The Windy Tucker Carlson Said He Cannot Stand Trump's Self-aggrandizement and Boasting

From an article in the Washington Post the other day:

Tucker Carlson says Trump is ‘not capable’ and hasn’t kept his promises

washingtonpost.com ^ | December 6, 2018 | Deanna Paul

*****************

Vanity:

"Carlson said he cannot stand Trump’s self-aggrandizement and boasting.'

______________________

Speaking as one who will vote for and heavily support DJT in the future, one thing must be said.

The President will have a much more difficult time winning a second term if he doesn't make some adjustments that are addressed in the quoted remark above.

His never ending BOASTING is losing him millions of votes.

To quickly change that (loss of votes) is quite simple.

Examples: 1. Instead of saying "I WON this ...." he should always say, WE won this for the country" .... 2. "TOGETHER WE created the strongest economy for our country and its people" etc., etc.

***********

I know that there are many here who respond by saying , "he has to tweet, he has to get his news out, the MSM won't". That is true, let him tweet all he wants, but the problem is simply the wording of the tweets and all his remarks concerning his accomplishments.

He must REMOVE the word "I" when talking about accomplishments. Everyone knows he's the center of the successful achievement.

If his constant boasting bothers even me, I can see how gross it is to those who have doubts about him to begin with.

(Women, as a rule, do not like men who find the need to brag after they have succeeded at something.)

If D.J.T. wants a second term he has to get rid of the word "I", and speak of his accomplishments for the country ...NOT AS "WINS" but as "achievements or successful efforts" for the good people of America.

Tucker Carlson must have been WASTED when he supposedly said this.

Who can? Maybe Trump should dig up Reagan and have a discussion about who had the “Best Economy Ever (TM)”

His contract must be up for renewal soon. He knows he has to boost his standing with the management at Faux.

Something tells me people like him have to become naysayers only because of Hannity and Laura. Last thing you need is 3 peas in a pod.

How in the world did he ever win a first term?

The protests at his home and threats against his family worked.

“Do your damnedest in an ostentatious manner all the time.”

General George Patton

Or, in other words, if you can do it, it ain’t bragging.

It has absolutely nothing to do with this. I think some folks need a reality check on being able to excitedly support someone and also not agreeing on 100% of everything the person says or does, policies or positions. That doesn’t make the person anti this or anti that, a “bed wetter, GOPe, pearl clutcher” or any of the oft mentioned over used terms of the week. It also doesn’t mean the person has some ulterior motive for disagreeing. I too happen to agree with Tucker. It doesn’t mean he is right but for the poster and me he is.

So the go to knee jerk is when someone who supports the President 95% of the time happens to take a stance opposite of or in this case has discomfort with “I, I, I” (a valid point might I add) that automatically makes them part of the anti Trump club, a fake, a this or a that.

That my friend is hero worship and we had enough of that last election with fanatics swearing Obama walked on water, people proven to faint at his mere presence and speak in tongues!

Balderdash!....Your premise is ridiculous

Trump speaks of what he knows AND has accomplished!

Obama did nothing but brag for 8 miserable (that’s two terms) years
Obama.....said I so many times it was almost laughable......almost

He’s still saying I did it.....for Trump’s accomplishments

His show is groundhog day. He has these simpleton morons on and he “debates” them. I don’t want to hear what some racist, bigot Obama sycophant has to say. Boring and repetitive.

Yeah. I can’t stand his commie guests. But overall he’s pretty good at keeping the illegal alien issue in the forefront.

We do not need a sweet talking president!

We need a president who keeps his pre-election promises.

We do not need a compassionate conservative like the Bushes who did nothing to stop invasion of illegals.

We need a president who is America First.

We do not need a president who imposes more regulations and taxes on small businesses like Obama did. But the media loved him because he was for the poor, never mind he created more poor people, more food stamps, more free phones, more free stuff.

Tucker Carlson says Trump is ‘not capable’ and hasn’t kept his promises

How many "not capable" people have built skyscrapers and hotels around the world? How many "not capable" people have built businesses that made them billionaires?

Considering the opposition that Trump has faced from rats'n'rinos, it's amazing that he has managed to keep so many of his promises.

Carlson hasn't gotten past the worn-out "Trump isn't presidential" complaint from 2017.

What's with Fox News, and why is it moving left?
