This was the most awkward moment ever in the history of Fox News race-baiting

In an awkward moment on Fox & Friends Weekend this Sunday, an agitated Chris Wallace rejected Tucker Carlson’s attempt to address President Obama’s alleged “dog whistle” comments in a speech he made to the Congressional Black Caucus.

In an awkward moment on Fox & Friends Weekend earlier this year, an agitated Chris Wallace rejected Tucker Carlson’s attempt to address President Obama’s alleged “dog whistle” comments in a speech he made to the Congressional Black Caucus.

Wallace was expecting to talk about Ted Cruz and the government shutdown debacle that was enveloping Washington. But Carlson wanted to analyze the President’s comments, where he reassured the audience that they’ve “overcome darker threats” than the GOP’s attempts to defund Obamacare.

“That’s the race card being played,” Carlson asserted. “Can you see any other explanation for it?”

Wallace seemingly rolled his eyes and quickly changed the subject. “Oh, I don’t know,” he replied. “I think to get to the real point though, they’re not going to compromise.”

Despite Wallace’s dodge, Carlson insisted on addressing the comments. “But what do you mean?” Carlson interrupted. “Isn’t it news if the President says to the Congressional Black Caucus, ‘We’ve overcome far bigger threats’? That’s taking rhetoric to a new place, is it not?”

Wallace, looking completely frustrated with Carlson’s redirecting the conversation, paused for at least two seconds and replied, “I don’t know Tucker.”

After another few seconds of uncomfortable silence, Wallace asked, “Do you want me to talk about Obamacare?”

    Unbelievabe! Wallace better watch out. Roger Ailes will fire him for not supporting the right wing dogma that Fox is paid to push! Carlson just trying to make some crap up as Fox always does and then their addle headed followers lap it up.
    Good for Chris Wallace for NOT ACCEPTING the taunt!

    Wow, headline wasn’t kidding when it said “awkward”. The question with no answer because Carlson is working in Imaginationland.

    The piety exemplified by Tucker Carlson and his “friends,” is astounding! They sit there as though they are so high and mighty, while those affiliated with their ilk have engaged in some of the most disrespectful behavior towards this President, in modern day history!

    Where was Mr. Carlson when the Tea Party persists in accusing this President of not being a naturalized born citizen of the United States? Of course, folks like Carlson see absolutely no problem with THAT behavior now, do they? No! Nary a word is said when his cohorts do that because in the mind of a high and mighty, look down your nose snob, such as Carlson, that behavior is okay.

    Chris Wallace does have his moments of shame, but of all the people on that network, he may be the most reasonable.

    Problem here is that Chris Wallace is an old-school investigative journalist that got his start back when reporters had that little thing called integrity. Tucker Carlson is essentially a muckraker who tries to stir the pot and fit whatever he’s taking about into his conservative mindset.

    Does anybody even understand what Carlson is accusing Obama of meaning? Like, what is Obama’s “secret meaning” in that phrase? Don’t get me wrong, I remember Carlson’s first name because it rhymes with what he is, so I don’t care what he says, ever, I just really have no clue what he’s accusing Obama of doing here.

    It seems he’s trying to parlay the words “darker threat” into some kind of *code* for something somehow contorted into something racial, because dark = black = racial to a mentally stunted conservative! Sure, it’s hard to rationally follow their pretzel logic. Alas it is neither rational or logic, but merely *twisted*.
