President Obama recently called Philadelphia Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie to congratulate him on the teams success this year, and for giving Michael Vick a second chance.
The call was enough to once again rile up those who feel like Vick hasn’t suffered enough for his role in a dog fighting ring. Never mind the fact that Vick served 19 months in prison, became a national disgrace and lost millions of dollars for his transgression.
Some people want the man to pay with his life, Tucker Carlson is one of those people.
Carlson is guest hosting Fox News’ ‘Hannity’ show this week. During a discussion about Obama’s call to Lurie, Carlson criticized the President for supporting Vick getting a second chance and said the football player should have been put to death for his crime.
"I'm a Christian, I've made mistakes myself, I believe fervently in second chances, but Michael Vick killed dogs, and he did [it] in a heartless and cruel way," Carlson said. "And I think personally he should have been executed for that. He wasn't. But the idea that the President of the United States would be getting behind someone who murdered dogs [is] kind of beyond the pale."
What's your take on Carlson's comments? Do you think Fox should fire him? Or was what he said ok in your opinion?
