Dems blame Trump for rushing bad vaccine, Tucker goes full satire

Democrats are trying to blame the coronavirus vaccine’s many pitfalls on former President Donald Trump, but Fox News host Tucker Carlson isn’t having it.

Speaking on Fox News’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight” this Thursday, the eponymous host railed against the new left-wing narrative that Trump had screwed over the American people by fast-tracking the COVID vaccine’s development.

“The vaccine is Donald Trump’s doing. We learned that this week from Democrats in Congress. They announced that shocking news. An investigation by the Coronavirus Subcommittee found, as Politico put it, that the Trump administration pressured the Food and Drug Administration to authorize the first COVID-19 vaccines on an accelerated timeline. Following this?” he sarcastically said.

“An accelerated timeline. They didn’t even fully test the stuff. That’s not science. Donald Trump doesn’t do science. So, they just handed this stuff out to people, citizens, recklessly. In the words of South Carolina Congressman James Clyburn, Donald Trump ‘assaulted’ our nation’s public health institutions with this poison, the so-called vaccine, and in doing so ‘undermined our nation’s coronavirus response.’ That’s what Trump did and here’s the worst part. No one knew Trump was doing it,” Carlson added.

But there’s just one problem, he continued. It wasn’t Trump who’d forced the vaccine down the American people’s throats. Yes, he’d fast-tracked it, mainly to put an end to Democrat lockdowns, but that’s it.

“Wasn’t it Joe Biden who promoted the vaccine, who made it mandatory? Wasn’t Joe Biden in charge when it became obvious the vaccine didn’t work? And didn’t Joe Biden’s media tell us to get the shot months after Donald Trump left office?” Carlson said before turning to sarcasm again.

“In retrospect, it’s pretty obvious they were carrying water for Donald Trump. … Now, if you’re still not convinced, you’re probably a cynical person, probably have concluded the Democrats are panicked about being blamed for the single greatest public health disaster in history and they’re trying to shift the blame to Donald Trump before the full truth about the vaccine comes out.”

The best part about all this, he continued, is that this new narrative from the left has made it so that it’s now safe to criticize the vaccine without fear of being censored, silenced, and ostracized.

“Now that Donald Trump is responsible for the vaccine, we can finally talk about the vaccine. Until now, we haven’t been able to. Until now, it’s been like living in a John Cheever story where the entire country is an emotionally repressed wasp family. It’s 1952 and Darien and Dad has just passed out drunk at the dinner table, but nobody’s allowed to mention it. We all have to pretend it’s not happening,” Carlson explained.

“Now that we can blame Donald Trump for the vaccine, we can finally tell the truth about the vaccine without being fired or attacked or thrown off the Internet. We really should have thought of this earlier because it feels good, the freedom of this. So, let’s take a moment to talk about Donald Trump’s vaccine and why it seems to be, among other things, dramatically raising death rates among young people.”

Carlson then proceeded to highlight some stunning facts about the COVID vaccine’s possible lethality. Did you know, for instance, that according to data from New Zealand, “children who were vaccinated between the ages of 10 and 19 were more likely … to die within a month of vaccination than those who didn’t take the vaccine?”

Similarly, this past summer a Dutch researcher who analyzed hundreds of cities and towns found that he was unable to, in his words, ” observe a mortality reducing effect of vaccination in Dutch municipalities after vaccination booster campaigns.”

“We did find a 4-sigma significant mortality enhancing effect during the two periods of high unexplained excess mortality,” his research reportedly reads.

Similar results have reportedly also been observed in Australia, England, Wales, and even Canada.

“As of this summer, people who took Donald Trump’s vaccine in the Canadian province of Manitoba are roughly 50% more likely than the unvaccinated to be hospitalized or die from COVID,” Carlson said, citing data from journalist Alex Berenson.

The data also shows that 70 percent of all deaths in the province of British Columbia “occurred in people who are boosted, even though boosted individuals make up just half the province’s population.”

“Well, your first reaction might be, ‘Oh, well, vaccinated and boosted people tend to be older, so of course, they’re dying at a greater rate. It has nothing to do with the shot,’ but then you look deeper,” Carlson continued.

“You read, for example, the Lancet article entitled ‘Risk of Infection, Hospitalization and Death up to nine months after a second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine,’ and that piece shows that people over the age of 80 have worse outcomes and by worse, we mean more hospitalizations, more deaths when they’re vaccinated than when they are unvaccinated.”

“So, it turns out when Donald Trump told you, as he did hundreds of times, certainly you must remember this, that this is a pandemic of the unvaccinated, it turned out to be exactly the opposite and we’re seeing this in a lot of different places, in a lot of different data sets,” the Fox News host sarcastically added.

Obviously, it was Democrat President Joe Biden who repeatedly claimed COVID is a “pandemic of the unvaccinated.”

And that’s the point, isn’t it? While Trump fast-tracked the vaccine, it was Democrats who acted like it was the holy grail and who then forced that holy trail on millions upon millions of unsuspecting Americans.

And so no, it’s not Donald Trump’s vaccine. It’s the Democrats’ vaccine, so if they’re looking for someone to blame for the health crisis engendered by the vaccine, they need only look in the mirror …
