He called her a “deeply silly and unimpressive person” before showing her comments on CNN.

He went on to accuse Democrats like Duckworth of hating America:

“It’s long been considered out-of-bounds to question a person’s patriotism. It’s a very strong charge and we try not ever to make it. But in the face of all of this, the conclusion can’t be avoided. These people actually hate America. There’s no longer a question about that. And yet paradoxically at the same time, they desperately want to control America more than anything. And that leads to the most basic of all questions, can you really lead a country that you hate?”

Duckworth — a Purple Heart recipient who lost her legs in an attack when she served in Iraq — tweeted in response to the segment, “Does @TuckerCarlson want to walk a mile in my legs and then tell me whether or not I love America?”
