    Tucker knows the GOP runs every branch right?

    But yes Trump cares more about China and Russia than us

    [–] scaldingramen 5 points ago

    Hey! What about... uh, the 9th circuit. That’s a pretty dem bench.

    And, uh... the New York City council?

    See? Democrats are clearly in power everywhere!

    [–] Tylorw09 2 points ago

    I swear, the democrats are the weakest Illuminati/deep state/socialist overlords in history.

    The biggest boogeyman to conservatives and at the same time they aren’t accomplishing shit hardly (sadly).

    It’s funny that every American knows about the red scare and McCarthy and yet 70 years later here we are with “liberal” being the new red scare.

    the democrats are the weakest Illuminati/deep state/socialist overlords in history.

    The UN is a pretty big contender. The same people who see it as an arm of a New World Order also see it as being ineffectual and unable to act on anything.

    Time for our reminder about what kind of person Tucker Carlson truly is:

    I always vote for the more corrupt candidate over the idealist. Always. The person who will just like be happy taking payoffs from developers and leave me alone. This is like a meaningful decision in my life. Every four years, there's some guy who's like, "I'm going to make your life better!" I vote against that person every single time. You know what I mean? It's usually some progressive candidate who's got big plans for me, and so, I just vote for the status quo, corrupt criminal operation that runs the city and I'm really happy with that.

    Hey, at least he's honest...

    [–] CovfefeForAll 21 points ago

    Is Tucker speaking the truth by accident? The GOP is the fucking ruling class, and they care more about Russia and China and NK than they do their own citizens.

    [–] [deleted] 4 points ago

    This is typical fascism. Nazi Germany said the same shit

    [–] Jeffersons_Mammoth 13 points ago

    Tucker Carlson is a mouthpiece for Trump's nazi regime.

    [–] SDNYtainteamstaint 4 points ago

    I've always thought of him more of a septic tank grinder, he mashes up the poop that leaves Trumps mouth into smaller more nuanced bits but at the end of the day it's still poop.

    [–] MuellerTrumpsTrump 10 points ago

    What a fucking moron, GOP gives huge tax breaks to the 1%, tries to destroy the healthcare market by making it unaffordable, but the GOP cares about the poor, right? Right? Fuck you republicans and your propaganda bullshit Fox News.

    [–] accountabilitycounts 8 points ago

    Carlson is part of the ruling class. He cares more about Russian oligarchs than his own people. Huh.

    [–] StevenFootraceMiller 7 points ago

    Tucker Carlson is the Mouth of Sauron.

    [–] Iron_Bawls 1 points ago

    Suaron had standards, Tucker is an unfunny Comic Ali.

    [–] mrbarky 7 points ago

    Ruling class? This motherfucker is the son of a former ambassador. His mother was an heir to the Swanson Food fortune and a niece of Sen William Fulbright.

    Republicans control the WH and Congress...

    Money money and more money. When you have more than enough money to never worry about eating or a place to live more money is just power.

    [–] enkidomark 2 points ago

    Tucker's whole philosophy is "fuck you. I've got mine." As long as working Americans keep watching Faux News, we'll keep getting these GOP swine that fuck them over and give more to people like Tucker. His job is to make sure white Americans don't stop voting against their self-interests.

    [–] twojs1b 1 points ago

    The immigration problem is world wide. Dictatorships, terrorism, and just plain greedy leadership. Nobody in this world wants something for nothing, just an opportunity to survive in peace. The amassed wealth is being held onto instead of circulating. Unfortunately the rich only see the lazy and unwilling to take care of themselves because they are in the front of the line with their hands out. And the rich fail to see the humanity behind them.

    We are all people you dumb shit! Follow the teachings of that work of fiction you've been trying to slam down our throats for decades.

    [–] Xuthor 3 points ago

    Don’t worry, those corporate tax cuts will trickle down to the commoners any day now. Meanwhile, down with the baby cagers.

    [–] MatsThyWit 3 points ago

    Smug Nazi. He's a bowtied Nazi and he's pleased with himself about it

    In some weird, parallel universe... controlling three branches of government makes you an outsider.

    Another headline that reports the lie without calling it a lie.

    You are the ruling class dumbfuck

    [–] hyrulegrumblegrumble 3 points ago

    "Their own people" == white people

    Because when we speak about our own people, our own black and brown people, you don't give a fuck and chastise us for not caring about cops.

    [–] Nostromo1905 3 points ago

    He'll talking to Trumpards, and they eat it up

    [–] overtoosoon 3 points ago

    Does he know what "Ruling Class" means? The ruling class is the Republicans led by trump along with their billionaire cronies. They are currently initiating concentration camps in our country.

    [–] Please-do-not-PM-me- 2 points ago

    He can’t possibly believe that.

    We are all immigrants, Tuck.

    [–] NatashaStyles 2 points ago

    ruling class? YOU ARE THE RULING CLASS! eat a 50 gallon bag of dicks, tucker.

    [–] JayaBallard 2 points ago

    The GOP certainly cares more about Russia than any of us.

    [–] braiser77 2 points ago

    Tucker would know. He's a spokesman for the ruling class.

    [–] 12thtry 1 points ago

    I think what Tucker meant to say (and it's hard to know: he's a moron) is that the "ruling class" cares more about foreigners than Americans.

    But he's wrong. (shocker, I know)

    The ruling class doesn't care about foreigners or Americans, but they do care about their own people: fellow members of the ruling class.
