Environmental activist Erin Brockovich torched the "frustrating" response by the Biden administration to the disaster in East Palestine, Ohio.
Brockovich appeared on "Tucker Carlson Tonight" on Friday, where she accused the government of hiding ominous details from the American people following the disastrous train derailment in East Palestine.
Tucker Carlson asked Brockovich if government officials are hiding information about the environmental impacts of the train derailment.
"Yeah, there is. And I mean, it’s like, Oh my gosh, come on," Brockovich replied, according to Mediaite. "Oh, we’re out here. What, 44,000 fish are dead? 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?"
Brockovich compared dead animals in East Palestine to miners bringing canaries into coal mines to detect dangerous and toxic conditions.
"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 explained. "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," Brockovich continued. "You’ve sent a horrible mixed message to this community. Drink the water. Don’t drink the water. Safe. Not safe."
Brockovich said the mixed messaging has been "horribly confusing and extremely frustrating" to the residents of East Palestine.
"And something actually has gone wrong here," she added. "And there’s information that has yet to come forward, and the story will continue to unfold."
Brockovich told Carlson that schools have shut off drinking fountains and some private wells have locks on them.
"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," Brockovich revealed. "So they obviously — aw, come on. Wha– 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, I see what’s going on here."
Brockovich declared, "You’re not gonna gaslight me."

President Joe Biden has not visited East Palestine.
On Friday, Biden was asked by a reporter if he would visit East Palestine.
Biden replied, "This time, I’m not. I was — I did a whole video — I mean — you know, the — what the hell — on..."
A reporter chimed in and suggested the word Biden was looking for was "Zoom."
Biden said, "Zoom! Zoom."
Biden then went off on a tangent, "All I can hear every time I think of Zoom is that song of my generation, 'Who’s Zoomin' Who?'"
"The answer is that I — I had a long meeting with my team as to what they’re doing," Biden said. "You know, we were there two hours after the train went down. Two hours. I’ve spoken with every single major figure in both the Uni- — in both Pennsylvania and in O- — and in Ohio."
