Somebody needs to get the license plate of the truck that Tucker Carlson just used to run over this poor anti-Trump protester.
Every once in a while, a clip comes along where a “liberal radical lefty” (Carlson’s words, not mine) gets a thorough dose of reality that they never saw coming.
The following is one of those moments.
Carlson, whose new show on Fox News is leveling the competition, invited Alex Uematsu, a Rutgers University student and organizer of anti-Trump protests, on his show.
Point by point, Carlson handed the young impressionable liberal a well-deserved intellectual spanking.
Watch the exchange below …
The Mental Recession was able to obtain footage of the exchange from a slightly different angle. It went something like this…
Either way, it was brutal.
Via Fox News Insider:
Tonight, Tucker Carlson took on Alex Uematsu, a Rutgers University student and organizer of anti-Trump protests.
Uematsu argued that the U.S. is a nation of immigrants, and anyone should be allowed to come to our country.
Carlson pointed out that most of the people entering the country illegally are low-wage workers who represent a net cost to taxpayers.
“You believe then that taxpayers have a moral obligation to subsidize anyone who wants to come here?” Carlson said.
He added that corporations and big businesses are in favor of illegal immigration, as it drives down wages and labor costs.
“Do you realize that you’re part of that?” Carlson asked. “They’re fully on your side with bringing [in] the low-wage labor … It benefits them too.”
Uematsu at one point argued that illegal immigration is actually a net benefit to the American economy, citing studies seemingly manufactured from the land of lollipops and unicorns.
“I’ve heard different figures,” he said.
Carlson countered, “You heard wrong because it’s actually not even close between education and infrastructure and healthcare, food subsidizes, housing subsidies but do you consider the effect this has on the rest of the population.”
He then asked the young student “Do you think people have a right to lock their doors?”
Carlson then moved toward delivering a knockout blow to the Bernie Sanders fan – explaining that his support of illegal immigration actually puts him on the side of – *GASP* – big business!
“Let me ask you this, I know that you’re a liberal radical lefty,” Carlson quipped. “I wonder if it occurs to you that you’re maybe doing the bidding of business when you advocate for low skill workers to come here. Why do you think people support low skill workers in this country? Because it lowers the labor cost and makes them more money. Do you realize that you’re part of that?”
The host reiterated his point, then urged Uematsu to “think about that overnight.”
Presumably whilst recovering and resting comfortably in his safe space. With the unlocked door.
