Et tu, Tucker? Yep. Incredible as it sounds, Tucker Carlson disputed the validity of what Michael Flynn lawyer turned Trump election law guru, Sidney Powell, said today at Rudy Giuliani’s batshit presser — where the batshit literally poured from the man’s hair. (Hint: It wasn’t hair dye, according to the New York Times, and we’ll get to that in just a moment.)
An uncharacteristically demure Tucker Carlson shared with his audience that Sidney Powell didn’t offer a shred of evidence today — oh noes. Several TV sets in the White House just gave their lives. The Viewer in Chief could not have been happy with this most recent betrayal.
My favorite part of this is when Powell flubs and says, “President Biden.” Damn, I like the sound of that!
The software itself was created with so many variables, and so many backdoors that can be hooked up to the internet or a thumb drive stuck in it or whatever, but one of its characteristic features is its ability to flip votes. It can set and run an algorithm that probably ran all over the country to take a certain percentage of votes from President Trump and flip them to President [yeah!] Biden. Which we might never have uncovered had the votes for President Trump not been so overwhelming in so many of these states that it broke the algorithm that had been plugged into the system and that’s what caused them to have to shut down.
“It broke the algorithm.” Where is Murfster? Way back in the day, in 2016, when I first joined up on Daily Kos and started my career as a Murfster35 groupie, I told him that he “broke the algorithm” by getting to the rec list so often. His words to me were, “don’t expect me to fix it.” I guess he won’t fix this algorithm, either. :)) Never thought I’d be hearing the phrase with respect to a presidential election. It was ridiculous enough when applied to the Rec List on Daily Kos, that’s why we laughed and screamed. Little did we know, right?
Tucker Carlson calls out Sidney Powell, saying he asked her for evidence to support her election fraud claims, but "she never sent us any evidence despite a lot of requests, polite requests, not a page."

This is something you wouldn’t have seen a year ago, or even a few months ago, Fox News throwing a Trump ally under the bus like this. But it makes perfect sense. Trump has announced his plans to go into competition with Fox News and he’s hyping Newsmax and OANN.
As stated before, if I had to make book on the last man standing in a few years, Donald Trump or Rupert Murdoch, I’m betting on Murdoch. And it’s clear that Murdoch is betting on Fox News and that Fox News has dumped Trump. Roger Ailes must be looking up from Hell with a quizzical look on his face.
As to Rudy’s literal meltdown today, the New York Times interviewed some hairdressers and they said it wasn’t dye. They said it was Rudy putting mascara on his sideburns. Or something.
Remember the great Carole Lombard line, “Who do I have to f*ck to get off this picture?” We’re asking the same thing, with respect to this group nightmare we’re all a party to.
