Wingnut Anti-Vaxxer Tucker Carlson Refuses To Say If He’s Vaccinated
The world’s wealthiest Republican billionaire inheritees are all getting their COVID-19 vaccines secretly, and in private. Trump got the vaccine secretly while he was still president, and reporters didn’t find out until they had been digging into it for months. Fox News chairman and owner Rupert Murdoch got his vaccine in England three weeks before the Queen of England did, yet his network is still blasting anti-vaccine horseshit every night during primetime. And the main horseshit-blaster is none other than Tucker Carlson, who rails against the vaccine five nights a week, even though you know that asshole got the vaccine probably months ago.

CNN’s medical expert Dr. Jonathan Reiner brought the question to a head this weekend. “I have two questions for Tucker Carlson. Number one, have you been vaccinated?,” Reiner said. “And number two, why won’t you tell your audience whether you’ve been vaccinated?”

Shortly after, the hashtag #TuckerVaxxed surfaced on Twitter, and the internet did its thing.
Tucker Carlson didn't just get vaccinated. He probably elbowed a queue of healthcare workers & seniors to the floor to get to the front of the line. #TuckerVaxxed

Business Insider has actually asked several times, and unsurprisingly, gotten no response. “Insider has reached out to Fox News on multiple occasions to see whether Carlson has taken the vaccine — or if he ever plans to — but the network has not responded with a statement,” the publication said.
It was best said on last week’s Last Week Tonight with John Oliver. “The CDC is being cautious, and wants to be sure it’s not spreading bullshit around during a global pandemic like a frozen dinner duke with a TV show. Anyway, I hope that answers at least one of your gape-mouthed bad-faith wonderings, Tucker, you scrunch-faced fear baboon.”
OK, that was a cheap shot. But until that scrunch-faced fear baboon says whether or not he himself has taken the free vaccine shot that he keeps trashing every night, we’re going to keep taking cheap shots at Tucker Carlson.
