Right-left, former MSNBC host Keith Olbermann blasted Americans unvaccinated against COVID-19 as “scared” and referred to them as “snowflakes” and “idiots” in a vulgar, viral video that has garnered more than two million views.
“Time to stop fooling the people who don’t get the shot,” Olbermann said when he received the COVID booster.
“Our first step, you and I, is symbols, the language we use. We call these people ‘vaccinating hesitant’, ‘vaccine skeptics’, ‘anti-wax’, we say they are protesting against mandates and passports, they are “Make a personal choice. They’re waiting for more information, they’re making a medical decision. Bulls -t! They’re scared,” Olbermann said.
OLBERMANN ACCUSED TO MAKE A ‘DEADLY TREATMENT’ FOR CAUSE ROBBY SOAVER OVER COVID MASKS
“They are afraid of being vaccinated. Stop feeding their egos what they are doing. Stop legitimizing it,” he continued as he began to shout and seem angry. “Vaccinating hesitant? They are scared! Vaccine skeptics? They are scared! Anti-wax? They are scared! They are protesting against mandates and passports? They are scared! They are making a personal choice? They are scared! They are waiting for more information? Afraid ! “
Olbermann, who was accused of threatening a “death threat” to Reason’s Robby Soave earlier this year after disagreeing with him on whether or not vaccinated people should continue wearing masks, left a high-paying ESPN concert in 2020, so he could shout political opinions online.
The famous bombastic expert has repeatedly posted the video in the middle of a feud with podcaster Joe Rogan who has not been vaccinated.
“They make a medical decision to be scared. The snowflakes are scared. Afraid of the vaccine, afraid of being proven wrong, afraid of doing what others in the world tell them to do, afraid of needles,” he said. “So there are no more pleasant euphemisms about what’s going on here. Apart from the people who have legitimate medical complications from vaccines, we have to stop fooling the idiots who don’t get shot. they are. They are all snowflakes. ”
KEITH OLBERMANN GETS AWAY FROM ESPN GIG TO BASH TRUMP AT DAILY YOUTUBE SHOW
WARNING: THIS VIDEO CONTAINS GRAPHIC LANGUAGE
Olbermann was once among the most outspoken critics of former President Donald Trump and even moved out of his luxury apartment in New York City because it was owned by him. He was much criticized as his anti-Trump book had a cover image of himself draped in the American flag, which visibly touches the ground – a violation of US flag code.

Olbermann was a popular anchor for ESPN’s “SportsCenter” in the 1990s and later a Fox Sports baseball analyst, before hosting the left-leaning opinion show “Countdown” on MSNBC from 2003 to 2011.
Since then, he has jumped between sports and political work. He rejoined ESPN in 2018, but decided to leave before the 2020 election so he could speak out against Trump.
