Tucker Carlson on Wednesday night doubled down on his criticism of Anthony Fauci‘s recommendation to continue wearing masks, stepping up his attack after Fauci accused him of spreading a ‘crazy conspiracy theory’.
The clash began on Tuesday, when the Fox News host questioned why people who were fully vaccinated were recommended to continue wearing face masks and suggested the vaccines didn’t work.
‘So maybe it doesn’t work, and they’re simply not telling you that,’ Carlson said.
‘That’s just a typical crazy conspiracy theory,’ Fauci responded during an interview on Wednesday.
Later that night, Carlson hit back at the disease expert, demanding to know; ‘If this stuff works, why can’t you live like it works? What are you really telling us here?’
‘For months now, we have been asking a very straightforward question about the coronavirus vaccine,’ Carlson said on his Fox show.
‘Why do people who take it -and by the way, why do people who have been previously infected and show high levels of antibodies – have to live under the restrictions that the vaccines were supposed to eliminate?’ he asked.
