Surprise from Carlson - Fox’s Tucker Carlson turns on ‘incapable’ Trump in surprising interview:

Carlson expressed skepticism regarding the prospect of a revolution in the United States, joking that “Testosterone levels are so low and marijuana use is so high” that Americans are as incapable as Trump in effecting major change. Carlson instead was hopeful about the prospect of the "slow self-segregation" of states and races polarized in contemporary America.

Not all of Carlson’s comments about the President were totally negative, however.

Interesting insight from the book that democracies don't work except in middle-class countries. (in relation to the decline of middle class in America, what happened in Venezuela before and demonstrated the consequences of vanishing middle class & democracy)

True indeed: In politics as in life, nothing is really hidden, only ignored.

So the author says that "Happy countries don’t elect Donald Trump president. Desperate ones do.” But the opposite is true as well, in happy countries billionaires don't go for presidency, they usually have enough to do in business and don't hope to resonate with most of less prosperous populous.

And fairly speaking who else would have had enough weight and chance to get the overdue fixes done for the massive issues Tucker mentions? What caliber such figure must have been of, not to be strangled by donors?
