Trump's Ambassador Finds Few Friends in Germany

Tucker Carlson's worldview doesn't come across as particularly complex. It can be summed up in three words: Foreigners threaten America. That's all that's needed for good ratings.

His show on the right-wing Fox News channel is among the most successful political shows on American cable TV. The mouthpiece of the American neo-Nazis, the Daily Stormer, has described him as "literally our greatest ally." His most prominent viewer is Donald Trump.

In late November, "Tucker Carlson Tonight" once again tackled the subject of immigration, and, not for the first time, Germany. On the show, "Lessons from Germany" appeared in big red letters next to a photo of a grim German Chancellor Angela Merkel, her face framed by a Russian and a Turkish flag.

Carlson was joined by a special guest from Berlin, a man with short, gelled hair sitting before a backdrop of the nighttime Brandenburg Gate dressed in a suit jacket but no tie: U.S. Ambassador Richard Grenell. The 52-year-old has been Trump's man in the German capital since May.

Carlson was happy to cede the spotlight for the interview. After all, Grenell didn't need much encouragement. He had been a pundit on Fox News for a long time and knew what was expected of him. He is not known for keeping his opinions to himself.


This is just the sort of thing that you don't get when you stick to FOX News and CNN.

Think about it.
