Aaron Rodgers broke his silence about hiding his vaccination standing in an appearance on the Pat McAfee Show Friday. Enjoying each be aware on the canine whistle, the Packers QB went from calling the outrage in opposition to him not following Covid protocols whereas being unvaccinated a “witch hunt,” blaming a “woke mob,” and referencing “cancel tradition.” Rodgers then rounded out the fool buffet by saying he’s been consulting with Joe Rogan about taking the horse dewormer Ivermectin.
In a really astonishing interview it didn’t take three minutes for Rodgers to drop this line.
“I notice I’m within the crosshairs of the woke mob proper now, so earlier than the ultimate nail will get put in my cancel tradition casket, I’d prefer to set the file straight on among the blatant lies which might be on the market about me now.”
It’s as if Rodgers was taking part in Scattergories with individuals who imagine accomplice monuments ought to be preserved. The QB went on to say that the explanation he wasn’t vaccinated was as a result of he’s allergic to an ingredient current in each the Pfizer and Moderna vaccine.
There’s only one drawback: There’s no widespread ingredient in each variant of the Pfizer and Moderna vaccine exterior of its mRNA element. In keeping with the CDC elements reality sheets of each vaccines, they include the next:
The one widespread ingredient is sucrose, in any other case referred to as sugar — and Tromethamine, an especially widespread blood thinner used within the overwhelming majority of not simply vaccines, however any type of photographs — together with painkillers. As well as, there are variants of the Prizer vaccine which don’t include Tromethamine, particularly for individuals who do have allergy symptoms to the ingredient.
So the concept Rodgers had no different selection besides the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, as he said, is probably going one other lie. Both he’s not knowledgeable on the difficulty, or he’s as soon as once more willingly attempting to mislead individuals.
Rodgers justified his choice by saying “it says on the CDC’s personal web site that in case you have an allergy to any of the elements you shouldn’t get the vaccine.” No, it doesn’t … probably not. It says you shouldn’t get the vaccine in these instances except you could have a SERIOUS allergic response, or IMMEDIATE allergic response. Within the former it’s a case of affected by anaphylaxis, or hives, weezing or respiratory misery within the case of the latter.
As well as, if Rodgers really was allergic, the NFL would have granted him a medical exemption — which they didn’t.
The problem is barely partly that Rodgers didn’t get vaccinated, it’s that he lied or knowingly mislead — and retains mendacity or knowingly deceptive about it. Like a child with their hand caught in a cookie jar swearing it’s the cookie that bit his hand. Rodgers was reportedly “furious” word got out about his vaccination status. It’s as a result of he needs to play each side to protect his model.
In the present day he made it abundantly clear who he’s. Rodgers left little question that he’s at finest extraordinarily uninformed, and a part of a far bigger drawback.
Packers QB Aaron Rodgers: “The following nice chapter of my life is being a father.” Says he was issues that the vaccine would make him sterile had been a consider his choice.
“I am not some form of anti-vaxx, flat-earther.”

Saying you’re not an “anti-vaxx, flat-earther” in response to the Covid vaccine is type of like saying you’re “immunized” when requested should you’re vaccinated. It’s a deflection, a canopy, and all of the Ivermectin on this planet gained’t cease the injury he’s finished to how the world views Aaron Rodgers.
It actually wouldn’t have been troublesome to simply say “I’m not getting vaccinated.” That would have ended all this earlier than it started, however Aaron introduced this all on himself.
