'Have You Read the Orders?': Tucker Takes on Anti-Trump Protest Organizer
Cameron Whitten, the man who organized one of the protests against President Trump's executive order barring immigration from certain countries, said he was "very troubled" by its implementation.
When pressed by Carlson, Whitten would not say whether he read the text of that executive order, but maintained that he read several documents and orders released by the White House.
Carlson said the order's text demands that the United States not admit people "who engage in acts of bigotry or hatred" based on others' race or gender, and asked whether Whitten would agree with such a contention.
Whitten responded by calling the overall application of the executive order to be "questionable." He also faulted Trump for acting faster than people are "able to have a conversation" about the issues.
Carlson later asked whether Whitten and his fellow protesters felt any regard for American citizens who may have missed flights or were inconvenienced by demonstrations blocking airport roadways and entryways.
The protesters were demonstrating their First Amendment rights, Whitten said, "Democracy is messy."
