Tucker SLAMS NBC Covering for Biden’s Decision to Leave Marine Behind

Breaking News

On Thursday evening’s edition of Fox News’ Tucker Carlson Tonight, host Tucker Carlson exposed to a national audience what was revealed on investigative journalist Jordan Schachtel’s Substack, which is that NBC News originally reported that Russia reportedly offered the Biden administration a choice between freeing Marine Paul Whelan and anti-American Basketball player Brittney Griner, and Biden chose Griner. Then when nobody noticed, NBC quietly covered for Biden and changed the story to what is currently the media narrative that Russia said take Griner or you get nobody. 

After airing Biden repeating his claim that Griner was the only American prisoner they would allow to go home, Carlson mocked Biden’s apparent lie: “This was not a choice of which American to bring home. Really? Oh but it clearly was a choice and we know it was a choice because the first accounts of the prisoner swap with Russia said it was a choice.” 

Carlson laid out the allegations, in a concise way that only he can: 

Earlier today, Andrea Mitchell of NBC, this is somebody who has been in Washington covering news for more than 50 years, someone who is deeply supportive of the Joe Biden administration, contributed to a story that contained this line. “The Kremlin gave the White House the choice of either Griner or Whelan or none.” 

So Mitchell’s piece attributed this fact to a senior U.S. Official, it was not a guess, it was sourced. And then, as with the earlier reporting on Paul Pelosi last month, that account was scrubbed and sanitized. And the new version of the NBC story assures us that “the Kremlin ultimately gave the White House the choice of either Griner or no one.”

“In other words, Joe Biden’s version of events is now perfectly in sync with the official NBC News version of events,” Carlson continued.

This led Carlson, like all Americans with common sense, to come to the horrific realization that “the Biden administration chose Brittney Griner over Paul Whelan. The basketball player over the marine facing 16 years.”

Carlson pointed out the obvious that Griner was picked over Whelan, because “Whelan is a Trump voter and he made the mistake of saying so on social media and he’s paying the price for that now.” 

Whereas, “Brittney Griner despises the United States, she’s been very vocal about that,” Carlson noted.

“She hates the country so much she doesn’t want to hear its anthem. That’s the kind of position that gets you rewarded by Joe Biden. Hate America? Perfect! We’ll free the guy that sold weapons to drug cartels to get you out early,” Carlson observed.

TUCKER CARLSON: This was not a choice of which American to bring home. Really? Oh but it clearly was a choice and we know it was a choice because the first accounts of the prisoner swap with Russia said it was a choice. Earlier today, Andrea Mitchell of NBC, this is somebody who has been in Washington covering news for more than 50 years, someone who is deeply supportive of the Joe Biden administration, contributed to a story that contained this line. “The Kremlin gave the White House the choice of either Griner or Whelan or none.” So Mitchell’s piece attributed this fact to a senior U.S. Official, it was not a guess, it was sourced. 

And then, as with the earlier reporting on Paul Pelosi last month, that account was scrubbed and sanitized. And the new version of the NBC story assures us that “the Kremlin ultimately gave the White House the choice of either Griner or no one.” 

In other words, Joe Biden’s version of events is now perfectly in sync with the official NBC News version of events. Of course. Now we missed this. A writer on Substack Jordan Schachtel noticed it and we’re glad that he did. This kind of thing happens all the time in Washington, constantly usually without the public knowing that it happened. So at this point, we can assume the obvious, the Biden administration chose Brittney Griner over Paul Whelan. The basketball player over the marine facing 16 years. 

There was only room for one, on the lifeboat, and the marine got left behind. Well, why did they make that choice? Well, you should know that Whelan is a Trump voter and he made the mistake of saying so on social media and he’s paying the price for that now. Griner is not. She’s got very different politics. 

Brittney Griner despises the United States, she’s been very vocal about that. This country is so repellant and immoral that two years ago she said “I honestly feel we should not play the national anthem during our basketball season.” 

She hates the country so much she doesn’t want to hear its anthem. That’s the kind of position that gets you rewarded by Joe Biden. Hate America? Perfect! We’ll free the guy that sold weapons to drug cartels to get you out early.
