Fox News Star Endorses Dem Candidate's Plan
Fox News Superstar Tucker Carlson made waves Wednesday night when he came out in favor of Democratic Presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren's Economic plan, slamming many establishment Republicans in the process. As The Daily Caller reports:
Fox News host Tucker Carlson slammed Republican politicians on Wednesday for abandoning the economic nationalism that their base voted for in 2016 in order to appease the libertarian donors to whom they are beholden.
“In Washington, almost nobody speaks for the majority of voters,” Carlson said on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”
“You’re either a libertarian zealot controlled by the banks, yammering on about entrepreneurship and how we need to cut entitlements — that’s one side of the aisle — or, worse, you’re some decadent trust fund socialist who wants to ban passenger cars and give Medicaid to illegal aliens. That’s the other side,” he continued. “There isn’t a caucus that represents where most Americans actually are: nationalist on economics, fairly traditional on the social issues.”
Carlson began the segment by quoting a section of Democratic presidential hopeful and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s “Plan for Economic Patriotism” and asking his right-leaning audience if they disagree with the statement. Warren revealed the proposal on Tuesday, which she referred to as an “aggressive intervention on behalf of American workers.”
Has Tucker sold out to Socialist economics? Or is his call for a more "Nationalist economics" exactly what America needs? You be the judge.
