Leftists swarmed after a San Diego radio station reported that Fox News ratings king Tucker Carlson said that he had not received a booster shot or been jabbed at all during an event held at a local church, a remark that has fueled yet another attack on the intrepid journalist who calls it as he sees it.
According to the Voice of San Diego report that was amplified by the far-left website The Daily Beast which serves as a feeder system for anti-conservative agitprop, Carlson told the audience at Awaken Church, a house of worship that drew the ire of health officials for defying an order to shut down indoor services during the height of the COVID pandemic, “I skipped the first three, I’m not getting that one either,” drawing applause from the crowd.
Audio of Carlson’s April 2 speech at Awaken was picked up by the Daily Beast’s “Source Material” newsletter which posted the segment of his mocking remarks on the crusade to vaccinate all of America which has been temporarily slowed after the Supreme Court’s January ruling against President Joe Biden’s employer vaccine mandate and Democrat fears of voter backlash in the crucial midterm elections.
Mocking what he called the “COVID thing,” Tucker said, “What, this is crazy, yeah get my fourth shot ok, yeah I don’t think so,” as the audience applauded. “I skipped the first three, I’m not getting that one either,”
He emphasized that he is not anti-vaccine, having grown up “next to the Salk Institute in La Jolla, I’m not against vaccines ok? I’ve had like a million of them,”
Carlson added of the vaccine pushers, “I look at these people, like, this just does not make sense at all, and I have no idea what’s up here, but whatever you’re telling me it’s just not true.”
For months, media personalities including CNN’s Jim Acosta have pestered Carlson about revealing his vaccination status.
“Tucker Carlson, tell the American people if you have been double vaccinated and boosted,” Acosta said. “Just come clean, tell everybody if you’ve been boosted, we know the truth, we know you have been but just tell us, tell everybody the truth, that’s all we ask”

Salivating over the idea that such an admission could be the proverbial straw that breaks the camel’s back with his employer or at least sows seeds of suspicion with his viewers, leftists pounced, led by crazed former MSNBC anchor Keith Olbermann, a fervent critic of Carlson.
The "Source Material" Newsletter boys have quite the scoop tonight:

Other unhinged leftist Twitter users raged against Carlson with one who has images of a needle, a mask, and a Ukraine flag in her profile floating a conspiracy theory that he faked his vaccination card to deceive Fox News.
Tucker Carlson Brags to Megachurch That He Is Totally Unvaccinated for Covid. It’s got to be a lie, because @FoxNews REQUIRES employees who work in the building to be vaccinated. Or did he FAKE his vaccine card for work? https://t.co/DS5XDKj2sq

Tucker Carlson very well could be Hitler, Putin like than Trump. Considering his media exposer, he may be as, if not more dangerous.

Interesting because FOX has a vaccine mandate so I must assume Carlson either showed a bogus proof of vaccine to his network or he was dishonest when speaking to the members of the church. Either way he is a liar. https://t.co/XK0r5Bps4M

Tucker Carlson says he is totally unvaccinated.@TuckerCarlson is full of shit. Fox News mandated that ALL employees be vaccinated right after vaccines were available.

Speculation that Carlson was in open violation of Fox News policies on employee vaccines was clarified by Daily Beast media reporter Justin Baragona.
“This isn’t true,” he wrote. “Only Fox staffers working in NYC studio had to conform to the city’s vax mandate.”
“Elsewhere, Fox’s policy is provide your vax status or get tested daily if working in office,” Baragona added, “Tucker, meanwhile, largely broadcasts from a private studio.”

There are early signs that COVID hysteria is ready to be ramped up again, including Democrat-controlled Philadelphia re-imposing its indoor mask mandate with others likely to soon follow, and the moral scolds who act as self-appointed jab police are clearly chomping at the bit to be unleashed again.
