Jimmy Kimmel Says Hospitals Shouldn’t Treat Unvaccinated COVID Patients

Late-night host Jimmy Kimmel said hospitals should not extend medical care and assistance to people who are unvaccinated and tried to self-treat at home.

Kimmel kicked off his first monologue since he came back from vacation by amplifying yet another corrupt corporate media narrative about COVID-19 and medications used to treat it, such as Ivermectin.

“I leave you people alone for two months and you start taking horseworm medicine,” he said.

After taking a direct jab at Texas’ newest pro-life law, the late-night host segued into a new bit where he suggested that hospitals give care based on COVID-19 vaccination status.

“Dr. Fauci said if hospitals get any more overcrowded they’re going to have to make some very tough choices about who gets an ICU bed,” Kimmel said.

Data suggests that black Americans are one of the groups who are less likely to have received their dose of the COVID-19 shot.

“Just over a third of white Americans, or 34 percent [have] received at least one shot of the vaccine,” the Daily Mail reported at the end of July. “Comparatively, black Americans are lagging, with only 27.7 percent [having] received at least one shot so far. Additionally, black Americans … have only received nine percent of total shots despite making up 12 percent of the population.”

Those numbers, however, didn’t stop Kimmel from repeatedly taunting unvaccinated people with the threat of lower care standards in a medical emergency.

“That choice doesn’t seem so tough to me. ‘Vaccinated person having a heart attack? Yes, come right in, we’ll take care of you. Unvaccinated guy who gobbled horse goo? Rest in peace, wheezy,’” Kimmel said.

These people, Kimmel said, are “dimwits.”

“People are still taking this ivermectin. The poison control center has seen a spike in calls from people taking this livestock medicine to fight the coronavirus, but they won’t take the vaccine. 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,’” he quipped.
