“It’s debate night, but we’re not in Milwaukee” Tucker Carlson emphatically begins his pre-recorded interview with former president Donald Trump that aired on his X platform’s @TuckerCarlson account at the same time as the first 2024 Republican presidential debate.

“We’ll get bigger ratings using this crazy forum than the debate” Trump says after discussing the decline of credibility on cable network news. Trump was right. The number of views continue to climb to over an unbelievable 195 million views within the first 12 hours after release.

Tucker Carlson asks Trump “Why aren’t you at the Fox News debate tonight in Milwaukee?”

“Well, you know, a lot of people have been asking me that and many people said you shouldn’t do them but you know, the polls have come out and I’m leading by 50-60 points and you know, some of them are at 1 and 0 and two. And I’m saying do I sit there for an hour or two hours whatever it’s going to be and gets harassed by people that shouldn’t even be running for president. They shouldn’t be doing that and a network [Fox News] that isn’t particularly friendly to me, frankly.”



A Chicago woman was arrested Tuesday on charges of threatening to shoot Trump and his 17-year-old son, Barron, Fox News reported. Carlson asked the former president, “Are you worried that they’re going to try and kill you? Why wouldn’t they try and kill you?”

“They’re savage animals,” Trump said. “They are people that are sick.”

The Daily Caller also notes that Trump was the target of an alleged assassination attempt on June 18, 2016, when a mentally disturbed British national attempted to take a police officer’s gun to shoot the then-presumptive Republican presidential nominee, CNN reported. Michael Steven Sandford was later sentenced to a year and a day in prison, according to a Department of Justice release.

Elizabeth Warren Acknowledges Unintended Consequences of Obamacare



Elizabeth Warren

Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, a longtime supporter of the Affordable Care Act, commonly known as Obamacare, is now acknowledging the unintended consequences of the healthcare legislation, particularly its impact on industry consolidation and rising healthcare prices.

Warren, who has been a vocal proponent of Obamacare, has recently had what the Wall Street Journal reported as an “epiphany” regarding the consequences of the healthcare law. In a letter addressed to the Health and Human Services Department inspector general, Warren, along with Senator Mike Braun of Indiana, expressed concerns about vertically-integrated healthcare companies potentially increasing prescription drug costs and evading federal regulations.

According to reports from Fox News, the bipartisan letter highlighted issues with the nation’s largest health insurers allegedly bypassing Obamacare’s medical loss ratio (MLR). According to Warren, these insurers, through vertical integration, have manipulated the system, leading to “sky-high prescription drug costs and excessive corporate profits.”

The senators detailed how conglomerates, like UnitedHealth Group, with ownership across various healthcare sectors, could inflate medical payments to pharmacies and, by realizing those payments on the pharmacy side, appear to comply with MLR requirements while retaining more profits.

Moreover, despite the Democrats’ argument that the MLR would benefit patients, it has incentivized insurers to merge with or acquire pharmacy benefit managers (PBMs), retail and specialty pharmacies, and healthcare providers. This, in turn, has made healthcare spending less transparent, as insurers can allegedly shift profits to their affiliates by increasing reimbursements.

Warren, who has consistently voted against Obamacare repeal efforts, notably advocated for a “Medicare for All” proposal during her 2020 presidential campaign. Despite her prior support for the healthcare law, Warren’s recent concerns about its unintended consequences have raised questions about the long-term effects of Obamacare and its impact on the healthcare industry.
