'Jesus in aviators': Tucker Carlson attacks coverage of Biden's Congress address saying it was like media performing a 'series of symbolic sex acts' upon the President

 Tucker Carlson has attacked media coverage of Joe Biden's Congressional address, saying networks performed a 'series of symbolic sex acts' upon the President, and acted like he was 'Jesus in aviator glasses'.

Speaking on Fox News' 'Tucker Carlson Tonight' on Thursday, the outspoken host mocked the positive media coverage of Biden's address, that was given at the end of the president's first 100 days in office.

'Wait a second! Was that the President of the United States talking? No, that's what you thought. In fact, it was Jesus in aviator glasses,' Carlson joked in reference to the way news networks reacted to Biden's Wednesday speech.


The channel played at a series of clips showing other networks' appraisals by various commentators, the hyperbole of which Carlson soon set about chastising. 

'Technically, Biden is now the president of the United States, the most powerful man in the world. Maybe someone, somewhere ought to keep track of what he’s doing,' Carlson told his viewers.

'But no, reporters covered Joe Biden like he’s an actor on a press tour for the hot new summer blockbuster alongside his dazzling co-star, Kamala.'

MSNBC's Brian Williams said that the president's first address to Congress was 'Rooseveltian in size and scope' and that his 'use of voice modulation was rather extraordinary'.

Nicolle Wallace, also of MSNBC, declared: 'His connections to the people in this room – I'm not even sure all of them are deserving of them – but he does not care. He gives to them the benefit of the doubt.' 

CNN's Van Jones described the speech as 'really beautiful' and complimented Biden's 'grandfatherly voice', also saying he's 'developing a kind of positive populism.'


NBC's Andrea Mitchell said that the president 'talked about the soul of America, and that was so passionate when he talked about the knee of injustice of the neck of Black America.' 

Martha Raddatz of ABC claimed Biden was 'really trying to bring the country together. It was a Make America Feel Good night.'

But Carlson was having none of it, mocking them all for their adulation of Biden, who in his hour-long speech announced sweeping tax hikes, attacked Wall Street, said he inherited a country in 'peril' and laid out a list of legislative demands.

'What Joe Biden said was beautiful. It was intimate. Grandfatherly. Indeed, Rooseveltian. Joe Biden spoke to the soul of America,' Carlson imitated.

'He connected with people who didn’t even deserve to be connected with. Hopeless sinners, redeemed by his voice alone — a voice that is not, and we want to be clear about this, the fading monotone of a 78-year-old man losing his grip. 

'No, it’s not. Joe Biden’s voice modulates. It has the capacity to change pitch in a way that is — and we’re quoting now — "rather extraordinary."' 

Changing to a more serious tone to address his audience, Carson continued.

'We could keep going with this, if we wanted — cable news is a rich vein — but we’ll stop now and return to reality. 

'A powerful politician gave a speech about how he plans to change your life. So, we feel obliged to tell you what he said and not simply commit a series of symbolic sex acts upon him.'

The host then launched into an analysis of Biden's speech, in which the president - to 200 lawmakers - pitched his $2.3trillion 'blue-collar blueprint' American Jobs Plan, pushed his $1.8trillion investment into 'human infrastructure' and spoke about how he will try and deal with the border, China, guns and police reform.

Biden also handed over more responsibility to Vice President Kamala Harris by asking her to promote his investment in 'jobs, jobs, jobs' and insisted she would 'get it done', a month after directing her to deal with the border. 

His two new proposals  - a $2.3trillion American Jobs Plan and his $1.8trillion American Families Plan - come after Congress already passed his $1.9 trillion American Rescue Package in March.

Biden plans to pay for his new plans with a series of taxes - first on raising the corporate tax rate and other revenue increases to pay for his infrastructure-heavy jobs proposal.

To pay for his American Families Plan, Biden laid out his plan to finance it by raising taxes on the top 0.3 percent of American income earners. 'Look, I'm not out to punish anyone. But I will not add to the tax burden of the middle class of this country,' Biden said.

Biden said there were 'good guys and women on Wall Street – but Wall Street didn't build this country. The middle class built the country. And unions built the middle class.'

Biden also insisted he would help end the 'exhaustive war' on immigration by giving 11 million migrants a path to citizenship and urging Congress to pass legislation to make the border more secure.

Biden said the American system of government was at stake. 

'We have to prove democracy still works, that our government still works and we can deliver for our people,' he said. 

Having beat back progressive primary challengers and pushed major government interventions in the economy through taxes and spending, Biden put a focus on the wealthy and demanded measures to bring more economic equality.

The president said 650 billionaires in the nation saw their net worth increase by a collective $1 trillion during the pandemic and made the point that money didn't move down the chain.

'My fellow Americans, trickle-down economics has never worked. It's time to grow the economy from the bottom up and middle-out,' he said.

Biden pitched his plan to raise the top income tax bracket to 39.6 per cent for those making more than $400,000 a year.

'That's where it was when George W. Bush became president,' he said, after bashing the 'big tax cut of 2017' enacted under Trump.

'It was supposed to pay for itself and generate vast economic growth. Instead it added $2 trillion to the deficit,' he said.

'We're going to get rid of the loopholes that allow Americans who make more than $1 million a year pay a lower rate on their capital gains than working Americans pay on their work,' Biden said. 

'This will only affect three tenths of 1% of all Americans. And the IRS will crack down on millionaires and billionaires who cheat on their taxes,' he added.

Republicans widely panned the speech as 'boring' and a list of 'socialist dreams'. 

GOP Senator Tim Scott said in his party's rebuttal that the president was 'pulling the country apart' instead of promoting unity and his remarks were 'full of empty platitudes'. 

'We should be expanding options and opportunities for all families,' said Scott, who preached a message of optimism while remaining a loyal supporter of former President Donald Trump, 'not throwing money at certain issues because Democrats think they know best.'

Citing the partisan battle over Biden's $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief bill, which Congress approved over unanimous GOP opposition, Scott said: 'We need policies and progress that bring us closer together. But three months in, the actions of the president and his party are pulling us further apart.'
