Fox’s Tucker Carlson demanded Republicans to not be complacent about the threat of the coronavirus and said Republicans including President Trump are downplaying the dangers of the virus.
According to Breitbart, Carlson said, “This is real. That’s the point of this script — to tell you that. You’ll be forgiven if the whole thing snuck up on you as if from nowhere An obscure virus, arising from a meat market in eastern China to sicken American citizens in Oregon and New Hampshire and Illinois? It sounds ridiculous. Nor have our leaders helped us to take it seriously. On the left, you’ve heard them tell you that the real worry is that you might use the wrong word to describe what’s happening to the country. It’s racist, they’re telling you, to blame the most racist country in the world for the spread of this virus.”

It’s just partisan politics, they say. Calm down. In the end, this is just the flu, and people die from that every year. Coronavirus will pass. We’ll feel foolish for worrying when it does. That’s their position. No doubt these people have good intentions as they say it, many of them anyway. They may not know any better. They’re just not paying attention. Or they believe they’re serving some higher cause by shading reality. Nobody wants to be manipulated by a corrupt media establishment. There’s an election coming up; best not to say anything that might help the other side. We get it. But they’re wrong.
