White Home Slams Joe Rogan After Proper Wing Podcaster Tells Youthful Listeners to Not Get COVID Vaccine

“Did Joe Rogan become a doctor while we weren’t looking?”

In a rare move, several White House officials in Biden respond to the podcaster Joe Rogan, a popular right-wing culture warrior reaching out to a wide audience to combat vaccine hesitation as COVID vaccinations decline thanks to conservatives who spread false information and misinformed opinions – which Rogan shared last Friday.

Dr. Anthony FauciThe director of the U.S. National Institute for Allergies and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), who also serves as chief medical officer to President Joe Biden, beat up Rogan for telling the audience younger Americans shouldn’t get the coronavirus vaccine – an opinion which is not based on scientific knowledge.

“That’s wrong,” the normally diplomatic immunologist told Savannah Guthrie, co-host of “TODAY,” “and why you’re talking about yourself in a vacuum.”

“You are concerned that you will be infected and that you are unlikely to get any symptoms,” he added. “But you can and will get infected if you put yourself at risk. And even if you don’t have symptoms, spread the outbreak because even if you don’t have symptoms, it is likely that you accidentally and innocently infect someone who might infect someone who might really have a problem with a severe outcome. “

Rogan said on his Spotify podcast (the company paid him $ 100 million to license his show), “You should get vaccinated if you are vulnerable,” but added, “It’s crazy” that it’s “controversial” is to say, “I am not.” I’m going to inject my child with the vaccine. “

“We’re not even talking about the flu, we just found out that 20,000 people were killed in the last year, we’re not talking about that right, we’re talking about something that is not statistically dangerous for children,” Rogan told his millions of people Listeners who spread more misinformation that will likely help even more Americans not to get vaccinated.

“COVID-19 has killed thousands of young Americans,” a Business Insider article revealed in January. Countless articles over the past six months, especially on local news outlets, describe the deaths of younger Americans, and especially those who are people of color.

“Are you in good health?” Rogan said he would ask a 21-year-old. “Are you a healthy person? Look, don’t do anything stupid, but you should take care of yourself. You should – if you are a healthy person and you exercise all the time and you are young and eat well, I think you shouldn’t have to worry about that, ”says the coronavirus.

Spotify’s Joe Rogan encouraged “healthy” 21 year olds not to get a coronavirus vaccine. Experts estimate that society may need to reach a critical mass of 70% to 90% of people vaccinated to achieve herd immunity. https://t.co/3Q5Ub8bEDR pic.twitter.com/xaZBC6ObNR

While the death rate for younger Americans is lower than that of middle-aged and older Americans, children and young adults will develop the disease and die from it. Because of their often asymptomatic status, they are also more likely to pass the virus on to others. And death is not the only concern, as millions with “long COVID” can testify.

Fauci isn’t the only Biden officer criticizing Rogan.

“I think my first question would be, did Joe Rogan become a doctor while we weren’t looking? I’m not sure if Joe Rogan’s scientific and medical advice is the most productive way to get information, ”White House communications director Kate Bedingfield told CNN on Wednesday (the relevant segment starts at 4:16 am) .

“We really have a unique opportunity now to seize the moment … not only to create jobs, but also to create jobs in the long run,” said Kate Bedingfield, White House communications director, ahead of Biden’s address to Congress tonight. //t.co/mrVyxXNd3R pic.twitter.com/vx2X8HH7gL
