Erin Brockovich is an environmental activist who criticized the “frustrating” response of the Biden administration in Ohio to the East Palestine catastrophe.
Brockovich appeared on “Tucker Carlson Tonight”, in which she accused the government of hiding important details from Americans after the East Palestine train disaster.
Tucker Carlson questioned Brockovich about whether government officials had concealed information concerning the environmental consequences of the train derailment.
“Yeah, there is. And I mean, it’s like, Oh my gosh, come on,” Brockovich replied, according to Mediaite. “Oh, we’re out here. What, 44,000 fish are dead? We’ve seen them. We’ve seen them out here today aerating the creeks. They’re removing stuff. That, the wellheads are locked. What’s up?”
Brockovich compared dead animals in East Palestine to miners bringing canaries into coal mines to detect dangerous and toxic conditions.
“Look, you don’t have to go any further, in my opinion, than a hundred-year study that we all know the miners did for us,” she explained. “It’s called the canary in the mine shaft. Send the canary down there, it dies: Might not be good for humans.”
“You have dead fish: might not be good for humans. You have dead animals: might not be good for humans,” Brockovich continued. “You’ve sent a horrible mixed message to this community. Drink the water. Don’t drink the water. Safe. Not safe.”
Brockovich stated mixed messaging was “horribly confusing” and “extremely frustrating” for East Palestine residents.
She said, “And something actually went wrong”. She said, “And there’s still more information to discover, this story will continue. ”
Brockovich told Carlson that the drinking fountains at schools are shut off and that some wells are locked.
Brockovich explained that schools have locks to prevent children from drinking from the fountains. Private wells aren’t available around here.
Brockovich said, “You’re not going to gaslight us. ”
President Joe Biden has never visited East Palestine.
Biden was asked Friday by a reporter if he would like to travel to East Palestine.
Biden replied, “This isn’t the case. It was — I did an entire video — you know — on …”
A reporter suggested to Biden that his search term was “Zoom”.
Biden said, “Zoom! Zoom! ”
Biden went off-topic and stated that “All I hear when thinking about Zoom is that song of my generation, “Who’s Zoomin?”
Biden stated that “The answer is me — I had a lengthy discussion with my team about their plans.” “We arrived at the scene two hours after the train was damaged.
“Are you planning on traveling to East Palestine?”
BIDEN: “At this moment not. I was, I did a whole video, I mean, uh, you know, the uh, what the hell? On…”
BIDEN: “Zoom. All I can hear every time I think of Zoom is that song of my generation, ‘Who’s Zoomin’ Who?'” pic.twitter.com/fBWAVar7Gm
