‘Will Cockroaches Be on the Menu?’: Tucker Carlson Takes Bite Out of Bug Burger

DCNFFox News host Tucker Carlson tasted a bug burger while discussing efforts to promote insects as food in a preview for an episode of his “Originals” series.

“Leaving politics aside, we’re assuming for this segment this will be inevitable, we’re going to be eating bugs,” Carlson, a co-founder of the Daily Caller News Foundation said to chef Joseph Yoon, who founded the Brooklyn Bugs restaurant in 2017. “Might as well make the best of it, and you have done that.”

The European Union approved the use of cricket power in food in January, allowing it to be used in a number of food items, including pasta, bread and meat substitutes. Over the years, media outletscompanies and leaders have pushed the idea of shifting people away from eating meat by substituting insects, including former United Nations Secretary General Kofi Annan.


“So before we get into what you prepared today, I think everyone has the same question in mind: Will cockroaches be on the menu?” Carlson asked Yoon, who was featured in a video from the World Economic Forum.

“All the insects that are – that we use are farm to harvested specifically for human consumption and cockroaches may be on that list but I, personally, don’t really think that we’re ready for cockroaches just yet,” Yoon said.

After that exchange, Carlson tried several of the items, including chocolate-covered crickets and cricket caramel popcorn.

“I would eat chocolate covered crickets all day,” Carlson said, before picking up a cricket burger and trying it.

“That’s not bad at all,” Carlson said, taking a bite.

Yoon disavowed efforts to force people to discard eating meat, which has been targeted in efforts to deal with climate change by politicians and academics.

“I think whether people like it or dislike it, it’s important just to give people the option,” Yoon said.

Bugs skeleton can not be digested. The bugs activates parasites in your body that are normally dormant. Now your body is consumed by parasites. A good way to lower the population!

Just because we can make a bug burger that tastes like real meat, doesn’t mean that we SHOULD do it. Where are the long term health studies on human beings who daily consume bugs??? These people are sickos…

Does anyone believe Shufflin Joe, Barry Soetoro, Crooked Hillary, Bubba Clinton, Chuck You Schumer, Nervous Nancy, AOC, Bill Gates, Klaus Schwab or George Soros are eating cockroach croquettes to save the world?

It’s pretty easy to eat bugs lathered in chocolate, caramel, or some type of sauce, or even mixed in a veggie burger to hide the taste.

But, show me a video of Tucker eating crickets not covered with something, or mixed in with something else to hide the disgusting taste of eating a plain cricket, or a mealworm, or any other insect proffered up as a substitute for meat.

Even in Asia where insects are eaten regularly, they cook them in some type of sauce to cover the nasty taste of the insects.
