Tucker Carlson Call One of His Guests A “Tiny Brain…moron”

1/ Here’s the interview that @TuckerCarlson and Fox News didn’t want you to see. I chose to release it, because I think we should keep talking about the corrupting influence of money in politics. It also shows how angry elites can get if you do that. https://t.co/hs1474MJNM

2/ I stand behind what I said, but there’s one thing I should have done better. When Carlson asked me how he’s being influenced by Big Business and tax-avoiding billionaires, I should have quoted Noam Chomsky.

3/ Years ago, when he was asked a similar question, Chomsky replied: ‘I’m sure you believe everything you’re saying. But what I’m saying is that if you believe something different, you wouldn’t be sitting where you’re sitting.’

"Have you guys ever seen the show???"

Tucker always does that at the beginning. He sits there and agrees with them on a few points, and just eggs them on until they say something ridiculous. Bregman wasn't going to wait for the trap.

Smart guy.

Philanthropy Doesn’t Compensate for Tax Evasion


I did not tweet much about Davos, but this one is interesting:

‘It feels like I’m at a firefighters conference and no one’s allowed to speak about water.’

This historian wasn’t afraid to confront the billionaires at Davos about their greed #SDGspic.twitter.com/972D1Dhzei

Billionaire @MichaelDell thinks a 70% top rate of income tax would never work.@erikbryn and @RCBregman NAIL exactly why he’s wrong.

When the top U.S. tax rate was 70%—or Higher: through the entire administrations of presidents Roosevelt, Truman, Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, Ford, and Carter, the top-tax-bracket rate was at least 70% https://t.co/FR1c9n7vrj

Rutger Bregman caused a stir for criticising tax avoidance at the World Economic Forum in Davos. On "The Economist asks" @RCBregman and @Henry_Curr debate how—and how much—to tax the rich https://t.co/bSb7d1cxN5

Tax evasion can be stopped.
