Adam Carolla: Rich People Are ‘Better Than Poor People’
Adam Carolla tells the Daily Caller he wants to be “the Al Sharpton of rich, white guys.”
Carolla began by telling The Daily Caller’s Jamie Weinstein that one of his goals is to become “the Al Sharpton of rich white guys,” a mantle currently held by Donald Trump. When Weinstein pointed out that Carolla appears to advocate against “demonizing” rich people in his book, Carolla said he was willing to take that idea a step further.
“They’re better than poor people. They just are,” Carolla said of the rich. “I’ve hung around with plenty of poor people, now I’ve hung out with rich people. They work harder, generally. More focused. The folks I grew up with, the poor people I grew up with, fairly lethargic, did a lot of complaining, smoked a little too much, drank a little too much, blamed everyone but themselves a little too much.”
