Fox News host Tucker Carlson simply eviscerated President Joe Biden and White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre for labeling anyone who disagrees with them on economic policy as racist while silencing free speech in an attempt to stave off a discussion over skyrocketing inflation.
“The United States is not in danger of becoming Venezuela next week, but we are moving closer to it. Inflation is a big part of the reason. Of all the economic crises the country can face, inflation is the most dangerous. Inflation doesn’t just make people poor. It totally destroys their confidence in their leaders, the authorities who issued the now worthless currency they’re using for toilet paper. Inflation is not an act of God like a drought or hurricane. It’s an act of negligence, like drunk driving. It is proof that the people in charge are reckless and stupid. That’s why inflation tends to topple governments,” Carlson noted on his show Wednesday.
“Once you get inflation, there’s no pretending you’ve done a good job. You have not done a good job and everybody knows it,” he continued.
“So, you can see why the Biden administration is very worried about this. Joe Biden has historically low approval ratings. Voters say inflation is their top concern. Those two facts are directly related. Biden’s most pressing task right now is reassuring Americans that he understands they’re suffering under inflation and under a rapidly worsening economy, and he’s got a plan to fix it. If he can’t convince Americans of that, it may be a long time before we have another Democratic president,” Carlson added.
“Thankfully, Joe Biden has a plan, or at least a new publicist, a silver-tongued wordsmith/policy guru called Karine Jean-Pierre. It is Karine Jean-Pierre’s job to take this message of economic hope to the American people and save the Biden administration,” he snarked.

“It’s a new day, America. How do you feel? You still can’t afford to have your refrigerator fixed or go to the dentist. On the other hand, Karine Jean-Pierre has good news for you about herself. Karine Jean-Pierre has just reached a highly significant personal goal and understandably, she’s brimming with self-esteem. Congratulations, Karine Jean-Pierre. Your promotion is America’s promotion. Hope it feels good. You’re going to want to hold on to that sensation, the one you’re now experiencing, and treasure it in the days ahead like a hand warmer as America becomes poorer than you ever imagined possible, and it is,” Carlson stated tearing into Jean-Pierre.
“As of tonight, parents across the country can’t find baby formula. Oh, no big deal. Well, it is actually a big deal because as a result of that, several children have just been hospitalized in the state of Tennessee. Fertilizer prices, meanwhile, have hit record highs. That will mean food shortages around the world. Famine in some places, starvation. It’ll mean shortages here. Food inflation, Bloomberg reports, will ‘leave no household unscathed’ and then gas prices also just hit an all-time high. They’re not going down,” the conservative host asserted.
Our growing food shortage crisis is self-inflicted – no surprise to those of us who know that anti-energy policy, regulatory burdens and economic uncertainty have a devastating impact on farmers and consumers.

“So, that’s scary, but the scariest fact of all, we appear to be running out of energy. Congress never passed the Green New Deal, but we somehow got it anyway, and here are the results. According to The Wall Street Journal, ‘From California to Texas to Indiana, electric grid operators are warning that power generating capacity is struggling to keep up with demand. That gap could lead to rolling blackouts during heat waves or other peak periods as soon as this year.’ In other words, turn on your air conditioning in August and it won’t work and neither will your lights,” Carlson contended.
“The Midcontinent Independent System operator, which oversees the energy grid in the Midwest, says it’s preparing to ‘take emergency measures in advance of capacity issues this summer.’ In other words, no more electricity. The North American Electric Reliability Corporation, which oversees energy output in the country, released an assessment this year saying the entire western U.S. is ‘at risk of energy emergencies due to the limited supply of electricity available for transfer,'” Carlson reported.
The Biden Administration is entirely responsible for our fuel costs and shortage by shutting down our energy independence – something that Pres. Trump had up and running. Biden shut it down! – forcing the US to, once again, beg for fuel from OPEC. Pathetic!!!

“So, this has never happened. It’s happening now. Why? Why is this happening? Well, according to The Wall Street Journal, ‘the challenge is that wind and solar farms, which are among the cheapest forms of power generation, don’t produce electricity at all times and need large batteries to store their output for later use,'” the Fox News host stated.
Following Jean-Pierre’s lame response to Fox News correspondent Peter Doocy when asked about taxes and inflation, Carlson nailed the press secretary over it.
“Now, you wouldn’t have thought it was possible to take talking points that stupid, that barely literate, that childish, and make them even dumber and yet, that’s exactly what she did. Are you still not convinced that Joe Biden knows how to handle inflation? Did that rattle your confidence rather than bolster it? Then honestly, there’s nothing we can do for you at this point. You’re beyond reach,” he noted.
Watch what happens when Peter Doocy asks the new White House press secretary how raising taxes on the rich brings down inflation, as Biden tweeted last week.

When asked this week about inflation, Biden’s new Press Secretary couldn’t even answer the question. That shows you just how seriously he’s taking this economic crisis. Personnel is policy.

“In fact, you know what you are, and you may have seen this coming – you’re a racist. That’s what we call people who continue to ask complicated, long questions about Joe Biden’s economic program. They’re racists, and getting rid of them is America’s greatest problem,” Carlson quipped.
“Free speech is white supremacy, says Chuck Todd. It’s white supremacy, free speech. Talking out of turn, reading your own script rather than the one that Chuck Todd provides you is white supremacy. That means if you’re upset about food shortages or blackouts, you’re a racist – racist, racist, racist,” he remarked.
“There you are complaining again about the precipitous decline in your standard of living. That’s always the first sign of a racist. Oh, you don’t like crime. You don’t like litter? You don’t like inflation? You’re against public urination in New York City? You know what you are? You’re a bigot, pal. Stop complaining. You and your free speech,” Carlson railed.
“Yeah, white supremacists just come out and kill them with the First Amendment. That’s what happens when you walk your dog in this country. That’s how bad it is. Racism against Gayle King’s family may be the single biggest problem America faces right now. In fact, it is. The problem is definitely not that we’re running out of energy to power civilization. That’s not a big deal at all and that’s why you probably didn’t read about the fact that the Interior Department just announced it is closing millions of acres to domestic energy production. Sorry, gone. Can’t have the energy there. It exists, but you can’t have it. You know what we can do, though? Buy it from Venezuela. Yes, we can,” Carlson said, addressing a statement from CBS journalist Gayle King on fearing racists.
“You know what we need to talk about? Karine Jean-Pierre just told you. You know what we need to have a conversation about, and by conversation we mean, ‘You shut up, I talk.’ We need to have a conversation about how racist you are, which is very racist,” he went on.
“So, if you can’t keep the lights on or go to the dentist, or if you’re one of the very few people, maybe three in the country who have noticed that honey prices have doubled since December. Why is that happening? Shut up, racist,” Carlson concluded.
