even by the standards of fraudulent hollywood ceremonies, it it was a moment. editions do not accept emmy awards, that would require admitting that they are actors. but andrew cuomo, postmodernist he is, had no problem. he's been playing a character from thebu godfather for decade. so he took it. here are the highlight clips that they played as andrew cuomo received his statuette. >> flatten the curve, flat liquor, we talk about social distancing. new york is been getting the short end of the stick for thisr federal government from day one right across the board. let's stop just for one moment the partisanship. >> tucker: flatten the curve, flatten the curve, flatten the curve! its iconic! it's like go ahead and make my day or may the force be with you. we will never forget it, it will live on forever in our common b culture. as you can see why andrew cuomo won best performance by a
sitting governor, such passion, such intensity. the delivery seemed almost lifelike in its sincerity, talk about method acting. for second you can all most imagine enter, running a large american state, sitting in his office in the capitol buildingni making compex policy decisionsns about whatever they make complex policy decisions about, barking urgent orders to aid like a governor. it was a remarkable performance. in fact, looking back that nighr at the emmys last november was the effigy of andrew cuomo's career and you could have lived on it for years, dining out, mining the memories of his hated playing progressively smaller venues, doing an annual fan show in san diego. but he chose not to. andrew cuomo is wiser than that, he's bigger. he remembers well what happened to marlon brando when the godfather series ended, the long decline. so today andrew cuomo quit the business, he left at the top of his game, here's his announcement. >> wasting energy on distractions is the last thing
that state government should be doing, and i cannot be the cause of that. new york tough means new york loving, and i love new york, and i love you, and everything i have ever done has been motivated by that love, and i would never want to be unhelpful in any way, and i think that given the circumstances, the best way i can help now is if i step aside and let government get back to governing. >> tucker: he's so tough he's running away! he's so tough he's quitting! we've heard that claim a lot recently. and watching that tape, it is possible we have sold andrew cuomo short. we told you his emmy in november was the high point of his career, but in fact what you
meant just saw may have been the single greatest performance of his life. toiresigning not because i killed all those old people in nursing homes, no. not because my closest advisor went to federal person for corruption. nothing to do with it. not because i have a super creepy personally,y, by the wayt is an entirely possible that i am a made member of the mafia. not at all. i'm resigning from my job because i love the state of new york. ladies and gentlemen, that's what loveve does. it resigns. pretty remarkable.e. could al pacino have delivered those lines with a straight face? not a chance.et instead of enjoying it they media missed the art of it, they took it seriously, they thought it was real. today they're telling you that andrew cuomo's resignation is a watershed moment, it's a win forth the #metoo movement, a somber remind reminder -- on cnn they got complete the carrot away as they often do. -- carried away as they often
do. and particularly self-hating male anchor, is there any other kind over there, was so awestruck by andrew cuomo's speech that he immediately yielded the floor to the ladies coming to his female colleagues. it would be wrong, he said, for a man to weigh in on news this great. that's how toxic andrew cuomo is buried andrew cuomo is a living investment to men everywhere, even newsreaders whot co periodically identify as men on cnn. that's what they're telling you. now, far be it for us on theth show to defend andrew cuomo. he is awful. we've said that for years and we haven't changed our view. but still, it might be worth asking obvious questions before we move onto the next victim. for example, if enter, was harassing someone he women enjoying the state capital in new york, how can we just learned he's been doing it? andrew cuomo has been in officet for almost 11 years. lots of people say now they knew heus was a creep. they knew before, they certainly didn't. they told us that enter, was god-like. do you remember that? in case you don't remember it, we have the tape. >> governor cuomo out there day after day after day, everythingo
