Fox News host Tucker Carlson opened his Wednesday evening program highlighting new findings indicating the virus that causes COVID-19 was in the U.S. “possibly months” before anyone knew, claiming that Americans have been lied to repeatedly about the pandemic.

He began by noting that the country has heard a great deal in recent weeks about “voter fraud” and “election fraud,” the “more profound news” regarding “a global fraud that began long before Election Day and has ruined millions of lives, killed hundreds of thousands, and deeply affected the outcome of our presidential election” — the pandemic.

Carlson then declared: “Simply put, we’ve been lied to.”

The host went on to summarize the findings of a recent analysis by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention of blood collected during a Red Cross drive in December 2019.

Researchers examined 39 blood samples taken from Americans living in California, Oregon, and Washington that were collected between Dec. 13 and Dec. 16, before anyone in the U.S. had heard of the virus (Carlson noted that China did not officially acknowledge it until Dec. 31).

“And yet, every one of those samples came back positive for the coronavirus antibodies. Keep in mind that antibodies don’t develop for at least a week after exposure to the virus,” Carlson said.

“That means the human coronavirus was being transmitted throughout the American population far earlier, possibly months earlier, than we were told. We don’t know yet how it happened, but we know for certain that it did,” Carlson added.

Since then, the CDC has found “dozens” more samples that tested positive for the virus, beginning towards the end of December 2019, in several other states including Iowa, Massachusetts, and Michigan, he continued, adding that analysts have found the virus spread to other countries much earlier.

“So clearly, what we have been told for almost a year about the origins of the coronavirus is not true. Why are we just learning this now, a month after a presidential election? We’ve had reliable antibody tests since the summer, yet no one thought to test Red Cross blood samples until now?” Carlson said, asking why we didn’t have answers to those questions and others about the virus’ origins and spread sooner.

“Because nobody seemed to care. Our elected officials were too busy enjoying their newfound power. They were shutting down small businesses and arresting people for kayaking without masks,” said the host.

After recounting how, in January, the Department of Homeland Security warned that airports could be super-spreader locations for the pandemic but Congress failed to act. He also reminded viewers that the Trump administration gave a classified briefing about the virus for the entire U.S. Senate on Jan. 24, “but only 14 senators showed up for it. Why?”

“Well, Jan. 24 was the final day of House Democrats’ opening statements in the Senate impeachment trial of President Trump,” he continued. “So the people in charge of protecting the country were not worried about coronavirus, but were standing in front of their mirrors rehearsing the moment when they could finally confront Alan Dershowitz about the dreaded Zelensky phone call.

“Now they’re claiming the pandemic caught them completely by surprise. How do they get away with that? They get away with it because our public health establishment gives them cover and has all year,” said Carlson, adding that the nation’s lead immunologist, Dr. Anthony Fauci, said on a Fox Business Network program two days earlier that Americans could rely on China for truthful information.

Carlson then documented how China had been less than transparent about the virus and had even blamed it on other countries, including the United States, with help from the World Health Organization.

He also pointed out that not long ago he interviewed Chinese virologist, Dr. Li-Meng Yan, “who fled her country with this message for us: This virus came from a government lab in China. She said she knew that in her own country she would have been punished, possibly killed, for saying so. So she came here, to the land of the free. What did she find? She found her words censored by American tech companies working in tandem with the tyrants she fled.”

He then noted that Western officials, to include Biden’s chief of staff pick, Ron Klain, have praised China for “transparency” and response while chiding Americans for pushing back against life-damaging restrictions.

“Got that? The Chinese are driven by “a sense of collective responsibility.” Contrast that with us fat, lazy Trump-voting Americans. We demand to go to church on Sundays or go out to dinner with our families once in a while and then deservedly, we get sick and die. Not Xi Jinping and the obedient communist nation he leads. They found a better way,” he said.

“That’s the message from the media, our health establishment, and our elected officials, and it has been for almost a year. But it’s not the whole story. We know that now. We’re still not even close to knowing what really happened. We should find out.”
