MINOT, N.D. — On a recent episode of Stephen Colbert’s talk show, Jon Lovett, a former speechwriter for President Barack Obama who is today one of the hosts of a wildly popular left-wing podcast, said Republicans support “a bunch of terrible stuff that makes life worse and shorter for a lot of people.”
He said the Republican slogan for the midterms ought to be, “We’ll make life worse and shorter.”
Meanwhile, across the widening chasm that is America’s political and cultural divide, Fox News host Tucker Carlson, during a recent broadcast of his nightly show, accused Democrats of having “given up on the country and given up on the people who live here.”
Democrats believe there’s “no future worth having,” he ranted.
“They don’t care about you at all,” he said.
