Radio icon Howard Stern tore podcaster and vaccine skeptic Joe Rogan apart for taking deworming medication once he fell ill with COVID-19.
“I heard Joe Rogan say” What are you breaking my balls [for]? I took horse dewormer and a doctor gave it to me, ”Stern said Monday. “Well, a doctor would give you a vaccine too, so why take a horse dewormer?” “
The “king of all media” has doubled down on comments he made last week by telling anti-vaccines who get sick to stay out of hospitals.
“Stay home. Die over there with your COVID,” Stern said on Monday. “Don’t take the cure, but don’t clog our hospitals with your COVID when you finally get it. Don’t bother with the cure. science, it’s too late Fuck you, we just don’t have time for you.
He also pointed out the hypocrisy of anti-vaccines asking for help at the hospital.
“All this anti-science shit goes out the window when people end up in the emergency room and they can’t breathe,” Stern said:
“And then they say ‘I should have taken the vaccine.’ All of them. There’s never been one who said, “I’m so glad I refused.” I’m so happy I can’t breathe. It’s a wonderful way to die. was worth it because I didn’t take the vaccine.
As for Rogan, the podcaster claimed he was “not anti-vaxx”. However, he also caused hesitation about the vaccine by falsely stating that young and healthy people do not need to be vaccinated.
He later admitted he was a “fucking jerk”.
When he contracted the coronavirus, Rogan panicked and took just about everything he could, proven and unproven, including monoclonal antibodies, azithromycin, prednisone, a drop of NAD, a vitamin drip and ivermectin, the deworming drug Stern refers to, which is more commonly used in cattle and has not been proven effective for COVID-19.
