After CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta admitted that his own network lied about Joe Rogan and promoted fake news that the podcast host was taking horse de-wormer, the network scrambled to clean up the mess.
Gupta appeared with Don Lemon Thursday and the pair basically ignored everything the former said on Rogan’s podcast and continued the spin that exposed them in the first instance.
After describing Rogan’s podcast as ‘tongue in cheek’, Lemon stated that Rogan “did say something about Ivermectin and that I think wasn’t actually correct about CNN and lying, okay?”
“Ivermectin is a drug that is commonly used as a horse dewormer. So it is not a lie to say that the drug is used as a horse dewormer. I think that’s important and it is not approved for COVID, correct?” Lemon asked Gupta.
Gupta replied, “That’s right. That’s correct. It is not approved for COVID. And you’re right. I mean, the FDA even put out a statement saying, you know, basically reminding people, it was a strange sort of message from the FDA, but that said, you’re not a horse. You’re not a cow. Stop taking this stuff is essentially what they said, referring to Ivermectin.”
Referring to the podcast appearance, Lemon also told Gupta “you held your own, though. It was very good,” when it was clearly an absolute horror train wreck for him.
These clowns can’t stop lying, even after they’ve been exposed. They live in a world of their own make-believe.
As Rogan has repeatedly noted, he was prescribed Ivermectin by a doctor, and it’s a common drug for human use. It is not horse de-wormer.
