If there’s one thing that CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin can’t be accused of, it’s keeping his opinions about President Trump a secret. He denounces the President seemingly every chance he gets. Lately, he’s taking to decrying many things the President does and says as somehow racist. During Wednesday’s Tucker Carlson Tonight, Carlson called Toobin out for his hyperbolic wailing.
As he was teasing the segment ahead of a commercial break, Carlson dubbed such knee-jerk cries of racism as “the left’s most common and laziest attack.” And as the segment began, he elaborated on that analogy by describing it as an “involuntary habit, a tick-like saying ‘God bless you’ after somebody sneezes. If they may not even be aware they are doing it.”
“Watch for example as noted TV person Jeffrey Toobin reduces the complicated meteorological phenomenon of hurricanes to a single word, yes, racism,” Carlson mocked.
What followed was a soundbite of Toobin declaring that Trump didn’t care about Puerto Ricans killed by Hurricane Maria because they weren’t white. “They are not white people and they don’t count to Donald Trump as much as the deaths of white people,” he proclaimed.
While Chicken Little cries of racism were the left’s answer for everything, according to Tucker, he was surprised they were coming from Toobin:
What’s so striking about this is that Jeff Toobin is doing it. He’s not a bad guy. Personally, I’ve always liked him for whatever it’s worth. And unlike so many other people you see on television, he is not stupid. In fact, Toobin once wrote the single best account of the O.J. Simpson trial. That’s a book that these days he himself would likely dismiss as, you guessed it, racist.
