Last night a friend of mine (a former Ricochet member) e-mailed me the following video clip. This clip is of a speech that Fox News host Tucker Carlson gave to the International Association of Fire Fighters back in March:
His description of DC sounds much like academia, and just as with Republicans in the former, most academic Republicans can’t stand Trump either. It is a matter of social class snobbery? Perhaps. But despite being an academic myself, I’ve never harbored such elitist attitudes. Blame it all on my roots.
I laughed when Carlson described life in DC involving regular two-hour lunches for which he never paid. Can confirm from my days working on a congressional staff aeons ago.
Will DC Republicans ever wise up? Don’t count on it.
