Tucker Carlson rages about COVID: See Twitter’s best meme reactions
Tucker Carlson is trending on Twitter today, it’s surprising the tweets aren’t coming in even more droves than they already are.
Tucker Carlson went on Fox News last night, as he’s known to do, and said some, well, interesting things. The political commentator had a lot to say about COVID-19 vaccine passports, and equated their use to a new era of “medical Jim Crow” in the U.S., as the cringe-o-meter went off the charts like never before.
Twitter had lots to say about Tucker Carlson and his recent thoughts since they dropped on Fox last night, but users had even more to say about Carlson’s slip up when it appeared he was about to say that segregation in the U.S. was one of the best (and not worst) things to happen in American history. Oh boy, Tucker – this is quite the boner, even for you. Let’s see what Twitter had to say about Tucker’s spirited session on the air.

Twitter started off responding to the viral clip of Tucker Carlson saying “segregation was the – worst thing this country ever did” after pursing his lips into a “b” shape after “the” with some simple gifs. As this gif shows, it doesn’t look great for you, Tucker.

This reaction using a Liar Liar clip seems to have more sympathy for Tucker Carlson than most on Twitter. The gif seems to say, “we all get mixed up sometimes”. Sure, Tucker, that’s got to be it.

Medical Jim Crow
As if Tucker Carlson’s slip of the tongue wasn’t enough to get him trending, Tucker Carlson also told audiences Medical Jim Crow has come to America (SMDH). As this reaction shows, Twitter had plenty to say.