trump isn't, honest, direct, brave. >> even lifelong republicans tell me they look at cuomo they are like god, there's a leader. >> for those of you who have been wondering why new york governor andrew cuomo has been garnering the nickname america's governor, i think he saw it right there. he is conveying incredible strength in the face of this pandemic.co >> maybe trump is just ae litte bit mad the governor cuomo has become a kind of acting president. >> i hope you are ableom to appreciate what you did in your state and what it means for the rest of the country now, and what it will always mean to those who love and care but you the most. >> tucker: turns out noted feminist icon joe scarborough liked the cut of andrew cuomo's jib. and honestly that should have c been a tip right there. the race lady was a fan too. in retrospect, those were pretty clear signs he should have picked him up, but here's the most obvious sign. america's most prolific hair sniffer was a massive fan of
andrew cuomo. of course it was, these guys all know each other's. >> president biden: you're governor of new york is done one hell of a job. sort of a gold standard. look at what you have governors like cuomo more out there doing -- just keeping everybody informed all day. i think is doing an incredible job. i think he has been the lead horse here. i talk to him frequently, he's a friend. i think is doing a great job, i really mean it. >> tucker: he's a friend, i really mean it. they all meant it until just about precisely december of 2020. that's when a candidate from manhattan bureau president, a woman called lindsay boylan, wrote a twitter thread that accused andrew cuomo of "harassing her." sexual harassment. the crime occurred more than two years earlier in 2018, but we hadn't heard about it. there is first question, why did lindsay boylan wait two years to tell us what happened? this guys the governor of one of the most important states in the
country, so why didn't she pipe up before, say before the emmy awards? we can't know the answer to that but it's clear she picked a significant moment to share her allegations on twitter. she went public most immediately after the news media called the presidential race for joe biden. oh. could it be that the second that call was made, andrew cuomo had outlived his usefulness and it might be time to crush him and move on to someone who's easier to control? t if you think that's a conspiracy theory, you don't live in new york, where that kind of thinking is common.u the state of new york has a long history of palace coups and manm of them, a disturbingly large number, originated in the attorney general's office. in fact, andrew cuomo once did it. d he was the attorney general of new york. remember that? he used his office to investigate his boss at the time, eliot spitzer, the guy who wore black socks. all coming backhe to you? and then he became governor. so this is the kind of thing that happens in new york.
that's not exec with democracy, it's like late ottoman and but it's very common there. could that be what's happening now? the current attorney general of new york as a woman called letitia james. james does not hide her own political emissions because he no longer have to come and only cares. earlier this year she said that ag -- he thought it meant attorney general, actually she said it stands for aspiring governor, which she is. even before she was elected toir her current office which she has missed used from day one, james about to start a political investigation against donald trump's businesses in new york. not because you have specific evidence that they had broken the law, she didn't. she didn't claim she did, but eses didn't like him she sense followed through on that promise. is that the kind of justice you want? so there are reasons to question letitia james' motives, to put it mildly. and those doubts become far more pronounced if you become one of the three living americans who has actually read the 165 page report that she just produced on andrew cuomo, the report that led to his resignation today.
