He better hope not considering the fact he’s firmly in the one percent.
Appearing as a guest on Wednesday’s Piers Morgan Tonight on CNN ,as he discussed the Occupy Wall Street protests, former NBC anchor Tom Brokaw warned that a “class war” could develop unless “income inequality” is addressed. Brokaw:
They’ve landed on something that I think resonates with a lot of people, and that’s the one percent versus 99 percent. Most people, the overwhelming majority obviously, are in the 99 percent. And there is that great concern about income inequality in this country.
In the course of the last three weeks, I’ve been all over America, 19 cities altogether. And I’ve had a lot of high-income people come to me and say we really do have to do something about income inequality because that could trigger a class war in this country. And the consequences are not very pretty to contemplate.
