America's most visible racist to lose Dancing with the Stars, Tucker Carlson, reminded the millions of viewers Monday night on his primetime Fox News show that he doesn't have a law degree.
Carlson was adding his voice to the growing speculation of whom Democratic nominee Joe Biden will select as his running mate to face off with him against President Donald Trump in November.
Biden, whose announcement is expected this week, has pledged to choose a woman as his running mate. Amidst expanded national outcry against the brutalization of Black people by police, many Democrats are encouraging Biden to pick one of the many Black women lawmakers fit for the job. Among the possible candidates are Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA), Congresswoman Karen Bass (D-CA), and Congresswoman Val Demings (D-FL).
That didn't sit well with the Fox News host and heir to a frozen chicken fortune.

"For what could very well be the most important job on Earth, Biden has decided to hire exclusively on the basis of qualities that are both immutable and completely irrelevant—race and gender, and that's it. But wait a second, you ask, isn't that insulting? Isn't it wrong? Isn't it probably illegal? Yes, it is all three of those things."
Being a political candidate is not, in itself, an hourly or salaried job.
It is not, in fact, illegal.
