Tuesday, Senate Majority Leader Schumer (D-NY) had a massive meltdown on the Senate floor.
Cristina Laila of TGP earlier revealed that Schumer had asked that Rupert Murdoch suppress Tucker Carlson and other Fox News commentators about J6.
Schumer and House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries demanded that Rupert Murdoch control Fox News hosts in a letter to him.
“As noted in your deposition released yesterday, Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, and other Fox News personalities knowingly, repeatedly, and dangerously endorsed and promoted the Big Lie that Donald Trump won the 2020 presidential election. Though you have acknowledged your regret in allowing this grave propaganda to take place, your network hosts continue to promote, spew, and perpetuate elections conspiracy theories to this day,” the Democrat wrote in a letter to Rupert Murdoch referring to the Dominion lawsuit.”
Luckily, Fox News did not heed, as Tucker Carlson promptly revealed the fact that many of the claims peddled by the January 6 panel were terrible falsehoods.
Tucker demonstrated that Brian Sicknick was unhurt, Jacob Chansley nicknamed “The Qanon Shaman” did not conduct sedition (he marched peacefully across the Capitol), and Ray Epps lied to the committee about being a patriotic whistleblower.
Nevertheless, facts do not matter to Schumer. After providing Tucker the audio, he reiterated several of these lies, demanding indignantly that Fox News censor Tucker once more, and accused House Speaker Kevin McCarthy of treason.
They're Freaking Out Big Time

Schumer’s weakest singles:
Last night, millions of Americans tuned into one of the most shameful hours we have ever seen on cable television.
I don’t think I’ve ever seen an anchor treat the American people and American democracy with such disdain.
Fox News, Rupert Murdoch, tell Tucker Carlson not to run a second segment of lies. You know it’s a lie, you’ve admitted it’s a lie.
Speaker McCarthy has played a treacherous game by catering to the hard right. He has enabled the Big Lie, eroded away our precious democracy.
Americans of all types…need to take a stand and call out Mr. Carlson’s conduct for what it is: a dangerous, unforgivable attempt to destabilize our democracy.
It’s an insult to the memory of every single person who perished in connection to the [Jan 6] attack, especially to the memory of Brian Sicknick. Nonviolent? Ask the Sicknick Family.
Schumer is terrified, and the news will only grow worse for him and his fellow Uniparty members.
