TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): They have a lot of energy. Too bad none of it is focused on the country's real problems, and there are a lot of them, and we don't want to go through the same litany again, but we will hit on just a couple because they're worth mentioning.
Our national debt is exploding, and that includes credit card debt, by the way, personal debt at its highest ever measured. We have a war in Afghanistan that we can't seem to win or end.
Our towns outside the big cities are being decimated and desiccated by opioids and suicide. If you haven't been there, drive through and take a look yourself.
We have, basically, an open border with Mexico. Tech companies trying to control our freedom of speech. In many ways our country is on the wrong track and people know it.
Everybody knows it, Democrats and Republicans, but instead of trying to fix any of that, Democrats want to spend the next year explaining -- and they plan to -- explaining why it was perfectly fair for Joe Biden's ne'er do well son to get 600 grand a year from Ukrainian oligarchs -- that's totally fine -- but it's somehow criminal for Donald Trump to ask about that. That's the message.
Good luck with that. Hard to imagine many voters will be impressed by it.
