Sarah McLaughlin once sang: “When somebody loved me, everything was beautiful/Every hour we spent together, lives within my heart/And when she was sad, I was there to dry her tears/And when she was happy, so was I, when she loved me.” Tucker Carlson, however, doesn’t seem to have ever run into that experience. Instead, the Fox News commentator took to the airwaves with a sinister plot: Maybe, just maybe, Joseph Biden’s 44-year marriage was actually the work of political consultants who imagined that long ago that if they played their cards right, had a child, and decades later they stayed together, just maybe, just maybe, it would cover up a plot to cover up senility that wouldn’t be evident until 40 years later.
That, in a nutshell, is the conspiracy being floated by the bloviator who takes up a spot on Fox News nightly. That he knows the Biden marriage is a sham. He knows it because, well, he offers absolutely no proof at all. He doesn’t apparently need any to get on the airwaves and begin making accusations about why a couple would hold hands. It is certainly a contrast to the disdain Melania showed to the former president over and over, but really Tucker? Really?
