Howard Stern Calls Aaron Rodgers A ‘Liar’ About Covid-19

By News Creatives Authors , in Business , at November 9, 2021

On his SiriusXM radio show Monday, Howard Stern called Green Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers a “f—-ing liar.” Not just a “liar.” Not a “ball chucking liar.” But a “f—-ing liar.” And in this case, “f—-ing” did not stand for “footballing.”

Why the stern words from Stern? Well, assuming that you haven’t been dizzy from taking ivermectin, you may have heard about the recent events surrounding Rodgers. Last week, Rodgers tested positive for the Covid-19 coronavirus. That alone wasn’t the big news. No, news emerged that Rodgers had never been vaccinated against Covid-19, even though he had apparently previously left people the impression that he was vaccinated.

Who might have left folks with the impression that Rodgers was vaccinated against Covid-19? Hmmm, let’s see. Back in August, when a reporter asked Rodgers whether he’s been vaccinated against Covid-19, how did Rodgers respond? Did he say, “no”, “not yet”, “hold please”, or even “I can’t tell you, because of hippos?” No, Rodgers responded, “yeah, I’ve been immunized,” as seen in the following Inside Edition segment:

In this case, presumably “yeah” means “yeah.” And “immunized” seems to be another way of saying “vaccinated.” Yet, when asked why he had said “immunized” when he didn’t actually receive the Covid-19 vaccine, Rodgers somewhat vague answers suggested that by “immunized” he had meant receive some kind of homeopathic “treatment,” as Nicholas Reimann covered for Forbes. This was a “treatment” not supported by much scientific evidence and not authorized by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Isn’t that like saying, “yeah, I play in the NFL,” when you really meant “Not full of lube” rather than the National Football League?

All of this has gotten Rodgers a discount double-what-the-bleep from various sports commentators, talk show hosts, and others. Stern was the latest to appear cheesed off by what the Green Bay Packers quarterback has done and said. Stern began a segment on “The Howard Stern Show” with, “I was so worked up over the weekend about this [bleeping] Aaron Rodgers of the NFL. I don’t even know where to begin with that story. I mean, this [bleeping] guy.”

He continued with “I know the guy’s a real good football player, that’s why they put up with his [expletive].” After a brief interlude, Stern added, “If there was decency in this world, I would throw this guy out of the football league so fast.”

When Rodgers recently appeared on “The Pat McAfee Show” on Friday, the quarterback said, “I’ve consulted with a now-good friend of mine, Joe Rogan, after he got Covid and I’ve been doing a lot of the stuff that he recommended in his podcasts and on the phone to me.”

Here’s a clip from that show:

Yes, you heard that correctly. Rodgers credited podcaster Rogan for providing medical advice. It’s been a while since Rogan got his medical degree. And in this case, a while means infinity times infinity. That’s because Rogan he himself said earlier this year, “I’m not a doctor, I’m a (bleeping) moron. I’m not a respected source of information, even for me.” Would you get a guy to quarterback your NFL team if he had said, “I’m not a quarterback, I’m a (bleeping) what-the-heck-is-a-football-moron. I’m not a respected source of passes, even for me?”

“I don’t know where these guys get their information from,” Stern said on his show about Rodgers consulting Rogan about Covid-19 treatments. “You got doctors who study in medical school. I don’t know what has happened to this country.” Many professional football players and coaches complain about fans armchair quarterbacking all the time. Well, armchair doctoring is just as bad, if not worse.

Stern also had a suggestion for Rodgers: “I say the next time this [bleep] head gets injured on the field. They should bring in Joe Rogan to fix the bones. They should have him treat him. He’s the only doctor they should have treat him.” Except, that last line from Stern should be replaced with “he’s the only podcaster they should have treat him,” because Rogan is a podcaster and not a doctor.

Stern hasn’t been the only one to use the “l” word to describe Rodgers. For example, on a FOX Sports segment this past weekend, former Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Terry Bradshaw said it would be nice if Rodgers, leaned “not to lie, because that’s what you did, Aaron, you lied to everyone.” The following MSNBC segment includes the clip of Bradshaw saying these things:

To be fair, not all types of ivermectin are for cattle. There are human versions, but as I covered for Forbes previously, there isn’t enough scientific evidence to support the use of ivermectin to prevent or treat Covid-19, as I’ve covered before for Forbes. Plus, ivermectin can have its side effects such as headaches and dizziness.

It’s OK to tell everyone that you haven’t gotten the Covid-19 vaccine as long as you maintain other Covid-19 precautions such as social distancing and wearing face masks. After all, you are free to go without clothes just as long you don’t go waving your junk in public. It’s something very different to not tell other people that you’re unvaccinated. Other people have a right to know that you may be at higher risk for carrying the Covid-19 coronavirus. It’s something completely different to suggest to others that you have been vaccinated when you actually haven’t. That’s putting others at greater risk when they don’t even realize it. And that’s when people start saying something about your pants being on fire.
