Jimmy Kimmel: Unvaccinated People Who’ve Taken Ivermectin Should Be Left to Die

Jimmy Kimmel calls for unvaxxed people to be denied medical care

Late-night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel says he believes unvaccinated people and those who have taken ivermectin should be denied medical treatments and left to die.

The far-left ABC star launched his all-out attack during the opening monologue of Tuesday’s show.

“It was not a fun Labor Day weekend COVID-wise,” the Hollywood elitist began, remarking on the increase in coronavirus cases from the same time last year.

“Dr. Fauci said that if hospitals get any more overcrowded they’re going to have to make some very tough choices about who gets an ICU bed,” he added. “That choice doesn’t seem so tough to me. Vaccinated person having a heart attack? Yes, come right on in, we’ll take care of you. Unvaccinated guy who gobbled horse goo? Rest in peace, wheezy.”


He continued:  “We’ve still got a lot of pan-dimwits out there. People are still taking this ivermectin. The poison control centers have seen a spike in calls from people taking this livestock medicine to fight the coronavirus, but they won’t take the vaccine, which is crazy. It’s like if you’re a vegan and you’re like, ‘No, I don’t want a hamburger, give me that can of Alpo instead.’”

Breitbart.com reports: Jimmy Kimmel was referring to reports of people taking ivermectin as an alternative treatment for the coronavirus, even though some of those reports turned out to be false. He also implied the prescription drug is used to treat horses, when it has been used for decades in both humans and animals to treat parasitic infections.

The Associated Press issued a major correction to a recent story alleging that 70 percent of poison control cases in Mississippi were linked to the drug’s ingestion.  Several days after the story ran, the AP issued a correction putting the actual number at 2 percent.

Earlier this week, Rolling Stone also issued a major correction to its article claiming overdoses of ivermectin were causing an overflow in rural Oklahoma hospitals. The story turned out to be false when the Northeastern Health System Sequoyah in Oklahoma issued a statement saying there have been no patients “due to complications related to taking ivermectin.”

In addition, the article’s main source turned out not to be a current hospital employee.

Kimmel made no reference to the botched AP or Rolling Stone reports in his monologue.

A longtime Democrat part backer, Kimmel, in 2018, helped Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti raise funds for Democrats ahead of that year’s midterm elections.
