Fox News host Tucker Carlson was very angry about the reaction a Houston restauranteur got after posing for a photo with Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
Carlson had Univision anchor Enrique Acevedo on for a confrontational interview in which he accused the network of not being a news network and instead of trying to “pummel” the chef.
Partial transcript below:
“There is something to be said about a man … about Jeff Sessions and the moral contradictions of a man that led the charge to dehumanize and criminalize immigrants and then suddenly shows up at a Mexican restaurant to order huevos rancheros. That’s like Cuban officials going to a McDonald’s to order a Big Mac after a speech on American imperialism,” Enrique Acevedo stated.
A Houston area Mexican restaurant, El Tiempo Cantina, received backlash for serving Attorney General Jeff Sessions last weekend.
“The posting of a photograph of the Attorney General at one of our restaurants does not represent us supporting his positions,” Roland Laurenzo, the restaurant owner, wrote on Facebook, but it has been deleted.
“I think what people are point out, the contradiction of attacking someone’s culture, someone’s story and then celebrating their food,” he continued before being cut off.
Carlson said, “What do you mean their food? It’s American food. What do you think, you own tacos now or something? I love this it’s so crazy. Oh really? It sounds like you feel like you own tacos. I feel like I do, I feel like they’re an American food and I’m going to keep eating them even though I agree with Jeff Sessions.”
Nailed him. Liberal socialist democrats think because of your ethnicity you should only believe their party line. I am half Dutch so by liberal logic I am required to wear wooden shoes!
Every Republican need to go eat at this restaurant! Remember how we swamped the chick fil ay in NYC, a few years ago!
