Tucker Carlson has a long record of saying it like it is.
Keeping with his reputation, the Fox News host gave a very detailed monologue this week explaining why the political class hates America.
And he just blew the lid off one of the biggest scandals in American history.
Tucker Carlson took a moment to explain why Mitt Romney decided to attack President Trump in his op-ed on Wednesday.
The Fox News host dissected Romney’s motivations and how they serve as part of a greater trend in American politics.
His conclusion was stunning.
Carlson pointed out that Romney’s comments were just the latest in a longstanding “feud” between himself and the President.
Carlson called it a “window” into how politicians in both parties view America.
Carlson duly noted that Romney attacked President Trump’s decision to pull troops out of Syria when Congress had never authorized any war in Syria to begin with, and that he never offered to explain how staying in Syria has benefited the average American.
Carlson went on to say:
“Romney refers to unwavering support for a finance-based economy and an internationalist foreign policy as the “mainstream Republican” view. He’s right. For generations, Republicans have considered it their duty to make the world safe for banking, while simultaneously prosecuting ever more foreign wars.”
“Modern Democrats generally support these goals. There are signs, however, that most people do not support this, and not just in America. In countries around the world…What you’re watching is populations revolting against leaders who refuse to improve their lives.”
Carlson then dove into the cultural and societal decay that has gripped the country for decades—which leaders such as Romney have failed to address.
The Fox News host pointed out that material progress and prosperity no longer represent the fulfillment Americans used to think it did, adding, “Anyone who thinks the health of a nation can be summed up in GDP is an idiot.”
Carlson then took his monologue towards an indictment against not just Romney, but the entire political class.
“We are ruled by mercenaries who feel no long-term obligation to the people they rule. They’re day traders. Substitute teachers. They’re just passing through. They have no skin in this game, and it shows. They can’t solve our problems. They don’t even bother to understand our problems.”
Carlson clearly illustrated what motivated Romney to write his op-ed against the President.
Romney is unable to connect with the average American, and he never will.
What drove Romney to attack the President is what drives nearly everyone politically connected to D.C. to attack Trump.
Unlike Trump, they don’t understand the rest of America.
The political class can’t comprehend the pain, hopelessness, or isolation millions of Americans are facing in the present culture of our society.
They can’t comprehend why they rejected the status quo and voted for Donald Trump in 2016.
The establishment on both sides of the aisle doesn’t care to change their approach because it has worked so well for them in the past 30 years.
Carlson pointed out that Romney is no different from the same politicians Trump repudiated in 2016, and that’s what feeds his feud with the President to this day.
