Tucker Carlson, the ex-Fox News anchor known for his accurate insights, has made a concerning forecast regarding the upcoming 2024 presidential election, which has garnered attention. In a recent gathering, Carlson acknowledged the prevailing sentiment of anger and paranoia among the people he has interacted with. He emphasized that these individuals are not inclined towards conspiracy theories but rather ordinary citizens expressing genuine concerns about the current state of affairs in the nation.
“I flew out here across the country this morning and spent five hours texting people … and I gotta tell you, every single person I texted, except my wife — who’s not on the internet at all — was angry and paranoid,” Carlson said.
“Seriously, and these are not crazy people. These are normal good people with like kids and stuff. With a vested interest in Americans’ success. These are not the burn-it-down caucus. These are the, you know, these are the people you want voting,” he added.
Furthermore, Carlson underscored that, based on his evaluation of their perspectives, he considers their emotions to be entirely warranted. He drew attention to the mounting strain within the United States, envisioning its possible amplification as the nation nears an impassioned election season in the forthcoming year.
“And I have to say, after assessing their views for five hours, I think they were justified in both. They had every reason to be angry and all the evidence required to become paranoid,” Carlson added. “I’m just telling you once again, what you already know, which is, this is going to be — the next year is going to be, I think I’d bet my house on it, really like nothing we’ve ever seen in the country. And everyone can kind of feel that. You know, most of our perceptions come through intuition rather than reason.”
“But if you’re close to your dog, you know, the dog knows exactly what’s going on … they just watch and they feel. And people are very much the same. And if something bad is about to happen, everybody gets jumpy. And everybody’s really jumpy right now,” Carlson said.
Carlson provided a series of recommendations for the upcoming months, underscoring the importance of keeping up with political advancements. He brought up President Joe Biden’s cognitive state and stressed the legal accusations against former President Donald Trump. Additionally, Carlson alluded to prevailing societal concerns, including gender ideology, as subjects that require careful consideration.
“Your gut is the one thing that doesn’t lie to you. Your gut only has your interest in mind. It is not trying to sell you a product or convince you to vote for it,” he said.
“If you feel like you’re being lied to, you’re 100 percent right — you are being lied to. And if you feel like something very intense in history is about to happen, don’t ignore it. Don’t panic. There’s no profit in that, you can’t control it — you’re not in charge of history,” Carlson added, highlighting that there is “similar volatility” in politics happening across the world, most especially throughout the West.
“You’ve got two people running for president — one of them is literally senile,” Carlson added, noting further that he thinks Biden is “not running” the show at the White House. “Yet he’s standing for reelection at the age of 80.”
Carlson then shifted to Trump’s pending court cases: “Every time he gets indicted and every time they tack years onto this potential sentence, he becomes more popular — and now he’s winning.”
“Nothing that is happening now or that has happened for the last five or six years can be explained through conventional political terms,” he said.
