You have to admit that it was clever of State Farm to cast Aaron Rodgers as a narcissistic twerp furious that he’s not getting special treatment:
“When the president of the United States says, ‘This is a pandemic of the unvaccinated,’ it’s because him and his constituents, which, I don’t know how there are any if you watch any of his attempts at public speaking, but I guess he got 81 million votes,” Rodgers said Thursday. “But when you say stuff like that, and then you have the CDC, which, how do you even trust them, but then they come out and talk about 75% of the COVID deaths have at least four comorbidities. And you still have this fake White House set saying that this is the pandemic of the unvaccinated, that’s not helping the conversation.”
(Editor’s note: The CDC study found that in a group of 1.2 million people who were fully vaccinated between December 2020 and October 2021, 36 of them had a death associated with COVID-19 — and that of those 36 people, 28, or about 78%, had at least four of eight risk factors.)
On New Year’s Day, Rodgers went on Instagram to recommend a three-hour interview Rogan did with Dr. Robert Malone, a virologist who had been recently banned from Twitter and YouTube for repeatedly violating policies on spreading what was labeled as “vaccine misinformation.”
“3 hours you won’t regret,” Rodgers wrote, sharing a link to “The Joe Rogan Experience.”
That Editor’s Note is not nearly forceful enough in correcting Rodgers’s disinformation — the widespread MAGA talking point that mixes up causes of death among the tiny percentage of deaths among vaccinated people as opposed to the population as a whole. Anyway…”fake White House” seriously fuck this guy.
