Tucker ripped into Dem Rep. Eric Swalwell last night after he stated that anyone flying on planes should be required to get the covid vaccination. Tucker said that Swalwell has had a venereal disease several times and that makes him unfit to dictate the health decisions of others.
During Tucker’s segment, a graphic was shown on the screen which had Swalwell in bed with suspected Chinese spy, ‘Fang Fang.’

On a flight now to Bay Area and it is one-hundred percent batty that the unvaccinated are allowed to fly. It’s unsafe in the cabin and we are transporting the virus. Requiring the vaccine to fly is the LEAST we can do to stop the spread.

According to the Daily Mail:
Swalwell, who married his second wife Brittany in 2016, has not confirmed or denied allegations that he and Fang were involved sexually.
Swalwell, the Democrat from California, drew Carlson’s ire after tweeting: ‘On a flight now to Bay Area and it is one-hundred percent batty that the unvaccinated are allowed to fly.
‘It’s unsafe in the cabin and we are transporting the virus.
‘Requiring the vaccine to fly is the LEAST we can do to stop the spread.’
Carlson blasted Swalwell’s suggestion during his monologue on Monday.
‘Well, the lesson that Eric Swalwell is drawing from all of this is that unvaccinated Americans should be banned by law from flying on airplanes in their own country,’ said Carlson.
‘Now, the airlines disagree with this. They thought a lot about it. So does any sane physician. They have too.
‘But Eric Swalwell, who’s probably the most physically unclean member of Congress, now imagines himself a public health official with the power to make these decisions.
‘So before we go any further and grant Eric Swalwell that power, we probably oughta see his medical records.
‘It’d be kind of ironic if a guy with multiple chlamydia infections was lecturing the rest of us about how to keep safe from a virus.
‘We await that data.’
There is no suggestion that Swalwell has ever contracted any STIs, and Carlson offered no further evidence to back up his assertion.
Carlson’s mention of Swalwell was preceded in the segment by his noting of the fact that two Democratic senators – Cory Booker of New Jersey and Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts – announced they tested positive for COVID-19.
‘Booker and Warren had at least six vaccine injections and now they’re sick,’ Carlson said.
‘So what is the lesson here exactly?’
In 2015, Fang left the United States after allegedly targeting possible up-&-comers in politics.
The Mail report adds:
It has been alleged that Fang used her charm and network abilities to gain proximity to powerful figures. Current and former US intelligence officials told Axios she may have been involved sexually with at least two Midwestern mayors.
It’s said that Fang helped Swalwell’s 2014 campaign with fundraising, and also that she placed an intern in his office.
Federal investigators alerted Swalwell that Fang was suspected of working with CCP intelligence in 2015. Swalwell severed ties with Fang after that and as of yet has not been accused of any wrongdoing.
Investigators believe that Fang’s actions are part of a larger effort by the Chinese Communist Party to gain access to powerful members of the US government.
