Tucker Carlson slammed 'idiot Republicans' for focusing on Cuba rather than the 'tyrannical' United States government while defending people who spread vaccine misinformation.
His comments also came after Senator Ted Cruz, along with a slew of Democratic and Republican lawmakers, announced a bipartisan resolution on Thursday condemning 'the Cuban communist regime's violent response' to Cuban citizens.
'I glad you mentioned Cuba, because even today idiot Republicans on the hill spent their whole day talking about the lack of freedom in Cuba,' Carlson said on his show.
'And it's not a free country, that's true - but increasingly neither are we and they don't seem to notice what's going on in the country they're supposed to be running.'Insurance Loans Mortgage Attorney Credit Lawyer

President Joe Biden said Friday that social media companies are 'killing people' by failing to police misinformation on their platforms about COVID-19 vaccines.
Biden's comments came a day after U.S. Surgeon General Vivek Murthy declared misinformation about the vaccines a threat to public health, and as U.S. officials advised that deaths and serious illness from the virus are almost entirely preventable because of the vaccines.
