Fox News Claims Omicron Covid Variant Was Created To Make Pete Buttigieg President

Several Fox News hosts suggested that the Omicron variant of COVID-19 is part of a conspiracy to get out Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg elected president in 2024. The hosts of Fox & Friends on Saturday were talking about the most recently isolated variant of COVID-19, which is shutting down international travel and raising concerns that more lives will be lost in this pandemic. But Fox’s Rachel Campos-Duffy focused on the important question: is Pete Buttigieg somehow behind this? The hosts then debate how the Secretary of Transportation is failing and causing the supply chain issues, apparently forgetting that the supply chain slowdowns started in 2019 under former president Trump when he began his trade war with China. 2020 saw many discussions of supply chain issues, especially when referencing PPE for healthcare workers.
