In his race to the very bottom, media hack Tucker Carlson goes lower, sending a college student undercover to see what he can buy with food stamps:

For creative college students planning a party, the possibilities are endless. Here are some things you can buy with food stamps without breaking the law or the bank:

  • Limes for Coronas or other Mexican beers
  • Soda water or tonic water for mixed drinks
  • Coke for Jack and Cokes
  • Drink mixers, as long they have an FDA nutrition label on them and don’t have alcohol in them
  • Appetizers from the frozen food section
  • Chips, salsa, cheese, and crackers
  • Red Bull for Jager-bombs
  • Jell-O to make Jell-O shots
  • Any other snack product
  • Gatorade for nursing the next day’s hangover
  • Egg Nog (for Egg Nog and Brandy mixed drinks during the holidays)

What Bob Cesca and John Cole said. Can't imagine saying it any better.
