    he worked this one over and over and over, using it as an amplifier for misogyny.

    It's a very good exasmple of evil rhetoric, though.

    Over and over and over he said "a woman" - never an 81 year old woman, or "a grandmother" - which would have instantly, subconsciously awakened sympathy despite themselves in the Dittoheads. No, we all know women are too stupid to be let out on their own, by nature, and this is just another example of it.

    Again, he never, ever ever that I know of said anything about 3rd degree burns, skin grafts etc. So listeners thought this was some weenie of a lass crying like a girl about having a little pain on her knees, because she was too stupid to not try to open coffee in a moving car. (That was the implication, though the car was parked.)

    Nobody ever said anything about the coffee being seriously over the standard heat limit. Or the hundreds of previous lawsuits quietly hushed up with MacDonalds' money.

    And so now, we have Tucker Carlson making jokes about little kids having their guts ripped out and getting away with it.
