    Part of the current news article on confusing masks and vaccine mandate even in US at Fox News by Tucker Carlson: Democrats and the CDC have been lying about COVID and the vaccine ... "Now — surprise, surprise — they’re demanding that even after you got the shot, you wear a mask again, even when you’re outside." ..... "What’s going on here? Why are they doing this? There must be some reason for it. We’ve been wondering about it all week. Yesterday we asked the CDC to explain the reasoning behind it. They couldn’t tell us. Today they did. What an explanation. It turns out that the COVID vaccines — those wonder drugs that were absolutely perfect, more impressive than the moon landing, the drugs you were not allowed to question in any way — don’t actually work in the way they told us they did. The science is more complicated than we thought."..... "There’s still an awful lot we don’t know. These are, after all, experimental drugs, and they’re behaving like it. The bottom line is that a huge number of vaccinated people are getting COVID, and some of them are getting very sick, even dying. That’s true around the world:...
