On Monday evening, Fox News' Tucker Carlson said a massive rally for President Donald Trump in Butler, Pennsylvania over the weekend showed that the election is about the working class rejecting the ruling class.
Carlson stated, “Our ruling class is disgusting. A vote for Trump is a vote against them. "
Donald Trump is and always has been a living indictment against the people who rule this country. That was true four years ago when Trump came out of nowhere to win the presidency, and it is just as true now. Our ruling class is disgusting. pic.twitter.com/0JLb6L5AFR

Carlson says working class places like Butler, Pennsylvania have been forgotten by elites
Carlson highlighted the Butler, Pennsylvania rally, saying, "The picture is from a town called Butler, Pennsylvania, 35 miles north of Pittsburgh. The president held a rally there over the weekend."
"Butler is like many places you'll find in this country as you head inland from the coasts," Tucker continued. "It's a former industrial town that has been making Pullman railcars there for many years, but has been losing population for decades."
Carlson described some of the problems faced by the working class living in places like Butler, saying that these Americans are largely forgotten by the elites who run our politics.

The Fox News host noticed the rise in suicides and opioid addiction in cities like Butler and how the mainstream media ignores their pain.
"There have been so many opioid deaths in Butler that residents erected an overdose memorial in the middle of town a few years ago," said Carlson.
"MSNBC didn't handle that," he remarked.

"It looked like a visit from the Pope"
Then Tucker rhetorically wondered why Trump was so popular with his supporters.
"It was interesting how the Butler people think of Donald Trump," noted Carlson. "Here is a picture from the president's rally on Saturday night. Tens of thousands of people came, so many that the crowd blocked the horizon."
"It looked like a visit from the Pope," said Carlson.
"When was the last time a political speech attracted so many people?" Asked Tucker.
58,000 people turned up in Butler PA. for the Trump rally. A 96 mile Trump caravan in Arizona! We see history in the making. If you think Sleepy will win, you really have to open your eyes! Trump will have a massive victory! POLL! POLL! POLL! … –

Carlson: "You love Donald Trump because nobody else loves you"
President Trump has continued to hold massive rallies, many in working-class places like Butler. The 2020 Democratic presidential candidate hasn't been able to remotely achieve the same level of enthusiasm for his campaign.
"Why did all these people come?" asked Carlson. "Why? You must have known Donald Trump was the worst man who ever lived. You've heard that every day for five years."
Carlson then discussed how the ruling class looks down on the working class in support of Trump, and in general.
The Fox News host quickly got to the point of why so many working-class Americans love Donald Trump so much.
"Millions of Americans genuinely love Donald Trump, they love him despite everything they've heard," said Carlson. "They often love him in spite of himself."
"They love Donald Trump because nobody loves them," insisted Carlson.

Tucker Says Whatever Trump's Mistakes He Is "Better Than Those In Charge"
“The land they built, the land of their ancestors that fought for hundreds of years, left them to die in their unfashionable little towns, mocked and despised by the mocking morons with financial statements, but no real skills that seem to master everything at once, ”he added.
At the time, Fox News' top rated host was directly following the political and business elites who control America and look down on the average American.
"Whatever mistakes Donald Trump makes, he's better than those responsible," said Carlson.
He stated, “In other words, Donald Trump is and always has been a living indictment against the people who run this country. That was the case four years ago when Trump came out of nowhere to win the presidency, and it's just as true right now. Maybe even truer than ever and it will stay true whether or not Donald Trump wins re-election. "