the closerr you read that report the more you are likely to notice that large portions of it are absurd. they don't make sense. on page 148, for exam, letitia james accuses andrew cuomo of "allowing senior staff members who sit on hisf p at official functions." that sounds kind of creepy as hell actually end james chloe thought it was. she was characterizing lap sitting as evidence of "a hostile work environment." all right, but if you go back to page 122 of the same report, you will notice this line. "none of the senior staff reported feeling uncomfortable with his behavior." so they liked sitting in andrew cuomo's lap. weird, but who are we to judge?t weirder things are happening right now. how is this harassment? how was this a violation of the law? she's the attorney general. her job is not to pass moral judgment on the occupants of high office in new york, but to enforce the laws passed by the legislature.th
that's what she has the awesome power to do that, which she must not under any circumstances misuse or else it's a threat to all of us, even those of us who load andrew cuomo. -- loathes andrew cuomo. but the report, and you should read it, because it's relevant now, is full of lines like that, the kind of inconsistencies you would expect if you were reading, say, a political tract, not a legal document. but again, it doesn't matter now, because the report did its job. now the race for a new governor of new york is underway. boy, that didn't take long. candidates are lining up towa unseat the lieutenant governor, kathy hochul. she is set to take over cuomo is gone. letitia james is first in line which iss not the only one in line. al sharpton is line, so is bill de blasio. they are both planning to run for governor we read. so do you see how this works? andrew cuomo was an awful governor. it pains us to raise any voice in his defense. it was a vicious partisan, he was a thug, but if we are being
honest, he was not completely insane. it wasn't totally untethered from reality.ne he acknowledged some limits to constitutional government. he wasn't, say, letitia james. he wasn't al sharpton, he wasn't even, pause and catch a breath there because it's so horrifying, he wasn't even bill de, blasio. the most reckless and incompetent human being ever to hold elected office, a man who single-handedly discredits the idea of self-government. these people, just being honest, are worse than andrew cuomo. but because someone sat in andrew cuomo's lap, they may soon run the state of new york. just so you know it's actually going on here. just a kelly's host of the jesse kelly show and he joins us tonight. i feel guilty effectively defending andrew cuomo, something i've never done, hope never to do. i'm not actually defending him, i'm defending the system, equal application of law, which i hope will save all of us in the end. do you see kind of what's going on here?
>> well, i'm glad i have a partner in crime, often having to do the same thing all day, i've been trying to explain to people this is a palace coup. these communists whoed managed o slip enough knives into cuomo to take them down don't actually care about any of these women, whether they were harassed or not. none of these women are cared for by letitia james or anyone else.keen if they cared about inappropriate touching by democrats, they'd be looking a little bit more into joe biden, who's been doing this on camera for a long time and none of his victims are old enough to ride the rides at disney without an accompanying adult, so don't tell me these people actually care. they don't care.so it's all about power. >> tucker: well, this is the party that elevated as its standard bearer a guy who killea a woman in a car at chappaquiddick in 1969. he was the hero of the united states senate for my whole life until a few years ago. so no, they don't care. so why don't we just say that out loud? why do we have to go along with
this charade that, you know that the soy guys at cnn are so shocked by his behavior. you work at a tv network, i think you've seen it before, trust me. >> well, they have to pretend to care. all these people pretend to care, tucker. especially as radical as theye are getting now, they have to act like governor python fingers was this nasty guy and they have finally gottenon rid of him, but everyone knows -- everyone can see the game now. that's not what it's about. - it's all about naked power and as you've been telling people, but careful what you wish for. i mean, nancy pelosi is 81, cori bush is 45. cuomo is in his 60s. he how has this younger much more radical generation taking cusover. i know this is a moment we are supposed to be celebrating in the scumbag is going down. be careful what you wish for. this next generation is so much worse than the current generation, dare i say it in ten years you'll be begging forer te days of joe biden and nancy pelosi and andrew cuomo. >> tucker: i think you're exactly right and how bitter do you feel that they are lying is so transparent, so aggressive, such an offense against just the concept of truth that you are forced to stand up and sayso things that could potentially be
interpreted as a defense of someone as loathsome as andrew cuomo? >> i actually take pleasure in it, tucker, because in about 30 seconds after i get off the air here they are going0 to be destroying you and i as defenders of a man who sexually harasses women when reality they know -- they don't care about these women. they don't care about anything. these people are dirty scumbags, i hope they are mad, it would be such joy. >> tucker: he killed all those old people in nursing homes. i haven't heard a word about that, they don't matter but someone sat in his lap and that's the crime? how distorted is our moral scale?t >> it's only 15,000 old people. why are you bringing up old stuff? that's done and gone. the important thing is enter, is -- andrew cuomo, gone and all is right with the world. never mind of some at his grandma, some of his grandpa, but his husband, some at his wife is no longer on this planet because andrew cuomo murdered them with his covid policies. no, the important thing is he got "too telling" and kissed too many women on the cheek.k. >> tucker: i'm sorry to fall
