On his Friday show, Tucker Carlson slammed Hollywood actress, Jennifer Lawrence, for claiming that the destructive hurricanes that have been slamming the US are because of President Trump.
Earlier this week, while talking to a British news agency, Lawrence claimed that the recent surge in powerful hurricanes hitting the US mainland were due to Trump’s presence in the White House.
“It’s scary,” the actress noted. All because Trump is creating “an end-of-days feeling,” for liberal celebrities like herself. “It’s also scary to know that climate change is due to human activity, and we continue to ignore it, and the only voice that we really have is through voting.”
“It’s been proven through science that climate change is due to human activity,” Lawrence said. “You know, you’re watching these hurricanes now, and it’s really hard, especially while promoting this movie, not to feel Mother Nature’s rage.”
Talking with a reporter from The Hill, Joe Concha, Carlson wondered at the lack of press coverage over such an outrageous statement.
“You gotta kinda wonder though about the press coverage here. Here you have one of the most famous actresses in the world on the eve of what looks like a catastrophe using the storm and the impending human suffering to make a really stupid political statement. You’d think the press would jump on her.” Carson said.
“I think we have to have empathy for Jennifer Lawrence,” Concha sarcastically replied. “I’m not a doctor, but since everyone is playing one on TV, let me give you my prognosis on Jennifer Lawrence,” Concha said.
“She’s obviously suffering from ‘Trump derangement syndrome.’ Or in this case, it’s an acute strain of ‘ADTS’ and this is a situation where apparently side-effects are/include: blaming a sitting President for hurricanes hitting the U.S. mainland during hurricane season.”
He continued: “I was asked by NPR after the election. I was asked: ‘How do you think Donald Trump won without any celebrity backing?’ … I believe if you look at this situation, Jennifer Lawrence would be exhibit A.”
Carlson ended the segment with this conclusion, “Being a celebrity is bad for your soul.”
