Aaron Rodgers Rips Into Biden And Vaccine ‘Pseudo Witch Hunts’ In Fiery Interview

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers finally responded to President Joe Biden this week after the President made a comment to a Packers fan in December suggesting that the NFL superstar should get vaccinated. Rodgers also took aim at other controversial Biden comments as well as the NFL’s vaccination policies.

In an interview with ESPN published Friday, Rodgers said, “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.”

His remarks included calling the Biden administration a “fake White House” and questioning whether the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDCP) could be trusted.

While surveying tornado damage in Kentucky in December, Biden was videoed telling a woman wearing a Packers jacket, “Tell that quarterback he’s gotta get the vaccine.”

Last fall, Rodgers sparked controversy when he claimed he had been “immunized” against COVID-19 only to later clarify that he had not been vaccinated. Rodgers’ Packers were eliminated from the NFL playoffs by the San Francisco 49ers on Saturday night, despite being the top-seeded team in the National Football Conference.

Rodgers defended his use of the term “immunized” in the interview with ESPN. He also called the NFL’s investigations in players’ personal health choices a “witch hunt.”

He said, “I had a plan going in for that question [about his vaccination status] to be asked. It was a pseudo witch hunt going on — who was vaccinated, who wasn’t vaccinated. I was in a multi-month conversation that turned into an appeal process with the NFL at that time, and my appeal hinged on that exact statement [immunized]. So what I said was, number one, factually true. I went through a multi-immunization process. And at the end of that, I don’t know what you would call it, I would call it immunized.”

When Rodgers tested positive for COVID-19 in November he alleged he was allergic to Pfizer and Moderna vaccinations and that he did not want the Johnson & Johnson shot. The quarterback also faced overwhelming amounts of criticism after he took Ivermectin and other treatments discouraged by the Food and Drug Administration.

Rodgers told ESPN, “I don’t want to apologize for being myself. I just want to be myself.”