for it every time. jesse kelly, voice of reason, thank you. >> see you, bud. >> tucker: so it turns out the mascot for the colorado rockies has a name that some people find hard to pronounce. so the media spent the week talking about this, because that's the most important thing that's happening in the country. now there telling you if anyone like that mascot or his name, should probablyn have to leave the country.th jason whitlock is a voice of reason in moment like this, has thought a lot about whatce is happening here in joins us straight ahead to sort it out. ♪ ♪ ♪

♪ ♪ >> tucker: here's a story of pr ♪ ♪ >> tucker: here's a story of probably seen. on sunday, just two days ago, a fan of the colorado rockies game wanted to get the attention of the teams mascot, the mascot is called "dinger," so he called out the mascot's name several times.es here it is. >> dinger! dinger! >> tucker: so that video began circulating on social media, which is destroying western
civilization and the team, the rockies, immediately accused the fan of being a racist. they said they were disgusted with the racial slur by a fan. a journalist ran with the story. one sports writer said the man, turned out to be elderly, should be sent to prison. they thought it was perfectly reasonable to think someone at the game was screaming a racial slur right in the middle of it rather than using the name of the team's mascot so final yesterday the rockies released this statement. "after a thorough investigation that include calls, email, and video clips from concerned fans, media and broadcast furnace, the -- partners, the colorado rockies have concluded the fan was indeed yelling for rockies mascot dinger in theiea hopes of getting his attention for a photo and there was never any racial slur that occurred." what you will notice is there's no apology in their to the elderly man who was defamed. his life's been totally overturned. this seems like one of those stories that it's a moment that tells us something about the world that we're living in. it's hard to know exactly what it tells us, so we are outsourcing the thinking on this
to our friendtl jason whitlock, the host of "fearless." he has thought about this and we are happy to have him on tonight. thanks so much for coming on. there's clearly a significance here. what is it? what should we take from this? >> thank you so much for having me on, tucker, you continue to do amazing, important work and it's an honor to be on your show. tucker, i do think this is a moment that we need to analyze and i analogized it in a column i wrote today for the blade and talked about on my podcast to the california gold rush of the 1840s and 1850s. racism is now the new gold and people mindful racism gold, the same way they mind for gold in the 1840s and 1850s and then we have to understand that the miners in this desperate rush to get rich and take patrice colors, the founder of black
lives matter -- she plays the racial game with michael brown, trayvon martin, any other dead man that she thinks has been unjustly killed resisting arrest, and she's now bought four homes across america. ben crump, the lawyer has made millions of dollars negotiating settlements for the families of criminals who resisted arrest. these guys are mining for that racial -- racism gold that's out there and they are being rewarded for itre but the people that are really benefiting a are actually the people that are exploiting the miners, and i believe that's social media, i believe that's what here, i believe that'she facebook. these platforms promote traffic and push the values of people that love to play the racial game, love to do racial division, they are feasting off this racial division that they are promoting over facebook and twitter, and it's no different than the gold rush.
the minors meet a temporary fortune. the people who exploited the minors made millions and billions of dollars and that's what's going on today. they've set up this game where everybody rushes out on a desperate hunt to find this racism gold and it's not really scarce, but it's just hard to find, and it's hard -- it's costly to produce and point to say it contributes to systemic racism because that's been changed by laws and rules, but this racism has a goal through social media, it's making people wealthy and they are exploiting the rest of us. and i'm trying to help people understand we are the victims of
this. those of us with traditional american values, those of us who believe in god, those of us who believe in the founding documents of this country, wait -- because when the 49ers came in in the 1800s in california, they ran off the indigenous people. the indigenous people, native americans, were slaughtered, they were massacred, their hunting grounds -- they starved to death. that's what's happening to us! we are allowing jack dorsey, mark zuckerberg, and thes u pee in northern california to destroy us and run this country away from us and we need to put a stop to it, tucker. >> tucker: you are the first person i knew to really take social media -- not their bias against conservatives, but just the actual platforms, the medium of expression -- very seriously and recognize that they are a threat. what -- whyy isn't -- and i agre with you, i have come to agree with you. why do people not recognize this? w >> because corporate media will not connect the dots, will not explain what has transpired and it's just -- we are being misled by corporate media.
