Tucker Carlson is afraid that former President Trump could be assassinated because his “popularity rose” after each time he was indicted.
This week, Carlson was a guest on the Adam Carolla Show, when Carolla questioned him on whether the establishment would “let Trump be president.”
The former Fox News anchor showed his fear by pointing to what he sees as a string of failed attempts to stop Trump going back to 2016. These include the two impeachments “on ludicrous pretenses” and the four charges against him within five months.
TUCKER ON TRUMP: “We are speeding towards assassination obviously. — They have decided that there's something about Trump that's so threatening to them, they just can't have it”

“Look, they spoke out against him. They made fun of him. He still won. They tried to remove him from office twice for stupid reasons. In order to remove him again, they made up a lot regarding what transpired on January 6. Nothing happened. When he came back, they charged him. Nothing happened. He gained more fans. Then they charged him three more times, and each time, he became more famous.”
“So what happens next if you start with criticism, then move on to protests, then move on to impeachment, and finally move on to the indictment?” Carlson inquired. “I mean, make a graph, man. We are obviously speeding in the direction of assassination.”
He thinks that both political parties in “permanent Washington” have agreed that Trump is so dangerous to them and that they simply can’t have him.
“I mean, they’re bringing him up for trial in the ‘J6 case,’ which is essentially an attempt to lock him up for the rest of his life for grumbling about the previous election.” He also said, “That’s exactly what it is.”
Carolla had just questioned Carlson on Chuck Schumer’s remarks from 2017 in which he said that Donald Trump was “truly dumb” for making fun of the intel community in a message on Twitter.
Schumer indicated to MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow in a threatening way, “If you go against the intelligence community, they’ve got six ways from Sunday for getting revenge on you. So, even if he was a practical, seemingly hard-nosed entrepreneur, he was really stupid to do this.”
Carlson said that Schumer’s words, which he has heard many times, never stop “leaving him speechless.”
“I don’t see how you can claim ‘I’m for democracy,’ then proceed to say, ‘Actually, our nation is ruled by a shadowy intelligence organization that nobody’s elected, and nobody has supervision over.’ I mean, this isn’t a free country if the CIA has the power to imprison you as President for doing things that it doesn’t like.”
