Brian Kilmeade, the second dumbest man on television to his Fox and Friends co-host Steve Doocy, still doesn’t understand how insurance works. After the failure of the Obamacare repeal effort the other day, he lamented the fact that healthy people are paying for the insurance of sick people.
STEVE DOOCY (CO-HOST): So you heard [Senate Minority Leader] Chuck Schumer [(D-NY)] say we’re not celebrating, yet you see some of the images out of Capitol Hill last night in the middle of the night. People were taking selfies, there was a lot of happy faces.
AINSLEY EARHARDT (CO-HOST): There’s Chuck Schumer who said he wasn’t going to celebrate.
DOOCY: Yeah. Then we’ve got [Sen.] Elizabeth Warren [(D-MA)] outside, taking selfies with supporters. Ultimately —BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): I laugh, too, that young people are out there celebrating. Congratulations, you now will pay a fine or you’ll have to have insurance. Congratulations, the healthy people are paying for the sick people.
I swear, there isn’t a full functioning brain if you put all three of them together, which explains why Trump is such a huge fan of the show. Yes Brian, healthy people are paying for the sick people. Just like good drivers are paying for bad ones, or just unlucky ones, when they buy car insurance — which they are also legally forced to do, by the way. So why aren’t you complaining about that? Why aren’t you making sarcastic remarks about good drivers paying for bad drivers?
Why aren’t you upset that people whose homes don’t get robbed are paying for those whose homes do get robbed with homeowners or renters insurance? Or that people whose homes aren’t flooded are paying for those who are when they buy flood insurance? Because take notes for a moment, you dolt: That’s how insurance works. It’s the entire concept behind insurance markets. I wonder if he had to take a negative IQ test to get his spot on Fox and Friends?
