Carlson also criticized the media’s positive take on Biden’s relationship with his wife Jill and the lack of coverage regarding first son Hunter Biden‘s sex scandals and history of drug problems.
The host opened his show Tucker Carlson Tonight on Tuesday with the argument that the mainstream media was ‘our most corrupt institution’ and accused the journalists working at those outlets of telling ‘outlandish’ lies every day.
Carlson used the segment to sarcastically point out how positive the coverage of Biden has been in the mainstream media compared to the Trump administration.
‘To hear the mainstream media tell it, Joe Biden is like America’s dad. A little blunt sometimes, but honest. A straight shooter, solid, reliable, steady. That’s Joe Biden,’ Carlson said.
Fox News host Tucker Carlson blasted America’s mainstream media on Tuesday night, saying it has sunk to a new low with its ‘disgusting, corrupting love affair’ with President Joe Biden
‘Above all, Joe Biden is a family man who took the train back to Wilmington every night to the 10,000-square-foot estate a campaign donor bought for him in exchange for unregistered lobbying on behalf of credit card companies. But he’s not like the last guy.’
He then went on to slam the lack of negative coverage of Biden’s family, particularly the scandals surrounding his son Hunter, including his drug history and how he fathered a child with a former Arkansas stripper.
‘Joe Biden’s family’s refreshingly normal. There aren’t any weird sex scandals or protracted drug problems or ongoing criminal investigations you’ve got to worry about. Want to know what the Bidens are doing this weekend? A recent headline in Newsweek will tell you, ‘Joe Biden Wins in Mario Kart Race Against Granddaughter at Camp David’,’ he said.
‘Wholesome stuff like that, not secretly lobbying for China or impregnating strippers from Arkansas. No, they’re playing Mario Kart with the grandkids, just like you.’
Carlson also likened Biden’s marriage to his wife Jill as a ‘PR stunt’ and mocked their love story, saying their relationship was ‘as real as climate change’.
‘At the heart of this great American family is a love story; a man and a woman united in the fires of passion that changed the course of our history. Not since Mark Anthony dined with Cleopatra in downtown Antioch before they killed themselves has a country witnessed a love story as moving and poignant as Jill and Joe’s,’ Carlson said.

Carlson also likened Biden’s marriage to his wife Jill as a ‘PR stunt’ and mocked their love story, saying their relationship was ‘as real as climate change’
‘The Bidens affection is totally real and in no way part of a slick PR campaign devised by cynical consultants determined to hide the president’s senility by misdirection.
‘Their love is as real as climate change.’
Carlson slammed a recent Politico story ahead of Valentine’s Day that described how the Bidens were trying to bring back ‘tenderness’ to the White House after Donald and Melania Trump.
‘That’s right, America, the Bidens’ love is like medicine. It’s more powerful than the COVID vaccine, and you only need one injection,’ Carlson said.
‘The Bidens’ love will be healing for this country. It will make us whole again. It might even stop looming hyperinflation and keep the Chinese navy from closing the South China Sea to international shipping. That’s the kind of love it is.’
Carlson also argued that journalists were like a ‘herd’ and suggested they were like Olympians in reverse because of what he says is a talent to lie.
He then went on to slam the lack of negative coverage of Biden’s family, particularly the scandals surrounding his son Hunter (pictured during the inauguration), including his drug history and how he fathered a child with a former Arkansas stripper
‘All of us lie from time to time, that’s the human condition. Imagine, though, if lying was your job. Imagine forcing yourself to tell lies all day about every subject in ways that were so transparent and so outlandish that there is no way the people listening to you could possibly believe anything you said,’ Carlson said.
‘Then imagine doing that again and again and again every day of your professional life for your entire life. Could you do that? If you could, CNN has an opening on the media analysis desk.
‘If you’re a normal, non-socipathic person, the answer obviously is no. So you’ve got to kind of respect the people who can. They’re like Olympians in reverse. They achieve feats so dishonorable that you gasp in horror as you watch them, but at the same time, you’ve got to respect those skills.’
He went on to list ways the mainstream media was more corrupt than the mafia, Mexican police officer and Jimmy Hoffa.
‘How corrupt is the mainstream media? Imagine a drunken border guard at the crossing between Togo and Burkina Faso shaking you down at midnight as you pass through. The New York Times is much more corrupt than that,’ Carlson said.
‘The media are more crooked than Jimmy Hoffa ever was. They’re more dishonest than your average bribe-taking building inspector in Queens and more treacherous than the Mafia. They make cops in Tijuana look trustworthy. You’ll get fairer treatment from an inner-city DMV than you would from CNN.’
