Aaron Rodgers will miss the Green Bay Packer’s contest vs the Kansas City Chiefs this Sunday.
The quarterback tested positive for COVID-19 and is forced to sit out the contest due to the NFL’s discriminatory policies against unvaccinated players.
Rodgers made an appearance on “The Pat McAfee Show” and explained his side of the story.
And he dropped some major truth bombs!
AARON RODGERS: "When Trump in 2020 was championing these vaccines, what did the left say? Don't trust the vaccine. Don't get the vaccine… What happened? Biden wins and everything flips. Shouldn't that give you a little bit of pause?… Isn't this about health, not politics?" pic.twitter.com/z2d9lnIiP5

Rodgers called out:
-The media’s ridicule of President Trump for touting the potential benefits of HCQ
-The left’s hypocrisy for flipping on their beliefs about the experimental COVID-19 jabs
-The medical establishment for refusing to promote real health and effective therapeutics
Rodgers emphasized health shouldn’t be political and he’s exactly right.
The Super Bowl champion made media heads explode further with this next clip.
Look who he’s taking health advice from to treat COVID-19:

48 hours after his diagnosis and he feels great taking the therapeutics recommended by Rogan.
How about that?
Dr. Pierre Kory of the FLCCC supports his therapeutic approach:
As a New Yorker living in Wisconsin (Jets more than a Pack fan), I am thrilled to hear my #2 quarterback, Mr. @AaronRodgers12 (Mike White is #1) is quietly and quickly recovering with a combo of IVM & other evidence based Rx strategies. I concur with this therapeutic approach😀 https://t.co/nOHa9x66fX

And I’m going to keep it real here.
We need to hear this from President Trump too.
Promote the safe, effective therapeutics that more and more Americans know works against COVID-19.
Stop recommending and/or bragging about the experimental COVID-19 injections and admit they’re a total failure.
Because this will be the result if he continues suggesting his base to get the COVID-19 jab.
And he should go 1,000x harder on Biden for the medical tyranny his administration is ushering into this country.
Ending COVID-19 jab mandates is the most important issue to millions of Americans right now.
Trump’s base needs to hear him go full throttle against medical mandates that have ruined the lives of Americans.
We need more of this:

Let the woke mob cry about those who reject this experiment like they’re whining about Aaron Rodgers.
From the New York Post:
The Packers quarterback appeared on “The Pat McAfee Show,” speaking for about 15 uninterrupted minutes about all of the factors that went into his decision not to be vaccinated — and all of his issues with the backlash he has received.
“I realize I’m in the crosshairs of the woke mob right now, so before my final nail gets put in my cancel-culture casket, I think I’d like to set the record straight on some of the blatant lies that are out there about myself right now,” Rodgers began.
Rodgers said he didn’t “lie” during a late-August press conference when he said he was “immunized” and there was a “witch hunt” going on in the media over who was unvaccinated.
“It wasn’t some sort of ruse or lie, it was the truth,” Rodgers said.
Nevertheless, most people who heard his answer at the time assumed he was affirming he had been vaccinated. Rodgers said he would have responded to a follow-up question about being immunized.
“I would’ve said, ‘Look, I’m not some sort of anti-vax, flat-earther. I am somebody who is a critical thinker, you guys know me, I march to the beat of my own drum, I believe strongly in bodily autonomy,’ ” Rodgers said.
Sporting News highlighted Rodgers’s discontent with the NFL’s idiotic protocols:
Rodgers complained that the policies by the NFL about handling vaccinated vs. unvaccinated players is “shame-based” and has no scientific backing. He said he is required to be tested daily and that he must wear a mask, even when standing up at the podium talking to the press when he is standing further away from masked media members.
Rodgers said that he felt there was no science behind the policy that made him wear a mask in a facility where everyone had either been fully vaccinated or previously tested negative.
“It was my opinion that that wasn’t rooted in science,” Rodgers said. “Every other protocol, I’ve followed to a T.”
McAfee asked Rodgers if he felt an obligation to follow their rules, since he said others would say it is a privilege to get to play in the NFL. Rodgers responded that while he sees both sides of the argument and that the league can put in place its own policies, “I didn’t agree to any of them.”
“I didn’t sign a piece of paper that gave away my rights to live a normal season of life and I felt like I protected myself in a way that not only protected myself and my teammates,” Rodgers said. “I’ve tested over 300 times before finally testing positive. Like I said, it was probably from a vaccinated individual. I don’t think that many of their policies are rooted in science.”
He compared himself to Martin Luther King Jr., paraphrasing King’s original quote, which was “One has not only a legal, but a moral responsibility to obey just laws. Conversely, one has a moral responsibility to disobey unjust laws.”
“The great MLK said you have a moral obligation to object to unjust rules, and rules that make no sense. In my opinion, it makes no sense to me,” Rodgers said.