they are all in this together. >> tucker: yes. >> the elite and the protectors of the elite and that's why i love your show and what you're doing. you are a voice -- and you come from wealth or whatever, but you are the voice for the working class. mei'm trying to be right in thee with you to try to explain to people in america, those of us with working-class values, whether we have wealth or not. we have to come together and take our country back. these values that are being imposed on the rest of us, they are stripping of us of our freedoms. they are stripping us of the values that made this country great. we can't sit on the sideline. we have to recognize what northern california is doing. we need to understand the history of northern california and why they are imposing these values on the rest of the country. once we -- with got to know who we are fighting against, and we are being misled.
we are fighting against each other when we have a common enemy of elites and the tech billionaires that are like the gold millionaires of the past. they are in control of these instant millionaires that don't really care about this country, are in control oft. this countr, and it's our country and we need to take it back and we can only do it when we come together. we have to come together. >> tucker: you're making my heartbeat. i agree with every word that you said. i didn't used to buti it's provd to be true and you were right all along. jason whitlock, excellent to see you, thank you. so you may have seen this video. it's everywhere. a physician confronting his school board for lying about mask mandates. you should watch this. the doctor in the video joins us straight ahead. by the way, we have a new book coming out today, called "the long slide." if you want it delivered you can cut big tech out of the process by ordering it from the website, tuckercarlson.com.m. be right back.
announcer 1: as they head toward the finish, warren has built a substantial lead and headed for her fourth gold medal! announcer 2: she's ahead of the world record pace by at least half a second and she - oh wait, wait... what's she doing? announcer 1: i think she's doing a headstand. why would she do that? announcer 2: she's stopping. she just, she stopped. announcer 1: i've never seen anything like this. announcer 2: she was so close to the finish, and she stopped. announcer 1: i don't know what she's thinking! announcer 2: this is unbelievable.
i've never - >> tucker: welcome back, quit fox news alert for you. lindsey graham, the senate republican from south carolina has been out for the last several days, he was sick with corona and even those of us who believe he is a fraud, of course, or wishing a very speedy recovery. he has recovered, he was back on the floor of the senate today telling us what he had learned, and if you haven't seen this video, you should look it up and regardless of how you feel about vaccines and their efficacy, consider this as a sales pitch. lindsey graham said -- this is almost a verbatim quote. if you haven't had the covid vaccine, you need to get the covid vaccine.id i got the covid vaccine and i got covid anyway. think about that. it's like a zen cone. you could spend the rest of your life trying to unravel the reasoning there and never do it. it's the sound of one hand clapping. meanwhile, we have news tonight from dr. anthony fauci, who runs the country, and we got to warn you, it's bad news. matt finn has that story.
