Pawn Stars’ Rick Harrison Blames Democratic Policies for His Son’s Fentanyl Overdose Claiming They ‘Let’ the Crisis Happen.

Rick Harrison, the star of the hit TV show Pawn Stars, is criticizing Joe Biden’s massive failures at the border in the wake of his son’s death from a fentanyl overdose.

Harrison’s son, Adam, who wasn’t involved in his father’s TV program, passed away at the age of 39 due to a drug overdose on January 19th.

Currently, in an interview with Fox News, the 59-year-old TV star praised Donald Trump and criticized the current politicians in charge, accusing them of being “complicit” in the millions of fentanyl-related deaths occurring in this country.

“He’s an incredible individual. He wants to do something about this,” Harrison said of Trump and his desire to end the flow of fentanyl coming across the border by drug-running criminals.

“There’s so many different places you have to start at, all at once, but one of the major ones is get the damn stuff out of the country and stop making it so cheap to get high,” Harrison continued.

“My understanding is it’s like $5 to buy a fentanyl pill. Anybody can afford it. I mean, make it difficult,” he said.

“Let’s start arresting the people selling it, arresting the people bringing it over the border, close down the border, make it really expensive. Let’s make a fentanyl death rare,” he added.

“It’s insane because they’re letting it happen,” he said regarding today’s politicians in charge of policy.

“They’re literally letting it happen. They’re not doing anything about it. So they’re complicit in all these deaths.”

“Nothing is getting done about it,” Harrison said of the illegal drugs sweeping the country.

“It’s the equivalent of a 737 loaded with passengers crashing every single day. That’s how many people die from it. And, you know, the politicians don’t want to talk about it. The news doesn’t want to talk about it,” the TV star said.

“A big part of is politics. I mean, we know where it’s all coming from. It’s all coming right across the border, and they won’t do anything about it. I mean, they’re doing nothing,” he insisted.

Harrison proceeded to criticize Joe Biden’s administration for attempting to sue Texas in an effort to prevent the Lone Star State from protecting its own borders.

“Literally, we have a government that’s suing the state saying, ‘No, you can’t block tons of people coming into this country,’” the TV star said.

“We don’t know what they’re carrying on them. And we don’t know what kind of people they are. It’s insanity. I mean, we just need common sense.”

“I think any drug dealer that sells fentanyl, I mean, they should get at least manslaughter charges,” Harrison exclaimed.

“Just selling the stuff should be attempted murder. I mean, it’s that bad and nothing’s being done about it,” he added.

Harrison then pointed out that so many cities in the U.S. are “turning into third-world countries because of this drug,” and slammed liberal states such as Oregon for treating abuse of the drug so lightly, adding, “Like in Oregon, you can have fentanyl on you. It’s like a $20 ticket.”

Harrison recommended that the first step should be to “shut down the border.” He also proposed putting an end to the recent trend among the left of implementing “no bail” policies and emphasized the need to increase penalties for the sale or possession of fentanyl.
