Tucker CarlsonFox News host Tucker Carlson is under constant assault from the left.

Liberals want to shut up Carlson and shut him down because Carlson articulately and effectively supports Donald Trump’s agenda during his nightly Fox News program.

But now scandal erupted and Fox News was pressured to fire Tucker Carlson for this crazy reason.

In recent months President Trump complained about the number of Democrats appearing on Fox News and airing their talking points without any pushback from hosts.

Critics believe Fox News shifted left to try and appease liberal critics in hopes of the Democratic National Committee awarding Fox News one of their highly-rated presidential primary debates.

Allegations that Fox News is too accommodating to its left-wing critics peaked after Democratic National Committee Chairman New York State Senator Michael Blake appeared on “America’s Newsroom” and hijacked his airtime to call for Tucker Carlson’s firing.

Host Bill Hemmer started the interview by asking Blake to respond to Tucker Carlson’s prediction that Michelle Obama would enter the Democratic presidential nominating contest.

“Don’t bet against Michelle Obama.” Carlson added, “The Democratic Party is ripping itself apart over race and gender and class. Michelle Obama, let’s be honest, is one of the only people who could unite the party’s warring factions.”

Blake quickly dismissed the idea of Michelle Obama running for president and instead fired off a list of fake news media lies about Carlson to smear the popular Fox News host as a racist.

“She is not running,” Blake ranted in response to Hemmer’s question. “The core question is why the hell does Tucker Carlson still have a job here in the first place? The reality is this is someone who said white supremacy is a hoax. Why does Fox still allow him to be here in the first place?”

Hemmer tried to shut down Blake and get the interview back on track.

“We get it,” Hemmer said. “We didn’t bring you on to talk about Tucker Carlson, we brought you on to talk about the Democratic field.”

But Blake was having none of it.

Blake continued his tirade against Carlson and Fox News in general by claiming the President and Carlson supposedly ignored the supposed “truth.”

The Democratic National Committee Vice Chair referenced comments Carlson made after the El Paso tragedy this past summer, noting that Washington elites claimed white supremacy was a growing national crisis as an excuse to grab guns and extend government power.

“It’s a conspiracy theory used to divide the country and keep a hold on power,” Carlson stated.

Fox News spent months trying to placate its liberal critics.

The network’s straight news hosts began regularly attacking Donald Trump and turned the daytime programming into a clone of fake news CNN.

Legal analyst Andrew Napolitano also repeatedly falsely accused the President of committing crimes and impeachable offenses.

But those programming changes won the network no goodwill with the left.

As long as even one Fox News on-air talent expresses any type of support for Donald Trump, left-wing critics will try to shut down Fox News and take it off the air.
