Tucker Carlson warned that America’s current state of “economic craziness” may soon lead to a presidential run by a “vacuous idiot” like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
The Fox News host argued in his “Tucker Carlson Tonight” monologue Friday that long-term unemployment and the condition of the U.S. economy amid the coronavirus pandemic will see the rich “getting richer” while “everyone else is getting poorer.” The crisis created by politicians in the wake of COVID-19 will pave the way for Ocasio-Cortez to become president in 2024, Carlson warned.
“There are already an awful lot of socialists around these days. Have you noticed that? Why is that? It’s because the people in charge of our economy are discrediting our system,” the Fox News host told viewers near the end of his monologue on Friday.
“They are giving capitalism a bad name because what they are participating in is not a market economy, a free open market economy. It’s a closed game, run for their own benefit, and their benefit alone. Long term, this is a disaster for all of us, and not even so far in the future,” he added.

“In four years, ‘Sandy Cortez’ will be eligible to run for president,” Carlson warned. “You may laugh at ‘Sandy Cortez’ – and you should – she’s a vacuous idiot, another rich girl narcissist with a Twitter account but that doesn’t mean she couldn’t win.”
“If we keep up with this nonsense, this economic craziness, she could win,” he added.
Carlson’s lengthy monologue highlighted how the so-called experts got so much wrong in 2020 and how the rich and powerful in America stand to benefit the most from policies that Democrats will be pushing.
“If you still don’t know that dishonest people can easily manipulate data to tell you any story they want to tell you, consider the condition of our economy,” the Fox News host said earlier in his remarks. “There are a lot more billionaires than there ever have been in this country…At the same time, the unemployment rate is falling, so it’s all good, right?”
“Well, that is one way to look at it, but it’s not the whole story. America has a very different economy now from the economy we had even just last year. People at the very top are thriving, but many other Americans are withering away,” Carlson continued.
“Tens of thousands of independent businesses have been shut down for good, entire sectors of the economy have been wiped off the map. That’s a lot of people out of work. So where are they? Why does the federal government tell us the unemployment rate is down?” he asked.
“Here’s the simple answer: The official unemployment numbers don’t count unemployed people who have stopped looking for jobs, and there are a lot of those,” Carlson continued.
“So what is our government’s solution to the disaster they created? Well, more money from the Federal Reserve, printed out of nowhere and backed by nothing. Trillions of new dollars spent to fix a problem they created, and more on the way soon,” he said. “Keep in mind, this is stimulus money, designed to help those hurt by the lockdowns.”
The Fox News host pointed out that in many instances, the money has “gone to people with the right political connections,” citing the example of Rev. Raphael Warnock, who is currently running for Senate in Georgia and “raked in $482,000 in coronavirus bailout money.”
“How did he do that? Don’t ask,” Carlson told viewers, going on to name other examples.
“That’s all our money, but the good news is that pretty soon it won’t be worth much. You can’t keep printing trillions of dollars without getting serious inflation. There’s no getting around it,” he said.
“The people making these decisions know that perfectly well. But that’s the secret: They want inflation. In fact, they need inflation. Why? Because they’ve gotten rich from debt. That’s the real economy. Leverage is their entire business model,” he added.
“So inflation may crush you, but it will make the people making the decisions richer. Everyone else — regular wage earners, people living on fixed income, every middle-class retiree in the country, anyone who bothered to live like a responsible person and save money — will be in serious trouble when inflation arrives,” Carlson warned.
He explained that Democrats will be pushing to pass the HEROES Act if they succeed in taking over the Senate after Georgia’s runoff elections next month.
“Just who are these heroes they plan to help? Not the thousands of small business owners whose lives they destroyed. No, this legislation will help rich people in the Northeast who were hurt by the Trump administration’s last tax cuts,” Carlson said.
“Here’s the bottom line: The rich are getting richer, everyone else is getting poorer. That’s not a talking point. It’s true and measurable,” he contended.
“Why is it a problem? Because if it continues, we’re going to wind up with an even more volatile society in which everybody hates each other and is consumed by envy,” he added. “Along the way, capitalism itself will be discredited, and you don’t want that.”
