Tucker Carlson comes from a wealthy family. Even when he claims he’s stating unquestioned truth, Fox’s official position is that his words are just opinions and “no reasonable viewer” would take them as fact. He’s free to indulge his sniveling inner child, constantly fretting that the privileges that come with being a straight WASP male — a millionaire one, too — might eventually shrink just a little if women and POC make gains.
So his declaration that Alexandria Ocasia-Cortez is “the pampered obnoxious ski bunny in the matching snowsuit who tells you to pull up your mask while you’re standing in the lift line at Jackson Hole” is, like pretty much everything the right wing spews these days, projection. Ditto his declaration that he despises her as a “rich, entitled white lady” — I mean sure, he despises her as a woman, but rich entitled and white? It’s like he’s staring into a mirror.
Doesn’t make him any less of a misogynist shit, but I’ll take my laughs where I can get them.
