On Monday, Newsmax host Rob Schmitt declared that vaccines are “kind of against nature” because “something’s supposed to wipe out a certain amount of people, and that’s just kind of the way evolution goes.”
Last night Newsmax issued a cleanup statement:
Newsmax as a network strongly supports President Biden’s efforts to widely distribute the COVID vaccine. It is important for the safety of all and especially those at high risk, such as the elderly. Medical professionals who have appeared on Newsmax have strongly encouraged Americans to get the vaccine. From time to time, a guest or host may not be as supportive of these efforts. However, they do not reflect the position of Newsmax.
