Carlson said to Ryan he “may agree” with passing bills to fight drug abuse, “but you’ve got a chance to send a symbolic message and you’re sending it. We know where your priorities are.”
Ryan replied, “Yeah we know where your priorities are, Tucker. Do something about it.” He then asked Carlson to “use your bully pulpit” but he was moved out of the TV frame and his microphone was cut.
On Twitter afterward, Ryan wrote, “The best thing we can do to honor victims of the opioid addiction epidemic is legislate meaningful solutions. I’ve been working on this for most of my career. @realDonaldTrump needs to get serious and demand the money needed to get our communities back on their feet.”
