Tucker Carlson came out firing last night and his target was the GOP. He issued a stern warning to the GOP, blasting their inability to defend US workers because theyâ€™re in servitude to the Koch Brothers, corporatism & libertarian economic theory.
He then went on to praise Liz Warrenâ€™s economic patriotism plan and he is not wrong either. He reminded the GOP that “she sounds like Donald Trump at his best.”
From Axios: Fox News host Tucker Carlson praised 2020 Democratic candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warrenâ€™s “economic patriotism” plan during his Wednesday show, quoting the policy at length before saying “she sounds like Donald Trump at his best.”
The big picture: Carlson emphasized that he believes most Republicans would agree with the elements of Warrenâ€™s proposal that deal with “creating and defending good American jobs,” saying that many of her policies “make obvious sense.”
Yes, but: Carlson also described the Massachusetts senator as a “race-hustling, gun-grabbing abortion extremist.”
He also neglected to mention the environmental aspects of Warrenâ€™s “Green Manufacturing Plan,” which largely focuses on using American manufacturing and jobs to develop the technology needed to power the Green New Deal.
What he said during his segment:
“She says the US government should buy American products when it can. And of course it should. She says we need more workplace apprenticeship programs because four-year college degrees arenâ€™t right for everyone. Well, thatâ€™s true. She says that taxpayers ought to benefit from the research and development that they pay for. …
She sounds like Donald Trump at his best!”