>> white house medical advisor dr. anthony fauci is now saying that some individual freedoms should take a backseat during this ongoing pandemic and fauci is endorsing vaccine mandates for teachers and professors. >> i mean, i know people must like to have their individual freedom and not be told to do something, but i think we are in such a serious situation now that under certain circumstances, mandates should be done. it's understandable that people want to do the kinds of things they want to do, they want the freedom to do that, but there comes a time when you're dealing with a public health crisis that could involve you, your family, and everyone else, that something supersedes that need to do exactly what you want to do. >> fauci is also expressing his concern that the motorcycle rally happening right now in south dakota might become a super-spreader event. san diego state university study concluded last summer about stress bike rally caused an
outbreak in coronavirus cases, but south dakota governor kristi noem said ongoing tests week after that event last year showed that the study was inaccurate and a political attack. critics say thein media has also largely ignored asking fauci about the recent lollapalooza concert in chicago where vaccines were required but the staggering photos show tens of thousands of concertgoers shoulder to shoulder at that outdoor venue. he also suggested he thinks statewide mandates will become s increasingly likely after the fda approves a vaccine. tucker. >> tucker: matt finn for us tonight, thanks so much. >> sure. >> tucker: you've seen stories in the news about governments and hospitals in the last several months mandating the vaccines for health care professionals, doctors and nurses. nobody has asked the most obvious question, which is why would you need to force doctors and nurses to take the vaccine that is self-evidently good for them? you can't say they don't believe
in the science. they are practicing science. you can't say they are ignorant, they are doctors and nurses. what is that about? well, what it's about is that there is not a consensus on any part of science, and he probably shouldn't be. not every doctor agrees with cdc guidance. most of them aren't saying in a thing about it but theyay definitely exist or else they wouldn't beni mandated to follow the orders of the cdc. one doctor who is gone public with his disagreement, particularly about mask as a physician in indiana called daniel stock. recently dr. stockholders local school board that they are making rules that have no grounding in science whatsoever. here'sho part of it. >> it'ss hard to believe we are 18 once into this and still a problem and i would suggest the reason we areof havg a problem is we are doing things that are not useful and we are getting our sources of information from the state health and cdc who actually don't bother to read science before they do this. i'm actually a [indiscernible] position, that means i am specially trained in immunology and information regulation and everything being recommended byl the cdc and the state board of health is actually contrary to
all the rules of science, and you will be chasing this the remainder of your life until you recognize that the center for disease control and the indiana state board of health are giving you very bad scientific guidance.he >> tucker: dr. daniel stock is the man you just saw in that video and we are happy to have him join us tonight. doctor, thanks so much for coming on. there is so much of that video that we didn't play. p first of all, bless you for speaking up in an informed way the weather people agree with you are not, i think we can all agree it's important to have a debate about things like this. why did you say what you did? >> well, i think they -- we've been hearing one side of the debate in the one side of the debate that i'vel, been seeing actually doesn't dovetailed with all of the science that i know. it ignores a great deal of information that leads one to believe that this virus is irrevocable when it's really not, and the virus avoidance is somehow a useful thing as a way to handle the pandemic.
and since we are not going to be able to avoid the virus, somebody is going to contracted eventually, it seems like we are ignoring all the data, things we can do to improve an immune system besides a vaccine anded focusing only on that and trying to avoid virus, which isn't avoidable. >> tucker: i mean, our whole response seems predicated on the belief that we can avoid it, that you can hide from it forever. you arere saying that we can't. >> well, this virus, like every other respiratory virus, has animal reservoirs and in all the history of medicine we've only eradicated one virus, and that was smallpox, which had no animal reservoirs, it only affected humans. because some of those animals are actually domestic animals, there is just no way to escape the virus. this is why we can't escape influenza or the common cold. the focus in this manifested in his mind after reading all the literature is since it doesn't appear we have very good steps we can take that evener do anything in viral avoidance in most circumstances, certainly not in the general population, is there any consensus that masks were, the data is very murky on this, it seems to me focusing on immune system improve and whether through a
