Ultra-liberal comedian Joe Oliver laid into podcast superstar Joe Rogan over his recent statement that there was little reason for young and healthy people to be vaccinated against Covid-19.
The notoriously left-wing commentator called Rogan ‘a F***ing Moron’ over the comments.
As The Daily Wire reports:
“Our best way out of this mess long-term is clearly vaccines,” argued Oliver. “These vaccines can save not just your life but the lives of people around you, and it’s genuinely dispiriting that just a few months into the vaccine rollout we are already at this point. And the problem is, for the coronavirus, the herd immunity threshold is thought to be between 70 and 90% of the population, but a survey found that while 60% of American adults have got — or want to get — the vaccine, and about 18% say ‘maybe,’ and 22% say ‘no.’”
Like other liberal media figures and outlets, Oliver then focused on the impact “right-wing” media is having on the issue.
“If you’re thinking, Yeah, I’m not sure I’ll need it. Joe Rogan says I’m probably fine. It is true: You might not get seriously sick from COVID — or indeed sick at all — but you could still inadvertently pass it to someone who could then die,” said Oliver. “And before you say, ‘Well, vulnerable people should just get vaccinated then,’ the vaccines are only 95% effective… so they’ll probably be OK, but maybe not. Also, the more the virus circulates, the likelier we’ll see mutations that make it more dangerous, possibly helping it to evade the vaccine completely, putting us all the way back to square one, so get the f***ing vaccine!”…
“Stop listening to what Joe Rogan tells you, he’s a ‘f***ing moron’—and those are his words, not mine,” Oliver concluded.
