fox-Northern European White Supremacy.

                  Oh, how brave of him. He said this to a Swiss Magazine that no MAGA people or Fox viewers read. Why doesn't he say this on Fox? He won't.
