Stephen Colbert burned Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers with a brutal line about the concerning new COVID-19 variant on Tuesday’s episode of “The Late Show.”
“Omicron does appear to be evading vaccines. It’s a scientific phenomenon known as Aaron Rodgers,” the comedian cracked, acknowledging that “no one knows for sure” what protection existing vaccines may offer against the variant. Scientists say it will take a couple of weeks at least to find out.
Rodgers drew ire in November when he tested positive for COVID-19 and admitted he wasn’t vaccinated against the disease, despite previously indicating he was. He then spread wild coronavirus claims when challenged over his deception.
