While Bill and Hillary Clinton have been relatively silent and out of the public eye recently, Chelsea Clinton seems to be increasing her public exposure. Some believe she is preparing to run for office. Now, she’s taking on Tucker Carlson of Fox News.
“Chelsea Clinton is calling on Facebook to ban Fox News host Tucker Carlson from the platform following a surge in online engagement with a post that included the conservative television personality’s speculation on the effectiveness of coronavirus vaccines,” according to The Hill. [emphasis added]
“The former first daughter on Wednesday tweeted a screenshot of a Facebook post that included Carlson’s monologue from the night before, in which he said, ‘If the vaccine is effective, there is no reason for people who have received the vaccine to wear masks or avoid physical contact.’
“‘So maybe it doesn’t work and they’re simply not telling you that,’ he added at the time…
“In response, Clinton tweeted, ‘In December, @facebook banned claims about #covid19 vaccines ‘that have been debunked by public health experts.’’ [emphasis added]
“Clinton added that the attention to Carlson’s segment was ‘especially troubling given Republican men are currently most likely to say they’re not interested in being vaccinated.’”

In December, @facebook banned claims about #covid19 vaccines “that have been debunked by public health experts.” And yet ⬇️. Especially troubling given Republican men are currently most likely to say they’re not interested in being vaccinated. https://t.co/NHWwn8vQ31
