Tucker grew up rich, his stepmom was the heiress to the Swanson TV Dinner empire. He used to be a libertarian but slowly embraced populism as he got older. I don’t think he’s just being contrarian. I think he actually believes what he says, unlike most TV pundits. Globalism is bad for America and establishment libertarians actively cheer it on while it destroys their neighbors and puts entire towns out of work.
