Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) speaks out against criticism of a speech he delivered last week denouncing the "cosmopolitan" ruling class elite in an interview on 'Tucker Carlson Tonight.' Hawley and host Tucker Carlson note that former President Barack Obama used the term cosmopolitan to describe elites in a speech he gave in 2018.
SEN. JOSH HAWLEY (R-MISSOURI): When it comes to liberals, there is only one thing they love more than being elitist and that's accusing everyone else of being bigots in order to shutdown speech, devalue the views of the American people. They say you're a bigot, you're a racist because they don't want to admit to what they have done, what their policies have done -- shipping jobs overseas, hurting working families, keeping wages flat for decades. That's their legacy and it is time that they owned it...
The liberals are increasingly the party of elites. They are the party of the ruling class and that's the point and that's what they don't want to admit: they are the ruling class and they have been for decades.
They control the commanding heights in this country: the media, the big multinational corporations, our universities. They have effectively run the country, the liberals have, for decades now and their consensus has given us what we have today. They are the ones who are responsible for jobs offshoring, they are the ones who are responsible for wages flight, the plight and struggle of ordinary Americans.
