Left-wing comedian Jimmy Kimmel made a disgusting “joke” about Americans who chose not to receive the new coronavirus vaccination.
Kimmel began, “Dr. Fauci said if hospitals get any more overcrowded they’re going to have to make some very tough choices about who gets an ICU bed.”
“That choice doesn’t seem so tough to me,” Kimmel continued.
“Vaccinated person having a heart attack? Yes, come right in, we’ll take care of you,” he added.
“Unvaccinated guy who gobbled horse goo? Rest in peace, wheezy,” Kimmel concluded.
It appears this was Kimmel’s attempt at humor, but it mirrors how many liberals have sincerely and publicly expressed the disgusting suggestion that unvaccinated Americans should be punished.
In fact, there are some Americans who have received a recommendation from their personal physician not to receive the coronavirus vaccination, particularly women who are pregnant.
“We’ve still got a lot of pan-dimwits out there,” Kimmel continued.
“People are still taking this ivermectin,” Kimmel said, taking a shot at Merck which is the company behind ivermectin.
“The poison control center has seen a spike in calls from people taking this livestock medicine to fight the coronavirus, but they won’t take the vaccine.”
“It’s like if you’re a vegan and you’re like, ‘No, I don’t want a hamburger, give me that can of Alpo instead.'”
Watch the clip:
Fellow comedian Joe Rogan recently fired back at those criticizing him about taking ivermectin, including CNN’s Jim Acosta.
Rogan says, “Do I have to sue CNN? They’re making s*** up. They keep saying I took horse dewormer.”
Anti-Trump CNN “journalist” Jim Acosata, who is actually the network’s “chief domestic correspondent” as well as a news anchor, falsely accused Rogan was taking a livestock dewormer to battle COVID-19.
“I literally got it from a doctor,” Rogan fired back. “It’s an American company. They won the Nobel Prize in 2015 for use in human beings, and CNN is saying I’m taking horse dewormer,” Rogan said.
“They must know that’s a lie,” Rogan said, referring to the fact that Acosta is calling it “livestock dewormer ivermectin.”
Acosta, who is accused of lying about Rogan’s treatment, made the remark during an interview with another liar, Dr. Anthony Fauci.
Acosta said, “The podcast host Joe Rogan, he came down with COVID. He says he’s been taking the livestock dewormer ivermectin as well as other treatments that people talk about on the internet and so on.”
“Doesn’t have any effect on COVID, obviously,” Acosta smugly stated.
Acosta obviously isn’t a doctor — of course — but rather a fake news journalist.
On the other hand, Rogan argues that “multiple doctors” recommended he take ivermectin to treat COVID-19.
Rogan continued, “They try to make it seem like I’m doing some wacky s*** that’s completely ineffective.”
“CNN was saying that I’m a distributor of misinformation,” Rogan complained.
In fact, the people guilty of spreading misinformation about ivermectin has been the news media itself. Take a look at this:
“The Associated Press had to issue a correction to an article published in late August that claimed 70% of calls made to the Mississippi Department of Health were from people who had ingested the livestock version of Ivermectin,” the Daily Wire reports.
“The story followed media hyping the idea that people were taking a common horse dewormer to treat COVID-19. Someone, somewhere may have done this, but the media has treated it as if it is a common phenomenon — and have been proven wrong,” the report continues.
“In another instance of misinformation, a false news story of an Oklahoma hospital being overrun by patients overdosing on ivermectin was pushed by numerous journalists, commentators, and others. The hospital later released a statement correcting the record, knocking down the claims of a former doctor who left the hospital months ago,” the Daily Wire concludes.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has warned people that it is not safe for humans to take and has not been scientifically linked to treating COVID-19 symptoms, according to Fox News. It is typically used to treat parasitic worms in animals, the report says.
