Fox’s Pete Hegseth Calls for ‘Healthy People’ to ‘Have More Courage’ and Get Infected With COVID to Achieve ‘Herd Immunity’
Fox News host Pete Hegseth, an informal Trump adviser who was once considered to run the Veterans Affairs administration, called for healthy Americans on Thursday to have “courage” and step out of their homes in order to get infected by coronavirus in order to help attain “herd immunity.”
After warning that there was a “lot of misinformation” out there from “experts” about coronavirus, Hegseth—who proudly declared last year that he hasn’t washed his hands in 10 years because he doesn’t believe in germs—then said the public needs to get out and mingle.
“Now that we are learning more, herd immunity is our friend,” he exclaimed. “Healthy people getting out there—they are going to have to have some courage!”
