Tucker Carlson keeps going further down the rabbit hole of conspiracy theories as it helps drive even more attention to his highly-watched nighttime Fox News show. At this point, Carlson sounds basically like a mostly emotionally-stable version of Alex Jones. Case in point, last week on his program, Tucker did a segment on his show suggesting that there was something suspicious about Joe Biden doing televised appearances from a set in the Eisenhower executive office building. Tucker said there were plenty of rooms available for Biden to do a press event in the White House and found it bizarre that he would choose to do it across the street instead. He then suggested it was all so Biden would be able to read a teleprompter so he wouldn’t need to speak off the cuff, which doesn’t make sense, because presidents regularly deliver written speeches using prompters from the White House. He also half-heartedly argued Joe Biden isn’t really in charge of the country, which has been a talking point lately among conservatives. Tucker hammered home the “Biden isn’t really in charge” theory on his show some more during an interview with former Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn, wherein the two parroted QAnon conspiracy theories about a shadow deep state government run by Obama. Sadly, Carlson’s commentary is likely to continue down this conspiratorial path because of the positive reinforcement he is getting from his audience.
