Tucker Carlson: sick of being called racist for wanting border security. (Screenshot)

“I get the game – and, I’m sick of it,” Fox News’ Tucker Carlson told Univision’s Jorge Ramos Tuesday, when Ramos said calling for border security is actually thinly-veiled racist rhetoric.

Appearing on Carlson’s Fox News Channel program, Ramos claimed that “chain migration” is actually code for anti-Hispanic, anti-Asian racism:

“I think when President Trump uses the term 'chain migration,' those are code words. He’s really saying, ‘You know, I don't want more immigrants from Asia or Latin America coming from this country I want to stop that.’”

But, Carlson would have none of it, declaring he’d had enough of Ramos playing the race card to smear any opposing viewpoint and avoid honest debate:

“What you are doing rather than engage in an adult argument, using reason, you are accusing people you disagree with of bigotry, which is a little much, actually.”

“I get the game, actually, and I’m sick of it.”
