Fox: Poor people 'eat a bunch of turkey" at Thanksgiving and 'run to the mall.'
I think many Fox News pundits have seen how being an offensive, disgusting lout (Eric Bolling) on TV can get you elevated in Roger Ailes hierarchy and are doing their best to qualify as immoral hucksters. Charles Payne is trying to become the most vile personality on Fox News and with efforts like this, he's rising fast. The discussion was on income disparity in America and Payne has his own very twisted view.
Q: Charles, you can't overlook the disparity, the wealth is more concentrated in the top five percent than ever before and more people are on food stamps so there is a disparity.
Payne: I tell you what, Thanksgiving--when you get a chance after you eat your turkey, go to the mall. You wanna see why the rich get richer. Poor people are going to eat a bunch of turkey, even though they are stuffed to the gills, they'll run to the mail and spend every nickel they have. I;\'m being honest with you.
How sick is this? I won't even bother deconstructing his argument because it's not an argument at all. By the way, if poor people decided to stay home on Black Friday, Charles Payne would say how much the poors hate America and should be punished by abolishing their Social Security, Medicare and unemployment insurance.
