Tucker Carlson slams Biden’s COVID speech: ‘How dare you tell us who we can spend the Fourth of July with’

Fox News host Tucker Carlson reacted to President Joe Biden’s prime-time COVID-19 speech on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” Thursday.

On the one-year mark of the country’s first COVID-19 lockdown, President Biden outlined his plan for returning to “normal” by July 4 in his first prime-time address.

Biden urged Americans to get the COVID-19 vaccine and continue wearing masks, warning that that the country could go back into lockdown if these precautions are not taken.

“Unity is what we do together as fellow Americans because if we don’t stay vigilant and the conditions change, we may have to reinstate restrictions to get back on track,” Biden said Thursday.

Carlson criticized Biden’s speech, saying there was no mention of people who do not want to receive the COVID vaccination.

“His plan consisting essentially of vaccines, vaccines and more vaccines,” Carlson said. “By May he said there will be enough vaccines for every person in America.”

“If you take that shot, things potentially could get back to normal. No mention at all of the people who might not want to take that shot,” Carlson said.

Biden noted that Americans who get the vaccine and continue following COVID precautions, would possibly be able to celebrate Independence Day “in your backyard or neighborhood” with “small groups.”

“By July the Fourth there’s a good chance you, your families and friends will be able to get together in your backyard or in your neighborhood and have a cookout or a barbecue and celebrate Independence Day,” Biden said.

“That doesn’t mean large events with lots of people together, but it does mean small groups will be able to get together. After this long hard year, it will make this Independence Day something truly special, where we not only mark our independence as a nation, but we begin to mark our independence from this virus,” Biden continued.

Biden’s speech elicited negative responses from many Americans, including Carlson.

“The President said, if you take that shot and wear you mask and listen to Dr. Fauci, it is possible, not assured, but possible that you might be able to gather in small groups with the ones you love for the Forth of July,” Carlson said.

“We might have to rescind that right,” Tucker echoed of Biden, “But it’s possible if you’re obedient you’ll get it.”

“Who are you talking to?” Carlson asked. “This is a free people. This is a free country. How dare you tell us who we can spend the Forth of July with?”

Many took to Twitter to slam Biden for his restrictive Independence Day guidelines.

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) tweeted, “Here’s an idea, Mr. President: Freedom.”

Another user wrote: “You know, I don’t feel like waiting for permission from resident Biden, or anyone else, to celebrate the 4th of July with as many patriotic Americans as I feel like.”

Prior to Biden’s speech, the White House released a statement regarding the holiday.

“As we approach July 4th, based on the best available science and the pace of vaccinations, the CDC will provide public health guidance for people as they travel, participate in small gatherings, and go to work and houses of worship,” the statement read.

Biden said that more guidance on “what you can and cannot do once fully vaccinated” would be released within weeks.

Oklahoma passes bill banning majority of abortions from ‘moment of fertilization’

Oklahoma’s Republican Governor Kevin Stitt signed a bill into law on Wednesday which bans virtually all abortions “from the moment of fertilization.”

“I promised Oklahomans that as governor I would sign every piece of pro-life legislation that came across my desk and I am proud to keep that promise today. From the moment life begins at conception is when we have a responsibility as human beings to do everything we can to protect that baby’s life and the life of the mother,” Stitt said in a statement. “That is what I believe and that is what the majority of Oklahomans believe.”

The state legislature first approved the bill, which goes into effect immediately, last week. It bans abortions from the moment of fertilization, except for in cases where rape or incest occurred, or where the mother’s life is in danger.

The law also allows for private citizens to sue doctors or those who participate in “producing an abortion for up to $10,000, mimicking the enforcement mechanism in Texas’s fetal heartbeat law” reports National Review.

Under the new law it is a felony offense to perform an abortion, “which will take effect in August unless a court challenge blocks it.”
