“Fox And Friends Sunday” host Tucker Carlson thinks older white guys deserve a little credit.
Dana Perino joined the show Sunday morning to discuss the midterm elections and the Republican party’s demographic challenges.
“It’s been beaten into our heads: You’re too old, you’re too white, you’re too male. And that is true demographically across the board,” she said.
But she added that young Republicans “gave up their entire summers to help older white guys get re-elected and they deserve a little credit.”
At that point Carlson jumped in with his idea for a new holiday.
“We need an older white guy appreciation day. I think they’ve done a lot for this country,” he said.
“Penicillin! That’s a contribution,” he declared.
