Jimmy Kimmel Drags Donald Trump Jr. for Urging Anti-Vax Protests
ABCThe Monday night edition of Jimmy Kimmel Live! saw the late-night host take aim at Republicans’ bizarre conspiracy-mongering over the Omicron variant, a new COVID variant that, according to the World Health Organization, “has several mutations that may have an impact on how it behaves, for example, on how easily it spreads or the severity of illness it causes,” though epidemiological studies are “still underway” to determine how dangerous of a threat it will pose. Out of caution, the U.S. has implemented travel restrictions against eight countries where Omicron has spread most rapidly: Botswana, Eswatini, Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa, and Zimbabwe.“But of course, the right-wingnuts have a theory on this,” cracked Kimmel. “Their theory is that this variant is some kind of ploy concocted by the Democrats to help them win elections. In fact, former White House doctor and current congressman from Texas, Ronny Jackson, tweeted on Saturday: ‘Here comes the MEV – the Midterm Election Variant! They NEED a reason to push unsolicited nationwide mail-in ballots. Democrats will do anything to CHEAT during an election – but we’re not going to let them!”(In March, a watchdog organization published a years-long report that found that Jackson, who’d previously served as Trump’s presidential physician, had “made ‘sexual and denigrating’ comments about a female subordinate, violated the policy for drinking alcohol while on a presidential trip and took prescription-strength sleeping medication that prompted concerns from his colleagues about his ability to provide proper care,” reported CNN.)Read more at The Daily Beast.
