MSNBC Host Lectures Viewers On Importance Of Getting A Fourth COVID Vaccine: ‘Here’s The Deal, Asshole’

Morning Joe host Joe Scarborough on Wednesday slammed “right-wing fans” who are skeptical of COVID-19 vaccines, saying they are a danger to their friends and family.

After saying he felt sorry for vaccine skeptics when many of them were on the political left, the newscaster said that he now “feels very sorry for the anti-vaxxers and their children, now that they’re fanatics on the right.”

He also blamed these Americans for the resurgence of “old diseases” where vaccines were no longer a threat “because these monsters spread misinformation, on Twitter, on Facebook.”

Scarborough then offered a “public service announcement” to listeners to make the case for the fourth dose of the vaccine.

“I’m just going to do this as a public service announcement for those people who really love their children and love their families and friends and want them to be healthy,” she said. “You know, yesterday when I was talking about getting COVID, and I should have gotten a fourth booster shot. A lot of these monsters said, ‘Oh, fourth booster shot, robot.’ No, listen, here’s the deal, asshole. If you get a flu shot, what do you do? Do you go to the doctor? Oh my gosh, do you want me to get my 50th flu shot? No. You get a flu shot every year.”

He then spoke as if those who were skeptical of rapidly developing vaccines to combat a pandemic were immature: “As we’re finding out with this pandemic, well, [the vaccine] it lasts six months, maybe a year. So yeah yeah. Put on your big boy pants. Put on your big girl pants.”

Scarborough later said that he spoke to a doctor about how getting vaccinated is a responsibility to society.

“As a doctor explained to me when I didn’t want to get a flu shot, Joe, you’re not just doing it for yourself. You’re doing it for everyone,” he said. “Will this keep you from getting the flu? No, but it will make the flu a little less intense. Same goes for COVID boosters. Will it keep you from getting COVID? No, but it will make the COVID less intense.” .”
