Fox News host Tucker Carlson said Wednesday that the Biden administration and its cronies in the Democratic Party are putting America’s biggest problems on the backburner to focus on their progressive agenda.
In a scathing opening monologue on his self-titled Fox News program, Carlson lambasted Biden and Democrats for prioritizing climate change and the COVID-19 pandemic over America’s economy, particularly as inflation seems to be spiraling out of control.
“If you think COVID or climate change or police brutality or Iran is a bigger threat to the United States than the devaluation of the U.S. dollar, then you by definition should not be making meaningful decisions,” Carlson said, according to Breitbart.
“You’re a moron,” he added.
“This is not a small development”
Carlson said Wednesday that it’s clear inflation is a growing problem — and one that’s affecting Americans from border to border.
“It feels like this country is losing control of inflation,” Carlson said. “It feels like it’s getting worse.”
He warned viewers:
This is not a small development. Inflation will make this country poor and it will do it faster than anything else will. Anyone who doesn’t understand that intuitively is an idiot or is irresponsible or both.
“In Dallas over the weekend, a bottle of water was going for $8.00,” Carlson observed, according to Breitbart. “That’s water which we used to get for free from the sky, now eight bucks, and people are paying it, too; if you were thirsty in Downtown Dallas on Saturday morning, you didn’t really have a choice.”
Of course, Carlson isn’t wrong: Everyone from the White House to the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) and its chief Dr. Anthony Fauci seems to believe that lockdowns and business closures brought on the by the pandemic are necessary evils, ignoring their effects on the economy as COVID-19 continues to spread nearly two years after it was first discovered in the U.S.
The president and Democrats are also ignoring the economic crisis to pursue multitrillion-dollar legislation aimed at combating climate change. And they have the audacity to claim it won’t actually cost anything.
“How dumb are these people?” Carlson asked Wednesday, as Breitbart reported. “Well, they assume that everybody else is just like them and that’s always the hallmark of true stupidity.”
Only time will tell whether Americans are actually buying what Dems in Washington are trying to sell.
