Fox News contributor Tammy Bruce called out the “horrible irony” of New York’s controversial eligibility for the COVID-19 oral antiviral treatment on “Fox & Friends Weekend” Saturday, claiming government health orders aimed at minorities makes people of color suspicious about the federal government’s intentions.
