He started with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) initial reaction to the pandemic threat all the way through the contradictions of Biden health adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci. Transcript as follows: It was a year ago this week that Nancy Pelosi was walking the streets of San Francisco’s Chinatown without any concern whatsoever for her personal safety. Nancy Pelosi’s face was stark naked. She wasn’t wearing a mask, neither were the dozens of people who surrounded her. A local CBS affiliate was on the scene following all of it, but even the coronavirus was already spreading all over the world in places like France and South Korea and we now know here in the U.S., CBS didn’t suggest that anything was amiss. They didn’t report that Nancy Pelosi was a walking biohazard or a super … [Read more...] about Carlson: ‘Public Health Experts Are Scrambling to Avoid Humiliation’ of Pandemic-Response Failures
