Appearing on “Fox & Friends” this morning to preview his “Fox News Sunday” show, host Chris Wallace appeared to be visibly annoyed with his colleague Tucker Carlson.
Carlson started off the segment by playing a clip of President Barack Obama saying Saturday night that defunding his landmark healthcare law is “not going to happen” and that “we have overcome far darker threats” than this.
“That is a dog whistle. That is a race card being played. Can you see any other explanation for it?” Carlson asked Wallace.
“Oh, I don’t know,” responded Wallace. “I think to get to the real point though, they are not going to compromise—”
“Isn’t it news if the president says to the Congressional Black Caucus ’we have overcome far bigger threats?’ I mean, isn’t that — that’s taking rhetoric to a new place, is it not?”
“I don’t know Tucker,” Wallace, visibly annoyed, said. “Do you want me to talk about the healthcare?”
