Joe Biden and his regime’s entire strategy to deal with the East Palestine, Ohio toxic train derailment involves simply ignoring the problem and hoping it goes away.
With the legacy media happily running cover, the regime never even imagined they wouldn’t be able to get away with yet another failure.
But a Tucker Carlson guest just exposed one truth about the water in East Palestine.
Since the moment a Norfolk Southern train derailed in East Palestine, Ohio, spilling toxic chemicals into the area, and the Biden regime chose to burn the chemicals, spreading the toxins throughout the atmosphere, many have questioned whether or not the area’s air and water are safe.
Of course, the Biden regime and other ruling class elites have continuously claimed that their air is perfectly safe to breathe, and the water is perfectly safe to drink.
Nevermind the fact that Ohio Governor Mike DeWine has claimed the water is safe to drink, only to admit if he lived in the area, he’d be drinking bottled water.

During an recent episode of Fox News’ Tucker Carlson Tonight, famed whistleblower and environmental activist Erin Brokovich – who was portrayed by Julia Roberts in the Oscar-winning film Erin Brokovich – exposed the fact that the Biden regime isn’t telling the whole truth about the toxic train derailment.
Brokovich, who originally rose to fame for the instrumental role she played in building a case against Pacific Gas & Electric Company for groundwater contamination in 1993, explained to Tucker Carlson that the toxic chemicals spilled in the area was enough to kill over 44,000 animals, which she warned was the canary in the coal mine for potential harm to humans.
“What, 44,000 fish are dead?” Brokovich told Carlson. “We’ve seen them. We’ve seen them out here today aerating the creeks. They’re removing stuff. That, the wellheads are locked. What’s up?”
“Look, you don’t have to go any further, in my opinion, than a hundred year study that we all know the miners did for us,” she continued. “It’s called the canary in the mine shaft. Send the canary down there, it dies – might not be good for humans. You have dead fish – might not be good for humans. You have dead animals – might not be good for humans. You’ve sent a horrible mixed message to this community. Drink the water. Don’t drink the water. Safe. Not safe.”
Perplexed by Brokovich’s revelation that the wellheads were locked, Carlson asked the famed environmentalist why that would be the case.
As she explained, officials have locked the wellheads in order to prevent schoolchildren from drinking from water fountains, which obviously completely discredits the Biden regime’s narrative that everything is perfectly safe.
“So in the schools, so the children can’t drink the fountains, and then on private wells around here, they’ve got locks on them,” Brokovich explained. “So they obviously — aw, come on. If there’s no problem, you don’t need to lock up a drinking fountain. You don’t need to be aerating the system. And you can explain away all day long to me that nothing’s wrong. But I see what’s going on here. You’re not gonna gaslight me.”
Brokovich told the Fox News host that in her time on the ground in East Palestine “it’s very obvious something’s really gone wrong,” yet the Biden regime’s response has left residents feeling as though the ruling class elites don’t care about them – spoiler alert: they don’t.
“We’re pushing a month now and they still don’t have any answers,” Brokovich added. “It’s very obvious something’s really gone wrong out here. And I’ve been out here down on the ground and they’re really frustrated, why they don’t feel that their agencies or their administration cares about what’s happened to the community. So it is very apparent they are are concerned and not being seen or heard.”
It’s apparently clear to everyone outside the Biden regime and those brainwashed by the Left that much more damage has been inflicted on the people of East Palestine, Ohio than the ruling class elites want anyone to believe.
And they’re going to great lengths to keep the narrative going that everything is perfectly fine.
