This is not to denigrate other brilliant conservatives such as Victor Davis Hanson — who Tucker recently acknowledged “without shame” is smarter than he is — but rather to acknowledge the accessibility and reach that his perch as the top-rated cable news program host gives him.
Tucker began his monologue by grounding it an observation made a couple of decades ago by the late Michael Crichton, an absolutely brilliant original thinker who became a bestselling author, movie producer, and director: that apocalyptic climate doom had become the religion of the urban atheist class, which now rules politics and which has made it into our state religion.
This is must-see TV. If you didn’t watch it last night, give yourself a treat and watch it today.
