Youtube must have given up on me, because it suggested to me a clip from Tucker yesterday. I understand that Tucker is manipulative (probably on the same level as John Oliver, who habitually curses him). I understand that he appeals to the traditional, conservative values of his audience, which I frequently do not share. But god, does he look an intellectual giant against the backdrop of the talking heads from the opposing camp that he has clipped. He is flattering his audience, sure, but at least he is trying to appeal to their reason. Imagine hearing what he clipped all the time, which is just aggressively dumb.
