'Rest in peace, Wheezy!': Jimmy Kimmel takes jab at unvaccinated Americans, saying they should NOT get ICU beds in hospitals

 Jimmy Kimmel wasted no time sparking controversy in his return to television Tuesday as the late-night host said unvaccinated patients should be deprived of getting ICU beds. 

'Dr. Fauci said that if hospitals get any more overcrowded they're going to have to make some very tough choices about who gets an ICU bed,' Kimmel began, noting that the number of new COVID cases is up more than 300 percent from last year.

'That choice doesn't seem so tough to me.'

'Vaccinated person having a heart attack? Yes, come right on in, we'll take care of you. Unvaccinated guy who gobbled horse goo? Rest in peace, wheezy!' 

Kimmel made his stance clear during his first episode back from a two-month long summer vacation. 

The comments were met with applause and cheers from the fully-vaccinated Jimmy Kimmel Live! audience.

There were 1.146 million weekly COVID cases this past weekend compared to 287,235 last year, according to data from John Hopkins University

While the number of cases has risen drastically, so have the average number of daily deaths, which jumped more than 131 percent, according to data from The New York Times

The number of hospitalizations and patients in ICU beds has been rising along with everything else. Hospitals in Georgia, Kentucky, and Hawaii have reported that they are running out of beds in their ICU units. 

Only 64 percent of adults are currently fully-vaccinated, which is lower than the 70 percent the country needs in its bid for herd immunity.  

The funnyman also voiced dismay at people using untested remedies to treat COVID. 

'We still have a lot of 'pandimwits' out there,' he said, pointing to the recent spike of calls to poison control centers from people taking Ivermectin

The medication most commonly administered to barn animals with parasitic diseases like worms.  


Kimmel compared people who are taking Ivermectin but refuse the vaccine to vegans who won't eat a hamburger but eat dog food.   

He also noted that some people claim to be opting for Ivermectin over the vaccine because they don't trust big pharma. Kimmel noted that Ivermectin is made by Merck - the fourth largest pharmaceutical company in the world.   

Merck has attempted to stop people from taking the medication to prevent or treat COVID.

'If a pharmaceutical company says, "Please don't take the drug we're selling." You should probably listen to them,' Kimmel said, 'or you can  just go with a TikTok posted by a disgraced veterinarian.'  


The FDA warned that the use of the drug to prevent or treat COVID 'is dangerous.' 

Last month, the FDA tweeted 'You are not a horse. You are not a cow. Seriously, y'all. Stop it.' 

The CDC also issued a health advisory warning against the use of the medication. They stated that the treatment 'is not authorized or approved' and that adverse effects caused by 'misuse and overdose' have increased. 

Kimmel then mocked radio host and conspiracy theorist, Alex Jones, who endorsed the 'dangerous' treatment over the weekend when he took Ivermectin while recording 'Info Wars.' 

He washed it down on the air with a Tropi-Choco beer, which of course Kimmel teased him about.

Podcast host Joe Rogan recently fought back against those who criticized his use of the anti-parasite drug to treat his COVID infection when he returned to the air on Tuesday. 

Rogan claimed that multiple doctors told him to take Ivermectin, among several other medications, to combat the virus, despite the FDA's insistence the drug is only meant to treat parasitic infections and not COVID.

He claims the medical cocktail helped him recover and joked that he might 'sue CNN' for slamming his use and promotion of Ivermectin. 

'They're making s*** up. They keep saying I'm taking horse dewormer. I literally got it from a doctor. It's an American company. They must know that's a lie.'

Rogan, who tested positive for COVID-19 last week, also said he was upset that some of the news agencies that covered the story did not highlight his recovery.

Last week, CNN's medical analyst Dr. Jonathan Reiner warned that what Rogan had done was dangerous.

'He's promoting, kind of a crazy jumble of, you know, sort of folk remedies and internet-prescribed drugs,' Reiner said . 'He should have more sense.'
