Colbert: Rising Covid Cases Are Being Fueled by a ‘Dangerous Pathogen’ Scientists Are Calling the Republican Party

‘While the other half wouldn’t be able to taste the pie because they have Covid!’

RUSH EXCERPT:

COLBERT: “How’s everybody feeling tonight? That’s because you’re vaccinated. Among the unvaccinated, Covid cases are once again on the rise, due to the highly infectious delta variant. Inoculations have slowed dramatically, and less than half of the total U.S. population is fully vaccinated. So if you think of it like a pie, about half of the pie would would be vaccinated while the other half wouldn’t be able to taste the pie because they have Covid! The rising cases are being fueled by vaccine hesitancy— which itself is being fueled by a dangerous pathogen scientists are calling the Republican Party.”
