Have you noticed that Democrats and people in the liberal media sound exactly the same when talking about the border? Tucker Carlson has and he slammed them all in a recent monologue on the air.
Real Clear Politics has a partial transcript:
TUCKER CARLSON, FOX NEWS: In a televised address to the country last night, the president made his case for why America needs a wall on our southern border, and why that wall is so important that it’s worth shutting down the federal government to get it.
Democrats remained unmoved. Their leaders in Congress, Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi, delivered the party’s initial response. Their words were then echoed with mechanical precision by Democrats up and down the chain, from sitting members of Congress all the way down to the leftwing lady muttering in your local dog park. “Talking points” doesn’t do justice to the rhetorical discipline here. It was like watching a 3-D printer at work, churning out carbon copies of stilted propaganda, one after the other. A miracle of replication. You might even call the Democratic response, “manufactured”:
Rep Raul Grijalva: I’ll state that this is a manufactured crisis that’s been manufactured by the Trump administration
THE DNC’S TOM PEREZ: This is a manufactured crisis, Bill
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: How he manufactures crises like immigrants seeking legal refuge
SENATOR TIM KAINE: What the president is doing is manufacturing a crisis
PELOSI: President Trump must stop holding the American people hostage, must stop manufacturing a crisis
SCHUMER: This president just used the backdrop of the Oval Office to manufacture a crisis
One thing to know about our national media: if Democratic leaders are saying it, reporters are saying it too. No matter what it is. You often hear conservatives complain that our media are “liberal.” That’s giving them far too much credit. What they really are is obedient, like Shih Tzus begging for a snack.

Tucker nailed this. He is so right.
