Tucker Carlson calls Barack Obama a ‘creepy old man’
Fox News host Tucker Carlson used his Monday night show to blow up Barack Obama, going so far as to call the former president a “creepy old man.”
Carlson said this in response to a new PSA Obama did for NBC News in which he called on Americans to get vaccinated against COVID-19.
“NBC is running now, and you might have seen these public service announcements (public service announcements) with their on-air talents demanding everyone in the country get the hang of it. Barack Obama just posted this scary little video asking young children to have their picture taken, ”Carlson said.
He then released a clip of the PSA, which originally aired last week.
“Hi everyone, this is Barack. Now that all Americans over 16 are eligible to receive the vaccine, I want to talk about the fact that you are getting yours, ”Obama said, Newsweek. “The vaccine is safe, effective, free. I have one, Michelle has one, people you know have one. And now you can get one too.
“It’s the only way to get back to everything we love, spending time with grandparents, going to concerts, watching sports live,” he continued. “So get yourself vaccinated as soon as possible.”

Not stopping there, the Fox News host described the PSA as “a scary old man telling your children, your grandchildren to take drugs whose effects we don’t fully understand.” It’s completely normal, yes, it happens every day. Don’t ask questions, just do it.
Carlson then aired a CNN clip in which medical analysts explained how increasing vaccination rates correlated with decreasing infection rates in the community.
“As CNN recently explained, we will only regain our freedom when you [vaccinate your children]Carlson said.

Carlson has long been one of the few members of the media who can even question anything about coronavirus vaccines. The backlash is already building against him for using Obama, who is fundamentally seen as a saint in the eyes of the left, to try to prove his point last night.
