People are also wondering if Tucker Carlson has been secretly vaccinated as he makes false, fearmongering statements about COVID vaccinations and encourages his viewers to bully people who take whatever COVID precautions make them feel safe. Several of his Fox News colleagues, on the other hand, have taken a different approach on the air. The whole Fox & Friends trio — Steve Doocy, Ainsley Earhardt, and Brian Kilmeade — all announced that they had been vaccinated and were relieved about it, with Doocy adding that those who refuse to get the vaccine are “in peril.”
And do you know who else? Sean Hannity has joined the pro-COVID vaccine bandwagon, and he did so at a moment when Stephen Miller couldn’t avoid grinning ghoulishly. “I don’t think Dr. Steve Miller or Dr. Sean Hannity have a right to tell people what to do, now,” Hannity announced. “I do believe in science, and I believe in vaccinations… my favorite after I’ve studied everything: I leaned on the J&J shot. My own personal, after reading everything, for a variety of reasons.”
Whoa, right? Dude even chose a “favorite” out of the big three (including Moderna and Pfizer) available in the United States. (Your move, Tucker!) Also, a certain contingent of Fox News audience members might be very confused right about now…
But, lest anyone believe Hannity had a peaceful evening, he also focused on what he refers to as “Biden’s Gas Crisis.” Somehow, Hannity’s attempting to blame Biden for the ransomware attack on the Colonial Pipeline, and this caption led to a choice “bean burritos” joke from Vox’s Aaron Rupar.
