‘Tucker Carlson Tonight’ examines the nation’s homeless crisis, and the decline of American cities.

The drug abuse, the homeless and the problems in cities like San Francisco will not be solved by state intervention, because you said “moral” and “spiritual” issues, conservative radio host Larry Elder.

He told Elder that there are problems with the human faeces in public places and “pins and needles everywhere.” He said Pelosi and other wealthy residents of San Francisco to “chip-in” to the affected people, “advice [and] a warm meal.”

“The are only generous with our money, I think I said,” Hannity.
