Carlson Tells QAnon Church He Remains Unvaccinated

The Voice Of San Diego reports:

Last Saturday, Awaken Church hosted Fox News pundit Tucker Carlson at its San Marcos campus, one of five countywide. Carlson is just the latest right-wing luminary to make the trip. Dennis Prager, Candace Owens and Charlie Kirk have all spoken at the church, and just three weeks ago it hosted a conference that featured Michael Flynn, Roger Stone and Eric Trump.

The crowd at Awaken erupted in applause when he scoffed at the idea of getting a second booster shot, and insinuated he hadn’t been vaccinated at all. “I skipped the first three, I’m not getting that one either,” Carlson said. The night wrapped up with a Q&A between the Fox News host and Awaken lead pastor Jurgen Matthesius, known for his especially vitriolic sermons, and his wife and fellow pastor, Leanne.

The Daily Beast reports:

The loudest anti-vax voice among a plethora of Fox News cranks, Carlson had repeatedly leaned on privacy rights to justify not providing his vax status when asked.

“When was the last time you had sex with your wife and in what position? We can trade intimate details,” Carlson texted The New York Times last year when asked.

And while the far-right cable host has loudly demonized others who’ve imposed vaccine mandates, his principles stopped at Fox News’ door as he largely remained mum about their strict protocols, prompting others in the media to call him out for his blatant hypocrisy.
