Fox News star Tucker Carlson had something to say about disgraced lawyer Michael Cohen’s testimony on Wednesday — and it’s exactly what America needs to hear.
Cohen’s testimony was a mockery, Carlson said. It was meant to distract America from what’s really going on.

And it’s all about feelings — not facts.
“The circus came to town,” Carlson said in his opening monologue, and he went on to say that was simply a repeat of what Democrats have been saying for years.
People in Washington “never tire of being shocked by what an incredibly bad man Donald Trump is” — and Cohen’s entire hearing was an echo chamber of the same character assassinations America has heard since the 2016 election.
Trump makes the Democrats and the media feel bad. So Cohen told them Trump is mean and nasty and makes people feel bad.
But what about the facts? Those were hard to find, Carlson pointed out.
What America did learn for a fact was that there’s zero evidence that Trump colluded with Russia. There was no mysterious trip to Prague by Cohen that the mainstream media claimed was proof of collusion. There is no secret blackmail tape that Russian dictator Vladimir Putin is holding over Trump that is the motivation for the president to collude.
Finally, the Democrats asked him point blank — was there any collusion?
“Based on what you know, did Mr. Trump lie about colluding and coordinating with the Russians at any point during the campaign?” Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz asked Cohen.
Wasserman-Schultz was forced to resign as the Democratic National Committee’s chairwoman for rigging the 2016 Democratic nomination in favor of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

“So as I stated in my testimony, I wouldn’t use the word ‘colluding’,” Cohen said. Fact. Then he pivoted and explained his feelings were different. “Was there something odd about the back and forth praise with President Putin? Yes, but I’m not really sure that I can answer that question in terms of collusion.”
In other words: No, there is zero evidence of any collusion.
But anti-Trump people in Washington say they feel like there was — and it makes them feel bad. So they hate the president.
That, folks, is the perfect summation of Cohen’s entire testimony on Wednesday. It’s the perfect summary of every anti-Trump politician, every alt-left protester, and every liberal media rant since Trump was elected.
There’s no facts. Just feelings that Trump is bad.
