‘Pawn Stars’ host Rick Harrison slams socialism: ‘There’s no point in working hard’

“Pawn Stars” host Rick Harrison isn’t buying the socialist policies some Democrats are trying to sell ahead of the 2020 election.

“I tell college kids… next time you’re in college and talking to these other students that love socialism, just tell them, ‘let’s do the tenets of socialism’,” Harrison said on “Outnumbered.”

“Next time we have a big test we’re just going to average out all the scores and everyone gets the same, same score on the test. See how hard everyone tries next week.”

“It will slow down the work to where everyone gets an ‘F’ in the class,” Harrison added. “There’s no point in working hard.”
