Tucker Carlson Declares That COVID-19 ‘Just Isn’t Nearly as Deadly as We Thought It Was’
Fox News host Tucker Carlson, who received mainstream praise for helping push President Donald Trump to take the coronavirus pandemic seriously, confidently declared on Monday night that the virus that’s killed over 56,000 Americans in only a few weeks “just isn’t nearly as deadly as we thought it was.”
Carlson continued to dismiss nationwide physical distancing guidelines as having played any role in helping to flatten the curve of the virus spread, which he again insisted was not that dangerous.
“Six weeks later we are happy to say that curve has been flattened, but it’s likely not because of the lockdowns,” he proclaimed. “The virus just isn’t nearly as deadly as we thought it was, all of us, including on this show. Everybody thought it was, but it turned out not to be.”
