Fox News host Tucker Carlson on Sunday proposed an “older white guy appreciation day” to point out how much Republican lawmakers had done for the country.
Dana Perino, former press secretary of President George W. Bush, told the host of Fox & Friends, that Republicans were overcoming the charge they were “too old, too white, too male.”
“They’re not necessarily going to win all the youth vote,” Perino admitted “But could they win enough to help some of our candidates, Republicans, win? I think that they could.”
“And I lot of them, also, are these young people who gave up their entire summers to help older white guys get re-elected and they deserve a little credit,” she added.
That’s when Carlson had a brainstorm: “We need, I think, an older white guy appreciation day.”
“I think they’ve done a lot for this country,” he said. “And as one of them, I do. I do think that. Penicillin! That’s a contribution!”
“I want to do that,” Carlson insisted. “Draft me, I’ll host it.”

Ex-Bush aide says Trump falls back on racism because he’s losing his mind: ‘Take him to Walter Reed for a full medical’
MSNBC contributor Elise Jordan said President Donald Trump was stuck peddling racism because he's losing his mental faculties.
The former speechwriter and National Security Council staffer in George W. Bush's administration said Trump's attack on four Democratic congresswomen betrayed his inherent racism, and showed that he's mentally diminished.
"I think you're being a little bit too charitable regarding Donald Trump having an actual strategy in the first place," Jordan told "Morning Joe" host Joe Scarborough. "I think that this is who he is -- he's racist."
"You have seen it, you know, his entire career," she continued, "whether it's calling for five young black men who are innocent to be executed. you see it in his comments consistently throughout the course of his campaign wanting to ban an entire religion from entering the country, and just this week the horrible remarks that, you know, an elected official -- elected by her fellow countrymen and women should be grateful to be in the country and should leave otherwise."
MSNBC’s Morning Joe drops the hammer on Trump’s ‘mob’: A ‘new level of racism’
MSNBC's Joe Scarborough said President Donald Trump believes the four Democratic congresswomen he's been attacking aren't capable of being fully American because they're not white.
The "Morning Joe" host said Trump's recent attacks on those first-year lawmakers had followed a familiar pattern, but Scarborough warned the president had taken those racist provocations to a new level by suggesting that people of color aren't capable of loving their country.
"They're not white," Scarborough said. "Clearly, (he) is suggesting (because) they're not white, they're foreign, even though they're not, and also, very interesting in that press conference -- that presser when the president said, 'They're just lucky to be where they are.' That's Donald Trump saying, you know what? Given that they're women and they're from Somalia or from wherever, Detroit, from Cincinnati, regardless, they're just lucky to be where they are."
