Tucker on Trump-Bashing at AMA's: Celebs Now Becoming 'Enforcers of Groupthink'
A few days after VP-elect Mike Pence was booed by the crowd and lectured by the cast of the Broadway show "Hamilton," celebrities lined up to take shots at President-elect Donald Trump Sunday at the American Music Awards.
When the band Green Day performed their single, "Bang Bang," the band chanted, "No Trump, no KKK, no fascist USA!"
Co-hosts Gigi Hadid and Jay Pharoah did a skit mocking Trump and the incoming First Lady Melania.
"I love Bruno Mars. I don’t know what color he is, so I can’t deport him,” Pharoah declared in his impersonation.
Tucker Carlson responded on "Fox & Friends" this morning, arguing that "so-called artists" should be trying to "elevate the individual against the group."
Instead, he said "artists across the spectrum are acting basically as enforcers of conformity and groupthink," imploring others to "get in line."
Carlson pointed out that these celebrities, who now claim to be fighting against "fascism and authoritarianism," were mostly silent during the Obama administration.
"Where were they when they found out that the NSA is reading our emails or when people were punished in the Obama administration for their religious views or people in colleges getting fired for saying what they really think?" he asked, adding that artists are doing the "opposite" of fighting for free expression.
