Danish government hits back at Fox host Trish Regan after she portrays their country

as a socialist hellhole

BRAD REED 14 AUG 2018 AT 14:00 ET

Fox Business Network host Trish Regan last week did an entire segment trashing Denmark for allegedly being a socialist hellhole — and now Danish government officials are hitting back.

In particular, Regan tried to portray Denmark as an economically stagnant country whose top tax rate of 56 percent stifled incentives to work.


“There’s something rotten in Denmark!” Regan declared on her Fox Business program last Friday, quoting a famous line from Shakespeare’s “Hamlet.” “Those ‘freebies,’ well, they’re anything but free… everyone in Denmark is working for the government!”

As Bloomberg reports, Danish officials are now condemning Regan’s commentary as wholly inaccurate, while at the same time inviting her to come see their homeland for herself.

Hey Regan..............do you know why the Danish have a better system than us....................they don't condemn there society has being egalitarian, not like your boss and his company as a whole you have no clue, your company is a microcosm of discrimination and labeling.......................and your corporation always attacks this country and its citizens hoping that we were like the Danish, and by the way Regan, the Danes are a lot happier than this country.................they must be doing something right...............

4. I would move there in a heartbeat if the chance arose.

I sure as hell am not going to base my opinions of a place based on what some bleach-blonde telebimbo from the Fox Network says about it, anyway.
