Tucker Carlson shreds Biden over his ultimatum to unvaccinated Americans

Fox News’s Tucker Carlson mocked President Joe Biden on Thursday after he appeared to demand that Americans who have not been vaccinated against COVID-19 continue to wear masks in all venues.

In a Thursday evening segment, Carlson began by noting that Centers for Disease Control and Prevention director Dr. Rochelle Walensky advised earlier in the day that it is no longer necessary for vaccinated people to continue wearing masks indoors or outdoors or socially distance, though the agency chief told a congressional hearing earlier this week she wouldn’t permit her vaccinated 16-year-old son to go to summer camp this year because she felt it is too dangerous.

Previously, Carlson said sarcastically, the same CDC advised wearing triple-layer masks “which we did, and turned blue oxygen loss.”

“They were telling people to wear masks outdoors at sporting events and concerts, on your bicycle and while jogging,” the host continued. “But that’s all gone now. Now we don’t need to wear masks.”

Carlson went on to point out that the Biden White House is also now acknowledging that some Americans have legitimate questions about the various COVID-19 vaccines, whereas before, officials often seemed put off when Americans questioned their efficacy given certain behaviors by ranking officials including Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris, both of whom have been vaccinated but who continue to wear masks in all venues, including around other vaccinated people.

“Oh, so you are allowed to ask questions about the coronavirus vaccine, that doesn’t make you an anti-vaxxer,” Carlson said sardonically. “But you’re not allowed to refuse it. You can ask all the questions you want but in the end, you will take it. And if ya don’t, Joe Biden declared today, you will wear your mask forever.”

The host then played a clip of Biden during a Rose Garden press conference earlier in the day in which he struggled to explain that anyone who hasn’t been vaccinated still must mask up.

“Get vaccinated or wear a mask until you do,” Biden intoned.

“The president of the United States announcing that he somehow has the power to decide what you wear. Hmmm…that’s never happened before,” Carlson responded as he brought in New York Post columnist Miranda Devine.

“If you have been vaccinated … why are you worried about whether or not other people wear masks? How are maskless people or any people regardless of infection status a threat to you if you’ve been fully vaccinated?” Carlson asked.

Devine proffered that those pushing for people to get vaccinated may be doing so in order to get the U.S. population to reach “herd immunity” with COVID-19 as has happened with many other viruses such as rubella and mumps.

That said, Devine went on to suggest that the Biden administration has done a poor job of “selling” Americans on the efficacy of vaccines by their actions, such as continuing to mask up despite being vaccinated.

“The science has not changed for this…miraculous Hallelujah moment today where suddenly, we’re told the bleeding obvious which is, if you’re vaccinated, you don’t need to wear a mask,” she said, adding that Biden “was one of the first people in the country” to become vaccinated.

“He just sends the message with everything he has done that he does not believe that the vaccines work,” she added.

Biden’s mask command also did not play well on social media.
