Adam Carolla On Envy, Anger And Resentment Of The Wealthy

Comedian and political commentator Adam Carolla appeared on FOX News' "O'Reilly Factor" Friday night to opine on class warfare and the envy of achievement in the U.S.

"It's horrible. It's envy that has turned into resentment that's turned into anger and essentially shame. It's a pretty simple psycho dynamic, which is, 'I wish I had that guy's expensive car, good looking wife, big house,' whatever it is. Then the next feeling is shame. 'Because I can't do it. I'm not smart enough. I don't work hard enough.' And then turns to anger. 'I'm going to throw a rock at that guy's car or his wife's fake boobies or whatever it is I can hit.' And it used to be the other way around. You would see a guy in a nice car and you would go, 'Hey, son, if you work real hard you can get a nice car like Mr. Jenkins,' now it's all out the window. And it's the fault of the wealthy as well because they're not even acting wealthy. Mark Cuban walks around in cargo shorts and flip-flops and a t-shirt," Carolla said.
