Stephen A. Smith is finally keeping that same energy with Aaron Rodgers that he had with Kyrie Irving.
Wednesday morning, Rodgers informed his teammates he tested positive for Covid-19. It was soon after reported that Rodgers was unvaccinated, a shocking revelation considering he told the public he had gotten his shot.
“Yea, I’m immunized.”
Rodgers was not vaccinated and not immunized against Covid in accordance with the NFL or CDC standards. Rodgers reportedly considered himself immunized after he used a homeopathic treatment.
For that reason, Stephen A. Smith says that Rodgers is not only a liar, but should be suspended.
“He comes across as a coward,” Smith said Thursday morning on First Take. “If you’re not vaccinated – man up and say so! He didn’t want to get vaccinated, but in the same breath didn’t want to have to deal with the questions or potential fallouts of being an unvaccinated player.”
“You didn’t want to deal with it,” Smith said of Rodgers failing to admit he was unvaccinated. “You wanted the best of both worlds. What that brings into question is what else were you that way about?”
“Not only could you not be honest about that, with a smirk on your face you tried to deceive everybody and damn it, it worked,” Smith ranted. “He said ‘yea, I’m immunized. He gave the impression that he was vaccinated and HE WAS LYING.”
