Tucker asks the ultimate question to the ultimate answerer. Tucker Carlson on Wednesday had a monologue so beautiful it brought a tear to my eye. It was 11 minutes of absolute perfection.
He started out with Russian disinformation, then focused in on the Lets Go Brandon meme, and expanded it to the real world effects of vaccine mandates. I couldnt have written it better myself. Although, to be fair, I could have written it exactly like it was. It just wouldnt have been better. Well, it might have been a little bit better, but not significantly better to the point where audiences could detect that it was better.
The point is: bravo to the writing staff, because you have reached the apotheosis of the Tucker monologue.
But then, at the end of the monologue, Tucker moved flawlessly into an interview with Victor Davis Hanson. He left off where his genius writers left him with whats the point of this I wonder? and passed it to Victor triple names.
The face Victor Triple was making while thinking about the question. Victor Triple did not have any answer.
The response was: I dont know.
The face Victor Triple made when explaining that he does not know. Literally, the reply from Victor: I dont know.
Its not really very complicated, Victor.
The vaccine is a purity test.
Joe Biden is attempting to clear out from any position of relevance anyone who refuses to submit to his purity test.
Its not complicated.
I watched Tuckers long-form interview with Victor Triple and was shocked at how often he made a confused face and said I dont know. Its actually amazing that this man worked for the National Review and has been involved with all of these people his entire life and still has no idea what is going on. In fact, I would go so far as to say that Victor Triple is like some character from Rick & Morty.
There is an absurdity about his confusion that really matches the aesthetic of Rick & Morty. And I dont mean current Rick & Morty, I mean the first two seasons before it got high on its own supply and started thinking it was funnier than it actually was.
Im not against Tucker having on Victor Triple. It is funny, to go from Tucker laying out this stuff in great detail, using hilarious prose, with satire and irony, and then switching to this confused old man who just doesnt understand anything. It really serves as a great bookend, to have this old guy just saying I just cant even understand anything that is happening around me after Tucker demonstrates such clear understanding of what is happening around us.
Now that Ive laid out everything with explicit clarity, lets go ask this guy who is confused about everything is a great comedy bit.
I support it.
But it really is just nuts that someone could reach Victor Triples age, with his personal experiences, and remain in a state of utter and complete confusion as regards the world around him. But what makes it even nuttier is that he is the mold for an entire generation of boomers who have watched the world around them crumble and have remained completely incapable of grasping the things happening right in front of them.
Im not even angry about it anymore.
It is clear that they just simply are not capable of understanding, and therefore, there is really nothing to get angry about.
Its sad and its very unfortunate, but it cant be enraging. Not anymore.
I honestly believe that Victor is a nice person, who is doing his best, and is simply incapable of managing his own state of utter confusion. His entire understanding of the world is summarized in the above image. Hes not doing this on purpose. Hes legitimately this confused.
Also, to be fair to ol Trips, he was fired from the National Review for supporting Trump and populism more generally. But as I pointed out when I watched his long interview with Tucker, his answer as to why the National Review doesnt care at all about the middle class was: I dont know. He eventually hit on the idea that they must have been bothered that his tweets werent polite.
Boomers are legitimately like little children. They just simply cannot grasp really any concepts at all.
Heres the full episode. As stated, Trips comes in after the brilliant monologue.
