Fox News host Tucker Carlson has called on his viewers to stop talking about Covid-19, claiming that it was time to move on from the uninteresting topic.
“If you find yourself living in a place where people are still talking about Covid nonstop two years in, it is time to move. Not just because your neighbours have been brainwashed—though obviously they have been—but because your neighbours are boring,” he said on the Fox News show Tucker Carlson Tonight on Thursday night.
Covid is simply not an interesting topic in one’s private life even though it has killed millions of people, he claimed.
“Yes, Covid has killed a lot of people,” he said. “So has prostate cancer. Imagine telling people about your prostate every day for the next two years.”
He added: “People would know that you were a narcissist. No one would sit next to you at dinner. You would be boorish. And that’s exactly what Covid talk sounds to the well-adjusted among us.”
