Tucker Carlson said, "Private property no longer exists in the United States. You thought you owned your home. Not anymore. Rochelle Walensky does. She'll decide who can live there, under what circumstance and for how long." Nearly half of all housing providers are mom-and-pop operations, and landlords are accumulating huge debt. The Treasury Department has distributed $3-billion of the nearly $47-billion allocated for the Emergency Rental Assistance program, but that is a drop in the bucket. [The endgame will be to bankrupt landlords so the government can seize their properties and allow people to live in them free so long as they obey.] -GEG
Carlson told his prime time audience that "private property no longer exists in the United States" as a result of the eviction ban, which he also argued wasn't even legal.
CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky signed the order on Wednesday following significant controversy about extending a federal evictions moratorium put in place due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
In his opening monologue, which was also published as an op-ed on the Fox News website, Carlson took aim directly at Walensky.
