The record-breaking host of Fox News channel, Tucker Carlson, once again spoke for many conservatives on Monday when he called out the United States “ruling class” the day before the 2020 presidential election, calling them “disgusting” and pointing to the damage that the shadow rules will do if former Vice President Joe Biden takes the White House.
Carlson said that he believes that a vote for President Donald Trump on election day was a vote against the “disgusting” ruling class in his no-holds-barred diatribe against Democrats on Monday.
“We are just hours away from the national election and suddenly there is so much going on, so much news it is impossible to metabolize,” Carlson said. “Claims and slogans and rumors coming in from every direction. Been online recently? Checked your phone? It’s overwhelming. We’re going to have the very latest news throughout the hour tonight.
Carlson talked about how they would like to present the election process in one image: “The picture is from a town called Butler, Pennsylvania, it’s 35 miles north of Pittsburgh. The president held a rally there over the weekend,” the Fox News host said, going on to talk about the industrial town where railcars were made for years, but that has been hemorrhaging population for decades.
“They still have nice people in Butler. For 60 grand, you can buy a decent house there. It’s a place you might be happy in, but our professional class is not impressed by Butler. They don’t consider Butler, Pennsylvania, or places like it, the future,” Carlson said. “To them, places like Butler are embarrassing relics of a past best forgotten, the men of Butler may have built this country and they did but they mean nothing to our leaders now.”
The Fox News host then talked about the epidemic of narcotics that plagued Butler, a pandemic that Washington didn’t seem concerned about. “There have been so many opioid deaths in Butler that a few years ago, residents built an overdose memorial in the middle of town. MSNBC didn’t cover that. Given all of that, it was interesting how the people around Butler feel about Donald Trump.”
Carlson then showed a photo of the president’s rally in Butler on Saturday night, which showed tens of thousands of individuals in a crowd so large that they couldn’t be gathered into one photo and see the definition of the people, “It looked like a visit from the Pope,” Carlson said.
“When was the last time a political speech drew that many people? Well, the media didn’t ask,” The Fox News host said. “Instead, they attacked the rallies as a super-spreader event, Trump endangers thousands in Pennsylvania.
Carlson went on to talk about how the mainstream media has spun the narrative around the Coronavirus pandemic and the election in general, saying that no matter what the media has to say about the president, what they’re not saying might be more telling. They’re not focusing on any of the faults from the left, they’re only slinging mud at the president.
“Whatever Donald Trump faults, he’s better than the people in charge,” Carlson said. “At least he doesn’t hate them for their weakness. Donald Trump in other words is and has always been a living indictment of the people who run this country, that was true four years ago when Trump came out of nowhere to win the presidency and it’s every bit as true right now, maybe even more true than it’s ever been and it will remain true regardless of whether Donald Trump wins reelection.”
“Trump grows because they failed, it’s as simple as that. The people in charge had done a halfway decent job with the country they inherited, if they cared about anything other than themselves even for just a moment, Donald Trump would still be hosting ‘Celebrity Apprentice,’ but they didn’t. Instead, they were incompetent and narcissistic and cruel and relentlessly dishonest. They wrecked what they didn’t build, they lied about it. They hurt anyone who told the truth about what they were doing. That’s true. We watched.
“America is still the great country, the best in the world, but our ruling class is disgusting. A vote for Trump is a vote against them. That’s what’s going on in that picture, that’s what’s going on in this country.”
