Adam Carolla: 'We've Lost the Eye of the Tiger'

Adam Carolla is literally a millionaire. Literally.

The former “Loveline” co-host repeatedly told his audience just that in jest while helping troubled teens during his 10-year stint on the call-in show.

Now, the popular podcaster is aghast at how his fellow Americans treat the rich.

Carolla shared his thoughts on why the rich have targets on their backs during a recent chat with Bill O’Reilly on Fox News’ popular “The O’Reilly Factor” program.

Yes, it’s envy that has turned into resentment that has turned into anger and essentially shame. It’s pretty simple psycho dynamic which is, “I wish I had that guy’s expensive car, good looking wife, big house, whatever it is.”

Then the next feeling is shame. Because I… I can’t do it. I’m not smart enough. I don’t work hard enough.

And then turns to anger. I’m going to throw a rock at that guy’s car or his wife’s fake boobies or whatever it is I can hit….

We’ve lost the eye of the tiger. We’re not hungry anymore. I mean our grandparents or great-grandparents, whoever came over here in a boat came over here hungry, ready to roll their sleeves up and get to work.
