Tucker Carlson erupts at Biden ambition for small groups at 4 July parties: ‘How dare you’

President hopes country may start getting back to normal by Independence Day

Tucker Carlson erupts at Biden ambition for small 4 July groups

Tucker Carlson erupted at Joe Biden’s claims that Americans they may get to celebrate 4 July this year with their families.

The president said in his nationwide address that if people get their vaccines when they are available that “there’s a good chance you, your families and friends, will be able to get together in your backyard or your neighbourhood and have a cookout.”

But that was not an acceptable approach for the fiery Fox News host who watched the address on his nightly show on the right-wing news channel.

“Who are you talking to? This is a free people, a free country. How dare you tell us who we can spend the Fourth of July with?” said an indignant Carlson.

Mr Biden told the nation that his plan to get 100 vaccine shots administered in his first 100 days was weeks ahead of schedule and would be completed in just 60 days.

And he announced that from 1 May every adult in America would be able to make an appointment to get their vaccine shot.

Carlson, who sparked controversy this week with his views on women in the military, also found fault in Mr Biden’s position on vaccines.

“He said, there will be enough vaccines for every person in America ... and if you take that shot, things potentially could get back to normal. No mention at all of the people who might not want to take the shot,” he complained.
