The Fox host began, “According to the Hennepin County Medical Examiner’s Office, George Floyd wasn’t simply high, he had a lethal amount of fentanyl in his system. He also had methamphetamines.”

Carlson continued, “ Well, Mr. Floyd was having trouble breathing, of course, the most noted part of the tape. What explains that? Why was George Floyd telling officers, ‘I can’t breathe?'”

The Conservative pundit closed, “Well, here’s one possible explanation. One of the primary symptoms of fentanyl overdose is quote ‘slowed or stopped breathing, leading to unconsciousness and death.’ That might also explain why George Floyd was saying ‘I can’t breathe’ long before any police officer’s knee was anywhere near him. In fact, George Floyd was complaining that he couldn’t breathe as cops tried to get him in a police car as he resisted.”
