As Twitchy has reported, CNN’s prime-time ratings really are in the toilet, coming in below TLC and shows like “Dr. Pimple Popper,” while Fox News remains at No. 1. And CNN’s media guy Brian Stelter isn’t helping matters by watching Fox News instead of his own network like most cable viewers in America.
We’ll leave it up to our readers to decide if Tucker Carlson engages in “extreme rhetoric,” but you’ve got to admit Stelter chose a bad night to accuse him of it.
Can you imagine talking this way? Such extreme rhetoric all the time? Tucker Carlson just now: "To the modern Democratic Party, Americans are an afterthought." pic.twitter.com/xUiKYby2SO

Yeah, you never hear extreme rhetoric from the guests and panelists on CNN. And what a thing to say about the Democrats. Shameful. Right, guys?

Extreme rhetoric all the time? Have you not been listening to your side? By that I mean the anti-Trump resistance, implicitly endorsed by you and your fellow travelers

We can’t hear you because we’re dead because of net neutrality and the GOP tax cuts. It was Armageddon.
Bahahaha what? kettle, glass houses…blah blah blah. Now you my dear should take over for @jimmyfallon at night because that joke made me laugh!! Who says comedy is dead… you give us Patriots hope…??????

??? Are you joking? Thats literally all CNN does is talk in hyperbolic extreme language.

From the man who has suggested Trump is an authoritarian, so mentally unhinged he should be removed from office. https://t.co/FXDdWCHjOe

Prove him wrong. Your actions speak for themselves. You are as extreme as anyone

Watching Fox are you? A confident runner never looks at the other runners unless they’re in the back of the pack.

Do you ever watch @cnn?

Brian is aware of how the he’s in-step with the Dems’ extreme rhetoric, right? Brian realizes he’s just as bad, right? https://t.co/3PjuLkuEca

The truth hurts Brian. He’s commenting on actual Democrat actions.

Tucker does a magnificent job of making the Democrats look like idiots. Actually, they do it themselves
— Kambree Kawahine Koa (@KamVTV) July 27, 2018
Is he wrong though? Doesn’t seem extreme to me at all.
— Sarah (@Loki919) July 27, 2018
Extreme rhetoric? No one is buying that remark.
— Nan Kolinski (@NanKolinski) July 27, 2018
“Extreme rhetoric”?? Maybe if Democrats would’ve realized this is the way they come across to every day Americans they wouldn’t have lost the 2016 election. https://t.co/DihpES0auh

That isn’t an overstatement.

I guess it was better when it went unsaid even though we know it to be true.
— Treacherous Logic (@Treacherouslogc) July 27, 2018
Considering he has a higher audience number than you – @TuckerCarlson is spot on – DEMS continue to push for policies the majority of Americans don't want.
— Lawyerforlaws (@lawyer4laws) July 27, 2018
It's not extreme rhetoric if its true. Dems don't care about the American people.
— Bruh (@1800cnnsucks) July 27, 2018
Tucker is right.
— SmokingDog (@EdgeLurch956) July 27, 2018
What Tucker said is true, Tater. Go to bed.
— Lee (@ipsofacto211) July 27, 2018
Tucker is right, and Democrats are clueless.
— Deleterious Stranger (@intmtnsp) July 27, 2018
He's not wrong.

Democrats care more about illegals, that's clear to see. Tucker is right.
You still suck #WalkAway

Spot on actually the DNC will go to the mat for non-citizens & want to tax the hell out of citizens to get it accomplished. The DNC has made a living from feeding it’s agenda at the taxpayer trough. How is that rhetoric inaccurate? #WalkAway pic.twitter.com/GgU1Qy7UYW
