Tucker Carlson has come a long way since his days wearing a bowtie while sitting across from Paul Begala and James Carville on CNN.
Carlson is now, arguably, the voice of the conservative-populist movement on the Right.
And now some Canadian politicians are condemning Carlson for telling a joke that didn’t sit well with them.
Tucker Carlson vs. Justin Trudeau
Tucker Carlson isn’t a fan of Justin Trudeau.
In his time as Prime Minister of Canada, Trudeau has proven to be a true tyrant.
Back during the trucker protests of his jab mandate, Trudeau even went as far as jailing protesters and freezing their bank accounts.
Trudeau – who has been caught wearing black face on multiple occasions – is also a true friend of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, putting the three letters D, E, and I above all else in Canadian life.
While Americans suffer through President Joe Biden’s southern border crisis, Canada has been flooded with migrants thanks to Trudeau’s magnet policies.
The influx has led to unsustainable housing, education, and incarceration costs – as well as increasing the already fatally long wait times to receive medical care in the “Universal Healthcare” country.
The list of Trudeau atrocities goes on-and-on.
The joke heard round the continent
On a recent episode of his Tucker Carlson Today show, the host made a joke comparing Trudeau to one of the Castro brothers in Cuba.

“Why should we sit back and let our biggest trading partner, the country with which we share the longest border, and actually – it’s a great country, I love Canada, I’ve always loved Canada because of its natural beauty – why should we let it become Cuba,” Carlson mockingly asked. “Why shouldn’t we liberate it? We’re spending all this money to liberate Ukraine from the Russians. Why are we not sending in armed forces to liberate Canada from Trudeau?”
Carlson was utilizing an extreme example to paint the picture of the absurdity of the United States sending $50 billion in unaccountable money to Ukraine.
But apparently, a clip of the tongue-in-cheek question made it back to some Liberal party politicians in the Great White North.
A resolution to condemn Carlson
Tucker’s sarcasm was completely lost on Liberal Member of Parliament Mathew Green of Hamilton Centre, Ontario.
The NDP didn't like Tucker Carlson's sarcastic joke about "liberating Canada" from Justin Trudeau.

Green somehow connected Carlson’s joke to January 6.
“Given the rise of far-right and associated extremism led to the attempted insurrection in the United States, the House condemns recent comments made by Fox News personality Tucker Carlson – in which he suggests U.S. armed forces ‘liberate’ Canada from the current Prime Minister,” Green declared in front of Parliament.
Green actually went as far as motioning for a unanimous consent resolution condemning Carlson in an entire country for making a joke.
The motion failed in resounding fashion – much to Green’s embarrassment, as he was under the impression unanimous consent existed.
He was wrong.
And he doesn’t understand what a joke is.
Nor does he understand that the real joke is his Prime Minister – except millions of Canadians are suffering because of that joke of a “world leader.”
