This week, several documents Donald Trump’s lawyers had been attempting to shield from investigators were released. One of those documents, first obtained by Politico, revealed that an Executive Order to seize voting machines in an attempt to overturn the election results was written up.
This is, of course, an important news story and one that any reputable news organization should cover. Tucker Carlson, however, did not mention the news at all. The Fox host instead dedicated a lengthy segment to complaining about M&M’s.
Carlson ranted, “Bet you didn’t think M&Ms were pushing intolerance, but they were, they’ve been changed. You’re seeing those changes on the screen. The green M&M, you will notice, is no longer wearing sexy boots. Now she’s wearing sensible sneakers. Why the change? Well, according to M&Ms, “We all win when we see more women in leading roles.”
The Fox host continued:
“The other big change is that the brown M&M has “transitioned from high stilettos to lower block heels,” also less sexy. That’s progress. M&Ms will not be satisfied until every last cartoon character is deeply unappealing and totally androgynous. Until the moment you wouldn’t want to have a drink with any one of them. That’s the goal. When you are totally turned off, we’ve achieved equity. They’ve won.”
