Fox News host Tucker Carlson absolutely destroyed a socialist professor on Tuesday night.
In the interview, the professor suggested that the 1 percent should have to pay 80 percent of all income tax.
Carlson responded by telling her that she should pay 70 percent of her salary as tax.
“But you’re asking other people to give their money to the government. Why aren’t you giving 70% of your income to the government? You could!”
“Well I’m not in the top 1% but I have no issue-”
“You don’t need to be.”
“Well that’s the argument I’m making right now. That’s it’s not about working class Americans or people like me who are upper income Americans, um it’s really about the wealthiest top 1% now–I pay about 30%.”
“Why not pay 70%? I don’t understand. Like what’s holding you back?”
At this point, she started stuttering and was unable to think of a reasonable response.
“You know what’s holding me back? If if if I knew how to do that um I would have no issue doing that, but the tax code is totally convoluted.”
“No no no let me simplify it for you. Just write a check. Pay your taxes. Just figure it out. You pay 30%? Then just figure out the other 40% and write a check to the U.S. Treasury.”

You can always rely on Carlson to call out whiny liberals for their unrealistic ideas. Socialism may sound perfect on paper, but in reality, socialism is ripe with problems. It also happens to be the same system that North Korea uses.
