TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): But it's the addiction numbers that are the worst. This year, for the first time ever, the number of overdose deaths in the United States passed 100,000. That's up 30 percent from just last year, it's up more than 100 percent since 2015. At this point, more Americans are dying from drug ODs than are dying from car crashes and gun deaths combined.

And as with suicide, an overdose is just an end point of a very long saga. An overdose is the final chapter in the world's saddest story, many years of suffering and torment. And our lunatic COVID policies have caused so much more of this. What people like Tony Fauci will never acknowledge is that addiction is far worse than the coronavirus. Addiction doesn't just kill you, although of course it does, addiction degrades you and destroys the people around you, the very people you love the most. Addiction is the worst thing. Addiction is a fate worse than death, it steals your soul. Any sane person would rather die of COVID tonight than spend the next decade addicted to drugs and alcohol. Ask anyone who has been. But Pelosi and Biden and Fauci and McConnell don't care.
