CNN hosts and Tucker Carlson are sworn enemies.
The network constantly attacks Carlson’s Fox News show because it’s so effective.
But CNN said something about Tucker Carlson that took everyone by surprise.
CNN host Brian Stelter hates Tucker Carlson.
He’s continuously attacked Carlson and Fox News on his CNN show, as have his colleagues.
In addition to the attacks from CNN, Carlson has also had to endure advertiser boycotts orchestrated by censorious leftists.
Apparently, it’s only okay for liberals to have news opinions.
But something strange happened recently.
In light of Donald Trump’s retaliatory strike on Iranian terrorist mastermind Qasem Soleimani—the American embassy in Baghdad was besieged by an Iranian-backed militia days prior—Stelter found himself agreeing with Carlson’s take on the situation.
Carlson is a potent anti-war voice who warns against escalation in the region.
Stelter went on Twitter and actually retweeted a part of Carlson’s segment:
Some of Tucker Carlson’s Qs: “Is Iran really the greatest threat we face? Who’s actually benefiting from this? Why are we continuing to ignore the decline of our own country in favor of jumping into another quagmire from which there is no obvious exit?” pic.twitter.com/WLHcgI1u3Q

Even Stelter and CNN had to appreciate Carlson’s take on war.
Stelter took it a step further and tweeted, “Tucker’s Friday night commentary should be watched or read in full.”
It’s not often CNN will wholeheartedly endorse a take by Carlson, especially when CNN trumpets pro-war messages on its network.
CNN analyst Samantha Vinograd essentially called Trump a coward for not following through on an airstrike that would’ve killed 150 Iranians; Carlson consulted Trump on the decision before he sagely called off the attack.
CNN’s Van Jones said Trump was “presidential” for the first time when he bombed Syria in response to news of Bashir al-Assad allegedly deploying chemical weapons against his own citizens.
Trump was against the Iraq War and campaigned on rolling back U.S. intervention in the Middle East.
So far, Trump hasn’t started any new conflicts, but a small group of warmongers seem eager to drag him into conflict.
Every time Trump announces a plan to withdraw troops, the warmongers go nuts.
Big media tried to convince everyone the Kurds would get slaughtered if we left that part of Syria.
The so-called peaceniks on the left were suddenly extreme war hawks calling for a permanent occupation.
But lo and behold Trump pulled the troops, and the Kurds are fine.
Trump said the attack on Soleimani was necessary to avoid a war.
That could prove to be a sound strategy if Iran stops its hostile actions.
