Fox News Host Tucker Carlson claims Dr. Fauci is responsible for ‘[helping] create COVID-19’

Fox News host Tucker Carlson has claimed that Dr. Anthony Fauci is responsible for COVID-19 during a segment on his Wednesday night show “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”

The segment saw Carlson talking about the latest changes to the mask guidelines in several areas of the country, especially regarding fully vaccinated people. Carlson then precedes to play a clip of Dr. Fauci but before he does, he says, “So, if you’re in something called a high or substantial COVID transmission region you better prepare to put on your little mask. Now, what are those regions? What does this mean exactly? Well, for the answer to that pressing question, which could affect your life, we go right to the source—here is the man who helped to create COVID in the first place, watch him explain.”

Carlson is likely referencing to the theory that Fauci should be investigated for using National Institute of Health money to fund a Chinese lab that is said to have created the coronavirus and then purposefully released it to the public. The Biden administration is currently conducting an investigation into the possibility that COVID-19 leaked from the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

In a later segment of his show Carlson also questioned the vaccine and its ability to protect fully vaccinated individuals from COVID-19. When asked about these instances Dr. Fauci said that breakthrough cases don’t necessarily mean the vaccine has failed, but rather the success of the vaccine is based on “the prevention of illness.”

Carlson played a clip of Fauci, telling his audience “If you want us to have confidence in your medicine, then tell us the full truth, but they won’t. They have been telling us for six months that this vaccine is perfect, but clearly, in some cases, it doesn’t always work. And that’s not our theory, by the way, take it from the guy who created COVID.”

Whilst on this topic Carlson took aim at the Biden Administration, telling the audience that “if there’s one message around COVID that has been consistent from the Biden administration … is that get the vaccine, don’t ask questions. The administration’s lackeys in the media push the same message from day one with increasing ferocity and humorlessness.”
