While hosting the Friday broadcast of his show “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” Fox News’s Tucker Carlson suggested actress Jennifer Lawrence’s soul was in a poor state after she appeared to say that Hurricanes Irma and Harvey were manifestations of mother nature’s rage in response to President Trump’s election.
Lawrence, Carlson argued, was “using the storm — and the impending human suffering — to make a really stupid political statement.” After Carlson’s guest, The Hill’s Media Reporter Joe Concha, harped on the privileged nature of Lawrence’s life and her suggestion that the United States had “bad karma” after Trump’s election, Carlson said he noticed that “being a celebrity is bad for your soul.”
On Wednesday, Lawrence lamented to British television the fact that people denied humanity’s influence on climate change, and made the statement that prompted Carlson’s segment on her. “You know, you’re watching these hurricanes now, and it’s really hard, especially while promoting this movie, not to, not to feel Mother Nature’s rage, or wrath,” she said.
Those comments were so outrageous, Carlson suggested, that one would expect major media outlets to cover them. According to Concha, however, media coverage was limited to conservative outlets.
Concha and Carlson piled on Lawrence during the segment, with Concha diagnosing Lawrence with “Trump Derangement Syndrome”
“Let me give you my prognosis on Jennifer Lawrence. She’s obviously suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome, or in this case it’s an acute strain — A.D.T.S. — and this is a situation where apparently, side effects are, include blaming a sitting president for hurricanes hitting the U.S. mainland during Hurricane season.”
