During an interview on Tuesday, future NFL Hall of Fame quarterback Aaron Rodgers dropped some truth bombs about Covid-19. Not long ago, the leader of the Green Bay Packers was banned for a game for testing positive (and being unvaccinated).
And don’t forget, Rodgers isn’t exactly a conservative. In fact, the man is a liberal – for all intents and purposes.
Then again, even a broken clock is right twice a day.
Aaron noted, “Publicly I don’t understand why we can’t talk about treatments. Because I think it needs to be not just talked about with NFL players, but with the rest of the country. …If you have Delta like I did, there’s treatment options that actually help. And if you don’t agree with the ones that I used, then let’s come up with some other ones, instead of sticking a person 10 days in isolation and not able to see anybody with zero treatment options. To me that’s just…if science can’t be questioned, then it’s not science anymore. It’s propaganda.”
He added, “What I don’t understand is vaccinated people blaming non-vaccinated people because the vaccine that they took to avoid getting the virus didn’t stop them from getting the virus.”

More from New York Post:
Rodgers claimed that behind “closed doors” many of his dubious COVID theories are being championed by some NFL teams.
Rodgers said, “I do know behind the scenes, this is 100 percent true, there are many teams who are using or recommending a lot of the same treatments that I got for their players. There are treatments being talked about behind closed doors, but publicly, I don’t understand why we can’t talk about treatments.”
He added, “I’m not some uneducated person that’s throwing stuff out there. You wanna rip on me because I took horse dewormer and whatever else you want to talk about — that’s fine. But I also got better in 48 hours and I had symptoms.”
Here’s the longer version below.
Fellow NFL superstar (and future HOFer, himself) J.J. Watt has done a lot for the communities in which he has played football over the years.
For example, after a hurricane wrecked the south a few years ago, Watt raised something like six figures toward relief.
A couple of weeks back, Watt made clear that he would pay for the funerals of those murdered by the career criminal who plowed into a Christmas parade crowd in Wisconsin – where J.J. grew up and later played college ball.
From New York Post:
The Arizona Cardinals defensive end, a Waukesha native who graduated from Peewauken High School and the University of Wisconsin-Madison, made the announcement through local media this week, Fox News said.
J.J. Watt is covering the funeral costs for everyone that lost their life in the Waukesha Christmas Parade. That is an amazing gesture. He has such a huge heart.

Darrell Brooks, a 39-year-old career criminal and wannabe rapper, is charged with five counts of first-degree intentional homicide in the case — with a sixth count pending after an 8-year-old boy succumbed to his injuries.
Just now seeing what happened at the holiday parade back home in Waukesha tonight.
Truly hoping everyone is going to be ok and those not involved are now safe.
Thankful to everyone who rushed to action and helped the wounded.
