In an interview on "Tucker Carlson Tonight," Unanue accused the White House of weaponizing inflation to "control" the public while using irresponsible unemployment payouts to discourage able Americans from rejoining the workforce.
"At the core of inflation, and it’s out of control – especially in food – is evil, a desire to control us," Unanue told host Tucker Carlson. "When I was a child, my parents said ‘never take candy from a stranger.’ And they’re giving out candy, incentivizing people not to work. They’re taking away our purpose, our spirit, our reason to get up every day. They’re doing it without their own candy, they’re taking our candy, and using it to incentivize us not to work. That’s very inflationary."
