Fox News host Tucker Carlson fired back after Chelsea Clinton urged Facebook to ban him, only to question why vaccinated people must comply with COVID-19 restrictions.
"Internationally known humanitarian and intellectual Chelsea Clinton has had enough of this show, so she called Facebook today to close us," Carlson said on his Fox News show Thursday night.
"DR. Chelsea Clinton is pissed off that we asked very obvious questions that everyone in the country should be asking," he added. are total fools who can't even coordinate their own topics of conversation and can't answer the most basic questions. "
"So does the vaccine, and there are some of them, but do they work or do they not work?" Carlson continued. “It's okay, you can tell us. Well the CEO of Pfizer came out and today seemed to suggest that the dose Pfizer is delivering is actually not working. "

"The Pfizer CEO has now said two doses are probably not enough," he said. "He said it was" likely that people will need a third dose of his company's coronavirus vaccine within 12 months of being fully vaccinated. "I think it's nice to know now. We didn't know yesterday."
"When Chelsea Clinton tried to pull us off the air for asking questions that he had partially answered," concluded Carlson. “Thank you Pfizer CEO, happy to know. Pfizer's CEO added it was possible that people could need to be vaccinated against coronavirus every year. That's good to know too. "
This came after Chelsea posted a screenshot on Twitter of Carlson's monologue from the night before, in which he said, “If the vaccine is effective, there is no need for people who received the vaccine to wear masks or have physical contact to avoid. Maybe it doesn't work and they just don't tell you that. "

This didn't go well with Chelsea trying to get Facebook to ban Carlson.
"In December, @Facebook prohibited claims over # Covid19 Vaccines exposed by public health experts. And yet… Particularly worrying given that Republican men are currently most likely to say they are not interested in getting vaccinated, ”Chelsea wrote.
