I think the point he's making is that there's a certain irony in massive corporations not paying their people enough to live (where the difference is made up from taxpayers) but making every charitable effort a political PR stunt as though they're an alternative to Trump's agenda. Something along those lines anyway.

Yeah but you should be thinking this is a good thing though. When Bill O'Reilly got dislodged, Tucker basically took his time slot so he likely has the largest audience on the whole network right now. So it's a good message to get out there considering how big the viewing audience likely is.

Its weird when you bring up morality considering your position on the matter. Its like arguing that music is subjective and then telling people they have bad taste. Silly elph.

Rorschach would have been straight up alt-right, bro. He was a socially conservative nationalist who didn't realize he was basically a Nazi.
