Chelsea Clinton calls on Facebook to remove Carlson commentary on vaccine efficacy 

Fox News host Tucker Carlson is no stranger to controversy, including efforts to boycott his show’s advertisers and remove him from the airwaves.

Former President Bill Clinton’s daughter, Chelsea, has joined in on the public backlash by calling on Facebook to ban the host from its social media platform. In a recent tweet, Chelsea Clinton wrote: “In December [Facebook] banned claims about [COVID-19] vaccines ‘that have been debunked by public health experts.'”

“Rare and severe”

By the same token, Chelsea Clinton pointed to recent remarks by Carlson on the topic of vaccine efficacy and arguing that it should also be banned from Facebook, claiming that it is “especially troubling given Republican men are currently most likely to say they’re not interested in being vaccinated.”

The Fox News personality’s controversial comments reportedly came in response to the Biden administration’s decision to pause the distribution of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine after a handful of cases described by officials as a “rare and severe type of blood clot in individuals after receiving the vaccine.”

During a subsequent segment of Tucker Carlson Tonight, the host questioned why the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Biden health adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci continue to encourage facemask use and social distancing even after inoculation.

“If the vaccine is effective, there is no reason for people who have received the vaccine to wear masks or avoid physical contact,” Carlson argued, according to TheBlaze.

He went on to speculate that the vaccinations are not as effective as the government would have Americans believe, saying: “Maybe it doesn’t work and they’re simply not telling you that. Well, you hate to think that, especially if you’ve gotten two shots. But what’s the other potential explanation? We can’t think of one.”

“What we’re trying to accomplish”

Chelsea Clinton was not the only public figure to respond harshly to Carlson’s comments.

Fauci himself accused the host of pushing a conspiracy theory, concluding that the remarks “were counter to what we’re trying to accomplish to protect the safety and the health of the American public.”

The back-and-forth continued during a segment of Carlson’s show on Wednesday night.

“The only reason we are asking the question is because the people in charge are acting like [the vaccine] doesn’t work,” Carlson asserted, according to The Hill. “You see the president of the United States wearing a mask outside, you see the vice president doing the same thing. You see the guy in charge of coronavirus response…telling us that, again, after you’ve had the vaccine, you must remain under the restrictions.”

Not only did the clip remain available on Facebook after Chelsea Clinton’s call to take it down, but it also went on to become a trending topic across the platform.

  1. So, some Huckster who comes from a criminal family of Hucksters, wants to smear someone else. Perhaps She should work on clearing up Her own stench First. The only ones who can’t seem to smell Her are the ones bathing in the same Liberal Cesspool!

    1. I agree with her. Her father was involved in an affair in the White House and he was impeached. This is no criticism of her but many things are done in the world in the guise of helping the populace. Bill Gates has been involved in many agricultural experiments in Africa. He also made a statement that the vaccines will help reduce the worlds population.

    2. The Clinton’s and their or her daughter need to shut up. Her Mom got a lot of our Americans killed, not sending help, knowing what was happening. That is worse than horrible, she gets off on all her crap she has caused. One day we will all answer, including her and you. God sees and hears all, can’t slide on this.

  2. It is clear that no one should pay any more attention to Fraudci, who is credibly alleged to have cooked up the plandemic idea in 2017 as a means of bringing down the hated new President who had just defeated Fraudci’s lover, and who apparently pitched the scheme to Soros, Gates and Schwab, democrat hierarchs and the Chicoms in a September 2019 meeting in New York at which the release of the virus was arranged. What is unclear is why anyone should pay the least attention to the opinions of Webb Hubbell’s untalented, unattractrive, grasping illegitimate daughter.

  6. Be like Amy Carter, stay in the background and out of sight. You’re just another magpie of the depraved Left. A malcontent like Crooked Hillary and Slick Willy.

  7. Tucker is only asking questions that the rest of the intelligent Americans are asking. If the vaccines work why are we still wearing masks, social distancing,. There is no benefit to the vaccine except maybe if you get COVID you might have a lighter case. Dr Fauci is a fear monger and needs to be taken off the air.

  8. We still live in the United States, freedom of speech……if you don’t like what one is saying on the internet, switch to another site……I have done this to get news, so I can weigh the pro and con on topics, I’ve even gone to other countries to see what’s happening in the United States…..they give me more than the American news report….you are taking away our right by telling them to take it down…..we do not all think alike…..and to tell the truth, the good Dr. has flipped, flopped like a fish out of water….so many times…..it’s hard to keep track on the topic……

  9. Agree with all posts! Yet another ugly demonrat rears her head, thinking SHE has a say in who can post on Facebook! She should stfu and go away!

  10. Who really cares what this child of entitlement thinks of has to say! Go tell her DIRTY RAPIST FATHER & THAT OLD LIAR OF A MOTHER!
