Tucker C Battles Environmental Fruitcake: “You Got The Hand Gestures Down, But The Argument Leaves Something To Be Desired”
Fox News host Tucker Carlson asked a liberal environmental activist to give one concrete reason why she opposed President-elect Donald Trump’s pick to head the EPA. She couldn’t, and instead went on an unhinged rant.
Carlson’s guest was Erin Schrode, a former Democratic California House candidate, who compared Trump to Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler, as both were dubbed TIME’s “Man of The Year.”
Their conversation quickly shifted to Scott Pruitt, the Oklahoma attorney general who is Trump’s pick to lead the EPA.
“You don’t actually know anything about what you’re talking about, and you’re throwing out a lot of allegations as if someone were against clean air or for mercury,” Carlson told Schrode during the interview. “Is there another side to the case? Do you understand their position or does that not even interest you, learning what they think?”
“It’s not about learning what they think!” Schrode furiously replied. “It’s about the fact that this man, who is the head of the EPA, the nominee, has already acted about the things on which we’re speaking. He has sued to lessen the regulations from an environmental and public health standpoint.”
