Alex Jones is getting it from people.
“It was not a fun Labor Day weekend Covid-wise,” said the late night host in his Jimmy Kimmel Live! monologue. “The number of new cases is up more than 300% from a year ago.”
He lamented not just the lack of progress, but the lack of science behind some Americans’ decision making.
“We’ve still got a lot of pandimwits out there,” Kimmel observed. “The poison control centers have seen a spike in calls from people taking livestock medicine (ivermectin) – to fight the Coronavirus – but they won’t take the vaccine.”
The logic of that eluded Kimmel.
“One of the reasons these Sea Biscuits are opting for ivermectin is because they don’t trust ‘big pharma’ – which is fine, I guess, except for the fact that ivermectin is made by Merck – which is the 4th largest pharmaceutical company in the world,” said the late night host.
Logically, he pointed out, “If a pharmaceutical company says ‘please don’t take the drug we’re selling’ you should probably listen to them.”
Americans seem to be listening instead to another noted expert in the field.
“Ivermectin did get a big endorsement over the weekend,” said Kimmel, “from one of America’s top medical minds. None other than Sandy Hook denier/internet lunatic – Alex Jones”
