Tucker on Pelosi Debate: 'Dems Have Reached the Identity Politics Cul-de-Sac'
Tucker Carlson said that the contentious intra-party battle surrounding Rep. Nancy Pelosi's bid to become Speaker of the House showed that Democrats have "reached the identity politics cul-de-sac."
Carlson noted that MSNBC host Rachel Maddow questioned why Democrats are divided on Pelosi after her party won more House seats in an election since the 1970s.
Carlson told writer Tammy Bruce that the Democrats "may have reached the identity politics cul-de-sac" with their infighting.
Following the Democratic Party's platform, "it's racist to keep Nancy Pelosi because she doesn't look like the emerging Democratic Party. But, it's sexist to kick her out because she's the highest ranking Democrat woman."
Bruce added that it might also be "ageist" to pick someone else because the Baltimore native will be 79 years old next March.
Names like Rep. Marcia Fudge, a Democrat from Cleveland, Ohio -- and former chairwoman of the Congressional Black Caucus -- have been floated as possible competitors for Pelosi,
Fudge said Thursday that she is "thinking about" making a bid.
"I've got my popcorn," Bruce remarked.
