STEVE DOOCY (CO-HOST): Regarding turnout, are you saying it's hard to judge turnout and gauge Trump's turnout because these are people who there is no metric for at this point?
TUCKER CARLSON: They're trying to tie Trump to the Ku Klux Klan. They're playing the hardest racial politics I've ever seen in a presidential race right now. And there's only one reason they're doing it. Because they're worried that black voters aren't excited about Hillary Clinton. That's a huge, huge deal for them. That's why they're going this low because they feel they have no choice.
BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): Right. Even SNL helped them out.
CARLSON: But they're totally desperate. I mean, imagine the wreckage they're creating in saying something like that. It's so -- that's truly divisive. Trump can be divisive, for sure, but that's really divisive.
CARLSON: The KKK is one of our sort of ugliest historic relics. But it’s not a force in American life in 2016.
KILMEADE: It’s not a Republican force, either. It’s a Democratic force.
CARLSON: The whole thing is ridiculous. And they’re doing it with a straight face because they think they have to. It’s disgusting.
