Aaron Rodgers is a controversial figure, especially in recent memory. He lied about being immunized against COVID-19 and that caused a huge issue. Now the current POTUS has something to say about it.
US President Joe Biden was recently visiting the tornado-ravaged parts of Kentucky. During this visit, the President found an opportunity to comment on Aaron Rodgers’ COVID vaccine drama.
During an earlier conversation with Pat McAfee, Rodgers had infamously declared that he has chosen to remain unvaccinated. He claimed that the reason for this decision is that he is allergic to the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines, and that the side effects of the Johnson & Johnson shot made that unviable for him as well.
During his visit, the President encountered a woman wearing a Green Bay cap and shirt, which was when he decided to make the quip about Rodgers’ vaccination status.
Tell that quarterback he’s gotta get the vaccine.
The President was only making a lighthearted joke, as evidenced by the cameras capturing the Packers fan and others laughing at the comment. However, others have also criticized Rodgers more seriously.
Howard Stern stated earlier that he believes Rodgers should be booted from the NFL over the vaccine drama. While the President may not share Stern’s harshness, he does seem to be on the same side of the issue. Check out the clip below.
