Brett Favre Gets Ambushed By CNN About Vaccines In NFL

Former Green Bay Packers quarterback Brett Favre interviewed with CNN under the guise of getting the word out about his new PSA about the dangers of letting children play tackle football but was grilled on his vaccine stance by the liberal network.

Favre barely got in a word of warning to parents about how they should keep children under 14 out of tackle football to prevent the repeated traumatic brain injuries that lead to CTE, a disease that affects NFL players who have received multiple concussions throughout their careers before CNN anchor Kate Bolduan baited him into a conversation about vaccine hesitancy.  

“Why do you think there is such a struggle among some athletes — especially when people look to them as role models — when it comes to the COVID vaccine?” she asked

Favre gamely replied that there was a “great deal of uncertainty” around the COVID shot, “you hear one thing one day and you hear something totally different the next.”

He also expressed his concern about the rapid speed that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved emergency use of the vaccine at, which rivals the normal standard of years of testing before a drug typically hits the market.  

“We’re sort of the human trial if you will, and I think some people are frightened by that,” he said.

Bolduan countered that the vaccine is “safe, effective, and needed,” then pressed further. “Would you urge your current players to get the vaccine? Have you been vaccinated?” She invasively asked.

Favre declined to “say one way or the other” and responded that it’s not his place to tell others to get vaccinated, that if they’re concerned they should consult with a trusted physician.

“[So] you don’t trust the vaccines?” She continued but was cut off by Concussion Legacy Foundation founder Chris Nowinski, who pointed the conversation back towards CTE.

Nice to see that moron was cut off on her idiocy about shots. It’s still America. Either I have a shot or I don’t. Obviously having the shot dies not make you 100%. So cut the fool off. She’s an idiot!

When they started to push the jab, it was nearly 100% effective. Now, not so much. 40-50% max. Therefore the need for a booster. And, if vaxed, you still get it and can infect others. Soooooo, what’s the purpose of the jab?
The sad thing is that companies are now mandating it if you want to keep your job.
Our rights and freedoms GONE!
But hey, joe got elected and thank goodness we have a female VP.
Not just a female, a woman of color!
I’m so excited…….with anger and disgust.

Better yet,
TO ALL CELEBRITIES:
Shut your mouth. No one wants to hear or cares what you think.
Eventually no one will go see your movies. I stopped long ago.