vaccine or nonvaccine methods is the more rational approach to this. >> tucker: this seems like -- considering what you're describing, theac misconception that you're describing is the heart of the federal response and the heart of these mandates, it's kind of a big screwup if what you're saying is right.es >> well, it is certainly not intuitive. certainly not intuitive at all and it doesn't -- i mean, i asked the school board to ask themselves why don't we do this for influenza and the common cold. after all the overall death rate is no difference between covid-19 and influenza, when you count them the same way for their cases, and so i don't really see why this suddenly has to be this way. >> tucker: boy, i appreciate your saying that just because, again, i think it is something we need to talk about. dr. daniel stock, the video is online, it will be at least until tonight before they yank it because it is too true for public consumption, i appreciate you coming on and i hope to come back.e
good to see you, doctor. >> thank you very much for having me. > tucker: thank you. the show has just obtained internal communications from the highest level of immigration and customs enforcement, i.c.e.,ns d those communications, which are shocking, not an overstatement, reveal who is running the agency and why they are refusing to deport dangerous criminal aliens.nn it's not what we expected at all, you will be interested to hear what's actually going on. that's straight ahead. ♪ ♪ on. that's straight ahead. ♪ ♪
♪ ♪ >> tucker: so the very first thin ♪ ♪ >> tucker: so the very first thing joe biden did when he got to the white house was to change the mission of the u.s. immigration and customs enforcement agency, i.c.e.. the biden administration decided to protect criminals from deportation. not because it was the groundswell of support for having foreign nationals who are felons in our country, but because they wanted to change the country, and they are, so i.c.e. was instructed not to arrest most illegal aliens, including many convicted felons and naturally deportations
plummeted. tonight we have exclusive reporting on what is actually happening inside i.c.e., whichtu is a government agency that you pay for. seniore to a now-former i.c.e. official, thomas s feele, who said he'd never seen anything like this in the 25 years he worked there. told us last week that activists who don't work for the government but for creepy left-wing nonprofits, routinely weigh in and stop deportations. that seemed incredible to us. doesn't even sound legal. why would an ngo have control over u.s. government policy, but in fact it's happening and we can prove it. this show has just obtained emails confirming his claim. on june 7th an activist contacted i.c.e. asking for an urgent favor. the activist as a woman called tania, she's a member of abolish i.c.e., the movement that wants to end any border control whatsoever. she demanded that i.c.e. order a stay of removal that would walk the deportation of a convicted felon.
that was set to take place within 24 hours. the criminal record included robbery and simple assault and drug charges. a federal immigration judge ordered pena removed from the country back in july of last year, because why would you ever import criminals, especially in the middle of a crime spike which we are living through now? but she didn't care and wanted i.c.e. to overlook that ruling, so she emailed an i.c.e. attorney asking for "assistance on the case. just 20 minutes after she sent that email, the i.c.e. lawyer forwarded it to tim perry, ice's chief of staff and that it was "a time sensitive matter" because one abolish i.c.e. activists demand action, i.c.e. acts. so perry deems that request so important that he requested his staff to release ade report on pena and then discuss on a call with the director.rt taye johnson. he forwarded a criminal report to johnson and said this, "i mentioned this on our call
earlier, sharing" goes corporative responded, can we -- grant a 14 day state of removal on this? an official responded "will do." this is what they're doing as the border has descended into total chaos. h a hell-ish scene of human suffering, ourto country is beig invaded by the rest of the world, not just latin america, not just mexico, the whole world and they are worried about how they can keep a felon in our country withoutri you knowing about it. they're doing it based on a single email from an activist who wants to be eliminated so the director of i.c.e. decides to protect the convicted criminal from deportation. can this be real? it looks real so we reached out to i.c.e. for comment and yes, it is real. they did not dispute our reporting, they confirmed that pena has not been deported, he is still in our country. a spokesman told us that i.c.e. "routinely works alongside nongovernmental organizations must go. crazy left-wing ones that hate america. so the biden demonstration is
not working with activists from places like [indiscernible] want criminals deported, it's working with the abolish i.c.e. movement which now has control over i.c.e.. it's insane. they no longer have to eliminate i.c.e., they are in charge of it.li how is this happening? does nobody care? comedy convicted felons are still in this country because of people like this?e? why is the biden administration allowing this? why are we putting up with ed? and where are republicans in congress? what did they do? voted for pete buttigieg's infrastructure bill, 19 of them today. someone needs to stand up for the country and do it right away. so our friend larry elder is running for governor of california. all of a sudden you wake up in the morning and it turns out larry elder could win, for real. larry elder has a real shot at becoming the governor of california, amazing and great and true and he joins us next.

