An important Democrat candidate has a horrifying record.
His policies have already led to economic collapse.
Tucker Carlson absolutely annihilated a top Democrat with these seven words.
Fox News host Tucker Carlson blasted U.S. Senate candidate John Fetterman’s (D-PA) dismal record.
Carlson began his segment by talking about Braddock, Pennsylvania, a small town that Fetterman was mayor of for many years.
Braddock was once a thriving industrial town which economically collapsed when the steel mill was closed down.
“But one man saw an opportunity in Braddock, Pennsylvania, not an opportunity for the town, but an opportunity for himself,” Carlson said.
The Fox News host pointed out that Fetterman was not from the area, had never held a real job despite being 35 years old, and had paid hundreds of thousands of dollars for a meaningless college degree, bankrolled by his rich father.
“For a long stretch, lasting well into his 40s, deep into middle age, Fetterman’s main source of income came from his parents,” Carlson continued. “They gave him and his family $54,000 in 2015 alone. In other words, John Fetterman was a classic trustafarian, a flaky middle-aged man looking for a purpose in life. And in Braddock, Pennsylvania, he found one.
“In 2005, a year after arriving in Braddock, Fetterman announced he was running for mayor, and amazingly, boldly, given that he was a professional student living off his rich family, John Fetterman decided to run as a blue-collar populist,” Carlson continued. “But the media asked no questions. They loved it. In John Fetterman, the media saw themselves; he was just like them. So Fetterman narrowly won the race, and then the campaign to boost John Fetterman’s career began in earnest. The Guardian newspaper described John Fetterman as the ‘coolest mayor’ in the country. The New York Times told its readers, who didn’t know any better, that John Fetterman had ‘turned the busted town of Braddock, PA, into a national symbol of hope, hard work, and authentic blue jeans.’ How inspiring! Fetterman thought it was.”
Carlson highlighted how Fetterman would senselessly brag about how his efforts were saving Braddock.
“We created the first art gallery in the four-town region with artist studios; we did public art installations. And I don’t know if you consider [it] an art exactly, but I consider growing organic vegetables in the shadow of a steel mill an art, and that has attracted homesteading.” Fetterman said at the Aspen Ideas Festival.
“It’s so perfect — homesteading, organic vegetables, art installations, and also again inevitably, a heaping dose of climate theology all imported from Harvard,” Carlson continued. “So Fetterman imposed, on a town with no jobs, carbon caps on Braddock, Pennsylvania, and he claimed these carbon caps would somehow — he never explained how — bring more manufacturing jobs back. He called this initiative, ‘carbon caps equals hard hats.’ So expensive, unreliable energy will mean more manufacturing jobs. And yet somehow, no one laughed at him. So John Fetterman kept going. In a 2009 advertisement for himself, he promised that ‘with a smart economically viable carbon cap policy in place, communities like Braddock can begin to build its manufacturing and middle class back up. This whole notion that we can continue to operate as we have been and ignore climate change is ludicrous.’ They loved it at the Aspen Institute.”
But for all the praise from the mainstream media and Democrats Fetterman only made Braddock worse.
“How did Braddock, Pennsylvania, fare under the leadership of John Fetterman?” Carlson questioned. “That’s really the only question that matters. And again, we want to be as fair and objective as we can be. So we’re going to tell you that under his tenure as mayor of Braddock, Pennsylvania, the seas did not rise. That is true. Braddock is still on dry land. Of course, it’s very far from the ocean, but it’s still dry. So his climate policy worked. He can be proud of that. Unfortunately, everything else fell apart in Braddock. People kept fleeing. Braddock’s population is currently at its lowest level ever recorded.”
