TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): Joe Biden's Justice Department, for example, has just threatened to sue any state that blocks, quote, "gender-affirming care for children." Now, gender-affirming care is a euphemism for chemical castration, radical plastic surgery, and other treatments for gender dysphoria. 


CARLSON: So do the science people have a single long-term study showing the longitudinal effects of chemical castration hormone treatment on children? No, not one. They're just making it all up.


CARLSON: It was just the other day they were telling us that medical decisions were between a citizen and his or her doctor, that it was your body, your choice, and politicians should not be telling doctors what kind of medical care to provide. Weren't they just telling us that? But now, they are – politicians are telling doctors what medical care to provide? 

STEPHEN MILLER (GUEST): Well, it's a great point. And here's another wrinkle. For two years we were lectured, you can't give people hydroxychloroquine, you can't give them ivermectin. These have not gone through randomized, controlled clinical studies for the application to COVID. Never mind they've been around for four decades and the side effects are minimal. 

Tucker, the use of testosterone to change someone's gender is off-label. Doctors are being forced to use these drugs in an off-label, unauthorized fashion to castrate boys and girls. Future generations will look on us today with astonishment and horror.

CARLSON: And it won't be long. I'm laughing because this is – this is too silly to continue, I do think. I think this is – this is not going to work long-term.
