Tucker Carlson (Fox News)Tucker Carlson spared no one in his take on the troubles plaguing the nation.

The Fox News Channel's program host started his show Monday night with a nearly half-hour-long broadside that summed up the frustration of a lot of Americans over the unrest roiling the country. He took on all comers.

"The nation went up in flames this weekend," he began. "No one in charge stood up to save America. Our leaders dithered; they cowered; they openly sided with the destroyers. In many cases, they egged them on."

He lit into Capitol Hill politicians – both Democrats and Republicans.

"Some Democrats have openly embraced what is happening – [but] really, they don't have much of a choice," Carlson offered. "These are their voters cleaning out the Rolex store. These riots effectively are the largest Joe Biden for President rally on record."

He continued: "On Friday, as American cities were being destroyed by mobs, the Vice President of the United States refused to say anything specific about the riots we were watching on television. Instead, Mike Pence scolded America for its racism."

Carlson said what the country is experiencing is not political protest, but an attack on the idea of politics. The rioters, he argued, are trying to topple America's political system.

Then he called on President Donald Trump to take decisive action.

"What Americans want most right now is an end to this chaos. They want their cities to be saved. They want this to stop immediately," he stated.

Then he offered this warning: "If the commander-in-chief cannot stop it, he will lose in November. The left will blame him for the atrocities they encouraged, and some voters will agree. Donald Trump is the president. Presidents save countries. That's their job. That's why we hire them. It's that simple."
