Dr. Anthony Fauci, calling podcast host Joe Rogan “incorrect” for saying he would advise healthy young people against getting the COVID-19 vaccine:
“Well that’s incorrect, and the reason why is you’re talking about yourself in a vacuum then. You’re worried about yourself getting infected and the likelihood that you’re not gonna get any symptoms. But you can get infected and will get infected if you put yourself at risk. And even if you don’t have any symptoms, you’re propagating the outbreak because it is likely that you—even if you have no symptoms—that you may inadvertently and innocently then infect someone else who might infect someone who really could have a problem with a severe outcome.”
What is it with people on the right suddenly thinking they’re doctors or scientists? Rogan is a has-been actor, has-been comic, and a podcaster, so excuse the fuck outta me if I don’t want him dispensing medical advice.
Joe Rogan, asshat, walking back his idiotic comments:
“There’s some legitimate science behind [these vaccines]. This is the thing about this whole thing, people being upset at me: I’m not an anti-vax person. I said, ‘I believe [the vaccines are] safe,’ and I encouraged many people to take them. My parents were vaccinated. I just said, ‘I don’t think that if you’re a young, healthy person, that you need it.’ [But] their argument was, you need it for other people. That makes more sense, but that’s a different argument. That’s a different conversation.”
Wrong idiot. We have learned all along that wearing the mask is for “other,” to protect “others.” And we were told that getting the vaccine is the same deal: to protect others.
You just wanted to be cute and edgy and, well, stupid. Almost as stupid as your audience because anyone Who takes medical advice from the likes of Joe Rogan over Dr. Anthony Fauci is an idiot.
Lindsey Graham, Q-SC, says he does not believe systemic racism exists in law enforcement or other U.S. institutions because … Obama:
“No, not in my opinion. We just elected a two-term African American president … the vice president is of African American, Indian descent. [So] reform the police yes, call them all racists no. Within every society you have bad actors. Qualified immunity is a problem. It’s a pretty simple solution: Don’t sue the police officer, sue the department.”
First off, Aunt PityPat, you did not elect Barack Obama or Kamala Harris; I did. Along with tens of millions of others.
You, however, did, say, that:
“If you’re a young, African American or an immigrant, you can go anywhere in this state, you just need to be conservative, not liberal.”
Nope, nothing racist at all in that statement; you just act how Miss Lindsey wants you to act and you’re welcome in his state.
