Mike Rowe Blasts ‘Hypocrisy’ Of Billionaires At WEF Blaming ‘Everyday Guy’ For ‘All Of The Trouble In The World’ | Eastern North Carolina Now

    "Dirty Jobs" host Mike Rowe blasted the billionaires attending the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, accusing them of "hypocrisy" for blaming the "everyday guy" for "all of the trouble in the world."

    During an appearance on Fox News's "The Ingraham Angle" on Wednesday, Rowe was asked what he thought about the "callous" and "dismissive attitude" of the elites at the forum over jobs "they don't approve of," such as those in the fossil fuel industry.

    "It's hard to maintain a consistent level of outrage," Rowe replied. "I've been at this for 15 years. The foundation I run is focused on real jobs that require an actual skill that truly exists."

    Rowe said when he looks at the coverage of Davos, he doesn't understand "why anybody is taking any of it seriously."

    "These are billionaires, and very, very, very wealthy people who fly privately to this resort to basically blame the everyday guy for all of the trouble in the world," Rowe explained.

    "I just don't know how a reasonable person can see through the hypocrisy to even for a moment seriously consider the validity of anything you just played," he added, referencing a clip that showed elites espousing the need to "close the emissions gap," phase out coal, and end the "addiction to fossil fuels."


    Fox News host Laura Ingraham said we couldn't ignore their comments because it's creating liberal policies that hurt people.

    Rowe agreed and said sometimes things are going to "have to go splat" before the majority stands up, but to "affirmatively make fossil fuels the enemy right now" is crazy.

    "And to marginalize and vilify the very thing we are all so completely and totally reliant on, that's a recipe for crazy making," Rowe added, noting that our relationship with energy and food is completely disconnected.

    "We're at war with the very things that we need," he added.
