Howard Stern recently took a shot at UFC commentator Joe Rogan, who had credited ivermectin for his recovery from the COVID-19 when he could have just gotten vaccinated instead.
Howard Stern opens up on Joe Rogan
Stern spoke to his co-host Robin Quivers about the criticism he got for saying last week that Covid vaccines should be mandatory. Stern had also mocked the anti-vaccine “sh*theads” who accuse people of “worshipping” Dr. Anthony Fauci while “they take horse dewormer from a doctor.” Megan Fox Leaks Bad Conor McGregor Accusation
He referred to ivermectin which is the anti-parasitic medicine that has been regarded as a coronavirus treatment by numerous commentators even though public health officials have forewarned there’s little to no data actually showing it to be effective. Rogan, who is unvaccinated, recently recovered from COVID, and he took ivermectin along with a litany of other medicines.
Upon his recovery, Rogan fired back at CNN and other critics who called out his promotions of an unproven COVID remedy. This was noticed by Stern, who remarked that Rogan could have also gotten a vaccine — which Stern heralded as a “cure” — and skipped the whole ordeal.
“I heard Joe Rogan was saying ‘what are you busting my balls [for]? I took horse de-wormer and a doctor gave it to me.’ Well a doctor would also give you a vaccine, so why take horse-dewormer?”
Stern went on to reflect on the situation and questioned what would have been like if COVID anti-vaxers were around to reject the vaccine for polio. He also once again mocked how “all this anti-science goes out the window” when people wind up in the emergency room for Covid.
“There’s never been one that said ‘I’m so glad I refused. I’m so happy that I can’t breathe. This is a wonderful way to die, it was worth it because I didn’t take the vaccine,’” Stern said.
