Tucker Slams 'Out of Touch' Jennifer Lawrence for Linking Hurricanes to Trump
Tucker Carlson had some strong words for actress Jennifer Lawrence, who said Hurricanes Harvey and Irma are “Mother Nature’s rage" and "wrath” for America for electing Donald Trump and not accepting man-made climate change.
"It's been proven through science that climate change is due to human activity," Lawrence said in an interview with British network Channel 4 while promoting her new film "Mother!" "And we continue to ignore it. And the only voice that we really have is through voting.”
She added that it was "really startling" to see Trump win the presidency.
“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 [and] wrath," Lawrence said.
"Why is it as people get richer and more famous, sometimes they get sillier and more out of touch?" Tucker wondered on his show tonight.
"The Hill" media reporter Joe Concha said Lawrence appears to be suffering from "acute Trump derangement syndrome."
"Apparently side effects include blaming a sitting president for hurricanes hitting the U.S. mainland during hurricane season," Concha said.
Tucker noted that Lawrence received very little blowback from the mainstream media for her comments.
"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," Tucker said. "You'd think like the press would jump on her."
He concluded that "being a celebrity is bad for your soul."
