In Which A Fox News Host Argues That Crushing Youth Unemployment Is 'The Best Thing to Happen to Them'

News

Here is Andrea Tantaros, one of the however-many hosts of Fox News' The Five, showing a chart of the historically horrid unemployment rates for the 18-24 year old demographic and proceeding to make one of those savvy counterintuitive arguments that earn her the big bucks: "I've argued once that maybe the economic downturn was the best thing to happen to them because then they weren't... so... everybody gets a trophy; maybe they had to go back home and work at the Quizno's and the Blockbuster and learn the value of a dollar."


So, to recap: The unemployment rate among 18-24 year olds is crushingly high. Andrea Tantaros looks at this and says -- quote -- "maybe the economic downturn was the best thing to happen to them," because now they can learn values.

A few things.

  • If someone has a minimum wage job, they are not unemployed. Depending on their skill sets, they may be underemployed.
  • When young people who have developed skill sets cannot find jobs that match their skill sets and work at minimum wage retail jobs, the economy is in poor condition.
  • High unemployment is an objectively bad thing.
  • When young people are unable to start their careers because of long-lasting terrible economic conditions, a bit of the future is lost.
  • Young people with expensive college degrees or apprenticeships or a viable entrepreneurial vision taking jobs at low-skill retail chains deprive high school students or other brand new entrants to the economy from having those jobs.
  • Suffering is bad.

  • Andrea Tantaros is one of the worst people in history.

Ann Coulter is not impressed with Donald Trump's presumptuous plan to stop ripping babies away from their mothers and sending them to infant prison. For quite a while, Ann has been obsessively lamenting the very idea that American people even have children to "fill their lives with joy," but now (lol, "now") Ann has shifted her rage to immigrant people. Every time you watch her waving her alien-length arms around in a ritualistic frenzy over how shitty liberals are, just remember that we have already seen the emptiness of her soul laid bare. Remember that time she wanted to eat your baby because you got a tax credit?

It's just another Wednesday in an America that snatched kids from their parents and locked them up in old Walmarts. Trump just signed an unneeded executive order ending his heinous child separation policy, but his "the bad guy mobster in a mobster movie" tactics might've had some permanent damage. What remains of the shriveled-up soul of the grand old poor-screwing Republican party has finally had enough.