>> tucker: there's a recall in california. we haven't covered it that much on the show, but it's happening. the ballots are going out very soon. larry elder, polling shows, is the top candidate to replace gavin newsom. again, amazingly since he's our friend, it's hard to believe but it's real. larry elder has a very real chance of becoming the next governor of california. how amazing would that be? larry elder joins us now. larry, first of all. >> thanks for having me. i appreciate it. >> tucker: it's remarkable that this could actually happen. what a blessing it would be for the state and the country. are we overstating the case? you could be elected governor of california pretty soon. >> no, tucker, you're not overstating the case. in fact, the governor gave an interview to a series of newspaper reporters and he was unhinged, angry and surly.
he acted like humphrey bogart in that scene. he can't defend the record, crime is out of control, the cost of living is out of control. homelessness is out of control. he ignored science and slammed the state. a third of small businesses in california are gone while he had his own kids enjoying in person private education. while he was sitting with the very people that drafted the mandate at the french laundry while not wearing masks or socially distancing. people have had it. that is why 2.2 million californians who were a third of them and who were independent, democrats who voted for this man two years earlier. >> tucker: put yourself in his position. you're gavin newsom. you have a low i.q. and no skills. but you're running something big. you own this state. that's how you feel. there is some guy, who is larry elder? he could beat me? imagine how he feels. >> tucker, this is a guy who was a two-term governor of san francisco.
eight years as lieutenant governor. he had plenty of time to think about what he would do if he would become governor. he becomes governor and we have all these problems. let's remember, the school system was bad before he denied in person learning to the public school students in california, 80% of whom are black and brown. the ones the left claim to care about. 75% before the pandemic of black boys could not read at state levels of proficiency and those levels are already low. nearly half of third graders can't read at that level of proficiency. this man denied parents and kids a whole year of education. that's one of the reasons why i'm pushing for school choice if i am fortunate enough to become governor. speaking of which, go to electelder.com. throw something in the tip jar. because tucker he can spend an unlimited amount , believe it or not, of money. the teachers' union give him a little under 2 million. a few days ago one of the big unions gave him $5 million. he's probably going to spend 50 million to defeat me. i have expenditure limitations. unless i get help from people
inside california and outside california, he's going to be tough to beat him, but i'm going to beat him. >> tucker: man. if that happens, that would be the greatest. larry elder, godspeed. thank you. >> thank you come appreciated. >> tucker: if you're watching the show, chances are you voted republican. what are they doing on your behalf? 19 republicans in the senate voted for the biden administration's big infrastructure bill today. we told you what it does. maybe we should read their names just so you know so you don't forget. here they are in alphabetical order. roy blunt, richard burr, shelley moore capito, bill cassidy, susan collins, kevin cramer, mike crapo, deb fischer, lindsey graham, chuck grassley, john hoeven, mitch mcconnell, lisa murkowski, rob portman, james risch, mitt romney, dan sullivan, thom tillis and roger wicker of mississippi. that's what they're doing in your name.
are they defending you, standing up for your country? no, they voted for pete buttigieg's fake infrastructure bill. that's it for us. a new book. it's a pretty good book called "the long slide." order it from tuckercarlson.com. you can cut the big tech out of the way. have a great evening. and we head over to sean hannity. >> sean: the reckless spending on capitol hill, it continues, yeah, the rino republicans that you just heard. inflation skyrocketing. all across the country and we are literally stealing money from our own children. republicans are helping to enable it. the $1 trillion down payment on the green new deal just passedld the senate with republican support. senator john kennedy said the bill was full of stupid stuff. keep in mind the 1 trillion is in addition to the 600 billionri already spent on top of the 3.5 trillion the democrats will use in the reconciliation project
