In his weekend broadcast of the “Adam & Drew Show Podcast,” TV personality and noted anti-liberal Adam Carolla railed against Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s Friday comments on “Real Time With Bill Maher” regarding what should and shouldn’t be the role of government in the lives of Americans.
“We’ve got to get out there and we’ve got to be willing to fight back, to take this country back,” Warren told Maher.
“Yeah, she means take it back and give more shit to people,” Carolla reacted.
Carolla has long been a supporter of shrinking the size of government and living within an individual’s means. Specifically, he opines that people shouldn’t have children until they are completely ready.
“She’s the one that’s always speaking to Democratic conventions and explaining to people how it just can’t work out, and then she gets up there and goes, ‘there was a time — I grew up when our government did X, Y, and Z and I grew up in a place that you could and now you can’t,'” Carolla said.
“It’s like, what do you mean you can’t? Just go do — go clean the shit out of your back yard. What does that have to do with the federal government? I didn’t even know what she’s talking about.
“The government’s leaving your family behind? You’re supposed to take care of your family. The thing is get the taxes under control and let the people take care of their kids,” Carolla said.
“You’re supposed to take care of yourself. Government is not supposed to take care of you. The government is supposed to create a level playing field, I agree,” said Dr. Drew Pinsky, the show’s co-host. “Listen, what’s interesting to me is I agree with 95 percent of what she said.”
“There’s no such thing as a level playing field. It’s, I would say, mathematically impossible to create a level playing field and I’ll tell you why,” Carolla responded.
“I went to the same school and had the same opportunity and education as the kids who didn’t. I had friends who went to Stanford, but they had parents and their parents cared and they forced them to do homework and we ran like wild homeless chickens with their heads cut off. And that’s what the difference was,” Carolla said.
“The problem with the government is they can create North Hollywood High and they can staff North Hollywood High, but they can’t follow me home and force my parents to get their shit together so I can do homework.
“No one’s listening to me. So they have to call me a bigot or whatever. They didn’t used to. But if you can’t afford kids, you’re not ready for kids. We can focus on that. Let’s not have kids,” Carolla said. “Look, we live in a society that just worries about third-hand smoke and click it or ticket. We’re not focused on destitute people having no business having children not having children. That’s something that doesn’t come up on either platform.”
“Elizabeth Warren wants to figure out how to level the playing field, I’ll level it overnight. Don’t have kids you can’t afford. That will straighten things out really fucking fast. That is not part of the things that she discusses, nor does she discuss the government’s role in that part,” Carolla added.
