“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 told ESPN.
Citing a recent Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announcement that revealed 75% of vaccinated adults who died of COVID-19 had at least four comorbidities, Rodgers argued it’s obvious the vaccine can’t guarantee protection against the virus. Yet that’s what Biden is telling the public, he said.
“How do you even trust them?” Rodgers said. “When in the course of human history has the side that’s doing the censoring and trying to shut people up and make them show papers and marginalize a part of the community ever been [the correct side]?”
Rodgers faced criticism late last year after he revealed he had not gotten vaccinated against COVID-19. He has defended that decision, saying he is open-minded to all sides regarding the vaccines but does not feel the need to get one. He has also claimed he is allergic to the Moderna and Pfizer shots.
“Freedom of speech is dangerous now if it doesn’t align with the mainstream narrative,” Rodgers said when asked about the pushback he faced. “That’s, I think first and foremost, what I wanted people to understand, and what people should understand is that there’s censorship in this country going on right now.”
