A Fox News guest asserted that wealthy Americans are more deserving of tax cuts because “rich people never got a job from a poor person.”
On Tuesday’s edition of Fox & Friends, correspondent Todd Piro traveled to a diner in Greenville, SC to talk to people about President Donald Trump’s proposed tax cuts.
Piro spoke to a customer named Dan, a Trump voter who is “excited about tax reform.”
“You told me that you are actually disappointed in tax reform in the sense that it’s not going to be for everybody,” Piro explained. “You think it should even be for the rich. Why do you say that?”
“Rich people never got a job from a poor person,” Dan replied. “So if everybody gets a tax cut, that’s the best for everybody.”
“Armageddon is what we’ve been experiencing over the course of the last eight years if you asked me,” he added.
A Washington Post analysis found that the tax reform plan is “probably the most regressive tax cut in the past 50 years.”
“The Trump plan and the 2003 Bush cuts were harder on the middle class than anything else in our sample, with both giving outsize benefit to those earning more than $100,000 a year in the first year after implementation,” the paper noted.

‘If you kiss my butt, I will do something for you’: MSNBC commentator slams Trump’s ‘pay-to-play’ pardons
On MSNBC Wednesday, analyst Jason Johnson broke down the self-serving logic of President Donald Trump's pardons.
"These people wrote him from prison, these people had friends asking him questions. Many of these people were connected to the president financially," said Johnson. "And it's the general message that he has, which is that this is a pay-to-play administration. If you kiss my butt, if you give me money, if you make me feel good about myself, if you praise me, if you come up for ridiculous names for yourself 15 minutes after you come out of prison, the I will do something for you."
Trump threatens federal government takeover of San Francisco: ‘It’s worse than a slum’
President Donald Trump said on Wednesday that the federal government may "step in" to take control of San Francisco and Los Angeles.
The president made the remarks at a White House event in Bakersfield, California. During the event, Trump responded to someone who said he wanted to "get rid" of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
"Get rid of Pelosi! That's okay with me!" Trump exclaimed. "Lot of people agree. Look what's happened to San Francisco. So sad what's happened, when you see a slum, where it's a slum. It's worse than a slum. There's no slum like that."
"It's something that we're going to do something about," he added. "Because if they don't fix it up, clean it up, take care of the homeless, do what they have to do but clean up their city, the federal government is going to have to step in. And we're going to do it in Los Angeles and San Francisco."
Martha McSally is in big trouble after impeachment votes: report
Sen. Martha McSally (R-AZ) lost when she ran in 2018, but was given a participation prize by the Republican governor who had to appoint someone to cover Sen. John McCain's (R-AZ) seat until it came up for reelection in 2020. Recent polling shows that McSally is in serious trouble.
Highground Public Affairs Consultants published their latest poll showing McSally has fallen significantly after the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump.
Going into the impeachment, McSally was polling at 42 percent at PPP polls, RealClearPolitics reported. However, the new data today shows McSally struggling to break 40. Instead, she's hovering around 39 percent, while her opponent, Mark Kelly is at 46 percent.
