Tucker Carlson appeared on Sean Hannity’s show last night to discuss the “game changer” video, trumpeted by the right-wing media, of Obama giving a speech about race in 2007.

Hannity pointed to Obama’s cadence, what he later referred to as “Al Gore preacher mode,” and which he thinks is different from Obama’s normal style because of the audience: “You notice the change in the way he delivers this speech before a predominantly African-American audience,” Hannity said.

Carlson agreed: “This accent is absurd. This is not the way Obama talks…he is telling a predominantly black audience something very clear. the federal government doesnt like you because you are black.”
