Lemon made his comments during a discussion on the CNN program “New Day.”

Lemon said, “I’ve gotten criticized for saying we should stop listening to the people and they should not be part of polite society.”

“The unvaccinated people in the U.S. are key to the reason that coronavirus, the variants are emerging,” Lemon added. “And that the reason I’m looking at the stats from the CDC and the reason why it’s replicating and mutating.”

The CNN host said unvaccinated people should not be doing their own research.

“It’s because of unvaccinated people who are doing their own research online,” Lemon said. “I can’t do my own research better than experts who devoted their lives to medical and scientific research.”

Later Lemon added, “We had to start doing things for the greater good of society and not for idiots who think that they can do their own research or that they are above the law and they can break the rules. Australia, Novak Djokovic, Australia said, ‘No, no, no, no.”

“We’re going to look at the greater good of everyone in our society, and you’re not part of that. We don’t care that you’re the number one tennis player in the world,” Lemon said, referring to Novak Djokovic, the Serbian professional tennis player who refused to get vaccinated and was not allowed to compete in Australia.

Lemon praised that country. “And good on them, because they are keeping their population and their citizens, people who want to be good citizens, they’re keeping them healthy and safe and alive, and not for someone who thinks that they can come in, do their own research, get Covid, spread it to other people, not wear masks, like the guy, the TV presenter said, and then infect all of us and keep all of us in the house, or from going to work, or from being able to do what they want to do.”

Yesterday, despite their extreme restrictions and COVID policies, Australia saw record deaths from the virus.

“That’s it. I’m done. I’m off of my soap box,” Lemon finished.
