Ricochet is the best place on the internet to discuss the issues of the day, either through commenting on posts or writing your own for our active and dynamic community in a fully moderated environment. In addition, the Ricochet Audio Network offers over 50 original podcasts with new episodes released every day.
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.
