CNN Lemon Rages At “Rich” Trump Supporters Who Don’t Want To Pay More Taxes Under Biden

How dare people have enough “disposable income to spend on fun”

In an exchange with fellow CNN host Fredo Chris Cuomo Tuesday night, Don Lemon raged at supporters of President Trump, accusing them of pretending to have financial anxieties, and not wanting to pay more taxes so they can spend more money on having “fun”.

Lemon was reacting to a segment from Cuomo’s broadcast highlighting Trump supporters participating in a dune buggy rally in Oregon.

“Boat parades, car caravans, bike parades. What attendees have in common is disposable income to spend on fun,” spewed reporter Ellie Reed, adding “While Trump’s working-class supporters have gotten a lot of attention, in 2016 a third of his voters made more than $100,000 a year.”

Lemon pounced on the footage, proclaiming that “It kind of dismantles that whole thing about economic anxiety was the reason that Trump got elected. Those people have no economic anxiety. They’re rich.”

“I want to be able to buy a $20,000 dune buggy. But I don’t want to help people who may be in need,” Lemon snarked, taking on the persona of what he believes Trump supporters are like.

“I want to be able to buy whatever which is fine, but just own up to it. And stop pretending the reason is economic anxiety,” Lemon lectured, adding “But just be honest about what your intentions and what you think and stop pretending that it is something else.”

Watch:

Calling it “selfishness” that people like to spend more money having fun, the host declared “I don’t mind paying more taxes for people who are not doing well, to help other people out. This is America. I will be okay. How much do I need? I can cut back. I can pay more.”

Not all heroes wear capes.

Only in the mind of a champagne socialist like Lemon does paying more taxes to the vastly bloated and wasteful federal government ‘help other people who are not doing well’.

The man lives in a huge swank pad in Sag Harbor. Has he been paying extra taxes or has he also been spending his vast CNN income on the good life?

Nevertheless, Lemon’s sermon continued as he preached “So, as Americans, as people, especially if you believe in the Christian values that you espouse, you’re supposed to do unto others and help others.”

“So, I do that as much as I can. I don’t like it, but I don’t mind it in a way because I am blessed and fortunate enough to be in this position to make this amount of money where I am — I have the privilege, I have the privilege, to be able to do that,” Lemon exclaimed.

Lemon finished his lecture by painting all Trump supporters as super rich frat boys racing around in yachts, a notion that is blatantly ridiculous.

“So, maybe you buy one less dune buggy, maybe you buy one less fancy car. Maybe you buy one less boat, maybe you buy one less yacht. Maybe you buy one less apartment, one less mansion. But how much money do you really need? That’s all I got to say.” Lemon concluded.

Tucker Carlson On Gas Panic: “Somebody Did This To Us On Purpose”

It’s a “grimmer version of the 1970s”

Tucker Carlson warned Tuesday that the disruption in the Colonial Pipeline and the resulting shortage panic is being carried out by design.

Carlson noted that the situation represents a “grimmer version of the 1970s” with many states declaring emergency shortages, and resulting price gouging as a result of, we are told, “some mysterious gang of cybercriminals [who] hacked the software at a major American fuel supplier.”

Referring to the Biden administration, Carlson declared “The same lunatics who don’t believe in Human Biology immediately made a serious mess of our economy, it took them less than six months to do it.”

Comparing the scenes to Venezuela, Carlson noted that the New York Times says this is just another “conspiracy theory”.

Watch:

“On some level, let’s be honest about it, the White House approves of this disaster,” Carlson proclaimed, adding that “the lunatics plan to close every gas station in the entire United States, shuttered forever, to make way for some new as yet not quite defined means of transportation that will magically replace the gasoline engines that we have used for more than a hundred years.”

Carlson continued “bad federal policies are distorting the price of everything in this country from two by fours to diesel fuel to corndogs.”

“None of this is an accident just as it wasn’t an accident when the power went out in Texas over the winter,” the host continued, adding “It wasn’t a cold snap that did it. It was a federal policy that encouraged the state to rely on windmills which don’t actually work.”

“It’s not a natural cycle. Somebody did this to us on purpose,” Carlson warned.

50 Cent Flees New York For Texas After Complaining About COVID Restrictions, High Taxes

Joins wave of Americans, both rich and middle class, leaving coastal cities.

Rapper Curtis ’50 Cent’ Jackson has joined the wave of Americans fleeing New York, announcing that he had moved to Texas after complaining about draconian COVID-19 restrictions and high taxes.

“I love New York, but I live in Houston now,” 50 Cent told his social media followers. “I’ll explain later.”

However, the hip hop star had already made it clear why he was planning to leave the Big Apple in March by responding to Texas Governor Greg Abbott’s vow to lift mask mandates and other lockdown restrictions with the remark, “I’m headed to Texas fuck this.”

The actor and producer is also notorious for flouting COVID rules, having hosted a huge party in an aircraft hangar in St. Petersburg, Florida back in February, putting himself at risk of a massive fine.

In October last year, Jackson also said he was voting for Trump in an attempt to avoid Joe Biden’s punishing tax policies, which would have taken 62% of his earnings.

“I don’t care [if] Trump doesn’t like black people,” 50 Cent said. “62% – are you out of ya f**king mind?”

50 Cent follows Elon Musk and Joe Rogan in fleeing from a liberal coastal city to low tax Texas, but many ordinary Americans are also making the move.

A survey conducted in September 2020 found that two in five New Yorkers wanted to leave the city, with the reasons cited being crime and public safety as well as the anemic post-COVID economic recovery.

Moving trucks became a common sight on the streets, with 2020 showing a 44% increase in home sales in the suburbs compared to the same time period in 2019 as people flee for bigger homes in safer areas.

As we highlighted yesterday, judging by the supposedly ‘busy’ rush hour traffic in Manhattan, it may take years for New York to recover from draconian lockdown measures.

Rotten Apple: ‘New York as Dead as it Was a Year Ago’

Is it ever coming back?

Published

Unlike other areas of the country like Texas and Florida, New York appears to be trapped in a permanent state of lockdown malaise, with one observer noting how empty streets suggest the city is “seemingly as dead as it was a year ago.”

Reason host Nick Gillespie tweeted a video of morning rush hour traffic on The Bowery, a street located in a normally busy neighborhood in Manhattan.

Suffice to say, it’s not that busy.

“New York is seemingly as dead as it was a year ago,” commented Gillespie.

Respondents blamed harsh coronavirus lockdown restrictions for the city’s decline.

“Everyone moved to Florida,” remarked one.

“It’s absolutely tragic what these morons have done to my beautiful city. It’s going to take years to recover from this,” commented another.

A survey conducted in September 2020 found that two in five New Yorkers wanted to leave the city, with the reasons cited being crime and public safety as well as the anemic post-COVID economic recovery.

Removal trucks became a common sight on the streets, with 2020 showing a 44% increase in home sales in the suburbs compared to the same time period in 2019 as people flee for bigger homes in safer areas.

Former hedge fund manager and entrepreneur James Altucher previously warned that the city was on its knees and that there were no signs of New York’s political leadership offering a way out of the malaise.

“We have something like 30 to 50 per cent of the restaurants in New York City are probably already out of business and they’re not coming back,” he pointed out.

Regular Black Lives Matter riots that include demonstrators telling white people to “get the fuck out of New York” also can’t be helping.

The trend of people fleeing big cities, largely as a result of the pandemic but also for other reasons, is mirrored in London, where 700,000 people left the English capital in 2020.
