The Biden administration has an “everything’s fine” approach to the train derailment.
This is despite the toxic chemical emissions which are a danger to people in the area.
Tucker Carlson blasted Joe Biden for downplaying the highly toxic Ohio train derailment.
The explosive derailment of a train carrying toxic chemicals in East Palestine, Ohio last week spewed more harmful pollutants into the air.
One of the substances released was “phosgene, a gas deployed as a chemical weapon across First World War battlefields.”
Fox News host Tucker Carlson slammed Joe Biden on Monday for the way he handled the Ohio train derailment.
“We don’t want to second-guess anybody, we’ve got to assume everybody involved is doing their best under a highly stressful situation, but did you see that mushroom cloud?” Carlson asked. “That was caused on purpose and maybe there was a good reason, again, no second-guessing, but what it means is those clouds of toxic smoke flew up and out and that toxic smoke almost immediately began killing animals and dead fish washing up on the shore. As one hazardous materials specialist put it, ‘We basically nuked the town with chemicals.’”
Democrat Pennsylvania Gov. Josh Shapiro claimed that the “controlled” vent and burn of toxic chemicals at the train derailment went “as planned,” and “no concerning” air and water quality readings were detected.
“So then representatives from the EPA, the Environmental Protection Agency arrived to restore calm. Yes, an EPA spokesperson, explained that chemicals from the derailed train did enter the local water shed and, yes, they did kill fish, but the drinking water supply remains totally safe,” Carlson said. “The fish are dead, but go ahead and fill your thermos and brew some coffee. Everything’s fine,” Carlson continued.
“Now, we don’t know if the locals in East Palestine are drinking the water tonight but we can tell you that the Joe Biden administration doesn’t seem very concerned about either way,” Carlson added. “Donald Trump got over 71% of the vote in the county in the last presidential election, so that is not exactly the Democratic Party’s core demographic. Fentanyl, toxic waste spill, whatever they are not our voters, and by the way, what does a chemical spill have to do with climate change?”
Carlson then slammed Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg for being more concerned with there being too many white men in the construction industry rather than the serious infrastructure that’s in jeopardy.
“So nobody is paying attention to the most critical infrastructure? Not the racist roads, but food, water, energy, transportation infrastructure,” Carlson said. “Food, water, energy, infrastructure, what does that add up to? That adds up to a country. You cannot have a country without those things.”
