Badass Rutger Bregman, Dutch Historian Calls Out Fox TV 'Millionaire' Tucker Carlson



Go to the 3 min. mark for the spat, the rest is good too.

Rutger, the Red- Haired Dutchman and historian who spoke out at Davos last year against income inequality - 'Just Pay Your Taxes!,' talks wealth and taxes to Fox TV show host Tucker Carlson.

Rutger tells Carlson 'he's a millionaire funded by billionaires- the Cato Institute, the Kochs, the Murdochs.' And Tucker is none too happy. (Feb. 20, 2019).

4. Taking private planes to Davos to talk about the environment?

The only one I personally know who went to Davos to talk about the environment was Howard Dean. He flew commercial, and he flew coach. I saw him a day later in Geneva, and he came by train, second class.

5. That was great, but of course Carlson never aired it. We need more Bregmans. nt

at Davos brought up the subject incl. David Attenborough in his speech. It's a lot of planes.
