While most of our country’s leaders have banned together for the good of our country, there are those who are still out for themselves.
What the American people are learning about the conduct of some elected officials during this crisis has them seeing red.
And Tucker Carlson said one word about a coronavirus scandal that will make you sick.
Fox News host Tucker Carlson has always been an outspoken supporter of President Trump and the conservatives of this country.
He stands against the liberal propaganda and radical leftist leaders of this country.
And now, in the wake of the deadly novel coronavirus strain COVID-19, Tucker Carlson has called out one US senator for one selfish and dangerous act.
Thursday, Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson called on Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC) to resign after reports show he sold off hundreds of thousands of dollars in stock after signaling a warning to a group called the Tar Heel Club about the threat of the coronavirus.
The allegation is that Burr gave contradicting information publicly, downplaying the threat before his sell-off and may have had inside information given his position as the chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee.
News that Burr abused his position to protect his wealth has shocked the nation.
Burr is the Chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, and as such, has sworn an oath to the American people.
But that didn’t matter to Burr. Instead, he would stab his country in the back to protect himself.
“You may have seen news reports this afternoon that chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee sold more than a million dollars in stock in mid-February after learning about how devastating the Chinese coronavirus could be. He had inside information about what could happen to our country, which is now happening,” Carlson said. “But he didn’t warn the public. He didn’t give a primetime address. He didn’t go on television to sound the alarm. He didn’t even disavow an op-ed he’d written just 10 days before claiming America was ‘better prepared than ever for coronavirus.’”
Still, Carlson gave him the opportunity to come forward and explain his actions further.
“He didn’t do any of those things,” he continued. “Instead, what did he do? He dumped his shares in hotel stocks so he wouldn’t lose money, and then he stayed silent. Maybe there is an honest explanation for what he did. If there is, he should share it with the rest of us immediately. Otherwise, he must resign from the Senate and face prosecution for insider trading. There is no greater moral crime than betraying your country in a time crisis, and that appears to be what happened.”
Senator Burr is just the latest in Washington to have revealed their true colors.
The novel coronavirus is still sweeping the country, leaving devastation in its wake.
It is up to the leaders of this country to stand strong and govern their people, leading them through this time of fear and tragedy.
