Fox News host Tucker Carlson set a liberal environmental activist straight after she went off on an anti-Trump rant where she went as far as comparing him to Hitler.
Carlson’s guest, Erin Schrode, a previous Democratic House candidate, embarked on an uneducated rant from comparing President-Elect Trump to Hitler, to his recent cabinet pick for the EPA, Scott Pruitt.
Schrode discussed the pick saying that he had already sued the EPA to lessen government environment regulations, and therefore, was not a good choice for the position.
Carlson told Schrode, “you don’t actually know anything about what you’re talking about, and you’re throwing out a lot of allegations as if someone were against clean air or for mercury,” He went on to ask her, “is there another side to the case? Do you understand their position or does that not even interest you, learning what they think?”
Schrode snapped back, “It’s not about learning what they think! It’s about the fact that this man, who is the head of the EPA, the nominee, has already acted about the things on which we’re speaking. He has sued to lessen the regulations from an environmental and public health standpoint.”
Carlson went on to ask Schrode what regulations she wanted slashed. The guest was unable to name any.
After questioning her educational background on the topic, Carlson went on to summarize Schrode’s stance comparing anyone willing to question regulations to Hitler. “You seem holy ignorant and not interested in learning it,” he said to Schrode.
Schrode responded that Trump “built a whole campaign” around hate speech, going as far as to calling President-Elect’s Chief Strategist, Steve Bannon, a “white supremacist.” She goes on to claim that this kind of rhetoric will now be in our White House.
“You just compared this guy to Hitler, and then with a straight face, you’re going to accuse him of engaging in hate speech?” Carlson replied. “I can barely hear the irony alarm is so loud in the background.”
Pruitt in conjunction with 27 other attorney generals from various states in the U.S. collaborated with conventional energy companies to sue the Obama administration and the EPA over the stifling regulations that were affecting the production of traditional energy companies.
Trump has said that his appointment of Pruitt will help him in his goal of cutting EPA regulations and refocusing the EPA to protecting clean air and water.
