Tucker Carlson dealt a significant blow to Ben Shapiro, alleging that the conservative radio host lacks concern for the well-being of the United States. During an interview with Breaking Points host Saagar Enjeti, Carlson was questioned about Shapiro’s previous criticisms towards him. Carlson, known for consistently criticizing individuals who express worry for Israel following the October 7 terrorist attack, accused Shapiro of prioritizing Israel over the United States.
In response, Shapiro had previously condemned Carlson for downplaying the severity of the attack on Israel, labeling him as both “idiotic” and morally ignorant for comparing it to drug overdose deaths in the United States.
“I’ve watched the entire kind of right-wing ecosystem get embroiled in fundamentally what is a third-world conflict,” asserted Enjeti after name-dropping Shapiro. “Now we can say support, not support, we can have criticisms, etc. of that. But what explains this like literal allegiance on Ukraine, Israel? Why is it that so many of these people don’t seem to have the same level of care for actual American citizens?”
