New York Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers took a swipe at Dr. Anthony Fauci earlier this week while talking about his grueling rehab regime that he’s undergoing in the wake of his Achilles tendon injury that he suffered in week one of this NFL season.

Rodgers Hits Out At Fauci

While appearing on “The Pat McAfee Show” on Tuesday, Rodgers boasted that he is defying science by continuing to throw on the field despite his injury.

“Aaron does things his own way,” said former Green Bay Packers linebacker A.J. Hawk, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. “He defies science.”

“Like we learned, if science is Dr. Fauci, you’re damn right I’m defying science,” Rodgers said.

Rodgers went on to talk about the surgery that he had for his injury, explaining that he wants to be smart about his return to football.

“I believe in the power of intention,” he said. “I believe in the power of your mind and the will – will power. Basically, the entire time, I kind of said this is what I’d like to do – rehab wise. Got some incredible people to work with not just the Jets.”

Rodgers praised his doctors for being “incredible to work with,” saying that they’ve helped him be “way ahead of schedule” on his comeback.

Rodgers’ Previous Fauci Comment

This is far from the first time that Rodgers has taken a shot at Fauci. Just last week, he slammed Fauci as a “pharma-crat” as he challenged Travis Kelce to a debate after the Kansas City Chiefs’ tight end took part in a promotional ad for Pfizer encouraging football fans to get the COVID-19 vaccine.

“Mr. Pfizer said he didn’t think he’d be in a vax war with me. This ain’t a war, homie. This is just conversation,” Rodgers said, according to Sports Illustrated. “If you want to have some sort of duel, debate, have me on the podcast.”

“Let’s do it like John Wick 4. So, we both have a second, somebody to help us out,” he continued. “I’m gonna take my man RFK, Jr. He can have Tony Fauci or some other pharma-crat.”

Rodgers’ Vaccine Controversy

During the COVID-19 pandemic, Rodgers came under fire for saying that he was “immunized” against the virus when asked if he had been vaccinated. He later explained that he underwent an “immunization process through a holistic doctor” because he wasn’t comfortable taking the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

“I’d been ready the entire time for this question and had thought about how I wanted to answer it,” Rodgers said afterwards, according to CBS Sports. “And I had come to the conclusion I’m gonna say, ‘I’ve been immunized.’ And if there’s a follow-up, then talk about my process. But, (I) thought there’s a possibility that I say ‘I’m immunized,’ maybe they understand what that means, maybe they don’t.

“Maybe they follow up. They didn’t follow up,” he added. “So then I go the season (with) them thinking, some of them, that I was vaccinated.”

The left turned Fauci into a god-like figure during the COVID-19 pandemic, and Rodgers has long been one of the only celebrities who has the guts to speak out against him. We applaud Rodgers for showing once again that unlike most people in the public eye, he’s not afraid to call Fauci out on his nonsense!
