Biden’s ATF Pick Is Conspiracy Nut ‘Unhinged From Reality’

Fox News host Tucker Carlson dismantled President Joe Biden over his serial false statements regarding gun crime in America during a Rose Garden speech Thursday in which he announced several new executive actions against firearms.

But Carlson saved some of his most venomous criticism for the man Biden has picked to run the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, David Chipman, whom the host described as “a conspiracy nut” and exactly the wrong person to run that particular agency.

Chipman, Carlson noted, made the comments last year regarding the federal government’s 1993 siege of the Branch Davidian compound near Waco, Texas, which was eventually burned to the ground due to actions taken by the FBI and ATF. Chipman claimed that Davidians used .50 caliber rifles to shoot down two FBI helicopters, which is absolutely untrue.

“At Waco, cult members used 2 .50 caliber Barretts to shoot down two Texas Air National Guard helicopters. Point, it is true we are fortunate they are not used in crime more often,” Chipman stated in response to a Reddit “Ask Me Anything” event.

Davidians did reportedly shot at and damage three government helicopters, but none of them were shot down and no federal agents were hurt.

Turning to the president’s newest anti-gun executive actions, “to enforce them, Joe Biden has nominated a man who is unhinged from reality: David Chipman,” Carlson said on his show on Thursday.

“Who is David Chipman? Well, he is a conspiracy nut for one thing.”

“In 1993, the ATF killed dozens of innocent children and at least one pregnant woman for no obvious reason. It’s one of the worst things that federal agents have ever done in this country,” the Fox News host said, noting that four ATF agents were killed along with 82 Branch Davidians.

“If you’re taking over the ATF, maybe you could apologize for that. But no, David Chipman lied about it and then attacked the dead.”
