Cable news host Tucker Carlson on Tuesday took issue with President Obama‘s support of quarterback Michael Vick‘s stunning turnaround, saying that he thought Vick “should have been executed” for his crimes.
Carlson, who is guest-hosting the Fox News program “Hannity” this week, made the remark during a discussion about Obama’s call to Eagles‘ owner Jeffrey Lurie in which the President said he was happy the team gave the troubled quarterback a second chance after he was convicted of running a dog fighting ring.
“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.”
