Newsmax vouches for vaccines after host Rob Schmitt says shots are 'against nature'

Rob Schmitt, a primetime host for conservative television network Newsmax, has raised eyebrows after claiming in a television segment that vaccines “kind of [go] against nature.”

Schmitt, a former co-host of the Fox News early morning show “Fox & Friends First,” made the comments during a Friday night episode of his new show “Rob Schmitt Tonight.”

During an interview with cardiologist Peter A. McCullough, Schmitt declared himself to be vaccine-agnostic, neither “anti-vaxxer” or “pro-vaxxer.”

But, he said, “I feel like a vaccination in a weird way is just generally kind of going against nature. Like, I mean, if there is some disease out there — maybe there’s just an ebb and flow to life where something’s supposed to wipe out a certain amount of people, and that’s just kind of the way evolution goes. Vaccines kind of stand in the way of that.”

Wow, I thought they were kidding that right wing host would actually say that getting vaccinated and living was against nature, but then Isaw this WaPo article about Newsmax having to walk back these comments.

7. Wouldn't be surprised if he's vaxxed.

I think virtually all these Republican blowhards railing against vaccines take their own health seriously and have eventually gotten vaccinated.

15. Yep. That's what I think, too.

The Fox News hosts? Vaxxed.

Loren Boebert & Majorie Taylor Greene? Vaxxed.

This Newsmax asshole? Vaxxed.

Repubs are masters of hypocrisy.

6. That may not be the stupidest thing I've ever heard.

But if it isn't, it's probably at least in the top 5.

8. Vaccines 'go against nature', it's just that there's like 100 other 'unnatural things' I could list

off the top of my head that humans 'do in order to not die', and I'm certain I'd barely scrape the surface of ALL such things.

Ergo, my problem with this attempt at 'a point' is that 'vaccines' aren't really all THAT special of a thing in this regard.

9. "Let them die," sneered the sociopath.

"He's obviously mentally ill, but we'll continue to provide him a platform," chuckled the disinformation peddler.
