WATCH: Tucker Carlson Asks: “How Do Unvaccinated People Hurt Anybody?”

Even during the early days of COVID-19, Doctors understood how the disease spread. And one of the things that really made the virus dangerous, was that asymptomatic people could spread COVID to others without realizing. The same remains true even now that people can get vaccinated against the illness.

And thanks in part to the Delta variant, the virus continues to spread, especially in red states where vaccine rates are lower. Still, Tucker Carlson wants to absolve the anti-vaxxers of any responsibility. The Fox host asked during last night’s show, “how to unvaccinated people hurt anybody?”

The host was responding New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy likening being unvaccinated to drunk driving. Carlson told viewers:

“How is it like drunk driving? How do unvaccinated people hurt anybody? Hey, Phil Murphy, got a second? We’ve got some time. Why don’t you explain that to us.

It was just a year ago, or so, that if a politician got on stage and said that would be laughed off the stage. And a politician that endorsed firing thousands of health care workers during a pandemic, calling them criminals, dehumanizing them, would be reviled. Now, it gets applause.”
