Tucker Carlson supports fellow Fox News contributor who refused a COVID vaccination

Fox News host Tucker Carlson defended Fox News contributor Lisa Boothe after she announced she is not vaccinated against COVID-19, and has no plans of doing so.

“I, as a 36-year-old woman with no underlying conditions, have a 99.97 percent chance of survival against Covid. So I was on the fence because it didn’t make sense to get vaccinated for a virus that is not a threat to my life, nor one that I fear,” Boothe said, according to Mediaite.

“But now, I’m doubling down as a giant middle finger to Joe Biden’s tyranny, because now it’s a fight for freedom. Now it’s a fight against tyranny in America and that’s what this is all about. We are literally fighting right now for the future of this country,” she added.

Tucker to the rescue?

During his Tuesday program, Tucker discussed the New York City vaccine mandate protests. He then spoke up in defense of Boothe’s decision. “Just the other day, CNN’s propaganda slandered our friend Lisa Boothe for turning down the shot,” he said.

“Now, Boothe is in her thirties, she’s healthy, and more to the point she’s an American citizen. She grew up with the now outdated belief that she was allowed to choose her own medical care. But more than anything – and this is really the point tonight – Lisa Boothe is a responsible person.”

Carlson added: “She cares about others. She would never under any circumstances even consider for example, coughing spittle into her own hands and rubbing it on other people without telling them.”

Boothe gives thanks

Boothe took to Twitter to thank Carlson for his public support. “This is cool. The last part is hilarious. Appreciate it, ⁦@TuckerCarlson⁩!” she tweeted.

The news comes as Fox News has been under attack regarding its view on COVID-19 vaccine mandates. Its hosts have more frequently encouraged vaccination, while the network appears to require either vaccination or regular testing, at least for those working in its New York City-based offices.

However, many in the mainstream media have often criticized Fox News for taking a stance against COVID-19 vaccinations and mandates.

The controversy over vaccine mandates will undoubtedly continue. However, Americans are entitled to freedoms that allow them to choose what goes into their body, and try as they might, Democrats will never be able to take that away from millions of them.
