Tucker Carlson continued his assholery by mocking Pete Buttigieg for taking time to get to know his two newborn children

Just when you think Tucker Carlson couldn’t be a bigger asshole, last night Carlson thought it would be funny to mock Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg for taking a couple of weeks of paternity leave so he could care for and get to know his new babies.

Man Confronts Tucker Carlson: ‘You Are The Worst Human Being Known To Man’

A Montana man told Tucker Carlson he is "the worst human being in the world.'

When I first heard about this little Tucker Carlson moment in a fly-fishing store in Montana, it seemed characterized as this big, angry, loud confrontation.

The man, Dan Bailey, posted a video of himself confronting the Fox News host at the store in Montana saying to him “you are the worst human being known to mankind. I want you to know that.” Continue reading “Man Confronts Tucker Carlson: ‘You Are The Worst Human Being Known To Man’”

VAERS is an open-access system. It’s designed so that anyone — parents, patients and health care professionals — can freely report any health effects that occur after a vaccination whether or not those effects are believed to be caused by the vaccine. People have died after watching Carlson’s TV show. It doesn’t mean they actually died from his show (although I guess that’s possible).

Tucker Carlson Wants To Know How Effective COVID Vaccines Are

Fox News talking head Tucker Carlson seemed a bit outraged in a recent screed when he demanded to know ‘how effective’ the approved COVID-19 vaccines are.

So, all of this should prompt some pretty tough questions for our public health experts in this country. And one of those questions is, “How effective is this coronavirus vaccine?” How necessary is it to take the vaccine?

Don’t dismiss those questions from anti-vaxxers, don’t kick people off social media for asking them, answer the questions — especially now. The administration would like you to take this vaccine, Joe Biden told you last week if you don’t, you can’t celebrate the Fourth of July.

But it turns out there are things we don’t know about the effects of this vaccine and all vaccines by the way — it’s always a trade-off. So, should this scare you? We don’t know, but the rest of us deserve an answer.

Well, Tucker, have you tried checking out the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website? Have you checked out the FDA website?

Both will tell you a study for the Pfizer vaccine involved 36,523 participants, 18,198 received the vaccine and 18,325 received saline placebo. The vaccine was 95 percent effective in preventing COVID-19 disease among these clinical trial participants. In the vaccine group, 8 developed cases of COVID-19 while there were 162 COVID-19 cases in the placebo group.

Also from the FDA site – a similar study of the Moderna vaccine found it to be 94.1% effective in preventing serious cases of the coronavirus.

This isn’t really hard, you know…

And by the way, Joe Biden did not say if you don’t get the vaccine “you can’t celebrate the Fourth of July.”

Biden said there was a “good chance” that friends and families would be able to safely gather together in small groups to celebrate July 4th if Americans would vaccinated and continue to follow health guidelines, such as mask-wearing.

p.s. Tucker, your boss, Rupert Murdoch, got the shot almost the instant it was available. So, there’s that…

One more thing: Fox News and conservatives are tying themselves in knots trying to give all the credit for the vaccines to Donald Trump. So, which is it? Is he to blame for a faulty vaccine or does he get credit for vaccines that are helping stave off the coronavirus?

Tucker Carlson Slammed For Mocking Women In US Military

Tucker Carlson is worried women are feminizing the US military

Sen. Tammy Duckworth (D-IL), a military veteran herself who lost both legs while serving in Iraq, has no civility left for Fox News personality Tucker Carlson after he criticized our female military service members.

Here’s what Tucker, who never served a day in military uniform, had to say that set her off:

Pregnant women are going to fight our wars. It’s a mockery of the U.S. Military.

While China’s military becomes more masculine as it’s assembled the world’s largest navy, our military needs to become — as Joe Biden says — more feminine, whatever feminine means anymore since men and women no longer exist…

Again, this is a mockery of the U.S. military and its core mission which is winning wars.

And here’s what Sen. Duckworth, along with several veterans and military leaders had to say.

Her tweet included a gif from Carlson’s time on Dancing With the Stars, with Senator Duckworth adding “While he was practicing his two-step, America’s female warriors were hunting down Al Qaeda and proving the strength of America’s women.”

Tucker Carlson: The Deep State Ate My Fake News Homework

During his Wednesday night show, Fox News pundit Tucker Carlson told his audience that his producers had acquired “incriminating documents” about Hunter Biden, the son of former Vice President Joe Biden, but the documents had “vanished” while being shipped from New York to Los Angeles.

From The Independent:

In a bizarre segment on Wednesday night’s show, Carlson alleged that his team mailed the documents from New York to Los Angeles after receiving them from a “source” on Monday, but that the bundle never arrived.

Without providing any further details or evidence, Carlson said the “damning” documents had “vanished” on route, heavily implying foul play.

Carlson said a producer had shipped the documents to him from New York to Los Angeles via a “brand-name company”. When they didn’t arrive, the shipping company told Fox that their package had been opened and the documents had “disappeared”.  

Viewers questioned why Fox shipped the only copy of such “damning” material without making any kind of back-up, and the segment has since been a subject of ridicule on social media.

Within the last hour, a spokesman for UPS told The Daily Beast that they had located the mysterious package Carlson suggested had been deliberately misplaced or intercepted because it contained “damning” materials on the Biden family.

“After an extensive search, we have found the contents of the package and are arranging for its return,” the spokesman said.

Meltdown: Tucker Carlson Can’t Pronounce Kamala Harris’s Name

Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson (screen capture)

Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson wet his diaper Tuesday night after a guest, political consultant Richard Goodstein, attempted to teach Carlson how to pronounce Sen. Kamala Harris’s first name.

Goodstein began his appearance saying to Carlson, “Tucker, can I just say one quick thing because this is something that will serve you and your fellow hosts on FOX. Her name is pronounced ‘Comma’ — like the punctuation mark — ‘la.’ ‘Comma-la,’ okay?”

Carlson, whose face is often the picture of confusion, shot back, “So what?”

Explaining the obvious, Goodstein shared, “I think out of respect for somebody who is going to be on the national ticket, pronouncing her name right is kind of a bare minimum.”

Considering Carlson is probably going to be saying Harris’s name quite a bit over the next several months (if not years), surely he can muster enough respect to pronounce the name of the first Black woman, and first Asian American woman to run for vice president on a major party ticket?

Cue the predictable meltdown.

“So I’m disrespecting her by pronouncing her name unintentionally?,” bellowed Carlson. “So it begins. So I’m not. You’re not about to criticize (pronouncing it wrong again) ‘Ka-MAL-a’ Harris or ‘CAMEL-a’ Harris or whatever.”

“Okay look, I unintentionally mispronounced her name, but I love the idea that she is immune from criticism,” continued Carlson’s indignant rant. “On this show, nobody in power is immune from criticism. Our political leaders must be held to account. That’s our job.”

Please note – being corrected on how to pronounce the name of a vice-presidential candidate is NOT the same as saying you can’t criticize them.
