Conservative commentator Tucker Carlson has suggested that former President Donald Trump could be targeted for assassination.
Carlson, who made the comment while being interviewed by Adam Carolla, noted that Trump has been the subject of criticism, protests, impeachments, and indictments.
"We're speeding toward assassination, obviously," Carlson said, adding that "permanent Washington, both parties, have decided that there's something about Trump" which is "so threatening" toward them that they cannot have him in office.
"It's hard to overstate how bad this is," Carlson said. "I don't know where it's going. But there's a collision that's clearly imminent."
Carlson also described President Joe Biden as "senile, in a way that's impossible to deny," claiming that he is "not running the government."
"I've never been this worried about anything as I am about where this is going," Carlson said.
Biden, who is already the oldest president in U.S. history, would be 86 by the end of a second term.

Despite all of the attacks that have been lobbed against Trump, the former president remains immensely popular, so much so that he appears to be on track to trounce the entire GOP presidential primary pack vying for the party's 2024 presidential nod.
With polling indicating that Trump and Biden are likely to win their respective party's presidential nomination, it appears that Americans could see a Biden-Trump rematch in the 2024 general election.
Last week just before the start of the first GOP presidential debate — which Trump skipped — Carlson released an interview of Trump. Since Carlson dropped that interview on X, the post containing the video has amassed more than a quarter of a billion views.
