Jimmy Kimmel says unvaccinated people shouldn't get ICU beds
Kimmel comes back with a bang
As Covid cases surge across the US, Jimmy Kimmel has come up with a controversial solution - don't give unvaccinated people beds in intensive care.
Returning to his show on Tuesday after an extended break, Kimmel did not hold back when he talked about Covid, saying it wasn't a happy Labour Day weekend as cases in the US are 300% higher than this time last year.
"Dr. Fauci said if hospitals get any more crowded, they're going to have to make some very tough choices about who gets an ICU bed," Kimmel said.
The 53-year-old said that a vaccinated person should be admitted to ICU, but "Unvaccinated guy who gobbled horse goo? Rest in peace, wheezy."
Figured Jimmy Kimmel would trend from last night. I totally agree w/ him!
After seeing a story last wk. of husband losing his wife from complications of breast cancer-couldn't get a bed due to lack of space from #unvaccinated - I have a problem w/ that!#jimmykimmel #COVID19 pic.twitter.com/kDwrM5hWnG

His statement references the growing discussion around Ivermectin being used to treat Covid. Arguably the most famous case is with internet personality and podcaster Joe Rogan.
I agree with @jimmykimmel. Vaccinated people are done playing games. If you are unvaccinated by choice, and not because you are under 12 or medically exempt, and you need medical help, go find that Fox News doctor with the demon spells. Science is officially deworming you.

Ivermectin is FDA approved but not to treat Covid, and in fact, the governing body is urging people not to take it in replacement of CDC recommended avenues.
