Fox News’ Tucker Carlson admitted to omitting Colin Powell’s health complications after using the former Secretary of State’s death to go on a diatribe against the effectiveness of coronavirus vaccines.
On Monday, Carlson led his show with the news from Powell’s family that he died of Covid complications at the age of 84. Carlson honed in on the fact that Powell died despite being fully vaccinated against Covid, saying “that fact does not make his death any less sad nor is it unusual. Many thousands of vaccinated Americans have died of Covid.”
“So, what does that tell you, exactly?” Carlson asked. “Well, it tells you, you’ve been lied to. Vaccines may be highly useful for some people, but across a population, they do not solve Covid. That’s not speculation, it is an observable fact. People who’ve been fully vaccinated can still get the virus, they can still transmit the virus to others, and they can still die from Covid. Colin Powell is hardly the only example of that.”
In his remarks, Carlson glossed over the fact that Covid vaccines make it far less likely for a person to become seriously ill from a breakthrough Covid case, plus they lower the extent of Covid’s contagiousness. While Carlson did acknowledge Powell’s age, he said nothing about how Powell was immunocompromised after suffering from multiple myeloma during his life.
The context of Powell’s health complications went untouched until the very end of Carlson’s show, where he said “we left out that Colin Powell was suffering from a number of different health problems.”
